It’s Me: Renee. September 2014 Edition


Here’s the latest edition of what’s going on in my world. (See my other personal posts.)

OUR NEW RESCUE DOG: My husband and I just rescued our 10th doberman pinscher in 14 years from Doberman Rescue of North Texas. My husband had this breed growing up and turned me on to them 14 years ago. While we were very sad to have lost our big boy, Duke, a month ago, life goes on and there are always more dogs in need of love. Enter Major! He is a such a sweetie pie and is adapting really well to his new forever home. I’m a huge advocate of rescuing dogs rather than getting them from a breeder, so I hope you’ll consider this option when looking for a new furry friend.

BALI, INDONESIA: Yep. That’s a picture of me and my husband just saying hello to a snake on a recent trip to Bali. Yikes! We also did a day trip of riding on Harley’s, which was so much fun. I love having a hobby that my adventurous husband and I can do together that we both equally love. (And yes, I’m a rider. Not a passenger.)

NEW SKIN PRODUCTS I’M WORKING ON: So far this year we have launched three new products (Energizing Cleansing Masque, Vitamin C Eye Brightener and Total Eye Repair Cream) and now our very first skin oil, Pro Remedy Oil. I have used oils in the facial treatment room for years on my clients since they are so reparative to the skins’ moisture barrier. I am excited to share my new professional skin secret. I’m also in the process of reformulating our Purifying Face Wash to make it new and improved and incorporate in some more beneficial brightening ingredients. I absolutely love creating products and working closely with our chemists, so there are always new products in the works. Stay tuned! See a celebrity wearing our Energizing Cleansing Masque.

RENEE ROULEAU SKIN CARE CELEBRATES 18 YEARS: We just celebrated our 18th anniversary, which is so exciting considering many businesses don’t make it past five years. The skin care industry is highly competitive and I know you have so many choices for your skin care products, so I’m truly grateful for the trust you have in me and my company. Thank you. Truly. We are extremely committed to bringing you the most well-formulated, results-oriented, and advanced skin care products and treatments in our skin care spas so you can have healthy, glowing and beautiful skin. Stick with me. We’ll always show you the way.

SUMMER COMPANY GET-TOGETHER: What fun we had at our summer party with our team. Ice cream, contests, games, and more. One of the games we played was to guess how many bottles of Anti Cyst Treatment can you fit in a drum? (See what a drum of Anti Cyst Treatment looks like here). The closest to guess got a prize. It fills 3570.

NEW INSTAGRAM PAGE: While I have my own personal Instagram page for a sneak peek into my private world, we have recently launched an Instagram Renée Rouleau Skin Care page where we share all things skin care. Be sure to check it out for tips, tricks, behind-the-scenes, and more!

LA TRIPS: I travel to Los Angeles every few months to see my celebrity clients and normally I’m so busy working that I don’t have any down time for socializing. On my visit at the end of July, I decided to change that. I rented a beautiful home in West Hollywood and hosted a fabulous dinner party with my favorite people in the beauty business.

It’s so much fun to be around other hard-working beauty professionals that are so incredibly talented. What fun we had!

HARLEY RIDING IN GREECE: There are only nine Harley Davidson motorcycles in the country of Greece and two of my entrepreneur friends and me rented three of them. One of my nieces joined us and we had the most beautiful ride along the coast. See this picture. Riding a motorcycle is so restorative for me. The freedom of the open road and the fresh air truly clears my mind and renews my soul.

NANTUCKET: Time spent with my three best girlfriends by the beach is always fun.

So, that’s what’s on my mind and what I’ve been up to. I hope you had an amazing summer and your skin stayed protected.
