    Clarisonic: The Only Facial I Will Ever Enjoy

    As startling as this may seem coming from a beauty blogger, I am not a fan of salon facials. Don’t get me wrong, I can name a few good ones for those who truly enjoy the facial experience, but I personally can’t stand some stranger’s bare hands rubbing all over my face. It’s just very unsettling to me and I  prefer to give myself some much-needed pampering at home. Find out why I am now officially obsessed with the Clarisonic Mia 2 and why you will be, too.

    GLOSSYBOX – Could They Be Any Cuter?

    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.

    New V-Day Tradition: Love Yourself!

    Whether you have a special someone in your life or not, today is the perfect day of the year to indulge no one other than yourself. That’s right. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about loving someone else. Is there an “I love me” day on the calendar? Nope. Instead share the love with an at-home spa evening.

    Tonight, pamper yourself with some of the goodies I received from The Body Shop last week. Start with the Strawberry Body Polish ($16 — but on sale right now for only $10). A good scrub is a fabulous way to exfoliate your skin and make it feel fresh and brand new again. It’s a fundamental element to a fabulous spa treatment. Although the best part comes right after your relaxing bath.

    I am addicted to the Strawberry Puree Body Lotion ($12). It smells absolutely amazing. It’s so good, I’m tempted to lick it right off my arms! It’s a really soft and gentle lotion that deeply penetrates the skin for long-lasting hydration. I love lathering myself in it and it leaves my skin feeling relaxed, calm and smooth.

    If you’re a body butter fan (something The Body Shop is known for), I recommend going for the Strawberry Body Butter ($16). It really is buttery soft since it’s made with one of the ultimate natural hydrating ingredients: shea butter. It intensely nourishes the skin and the smell of strawberry is even more intense, but not overpowering. It leaves my skin with a sweet lingering smell of fresh strawberries. It’s great for a spa night.
    If you have plans for tonight, be sure to set aside one evening this week just for you. It’s important to take the time to relax and spoil yourself from time to time. Make a stop at The Body Shop on your way home tonight for some wallet-friendly products that are sure to make you feel like a pampered princess. Happy Love Day, everyone!

    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?
