At the Spa Week Media Party, I got to check out the latest spa week sponsors, sample spa services and gear up for the week long spa week, in which consumers can receive $50 spa treatments from participating spas. October 12th-18th marks the 11th edition of Spa Week for New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Denver Detroit, Florida, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Houston, Atlanta, San Antonio, Virginia Beach, Connecticut, Nashville, Austin, Dallas, North Carolina and Toronto, Canada. West Coast Spa Week took place on September 14th-20th, including Arizona, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Las Vegas and Chicago.

During the media party I received a makeover from 2009 title sponsor jane iredale. I’ve received makeovers from jane iredale before and they never disappoint, whether I am looking for a dramatic eye for a night out or just a natural glow for the office. I was introduced to new fall colors Silver Lining eyeshadow and Hazelnut lip gloss.

I also received a massage from Elizabeth Arden red door spas, which really relaxed my neck, shoulders and back. Next I received an eyebrow shaping from Spa Chicks on the Go and then ended my night of spa services with an amazing scalp massage at Caudalie Paris. I haven’t been yet, but I will definitely have to check out the Caudalie Vinotherapie SPA at The Plaza. Feline Day Spa and Homme Spa were also on hand offering complimentary spa services.

One of my close friends is getting married in May, so I was sure to pick up some beauty stats from that I’m sure she’ll find interesting. Pevonia Botanica is the Exclusive Skin Care Sponsor. They were offering hand massages but were all booked, so I opted for a skin care analysis and was happy to hear that I have healthy skin of a 20-year old. The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa is the Exclusive Destination Sponsor, Rioja the Exclusive Wine Sponsor and Allure Magazine the Exclusive National Media Sponsor.

Upon leaving, I was happy to receive my Spa Week swag bag, filled with tons of beauty and skincare products including Dr. Michelle Copeland’s rewind revitalizing shampoo, DS Laboratories Nia helio hydrating shampoo and conditioner, Redken thermal resist, Ecru silk nourishing spray, Ole Henriksen perfecting mask and natural hair hydrator, Herban Essentials orange towelettes, Nad’s facial wax strips, Jane Iredale eye highlighter, Pevonia spa-at-home essentials kit and more!
