Beauty {Urbaca}

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

As I mentioned earlier this week, I had the great pleasure of experiencing a blow-out and and makeup application with Caitlyn at Urbaca.  While she had be dolled up and ready to hit the town, I also had the opportunity to experience one of the most tranquil and rejuvenating spa treatments I have ever had.  

Several weeks ago, I was able to  experience the hydrating facial.  Sherry, the Spa Director and asthetician, has such a lovely energy.  A key factor for any successful beauty treatment, in my opinion.  She radiates happiness, while calmness beams out of her. Again, I felt instantly felt comfortable in her hands.

Sherry took her time assessing my skin through each step.  My face was steamed, extracted, exfoliated, toned and moisturized.  She used both SkinCeuticals and Okamura Farmacopia Products- all of which had the most pleasant and subtle scents.  And even better, none of them irritated my skin or caused post-facial breakouts later that week.

As an extra-special element, the treatment included a shoulder and arm massage.  These happen to be the areas of my body that carry a lot of my stress and kinks.  It was the perfect way to wind down and become even more relaxed.  

Finally, the facial concluded with Chakra Balancing.  I've never had my Chakra's balanced, let alone, had it incorporated into a spa treatment.  While I have no idea how to explain what happened, I can tell you that I really enjoyed it!  After the treatment ended, Sherry walked me through the energy reading and what that meant in regards to my relationships with friends, family and the opposite sex.  It was all so incredibly insightful!  I truly felt as though I had meditated.  

That night, I had such a restful sleep.  I actually use the app Sleep Cycle to track my sleep and was almost at 90%.  Something I rarely, if ever, accomplish!

Whether your skin needs a little extra TLC, its time for some pampering, or, you are looking for the perfect gift for a friend who has everything, I highly recommend the skin services at Urbaca Salon!

While these services were complimentary, I was not required to write about the experience.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.


  1. I'm usually not one for facials, but this looks great!
