I loveeeeee spas. I find them so relaxing and wonderful and I wish I could be in a spa every other day of my life 🙂 Sadly, they’re not cheap (actually, they’re insanely expensive), so I tend to do at home spa nights a lot. I like to make an evening out of it, with numerous face masks, reading with my vitruvi diffuser, making tea, etc.

I’ve outlined all my favourite masks and the steps I take to get the best at home facial as well as some tips for relaxation. My husband and I have been using our vitruvi diffuser for years and we love it especially because it still looks good in our living room (as opposed to some other large, clunky ones). We’ve actually gifted it to numerous family members (including my brothers-in-law)! We just received the new charcoal colour, which comes out Sept 18th. They are also launching two new essential oil 100% pure essential oil blends, Retreat and Ceremony (I used Retreat for a relaxed, spa-like feel). I also want to note that all the plastic in the diffuser in BPA free and the oil blends are free of fillers, contaminants, diluting properties, and chemicals.

I hope this video is helpful (and perhaps relaxing?) and would love to hear your feedback!

I buy my Biologique Recherche online from Glow Therapy (if you live in Vancouver, they have great facials!)

    Love this for now in quarantine. I’ve been doing more masks now. How did you like “Behind Her Eyes”? Trippy, huh? 🙂
