It’s baaaaaaaaack! $50 spa treatments are headed your way during the Fall edition of Spa Week!
From October 15th-October 21st 2012, hundreds of spas will offer up to three signature treatments for $50 each! And I’m not talking itty-bitty no name spas. Spa Week partners with some of the most prestigious names in the spa industry to bring you the most current treatments at a fraction of the cost.
Why? Because every single woman deserves to get her spa on regardless of her income!
This past weekend I was able to get an exclusive preview of two $50 Spa Week treatments being offered at Oasis Spa at Hopewell in Pennington, NJ. Located on the first level of Capital Health Medical Center, this full service and welcoming spa offers massages, facials, peels, body treatments, hairstyling, waxing and more!
When I arrived I was immediately welcomed with smiles, which was a wonderful treat.
Their uber friendly receptionist Rolanda can attest that I walked in a hot mess, but left looking and feeling like a new woman after getting my Oasis Spa on!
First up was a 50-minute Swedish Massage complete with a Eucalyptus Foot Scrub. This classic full-body massage had me completely relaxed from head to toe within a matter of minutes. Its long flowing strokes relieved all of my muscle tension and left me feeling like I could take on the world.
As I inhaled the scented oils my massage therapist used, I was whisked off to a place where paying my bills on a single income and juggling all my responsibilities as a single mom were not even an issue.
It was pure bliss.
And when my feet were uncovered, slathered and massaged during the soothing Eucalyptus scrub at the end of my treatment, I’m pretty sure I heard them SQUEE with delight.
I’m going to be honest; I may have fallen a little in love with my massage therapist Marketta that day for giving my body the gift of a full 50 minutes of pampering.
Next up was a 45-minute Refresh Facial with a Peel and Collagen Masque.
Facials are one of my favorite ways to relax. For me it’s more about the scents and the sensations that mellow me out during a facial than what it actually does for my skin.
The Refresh Facial at Oasis Spa was by far my favorite facial I have ever received anywhere. There was no poking or prodding of my skin like I’ve sometimes experienced elsewhere and for the first time ever I actually saw an immediate difference in my skin.
I’d never had a chemical peel before so I was a little anxious about how my often sensitive skin would react to it. In fact, the minute I heard the word peel I thought of Samantha’s mishap during an episode of Sex and the City, and envisioned myself having to purchase a veil to wear out later that day for drinks with my girlfriends.
THAT would be my luck.
But my skin care specialist Liz was super sweet and assured me she’d take things slow since I was a virgin. She watched my skin carefully as she put the peel on and made sure to check in with me every minute or so as to how I was feeling. Turns out the peel wasn’t really that uncomfortable and doesn’t actually involve ripping a layer of your skin off.
On a scale of 1-10, my discomfort level was at a 3 during the entire process.
It didn’t burn or leave me with redness or boils. It actually made my skin glow!
And the Collagen Masque she placed on my face afterwards… AMAZEBALLS!
If you’re in New Jersey or are in the Tri-State area and willing to travel for kickass staff and spa treatments, I highly recommend visiting Oasis Spa at Hopewell.
