The end of last week was a bit of a rough one. There was a flurry of activity at work and although I’m usually a pretty mellow person, I was feeling the stress on Thursday. When I finally left work that day, I felt pretty drained. All I wanted to do was get home and curl up in my bed.
That night, I thought it would be a good time to try out the De-Stress Mi Beauty Essence set that Miyu sent me. I hadn’t heard of this company before they contacted me, but they sent me some really interesting background information about their brand. One thing that really stood out to me is their brand message: “We believe that (1) beauty is a lifestyle, (2) complexions should also be nurtured from within, and (3) the secret to everlasting beauty is happiness.” The De-Stress set is composed of a calming mist and a container of tea. The idea is to pair these two elements together by treating your face with the mist and your body with a calming cup of tea.
So far, I have really enjoyed using these products. When I sprayed the mist on my face it was very cooling and refreshing. Especially with the summer heat, just experiencing that cooling sensation did make me feel a little bit calmer. I’m a big tea drinker and I typically have at least one cup a day. That Thursday I made a cup of this tea and that small ritual of brewing tea was comforting. I thought the tea was very good- it contains a blend of peppermint and chamomile, both flavors that I enjoy. There’s also a hint of peppermint in the spray as well, which I found refreshing.
On a long and stressful day, I think it was necessary to take a little moment to decompress. After testing the mist and sipping on a cup of the tea, I did feel calmer and less anxious. Of course it’s not a magic fix for stress, but I certainly feel that it helped. Also, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the packaging, which is absolutely beautiful. Even my roommate commented on how lovely it is when he saw the containers sitting on my desk. I think this set would make a great gift for a friend or a good ‘treat yo self’ gift.
Tell me: What do you do to relieve stress?
