It was an easy “yes please" when I received the invite to come explore and experience the best that Glen Ivy Hot Springs had to offer in celebration of their 155th anniversary! Tucked into the foothills of the Santa Ana mountains, Glen Ivy Hot Springs has long been a family favorite. As a child, I vividly remember spending hours coating my body in the mud baths and relaxing in the natural hot springs and tropical terrain. Even as a young girl at Glen Ivy, I remember the feeling of leaving rested and rejuvenated. Today, Glen Ivy has expanded their repertoire, offering a full menu of massages, facials, body treatments, and nail services alongside their many activities and classes.
I was pleasantly surprised to see the Eco-Luxury brand, Sparitual nail and skincare line, at the spa. The brand graciously gave me a manicure using their new "gold" line of polish Let me tell you… uh-mazing! The saturated colors go on like a dream and last twice as long as standard polish. My nails still look amazing, 5 days after the fact, which is a miracle because I am so hard on my hands. My skin was pampered with a mini-facial using a NuFace device. I had only recently heard of NuFace from a friend who purchased the one at Nordstrom. Using microcurrent technology, the Nuface contracts the muscles in your face giving you a more contoured and youthful look. The crazy thing is that, despite having to rub the activating gel all over your face, the tool totally works! One half of my face was done first and I could see the marked difference immediately. Oh, and the pampering didn't end there! Knowing I had a full day of sun and water ahead of me the lovely rep from Jane Iredale natural makeup applied a natural looking waterproof make up look that gave me a fresh glow. I mean, have you ever been able to come up out of the water with your makeup still in tact? Me neither, I am getting these products STAT!
A restful spa day taking care of the “outside” wouldn't be complete without a healthy meal for the “inside". Award winning Chef, Bill Wavrin, worked diligently to provide a beautiful menu of artfully prepared, healthy, organic eats that can be picked up for breakfast or lunch at the onsight Cafe Sol. Mmmmmm...
Thanks so much for stopping by Of Beauty & Grace! Be sure to check out Glen Ivy's site for their specials happening in celebration of their 155th anniversary. Maybe I will see you there!
