My Weekend Beauty Routine
I love weekends. Two days that are only mine. No plans, no tasks - just living in the moment. I have my weekend rituals: sleep as much as possible, drink coffee with condensed milk (seriously, it beats latte with caramel syrup) and do my beauty routine. This is what I am most excited about because giving some love and care to your body always boosts up the mood.
There were times when I experimented with natural products (like this Oatmeal Face Mask) but now I am using packed goods. These are my favourite beauty products that I use to pamper myself after busy workweek and prepare for relaxing weekend.
I feel like it needs special care after constant using of hair straightener. Recently I discovered this brand Alterna Haircare - it is made of ecological ingredients and does magic to my hair (btw, Katie Holmes is on board !). After washing I put Alterna Caviar Replenishing Moisture Masque for 5-10 minutes. It smells lemon-ish (like everything from their Caviar Series) and makes hair smooth, shiny and reduces frizz (after first time using it and drying hair my jaw dropped - the hair was so-o smooth). What I like the most is that these products (I also use Caviar Replenishing Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner) nourish hair from the inside so they get healed at the same time.
Christian Breton Masque De Beaute Dry Skin saved my skin last spring. I was using it 2, 3, 4 times a week (wa-ay more than recommended). During summer I didn't feel like my face needed extra care but now it's getting cold and windy so I am happy that my face mask is back. Basically it is like a very powerful face cream because you do not need to wash the mask off (though you can if you want). It infiltrates into skin in 5-10 minutes leaving it moisturised and oh-so-healthy-looking.
My first ever eye cream Christian Breton Precious Gold Eye Cream (girl, you're 25 - it's time !!). I've been using it for half a year every evening and must report results: dark circles under eyes have disappeared. I don't have wrinkles yet so I have no practical prove of its power on them BUT I feel like it could work in this field too. You know, caviar and gold...
I am not the girl who's taking any chance to cover herself into lotions and creams but once a week I nourish my skin with something. This The Body Shop Vanilla Body Butter have been discontinued and I managed to get the last one on the previous sale. Miks says that I am smelling as pastry but it's ok for me !
Wow, this post turned out longer than I planned. Nevertheless, looks like rain is coming so I am going to read Fifty Shades, watch Season 2 of Bunheads and eat cookies. Let me know in comments below what is your weekend like ? Do you have a routine ? What are your favourite beauty products right now ?
Thank you for reading and sharing your current reading list ! Have great weekend !
