Review Session Spa At Home [CC Beauty Live]

[I love spas, but being on a college budget doesn’t allow for visits to them. I like to create my own spa days at home, and this is something you all can do too! So I will be bringing you some of my favorite at home treatments with ingredients you already have.]

Winter is coming, and I don’t know about y’all but my face and hair could use some pampering. That being said, I can’t afford to just go take a spa day. There are some great treatments you can find right in your own home! And that means you don’t have to change out of your pajamas so if that’s not enticing, I don’t know what is.

In this video I’m going over some of my favorite hair and face treatments made with super simple ingredients that you probably already have. Watch on!

On my face: MAC Studiofix powder, Laura Gellar bronzer, Painted Earth liquid blush in Flutter, Mary Kay eye pencil, Painted Earth mascara

    You may have already done one but if not, could you possibly do a review of the Clarisonic system? Especially in regard to different skin types. I've been considering buying one but I'm prone to breakouts and my skin is very sensitive so I'm skeptical. Thanks!

    1. Caitlin-University of Alabama says:

      Hey Ashton, I did a review of the Clarisonic a while back:

      I also have sensitive and acne-prone skin, but I have to tell you the Clarisonic is amazing. They have a sensitive skin brush head, which I use. It's a lot softer than the regular one so it doesn't cause a lot of irritation, but it still gets the job done. You will notice a few breakouts in the first week or so of using it because it's cleaning deeper than your skin is used to, but it will balance out. Let me know if you have any questions!

  2. Ashton says:

    Okay thanks! If you have acne prone skin you must be a pro at covering it up because it never looks that way in videos. I'll give a shot and see how it goes…

      Oh thank you! It's been behaving lately. Take a look at the Clarisonic Mia too, it's smaller and cheaper but it does basically the same thing. Keep me updated!

    Next time I have a girls night in, I def want to try to make some DIY masks. Reminds me of the good old middle school days!

    I've never had a spa facial either, but I would love to try it.

    Loved your post for the face and hair masks. Will have to try them soon… I do have a great recipe for super smooth legs by using a sugar scrub to save with. Your legs will be so soft and smooth and hydrated after you use this. There are lots of different recipes online you can go with but I use 1c. sugar (regular white), about 1/3c. coconut oil, 2tbsp. sunflower oil, and a splash of vanilla. You can adjust the recipe depending on how much you wish to make. Shave once w/ soap or gel. Rub your sugar scrub onto legs, rinse and them apply more scrub and shave legs again. Rinse when done and legs will be super smooth and soft.

  5. You can make an oatmeal mask with raw uncooked oatmeal and water and mash around the mixture in the bowl. Once it's mushy enough, you can apply it to your face. You can use raw sugar to gently scrub off your dead skin cells. Then you can wash it off with soap and water. You can put baby oil on your hair and put a shower cap on. When you wash it off, your hair will be so smooth. You can give your hands and feet a little massage with soap and water. Afterwards, you can lather on some mice lotion. You can cut up some cucumbers to place over your eyes. You can also use black tea bags to put over your eyes. You should make some green tea to drink. You should put on some soothing music and turn on some candles. Have fun!

  6. My friend and I were planning on having a sleepover and doing spa treatments. We want something to do our face, hair, skin, nails, eyes and stuff like that. What could we use and what could we do to have a fun spa night?

    Oh thank you! It's been acting lately. Take a look at the Clarisonic Mia too, it's small and less expensive but it does generally the same factor. Keep me updated!

  8. going to a spa isn't a waste of time and money, but something that can make you feel good on the spot and be healthier when you come back from it.
