As someone who is a nine-to-fiver by day and a blogger by night, I rarely get the time to go out and get pampered so when I hear that there are products to bring the spa to home, I get pretty damn excited. Enter, ASPAR. Aurora Spa has enlisted the expertise of their therapists to create a range of botanically active products that have been tried and tested in-spa. This means that each product is professional and spa-strength.
I’ve been using all of the four following products for the past few weeks now and they have proven, to me, to be very relaxing whilst providing benefits in their own way. You really feel like you’re being pampered all in the comfort of your own home. What’s more is that these rituals can be tied into your daily routine without taking anymore time than your current day-to-day personal care tasks.
The aroma of the Rose & Aloe Body Cleanser is so soothing, perfect when you you just want to unwind in the shower. I’ve used this with their Exfoliating Body Mitt (which you only need to use once a week – it’s a very deep exfoliation) and it feels absolutely brilliant. Consider your dead skin wiped.
Use this after your shower, following the above body cleanser, and you’re sure to get even more relaxed. Like its name suggests, it deeply hydrates the skin – but unlike other ‘rich’ creams, the consistency of this isn’t thick which makes it easier to apply and doesn’t leave you with that oily feeling. It’s formulated with shea butter and the aroma smells of rose geranium, sandalwood and lavender pure essential oils.
This is a light yet deeply hydrating eye cream. What I love about this is that it is quickly absorbed into the skin which means that, after applying in the morning, you can start to apply makeup not longer after. Use this one morning and night to unlock its full potential. For a how-to in applying this cream and extra details on the ingredients, click here.
Following on from the eye cream, spray this baby onto a damp cotton wool cloth and smooth over your face, neck and décolletage after cleansing and before moisturising. This is a gentle and hydrating spray that rebalances and rehydrates your skin while neutralising skin impurities. You can also use this as a pick-me-up throughout the day, even over makeup. Tip: put the spray in the fridge before use for more refreshing feel.
