Just when we have started to recover from the holiday gift-giving rush, another special occasion is quickly closing in: Valentine’s Day! While chocolates are certainly nice, why not get your significant other a little pampering this year? I asked the women of Spa One at The Plastic Surgery Group for their top picks for Valentine’s Day this year. Here’s what they said:
Alex, Spa One coordinator: In the cold winter, we all need a little glow! Our airbrush spray tan is so natural looking and skin-friendly. It’s a perfect pick-me-up. (Airbrush spray tan, $30-$60)
Marika, esthetician: SkinCeuticals® Phloretin CF is one of my favorite products. It’s like a glass of OJ for your skin. Phloretin shields skin from damaging free radicals as it restores a more radiant, even complexion. Great for your significant other and a must-have for everyone. (SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF, $155)
Amanda, certified Xtreme Lashes® stylist, makeup artist: False but natural-looking lashes are what’s in. We all want them, so to receive them as a gift is even better! (Xtreme Lashes Full Set $360, Natural Set $180)
Vanessa, certified Xtreme Lashes® stylist, makeup artist: We all love makeup, but a lot of us struggle with how and where to apply the products when there are so many (i.e. primer, foundation, loose/pressed powder). Give the gift of a makeup lesson. We go step-by-step through the how-tos of getting the look you want. (Makeup lesson at Spa One, $70)
Joni, massage therapist: Come see me for the massage of their choice! Massage therapy has so many benefits from relaxation to helping muscle aches and de-stressing. Perfect for your guy or gal! (Massage therapy, prices available here)
Christine, esthetician: Need a gift idea? Through the month of February, purchase any 2 of the same service and receive the third for half the price! It’s an irresistible discount that doesn’t come around often, so don’t miss out.
Ruth, esthetician: Let your significant other choose! Come in for a gift card that doesn’t expire and can be used on services like laser hair removal and energy treatments or on our wide variety of products. That way, they can try a little of everything.
