One of my goals on the "34 in 2013" list (which I am hopelessly behind on) is to take better care of my skin. And it was one of the things I added as kind of an easy out. I mean, at the end of the year, surely I'd be able to check that one off because I wash my face almost every night (I know, I know - I'm horrible but you've soooo done it; admit it) and I moisturize at night and in the morning.
So I've been trying to do a better job. I've been washing my face every night -- with the good stuff no less, not just wipes -- and I've been better about using the nighttime cream and the morning moisturizer with SPF. And I've been far better about washing my makeup brushes; a task that's gone sorely underminded in my life, I must confess.
A few weeks ago, the last event I advised for the youth group was a mini spa night at Fresh at The Grove, one of my favorite LA spots. I wasn't intending to get a makeover or anything but they invited me to do so and I did have a date later that night, so what the hell...
Right now, you're wondering why you didn't hear about this date until now. That is because ten minutes into it, he looked right at my chest and uttered "god you have nice tits." I politely changed the subject, ordered a second drink to make sure I at least spent more of his hard-earned bread before telling him I had an early meeting and ducking out. It hardly merits a whole blog post because he's basically the slimiest slimeball in all of slimeland.
So clearly the highlight of that evening was my spa night with the girls. And when I woke up the next day, my skin felt marvelous. So muh so that when I returned to The Grove that evening for a dinner meeting, I went early to swing by Fresh and buy me some face mask magic.
And thus, I felt like I should share it with you, dear readers. Too often I am pitched products or events and subsequently brag to you about them and let's be honest - I'm being honest but these are not products I find organically. So it's nice when something excites me enough that I can bring it to you of my own volition.
Ok, up front I must tell you, this is not cheap shit. Sold at 3.4 ounces for $88 or 1.6 ounces for $55, it is not a bargain, I know. I mean, I only splurged for the smaller one myself. But I'm still using it and still in love with it. I'm using it 2-3 times a week as suggested, and even spent one night sleeping with it on, as the nice lady at Fresh hinted to me I could do. I won't even bore you with the italicized description of what it contains and what it does from the website - I don't even care. But it smells like tea, which I'm a whore for, and it makes my skin feel silky fresh, so I'm a happy girl.
Does anyone else use this stuff? Or something else from Fresh you love? Share in the comments below. I'm a new fan. It may be something I have to save for and treat myself to on special ocassions, but I wanna know what to keep an eye out for.
My goodness, they have something called a brown sugar body polish that - I don't know about you, but - I think sounds like HEAVEN and I want to know if I'm right!
