As this is my first post, I would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR VISITING MY PAGE! This is honestly a big step for me because I am such an extreme introvert and I have been finally trying to get up the courage to create the platform I’ve always wanted to, and well….WE’RE HERE! So, I want to keep it short by just saying I want you to enjoy the reads, any feedback I am more than open to taking (that is nice!), and lets grow together loves.
Who doesn’t love a free facial?
I had the luxury of winning an Instagram giveaway, because lord knows I was in dire need of it, and I won a 30-minute microdermabrasion facial from Cru Day Spa Sugar land, Texas. Needless to say I was extremely excited, so I immediately made sure to schedule my appointment because this bipolar Houston weather was taking a toll on my skin. A lovely young lady by the name of Polly(lord i hope i spelled it right, hey girl!) who is their creative director helped schedule my appointment and get me in for my facial the very next day.
First impressions are everything honey!
As soon as I arrived to the day spa I was greeted by welcoming receptionist and the creative director Polly whom then walked me back to there tranquility room. The room was simple, but cute and elegant with monochromatic neutral colors as the theme and splashes of gold here and there.
Now to the good stuff…
After I was in the tranquility room for only a few minutes I was greeted by my friendly esthetician Claudy, and was guided to a changing room to remove my clothes and put on the robe and slippers they provide for customers. They also provide lockers which is excellent! The changing room was simple and chic like the tranquility room with a wall full of robes and perpendicular to that, a wall full of dark wooded lockers.
After changing I went back to the tranquility room where I was greeted again by my esthetician and followed her to the room for the procedure. The room also continued with their simple and chic theme with simple white bedding, soothing music, and a BOMB FACE STEAMER, ok? Let me just say as soon as i laid on the bed under that plush white blanket and she put the steamer on my face, I was in heaven!
With the steamer still on my face, the esthetician immediately started the facial. She first started off with a facial cleanser, wiped my face smoothly with a hot towel, and went into exfoliating with this wonderful blueberry exfoliant. After the esthetician was done with the blueberry exfoliant and wiped it off once again with a new hot towel, she started the actual microdermabrasion process. Now I must say, I love that they use a diamond tip microdermabrasion instead of the crystal tip. If you are anything like me, I have tried the crystal tip before and it was so painful. My skin is extremely sensitive and I find that the crystal tip just gives me a scraping feeling that makes my eyes continuously water. The diamond tip went across my face extremely smooth but also got the job done, needless to say…i loved it! When she was all done with the microdermabrasion she then went in to give me an AWESOME face massage. I never had a face massage that felt so good, and I definitely did not want it to stop. The esthetician then ended the facial with a cooling and refreshing face mask and used cold jade rollers on my face to help with blood circulation, skin tone, and also tightening my pores. And, with some smooth under eye cream, toner sprayed, and anti-aging moisturizer applied, the facial was over.
My over all thoughts
I really enjoyed my time at Cru Day Spa and Claudy did a great job. The microdermabrasion facial definitely made a difference with my skin as I was for sure glowing afterwards. Not to mention the esthetician did everything so fluently and all of the workers were very welcoming. The plus for me is that Cru Day Spa is only ten minutes from my house so I will definitely find myself going back to visit one day soon. I definitely think if you are looking to get a last-minute facial done, but want it to be worth the price that Cru Day Spa is a good choice, and it helps that their prices are very affordable.
Did I mention that the products they use are there very own organically made products and they all worked great! They also sell their line if you would like to purchase anything they used on your face.
