Recipe for the best bath ever

A bath is probably one of my favorite things ever!! There's nothing like coming home from a long day in work to a good old bath. Long gone are the days of a splash of Radox and away you go, nope, the humble bath is now a place where we can tune out and chill. And so here's how I roll.

I usually opt for a really nice bath oil, like this beautifully scented Sage one from Dr Hauschka. It smells yummy and adds a bit of luxury. It doesn't foam amazingly well, so if like me you do like your bubbles, pop in something else to get a nice lather.

Next up are the Epsom salts. I add a scoop of these to the bath as they are great for detoxing the body and personally I think they help to take down any bloatedness. If my skin is really dry I spoon in some coconut oil which is fantastic for softening the skin, and then add some to my hair as a mask. I then pop on a face mask, light the candles, grab some magazines and hey presto, you've got yourself a night at the spa. Well, sorta.

Love at first swipe

Ok, so I'm a newbie to the NARS brand as such. I only have one other item which is the multiple in Copacabana, but other than that it was a brand that I just never visited much.

After a lot of blog reading and you tube video reviews, I caved and bought the NARS creamy concealer, and as pathetic as this is to say, I have never been happier in my life to find a product that works!!!
This stuff is amazing. The product has had a lot of beauty blogger lovin, however I'm not usually one to buy something based on hype and I just never thought I would find a concealer that was this good. So after much debate, I went and bought this bad boy as I was passing Brown Thomas, as you do.

The concealer is extremely creamy so this makes it perfect for under the eye area and around the nose, but it also covers blemishes unbelievably well, probably better than anything I have used and I've tried out my fair share. NARS offer a really good range of shades, even ones for Irish pale skin, yay, so you can be sure there will be something for nearly everyone.

NARS is available here from Brown Thomas, and I have a feeling I'm probably gonna be in there a bit more.

Just for a look of course.
