You know how some people travel the world and stock up on local souvenirs? Me, I forget about the knick-knacks and T-shirts – and head straight to the local pharmacy and supermarket. There, I scout locally-made beauty products, and there are plenty of them to be found around the world. I’ve been doing since the Seventies, when I visited Bermuda and was fascinated – no, make that enthralled – by the local perfume factory.

Since then, I’ve always been on the lookout for beauty products – soaps, serums, dream creams and a lot more — from other countries – I like beauty without borders.

Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting the Trump National Doral in Miami, where I had an exclusive 90-minute Hydrafacial with a special machine, using award-winning Natura Bisse products made in Spain. That’s more than enough to please any globetrotter. It all started in Barcelona in 1979 when Ricardo Fisas and Gloria Vergés founded Natura Bissé with a clear purpose: To take care of people’s skin and their sense of wellbeing at every stage of life.

If you’re visiting Miami, the luxurious Trump Spa and its $375, 90-minute Natura Bisse Hydrafacial should definitely be on your radar screen.

The 48,000-square-foot full-service Trump Spa is a sanctuary all in its own right. Located detached from the resort’s main building, ensuring a tranquil and blissful experience, the Trump Spa delivers a personalized spa journey with a comprehensive treatment menu that includes a wide selection of massages, facials, body treatments, as well as full-service salon and wellness services.

Each treatment begins with a refreshing mist, a healing hot tea and an aromatherapy inhalation to help guests prepare for their posh pampering.

With intentionality at its core, the spa experience focuses on what spa patrons want to achieve — whether the goal is to slow down the pace and reach a deep state of physical and mental relaxation, or simply emerge feeling re-energized and ready to take on the day.

I simply wanted to relax – and let my aesthetician, Veronica, do the work. And do the work she did. In fact, Veronica was a walking encyclopedia of skincare knowledge, and we shared skincare tips and secrets at the end of my silken service.

She used a special Hydrafacial machine. It features four LED lights that kill bacteria and calm redness (with blue lights) and it stimulates circulation (that’s with red lights). First we started with a Natura Bisse cleanser, followed by an exfoliation and extraction. Then Veronica hydrated my skin with a special mix of potent peptides, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid. Then – lets hear it for Jennifer Lopez! – she used the new J.Lo booster which is a special glycopeel, followed by lymphatic drainage of my face.

Lastly, she used what she said was the “Benjamin Butler of eye creams” – the Natura Bisse Diamond extreme eye cream, “which helps to reverse the aging process,” she explained.

She sent me home with trial sizes of Natura Bisse plus special anti-microbial sponges to wash my face with. The final effect was – shall I say – hermosa.
