February Must Haves


Number 1 on the list is an Anjou Pear Candle. I'm a huge fan of candles because they make my environment smell good. I like to turn on the candle when I'm in a good mood or in a bad mood. Candles have a way of making life feel better. I really like the aesthetic candles create. I like to light up the candle when I'm watching T.V. with all the lights turned off to creates a cozy feeling. The bonus part about this candle is that you can see the slices of pears in the candle which makes it atheistically pleasing. This candle just adds a beautiful ambience to your room. This just one candle is able to permeate through the whole house proving that this needs to be added to your cart right away. 



         The next one the list is the Rosewater Balancing Mist. This is the most hydrating the facial mist. Since the weather is dry around this season your skin feels extra dry. I like to spray the rosewater onto my face to hydrates it and smell an aroma of roses. One thing I'm really particular on is the smell of products. I tend to love the smell of roses but it's hard to get a product that truly smells like roses. That's not a  problem with the Balancing facial mist, it smells like true fresh bouquets of roses. I like to apply the mist throughout the day. Especially when taking of my mask off after a long period of having it on, my face feels dry. The face mist is perfect way to refresh and bring some life back to my face.




Now, I put this one on the list for the packaging of the Apricot body Oil. It comes in a beautiful sexy orange color clear bottle. I am not a fan of apricots or the smell of them but there's something so unique about this body oil that I let this one slide.  One of the best things about the body oil is that is doesn't take much work to lather on the body, the body oil is automatically absorbed onto your skin. It's not super oily which is perfect, it leaves your skin feeling hydrated and soft. I'm a huge fan of body lotion but now I think that the apricot body oil is the way to go. After applying the apricot oil your skin is left with a nice settle glow. Just a few drops goes a long ways for you skin.

I saved the best of last because it's a holy grail product. The strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant is an exfoliant for all skin types. I like to use this product to brighten and deep cleanse my face.  The deep cleanse helps with getting rid of dead skin and a deep clean into your pores. At the same time it has anti-aging properties. After getting rid of the dead tissue, it allows for new tissue to build with the speed up of blood circulation at the same time building collagen.  I like to place a little bit of the mix onto my blemishes and it helps clear them away. This is the best purchase you'll make. I like that it's a powder that you mix with water because this doesn't have an expiration date. A little bit of this product goes a long ways, it's worth investing in this product due to all the benefits it gives your skin.

Treating Masacne

mask acne – Health Essentials from Cleveland Clinic

 A lot of new things have become a trend and we are learning to adapt to this a new way of living. Masacne is now a thing! What is masacne? Mask acne is when you begin to break out where your mask covers your face. Wearing a mask helps us keep our loved ones safe but it can be disruptive to the skin. If you don't wear clean or new mask everyday then you will see red bumps around your chin and mouth. The mask prevents your germs from going out, but your germs are being trapped in which irritate the skin allowing break outs to happen. Another reason why your skin maybe breaking out may be the material that your mask is made of. You might be sensitive to the material.  It can also depend on the laundry detergent that you use to wash your mask. 



How to treat masacne? A great product to help you treat your blemishes is the Eminence Clear Skin Probiotic Masque.  When you first apply this product you will feel a tingling sensation. Make sure to leave on the masque for about 10 minutes and then rinse with a towel. You can use this product twice a week, you will see results after the first week. The mask works great on itself but to be even more effective is to use the clear skin probiotic moisturizer. A little bit goes a long way, make sure to put this on after your facial masque, use it as a skin care system. The results will speak for themselves with beautiful radiant skin. This is a good beginning to your skin care journey but if you want more out of your skin; then you should get the cleanser and serum as well. This can be your new updated skin care ritual. 

                        You can find all these products at Le Reve. You can order them online and pick them up or purchase them at the boutique. Mask on and great skin are the best!

We are open for you

     We are officially open again and ready to start the new chapter! Last year was quite the year, we learned how to adapt to a new era of uncertainties. For the first time in history we experienced social distancing. We gained a new understanding of what it was to live without spas. We found a new meaning for self grooming and self care in general. Being left to fetch for ourselves: we went from going to open Spas to being close. A variety of us waited for the hopes of a reopening but we kept waiting. Then some of us took matters into our hands and decided to give ourselves a mani and pedi, facials, self waxing. Searching on for youtube for tutorials to guide us but it's wasn't the same as going to a professional. Finding alternative ways to manage in the meantime while others just waited it out. 

    Le Reve Spa is officially up and running waiting for you to come in. We are here to pamper you! We are more than happy to assist you from head to toe. Do you need to relieve the stress from 2020? The fastest way to relieve stress from the year that should not be name is a massage. Another great way is a Mani and Pedi, not only are you getting a great hand and foot massage but you are also getting a new coat of polish to brighten your mood. There's nothing better than getting a new coat of polish on your nails. Remember that you can always upgrade your services! 

 
Basic is good but you are missing out on the other luxuries. For example you can always add hot stones to your spa expirence. This is a personal favorite of mine because it feels so nice and makes you feel so peaceful towards the end. Hot Stones just give you a sense of warmth and energy, it's indescribable. Another great treatment that you may want to add to your pedicure is the callout treatment which is a great way of getting rid of callouses on your feet, making them nice and smooth. For massages you can always extend your massage from a 30 minute to 90 minute. Remember that Le Reve Spa offers spa packages which is always the way to go. Each spa package is specifically designed for you.

Amanda's Holiday Picks

Check Out Amanda's Holiday Picks at Le Reve Organic Spa and Boutique


 For my holiday picks, I feel these are some of the most effective skin care and also underrated products one can use. 

To begin with in the order of usage, the Jurlique Nourishing Cleansing Oil will remove make up, dirt,
grime, and sebum build up. Using oil to cleanse the face may seem counterproductive, but using oil to combat oil is actually very effective! It's the first cleanser one would use in their face wash routine. It's also a bit astringent as it contains peppermint oil. A little goes a long way so use generously, so pump about 3 pumps into your hands, make due your skin is damp and begin by washing your face in circles making sure to clean throughly, don't forget the neck. 
Second in line, would be the Yam and Pumpkin Enzyme Peel. This peel is actually an exfoliant at 5% enzyme, meaning the level of effectiveness is safe to use at home without worrying of skin peeling or burning. It's great for hyperpigmentation, discoloration, and breakouts. Apply a think layer, as if you have nylon covering your face, leave on for 10-15 minutes. Use twice a week and follow up with sunscreen. Third, but definitely not least, is the stone crop mask. Using a 
mask is sooo important in any regular face regimen but it gets skipped over easily. This mask helps prevent breakouts and feeds the skin antioxidants to fight off aging and any damage from sun exposure and environmental toxins. Use twice and week and apply generously, like nylon. Leave on for 5-10 minutes max, follow up with a toner and moisturizer. Last, and the most important, is the Lavender Night Corrective Concentrate. If you want to age gracefully, and I can't stress this enough, you must use something that is for anti aging before again starts to occur! Using this at night is going to be best time to do so, no pun intended. When we sleep, we release a hormone called, human growth hormone or HGH, which helps our bodies heal and turnover new cells. With this product, you would be penetrating the skin at a deeper level and give the cells a boost, which in turn gives your skin a power punch of anti aging. What's better than that? 

Happy Holidays, Amanda
