So you'll never guess where I spent two blissful hours today....
Yes, I was lucky enough to be invited as a guest of
to experience their pampering,
which I have to say is absolutely first class all the way.
Let's take a look shall we?....
First up is the reception area,
where I was greeted by the friendliest staff I think I've ever come across.
And here's the lovely area that I was escorted to upon arrival.
Yes, that's a pot of soothing herbal tea for guests to enjoy while filling out their details
and answering a quick questionnaire about their skin.
There were lots of gorgeous products on display
including emerginC, O Cosmedics and Sircuit Skin Cosmeceuticals.
Some of the current specials offer makeup application after your facial.
What a fabulous idea...no more walking out of a treatment with a makeup less face!
And here's where you'd be sitting if you choose that particular package....
Or perhaps you'd prefer to visit their hair salon,
featuring one magnificent view....
But back to my amazing treatment.
After I'd filled out my questionnaire, I was taken to the changing room
where a robe and slippers were waiting....
All ready to go...
I then made my way to
The Tranquility Room,
which despite the poor quality of this photo, really is very tranquil.
After relaxing with a refreshing water and a bowl of healthy almonds and apricots,
I was greeted by Laura who was to be my therapist for my visit.
Laura, like all the staff at the salon, was impeccably groomed, very well spoken and extremely friendly. And she didn't bat an eyelid when she had to look at my old lady, skin damaged, wrinkle ridden skin...probably because she used this fancy machine which took a picture of my face and then determined all sorts of amazing things such as the texture, redness, pigmentation levels of my skin.
Laura spoke to me at length about my skin, which I found really informative,
and based my facial around the skin analysis (very clever!)
So then it was into the treatment room for what can only be described as
The Best Facial Ever.
Not even kidding.
I knew we were off to a good start when things involved a floral foot soak
and a lemongrass infused foot exfoliation.
From there I enjoyed a back and shoulder massage
followed by the most amazing facial I've ever had.
Not only was my skin cleansed, exfoliated & hydrated
but my hands also enjoyed a paraffin treatment
while my scalp had one incredible massage.
After two blissful hours of pampering
I was guided back to The Tranquility Room
where Laura thoughtfully provided me with a complete Skin Prescription Form,
which outlined the various products that would be best suited for my skin.
I was then provided with a coffee (yes, they've thought of everything!)
and wondering how on earth I was going to muster the energy to get in the car and pick up the kids.
If you live in Brisbane, or are planning a holiday to Brisbane anytime soon,
the Harbour Day Spa absolutely needs to be on your 'to-do' list.
They also have a salon on the Gold Coast
and both salons currently have a number of specials on offer.
Personally, I think know what I'll be asking for this Mothers Day!
Thank you so much to the wonderful staff at Harbour Day Spa for inviting me to their salon.
