Halloween Masquerade Ball #SpaWeekGossip Recap

29 Oct

Even though due to Twitter troubles we weren’t able to mask ourselves, we still had a blast unmasking our favorite beauty masks & recipes. In fact, there were so many great DIY recipes – we’re devoting a separate blog post to them!

At the spa or at home, peel away, hardening, mud, seaweed, mint, face, hands, feet we crave them all. AND we’d rather mask and massage separately at the spa. But, a few of us didn’t know masking was an important part of skin care. It helps maintain hydration and keeps pesky lines at bay.

TRICK or TREAT: When masking at home, we get our jollies shocking our loved ones with our spa masks! Hmmm, maybe a new Halloween costume is in order?

Seriously we want these results from our masks. . . no tricks please:

lighter and brighter skin
long term anti aging
smaller pores
smooth, soft skin
oil reduction
blackhead removal

We’d like to DIY BUT, when we don’t have the time to clean the kitchen, we choose these treats:

@therapearl Eye Mask
Erno Lazlo Sea Mud mask
@bosciaskincare black mask
@katesomerville Papaya mask
Philosophy Mint mask
Shiseido Sheet Mask
@LeafandRusher clay mask
@talikacosmetics Sleeping Beauty mask
@sphatika use pearl, crystal & gold
@kerstinflorian moor mud body wrap
@olehenrickson African Red Tea mask for firming face
Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin mask

For homemade treats see our Masquerade post (& feel free to add your homemade beauty brews in the comments)

When to mask? @spaweek recs. at least two times a week before bed – But @artofthespa does it more Find time to mask by using fast acting masks and doing it in the shower or right after you get out.

And who won the masks from @RedDoorSpa and @Repechage?  Congrats to @LLLipgloss and @Shira_Marie!  Treats for you!

Join us next Wednesday for a Spa & the Silver Screen – we’ll be talking relaxing with our favorite movies and spa treats to do during those home screenings.
