Lady Spa Spa loves it: Mia Tempo is a DIY spa day in a box!

It’s a big football day at my house so I could not think of a better way to occupy myself with a little “me time” as I have zero interest in the sport so I decided break out my newly arrived Mia Tempo box . Hence the name, “Mia  Tempo” whose mission is to help women everywhere take and break and enjoy a little “Me Time”. The team at Mia Tempo seeks out the best of all-natural, organic products and shares them with you or your friends in quarterly care packages via a subscription. Or another option, you can opt for “Me Time, Anytime” packages available for purchase on demand so you never have to wait to enjoy your Mia Tempo.

This month’s Mia Tempo Box will benefit Angels for Kids Foundation. The company proudly donates a portion of the proceeds from each Mia Tempo Box to a different  women’s charity organization each month. That way not only are you taking time out for yourself but at the same time with a subscription you actually help women from all walks of life.


I was lucky enough to receive the Limited Edition MiaTempo Winter Signature Box.  Not only did the box come beautifully packaged but the products were all very high quality and I love the way they are so well thought out to Relax, Refresh, Renew.  There is not one product here that I cannot put to use and more than once too. I will be able to enjoy at least a few spa experiences out of the one box. It’s definitely a great gift idea for friends that love beauty and spa as much as I do. And each box comes with a treatment menu describing the products you have received, walking you through your spa journey.

Heres what my spa experience in a box consists of:

Step One: Relax:  

FSCN0022Chi Candle travel tin in Bartlett Pear, which happens to be one of my absolute favorite scents. Chi candles are eco-friendly, highly scented soy candles and smells amazing just like the fresh picked fruit! According to their website , this candle burns for over 35 hours! (Retail Value: $6.50)

DSCN0020Rinse Green Tea Tub Tea by Rinse Bath & Body-Its like a tea bag that you steep in your bath water consisting of a  blend of herbs & botanicals that are known to soothe & ease the skin & muscles along with green tea known to contain lots of great antioxidants that help detoxify the skin. Contains two tea bath bags. ($8 value)

DSCN0010Step Two: Refresh

Winter Wonderland Travel Suite Set from LaLicious, comes with four 2 oz. size travel friendly and all natural  products in the scent called Sugar Kiss. The set includes body oil, body butter,  body scrub and whipped body soap. I love this set! It smells like a combination of citrus, roses and vanilla all packaged in a really nice, durable transparent zippered case. It’s like a body treatment in a bag perfect for cleansing, exfoliating and hydrating. And the scent is one of those that leaves you licking your lips but you know it’s not for eating! (Retail Value: $28.00)

DSCN0024Oh and we cannot forget  about the ecotools  ecopouf sponge that came in the box. All eco tools are packaged or produced in an  eco-conscious way (Retail Value: $2.95)

Rinse Yogurt Mask: An apothecary jar filled with this powder allows you to make your fresh masks any time you like. You can mix the powder with milk, honey, cream or just water until it forms a paste. Apply to your face and rinse after ten minutes to enjoy soft and refreshed skin. ($10.95)

Step Three: Renew.

DSCN0017Back to the LaLicious Travel Set to complete the final steps. The LaLicious Body Butter or Body oil will preserve the amazing softness post bath without a greasy feeling. Mmmm this scent is so luscious you just want to apply and inhale! Aromatherapy at its finest.

Current pricing is well worth it! According to the letter I received with my box, the company will now be making this a quarterly subscription plan for 2014 instead of a monthly subscription service. Currently the cost of one is just $39.95 and you can see from the value of the contents that you definitely get a great value with all these high quality products you receive and the impressive presentation makes it a gift you will proud to give anyone!

Lady Spa Spa’s 8 Ways to Cure your Holiday Hangover

Doesn’t it seem like the holidays always come with a hangover?  From office parties, to chic cocktails, to family engagements and late nights dressed in a tacky Christmas sweater, the holidays can leave you looking less than lovely the morning after.  Now face the next day wide-eyed and bushy-tailed with these fail-proof beauty essentials to help you cure any holiday hangover.

1.     Cleanse last night away with the Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase HydraBalance Foaming Cleanser. A soap-free and non-drying, balancing formula restores the skin’s natural protective barrier to help it regain and retain lost moisture.

2.     Wake up your skin with a cooling spritz of the Jurlique Chamomile Soothing Mist to leave even the most tired skin feeling refreshed and hydrated.

3.     Now lock in the moisture with the Kinerase Advanced Lotion to condition while supporting your skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid. This gentle lotion visibly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles leaving you looking better than ever.

4.     Finish off your complexion rehab with a light layering of the Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup  or your favorite brand of BB Cream to even out your skin-tone while avoiding the dreaded “cake face.”

5.     Face feeling fresh but your eyes looking a little bloodshot? Start with the Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase Under Eye Recovery  to soothe and deflate puffiness for a bright-eyed appearance. As an added bonus, this affordable wonder also decreases dark circles as it brightens.

6.     Neutralize the redness and draw attention outward with a pale reflective shadow like Too Faced Exotic Color Eyeshadow.

7.     Complete the illusion of bigger eyes by tight-lining with the Too Faced 3 Way Lash Lining Tool.

8.      For a fresh-faced look that will leave people thinking you spent the morning doing Yoga apply a lip and cheek color like Too Faced Full Bloom Lip and Cheek Creme.

Product Picks: Lady Spa Spa loves Rodan + Fields

Lady Spa Spa just loves Rodan + Fields Dermatology line and here’s why. These two clever female Doctors; Doctor Katie Rodan and Doctor Kathie Fields invented the top global anti-acne remedy Proactiv Solution soon after leaving Stanford Medical School 15 years ago. This is STILL the “go to” solution for acne sufferers worldwide. Well, now they have invented a new ANTI AGE Dermatology line so that Lady Spa Spa followers can enjoy true dermatological solutions at  local spas….

Whether you look in the mirror and hate your wrinkles, sun damage (a big one for us Floridians), acne or irritated skin, the Doctors have a clinically proven solution for you available without a prescription. Lady Spa Spa tried the Anti Age regimen for wrinkles and sagging skin and saw a dramatic improvement in only 10 days. The Doctors call their Anti-Age Night Renewing Serum “Spanx for the skin” and we see why!

Lady Spa Spa predicts these products will soon be in your local favorite spa. Remember where you heard about it first!  However, if your skin just can’t wait that long, click here  to try the Doctor’s Solution Tool which is a fun, interactive way to find out what regimen is best suited for your skin concerns. You can also order the right regimen from this site too!

First Aid Beauty to the rescue with 5 in 1 Restore Cream

5 in 1 Restore Cream by First Aid Beauty (FAB) is not just your average face cream. After a pretty bad case of sunburn due to a random trip to the tanning bed I thought for sure I was going to “lose my face”. In the past with sunburn of this magnitude I experienced unsightly peeling for days which mixed with my foundation is always a beauty disaster.

After only about four days of using 5 in 1 Restore Cream I had very noticeable results not only when I touched my face but with the appearance of my skin as well. The dry scaly patches on my forehead vanished and my skin felt smoother and softer to the
touch. I also noticed an overall radiance to my skin tone that was not there before.  Best of all I  avoided any peeling all together!

What I LOVE about 5 in 1 Restore Cream:

  • It has the consistency of a very rich creamy night time moisturizer but without the usual greasiness. Instead of just using the cream before bed I actually use it during the day time as well, for double the results.
  • It does not feel heavy or cumbersome on my skin.
  • It literally gets absorbed into the skin on contact. I can put it on and then immediately follow with my foundation.
  • It is formulated without chemicals like parabens, sulfates, dyes and fragrances so I know I am using a pure product on my skin.

5 in 1 Restore Cream by FAB is NOT your average moisturizer it is formulated to offer you five different benefits, (hence the name 5 in 1):

1) Reduces appearance of wrinkles

2) Improve radiance

3) Correct uneven skin tone

4) Nourish and moisturize

5) Combat free radicals

What Else you should know:
Ideal for all skin types, this product is safe for even the most sensitive skin. It’s allergy-tested,  dermatologist-recommended, and contains First Aid Beauty’s Antioxidant Booster to combat free radicals.

Where to Buy It: You can buy the entire First Aid Beauty Line of products exclusively at  any Sephora location or via the First Aid Beauty online store . And no it won’t cost you an arm and a leg. 5 in 1 Restore Cream by F-A-B is just $38 dollars.
