Finding ways to keep Booey occupied during the holidays isn’t always easy, especially when the weather isn’t exactly great. There are only so many movies to watch and we are a bit tired of our shopping center. While we were in Truro a few weeks ago, we walked past quite a few spas/salons. I said to Booey how nice it would be for us to have a spa day, it’s a shame that it is so expensive to do so. Her reply was “why don’t we do one at home”.  The girl had a good idea!

Buying products for your Home Spa Day

Having a spa day at home is really easy and it doesn’t have to cost much. Most of the products we bought only cost a couple of pounds.

Face masks are available in many shops and on Amazon. There are ones for every skin type. Booey and I chose a moisturizing chocolate mask that we found in Primark. They were only 80p each! We bought 2, but we only really needed one between us. Primark has a great beauty range at the moment and we got a few more things in there too.

Next, we bought a two-pack of white beauty hair bands, these cost £1.50. I will use mine for when I am cleansing and putting on makeup, I am going to get some good use out of them lol! We also bought a nail polish each, these were 90p!

In Wilko, we found a nice range of hair masks. We chose one that had argon oil in as this is really good for your hair. The hair masks were £1 each, we needed one each as Booey’s hair is really long.

When we got home, I had a look through all my beauty bits to see if there was anything else that we could use. I had a couple of Avon foot scrubs, Kamill hand cream, and Pura lip scrub and lip balm.

Setting up your spa area

Now we had everything we needed, we just had to sort out a little space to make our “spa”.

We put a few cushions on the sofa around where we wanted to sit so that we could get comfy. I put a large towel on the floor in front of us and we lit some candles. Booey found some relaxing spa-type music on YouTube to make the atmosphere complete.

Pampering yourself

The face masks were the first thing that we tried as we were both excited to use these. Once they were on (and cucumber slices were placed over our eyes), we sat back and chilled for 15 minutes. I was so chilled out I was lucky I didn’t fall asleep lol! The hair masks were next. We stayed in the bathroom whilst we did these as they only stayed on for 5 minutes. Once I had helped Booey finish hers it was time to wash mine out.

Next, we did a foot scrub. We used the bowl from the kitchen to do this. we half filled it with warm water and placed it by the towel we had already put out. Once done and our feet were dry, we used a foot moisturizer on our feet too.

Finally, we filed and painted each others nails. We stayed on the sofa to do this and used my laptop tray for a table. It was lovely having Booey do my nails, having someone else do them always is.

We also made a video of our spa day too for you.

 

 

So, as you can see it is really easy to have a spa day at home. You can add in other home treatments to suit you too. I think this is a great way of not only keeping tweens (and probably kids of other ages) occupied but a great way of spending quality time together too. Booey and I really enjoyed our day and we plan on doing this again at some point.

Do you think this is something you would like to do? What treatments would you pamper yourself with?

Stay safe everyone.
