There has never been a better time to stop, take a beat, and think about better ways to care for yourself and your loved ones. Some of us are back in lockdown or quarantine, some of us facing the prospect of future lockdowns and all of us feeling worried about the future.
2020 has been a looooong year - and we're ALL feeling it.
So it's time to remember the good things about being in at home, that glorious refuge where we can feel safe and cosy. To undo some of the pain and damage of this year. To replace stress with joy. To become true masters of self care and personal indulgence because (to steal a phrase) you really are worth it.
In short, it's time to P-A-M-P-E-R.
We're passionate about this here at Cloud Nine Global, and so we've created a new pack called The Pamper that has everything you need for an indulgent night in (or Sunday afternoon, or Tuesday morning, or whenever suits;) We've thought carefully about how to create the ultimate simple pampering experience and have put together a truly divine (and environmentally friendly) collection of products made by some amazing Australian companies.
This pack is specifically designed to be the one-stop solution to all your nurturing needs. Use it for a cosy night in, or send one (beautifully gift-wrapped) to a friend who needs a boost during this difficult time.
There are so many ways you can use this pack. One of our favourites is to start the pampering process with a lovely hot bath or steamy shower to soothe your muscles and open your pores. Then smear on the totally amazing Big Night In Investment Mask from our friends at InFlight Magic. We've long been fans of their clever and beautifully made hydration masks for travelling and jetlag, but we're just as enamoured with their lush products for staying in, like this one that is created on a base of certified organic aloe and packed with quality active ingredients.
Once you've washed the mask off, give your skin a thorough spritzing with the Skin Brightening Essential Oil Mist by Allira Organics. It's made with tuberose and rosewater and it's totally addictive - and will leave your skin looking and feeling soft, supple and dewy.
Next, make yourself a lip-smackingly, toe-twinklingly delicious cup of tea from the masters of the craft Tea Tonic. For a long time now, the Cloud Nine Global team have been passionate devotees of this incredible local company. They make their teas from totally organic ingredients and pack them in totally recyclable materials, so you can enjoy your cuppa with a light heart knowing the sustainability box has been ticked. But far more importantly, their teas are DELICIOUS. Light, fresh but full of so much flavour. You need to try it to understand and then you'll never look back.
And a cup of tea is never so good as it is when it comes with a sweet treat on the side. When you buy The Pamper, you get to choose a yummy chocolate delight from four options - either Triple Fudge or Gluten Free Fudge cookies from Byron Bay Cookies, or Milk or Dark Chocolate Bar from Chocolatier. All made in Australia, so you're supporting local. Even better, they are all good sized portions (much more than a mere mouthful) so you can really stretch out your moment of indulgence.
While you're enjoying your tea and treat, attend to any lingering aches or pains (we all have them!) with our beautiful little reusable hot/cold pack. We LOVE this little beauty, and at the moment we're constantly using it warm. Just 10-15 seconds in the microwave is enough to warm it up, and it will stay toasty for up to 30 minutes. Then pop it on your shoulders or neck or tummy or wherever you need a bit of cosy comfort.
By now you should be super relaxed and ready for bed. Once you've slipped under the sheets, slide on our signature Cloud Nine Global black silk eye mask for a truly sweet night's sleep. This has been one of our most popular products since we launched and for very good reason. It's plump and plush and feels oh-so luxurious. The perfect way to round off a night of pampering and self care.
