How To Give Yourself An At Home Spa Day

September 19, 2017

I’ve been back in Toronto for a few weeks now and my goodness let me tell you it’s good to be
home. There’s no denying that I love spending time on the east coast, but after a month of
sleeping either on a couch or a bed that is much too small, I am sooooo happy to get back to my
regular routine! When we arrived back in Toronto, I wanted to take an afternoon to completely
pamper myself because I was feeling sore from my uncomfortable sleeping arrangements,
exhausted from the 18-hour drive and my skin was feeling all kinds of dull. Thankfully, Walmart
sent me a few of their newly released beauty products to create an at-home spa. This was truly the perfect opportunity to not only test out some on-trend, high quality, and affordable new beauty products but also enjoy some much-needed pampering and relaxation. Creating an at-home spa environment is so quick and easy, and with a few great products, I felt better than I did before I left! Keep reading to see how I put this afternoon at-home spa together!
Before beginning my spa day, I picked up some beautiful and affordable flowers at Walmart for the foot soak I was going to be doing. I simply filled a large metal tub with warm water and cut the stems of some flowers so that they floated on top. In reality, the flowers don’t offer any physical benefits but I’m a firm believer when something looks beautiful it makes you happier, and it’s exactly the effect the floating flowers had on me. After the flowers were placed in the water, I slipped into something super comfortable dropped a Bodycology Cherry Blossom Bath Fizzie ($4.97), enriched with Vitamin E into the water, grabbed a magazine and began my relaxing foot soak.
I always like to lay out the products I’m using so that everything is super accessible to me. I also love the look of the Bodycology cherry blossom bath fizzies in a ceramic jar so I could display them in our bathroom after my spa day
A magazine and a relaxing foot soak are just what the doctor ordered! On top of the bath fizzies, try adding a few drops of your favourite essential oil or Epsom salts to your soak for extra cleansing and relaxation.
Whenever I have an at-home spa day I like to choose a mask that I can leave on while I’m soaking my feet and flipping through a magazine. I begin with a clean face and because my skin was feeling extremely clogged from being in a car for 18 hours I decided to opt for the L’Oréal Pure Clay Exfoliating and Refining Cleanser ($9.97). With ingredients like kaolin, montmorillonite Moroccan clays and red algae extract, this clay-to-mousse cleanser is ideal for purifying my skin of dirt, oil and pollution.

After cleansing my face, I chose one mask to use on this particular day which was the L’Oréal Pure Clay comforting and unifying mask ($12.97). I decided to stick with the clay mask, as I mentioned, my skin was feeling congested and clay masks tend to rid my skin of any pollutants and dirt that has built up. I love this mask because it doesn’t make my skin feel dry or irritated but rather leaves my skin super soft and clean.

The second mask, the Garnier Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask ($3.28 each), is one that I typically use before going out for an event and not during an at-home spa day. I’ve found the Garnier sheet masks to be the perfect skin plumping masks and I always get the best makeup application after I use them.
{I just think these bath fizzies look so pretty on display in a ceramic jar.}
Finally, my most favourite mask! I’m sure it looks a little silly but I promise you that this Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask ($45.97) is amazing! I’ve actually been using it for the past 2 weeks, once a day for 10 minutes each and I have found such a huge difference in the texture of my skin. If you’re suffering from mild to moderate acne, I’d highly suggest giving this mask a try.
