September is a difficult month for all of us. The weather takes a turn for the worst, the summer holidays are suddenly an ancient memory and it’s back to business as usual. So, to help you power through the tough season ahead, I’ve been on the hunt for the best beauty products to help you to relax.

From flickering candles to relaxing bath salts and restorative body oils, here are the beauty products you need to relax after a hectic September. As always, you can win them all by entering below:

1. Bahoma - Relaxing Bath Salts

I think we can all agree that nothing will help you to relax quite like a steaming hot bath. If you really want the experience to be extra indulgent, though, you can’t beat adding in some natural bath salts.

Some of my favourite? Bahoma’s Relaxing Bath Salts in the Desire scent. They boast a sweet vanilla fragrance that blends perfectly with their warm amber undertones. Better yet, the salt crystals used are natural and mined in European mountains, so they’re full of minerals and nutrients that keep your skin feeling smooth, soft and supple.

I love using bath salts when I bathe. As they dissolve, they create a soothing sense of peace and serenity.

Simply fill up your bath and, while the water is still running, add as many salts as you like (I usually go for a handful), then let your body and senses be carried away by the relaxing scent.

2. Molton Brown – Bath And Shower Gel

If you’re not a fan of bath salts (though don’t dismiss them until you try them!), using a bath and shower gel is the next best thing. Molton Brown, of course, are the obvious choice in this case!

If you’re looking to try a new Molton Brown bath and shower gel, then Jasmine & Sun Rose is a great choice!

A delicate and feminine scent, Jasmine & Sun Rose isn’t overpowering. In fact, it has just the right amount of fruity and floral fragrances to create a soothing atmosphere.

It blends delicate notes of jasmine with raspberry and peach. Simply pour it into your bath while the water is still running, allowing fragrant bubbles to form. Oh, and the scent isn't the only reason to love this shower gel! It’s also vegan, paraben-free, gluten-free and cruelty-free. Plus, Molton Brown as a brand have received the royal seal of approval! What’s not to love?

3. Yankee Candle – Alfresco Afternoon Helps You To Relax

While I realise that lighting candles when bathing takes pampering to the extreme, sometimes you deserve to treat yourself a little!

Yankee Candle will always be among my favourite candle brands and I’ve recently become obsessed with their Alfresco Afternoon scent.

This candle captures the refreshing autumn breeze, while also welcoming in the winter with a light, zesty orange fragrance.

Simply place it on a heatproof surface while you bathe, light the candle, then enjoy the moment.

4. Vitamasques – Evening Goggle Eye Mask

When I was hunting for all of these products, I was desperately trying to figure out what would help you to relax even more. Then it hit me! A soothing eye mask.

While I’ve tried a lot of eye masks before, I’ve lately been using Vitamasques’s Evening Goggles Eye Mask. It not only repairs the delicate area around your eyes (a must this time of year!), but it also helps to smooth out fine lines.

As far as I’m concerned, an eye mask is exactly what you need to relax. The cool sensation as you apply it soothes your mind, while also repairing your skin.

Simply apply it onto clean, dry skin before you get into the bath, then leave it on for 15 minutes while you soak. You can then peel it off and massage the remaining serum into your skin.

5. ESPA – Restorative Body Oil

When you’re ready to step out of your bath, complete the pampering experience with ESPA’s Restorative Body Oil.

While the list of incredible ESPA body oils goes on and on (have you tried their soothing body oil? Or their energising one?), you’ll find that their Restorative Body Oil is the perfect fit for this busy time of year! Blending sweet orange, rose geranium and lavender, it helps to calm your senses and ease anxiety. Plus, the palmarosa and sweet almond oil nourish your skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.

ESPA’s body oils are a saving grace during stressful times. Infused with essential oils, they help me to find a renewed sense of calm.

After your bath, simply massage this oil into your skin using firm, upward movements towards the heart. Trust me, you’re going to feel so at peace!

And those are all of my favourite products to help you to relax this autumn! Remember Glossies, you can win them all by entering the competition at the top of this page.
