A Day at the Spa..... ahhhh

Monday, April 1, 2013

Every mommy needs a little time to unwind and recharge every once in a while.  So today, i indulged in a spa day at the amazing Depasquale Day Spa in Morris Plains NJ!  I've been a client there for many years but don't get to go nearly as often as I'd like.  For today's experience, i opted for the Pure Indulgence Package consisting of a European full body massage with steam, a Deep Cleansing facial (i upgraded to an Age Defying facial and LOVED IT), followed by a manicure.  I've been to many spas, but this one in particular really offers a true spa experience.  It's beautifully decorated and has a wonderfully serene ambiance... as a good spa should!  They have the BEST relaxation room to enjoy between treatments.  They serve yummy bagels, muffins and fresh fruits at breakfast.  During lunch they have a spread of finger sandwiches and wraps.  I indulged in several glasses of cucumber water... delish and so refreshing!  Another super perk to this spa is their awesome cappuccino bar at your disposal!  


My massage was the first treatment of the day.  It was sooooo relaxing!  The massage therapist used the perfect amount of pressure and focused on all the areas that needed a little extra TLC.  After the massage, i was brought into the facial room.  The bed was heated and kept my legs slightly elevated.  I opted to upgrade my facial to an Age-Defying facial and I'm so glad that i did!  I will never have a regular facial again at Depasquale!  This one was just on another level!  The papaya enzyme mask used was so cooling and soothing on my skin.  My skin felt soooo good!  Lastly, for my manicure, i was thrilled with their vast array of OPI polish selections, including the 'Oz' collection!  I opted for a pale nude polish with a sparkly gold ring finger accent!  

Overall, i am never disappointed with my treatments at Depasquale.  The only downfall for me is the distance.  It's about an hour away from my house which is disappointing... however, the fact that The Mall at Short Hills is on the path to and from the spa more then makes up for it!  I may or may not have done some damage there today... you'll have to wait and see!  

Thank you Depasquale for pampering me today... and THANK YOU my wonderful readers for sharing this experience with me! xoxo Carla - FMM
