Shannon Smyth: Shannon launched A Girl’s Gotta Spa! ® in 2005 to give women (mainly moms) straightforward reviews when they are short on time or simply hiding in the bathroom for some sanity. Shannon loves bath and body products and a good hair cut (especially if it can make her look younger.) Shannon firmly believes that You Deserve to Be Pampered and launched a bespoke cruelty free natural bath and body line to promote this mission. Check it out at www.agirlsgottaspa.com/store

Gail Lewis: As an advocate of natural beauty, Gail believes that beauty begins with a great skin, healthy shiny hair and full, natural brows (well-groomed of course.) She is always on the quest for the supplements, products or spa treatments that will help to achieve all three. As a working model Gail is constantly subjected to her fair share of primping and grooming and as a result prefers a less is more approach to beauty. She should also mention that she has a serious addiction to lip balms, conditioners and glosses…and maybe lip scrubs too! Gail spends her time in Minneapolis, Minnesota (and often traveling the world) as the Buyer/Retail & Marketing Manager for Russell and Hazel. Tweet her @GailSLewis
Candyce Ross: Candyce is passionate about maintaining a healthy lifestyle in between the hustle and bustle that comes with living and working in the city. She was born in South Africa, has lived in Australia and Canada and has a serious case of the travel bug. These experiences have shaped her outlook on health and wellness in unique ways. Candyce loves yoga and pilates, is slightly obsessed with everything coconut and can’t start or end the day without a warm, oil infused bath and a cup of herbal tea.
