Lush’s T’eo Deodorant Review

I have been trying to move to a natural deodorant for many months. I’ve tried a few products but haven’t fallen in love with any, yet. My main problem with them has been in their lack of ability to keep me dry for a prolonged period of time. So, while I was at the Lush Spa in NYC last week, I bought the T’eo deodorant. I had four products to choose from, two bars and two powders. I find bars to be easier to work with, so I opted to try one of those first. I picked T’eo over Aromaco solely based on their scents. While nothing wrong with the scent of Aromaco, I really liked the soft citrus-y smell of the juniper berry, tea tree and lemongrass essential oils in T’eo. While not overpowering, it really spoke to my senses. It was also a prettier packaging.  Continue reading “Lush’s T’eo Deodorant Review”

I went to the Lush Spa in NYC this weekend, again. And it’s not a fluke, this place is amazing and my friend who tried it for the first time, thought so too. I had the Validation treatment (facial), but its not your ordinary facial.

The antidote to mass-market facials and cosmetic corrections, Validation is a non-invasive face treatment that instills inner confidence. This treatment taps into the subconscious to make you feel truly beautiful from the inside out.

One of the fun parts of this facial is that you get to go downstairs to the store with your Esthetician and pick out an array of products to be used during your facial.  Continue reading “Daily Recommendation: Lush’s Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser”

January 3: Lush Spa NYC

Today’s recommendation is all about the Lush spa in NYC (Lexington Avenue). My friend and I went in celebration of our birthdays and it was so much fun! I had “The Spell” treatment – which is described on their website as “a magical foot treatment to vanquish your worried soul. Do you want to move forward? The Spell is probably the first step. An enchanting take on the traditional foot treatment, The Spell treats the whole body through the feet with a foot soak, scrub and massage.”

My Current Favorite Face Masks

I love face masks, they are life’s little delights. Whenever I need a little pick me up (about three times a week), I put on a face mask and instantly feel better and so does my face. I wanted to share my two current favorite go-to products.

Caolion’s Pore – Original Pack

Caolion is a Korean brand. I think Koreans have one of the most beautiful skins and have recently begun incorporating a few Korean products into my skin care routine. This clay mask was one of the first items I added after discovering it on Michelle Phan’s YouTube video
