I am SOO excited…I feel like I discovered a hidden gem of a brand- Spa Technologies. I was spoiled by my bf to a spa day at the Montage in Laguna Beach (A MUST VISIT) and I had one of the best facials in my life…the kind of facial where after you look GOOD, no red and pink. Of course I stocked up on products recommended by my esthetician and that is how I discovered Spa Technologies and their Eco Defense Moisturizer (with SPF!) I learned this is a small batch company dedicated to skincare derived from seaweed (it has a lot of anti-aging properties)! Read on for WHY you NEED to try this product:
WHY I LOVE SPA TECHNOLOGIES ECO DEFENCE:
Okay so you might have read this company is all about skincare derived from seaweed above and thought HUH?! Here’s the scoop: seaweed contains so many vitamins and minerals and where they live, in seawater, has almost the identical chemistry as blood plasma, lymph and human body fluids. Seaweed has also evolved overtime on Earth to withstand constant environmental changes and has cellular compounds that help protect it from environmental factors/dangers (think UV radiation, pollution, smoke, etc.). Therefore, the founder of the company (who also owned a seaweed farm….yes a thing) decided to formulate skincare with the incredible natural properties of seaweed! So I was STOKED to get my hands on the moisturizer and I am obsessed. It has the most incredibly subtle scent but no added fragrances- smells like cucumbers and it is easy to apply and immediately moisturizers the skin. There is never a white residue. It’s a silky smooth texture but won’t make you oily and the bottle is super easy to use and I feel like it lasts forever because the pump helps you preserve more product. I love using this under my make up and will apply other sunscreen over it too if I know I will be outside for extra protections since it is only SPF 25. But as someone who needs moisturizer every AM, this is my most used. I use it every time before I apply my makeup and it gives my skin the perfect glow that I know is from natural ingredients (it uses titanium dioxide- better-for-you skin protectant from the sun). The smell too is seriously AMAZING!! It is also a CLEAN brand -NO nasty additives.
WHEN TO USE SPA TECHNOLOGIES MOISTURIZER
I use my eco defense every single AM without fail and whenever I apply my makeup so even before a night out. It is the perfect amount of hydration- lightweight but effective. It’s perfect to reapply too- not sticky or thick so would be great to bring for a beach vacation.
WHERE TO BUY SPA TECHNOLOGIES
As I mentioned, I bought my Spa Technologies products directly through the Montage Spa however you can order everything online at their website! Use PINK15 for 15% off your order at checkout!
Again I feel like I discovered a true gem company- this gets 4.5/5 stars for me. I knocked it a half star because I do wish it had HIGHER SPF but honestly, I will use this daily until told otherwise….give it a try and let me know what you think!
