3 Products for a Mini Spa Session at Home!

Hi there, my darlings! S, if you heard me complaining on social media last week, it was a super hectic, super stressful week for me. What with Shark Week, a super busy schedule at work and a blog calendar that was all but bursting at the seams, there were more things to do than there were hours in the day! Needless to say, by the end of the week, I was absolutely pooped. So, I made it a point to take one day to take care of myself. Since Saturday, I passed out into a much longer nap than anticipated, I decided to take my break that night and treat myself to a much-needed mini spa session...right in the comfort of my home! And I did it with the help of 3 amazing products that I've been testing!


The Viabuff Body Exfoliator is non-sensitizing, non-irritating, cruelty-free, and dermatologist-tested. This product does not contain harsh abrasives.

The Viabuff Body Exfoliator is 5″ and comes in 4 different levels:

  • Level 1--Extra Gentle (Purple) : Ideal for Oily Skin, Acne, Psoriasis
  • Level 2--Mild (Green) : Ideal for Normal Skin, Eczema
  • Level 3--Moderate (Pink) : Ideal for Dry Skin, Ingrown Hairs, Keratosis Pilaris, Waxing
  • Level 4--Clinical (White) : Ideal for Very Dry Skin
Available for the Face in mini sizes.

I started my mini spa sesh in the shower and I'm a big fan of exfoliating products, both for the face and body. For an easy, no-mess, quick exfoliation in the shower, I love these Via Buff poufs! Winters can be rough on the skin and I like that there are different levels of exfoliation that you can use, depending on your skin health that day or week. I've been using the Mild and Moderate for my body and mini Extra Gentle for my neck and decolletage and I really like how my skin feels afterwards--smooth and soft, without being at all irritated!

MOISTURIZE WITH A GIRL'S GOTTA SPA! Energizing Citrus Body Lotion 

Lift your spirits, soften your skin. A Girl's Gotta Spa!® Energizing Citrus Body Lotion is a natural, light, sheer lotion which effortlessly absorbs into your skin to help restore your natural moisture balance. Antioxidant-rich olive oil, richly textured African shea butter and unprocessed natural cocoa butter, make it the best lotion for dry, itchy skin. This thinly textured lotion contains powerful essential oils to treat the skin and enlighten the senses. It is gentle and moisturizing providing soothing, hydrating relief and leaving your dry skin looking and feeling soft and healthy.

Oh I love this moisturizer! It's SO refreshing, wakes you right up even on your dullest, dreariest days! The moisturizer itself is very light and absorbs super-quickly so I would say it's great for normal to dry skin--if you have really dry skin, I think you would need a thicker formula. But for a girl like me, who likes to moisturize right before bed and who also tends to get hot very quickly at night, it's the perfect formula--hydrating without being too thick or uncomfortable!

($7 per individual sheet, $28 for a boxed set of 4)

Introducing When Glamour Base, a lightweight, bio-cellulose mask created with sheet made of coconuts. The natural sheet softly clings to the face like a second skin evenly covering the entire surface so that the key ingredients of the serum are effectively transferred to the skin. When Glamour Base facial mask sheet is infused with light, non-greasy, non-sticky serum formulated with hyaluronic acid and ginseng extracts to keep skin healthy; adenosine, collagen and peptides to help improve skin elasticity.

This easy to apply, simple to use face mask is ready for your skin at any given moment. Begin with clean and dry skin, then open the pouch and remove paper and plastic and place mask directly on face. Remove and discard after 30 minutes. No need to rinse. Massage remaining product into face and neck – resulting in radiant skin. Your skin is left feeling younger and smoother for wrinkle-free dreaming.

As much as I love masks and the relaxation of a spa session at home, the set-up and clean-up can be a pain in the ass. You know, what I mean--apply a mask, wait for it to dry, rinse it off, tone, moisturize...I just want to lay back and relax during these rare spa nights! With When, I can do just that! No set-up, no clean-up--just discard the mask when you're done and massage the residual product into your face.Easy-peasy! I can just lie back and enjoy a rare night off. And my skin feels fantastic afterwards! 

You can find When masks at Sephora and Sephora.com online HERE.
