An Arctic Berry facial for an Arctic Type of Day

Happy Tuesday!! Today has been a crazy run around day for me and I am looking forward to the end of the day. Who else feels the same way. I think I only sat the whole day when I was driving and my little lunch break (shared on Instagram stories) for about 15 minutes. This preggo mama's feet are DONE! 

A few weeks ago I received a facial from Relax the Spa, called Exotic Arctic Berry Peptide Specialized Facial. Say that ten times Fast! Morgan was my Esthetician and she did such an amazing job explaining all the details to me and what products were being used. 


I am someone who struggles with dry, dull skin in the winter months and pores that want to get larger like my ever growing belly. Not something any of us ladies want to have to deal with. When I booked the facial I really was not sure of the outcome as I had never received this specific facial prior and just sort of picked one that sounded good for my skin. 

The facial on the site is described below: "A deeply oxygenating and brightening treatment ideal for fatigued, pigmented and aging skins.  Complexion will appear completely revitalized and firm while pores become tightened and refined.  Helps with cellular repair and nourishes the skin combining botanical stem cells, hylauronic acid and retinol alternatives."

It left my skin so soft, with color and a glow that even pregnancy could not put forth. The skincare line that Morgan used on me was called Eminence and I really loved it! The last facial I received, the esthetician also used this skin care line and my skin reacted so well to it. Typically any kind of exfoliating peel will burn or irritate my skin, however this one did not. This organic line  is one I would highly recommend. The spa sells it right in house. The prices range on all products with some being pricier than others but you absolutely get what pay for. Plus the skin care line is organic and so natural for you. If you want some more details on this specific line you can read up on it here.


So lets talk oils. I am a BIG, BIG fan of them and use them on my girls or diffuse them almost every night. Relax has their own essential oil blend and I am OBSESSED!!!! The smell is that perfect blend of refreshing lemon, lavender, rosemary and geranium. They have used it every time I have received a service and it just so calm and relaxing to inhale. Hence the name! I always tell myself to buy a bottle when I go and I always forget when I leave. Next visit I am not leaving without that bottle! :)


If you saw my Instagram stories I took a poll to see who would prefer a facial or massage if you had the opportunity to visit the spa. Well I have teamed up with Relax to not only give away a $100 gift card, but also a gift card for a friend! Yes, two $100 giftcards!! How fun would that be to have a girls day out, or a special someone for a couples massage? All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below, or on my facebook page of what service you would choose if you won. Contest ends Friday night at 9pm. Good luck!!
