How To Transform Your Home Into Your Own Personal Spa

Sure, we can recreate spa-quality services with the right products in our own home, but can we just as easily recreate the ambiance? In our personal opinion, taking the time to dress up your environment makes at-home spa nights even more fun.

Try hanging some eucalyptus, or something menthol scented, within your shower. The added scent combined with the steam from your hot shower will give you an extra sense of calm and relaxation.

Steam some clean washcloths to use during your at-home facial treatments. Simply wet your washcloth and place it into your microwave for 30 seconds. Lay the washcloth on your face during or after a face mask to help boost moisture and draw out impurities.

Speaking of steam, give your face a steam bath. FIll a large bowl with hot, boiling water. Toss a few dried herbs or an essential oil into the bowl (lavender or thyme works wonders), cover your head with a towel and let the steam engulf you.

While you’re pampering yourself, make yourself feel like you’re at a spa by sipping on some spa inspired water. Fill a pitcher with water, ice and your favorite sliced fruit. Let it sit for a few minutes and pour yourself a glass for extra vitamins and antioxidants.

Finally, light some candles. Tea lights, giant Yankee candles, every candle you have to finish off your at-home spa ambiance. Now you’re ready to pamper yourself.

Don’t forget that we’re giving away two Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel (Extra Strength Formula) Kits (valued at $148!)  to two separate Twitter followers this week! You know, a little something extra to help out with your at-home spa nights.

Fekkai At New York Fashion Week

At-Home Pampering : Replenish Your Skin

We just ended a very long, hot and sunshine-y summer. We loved spending our weekends outside; taking in the beautiful weather after such a cold and brutal winter, but unfortunately, summer can take a toll on our skin.

Overexposure to the natural elements - such as high temperatures, the sun, salt water and air - mixed with pool chlorine and insect repellent can definitely leave our skin dry, flaky and irritated.

Now is the time to fix that. Take a night to yourself to focus on replenishing your skin. We love to use h2o+ products to take care of the skin on our bodies. Specifically the h2o+ Sea Salt Must Haves Kit. Within one small and compact package comes everything you need to fix the summer damage. 

The Sea Foaming Body Polish will help to smooth your skin and remove any dead skin cells that summer left behind. The Sea Salt Body Wash with lather away any excess impurities and the Sea Salt Hydrating Body Butter intensely moisturizes and softens your skin post exfoliation. If body butter is not doing the trick, the fast absorbing dry oil moisture spray, Sea Salt Hydrating Body Gloss, will instantly illuminate your skin.

Don’t ignore the skin on your hands throughout this process. The h2o+ Targeted Care Hand & Nail Cream will intensely moisturize your hand and cuticles with shea butter and vitamin E.

Treating the skin on your face is another story. The skin on your face is naturally more sensitive so it’s important to take care, as over exfoliation can actually lead to inflammation, causing more damage in the long run. Harper’s Bazaar recently features Dr. Dennis Gross’s Alpha Beta Peel Pads as a great way to clean out your skin once or twice a week, without doing any further damage.

Don’t forget that we’re giving away two Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel (Extra Strength Formula) Kits (valued at $148!)  to two separate Twitter followers this week!

At-Home Pampering, We All Deserve It

We’re all busy. With work, family, friends it can be hard to find any time to yourself. Although, as hard as finding some alone time can be, solitude is absolutely necessary.

Time alone allows you to reboot your brain and unwind, thus improving your concentration and increasing your productivity. Not only are there cognitive benefits of alone time, solitude helps you grow emotionally as well. Being alone allows you to relax and reset your stresses, which in turn can help improve your relationships with others, and yourself.

So much good can come from your time alone, so make sure you find a way to do something for yourself each week. Here at 3FLOZ, we love to treat ourselves in the form of at-home pampering. Unfortunately, a trip to the spa can sometimes be more time consuming than your schedule will allow, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give yourself your very own spa day. 

One of our favorite at-home spa treatments is a quick and easy face peel. First, we like to prep our skin with a quick, yet thorough wash with Dr. Dennis Gross’ All in One Cleanser with Toner. This cleanser will clean, tone and remove any leftover makeup in one simple wash. The formula (which includes Witch Hazel, Chamomile, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamins A, C and E) restores and removes makeup and impurities without stripping, leaving your skin fresh, clean and balanced.

Next, we like to use Dr. Dennis Gross’ Alpha Beta Peel to fight aging and produce immediate and lasting, beautiful skin. These 2 step towelettes make achieving radiant and glowing skin so simple we can’t get enough of them. This product is the only peel on the market to combine 5 Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids PLUS Retinol, Ubiquione, Resveratrol and a whole host of antioxidants, vitamins and soothing botanicals. 

Finally, we like to finish off our little at-home facial with Dr. Dennis Gross CC Cream. After applying our very own at-home peel, we want to extend the life of our newly radiant skin. This CC cream is a daily anti-aging treatment that provides flawless coverage, hydration and SPF protection without damaging our skin, like some foundations can. 

This is by far our favorite at-home spa treatment. It’s quick, easy and garners the same results as a luxury spa facial, without the heavy price tag. 

We know our customers are just as busy as we are, and would love to help you have an at-home spa night such as this one. That’s why we’re giving away two Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel (Extra Strength Formula) Kits (valued at $148!)  to two separate Twitter followers this week!

The 3FLOZ Product Awards

It’s that time of year! The summer awards season is currently underway. With the 2014 MTV VMAs airing last night and the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards showcasing tonight, we were feeling inspired. 

We broke down our most major product categories (Kits, Hair, Face, Wellness and Body) and decided to highlight our best selling products of 2014 (so far) from each product category! We’ll spend each day this week sharing our best selling products and why we think our customers love them.

Today, we’re talking about our best selling 3FLOZ Kit of 2014: The Travel Essentials Kit.

Why do customers love our Travel Essentials Kit? Because it offers everything you could possibly need in your carry on (or even day-to-day bag) for a mere $36.

The kit includes: 

  • Help: I’ve Cut Myself: 16 adhesive bandages
  • Help: I Have A Headache: Contains 325 mg uncoated and uncolored acetaminophen caplets
  • Supersmile Toothpaste: Whitens, freshens, strengthens and protects your teeth. 
  • The Laundress Crease Release: We’ve learned from experience that stuffing clothes into suitcases make wrinkles unavoidable. Simply release those creases with this perfect spray mist.

Which 3FLOZ Kit is your personal favorite?

Sensitive Skin? Use Oil-Free Moisture.

Sensitive skin? Come sit with us. 

We know what it’s like to have troubled skin. Sensitive, oily, acne-prone, combination, you name it; one of us has experienced it. That’s why we opt for Dr. Dennis Gross products. His propriety blend of detoxifying ingredients penetrate deep into your skin to efficiently neutralize harmful metals and free radicals left behind by tap water and perspiration. 

Not only are his products going to protect your skin, they’re going to help improve your skin. Dr. Gross’ research shows that the moisturizer’s potent antioxidants, peptides, and vitamins reverse the signs of aging and damage without causing irritation (shout out to our sensitive skin customers.)

A must have product? The lightweight moisturizer that absorbs quickly and never leaves your skin feeling oily. It protects, repairs, and reverses the signs of aging with powerful antioxidants, peptides and Dr. Gross’ proprietary Chelating Complex (a blend of detoxifying compounds that protect skin from harmful elements.)

Why is this moisturizer so ideal for those with difficult skin types? Because it’s fragrance and oil free. Lightweight and quick-absorbing. Anti-aging with ultra-light hydration that also defends against breakouts. Seriously, it does everything.

Life’s Necessities: Hydra Pure Smart Spray

A good facial spray is an important constant in our 3FLOZ beauty cabinet. We love facial sprays because they quickly (but temporarily) change the appearance of your skin, and because they make your skin feel instantly refreshed and revived.

This week, we’re highlighting our absolute favorite facial spray, the Dr. Dennis Gross Hydra Pure Smart Spray. The Hydra Pure Smart Spray is a refreshing spray that acts as a pollution shield with Dr. Gross’ proprietary blend of detoxifying compounds that protect skin from harmful elements while protecting against impurities. It immediately protects and improves skin texture, and contains natural antibacterial properties with Tea Tree Oil.

This spray is is different because it is the only detoxifying formula that combines hydration and anti-aging properties in a sanitizing “shield” to protect against free radicals. It also sets & refreshes your makeup, hydrates, tones, balances and revitalizes skin with invigorating Peppermint Oil.

Perfect anytime, we wouldn’t be caught without our Hydra Pure Smart Spray.

And you shouldn’t be caught without a bottle either! Luckily, we’re giving away a Hydra Pure Smart Spray this week!

Get Up And Get On With Your Day

So you had a crazy night out. That’s okay, we’ve all been there. Luckily, we’re now able to enjoy our nights out without fearing the next morning, thanks to Blowfish.

If you’re experiencing a hangover, immediately drop two Blowfish effervescent tablets in a 16 ounce glass of water, drink, and get on with your day. We love Blowfish because it is an FDA-registered, over-the-counter drug that was specifically formulated to treat your hangover symptoms quickly.

You’ll be feeling better in no time, but unfortunately, Blowfish can’t cure all side effects of a night out. Lack of sleep and the dehydration that comes alongside drinking can affect your skin, and not for the better.

Be sure to use a product like an energizing eye cream to help brighten up your skin alongside your Blowfish for added hangover relief (in more ways than one.)

We use Ole Henriksen’s Fresh Start Eye Cream when our skin needs a morning after boost. Rich and luxurious from the moment it touches the skin, fresh start helps diminish lines and wrinkles in the delicate eye area and protects against future damage. Just what we need when our skin is dehydrated and tired.

This is our tried and true hangover cure and we wouldn’t have a morning after without it. With the end of summer coming near we know our customers will be out enjoying themselves at parties and beach bars as often as they can, so we wanted to give away our favorite hangover cure to help.

Here’s how you can win a package of Blowfish?
