On Wednesday, April 11th, guests celebrated the 16th season of Spa Week at the Spa Week Media Party, held at The Alman Building at 135 West 18th Street. From April 16th - 22nd, hundreds of spas, yoga and pilates studios, fitness centers and other health and wellness practices will offer up to three signature treatments for just $50 each. You can book see participating spas/services at SpaWeek.com.
Spa Week is the perfect time to try out a new spa/service or make an appointment with your favorite spa and treat yourself to that well deserved massage or facial.
During the media party, I visited with Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spas, who were offering hand massages and Satin Smooth SmoothSculpt demonstrations - a skin rejuvenating process that removes cellulite, reduces wrinkles and releases built-up toxins.
During Spa Week, Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spas will be offering the Spa Week Stress Melter Body Treatment (50 minutes) which includes a deep body exfoliation, relaxing aromatherapy body wrap and pressure point scalp massage. Also offered is The Spa Week Facial (50 minutes). The Diamond Tip & Organic Flower Peel Microdermabrasion or Oxygen Blast can be added to the facial for an additional $50 ($85 value). The last treatment offered is the Spa Week Magnolia Pedicure (60 minutes).
The five-star Red Door Spa Flagship has relocated to a new state-of-the-art facility at 663 Fifth Avenue. Schedule a treatment and check it out!
Spa Week's Exclusive Cosmetic Sponsor, Christopher Drummond Beauty, provided makeovers. Christopher Drummond Beauty offers natural, organic based and vegan products. I can't wait to try some of their products, including the Duo Phase Concealer, Veludo Velvet Foundation, Finale Finishing Powder and Saude Pele Radiance Booster.
The Exclusive Book Sponsor is Where We Belong by Emily Giffin. Emily is known for her first novel, Something Borrowed, which had sold three million copies and was adapted to a major motion film starring Kate Hudson. Attendees were able get an autographed copy of Giffin's new book, while enjoying hand massages.
