Has the economy caused your relaxation and pampering to take a backseat? Beauty and style guru Bobbie Thomas gives tips on how to create a 'spa-tacular' sanctuary right in your home by using items that are inexpensive or found at your local drugstore. From lightly scented candles to homemade foot scrub, make an appointment to indulge your senses and to pamper yourself without putting a hole in your wallet.
I asked Bobbie to share her top five at-home pampering product recommendations, and she gladly dished the deets (just for Spoiled Pretty readers!):
Essence of Beauty Soy Lotion Candles ($9.99)
A luxe little secret! These soy lotion candles not only smell delish, but actually melt down to offer you a warm body indulgence. Burn for approximately 30 mins, and the special formulation can be used as a massage oil or body crème!
Venus Spa Breeze Razor ($11.99)
Transform your shaving routine into a treat! The Venus Spa Breeze is another scent-sational favorite of mine because it features flexible shave gel bars infused with the clean, fresh scent of white tea. With no shaving cream or soap needed, just add water to indulge your senses! You (and your legs) will feel beautiful and refreshed with a close, smooth shave, and lovely scent that lingers.
Aegean Apparel's Shower Wraps ($38.99)
My must-have in the summer (and fall!) No need to overheat in a heavy robe. Blow-dry your hair or lounge by the pool in these one-size-fits-all towels-to-go.
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Overnight Repair Serum ($8.99)
Give bed head a whole new meaning! You can mend your mane without leaving residue on your pillow. Literally get your beauty sleep and wake up to silky smooth tresses.
White Pearl Teeth Whitening Pen ($19.95)
Another nighttime tool I love! So easy, brush on and smile for 30 seconds before bed. Then let the solution work its magic while you dream and brighten your smile before the break of dawn.
