My skin was still glowing from my facial with Aneta when I signed up for another day of pampering at the Clarins Skin Spa on Madison Ave. I began with a full body exfoliation with the Gommage Exfoliant Peau Neuve that not only exfoliates but softens, smooths and firms. This amazing product is made from bamboo powders and extracts of Mimosa and Shea. The treatment begins with the signature Eau Dynamisante fragrance by Clarins which begins the aromatherapy relaxation experience. This fragrance combines citrus with delicate woody notes to create a relaxing feeling. Then the lovely Aneta once again used her gentle healing touch to exfoliate my entire body using therapeutic hand movements to apply the exfoliant. I was then able to take a warm relaxing shower in the immaculate glass enclosed shower in the quiet treatment room. I used one of my new favorite Clarins products Bain aux Plantes Tonic which is an invigorating shower and bath gel made form essential oils of Rosemary, Mint and Geranium. After my shower I was gently massaged into a trance-like state. Aneta used the Clarins signature lymphatic drainage massage techniques to remove toxins and stimulate my circulation. She used a combination of Huile Tonic body treatment oil, Creme Masvelt Body Shaping Cream and Lift Minceur Haute Definition cellulite control treatment. She custom designed the combination of treatment creams and oils to target my problem areas as well as create a relaxing aromatherapy experience. When I was finished my skin felt like silk and I immediately felt my skin more toned and tightened. I was even wearing a pair of patent leather leggings that slipped on and were lose like I had already lost inches. This 2 hour treatment combined with a facial in my opinion is the ultimate in a day of luxurious beauty!
I have had the pleasure of knowing both Debra and Danielle Joseph's of the Anita Kaufman Foundation which was founded to promote epilepsy awareness. I was thrilled to be the key makeup artist for the Purple Event launched last year during New York Fashion Weeks Fashion Night Out. This year I have had the pleasure of being the key makeup artist for The Purple Cupcake Day ad campaign featuring fashion model Jaime Paetz. Jaime is the face of the Anita Kaufman Foundation who suffers from epilepsy personally. We partnered with the famous New York renown Magnolia Bakery and fashion photographer Anna Thiessen to create a vintage photo shoot for the campaign.
The Purple Cupcake Project will take place March 20-26th. The participating bakeries across the country will donate fifty cents from each cupcake sale to the Anita Kaufaman Foundation.
