Beauty Bedside Essentials.


There's always the odd beauty product I like to apply right before I hit the sack. Although I do my skincare routine in the bathroom, there's some miscellaneous products which stay right here on my bedside table. Stuff like hand cream and lip balm, I much prefer to use before bed so I know they are going to sink in properly without me disturbing them too much.

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray: I know that 99.9% of the world population use and love this, and I totally believe it's worth the hype. If you're slightly sceptical of this, I get it, is there something that can actually send you off to sleep? Well, technically no, however it does an amazing job at creating a super relaxing atmosphere to make the task of falling asleep a lot easier. I spray this around my room 10 minutes before bed, so when I'm ready to sleep I feel totally calm and switched off.  It's infused with lavender and chamomile, so as you can imagine, it smells amazing.

Nourish Refreshing Toning Mist: Using something refreshing before bed may seem strange, but as the weather has been so hot and muggy here in the UK, this has been a total life saver. I hate going to sleep when I feel hot and sticky, it's never a nice feeling, so a few spritz of this really cools me down. It's also packed full of great skincare benefits that tone and hydrate the skin so I love it. The smell is also beautiful, quite rosy, yet very fresh and spa like.

Lanolips Intense Rose Hand Cream: I always use hand cream before bed, I can't stand to use it during the day when I'm doing things, I find it's just a faff. This one does sink in very quickly, and the smell is a gorgeous subtle rose, nothing to overpowering. The packaging is also so cute, very retro and look gorgeous sat on my bedside table. As the packaging suggests, it's an intense formula, so it does a great job at hydrating the hands, something many of us forget to do!

Glossier Balm Dot Com: Glossier is the brand of moment I feel, everyone is talking about them. In the UK, we aren't able to get hold of them YET, but they are coming!! To hold you over, you can pick up their Balm Dot Com from Net-a-Porter, which is exactly what I did. It's a very simple, vaseline-like formula which works great as a lip balm to plump and hydrate. The smell I'm not crazy about, it's kind of plasticy, but I do like how it feels on the lips. The packing is enough for me to want to pick up another one!
