Pampering My Skin with Estée Lauder
I've been pampering my skin with a wonderful nighttime skin care routine by Estée Lauder. It's so relaxing and enjoyable to take some time to treat my skin to a super hydrating, restorative system that pampers my skin while I drift off peacefully to sleep.
Estée Lauder has created highly effective products that ideally work at night while your skin repairs and rejuvenates itself. Estée Lauder's night repair products take advantage of this perfect time to further enhance the skin's repairative properties while you relax and enjoy a restful night.
Setting Aside Some Time to Indulge with Estée Lauder
I've really begun looking forward to my special time in the evening when I get to indulge in my Estée Lauder nighttime system. It's so great to have some time to yourself to care for your skin and feel good knowing you're treating yourself. It's important to set aside some time to enjoy little pleasures in life to create peace and relaxation.
I enjoy my Estée Lauder time sometimes right before bed, after I brush my teeth, or sometimes a little earlier in the evening. I may do my Estée Lauder beauty treatment, and then unwind with a little TV or something good to eat. If I enjoy my skin care treatment a little closer to bedtime; it's nice to get right into bed, nice and cozy, and smell the pleasant scent of my Estée Lauder rich luxurious night cream on my face and neck. It's a comforting feeling to smell that wonderful scent, as a reminder I took some time to pamper and care for my skin.
I've been enjoying stepping away into the bathroom, shutting the door and disappearing for a short time into an Estée Lauder get-away. These wonderful Estée Lauder products can be applied and enjoyed anywhere...in the bathroom, at a vanity table, in bed...wherever you enjoy your pamper time.
How I Apply My Estée Lauder Nighttime Products
I begin my Estée Lauder nighttime skin care routine by applying Estée Lauder Micro Essence, to create the perfect base for applying my other products. Micro Essence is a skin activating treatment lotion. I apply it after I've cleansed my skin, and it works great either applied with my fingertips or with a cotton pad. It feels very moisturizing yet lightweight, and as though it is creating a nice, smooth, clean palate to increase the effectiveness of the other products. They sink right into my skin quite well.
After I've created a good base with my Micro Essence, I apply my Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum (Synchronized Recovery Complex II). The serum is so rich and decadent, just a tiny drop goes a long way. All of the Estée Lauder nighttime skin care products are high-quality so you don't need very much to cover your skin. The repair serum, as well as the Micro Essence and eye repair are also lightly scented. The night cream has a more noticeable, pleasant, floral scent.
I like to smooth my Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum all over my face, neck and even a tad bit around my eyes. It's so moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling hydrated with a beautiful glow. It sinks into my skin wonderfully and leaves it with a lightweight finish. I can see the radiance but there is no heavy residue, just a nice, smooth feel.
I add some extra protection and pampering to my delicate eye area with my Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye (Synchronized Complex II). It has a super rich texture and creates a thick layer to treat, soothe and give the eye area some special attention. I take a tiny bit and apply it with my ring finger. It is so rich, you only need to lightly dab a small amount sparingly. It smooths into the skin well, creating a lightweight finish. It also leaves a beautiful radiance.
Finally, I like to seal in all of the protective and repairative benefits of my Estée Lauder nighttime routine with my Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Night (Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Creme). It has a lovely, relaxing scent that's perfect for drifting off to sleep, while all of the products work together to repair, smooth and soften. It has a rich, thick texture that makes my skin feel hydrated, moisturized and comforted. It leaves a nourishing glow that compliments the radiance of the other products.
When I wake up in the morning, after using my Estée Lauder nighttime routine, and I cleanse my face, my skin feels amazing. It feels so soft and smooth. I feel so good knowing I took some time the previous evening or night to give my skin such a well-deserved treatment. We all deserve to take a little time to care for ourselves and enjoy some relaxation. It's wonderful Estée Lauder has created this effective yet super enjoyable, relaxing beauty treatment we can indulge in while we sleep. I'm looking forward to enjoying more Estée Lauder pamper time.

Skin Care for Brightening
I’ve been testing out some skin care products and just loving them! The first awesome discovery I’ve made is Farmacy’s Brightening Sheet Masks. Farmacy uses exclusively farm-grown botanicals in their beauty products. They’re a company that truly cares about providing the highest quality, all natural ingredients in their skin care products.
Afterward, I could immediately feel a difference in my skin. It felt so soft, hydrated and smooth. I felt as though it had been nourished, pampered and I had done a little something special to help take care of it. I’ve been enjoying continuing to use Farmacy’s masks and put in that little extra pampering time to take care of my skin.
Here are Farmacy’s skin care products so you can check them out:
Skin Care for Firming
The next skin care product I recently tested out is GlamGlow’s mud mask firming treatment. It may be a mud mask, but it’s a really cool silver color! It has a unique pearlescent type of look to it. Very fun to use! It also has nourishing all natural ingredients like Marshmallow and Licorice Leaf for toning and firming.
I would advise that with this mask, you use a sparing amount. I could definitely feel the toning aspect and a bit of a tingle. I also felt as though, because it’s a mud mask, it was helping to extract any impurities in my skin. Afterward, I definitely did feel as though my skin was toned, firmed and quite smooth.
This mask seems like a great treatment to turn to if you would like a nice firmed, lifted, toned feeling to your skin. As well as, a good treatment if you feel you would like a good thorough cleansing to your skin, to clean deep down and extract any impurities. After using this mask, I now understand why the packaging is on the smaller side. You definitely only need a tiny amount to fully cover your face; and it’s best to be sparing due to the thorough cleansing and tingling effects. You wouldn’t want to over do it with this mask. A little goes a long way.
Here are GlamGlow’s skin care products for you to check them out:
Yummy Skin Care for Nourishing
A yummy skin care treat I’ve been enjoying is a lemony delicious hand and body lotion from Not Soap Radio. Not Soap Radio’s skin care products include inspiring phrases, as well as nourishing, all natural ingredients.
Their yummy lemony lotion definitely has that uplifting aromatherapy element their skin care products are known for. It also has soothing, softening ingredients like aloe, cucumber, green tea, sea kelp, grapefruit, sweet almond oil, bee pollen… just to name a few. It’s amazing the goodies you’ll find in their skin care products!
Not Soap Radio’s lemon lotion feels extremely light weight yet very nourishing and hydrating. A perfect balance. You only need a little bit for that silky, luxurious feel that leaves a radiant glow on your skin. I’m looking forward to continuing to enjoy that lemony lift and smooth silky feeling.

I sure am having fun testing out new skin care products and treating my skin to some nice pampering. It’s great to have access to quality skin care products with all natural ingredients that are healthy for my skin, and also have delightful scents that make my relaxation time even better!
12 Benefits Shampoo
I’ve been enjoying adding moisture and nourishing my hair with 12 Benefits hair care products. 12 Benefits Love at First Lather shampoo is a light fluffy mousse that cleanses my hair gently without stripping. It has a lovely, natural fresh scent reminiscent of fresh flowers. It feels good knowing the all natural ingredients in 12 Benefits hair care products are helping to hydrate and rejuvenate my hair.
12 Benefits Love at First Lather shampoo has wonderful ingredients like coconut oil and sunflower seed extract to help restore my hair’s moisture balance. It’s also awesome 12 Benefits provides guidance and tells us exactly how many pumps of mousse to dispense. I think it’s great this provides a bit of control so you don’t use too much product and perhaps over wash your hair; although I doubt it would be too possible to over strip your hair with this product because it provides such gentle cleansing.
12 Benefits Conditioner
A light mist leaves a beautiful scent I can enjoy throughout the day. You can also freshen up with a nice spritz of 12 Benefits Hair Perfume into dry hair.
What a great way to add that extra aromatherapy element to hair care! 12 Benefits Love at First Lather shampoo and 12 Benefits Conditional Love hair moisturizer both smell so wonderful on their own, but adding that extra finishing touch of 12 Benefits Hair Perfume makes the whole experience even better!
12 Benefits Hair Perfume not only smells fabulous, it also includes nourishing essential oils to further moisturize your hair. Ginger, Papaya and Awapuhi oils are some of the delightful natural treats included in this wonderfully scented hair perfume.
I’m really enjoying using 12 Benefits hair care products to strengthen my hair; and restore my hair’s shine and moisture. 12 Benefits hair care does such an amazing job using all natural, healthy ingredients to rejuvenate, protect and seal in moisture. You can truly feel the products sinking right into your hair.
It’s so comforting to know 12 Benefits Love at First Lather is cleansing my hair in the most gentle way possible, and avoiding stripping vital moisture from my hair. The delicious candy scent of 12 Benefits Conditional Love is absolutely a lovely pampering treat to soothe my hair with rich oils that provide much needed moisture. It’s great to have the option to use it as a hair mask treat as well. The awesome finishing touch of a delightful spritz of 12 Benefits Hair Perfume ties everything beautifully together.

My Awesome Ipsy Items
My Ipsy glam bag arrived and it’s rockin! Just love the products I received and had so much fun trying them out. The brands and items included in my glam bag were really cool, high-quality in generous amounts.
I started my experience of my Ipsy products by relaxing and cleansing my face with the Rodial Stem Cell Cleansing Cream. It feels so rich, creamy and soothing. It can also be used as a mask. Just leave it on your skin for 15 minutes. My skin has felt so moisturized and hydrated after using it, that it kind of feels like I’ve also applied a moisturizer. That’s how hydrating it is. Ipsy definitely did a good job providing me an awesome skin care product based on my preferences. That’s the great thing about Ipsy. You just tell them what types of products you’d like to receive, and they tailor your bags just for you.
Just let Ipsy know a little about yourself (e.g. skin tone, hair color, hair type, skin type), and they’ll send you products based on what you would like for your skin and hair. You can also let them know what type of make-up looks you'd like to receive and how adventurous you are with make-up. I decided to get super adventurous and let them know I’m open to pretty much any type of make-up they’d like to send me. This has been such a fun experience and I’m really looking forward to receiving more cool, fun bags!
Each month Ipsy sends us a unique cool make-up bag we can store all of our goodies in.
Pampering My Hair & Skin with Ipsy
I really love how pampered I’m feeling enjoying my Ipsy products. My glam bag also had a luxurious hair mask by the renowned Celebrity Hair Stylist, Peter Lamas. It’s so cool getting to try all of these exceptionally high-quality products. Ipsy did such a great job sending me a hair care product that fit my preferences to a tee! I can’t wait to receive more awesome, high-end products to pamper my skin and hair. You can really feel and even smell the caliber of these products. They all have such a good-quality, fresh scent. So relaxing and enjoyable to use everything!
I enjoyed Peter’s 5 Oil Hair Treatment Mask during a relaxing shower and saw an amazing difference in my hair afterward. It felt so nourished, moisturized, smooth, silky, and of course smelled fabulous! I find it so helpful that Ipsy is leading me down the right path, and introducing me to products to help improve the health of my hair and skin. Such a great resource!
Beautiful Make-up From Ipsy
Right now while I’m writing this blog post, when you click on my link it mentions something to the effect of, “Thank Paula for not being on the Wait List”. Sometimes there’s a Wait List so get in on these bags as soon as possible. I’m not sure if you will have the opportunity to receive the same exact products I did, since each bag is individually tailored to your preferences. If you’d like to purchase these products individually, just check them out via this blog post, and bear in mind they're becoming increasingly popular so some may be sold out. I’ve included an array of products here so you can still have access to some of them.

Shower Items for Relaxation
Suave has also designed a delicious line of shower items for pampering and indulging in a relaxing get-away during your shower time. It’s great to have a break and feel like you’re escaping into a tropical island or beautiful field of flowers. Another wonderful way I relax and enjoy a peaceful retreat is with Suave’s line of body washes. Here are a few I enjoy:
A great old standby are Dove beauty bars. They’re always gentle, soothing and great for nourishing my skin. I particularly like their shea butter bars.
Shower Items for Exfoliation
Scented shower items work even better when combined with items with exfoliating properties. They also help your body washes and beauty bars last longer. I just drizzle a few drops of my favorite products on a pampering puff, my awesome shower gloves or exfoliating face pad. They all help to distribute my items while exfoliating my skin. My skin feels even softer and smoother! Here are a few I love:
Great Shower Items for Grooming
Grooming is always key as a finishing touch, and there are so many awesome shower items out now that combine grooming and fabulous scents. Venus has made our shaving experience even better, by adding delightful aromas to their razors and shave gels. Not only can we enjoy smooth, well-groomed skin, but we can enjoy the process. Skintimate and Pure Silk also make some delectably-scented shave gels and creams. Here are a few I have a great time using:
Don’t forget those added little touches that tie the grooming experience together. I also keep some helpful shower items in reach that further pamper me and are quite effective. A handy shower comb helps with detangling and an effective pumice keeps my feet as soft as the rest of my skin. Here are some helpful ones:
I love shower time and discovering amazing shower items to make my shower experience even more enjoyable. Create a magical experience for yourself to enhance your feeling of peace and enjoying a fantastic get-away!
