My Favorite Wellness Month Beauty Products

IMG_8937Walking into the luxury Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Resort in Beverly Hills, I admired the exquisite flowers on a center table before attending an invitation-only special Wellness Month event at the hotel’s rooftop Secret Rose Garden.

Standing out on the rooftop overlooking Rodeo Drive, I was welcomed by Lisa Wang Michaelis, the founder of Wellness Month. “For the entire month of August it’s about self-care and putting yourself first,” she said. She introduced me to one of the representatives at the event, Jackson Schlekewey from Lucky Owl.img_8894

He showed me five different rings and offered me to select one. They are made with sterling silver and are hypoallergenic. Each ring has an affirmation word engraved on one side and a touch of bling on the other side, giving the wearer a chance to show a little reflection of one’s spirit and a friendly reminder of one’s aspirations.

Looking at Hustle, Believe, Love, Strength, and Truth, I selected Believe, because that is my mantra in life. These rings can be stacked on one finger if you chose to wear more than one declaration or just wear alone.

Jackson told me that these inspirational rings make wonderful gifts to yourself and others and during the month of August, Lucky Owl is offering a Wellness Month promotion – 30% off any item purchased by using promo-code WELLNESSMONTH. This article was featured in JustLuxe.IMG_8973

Also at the Wellness Month event at the Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Resort in Beverly Hills, I noticed a brightly colored Laki Naturals display. The entrepreneur and designer Tiffany Lerman informed me that Laki means “Lucky” in Hawaiian. She shared with me that all of her natural Hawaiian based bath and body skin care products capture the essence of Aloha. They are made without parabens, artificial additives, micro beads, sodium laurel sulfate, phtalates, synthetic dyes, gmo, petrochemicals, animal testing.img_8916

One of the most popular products are the Laki Natural Shower Fizzies. They turn your shower into a soothing and therapeutic spa-like experience. Activated by the stream and water droplets in your shower, it creates a calming cloud of essential oil aromas that rejuvenate your mind and body. There are 6 different scents: Rainbow Eucalyptus, Sea Breeze Grapefruit, Hawaiian Lavender, Lemongrass Luau, Orange Hibiscus and Peppermint Falls.

Next she showed me all of her Laki body scrubs made with only the purest and cleanest ingredients. The sea-salt exfoliation can be used twice a week to cleanse skin, promote circulation and stimulate the body’s energy flow.

Besides shower and bath products, Laki makes cleansing bars.
