My Summer Pampering Routine | Testing New Beauty Products

Self-care is one of my favorite things to do. I love indulging in a bubble bath with my favorite face mask on. I decided to pick up some new products to experiment with.


Depending on my schedule, I do this routine 1-2 times a week:


Haircare.

I'm always switching up my shampoos and conditioners. Lately, I've been using The Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Smooth & Sleek Daily Conditioner by Pantene. (I'm also a huge fan of their rescue shots!)

Body.

I usually let my body soak for 10-15 minutes and then proceed with my shower routine. Step 1: Exfoliate! My summer go-to is the Exfoliating Body Polish Kiwi Seeds & Cool Aloe by Dove. After a day out in the sun, this product nourishes my skin while it removes dead cells.

Step 2: Shave! Way back when, Bath & Body Works released their Active Skincare line. Needless to say, I was a huge fan. I stocked up on 5 bottles of their Shave + Shower 2-1 Body Oil Cleanser. The formula allows me to get a super close shave.

Meditation.

Being a psychology major, I know the importance of practicing mindfulness. I like to practice mindfulness in the bath tub-- it's so peaceful! I really like the Meditation Minis Podcast on Spotify.



Hair.

I picked up a bunch of new haircare products. However, today, I was feeling an oil treatment. This leaves my hair feeing super smooth and looking shiny as ever.

Face.

All of my favorite products are being discontinued-- including my favorite Peter Thomas Roth Cleanser. I like to start off my skincare routine with a foam cleanser to remove any makeup or sweat. Then, I follow up with a gentle exfoliator. (My skin is pretty sensitive!) I've been using the St. Ives Acne Control Apricot Face Scrub. Pro-tip: add water to any scrub to decrease the intensity. Now, it's time for a mask! I choose a mask according to my skin needs.

I also like to exfoliate my lips and apply an oil-based product to them. Mmm! And, I can't forget about my eyes! I usually have a sample of eye cream lying around somewhere. I recently got a sample from Sephora I tried out the other day. I'm a big fan! Oh-- and, I almost forgot! My eyebrows! I simply trim them and tweeze any stray hairs. I learned early on in my teenage years that eyebrows can make or break you.

Body.

I am a huge fan of using aloe based products during the summer. I love this lotion from Vaseline.



I usually lay around in my robe for a good 1-2 hours before getting dressed. It's so soft! I like to watch reality TV on Hulu (Married At First Sight-- yes, please)! I also like watching movies on Netflix. Anything by Disney has got my name on it.
