Every girl loves a spa day!

That’s why Vanessa Hudgens and celebrity skincare guru Sonya Dakar joined up with nonprofit Wish Upon a Teen to provide a day of pampering and beauty treatments for cancer-stricken teens and their mothers.

“I love kids, and I’ve been able to meet kids who have been dealing with cancer and their parents,” Hudgens told PEOPLE about the Mother’s Day event held at Sonya Dakar’s Beverly Hills clinic. “Just seeing the emotional strain, it’s really nice [that] events are held where the parents and the teens can get together and just relax and be pampered.”

Hudgens added, “It’s a really great opportunity for everyone to hang out and feel like a princess, which is always nice.”

Teens from the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA and their moms enjoyed facials, makeup and lash applications, hair styling and manicures — the latter of which happens to be Hudgens’s personal favorite beauty indulgence.

“I am nail obsessed,” says the actress, currently rocking a white manicure decked out in rhinestones (above). “I can’t not have crazy nails. I’m just addicted.”

Her other beauty addiction? “I’m obsessed with mascaras,” Hudgens admits. “I can’t leave the house without it!”

Currently in her mascara rotation: “Right now I’ve been running around and working out, so I wear Diorshow Waterproof Mascara because it doesn’t run. [I also love] Voluminous by L’Oreal. It’s a great layering mascara.”

While Hudgens says she loves also indulging in the occasional massage, her favorite part about any spa day is just having some quality girl time.

“It’s the best time, when you can put your guard down and not have to any walls up and just be carefree, and have fun and be silly and girly!” she says. And judging by the photos from Dakar’s Twitter feed (below), the teens got to do just that.

Tell us: What’s your favorite beauty pick-me-up?
