A Steam and Facial at Alchemie Spa in Santa Monica

The Alchemie Spa in Santa Monica is a wonderful, beautiful new spa to hit the area. When I visited the spa last week, I was thrilled from the moment that I walked in. The space is beautifully decorated in blues and whites, and the all-natural products that they use are featured throughout the entire front room. I liked that immediately – I love to see the natural and eco-friendly ingredients and products right away. It’s exciting to know that you’ll be getting treatments that you know are safe and natural.

This was the first treatment that I’ll be having for the upcoming Spa Week event, and I couldn’t have had a better first treatment for the event, or for my first visit to the spa. I loved Alchemie. I felt so relaxed and comfortable in the space.

I started my day with a private steam, which was a treat all in itself. I had a private room to enjoy a steam in, and after a luxurious thirty minute steam, I simply had to step from the steam booth into the shower, also conveniently and wonderfully in the room with me. It was so nice to be able to have that whole space to myself; it felt like such a luxury, and one that I would love to have regularly.

After the steam, I had an amazing facial from Michelle, one of the great women who work at the spa. This was definitely one of the best facials I have ever had; I loved all of the sweet smelling products that she used– which included a coconut cleanser for massage, strawberry exfoliate, strawberry rubart mask, rose toner, and a firm skin acai moisturizer– and they were all incredible. My skin looked fabulous for days after this facial! During the facial, Michelle was also very  thorough and attentive; she made sure that I had no allergies and that the pressure she used was okay for me, and she gave me fabulous shoulder rub.

It was a great day at the spa; I loved the decor, which was classic and clean with upscale and beautiful touches throughout the entire spa, and the staff was friendly, informative, and experienced. I highly recommend visiting the Alchemie Spa during Spa Week, and many times afterward.
