I was thrilled to finally find sometime in my schedule, Friday, to use my SpaFinder gift certificates (a wonderful gift from the Guy), and get some quality R&R in. Since we are in the first days of spring and summer is somewhere around the corner, I thought my face could use a little pampering (scuff off the winter and welcome the bright, sunny spring).
Finding a salon was easy, I had been eyeing MINT ever since we started taking the Dog to Planet Pet on California/Florida/17th and I was thrilled that they accepted SpaFinder gift certificates, so I booked myself the MINT Advanced Firming Facial (yes, a ridiculous 80 min service!!).
What I Loved:
- my Esthetician: she was delightful, funny, and didn't push product on me!
- the products. Mint exclusively uses Alchimie Forever , all natural, Switzerland created. Not only did the products not irritate my skin, they smelled amazing. (Next paycheck, I will be picking up their Exfoliating Facial Scrub!!)
What I Liked:
- the location and facilities. I unfortunately did not take advantage of a pre/post-spa workout, but really enjoyed the space and the great light
What I Would Improve:
- pricing. My 80 min facial was amazing, but I am not sure it was worth the hefty $150 price tag. And there is absolutely no way I could in good conscious work this pampering into my budget (not even twice a year!).
Would I Recommend and Come Back Again?
There you have it! I did discover on my exit that MINT offers a special 30 min massage or facial for $49 every Tuesday. Now, perhaps that is something, I can work into my budget.
