I fell in love with Skin Care Products from Hollywood’s biggest secret – Raya Spa

This winter my skin had the most unfortunate luck- it got drier.  Who knew that was possible?  I dream of smooth, dewy, pore less skin but reality, genes and well mother nature planned differently.  To some, this is no big deal, but then I question, if you are reading this aren’t we friends?  Don’t we share the same life goals?  Jokes aside, I was fortunate enough to receive skin care samples from a Hollywood Spa that dates back to the 1980’s.  

I fell in love with skin care products from Hollywood’s biggest secret – Raya Spa.  They sent samples of their Colagen – Elastin Cream, Under Eye & Neck Cream, Micro-Dermabrasion Cream and Bio Hydrating Cream.  For those of you who have dry skin, you know a true indicator if your skincare is working, is your makeup application.  Regardless of how expensive your foundation is, if you have dry skin, it almost always falls short of being flawless.
