Exceptional Spas Offering Essentiel
If there’s one indulgence I’ll choose above all others, it’s getting pampered at an exceptional spa ? I LOVE getting my body massaged, face nourished, senses indulged, and my entire wellbeing reset. A truly great spa is a place where both the skin and soul are rejuvenated!
When creating Essentiel, I wanted the experience to be similarly indulgent, uplifting yet relaxing, with a blend of essential oils that smelled clean, intoxicating, and spa-like.
Some of the most special spas I’ve been to now carry Essentiel. I’m honored by these partnerships and strongly encourage you to visit if given the opportunity. They are all incredible!
Here is a spotlight on a few of my favorites…
Big Sur CA is without question one of the most beautiful places on the planet. The coastline is absolutely stunning and so is the spa at Post Ranch. The next time you’re planning a special getaway, it does not get more magical than this spot!
This special spot is especially dear to my heart since it’s located in my hometown of New Orleans. They offer everything from the best haircare in the city, to facials, nails, waxing, and makeup. All done in a luxurious environment with a wonderful welcoming hospitality you only find in the South.
I generally opt for massages over facials since I’ve often found face treatments to leave me feeling underwhelmed. But not here! Mary Loveland is the founder of Tiburon Spa and gave me THE best facial of my life. Next time you’re in the Bay Area, be sure you make an appointment with this master aesthetician. You will thank me!
This partnership is especially exciting to me since it’s all about pampering your paws and was founded by master manicurist, Michelle Saunders – a dear friend and colleague I’ve known and admired for years. Michelle has worked on countless celebrities and major ad campaigns. She’s painted my nails more times than I can count, and her nail art still accounts for some of my favorite looks, including this fabulous houndstooth design from an Essie ad.
Not only will you get the best mani-pedi of your life, but the chic and serene environment will also make you feel like you’re indeed at a nail spa.
Luz Lounge was Essentiel’s very first partner and we’re proud to continue growing with this special spa. Located on the exclusive Montana Avenue, in the heart of Santa Monica, Luz offers everything from facials, teeth whitening, Vitamin IV therapy, Coolsculpting, laser hair removal, and injectables. You’ll love Patty the owner, the warm staff, and the cozy-chic environment.
One of Brentwood California’s greatest gems is Bradley Beauty, a relaxing and beautiful oasis that offers micro-blading by the best in the biz and exceptional facials. Oh, and great gifts including your favorite lotion love potion!
If you ever wish to visit beautiful Santa Monica in a stunning beach-front spot, book a reservation (or room) at Shutters! Best brunch, great bars, beautiful rooms and a gorgeous gift shop where you can stock up on your favorite moisturizer.
I am truly grateful to all of these incredible partnerships for their commitment to self-care…and great skin care 😉
