January for many is a time to reinvigorate themselves from the inside, out! This is the first year I’ve truly jumped on the ‘detoxing in January’ bandwagon (hey, I do have a wedding I need to start preparing for) and so I’ve been taking time to truly pamper myself & be the best person I can be.
It was perfect then, when Champneys got in touch and asked if I wanted to take part in their Detox in a Box Challenge; as well as trialling the products for a full week, I also had to eat clean and incorporate seaweed into my diet as it’s a superfood and also one of the main ingredients in the product range!
The whole range has the most beautiful, refreshing scent which really reminds me of a spa; it feels like a little touch of luxury when I use them the morning. I’ve been starting my day in the shower with the Champneys Detox Firming Shower Scrub, which really helps to wake up my body (and mind) – it’s a detoxifying scrub which helps to remove surface impurities leaving my skin feeling really clean and soft.
Once out of the shower I follow this with the Firming Body Butter. I’m normally quite lazy and always skip this step after washing but I’ve really been making an effort and it’s paying off. My skin feels nourished and smoother thanks to the sea minerals enriched in the butter. This cream has such a gorgeous, thick consistency, which also does wonders for my dry skin (eczema patches) that I suffer with at this time of year.
I really, really love the Hip & Thigh Firming Mask as it really feels like I’m undergoing a spa detox at home. Simply smooth this over your hips and thighs, leave on for 10-20 minutes and then wash off in the shower (also using the massager in the kit if you want)! This was designed to improve the look of cellulite around these problem areas to leave your skin feeling firmer and more toned so I’m going to keep up with this step with my fingers crossed!
I’ve also been trying to eat as clean as possible. I normally skip breakfast (I know, I’m terrible), but I’ve been making a conscious effort to make myself a healthy smoothie with lots of fruit (and a teaspoon of dried seaweed for a little superfood kick). I’ve also replaced fizzy drinks with green tea and I’ve been enjoying lots of sushi for lunch, which I love so much, it hardly feels like I’m eating well!
The Champneys Detox-in-a-Box is currently available for £19.50 (normal price is £30) at Champneys Spas!
