I’ve mentioned my love for lazy Sundays quite a few times on this blog. And with the long Easter weekend coming up, we should all have plenty of weekend lounging (and mini eggs) ahead of us. In addition to pancakes in pyjamas and Netflix marathons, another thing I love to do on Sundays is to treat myself to a special beauty bit. For me Sunday beauty is all about indulgence. Using luxurious beauty treats that I might not dare to use every day. Coincidentally, I’ve also recently added three new beauty treats to my collection that all have the word Sunday in their name.
Skincare by Sunday Riley is something I had wanted to try for some time. But the steep prices had me dragging my feet. Until I got a tester of this little pot of magic, and I just had to take the plunge. Tidal is unlike any other moisturizer I’ve ever tried. First of all, much like the gorgeous packaging, the cream itself is actually blue. It has a curious gel like texture that just melts into the skin like water, while feeling lightweight and cooling. The cream is packed full of hydrating hyaluronic acid and papaya enzymes to smooth and exfoliate the skin.
A few weeks ago my skin was having a proper freak out, but it calmed down as soon as I brought Tidal back to my routine. It works wonders on sensitive skin and is incredibly hydrating. In fact, it’s so hydrating that my face still feels soft, plump and hydrated when I wake up the next morning. The papaya enzymes are also brilliant for girls like me, who are just a tad too lazy to remember regular exfoliating. The only thing that could make this cream even better is if the scent was something a bit more luxe than cucumber. While Sunday Riley skincare may be a bit too pricey for me to use on a regular basis, I do love busting it out as a special Sunday beauty treat every now and then.
This one is not something I use every Sunday, but rather every now and then. (Usually after I’ve gone to an event that required a bit more hairstyling than just dry shampoo). It’s a clarifying deep cleansing shampoo that gets rid of any product residue, hard water minerals or pollutants in your hair.
I was a bit nervous to try it since it says you’re not supposed to use it on coloured hair. But as long as you don’t use it too often, it seems to work fine for colour-treated hair as well. It leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean, and has a lovely fresh scent that makes me think of eucalyptus. It can be a bit drying, but if you’re a lazy hair washer, it gets rid of all the oil and dry shampoo build-up. Leaving you with a fresh clean slate to start a new week.
Maison Margiela Replica Lazy Sunday Morning
I just wrote a full post on this fragrance last month, so I won’t go on about it for long. But since Sunday is in the name, I just couldn’t do a Sunday beauty post without including it. It’s the loveliest fresh floral scent with warm musky notes, that lingers on your skin for hours. Like the name would suggest, the scent is meant to make you think of lazy Sunday mornings, fresh white sheets and soft skin. That moment when you wake up to the first rays of sun feeling as snug as a bug.
What’s your favourite Sunday beauty bit?
