Mindfulness through pampering yourself

I’m still recovering from loss, and as I write this I’m fully aware that this act of pampering myself may come off as way too frivolous, but it actually helps me to be mindful. To ruminate less, and do something that makes me feel good. At least for a while before retiring for the day.

Today I choose to share what my pampering routine was, and the products I chose to use. They have been sitting in a drawer waiting to see the light. It was today that I was able to take the time as a way to heal, to feel special if only for a moment. But life is that; moments.

Clarisonic  SRP: $199

It cleanses, massages and helps not only clean your pores deeply, but it also helps apply cream with a massage tool. Skin feels soft, clear and looks radiant after use.

Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex by Estēe Lauder SRP: $62

Helps hydrate eye area and brightens dark circles. This, I used at the end of my pampering session. Felt soft and light.

7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-off formula SRP: $22

This exfoliated my face with the help of Clarisonic very softly and was nonabrasive. Left my skin clean and soft.

Pureness by Shiseido SRP: $33

This is a mattifying, oil-free moisturizing light lotion. I used Clarisonic again but with the massage feature. This was truly relaxing, just like getting a facial at a salon.

Clean Air Parfum SRP: $75

Lastly, I used this Clean perfume which I’ve been using for years now. The selection is ample but always clean as the name brand suggests, and crisp. It’s refreshing!
