You know how it is, when you’re having one of those days. C’mon now, we’ve all had them. I know I do on a weekly basis sometimes and the whole word just gets to be a bit too bloody much – you want nothing more than to just shut the door, put the kettle on and just be for a moment!
Lately I’ve been making a conscious effort to have more mini ‘me’ moments in an effort to combat the stresses and strains that come with the working week and life in general. This is why I love Sunday nights. They’ve officially become my pamper nights, just an hour or so but it’s made a huge difference as to which side I get out of the bed come Monday morning!
The star of my Sunday night is Espa’s Foam Bath. Bergamot, jasmine and a hint of cedarwood lifts my mood to dizzying heights and brings me back down as gentle as a feather with a smile on my face. With a tub full of suds and a fragrance that quite literally fills the whole top floor of the house, I grab myself a cold glass of water, a book and put on some very chilled out spa music. (Serenity is my favorite album for this kind of ambiance!)
The foam bath suds up like it's nobodies business! Around two cap fulls of bath soak and I'm up to my neck in luxuriously moisturizing foam. The bath foam cleanses your skin deeply, leaving a light fragrance in its wake - perfect as a pre-bed bath as it's just so soothing and relaxing.
The bath soak is a soap free formula making it perfect for even sensitive skin. It gentle and effectively cleanses the skin without stripping skin of its own vital moisture. My skin always feel so smooth and soft when I reluctantly get out of the bath, with a light fragrance left behind from the essential oils in the soak.
I have the full sized 300ml bath soak which retails for £18. I know, it’s a little pricier than good ol Matey (who remembers that?) but you can’t put a price on a relaxed and happy you. I’ve had a nosey at some of the other scented bath soaks on offer and am loving the sound of the lemon and tonka bean soak! I had a tonka bean candle once and it was amazing!
Espa has really brought the spa home to me lately, let’s face it most of us don’t have the time or money to go to an actual spa every week (though how amazing would that be?) so we must do what we can to bring the spa to us!

Until next time,
