When I saw Becki's (Life Looks Perfect) post about her bedside beauty products, it inspired me to create this one! It's something that most of us have, but I've not seen many of these posts and I'd love to see more! It's also something which can be updated every so often.
I think my favourite time of day is getting into bed - especially at this time of year! As I work nightshifts for seven consecutive nights, when I do actually get to go to bed at night, I truly cherish it and it's nice to be able to enhance the experience with some lovely beauty products.
Along with my iPhone, current book and, at this time of year, fluffy socks, I also like to keep a few beauty products within easy reach of my bedside. These currently include the following:
After a long day (or night!), when your feet are achy and tired, it's really nice to slather on a luxurious foot treatment to soften and nourish your feet. I love this foot balm from Lulu & Boo; it's got a lovely mousse-like texture and smells faintly of tea tree - one of its anti-septic and anti-fungal ingredients. It also contains marshmallow extract and shea butter to soften, soothe and heal your feet. I absolutely love the packaging of this product!
When I first got my hands (sorry...) on this product, I wasn't too pleased with it as at the time (last Winter), my poor hands were severely dry, cracked and sore and this only seemed to irritate them further. But, recently I've been reaching for this again and it's doing a lovely job of keeping my hands moisturised. Hopefully this will help prevent my hands from cracking and becoming sore. This has a lovely essential oils scent which is relaxing to use.
I bought this last year, I think, and it's a lovely spray to use before going to bed as it helps me drift off to sleep a little easier. The lavender and chamomile scent is very soothing and relaxing. Once finished, I'll be looking for a cruelty-free alternative - I might even try making my own!
