Back to School Spa Party

Back to School Spa Party

Forget the holidays – back to school is by far the busiest time of year for our family.  So over the weekend, my teen daughter Aubrey and I took some time to unwind by hosting a mother/daughter back to school spa party.  It was a totally girly afternoon of pampering facials, pretty mani/pedi’s and tasty bites.

The teens tested out products from Clean and Clear® for their facials.  Morning Burst® Fruit Infusions™ smoothing facial scrub was one of their faves. Aubrey said it smelled awesome and made her face feel “as smooth as a baby’s bottom”.   She’s been battling breakouts since school started a few weeks ago.  Between gymnastics practice four hours every evening and the stresses of her first year of high school, establishing a good skin care routine to battle breakouts has been a must.  Clean and Clear® makes a whole line of products just for breakout prone skin.  She has been using the Advantage® Acne Spot Treatment for existing blemishes and Persa-gel® 10 to prevent new ones.

The moms sipped mimosas while pampering ourselves with calming Aveeno® products.  My favorite product was the Aveeno® Active Naturals® Ultra-Calming® makeup removing wipes.  They smell incredible and are extremely gentle yet effective.  I have very sensitive facial skin.  Each time I use a new facial product it takes about a week for my skin to adjust – there’s always some level of irritation or redness.  Not the case with these wipes, my skin felt soft, smooth and comfortable after using them.

We finished our afternoon of spoiling ourselves with some pretty new polishes on our tips and toes.

The girls and I had a blast together.  It was the perfect way to recharge our batteries for the week ahead while bonding over some pampering treatments.

It’s Your Turn:  What’s your favorite way to refresh during this demanding time of year?  Tell me in the comments!
