Good morning guys! I don't know if you realised this, but today you actually have 25 instead of 24 hours in a day! Yeah, that's right, this night we Dutchies had to rewind our clock an hour backwards to switch to the Winter time. So why not used that hour to pamper yourself? Honestly, at the moment I'm so busy with preparing for my exams, I could really use some me-time to unwind! If you're interested in reading what I'm going to do today and you want some inspiration for yourself, keep reading!
HEALTHY BREAKFAST IN BED
The first thing I do to really pamper myself is to eat some healthy breakfast in bed. I never really take time to 'mindfully' enjoy my breakfast. Usually I'm eating something in the morning while starting with studying and that's that. So for me having a healthy breakfast in bed, filled with things I really enjoy, is definitely a great way to give myself that pampering feeling during our extra Winter time hour. This breakfast from Pluk, containing yoghurt, dates cake, banana bread and a smoothie was SO yummy by the way!
SKIN CARE: PEP START YOUR DAY
Last, but not least: skin care! What better way to pamper yourself than by giving your skin an extra treat. Clinique recently launched their Pep Start Your Day launch, containing 4 products that will definitely give you that boost every morning. This is how I like to use these products:
Clinique Pep-Start 2-1 Exfoliating Cleanser
I like to use the Clinique Pep-Start 2-1 Exfoliating Cleanser in the morning and at night to remove my make-up while giving my skin that extra oomphf. I love exfoliating my skin, because it leaves it feeling soft and smooth (which is also perfect for applying make-up later on). A 'real' scrub can be a bit too embrassive for my skin sometimes, so I prefer sticking to an exfoliating cleanser.
Clinique Pep-Start Quick Cleansing Wipes
Clinique Pep-Start Quick Cleansing Wipes: 50 towelettes that are perfect to refresh your face during the day or to remove all your make-up before going to bed. And it's bright pink (cute packaging alert!). I love having some nice cleansing wipes laying around, because sometimes I'm just too tired to do my whole skin care routine, but I do want to sleep with a fresh face. These wipes are allergy tested and 100% fragrance free, so they're perfect for senstive skin as well!
CLINIQUE Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer
After cleansing your skin, it's very important to add a bit of extra moisture back into it. This Clinique Pep-Start Hydroblur Moisturizer really feels like it's adding moisture and a protective layer to my skin. It has a very interesting texture: it almost feels like I'm applying a very moisturizing primer to my skin. This Hydroblur Moisturizer is perfect to use before applying your base make-up, because it makes your bare skin feel like a hydrated blanc canvas! It smells very nice too by the way (without having any perfume in it as well).
CLINIQUE Pep-Start Eye Cream
Last, but not least is probably my favorite product of this range: the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream.It comes in a bright orange tube, with a really interesting applicator. This eye cream is a 3-second eye fix. It hydrates, brightens and perks you up. Personally, I was sceptical about this cream at first, but I got to say, I love it! The applicator feels really nice on your skin and makes applying the eye cream underneath your eyes really easy!
So yeah, hope you liked reading this blogpost and you'll enjoy an extra hour to pamper yourself today. Let me know what you're going to do in the comments below!
