Wake Up, Feel Good, Get Right!

Mornings are make or break for me, if I wake up right it's guaranteed I will have a productive, positive day. Lately there have been a few products that really give me that 'Feel good factor' first thing in the mornings - These leave me feeling uplifted, invigorated and ready for whatever the day has in store. 




Radical Hydrating Cleanser
I absolutely adore this cleanser, it's honestly it's one of my favourite products in my morning routine at the moment. While I prepare to sing it's praises I'm going to keep it real - I don't like this cleanser in the evenings - in my opinion it doesn't do a thorough enough cleanse nor does it remove all traces of make up. Mornings, however it's refreshing on the skin and the lightweight texture, leaves my face feeling hydrated throughout the day. I have used this daily for the last two months and I absolutely love it, did I mention it smells divine?

Rituals Foaming Shower Gel 
Rituals bath and body products are becoming firm favourites in my daily routine and the 'Flower Power' foaming shower gel is the latest limited edition Summer instalment from the brand. I love the feel of foaming products against my skin and the smell of this is fabulously floral from white lotus and incredibly fresh from bergamot -  It's like a little slice of Summer in a bottle! 

Aromatherapy Associates Revive Morning 
Aromatherapy Associates bath and shower oils are usually the ultimate treat for the perfect pampering evening, they are amazing to unwind with and always allow me to relax - but who's to say pampering is only for the evenings? The Revive Morning on the other hand is a zesty blend of uplifting essentials oils, which instantly liven me up. Pink grapefruit, juniper berry and rosemary really help you shrug off that slumber and encourage you to wake up right. I usually massage a small amount on to my chest and as soon as the hot water hits me I'm awake and exhilarated! 

Espa Hydrating Floral Spafresh Spritzer 
Keeping my skin hydrated is essential and as soon as I'm out the shower I love to spritz my skin with this little delight from Espa. The rose scent is beautiful and it instantly refreshes my face in preparation for morning skin care routine.  I also love to apply this right before I go to the gym, not only does it wake me up but it keeps my skin feeling energized

Liz Earle EyeBright 
No matter how much sleep I get I always suffer from tired eyes in the morning, it's particularly worse in the Summer because of Hayfever and the amount of pollen in the air. The Liz Earle EyeBright is the perfect product to gently soothe, calm and cool the eye area before approaching the day. I apply a small amount to cotton pads and let them rest on my eyelids for a few minutes. My eyes feel instantly refreshed and at that very moment I truly feel awake and ready to rumble!  




These are just some of  the products I like to use in the morning to really make me feel more..human? 
Like I said.. Who says pampering is only for the evenings? 

Have any of you tried these? I have to say, starting my Monday with a few of these has really made me feel hopeful for a great week! Hope you all have one too.. 

Lots of Love

  2. I agree! evening pamper only lasts till you go to sleep, but a great start in the morning holds up the entire day on its shoulders! :-) I haven't tried your picks but I have a tiny stash which I love using in the morning "especially" too!
