In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash

I’m sorry to repeat myself when I say that Dermalogica products smell like the spa…

but Dermalogica products SMELL LIKE & make me feel like I’m AT THE SPA!!!

And THAT is a very good thing!!

With soothing fragrant oils of sandalwood, lavender, orange and clary sage I am left feeling like I’m at the spa whenever I take a bath before bed and cleanse with Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash ($26).


In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Dermalogica Conditioning Body Wash

These relaxing fragrances ready me for a deep, peaceful slumber. And the essential oils of tea tree, lemon, eucalyptus and rosemary gently purify the skin without stripping it of its natural moisturizers. This botanical cleanser is not only rich and skin-conditioning but is also soap-free!

Ideal for those with sensitive and/or dry skin, you’ll feel clean without feeling stripped and relaxed without spending a fortune!

Really, it’s a win-win!

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Leonor Greyl Masque Orchidee

You know how all the starlets, in all of those old 50s movies say “Oh, I can’t go out with you tonight. I’m washing my hair”?
And remember how what it really meant was simply, “I’m just not that into you”?

Well, last Friday night my fabulous friend Meg, over at Meg’s Makeup, asked me if I could go out and have some quality girlfriend time.

I reaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllly wanted to. I mean, Meg is the most fun and I always have the most honest, heartfelt conversations with that pretty lady. She’s a dear friend.

But, after a few weeks peppered with intense stress, I had committed to myself that Friday night would be ME-NIGHT!!

So, thanks to a deal on YipIt, I treated myself to an amazing massage at Sparadise and came back home to sink into the tub to finish GONE GIRL and have a glass of wine.

But even when I was supposed to relax, I knew I needed to do a little beauty maintenance. I mean why not be productive with all of that time spent relaxing?
What beauty ritual could I give myself?
Enter Leonor Greyl Masque Orchidee.

Leonor Greyl Masque Orchidee ($60)

That’s Orchid Mask, in French, to you non-francophiles.

And what a beauty ritual it was!
I left it on for my entire bath (about an hour and a half) and relished the rare solitude as well   as the buttery orchid scent of the mask.

Buttery orchid, conditioning goodness

After combing through with my detangling comb and rinsing it off in the shower, I could immediately tell that my hair was softer, fuller and more conditioned.

It rinsed out completely and easily and, after blowdrying, I was only left with soft, shiny, tangle-free locks with a hint of that subtle buttery orchid scent.

I had to learn more so I looked at Leonor Greyl’s website. One of their testimonials was from revered celebrity stylist, Chris McMillan.

Chris McMillan actually said,  “Leonor Greyl Orchid Mask transformed Jen’s hair. The weekly treatment works wonders on frizz.”

Y’all, he’s talking about JEN ANISTON there!!! Among the many stars who love Leonor Greyl are lovely ladies, Salma Hayek and Gwen Stefani. I knew I was in good company.

As I marveled at my own movie star hair, I remembered that Meg, herself, had turned me onto the product. Ah, the power of our subconscious.

All was right in the world.
