Spa Girl had an amazing Facial

The best way I could think of celebrating the finale of an incredible year was to head back to Sparkling Hill Resort and Wellness Spa for a two day couples get-away. It is divine to have such an exquisite spa so close to home, not to mention located in the spectacular countryside, dotted with lakes and vineyards and punctuated by stunning mountains of Vernon, British Columbia.

Sparkling Hill celebrates whole body health and wellness inside and out. It offers over 100 of some of the best traditional European and transformative spa treatments to restore and revitalize the entire body--so watch out for many more blogs from this heavenly spa. Lead by sensitive professionals who embrace a holistic approach to health and wellness, Sparkling Hill aims to personalize your specific needs and enhance your overall well-being. Once again I left this magnificent resort feeling relaxed, cleansed and with an new sense of vigour!

This time along with a side-by-side couples massage, I enjoyed an amazing facial, while my husband had his first pedicure. He is a runner with runners feet, and his feet have never looked better. I must say, he is a trooper, I once talked him into climbing into an old fashion steam box before diving into a sea weed bath in Ireland, next it will be a facial!

I opted for the Vitamin Enriched Hydra Facial (75 minutes / $155) which is finely tuned with antioxidants providing deep moisturizing benefits which are great for repairing damaged dry skin. While I generally keep out of the sun, my skin is prone to be dry from the arid climate I live in, so this treatment was ideal. The first 15+ minutes of the session was cleansing my face and removing impurities with several wonderful smelling products including a gentle but powerful cleanser enriched with a combination of Rose Hip Seed Oil, Olive Oil Castile, Seaweed, and Oil of Kumquat, all under a temperate plume of steam. Hot towels and free-radical fighting agents of Vitamin C, CoQ10, Red Tea and Vitamin E followed. As usual, I was so relaxed I fell asleep several times and when I left the treatment room I was definitely in a world all of my own, and my face felt fabulous, it was brighter, and had the texture of warm soft butter. Several days later it is still soft and supple--this might be the best facial I have ever had!
