#SELOVES: Prix-Fixe Pampering at Beautylicious
Somewhere between Summerlicious and Winterlicious is Beautylicious, Bloor-Yorkville’s answer to all of your beauty needs. Between October 22nd and November 1st, Yorkville will be host to the only event of its kind in Canada, offering an array of services at $30, $50, $75 and $125.
I recently booked myself an appointment at The Spa at The Windsor Arms Hotel, located at 18 St. Thomas Street. I decided on the $75 offering (a $125 value) featuring a Tangerine Body Wrap with full body exfoliation, mask and wrap. With Toronto Fashion Week kicking off next week, it was the perfect way to relax before the chaos – my calm before the storm.
I love The Spa at The Windsor Arms Hotel. The second you step through the doors, you feel calm and at ease. After a quick tour of the spa (which includes a salt water pool, panoramic outdoor terrace, and even a salt cave), I was changed and ready for my treatment.
The treatment began with a full body exfoliation to slough off the dead skin. For citrus lovers, the smell of the tangerine body scrub is just divine. Once the full body exfoliation is complete, a heated blanket is wrapped around the body to allow the pores to open up. You’re then left to relax for about 20 minutes. The body wrap feels like a warm cocoon, ideal for those chilly autumn days. Once the wrap is complete, you hop in a shower to rinse all of the product off. Finally, a light moisturizer is applied, leaving your entire body smooth and silky. Like most treatments, this one is done almost in the nude (with a disposable thong) and takes about an hour. It is the perfect way to recharge or spend the day with a friend or loved one – did we mention that The Windsor Arms Hotel also offers high tea?
We all need a little TLC from time to time. Whether you want some alone time or a spa day with the girls, thanks to Beautylicious, you can experience hair, spa, skin and health and wellness (for both women and men) at amazing prices. With over 50 participants, it’ll be easy to find something to fit both your budget and your grooming/polishing needs.
