Sundance Update: Better Than Being a Kid on Halloween

Greetings from Park City, Utah! I apologize, but due to a hectic Sundance Festival schedule today, my Sunday Splurge is going to be a Monday Splurge.  I promise, it will be worth the wait!

I don’t have much time to write, but how could I not update you on yesterday’s beauty binge blitz??? Check out the bottom right photo to see the beauty booty I scored yesterday.  As soon as I got home, I sat on my bed with my legs-crossed,  dumped my bag of goodies, and carefully examined  and delighted in every item. I’m telling you, it put my childhood Halloween experiences to shame.

Thanks to my friend Molly, we started the day at Mountain Body, the Shangri-la of beauty product boutiques.  Molly has been a long-time online customer since her first Mountain Body experience at Sundance a couple years ago.  She knew I would fall in love with their products and that I would want to spend some time playing with the products, so she was sure to make it our first stop.  Mountain Body carries other organic brands like Eminence (which we all know I love), but their own brand is the highlight of this boutique.  Their gorgeous products are handmade with local ingredients like minerals, muds, and lake bed salts.   They even have an Herbal Cosmetic Deli, featuring fresh masks and cleansers in chilled gelato tubs.  My salesperson, Veronika, was nice enough to give me a deluxe sample of their cold cream, which took my makeup off easily and had a cooling, healing affect.  Veronika even gave me a luxurious 4-step hand treatment that left my hands coated with an invisible moisture forcefield.

These products are too delicious to not devote a separate post. Expect my review of my favorite Mountain Body products by the end of the week. Their scrubs, creams, and balms are perfect for the harsh, cold weather!

After  Mountain Body, we  headed to the Lumene Lounge, where I got a fabulous mini-facial (see above left photo) and walked away with a generous gift bag full of products I will actually use.  (They were also offering makeup applications from makeup artists, but I didn’t want to ruin my facial!)  Then we headed to Chic Suite by EMWPR and stocked up on Tocca BeautyEveryday Minerals, and I scored an adorable pair of knee-high socks and a hat for my handsome husband.

Before I knew it, I had to jump in a taxi and head to the Deer Valley St. Regis Remede Spa for a 90 
minute Intraceuticals facial that gave the “Fire and Ice” at the Mauna Lani serious competition.

This is just a teaser! I must jump in the shower and sample some of yesterday’s spoils!
