Pre Party Pamper Routine

So we're now in December and the Christmas events are in full flow. Parties, meeting with friends, nights out...the social calendar is always busy at this time of year and I have already perfected my pre party pamper routine so wanted to share it with you lovely lot. It's pretty minimalistic as I like to keep things simple and clean so these are my three perfect products.

Firstly, I exfoliate my skin with the Mandara Spa Smoothing Body Polish*. This is a cream based body exfoliator that contains coconut shell to smooth the skin, it also contains coconut oil to nourish and moisturise. It feels so luxurious on the skin that it feels like more of a treat to use rather than an effort like some others, mentioning no names. As well as ridding my body of dead skin cells and revealing bright and glowful skin it also moisturises and hydrates my skin thanks to the coconut oil.

Then I use the Body Shop Honey & Oat Face Mask. I love this stuff. It helps to smooth and refine, moisturise and condition and gently exfoliates the dead skin cells away. Because of the cold weather, central heating and amount of makeup that's piled onto my skin at this time of year for all the Christmas parties my skin doesn't know whether it's coming or going and this mask just helps to keep it calm, soothed and moisturised. It's also a great mask for giving the perfect Christmas glow. I can't even tell you how it does it but whenever I use this mask my skin is left with the most beautiful lit from within glow. I always apply this mask in the day/afternoon before I'm going out as a sort of pre mask as it gives the perfect glowy base for my makeup.

Then lastly I slather a load of this Soap & Glory Glow Lotion onto my legs, arms and decolletage to give a radiant finish to the skin. I love this stuff, it doesn't contain any glitter or shimmer it jut gives the most beautiful healthy glow to the skin and believe you me a little goes a very long way with this stuff.

So they're my top picks when I'm getting pampered for a Christmas party. What are yours?
