Products Yoshie used on my hair

In an effort to rid the accustomed method of zapping off inches of hair strictly one time per year, I recently had a hair date with Pierre Michel salon for a day of decadence.  The 10,000-square-foot behemoth of a monument sits at Lexington Avenue and 57th Street with over 61 workstations and three private treatment rooms.  Upon stepping foot into the salon, there was without a doubt good reasoning behind their 40+ year existence.  After visiting various locations in the city, Pierre Michel has maintained its recent location for about four years.  Every luxurious detail stood out: complimentary snacks and beverages at a marble-topped coffee bar, built-in massage chairs while being shampooed, free Wi-Fi, and even the bathrooms are accessorized with Dyson Airblade hand dryers.  

After being draped in a Pierre Michel robe by one of their employees who has been loyal to the company for over 30 years, I was escorted to the shampoo room where I instantly sunk into the massage chair and felt utter relaxation.  Post-shampooing, I was advanced to consult with Yoshie, who is considered my go-to stylist whenever visiting New York City.  We discussed exactly what I wanted, how I typically style my hair, products to use, and she even inquired about the barrel size of curling iron that I use.  I placed my life in her hands as she artistically trimmed away at my locks, leaving me feeling like a million bucks.  I'm not the only who feels like a whole new woman after receiving a beautiful cut, right?  Let's just say I'm ditching any other hair stylist and flying straight to the city next time I need a trim.  Yoshie also introduced me to a hair service, Japanese hair straightening, which saturates the bonds within hair that gives its shape using a solution. Whatever the latest hair trends are, Pierre Michel covers it all.  Haircuts and styling start at $135, but it's completely worth it. 

In addition to hair services, Pierre Michel also offers eyelash extensions, facial treatments, waxing, makeup applications, manicures and pedicures as well.  If you are ever in Manhattan, stop by Pierre Michel for a day of luxury.

My Favorite Fall Skincare Line

One of my favorite new skincare discoveries for the fall season is Luv Ya Skincare, which is a comprehensive face line that offers formulations using natural active botanicals and pure essential oils.  I typically stick to Clean & Clear or Neutrogena for my daily facial cleanser, but after trying out this line I was highly impressed with the quality of ingredients in the products.

Luv Ya Skincare's Vitamin A Pumpkin Cleanser is like pumpkin pie in a bottle - seriously.  Applying this cleanser felt as if my face was devouring dessert, while providing nutrition to the face that firms and tightens.  Containing key ingredients such as Vitamin A and Beta Carotene, the formula left my skin feeling fresh and smooth.

After testing out the cleanser, I applied Luv Ya Skincare's Balancing Toner which helped cleanse a little deeper in the pores and really brightened up my face.  The toner contains a powerful ingredient, witch hazel, that I have used in the past and find it to effectively clean out my pores.

Aside from cleansing and toning, the skincare line digs a little deeper to refine the face and purify skin.  I also tried out the Kukui Nut Scrub as an exfoliator, which contains a volcanic source to wipe away dead cells without harsh abrasion.  I've used a lot of exfoliators that feel like my face is being ripped off, but this one is mild enough while still removing the dead skin with ease.  A few other favorites of mine are the C+ Collagen Serum and the Collagen Mask which made my skin feel absolutely amazing and gave my face a glow!  My skin is oily and sometimes skincare lines don't work well with my type, but Luv Ya Skincare really impressed me with the quick results.

As for daytime products, the SPF 30+ Moisturizer was the perfect enriching hydrator to put on under my makeup AND it blends well with cosmetics.  Do any of you know what I'm talking about?  There's nothing worse than applying a moisturizer that leaves your makeup looking like a greasy mess.  However, the SPF 30+ moisturizer contains no oil, which worked heavenly with my skin type.  

At night, I tried out the Intensive Eye Cream with Murumuru (I had no idea what this was prior to trying it out, but it's a fruit from the amazon rainforest rich in nutrition and moisture).  Let's just say I went to sleep with dark circles under my eyes and woke up looking refreshened.

I'm not the type to give good product reviews for products that I don't honestly think highly of, so believe me when I say that the quality of Luv Ya Skincare is amazing!  If you are looking for a new skincare line for the new season, check it out at LuvYaSkin.com
