Have a Weekend Spa Night In

spa night necessities | beauty bets

Midsummer is a great time to stay in for an at-home spa night. Give yourself, your hair, and your skin some R&R from the sun and heat. Here’s how it’s done in my house. –Dani

1. Grab some Davines Hair Care. If a beauty blogger tells you that they’re on their second set of something, then you know its good! Davines Love Shampoo ($24) & Conditioner  ($28) combined with their Beautifying Potion ($36) makes my hair super glossy.
2. We’re suckers for anything sparkly—-and this Sunny Side Bubble Bar by Lush ($7) is just that! Golden bubbles with a tangerine scent.
3. Sip on champagne! Try Cucpake Prosecco  ($11) to save or Gloria Ferrer Royal Cuvee ($32) for a little splurge.
4. Treat yourself to this Caldrea Aloe Water Apricot Body Wash  ($18) & Creme  ($28) . The scent is so good that I’m also eyeing the perfume ($18).
5. Relax with light, flowing tunes! A few in French definitely won’t hurt . . .

    ABOUT BETS
    Born and raised in Minnesota by surprisingly low-maintenance parents, beauty writer and lifestyle editor Elizabeth Dehn (aka Bets) spent her awkward years buying Mood lipstick and whipping up DIY face masks before founding Beauty Bets in 2009 as a way to share candid product reviews and real beauty advice for smart women everywhere. When she’s not test-driving the latest beauty treatment (bee venom facial, anyone?) or serving as the beauty editor for Mpls. St. Paul Magazine and ClementineDaily.com, Elizabeth can be spotted running the Minneapolis Lakes with her white lab, Molly Thomas, or sipping champagne on a killer patio. Pass the sunscreen.
