Picture this: It’s Sunday morning and you’ve just woken up to the smell of a fresh pot of coffee brewing in the kitchen.
You fill up your favorite mug, lounge on the couch for a while and begin to plan out the week ahead of you. Normally you’d start to come down with a bad case of the #Sundayscaries – but not today. It’s self-care Sunday and you’ve planned to give your weekly routine a MAJOR refresh using your new products from the MiniLuxe Care Collection.
But where to start? Trust us, we’ve been there too. After millions of manicures completed in our studios across the country, we can confidently say – we’ve put the Care Collection to the test. We’re going to break down each product, highlight key ingredients and share how to use each of them together so that you can make your self-care game stronger that it ever has been before.
Let’s start with the basics.
The foundation of any quality, at-home spa experience is a Sugar Scrub AND a Salt Scrub. Why both you ask? Well, our Himalayan Salt Scrub will gently stimulate your skin to help reduce inflammation as its lavender scent relaxes, while our Exfoliating Sugar Scrub exfoliates and brightens tired, dull skin.
If you own a Himalayan Salt Rock, you probably know that it has cleansing properties (IYKYK) and our Himalayan Salt Scrub isn’t any different. It will purify and detoxify your skin leaving you with a brighter, softer complexion — and a deeper sense of calm.
The easy-to-spread, soothing formula of our Exfoliating Sugar Scrub is gentle enough for freshly shaved skin, will fight aging for you in a natural way and comes in two scents: a sweet, citrusy lemon scent with a hint of vanilla or a light, clean floral scent with subtle seaside undertones.
Pamper yourself in the shower with BOTH luxurious scrubs because you deserve it. Apply a generous scoop onto damp skin, massage in a circular motion and rinse to reveal soft, glowing skin.
Naturally, the next thing you will absolutely need to do on self-care Sunday is to moisturize. Moisturizing should already be a staple in your daily routine but if you want to achieve a glowing, supple and completely nourished complexion our Body Cream is just what you need. The shea butter will soften and hydrate your skin and its non-greasy formula will dry quickly so you can get right back into your tie-dyed lounge wear.
Available in bright, refreshing Citrus scent or light, clean Fresh scent — choose the one that best captures your daily MiniMoment.
Apply one generous pump of Body Cream as often as desired and massage into skin leaving a subtle glow.
Now that you are exfoliated, detoxified and moisturized you can move onto our favorite self-care activity – an at-home manicure! Our collection of versatile, non-toxic and 8-free Pure Polish will leave you with an effortless and chic manicure every time.
If you haven’t noticed yet – we feel very strongly that an honestly great manicure should be healthy for you. That’s why our Pure Polish was engineered to be free of the 8 most dangerous chemicals, pigments and bonding agents commonly found in nail polish.
Once your nails are perfectly polished give your hands some love too with our Anti Aging Hand Cream The ultra-hydrating and rich anti-aging ingredients in this product include squalene and antioxidant superhero vitamin E that work together to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Consider this a PSA: it’s never too early to start an anti-aging routine. Melt one pump of cream into the palms and backs of hands until it disappears into a subtle glow that gets to work instantly.
Arguably one of the most luxurious steps of self-care Sunday is the pedicure. There’s just something about having freshly painted toenails that will make you feel pampered and ready to step into the week ahead. Don’t stop at the polish though, extend the life of your pedicure with our Hydrating Foot Balm.
Our Hydrating Foot Balm’s quick drying formula contains eucalyptus, a natural pain reliever and anti-inflammatory, combined with menthol to soothe, hydrate and cool tired feet. The shea butter will keep your feet soft, nourished and always sandal or yoga-class ready.
Massage one pump of foot balm on callused areas (or slather all over like we do), leaving feet cool and moisturized. Pro tip: a perfect pairing with socks for when we’re not planning to leave the house – which is every day these days.
Last but certainly not least – be sure to use our Nourishing Cuticle Oil to top it all off. This hero product contains a nutrient-rich blend of eight all-natural oils, vitamin E and pure essential oils to help moisturize cuticles and grow your nails out healthy and strong.
So, whether you are looking to give your self-care Sunday routine a complete upgrade or are just adding a few extra touches to your current regimen, the Care Collection has you covered.
