Ole Henriksen Power Peel Professional Spa Grade Kit: The Power of Three

After trying and loving Ole Henriksen’s Lemon Strip Flash Peel in April, I moved on to bigger and somehow even better things – the Power Peel.

Bliss Micro Magic Spa-Powered Microdermabrasion Treatment

Bliss Micro Magic Spa-Powered Microdermabrasion Treatment

I can’t even tell you how many people have bought a Clarisonic because of my raving about it. I used to use it everyday after my workouts at Barry’s Bootcamp and there was almost no day when at least one person didn’t ask me about it.

Dry Brushing: Why You Should Be Doing It

When I was in Thailand I had my first experiences with dry brushing at a spa. I was told it would help not only exfoliate, but stimulate circulation. Makes sense! That’s why I use “rough” scrubs on my body. In speaking with my therapist, however, she also said it was one of the most effective ways to fight cellulite.
