Blogmas Day 2017 Day Thirteen - Pre-Party Beauty Prep

Wednesday 13th December 2017.

Tonight was all about some pre-Christmas party beauty prep, time to treat my skin and hair and give my hair a pop of colour. My hair is still naturally very dark but I have noticed lately that I have more and more greys coming through. Now I know that as we get older we are supposed to embrace the silver strands but I am so not ready to do that just yet!

I had a lovely long soak in a bubble filled bath where I applied a face mask to my skin. I used a Sephora sheet one that I bought back from the States with me, it was the Perfecting and Brightening Pearl one. It smelt lovely and left my skin soft and glowy, this one will be definitely be going on the Sephora shopping list next year.
At the moment my hair isn't in the best condition due to the colour effect that I had put in earlier this year so last night I gave it a deep conditioning treatment. I used the Charles Worthington Overnight Hair Healer to try and combat the dryness and give my locks some shine from root to tip. You are meant to leave this on overnight and wash off in the morning but I couldn't be done with getting up and washing and drying my hair at 6am so I applied it as soon as I got home from work and just left it on for a good couple of hours before rinsing off. I do love this product, it really does work, I just need to remember to use it more often.

My next task tonight was to add some colour to the faded bits of my hair and to cover those pesky greys. I used a Garnier Olia colour in shade number 4.62 which is called Forever Garnet. I am pleased with the way the colour has turned out, its really true to the image shown on the box and it smelt nice too unlike some of the home colours I have used in the past. The only real downside is that the bathroom looked like a murder scene after I rinsed my hair though, honestly it took a good 20 mins to clean up all the mess!!
Day 13 of my advent calendar gave me a Shay and Blue London perfume spray in the scent Blood Orange. Now I knew that this was included in the calendar so I was really excited to find it this morning. I have been wanting to try this brand for ages and now I have definitely want to try more of the range. This smells delicious and I cant wait to wear it, move over Jo Malone you have a challenger!
Hope your week is going well, don't forget to pop back tomorrow for another post.

Love and festive hugs, Jane xx
