If you are in the city or you are planning a visit, definitely make time to stop by Bene Rialto! I had the upmost pleasure of attending the Bene Collective Press Preview & Lounge during New York Fashion Week. I had such a great time, I hated to leave. I mean who can really get their fill of being pampered? I went up to the 3rd floor entering the spa like oasis. Bene Rialto had different stations where you received a variety of treatments. I started mine at the Luluosophy who took me on a journey around the world with chocolate. I'm not a candy person, but I am a chocolate person and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. So tasty and so cute; it was a win, win.
From there I went to the Destiny Candle table. I sat down we exchanged pleasantries then she wanted to pour some of the liquid from the lit candle in my hand (yes, I said lit) promising it wouldn't burn. I was skeptical, but let it happen and you know what, I remained burn free. Turns out its not a candle per say, its made of oils that's perfect for moisturizing your skin or someone else's... Before I forget, the best part of this is that when you finish each candle there's an actual ring you can wear valued between $10 - $10,000! You can see some of them in the photo and yes there are gold ones too...
Next up, Key West Aloe and their luscious salt scrubs. I have a serious dry skin issue especially in the winter, so I'm always using a salt scrub in the shower once a week. What's fantastic about this brand is that the aloe helps protect it from being contaminated by bacteria. Being that the bathroom is a hot a damp place usually this was extremely beneficial for me to know and the sheer fact that the product was amazing! My hands were moisturized and felt so smooth; in case you were wondering I tried the coconut scent and it smelled delicious.
Now that my hands were properly moisturized it was a perfect time to stop by Jamberry nails. If you are not familiar with Jamberry they make nails stickers in basically any color, design or finish that you are craving to up your nail game. They last for about 2 weeks and they are so easy to apply. I chose a fun blue, green and gold diamond print to go with my already hunter green nail color.
My next stop is where I got something I desperately needed, my brows done by Wink! Believe it or not this was my first time getting my eyebrows threaded. I've always been more of a plucking & waxing girl. I was pleasantly surprised, it wasn't painful and they did a great job enhancing the shape without making them too thin. I definitely plan to go back. Eyebrows can change the entire look of your face, when you find somewhere you like you should stick with it.
Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to do everything like the makeup and hair although they seemed to be doing their best glam transformations on everyone that took a seat to be pampered. One of the most amazing products that I found over in this area was Color Wow. It's a temporary hair color product that you simply brush on your roots to cover up grays, roots, or even touch up highlights. The coolest part is it doesn't come off when you touch it, it looks natural, doesn't bleed onto your scalp and doesn't come out until you wash your hair. Pretty impressive stuff!
I got the chance to see it in action and the photo on the bottom left shows the dramatic change from grey back to brown.
My last and finale stop before leaving was with Black Lace Skin Jewelry. Black Lace Skin Jewelry recently feature on E! News, Today Show and others, takes temporary tattoos to the next level in artistic expression and in the level of quality. They were quite exquisite and very intricate. They also have gold and silver options if that's what you're into.
