I'm all about pampering myself and one of my favorite treats to myself is a spa day. It's my favorite place to unwind, detox and just focus on only myself even if it's for a few hours. Recently  I took at trip to the OC to pay Kate Hancock and her amazing staff at the OC Facial Care Center a visit for a luxurious treatment featuring high-grade, exclusive skin-refining products. Not only did I receive my most amazing facial ever but Kate was kind enough to let me pick her brain and she even dropped a few skincare gems. Check the deets below
