Glam caught up with Decléor‘s National Training Manager, Shannon Gallogly, as she hit the road to train the freshest batch of skincare savants and treat a few to a little pampering. Here, she shares her schedule and her love for her puppy, Bella:

6:00AM Rise and shine! Woke up to Bella my 2 year-old beautiful Beagle licking my face for her daily walk…when I am home that is. This morning I happened to be. I threw on sneakers and clothes and took the long walk because Bella wants to. Coffee is on!
7:00AM Opened the computer and went through all my emails from last night and this morning. Snacked on banana and bagel with Nutella; I’m addicted! Then I prepped my bags for the three-day journey of the week.
8:00AM Took a quick shower and started my beauty routine that sets me up for the success of what the day will bring; my mom has always said, “Shannon, you might not feel your best however never let them see that put your best face forward.” I love hot rollers! Set my head and then moved onto the face! Decléor Aromessence serums they are a must and have been for the last 10 years for me. My go-to primer before all the other stuff! It has set me emotionally and physically into a good place with the amazing Aromatherapy benefits that come from the moment I open the bottle. I followed next with a new product to my line up! The Aroma White C+ Anti- Dark Circle Multi- Brightening Eye Care is essential when you are taking plans, trains, etc. I then headed to the Aroma White C + Intense Translucency Fluid, which gives me the radiance and illumination I need to start the day. Today I wanted a lighter fresher look so I choose the new Hydra Floral BB Cream 24-Hour Moisture Activator. I love BB creams; they give me everything! If I want to layer I just go to a powder over it poof flawless. Finally, brows, blush, eyes, lips let’s go!
9:15AM Made a few calls to my freelance team, reviewed the upcoming training schedule and agenda. Ordered the materials from the head office.
11:00AM Finished up in my home office! Grabbed my snack bag and water, travel mug, and headed to the car on a gorgeous sunny day! Sunroof was open today!
11:15-1:15PM Rhode Island to Cape Cod MA for a face and body demo for a potential client. Two hours in the car listening to my Sirius XM radio, can’t live without it.

1:30PM Grabbed lunch quick form my bag and refueled up before I go in and work my magic!
1:45PM Met with the owner Vera of the Bellezza Day Spa and Salon in Falmouth, MA.
2:00PM Set up the products and bed to perform two of our services from our treatment menu- first the Silhouette Aroma- Body Wrap followed by our Aroma Expert- Soothing facial.
2:30PM My beautiful model Erin got onto the bed and was so excited to have a treatment to ease her body and mind back into working out and going to the gym.
3:30PM One treatment down, one more to go. Erin commented on how amazing her body feels, “Smooth, refreshed and my pants even feel looser.”
3:45PM Now for the facial portion with our second model Jody, who has very red and dehydrated skin. I chose Aromessence Rose & Balm to create a layer of softness and protection, then the Aroma Expert Sooth mask.
5:30PM Treatment completed and clean up begun, I spoke with the owner about the offering and timeline.
5:45PM Packed up the car and headed to my next destination- Stamford, CT.
7:00PM Met my Monkey for dinner at Texas Roadhouse – Kissed and got back into the car.
9:00 PM Arrived at the hotel to check into my room.
9:15PM Checked e-mails and slipped into my comfy clothes — now to the most important my nighttime ritual of prepping my skin! Started with my Aroma White C+ Cleansing Oil- it melts the stresses of the day right down the skin leaving me supple and clean. Next I applied my Aroma White C+ Anti- Dark Circle Multi- Brightening Eye Care Wait for it the Balm is next – Aroma Night Neroli Essential Balm – I warmed it up in my hands and bath my skin in its protection and comfort. I loved that it has treatment and protection all wrapped into one.
10:00PM Texted my loves good night – [it’s always] laters, never goodbye. Off to slumber I go and onto the next chapter in my journey.
