Happy New Year everyone! We started off 2019 with a self care day at the Spa Q located in the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort! 🏨⛱
When we arrived at the spa we were greeted by the lovely Spa Q Director, Marianne, who escorted us through the spa lobby to the women’s locker room to change into our robes before our spa treatments.
Once you step into the spa lobby, you immediately feel relaxed due to it’s serene surroundings and the ability to de-stress on the couch while having a fresh cup of tea.
Our first treatment was their new Peppermint Mocha Scrub. We couldn’t wait to experience this treatment since the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort specifically teamed up with Café Collective, a local co-working coffee shop in downtown Fort Lauderdale, to create this scrub for the Winter season.
The Peppermint Mocha Scrub is all natural and is made with the coffee grounds from the cafe, unsweetened cocoa powder, peppermint pure essential oil and light oil. If you didn’t already know, coffee grounds are a perfect scrub ingredient as they naturally exfoliate dead skin but with less irritation than other exfoliants such as sugar or sand.
As you might have seen on Instagram, we had the chance to take a quick trip to Café Collective in the summer of 2018 and it’s now one of our favorite coffee shops! As part of this partnership, anyone who purchases the Peppermint Mocha Scrub treatment will enjoy a complimentary cup at Café Collective. The scrub treatment is $70 and is offered as an individual treatment or can be added as an enhancement to another spa service.
After a good 25 minutes of sloughing away dead skin cells from head to toe, we went back to the locker room to rinse off the scrub. No body wash was needed so that the oils from the scrub would stay on our now glowing skin. Then it was time to end with a relaxing massage. Big thank you to Leon and Tinde for giving us this best of both worlds therapy that left our body and mind glowing. The detoxification and exfoliation of the signature scrub combined with the healing and de-stressing powers of massage gave us major glow-it and show-it results.✨✨
We made sure to take full advantage of the oceanside views and beautiful weather by the pool and cabanas. With mimosas in hand, we reflected on our highs and lows from 2018 and gushed over the the many things we’re looking forward to sharing this year! Like what you may ask?
Well for starters, if you mention “BRNZ” during the month of January, you can buy one treatment and get 50% off the second at Spa Q! This is perfect for gifting or for a spa day with your bestie.💆🏻♀️💆🏽♀️
