Every woman…once in your life at LEAST… should splurge on a day at the Spa.
Courtney set up a day for us (Tosha too!) to go have a Luxurious Day at the Spa. It was amazing. I’ve never been so pampered in my entire life. It was delightful. I felt completely blessed to be able to do such a thing.
Courtney did a little different package than we did, so the only bummer of the day was that we weren’t always on the same schedule as she was, but we still saw her throughout the day and you don’t get to spend the whole time together anyway…it’s probably a good thing we weren’t in the same room the entire day~ the staff would have been a little overwhelmed. They were already shaking their heads, laughing at Tosha and me.
The lady who did my nails said we were very entertaining.
I’m not exactly sure how to take that.
Everyone treated us like princesses. I’m still basking in the glow today.
Here are the wonderful treatments we experienced:
Hour long pedicure~ while eating a delicious lunch…
Hour long exfoliating skin treatment with massage~ so relaxing!
Hour long facial~ oh yes.
Light makeup application~ nice, light products, except for the mascara that I’m still trying to wash off…
Deep conditioning hair treatment~ this was SO good. My hair was extremely dry. It now feels silky, which is really hard to accomplish on my particular head of hair.
My favorite part of the day was the facial. Now, facials are not exactly the most relaxing thing you can do if you have a lot of extraction to be done. Extraction is just a nice way of saying that they’re going to pinch the guts right out of your blackheads. NOT super pleasant…but, oh so worth it.
My face feels as soft as a baby’s bum, give or take a few little bumps (OK, zits) that are still hanging on for dear life. It’s the one procedure that I think I’m going to try to make SURE I save money and time to have done again…hopefully on a somewhat regular basis.
A little later…
OK, so the bumps have increased on my face, along with a tiny bit of itchiness on my forehead. I’m wondering if it was the facial itself or if the products I bought are causing some sort of reaction. Sigh. Oh, that’s right…THIS is why I don’t do facials all the time. I forgot about how sensitive my skin can be.
Hopefully, it’s just the facial doing its work and flushing out the gross stuff…otherwise, the hunt for a face cleansing system that works will continue. Ugh. I cannot tell you how many products I have bought over the years that haven’t worked. At least this I can return if I have to…
Truly, though…even if this doesn’t go away immediately, it was still worth it. The day was that good. I highly recommend it.
Anyone have any good skin tips for sensitive skin?
