I got the chance to try Holistic Beauties’ BFF, their Best Face Friend, and I really do love it! It is so small and portable, and comes in pink so duh I wanted it (don’t worry, it comes in blue too). It is made of antibacterial silicon and that got me really interested in more. I am always worried that I am going to think I am doing something good for my face and not realize I am putting more germs on it. The BFF also has three different bristle textures AND fifteen adjustable intensities so you can find exactly what works for you. My face feels so soft after using it. I am excited to see how much it improves after using the BFF consistently.
I think one of my favorite things is how easily you can take it with you. You can get so into the groove of getting a good skincare routine down at home but when you travel it kind of falls apart. The BFF is small and light so throwing it in your overnight bag is easy. I have also been strangely concerned with fine lines (I will have another blog about that later) but the vibration of the BFF increases blood flow and collagen production AND renews elasticity and prevents aging by massaging your face muscles.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this product. It is just so simple yet does so much, what’s not to love? If you want to see it in action watch my very awkward video here HAHA! It is my first video attempt like this and I think I need some practice so don’t judge too hard. Click here to get 30% off your own BFF, you won’t regret it!
This past Thursday I got the opportunity to try out the Purify Sauna Lounge in Anaheim, a friend of mine invited me. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, I just knew it was a sauna. When I got there to be honest I was nervous. That seems so silly but I had only ever been in a sauna once and I wasn’t too sure about it, I am not always that great in the heat. As soon as I walked into Purify though I felt better just for the fact of how friendly the staff was. They helped me get signed in, offered me water, took my picture, and showed me how everything worked. It turns out my friend that invited me owns the place! She and her family are such good people so from that moment I knew it was going to be a great place.
The rundown, you get your own personal room with an individual sized sauna. It is almost set up like a tanning salon (there is one room that can accommodate two people if you prefer to go in with a friend, I think that could be fun). In your personal room you have the sauna which has glass walls and doors. There is also a TV so you can watch to pass the time. Before you go in you get your pick of either a peppermint or eucalyptus cold wet towel. You get two, one for while you’re in there, and one for afterwards. I definitely recommend keeping the second for after. You also want to make sure you bring a water in with you, I drank almost a whole 33 oz bottle. You undress, wrap in a towel, and relax in the sauna for 40 minutes! The saunas are on all day so there is a timer for you to know when to get out. The temperatures for these babies are set to 150 degrees. That sounds mostly crazy to sit in 150 degrees for 40 minutes, but believe me, if I can do it, almost anyone can. I told you, I am terrible in the heat but this I handled. Probably because it is mostly a dry heat, there is no steam involved. After about the first 10-15 minutes you will just start dumping out sweat. My friend told me you will sweat in places you didn’t even know you could, well she was right!
Now I didn’t realize the benefits of a sauna. Purify has all infrared saunas so the lights have a lot to do with it. The colors all have different benefits from relaxing to energizing. Using these saunas help you boost your metabolism, burn calories and loose weight, helps with muscle and joint pain, removes toxins, helps the appearance of cellulite, reduces stress and fatigue, improves your skin, and helps your immune system! I slept SO WELL that night. By the time I got home I was so relaxed it was really amazing. Someone at work the next day even commented on my skin. I was surprised with the results after just one session so you can assume I cannot wait to go back! The lounge offers various memberships that I am really interested in and I even have my boyfriend wanting to give it a try. If you live local you should really check it out!
