Treat Yourself To A Home Spa Day

Is your skin stressed from sun and heat?  Try one or more of these relaxing products to get your skin in shape and looking fab!

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque ($45.00 USD)  — With soothing botanical extracts of cucumber, papaya, chamomile pineapple, sugar maple, sugar cane, orange, lemon and bilberry; this ultra-gentle, non-stinging, anti-irritant gel masque is made for all skin types including even the most sensitive skin. Recommended for daily use as a hydrating and calming masque. May be used under the eye area to reduce puffiness. Use in the treatment room to soothe the skin, even after the most potentially irritating procedures including extractions, waxing, clinical facials, peels and electrolysis.

What I think:  This green gel is fun to use, and is easy, too.  Just apply, let sit for 10 minutes and wash off.  Afterwards my face is soft and clear.  Any redness is reduced.  This doesn’t  irritate my skin at all, so it can be used each day.  This is available at www.peterthomasroth.com and Sephora.

Lavanila Healthy Body Wash 2-in-1 Shower & Shave ($14.00 USD) – Packed with nourishing ingredients that promote healthy skin, this non-irritating time-saver soothes, cleans, and moisturizes. While traditional washes and shave creams are made with sulfates and other harsh detergents that can irritate sensitive skin, Lavanila’s all-natural, chemical-free formula is packed with a daily dose of anti-oxidants and vitamins that promote calm, healthy, super soft skin.

Key Ingredients include coconut oil, organic rose hip oil, organic aloe and calendula. The scents are Vanilla Passion Fruit, Vanilla Lavender, Pure Vanilla, Vanilla Grapefruit, and Vanilla Coconut.

What I think:  I tested the Vanilla Grapefruit wash and it was very effective as a shower gel, shaving gel and even as bubble bath. The scent is light and perfect for the summer.  Visit www.lavanila.com to learn more.

The Body Shop Body Butter Duos ($16.00 USD) features an innovative twin pot of fragranced Body Butters to moisturize skin from head to toe. One side moisturizes dry skin like your elbows and knees, and the other side caters to normal skin. They come in four delicious flavors: Vanilla, Macadamia, Acai and Sweet Pea.

What I think:  This is such a cool idea!  One side of the pot holds a thick cream that is almost like a balm and the other side holds a lighter cream.  Both are scented the same but are for different types of skin.  I like to use the thick cream on my feet and elbows and the lighter cream on arms and legs.  Visit www.thebodyshop-usa.com to purchase.

Nothing feels worse than sunburnt skin! Smooth on aloe vera and lather up with Cures by Avance Skin Repair Body Mist ($39.00 USD) to hydrate and soothe skin. This exceptional body mist penetrates to heal and relieve sunburned skin. Sea minerals and essential oils provide deep rehydration and restored tone as the skin is visibly repaired. Perfect during the warm summer months for a lightweight, moisturizing glow that will bring out your tan!

What I think: This spray is light and moisturizing and is perfect for relieving summer skin problems. I do have to say that it has a very strong herbal scent, a little too strong for me.  But if you love natural-smelling products, this might be perfect for you! You can purchase this at www.curesbyavance.com.

Want smooth and clear skin for the upcoming holidays? Start using one of these fab Peter Thomas Roth products now, and your skin will look more radiant in a couple of months! 

Peter Thomas Roth Clini-Matte™:  “This multi-tasking moisturizer works at the cellular level to eliminate excess oil, minimize the appearance of pores and control shine, all while protecting the skin from UVA/UVB rays with an SPF20.  Designed for normal, combination and oily skin types, this sheer lotion instantly delivers a smooth, long-lasting, matte complexion. With regular use, Clini-Matte™ also helps to regulate skin’s oil levels so the skin becomes more balanced.”

What I think: Fantastic! I love that this is basically three products in one — moisturizer, sunscreen and a primer. It instantly smooths out my skin by eliminating shine and also minimizes the appearance of my pores.  

Price: $48 available in September 2010 at www.peterthomasroth.com and Sephora

Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion AM Moisturizer SPF30: This oil-free and fragrance-free moisturizer uses a 1.5% time release retinol solution to gradually deliver the ingredient over an eight hour period as well as SPF30 to protect the skin from UVA/UVB rays.   This encourages the skin’s renewal process while minimizing irritation.  With regular use, Retinol Fusion AM Moisturizer SPF30 is clinically proven to deliver a 48% improvement in skin smoothness, 35% improvement in skin tone and 30% reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  The result is a complexion that is refreshed, restored and brighter. 

What I think: Immediately after the first use of this moisturizer, my skin looked clear and smooth. I had a little bit of irritation when I used it everyday, so I started applying it every other day to get use to it. I now apply it once a day and my skin looks fantastic! I have never used retinol for skin before and I really love the clarity that it has given my skin.

Price: $78 available in September 2010  at www.peterthomasroth.com and Sephora

Peter Thomas Roth Instant FIRMx: Temporarily tighten your skin and rewind the clock – instantly  with the new Instant FIRMx.  This revolutionary rinse-off formula means that the white residue is rinsed away, while active firming agents remain behind to instantly tighten, firm and smooth the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles and pores to look years younger all day long.  Instantly look younger while minimizing crow’s feet, under eye bags, nose-to-mouth lines, forehead creases, etc.

What I think: How cool is this product? So cool! This does what it says by instantly firming and smoothing the face. This is great for everyday, but especially good for special occasions or photos. I also think that the price is extremely reasonable for the quality and “wow” results this product gives!
