I actually don’t indulge in at home pampering treatments often. It has literally been years since I had a bath and I don’t even own any bath products. I have never even tried Lush! Shocker I know. Note I said bath. I do bathe! I just shower. I have been trying to take the time to pamper myself and I will share with you the few at home pampering treatments I am trying to make a habit of treating myself to more often.
I think probably one of my favourite spa treatments would be a pedicure. I really do not find doing at home pedicures relaxing or enjoyable though. More a chore you endure to ensure you have presentable feet. It really is necessary to have it performed by someone else to qualify as “pampering”. Hmm, maybe when my daughter gets a little older I will be able to recruit her and enjoy some relaxing, albeit messy, pedicures at home! One product that has really made a huge difference for me with keeping my feet looking pretty at home is the Two Sided Foot File by Dannyco I purchased from NailPolishCanada.com. Any foot files I have picked up at drugstores and the like in the past have been a disappointment. Weak and ineffective. This foot file finally lives up to my expectations with salon quality effectiveness.
MaskerAide Sheet Masks ($4.99 CAD) are Canada’s answer to the Asian sheet mask craze. These masks truly blew me away. The formula and ingredients are truly impressive and they contain enough product you can indulge your decollate, arms, even your legs after as well. You can read my original review on one of my favourite of the six sheet masks, the MaskerAide Hydrating Sheet Mask Weather Warrior Review. Another great brand for affordable at home facial treatments is Montagne Jeunesse. They have various leave on, peel off, and sheet masks that are single use, individually packaged treatments ($1.99-$5.49 CAD) that are distributed by, and available at, FarleyCo Canada, as well as at various stores across Canada. You can see me wearing their Aloe Vera Fabric Mask above. Cute huh!
The ultimate at home spa pampering experience is getting a massage from my husband. Whether it’s a foot rub, or an all out full body massage, I can think of no better way to be pampered in the comfort of my own home. Our favourite massage oil is the Shunga Erotic Art Massage Oil. It feels incredible and smells amazing. I have heard of couples massage classes you can take to learn how to give each other massages. I would love to find one of these in my area to learn some proper techniques. Well who am I kidding? I selfishly want hubs to learn some proper techniques, although I am in now way complaining about his skills thus far.
I was going to try and give you information on some homemade spa treatment recipes but I didn’t like the thought of giving you ideas that I hadn’t tested yet on myself. Maybe another day!
