Pamper Routine Gone Wrong

Hey guys,

So I had the idea of showing you my pamper routine, as we all need a good pamper every once in a while, especially as we've just finished Christmas and now we're back to stressful reality!

However, because it's me, I was just a bit useless really. Therefore, I thought that I wouldn't do the normal pamper routine where the lighting is good, the pictures are super pretty, and where all the products are used correctly (you'll see what I mean later in the post), and just show you exactly what happened when I tried to be a good blogger. And failed. Again.

Firstly, I applied cleanser to my face, and used the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Foam. This part actually went okay, surprisingly. I also got a nice, cheerful selfie to accompany this achievement, as I was quite proud that I had cleansed successfully. However, I do look like I'm asleep, so I apologise.

I then ran my bath and used the Fizzbanger bath bomb from Lush, which smells INCREDIBLE! Plus, it turned the bath a really cool green colour, which I definitely was not expecting! And it had a bit of paper inside that said 'Bang' in a cartoon print, which I appreciated; I love how Lush pay so much attention to detail!

Okay, here is where the issue arose. As you can see, I tried, I really did. I don't know if I just have a small head, but the face mask just kept flopping around. And didn't sit on my face at all.

I actually first put it on with the plastic on, and was very confused as to why it wasn't sticking to my face and was droopy. I then realised that I was a complete idiot, and took it off, to find that it still wouldn't work. It basically just had my life.

My boyfriend's exact words when I showed him that picture were 'you look like something out of a horror film' - fab.

I finally managed the mask to fit onto my face and got it to stay put, but it kept flopping over my mouth so I had loads of product on my lip - not nice - so yeah, as you can see, I struggled just a bit. And looked quite scary in the process.

After finally managing to work out how to put the damn thing on my face, it was actually all right, and my skin felt very hydrated. I actually got this face mask, which is the Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask, out of the November Glossybox, so it was cool to try it out!

After the stress of the face mask, everything else seemed to go to plan, apart from I sat in the bath the whole time worried about the face mask falling into the water and me not being able to get it out (don't ask why I was worried about this, but I was), which meant that I could not watch 'How I Met Your Mother' in peace. The pamper night actually made me more stressed. But at least I got a blog post out of it.

Hey, I tried to get a nice, normal photo, and it kind of worked. Apart from the jaunty angle. And the fact that my hair looks like that. Okay, it didn't work. But afterwards, I used the Estee Lauder Revitalising Supreme Moisturiser, which I am loving!

However, I will end on a high - I painted my nails for the first time in ages, yay! I used this beautiful shade from OPI called 'Red Finger and Mistletoes', and it is just the perfect shade for this time of year. To be fair, it's very Christmassy, but I wanted a nice colour after the drama with the face mask, so I just made do with the Christmas nails.

So there you have it, reasons why I am the worst blogger ever; I can't take a good photo for shit, and I get confused by applying face masks. But hey ho, it's good to be unique (well, that's what I tell myself, basically because I have no other choice but to tell myself that).

I hope you enjoyed my very eventful pamper routine, and I hope to see you all again soon!

Much love,
