Best in Spa

What's better than a day at the spa? An evening showcasing all the best in organic spa products!!  Last week I had the decadent opportunity to attend Organic Spa Magazine’s wellness event at The Peninsula Beverly Hills. 


Brands like Golden Door, Riviera Maya Xpá at Xcaret, The Organic Face and Kari Gran offered mini-wellness treatments in private poolside cabanas while tables were set up with samplings of the best in spa.  Fabulous to say the least!  Take a look at the latest and greatest discoveries in organic skincare.
