Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore: Building a Barrier

SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2: Building a Barrier

I’ve been using SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic and Phyto+ serums for a while now, so when offered the opportunity to try their newly-launched Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 during a facial at Hiatus Spa in Texas, I was looking forward to seeing how the cream would boost the effects I’d been experiencing.

Now’s The Time To Get A Facial

I got the Lierac Magnificence Age Defense Facial at PHYTO Universe ($200 for 55 minutes) yesterday and I feel like a new person!

Ling Energy Lift Facial: Just like Heaven

I love spas. I will travel to the ends of the earth for a good spa, so imagine how excited I was to find one of the best in my backyard!

ESPA: The Great Escape

This may sound crazy, but in Asia, most women visit the spa daily. The amenities are so grand and luxurious! I’ve rarely found comparable services or facilities in the US, which makes the discovery of ESPA all the more thrilling.

Renee Rouleau Bio Brasion: Turning Back the Clock

In the first few weeks of 2014, I have already racked up over 25K frequent flier miles, traveling throughout two continents and six cities. As fun as it’s been, my skin quickly began to feel like dry, crackling paper, sending me running straight to my longtime esthetician, Renee Rouleau.
