    Bota Bota: Old Montreal’s Hidden Spa

    If you live in Montreal or have visited our fine city before, you may have enjoyed a walk along the pier on De La Commune Street in Old Montreal, one of my favourite spots in the city. Looking at the pier, you’ll see lots of boats but you may not have noticed that one of those boats is actually a spa – and a fabulous one at that!

    Last week, I had a wonderfully luxurious massage at Spa Bota Bota and I just had to share the experience with you. First, I stored all my things in their high security, remote access lockers and put on my robe. You can enjoy the baths outside no matter the weather and prep for your ultra-relaxing treatment. Did I mention it’s on a boat?! That actually makes it much cooler for me

    I had a 60-minute Swedish massage and I was so sad when it was over. My massage therapist also focused on my problem areas, as I requested and used this amazing cream that deeply penetrated my skin and relieved the soreness in my shoulders.

    After my luxurious massage, I enjoyed a delicious cup of tea in the relaxation room and enjoyed the beauty of the eater right outside the window. It was so serene and amazing. If you’re looking for a great spa to relax and spoil yourself, this is it. Planning a trip to Montreal? Don’t miss Bota Bota! Check out their video below if you’d like to get more info on the spa or visit them online.

    The Holistic 24 Karat Gold Facial

    When this info made its way to my inbox, it immediately grabbed my attention. You didn’t misread that title. Today’s blog post is about a luxurious facial offered only at the Dr. Hauschka Spa in Montreal and yes, that’s 24K gold.

    Using cosmetic-grade gold leaves, Enaam Takla, co-owner of the Dr.Hauschka Spa in Montreal, has developed the Holistic 24 Karat Gold Facial. (This procedure brings new meaning to the word luxury.) It was developed to help diminish skin imperfections, rejuvenate the skin and minimize blemishes, wrinkles and fine lines. So the treatment really does target a little bit of everything.

    Gold being good for the complexion may seem like news to you but it’s actually an age-old secret. Cleopatra was said to sleep with a gold mask every night and, as we all know, her glowing complexion and flawless face is one that has attracted attention from all over the world throughout the centuries.

    The two-hour treatment offered at the Dr. Hauschka Spa in Montreal ($270 per treatment) stimulates the lymphatic system which makes the skin receptive to the benefits of the gold leaves which are spread and pressed onto the skin’s surface. The gold deeply penetrates the skin to release negative ions and get rid of free radicals (the enemy!).  The skin looks and feels more radiant after this holistic treatment.

    What do you think? Would you be willing to try out this exotic facial treatment?

    Must-Have Concealer Stick from Clé de Peau Beauté

    I love the affordable and accessible makeup out there but once in a while, a cosmetic indulgence is allowed. My new fave luxe product? This Concealer Stick from Clé de Peau Beauté. Though the stick retails for $85, I truly believe it’s worth it.

    First of all, I’ve had the concealer stick for months and have only used it for seriously bad pimples that seem to haunt me day and night! Those nasty ones are hard to conceal. I figured I’d give this pricey stick the ultimate test by putting it up against a fierce pre-menstrual zit (too much info?). Well much to my surprise, in one dab, the concealer did the trick and I’ve been swearing by it ever since.

    This isn’t a product you rub all over your face every single day so even though it’s pricey, it seems to me like it’ll last for years and years. I use it sparingly and it’s a total life saver. It really hides well and more importantly, it holds all day long. The reason I think it holds so well is because it isn’t greasy or wet. It’s a very dry stick. Moist products will eventually seep into the skin and wear away but this one doesn’t.

    The makeup remains as is unless you smudge it yourself. I recommend it for anyone but it’s great for oily skins. If you have oily skin, you know how hard it can be to find makeup that can withstand the excess sebum leaking from your pores. This concealer stick won’t absorb the oil on your skin so it remains in tact no matter what.

    If you’re interested in this life-saving concealer from Clé de Peau Beauté, you can find it at Ogilvy and Holt Renfrew. For more information, visit their website.
