My new flat has a bath. And after not having on in my life for over 15 years, it’s an exciting and rather novel thing to me! So I now have a weekly bath (albeit it’s often on a Saturday), and I thought I’d share with you the products I’m currently working my way through while I lounge in the bath!
I’m not particularly a bath bomb person, but I love a bit of bubble bath! Typically I use something cheap and cheerful like Radox, but there’s something about bubbles in a bath… I’m just a child ok!
I usually have a bath in the evening, and so stage one is removing makeup. I’m currently using the Eve Lom Cleanser. I’m enjoying it, and it’s a really luxurious way to get your face feeling clean without that tight feeling. But it does have quite a strong scent, and it’s not very good at removing really stubborn makeup. Sometimes I use my Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser.
I have bleached hair, and my hair runs rather warm. Which means I’m forever keeping on top of it to make sure it doesn’t go yellow. I used to use the Provoke Touch of Silver Toning Treatment Mask (which I still really enjoy as an FYI), but recently we all know I’ve become obsessed with the Function of Beauty shampoo. I leave it in my hair for around 5 mins to really leave my blonde looking fresh.
Cleansing or Purifying Mask
As I tend to double mask in the bath (yes, I’m that person), I love to start off with a more cleansing or purifying mask! Something like a clay mask or the Summer Fridays Overtime Mask. Apply it on my face, and let it sit while I soak (and usually watch a YouTube video or two, you really can’t go wrong!
Love a good hair mask! I’m currently working my way through the Maui Moisture Hair Care Shea Butter Hair Mask. It’s a really thick and hydrating hair mask… I feel like it’s a little thick and heavy on my hair type (Maui is more geared towards women of colour, but I have had wonderful experience with their shampoo and conditioner and so thought I’d try their mask), so sometimes I just use the Function of Beauty conditioner as a hair mask.
Hydrating Face Mask
Remember that double face mask thing I was talking about? Yeah, I nearly always follow up my first face mask with a super hydrating face mask! Currently I’m working my way through and really enjoying the No.7 Beautiful Skin Hydrating Mask. You apply a thick layer, rub it in, leave it for 5 mins and wash it off. And it leaves your face feeling SO SO soft!
Post Bath Moisturiser
I’m dreadful at remembering to moisturise my body! And pretty much the only time I remember is post a bath. I mix up what I use every time (as I’m a little fickle) but it’s either a Body Shop Body Butter or something like my This Works Sleep Body Cocoon (which has the perfect pre-bedtime scent!)
Post Hair Wash Serum
We all know I’m OBSESSED with my John Freida Frizz Ease Serum. It helps my hair look and feel super soft, control frizz and helps my hair hold it’s style (especially straightened). I was never convinced by hair serums before, but now I’m 100% all over it!

And there you have it! I tend to shower in the morning (hence the lack of soap) and I shave in the shower. But, they’re all the products I use when I’m having a super relaxing bath time routine!
