Seattle's Best Spa Escape: Penelope and the Beauty Bar

If you travel often your skin can really take a beating.  Everytime you visit a different climate it can affect the condition of your skin.  The sun is brutal for our complexion but it's so hard to stay out of it.  Especially when on vacation we like to soak up every ray we can.

Recently I was invited to collaborate with Penelope and the Beauty Bar , a luxury spa in downtown Seattle.  I was excited to see how they could help rejuvenate  my sun damaged skin.  The beauty bar located is at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel  in the heart of the city.  Penelope's is the perfect escape while traveling or during a lunch break.  

I highly recommend this beautiful spa and here's why:
A Relaxing Retreat

As soon as you step into the spa you will love the relaxing ambiance.  Pampering is on order from the get go.  It honestly feels like you are on a mini vacation.  All the stress and cares of life seemed to fade away as I sat in the waiting room.

 An Elegant Space

Special care has been taken to make the atmosphere very inviting.  All the rooms are beautifully decorated.  The waiting room was pure delight. The white decor mixed with dark accents adds drama, you feel like a pampered princess.  Enjoy a cup of tea or fresh water while you wait for your service to start.

Unique Treatments

If you have a difficult situtaion with your skin, no worries! Every treatment here is tailored to fit your individual needs.  There are even acne facial treatments for teens or anyone who battles break outs.

The spa gracioiulsy offered any of their spa services to me for review.  I chose the extreme 90  hydrafacial anti aging treatment for mature skin.  There is also a shorter version of this facial you can have done at lunchtime.  The 90 minute treatment includes micro current treament, exfoliation, deep cleaining and LED red light.  The menu of facial treatments are endless.  Check them all out here.

Fabulous Estheticians & Staff

Everyone at the spa was is so friendly and attentive.  From the moment you walk in the door until you leave, you will be treated with the best of care.  Angelina the esthetician was amazing!  She explained everything she did to my skin in great detail.

It was my first time to visit the spa so I was a little anxious and didn't know what to expect.  Angelina took great care of me. When I inquired about all the products used on my face, she took  time to describe each one.

 Most Advanced Skin Treatments Available

My skin felt fresh and brand new when the treatment was finished.  Before I went in, my skin looked dull, dry and lifeless.  It was great to see and feel the glow again.  The finest high ingredient products and state of the art procedures are used for each service.

The reasons to love this luxury spa are endless.  Find recent testimonials here.  Penelope and the Beauty Bar is a first choice for many clients in the Seattle area.  In addition to facials, the spa menu offers many other services to pamper yourself.  Combined hotel and spa packages are also available for a stay at the Fairmont.  Check me in!
