A Few of My Favorite Things

A Few of My Favorite Thingssocka-01

By: Leigh Sell, Lead Esthetician

Tis the season for gift giving and getting. What will you be giving your loved ones this holiday season? A client recently shared that she threw a holiday party where each guest brought 3 of their favorite things to swap with other guests. This got me thinking about all of the times I’ve been asked “what is your favorite eye cream?” or “do you use products sold here at the spa?”. The answer is YES! Here are some of my favorite things at Vis-a-Vis.


This cleanser is a lifechanger for my dry skin. The light citrus scent is lovely and its a wonderful make up remover as well. Many people are a little hesitant to try a creamy cleanser because there is no foaming action, but the plant oils are a magnet for dirt, oil and debris in the skin. cucumber extract will help sensitive skin stay calm in harsh winter weather. Creamy cleansers are amazing because they don’t  “over cleanse” the skin creating imbalance. Click here to shop!

Lira MYSTIQ Perfecting EYE CREAM

I am a huge fan of eye creams. The skin around the eye area is thin and fragile. Eye creams are developed to be more nourishing and hydrating for this delicate skin. This eye cream is super charged with peptides and plant stem cells. Perfecting eye cream helps to diminish dark circles, reducing puffiness and fine lines.


Pronounced “ho-ho-ba”) oil.

This light golden oil is a lot like your skins natural oils, and comes from a seed from a shrub. It has anti-inflammatory/ anti fungal properties and can be used all over the body and face. Our Jojoba oil is grown organically and because there is only one ingredient.. safe for the most sensitive of skins. Try applying it just out of the shower for velvety skin or add a few drops to your moisturizer for chapped winter skin.


This moisturizer is so protective and rich its considered a balm! I do believe it has magical repairing qualities. Omega Balm is rich in Omega fatty acids that can slow the aging process and rebuild your skins barrier. It also contains concentrated botanical s that take away inflammation.


There are so many choices when it comes to lip products these days. I love the V2 Lip balms because of the simple, healthy, and hydrating ingredients. Organic coconut oil, vitamin E and beeswax. My favorites are Hibiscus, Lemon Cookie, Chai and Nectarine. Okay I love them all! Click here to shop!


This is my favorite anti- aging serum. Apparently others agree as it has won numerous spa awards over the last couple of years. Firming Serum contains eleven..yes eleven Peptides. These proteins act as little cell communicators helping to increase firmness, brighten and soften fine lines. It also contains four different plant stem cells that help encourage the cells rejuvenating processes. I love this product because anyone can use it year round (even in the sun!) and it delivers some of the same results as a retinol. As a bonus- it works beautifully as a make-up primer.

I hope you enjoyed reading my favorite things!

What are some of yours?
