A few days ago Dylan and I went for an incredibly long walk – I think our final tally was something like 12 kms – and after my entire body ached. Every time I moved my leg muscles yelled at me and I figured there was only one thing to do to fix it. Sure I could exercise more, but why do that when I could just take a bath?
While the water was heating up (because it takes ages in this old apartment) I removed my makeup (or what was left of it) with the newest addition to my makeup remover wardrobe – Nivea’s Micellar Cleansing Water. I haven’t tried Bioderma or the much-loved Garnier Micelllar water, but I have tried Ko Gen Do’s take and this one works just as well as that one on the makeup removal front. I only ever use it as a first cleanse, swiping off my makeup with cotton pads, but it gets the majority of the makeup off anyway. Mascara is a little more troublesome, so I often go in with a tiny bit of coconut oil to get rid of the rest of that, but I have to do that with most makeup removers anyway.
Once my face was clean, I opened Montagne Jeunesse’s White Chocolate Mask. If you can, take a sniff of this because oh boy is it nice. I wouldn’t say it’s super chocolatey smelling, more chocolate with a hint of cherries. It’s not what I was expecting but it was certainly nice. This is a mask that gets deep into the pores to get rid of any gunk that might be trying to clog ’em up. It’s not as effective as a clay mask on that front but it’s also not as drying so it was exactly what I needed.
By this time my water was nice and steamy so I started to fill the tub and added in Belcam Bath Therapy’s Mint & Rosemary Bubble Bath, Body Wash and Shampoo. I only use this as bubble bath, and truth be told I actually bought it for Dylan for Christmas, but it’s such a nice, relaxing scent that I like to sneak some every once in a while. It reminds me of a spa in scent and you only need a tiny amount to get a whole lot of bubbles.
All that was left after that is to hit play on Netflix and soak those sore muscles. Mmmmm.
