Self Care: Pamper Routine

Hello Everyone!


*Disclaimer: This post contains products sponsored by Derma E. Thank you Derma E for sending over products for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own

Today I'm sharing my Self Care Pamper Routine, Quarantine Edition. Lately I've been sticking to showers, but I wanted to take a nice relaxing warm bath and full skincare routine.


To take a relaxing bath, I have to have a candle or candles burning. This time I also sprayed some of the mist into the air. The Aromatherapy Line at Bath & Body Works has a variety of scents. For today's scent I chose Love Rose & Vanilla. This scent is a perfect blend of rose and vanilla without being too floral. I added Cuccio Yogahhh Detox Bath to also help me relax.


No wine this time, but I did drink ice cold water. When I'm taking a warm bath I keep myself hydrated.


For the past week I've been having pain throughout my arm and knee. Come to find out that the pain I've been experiencing came from an old injury from when I had a bad fall in my room at college 10 years ago. I had pain from that fall off and on over the years, but this past week it got pretty bad. I'm just glad I'm able to move my arm again. My regular doctor was unavailable, so I had to verbally talk to the doctor on call due to social distancing. If you remember during the Summer of 2017 I mentioned that I had a back ache that left me bedridden for almost 3 weeks. This is that same type of issue, so warm baths/heat sources tend to help with managing the pain and discomfort.


After my bath I used my favorite Sleep Care Items from Bath & Body Works, Sleep Lavender + Vanilla. I reviewed these products in 2018. Lavender is supposed to be calming so lately I've been using these products throughout day, not just at night.  The Sleep Spray can be usee on your pillowcase, but the spray can also be used as a body mist. I use the spray more as a body mist.


I try to use unscented products to moisturize my elbows. Derma E's Eczema Relief Cream is my go to product for the eczema on my elbows. It's unscented, and helps reduce irritation. I don't have eczema too badly but, my eczema issues cause dryness and irritation.

Pamper Skincare Facial Routine feat. Derma E Skincare




After my bath I decided to do an at home facial routine. As always it's so important to cleanse your face before any skincare routine. 





I try do a face mask at least once at week. Can you really pamper yourself without a good face mask?! lol




I didn't want to over stimulate my face with this scrub since the Mask has an exfoliant, so I only used a small amount of this Purifying 2-In-1 Daily Detox Scrub. 



Up until a few years I didn't use toners that much, but now I try to use a toner twice a week, specifically this Essential Radiance Toner. 




I love how this Rose Quartz Face Roller glides across my face. I've used this roller with serums, but I like to use the roller with face oil. This Radiant Glow Face Oil truly lives up to its name, and it absorbs well into my skin without feeling greasy.




I've been working on my under eye area the past few weeks because I have dark circles. I know that I should get more sleep, but this eye Gel has been helping puffiness and keep under my eye hydrated.


Remember during this time, to pamper yourself. Self care is the best care :)

It's nice to pamper ourselves once in awhile. I like how you light candles all the time, Pilar. I love candles, but don't light them as often as I should. You have reminded me to do that. The at home facial routine sounds nice. We're always so busy taking care of everybody else, that sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves. And that is so important. It lifts our spirits too. Thanks Pilar.

I'm sorry to hear that you've been in pain Pilar. It's good that you were able to do a virtual visit in lieu of seeing your doctor. I hope you're feeling better. When I had the issue with my neck I took a lot of baths as well. I don't know if you use epsom salt but it really helps with muscle aches and pains.

Marie said...

And I'm sorry yo hear that you've been in pain. I hope you're feeling better!

Im sorry to hear you have been in pain. I would love to have a nice bath tub to relax in. Ours is old and shallow so I just take long showers. I need to work on some self care and pampering. It’s so easy to let yourself go when you have no where to go. I will take some time out this weekend for that.

It is a perfect time for us to pamper ourselves! I'm glad a warm bath helps with you pain. Scents can do wonders distracting our brains from pain too.

Pilar said...

Thanks Allie,and you're welcome! Lol I didn't have any wine this time, just water :) I started drinking water when I take baths to keep hydrated.

Pilar said...

Thanks Perla! Candles makes bath time so relaxing!

Pilar said...

Thanks Sheri! My knee is better, but I still have arm pain. I'm thankful the pain isn't as bad as a few weeks ago. I started using wax warmers more, but I still love candles. Baths and candles make a perfect pairing! You're right sometimes we can forget to take care ourselves. Self care is so important!

Pilar said...

Thanks Antonella!

Pilar said...

I agree

Pilar said...

Thanks Mica! Have a good week!

Pilar said...

I'm feeling better. I stil have arm pain, but my arm feels much better.

Pilar said...

Thanks Paola!

Pilar said...

Thanks Rowena! I'm glad I was able to do a virtual visit to the doctor on call. I haven't used epsom salt, but I think I'm going to try that next time in my bath water for aches and pains.

Pilar said...

Thanks Lisa. That's too bad about your tub. I have heard people mention that their tubes or to shallow or narrow to take a bath. Long showers are good too. Enjoy your self care this weekend!

Pilar said...

Thanks Marianela, and you're welcome! Have a good week!

Pilar said...

The warm bath does help with pain. I'm glad for that! Scents can definitely be a distraction from pain and scents can be so calming!

Pilar said...

Thanks Evi, and you're welcome!
