    Happy Customers

    The spa is small and the treatment is highly personalized, which I prefer to the big, busy "spa" type setting.

    As promised, this month's posts will be all about things I LOVE and there is no better way to begin than by sharing my most cherished skincare products! 

    As a Healthy Skin Enthusiast, my daily/weekly/monthly skin care regimen reads something like a novel (think 'War & Peace'). Therefore, consider this post an abridged version of said novel...

    Dermalogica's Precleanse - $35

    If you are not double cleansing, you are not living! Okay, that's a tad dramatic, but there is no other way to express my enthusiasm about this crucial step. Double cleansing is not just for the treatment room, it should make an appearance in everyone's skin care routine.

    This yummy dry oil cleanser attaches to all that yucky oil soluble dirt, debris, excess sebum, and makeup (even super stubborn waterproof mascara), and whisks it away into oblivion. Followed by a gentle water soluble cleanser paired with the Clarisonic and your pores will definitely thank you!

    Confession time: The thought of slathering oil on my previously acneic skin seemed blasphemous at first, but now I can't imagine life without Precleanse (I know, I know, still a tad dramatic). If you struggle with the texture, as I did, just keep in mind that oil attracts oil and go with it. I promise that double cleansing will become second nature in no time. 
    Think masques are all of the hardening clay variety? Think again, because this baby is luxuriously creamy! Chock full of antioxidants, peptides, and ultra hydrating ingredients Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque is my 'GO TO' before any special occasion, even if that special occasion is a movie marathon Monday with the hubs. My skin is instantly (10 minutes is pretty instant, right) plumped, replenished, and perfectly prepped for a decadent night out or an indulgent afternoon in. 
    p.s. This is my 'must have' product recommendation for Brides to Be as it offers serious GLOW power! 
    I love this little guy! A spot treatment that zaps breakouts, but is not overly drying, yes please and thank you. Even the healthiest skin experiences bumps (literally) in the road thanks to those vexatious hormones, exacerbated stress levels, or that juice cleanse that purged toxins every which way to Sunday. Yep, I never quite know when this little guy will come in handy which is I always have Overnight Clearing Gel on hand. 
    My daily dose of brightening! Remember those bumps in the road I mentioned, well once Overnight Clearing Gel has worked its magic, a not so lovely parting gift remains. Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), or 'why is this breakout still haunting me' are the little dark/pink (depending on skin tone) spots of where the skin was inflamed and rushed to protect itself with excess melanin.
    Pure Light is one of my favorite products because it contends with pesky PIH problems by providing brightening ingredients and sun protection to prevent further melanin production all wrapped up in an uber light weight moisturizer. 
    Hmmmm, I don't think one post on skin care products is going to cover on the lookout for another post on my personal favorites!
