Another Valentine's related post? I know, I'm on a roll this year. Whether you despise the day or love it, it's a great day to love the most important person in your life- you! It just happens to fall on a Sunday this year, meaning most of us- if you have to work, I suggest calling in sick- can spend a lazy day pampering ourselves, napping, and snacking. Farley Co. has so nicely sent me some pampering products from I Love..., 7th Heaven, and Colab plus an opportunity to give some away. Yay for giveaways, right!
I Love... Vanilla & Ice Cream Bath and Shower Creme 500 ml $9.99 CAD
A proper pamper session needs a hot bath or shower with some sort of aromatic goodness (and bubbles.) I Love... Vanilla & Ice Cream Bath and Shower Creme provides both. The scent is a really nice creamy vanilla that's not as sweet as the ice cream connotation would suggest, with a creamy formula that foams and bubbles easily. I like that the scent sticks around while bathing, but doesn't linger too long on skin afterwards. Oh, and the bottle is pretty massive for the price so you can easily load up your tub and not feel guilty about it. Win-win!
7th Heaven Masks- Dead Sea Mud 20 g, Cucumber Peel Off & Passion Peel Off 10 g $1.99 CAD
Post tub, a bit of mask time is a given. 7th Heaven (formerly Montagne Jeunesse) has a huuge variety of masks for every skin type. For deep cleansing, the Dead Sea Mud Pac is a great option, and a good way to start your routine if you're into multi-mask sessions. It deeply cleanses skin, removing impurities and cleansing pores. It can be drying on dry skin types, but following it with a moisture mask brings back the hydration.
For the slightly sick, but oh-so-fun peeling action (you know you love it) the Cucumber and Passion Peel-Off masks fit the bill. The gel-like masks cleanse skin, while removing dead skin cells revealing smoother, birghter skin when you peel it away.
COLAB Dry Shampoo Sheer Invisible in New York and Extreme Volume in Tokyo 50 ml $5.49 CAD
Okay, you might wonder how dry shampoo fits into your pamper session... It technically doesn't, but an extra half hour of sleep on any given morning not spent having to wash and dry your hair sounds pretty good, right? Colab Dry Shampoos can give you that extra sleeping time. Their Sheer Invisible and Extra Volume formulas give second day (and sometimes third day...) hair a cleansing and refreshing boost. The New York (fruity scent) and Tokyo (oriental floral scent) are new to Canada, having only been available in the UK until now. I like the added scents, and that they're light enough to not be cloying or obtrusive, but freshen hair. I find both formulas work well, but prefer the added bit of texture the Extreme Volume gives.
As for the giveaway... One lucky lady (or gent) can win a pamper pack from Farley Co. featuring the following:
- Colab Dry Shampoo in Tokyo and New York (one Sheer Invisible & one Extreme Volume)
- I Love... Vanilla Ice Cream Bath & Shower Creme
- 7th Heaven masks x3
- Super cute makeup bag (desings vary)
