When you get asked if you would like to receive some spa treatments of your choice, you grab your diary and schedule some “me time” as soon as you can. And that’s exactly what I did when Renew Luxury Spa in Sandton contacted me.
I arrived to a very warm welcome and a much needed strong cappuccino. After filling in my client card (something I was so happy to see as so many spa’s don’t prioritise these), my therapist, Laverne, showed me to the therapy room where I was about to unwind for the next couple of hours.
My first treatment was a full body massage which I cannot describe to you how desperately I needed. Laverne has magical hands: the most perfect pressure and her massage techniques released all the tension that my body was holding onto while simultaneously lulling me into a deep state of relaxation.
Next on the agenda was a much needed facial. I knew without a doubt that I would need an extremely hydrating treatment. My skin always takes a beating during winter and this year was no exception. Laverne decided that the Thalgo Skin Solutions facial would be a perfect fit for me. Thalgo is a brand that I have spoken about a fair amount, you can find out more about them over here if you would like to.
My facial treatment was absolutely sublime and my skin was plumped out, hydrated and dewy afterwards, which let’s be honest, is exactly what I was after.
Over and above Thalgo and Filorga skin treatments and massage therapies, Renew also offers manicures, pedicures, hair removal, spa packages as well as hair and colour treatments. Everything you could need in one spot – what a pleasure! There is also complimentary WiFi and as many cappuccino’s as you need which goes a long way in this caffeine addict’s books.
If you’re based in Johannesburg and are on the quest for some R & R, I would suggest that you make an appointment at Renew ASAP, you can visit their website over here. They have some great September specials on at the moment as well:
