SFB Beauty: Kopari with Me

Posted on: June 13, 2017

Hey there Loves!

I hope you’re all having a great week so far! With the Summer weather in full swing, I wanted to share with you a brand and their products that I’m absolutely loving!

I’ve told you before, I have a huge obsession with coconuts. I also shared all the amazing benefits they have for your overall health and even beauty. If you missed that post you can read all about it here. A few post ago on my Instagram, I shared my newest product obsession with the brand Kopari. Kopari, is a slimmed-down version of the word ‘kopparai’ in Indian it means coconut. Coconut’s are the fruit of all fruits that have the most amazing benefits.

Coconuts are a delicious and nutritious source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It has tons of calcium, potassium, and magnesium, as well as plenty of electrolytes. Coconuts are full of diverse health benefits from protecting against heart diseases to preventing tooth decay! They can also protect against heart disease by increasing good cholesterol and lowering the ratio of bad and good cholesterol. They help treat malnutrition because it is easy to digest and absorb. Coconut’s also have great beauty benefits too.

Coconut oil can make your skin feel and look radiant! Who doesn’t want glowing skin!!? You skin feels smooth, hydrated, supple and moisturized. Coconut oil is made with fatty acids and the good kind that have great overall benefits: Lauric, Capric and Caprylic acids. These are good fats that help keep skin hydrated and super soft. Most importantly, it contains vitamin E , which is loaded with antioxidants to keep skin ageless and protect against dryness. Great anti-aging components that will keep us looking beautiful and youthful. Not only does coconut oil do wonders on your skin but your hair too. Coconut oil can make your hair look and feel soft, luscious, strong, shiny and healthy. Coconuts are full of restorative proteins and vitamin E which help to increase body and shine to your hair.

Kopari takes coconut oil to the next level… Only using pure, innovative, organic ingredients to enhance its overall performance. Now, how can you not want to try Kopari after all hearing all of it’s amazing benefits.

My Caudalie Experience

Posted on: October 18, 2016

Spa Day anybody? I say YASSS and ABSOLUTELY to a spa day any day.

With Spa week in full swing, I thought it would be fitting to share my experience at the Caudalie boutique store and spa on Bleeker Street, NYC.  I have been a huge fan of Caudalie and their products for many years, but I have to say this is one spa that I haven’t visited until now.

Nothing makes me and my skin happier than a little TLC at the spa. I had an amazing experience overall. I visited Caudalie on Bleeker Street, back in August. A day to relax and unwind. Also a great way to prep my body and skin for my upcoming trips. A great way to let my skin and body breathe and get revitalized and rejuvenated.

Upon arriving at the Caudalie Bleeker Street boutique, I was greeted by the staff with a glass of their draining tea. One of my favorite teas that aids in detox. It’s a delicious blend of 5 100% organic* plants, these herbal infusions were exclusively created for the Vinothérapie® Tisanerie des Spas. It’s meant to accelerate the elimination of water and toxins for an immediate sensation of well-being. The staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Treatments:

Vinosource Anti-Oxidant Hydrating Facial

A skin-renewing treatment to deeply moisturise the skin. This treatment starts with a gentle cleansing of the skin. A modelage with fresh grapes followed by a recovery essential oil modelage soothes dryness. The application of an intensely moisturising mask, and our Vinosource products restore moisture levels for a healthy and glowing appearance.

Divine Body Treatment 

A relaxing body massage featuring our award winning Divine Oil, a combination of 4 exceptional plant oils. Your skin will be luxuriously softened, moisturized and wrapped in a delicate floral fragrance (rose, grapefruit, pink pepper, vanilla, cedar and white musk).

I had the most amazing specialist, her name is Melissa. If your ever in the NYC/West Village area be sure to ask for her she’s the best! She began her career with Caudalie at the founding Spa and store in Bordeaux, Paris , how AMAZING! She did an exceptional job at accessing my skin and what it needed during my visit. She’s also quite knowledgeable about the brand and their products. Melissa is the perfect Caudalie specialist to ask all your skincare questions and needs.

I came on a great day too, they were celebrating the release and Collaboration of their newly designed product and one of my favorites I might add, their beauty elixir. Jason Wu x Caudalie, if you haven’t tried their beauty elixir I highly suggest you should. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. Be sure to pick up a bottle of your very own the limited edition collaboration Jason Wu Design beauty elixir available in stores and at a Sephora near you.

After my treatments, I felt re-energized and refreshed. I’m all about amazing skincare and using the right products that my skin needs. I’m a huge fan of the Caudalie brand and their products. Their spa experience is an added plus. The Caudalie spa and boutique was not only relaxing but the ambiance and interior design was so very zen and luxurious. Definitely a place I’d come back and visit. If you haven’t been to the Caudalie Store and Spa you should definitely check it out.
