For the past few months I’ve been training hard for the Relay Marathon that I finally ran on October 17th. Running really takes a toll on your body, which is why I was super excited when my friends at Red Door told me that the October service was a body treatment. As an added bonus, I scheduled the treatment on my wedding anniversary, so I could start the day with some relaxation.
I’ve never had a body treatment service before, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. According to the spa, my skin would be polished to perfection with a Pear-infused Brandy and Sea Salt Scrub and then a targeted massage with Marshmallow Shea Butter will moisturize the skin.
Sounds pretty delicious… so let’s SUIT UP!
I’ve had plenty of massages before – and love them – but this was a little different. They provide you with a pair of disposable undies (which is basically the smallest paper thong you can imagine) and you put it on and then get all comfy on the massage bed under a towel. Then, my massage therapist, Tanja, uncovered a body part a time and gently massaged the pear-infused brandy and sea salt scrub onto my body.
It smelled amazing and felt like the perfect combo of scratchy and a massage.
After all my bits and pieces had been covered in sea salt, Tanja switched out the massage bedding while I want to the adjoining shower to wash off. Once I was cleaned off and feeling as soft as a baby’s bottom, I returned to my little cocoon under the covers and Tanja massaged each part of my body with the Marshmallow Shea Butter. It wasn’t a full massage, but just enough to rub the lotion into my skin and feel extra wonderful.
I LOVED this month’s service. It was really relaxing and when I left the spa my skin was so smooth it practically glowed. On my way out I saw a display of the scrub and body butter that was used in the service and was super tempted to by the entire lot to hoard at home!
If you’re looking for an awesome gift for someone special in your life, giving them a container of the pear-infused brandy and sea salt scrub with a note that you’ve booked them the body treatment would be amazing! In fact, I’m going to need to send a ‘hint-hint’ text to my husband…
Have you ever been to a spa to get a body scrub?
