Last week I was lucky enough to try out the fabulous Penelope and the Beauty Bar spa here in Seattle. I'd like to say I'm great as self-care, but sometimes life gets busy and I don't take enough time for myself. This is why I was so excited when they reached out to have me try a spa package! I choose the renew package which was a soothing body wrap followed by a European facial. The spa is located in the same building as the historic Fairmont Hotel in downtown Seattle. It even has that old world charm with sparkling chandeliers and warm lighting. You instantly relax the minute you walk in.
I choose the detoxifying wrap which was a bit different than I thought, but I'm so happy I did it. You lay down in an infrared body wrap that intensifies with heat every 10 minutes. It's about 45 minutes long, but it actually went by fast. You can take a little snooze or I chatted with my technician for about 30 minutes to help the time go by. They come and check on you every 10 minutes to give you water and make sure the heat is okay. The next day I felt slimmer and my pants fit looser! My skin also felt tighter and more refreshed!
The facial was just what I needed as my skin felt dry and dull from my recent trip on the airplane and traveling. Afterward, my skin was glowing and she got out all the imperfections and blackheads that had been looming. She even told me I had the elasticity of a 20-year-old (thank you Angelina!). She sent me home with samples of most everything she used so I could try them at home myself. Almost a week later my skin feels refreshed and still has a glow!
