Want to glow on New Year’s Eve? The Ronit Raphael beauty centers offer a new ‘Active Glow’ treatment with their very own ‘Power Oxy Lift Caviar,’ an anti-aging treatment that adds instant glow while also having long-term benefits. The new Active Glow treatment is constructed of four stages: the first prepares the skin using the oxy-tech technology, that allows the skin to absorb the active ingredients better, the second stage corrects aging signs using IPL light that promotes the production of collagen in the skin, the third stage aims to make skin tone lighter and more even using natural acids, and the fourth is done at home with the brand’s special products, such as serum with vitamin C, correcting mask and clearing gel. The treatment is especially effective for people with sunspots, age spots and dull skin, as well as for those who suffer from couperose and anyone who wants skin to look more even and fresh.

Cookie anyone?

Not only for New Year’s, but always: if you must have something sweet with your coffee, the Lotus cookies are perfect. Lotus cookies has now added new sandwich cookies filled with cream (either vanilla or lotus flavored) that are even more comforting, and they are still vegan. The only problem is that they are gone as soon as you open the package. I wonder why…
