I know, I know....my intentions were to update BeyondBlushing weekly. Hahaha. I laugh. Lofty goals for a Special Education teacher/Case Manager/CoDept Chair/This Team Member/That Team Member/After School Tutor/Breakfast Club Interventionist/Trouble Maker/Peace Maker/etc., etc. --Also, one who admittedly
has major difficulties saying "no" and who has enough work to keep two people busy full time!! I'm trying hard to work on balance so after working VERY long days on a regular basis I've been trying to come home and be "present" with my hubby, fur babies, and human adult babies (when they're home). So here I am, updating....and trying to decide what goodie I want to share with you all! I have a few golden nuggets that I'm excited to write about!!
Probably one of the best days this month was celebrating my daughter's 20th birthday--March 5th!! She was able to take a couple of days off work and come home so we could celebrate her! Yea!! She's majoring in Beauty at FIDM this year and I thought it would only be appropriate to celebrate with a day at the spa! This would be her first real spa day experience so I wanted it to be awesome and wonderful for her....and win win for me!! Fortunately we don't live too far from the amazing Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa. They have an awesome promotion where the cover charge (to utilize their spa amenities and pools) is free ON your birthday!! So, we booked a couple of facials and off we went to experience much of what Glen Ivy has to offer!!
The day was beautiful, high 70s, and being a Monday the grounds were quiet--without too many other spa goers. It was perfect--and I didn't have to hide from too many people prancing around in my bathing suit!! We had planned to stay at the spa for just a few hours. Long enough to enjoy lunch, the Grotto, and some R&R. We knew the highlight of our visit would be our facial spa treatments since we are both excited/interested/slightly obsessed with skincare :) When I was trying to decide from the skincare menu what facial I was going to book, my interest was peaked when I came across "NuFace Quick Lift Microcurrent Facial" Holy moly! no, #HolyMoly !! Okay, wait...disclaimer....I have only had a handful of "professional" facials but in comparing all of them, THIS FACIAL was BOMB! So bomb I had to actually ask to get my phone from my bag so I could take a progress picture. I could literally feel the benefits of this particular facial working INSTANTLY!! I was floored. Shocked. Excited!
The facial started like most typical facials--some calming aroma therapy, deep cleaning, exfoliating, toning, extractions....always awkward...then moisturizing. It was great and I felt good not realizing what magic was just around the corner. My esthetician let me know that she would be starting the NuFace microcurrent session and what I should expect as she applied the topical gel and began the treatment. The attachment that she was using had these two metal spheres that just felt so good, --cool and slick, as the glided across my face.
I could feel certain areas of my skin "tightening" especially around my mouth and brow. When she had completed one side of my face she handed me a mirror so I could compare the two sides of my face. I was dumbfounded! Can y'all see the difference from the left and right side of my face??? The apples of my cheek just look youthful and the lines around my mouth were tightened and lifted. I could not believe how drastic the results were--instantly! Hence, my selfie session for the purposes of needing to blog about this!! The esthetician told me that the results would be instant and would continue to develop over the next 48 hours. She was right and I was instantly coveting this product. She told me I could purchase my own NuFace Facial Toning device from the spa store. My heart was racing at the thought of owning this little piece of heaven....
So, apparently purchasing this amazing NuFace tool at the no-big-deal (haha) price tag of $325 (not including all the attachments that I would want with it) is just slightly out of my budget and I would just have to settle with this amazing experience for now. But seriously, one day I will own this. Santa Baby will come through....lol.
What amazing spa services have you experienced?? Please share with me!! I want to read all about it :)
