Happy Tuesday Gorgeous!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving and took some time to relax and reflect on what you’re grateful for. I love that this holiday gives us the opportunity to really think about gratitude. However, now that Thanksgiving has past, the focus is on the holiday season ahead and I can already sense that my clients are stressed. This time of year is filled with holiday parties and events, family visiting from out of town, and crowded stores packed with people looking for the perfect gifts for their loved ones. During the end of November and the majority of December, I see my clients overextend themselves and become frazzled by the sheer amount of things on their to-do lists. While I understand that it’s a busy season, I always encourage my clients to put effort into self-care so they’re able to sustain the pace at which they live their lives. Last week, I introduced my Rose Quartz Ritual Gift Set, which has already received amazing feedback! This week, I am happy to announce that in collaboration with Etre Bien, I am releasing a second limited-edition holiday gift set to complete the self-care ritual. The Bath + Mask Multitasking Gift Set is perfect for yourself or as a gift for anyone in desperate need of self-care this holiday season.

My Bath & Mask Multitasking Gift Set includes my best-selling Blemish Peel Mask and Etre Bien’s Rose Quartz Bath Potion. These two products are both multitaskers themselves, but also encourage you to multitask by taking a bath and using the mask at the same time. Using my tri-purpose Blemish Peel Mask while in a warm bath allows the powerful formula to really detoxify and unclog pores thanks to the warm bath opening your pores. I also love that this mask can be used as a sleeping mask, a spot treatment or a 3-minute peel, making it like three products in one. The stimulating herbs in the formula help speed up skin’s microcirculatory system, helping to fade acne scars, oxygenate, unclog, and deep cleanse within skin’s dermal layers. You’ll notice a more even skin tone, brighter complexion, and reduced blackheads and whiteheads with just one use. Powerhouse ingredients Sage and Spearmint remove toxins and oxygenate the skin, while Kaolin clay draws out impurities from pores. The addition of Pomegranate Seed Oil nourishes problem skin with much-needed essential fatty acids. I like to say that for those of you who can’t get to my NYC skincare salon, this invigorating peel is the closest thing to one of my facial treatments.

Etre Bien’s Rose Quartz Bath Potion is the perfect compliment to my Blemish Peel Mask. This magical bath soak is infused with Madagascar Rose Quartz Crystals to encourage emotional healing, self-love, and the release of stress, something we could all use every now and then. Rose Quartz is the stone of love and gentleness, which makes for a wonderful addition to a bath (and is also why I utilized this powerful stone in my Rose Quartz Gua Sha Tool!). The combination of therapeutic-grade essential oils and crystals facilitates the opening of the heart chakra while dissolving anger and resentment. The unique floral scent has hints of rose, geranium, bergamot, and frankincense, which blend together synergistically to create a heavenly aroma. In addition to being a great aromatherapy bath, each jar also includes a genuine Madagascar Rose Quartz crystal, which is to be added to the bath water. It may sound odd but bathing with crystals allows the water to take on the energetic properties of the stones, creating a high vibe, metaphysical bath experience. I love that you can keep the crystal after your bath potion runs out to add to future baths, tuck beneath your pillow for healing dreams, or to keep with you during times of stress or emotional strife. I especially like to keep a piece of Rose Quartz on my vanity to help infuse my daily skincare and makeup routine with some self-love.

As I’ve discussed in the past, I believe that creating a bath ritual helps to make bathing an immersive, relaxing experience. I highly recommend pairing the two gift sets together for the ultimate at-home spa experience. My suggested order of use is as follows:

1.) Dry brush to exfoliate and stimulate the lymphatic system (for step-by-step dry brush instructions, click here)
2.) Take a bath using the Rose Quartz Bath Potion to relieve stress
3.) While in the tub, apply the Blemish Peel Mask to your face to help detox your pores
4.) Once you wash off the mask and exit the tub, apply the Rose Quartz Body Elixir to your damp skin to moisturize
5.) Finish by applying 1-2 drops of my Black Currant Serum to the face and using the 6.) Use the Rose Quartz Gua Sha Tool to perform some gua sha on the face for glowing, youthful skin (for step-by-step gua sha instructions, click here)
