There seems to be a bit of a pre-bedtime routine theme running on the blog this week. Today I've decided to feature some more products that I've been loving at bath time on a Sunday evening.
I spotted the Dirty Works Cucumber Eye Pads* on a couple of blogs and I was so intrigued about them. I don't really suffer from puffy eyes or bags (at least I don't think my bags are too big!) but it's always good to give that area a little treat. The pads themselves are pre-moistened with soothing cucumber & aloe vera and come in sealed packets, perfect for popping on when you're in the bath. They're super soothing and cooling too, you can make them even more cooling by popping them into the fridge before use as well, perfect for the hot weather.
I've never tried anything like this before and it was a bit strange and tricky not to open my eyes. I definitely wouldn't recommend opening your eyes, even a bit as you'll definitely get the cucumbery juices in them, not that they stung too much though!
After using the pads I felt like the area round my eyes felt really soft and soothed. They're ideal if you've had little sleep the night before or are particularly stressed out and puffy. I'd definitely recommend as a little Sunday evening pick-me-up!
The Buff Your Stuff scrub* is also another cute, cheap and cheerful product I've been using for a couple of weeks now. I particularly like using the scrub on my legs before shaving to counteract shaving rash. The scrub itself contains sweet almond oil, which smells amazing and helps leave my legs feeling lovely and soft. The only thing I would say is that I'd prefer it is had more scrub beads in it. I feel like it needs more when I rub it in, I like to really feel the 'scrub' over my skin if that makes sense.
Overall I'm pretty impressed with these two products. They're the perfect purse friendly beauty treats and are easily available in your local Sainsburys!
