SPA by JW experience

I was curious to try this relatively new spa that is in the JW Marriott hotel in downtown Austin on my staycation. The spa is minimally designed with a reception that also goes straight to the rooftop pool and bar. When I arrived I signed a form letting them know my reasons for visiting and specifically areas I wanted them to focus on. I got a classic massage and a rejuvenating facial. The products that they used for my facial were Skin Ceuticals.

First, they used the Simply Clean Gel followed by the Equalizing toner. The main 2 treatments that they used on me was a gylcolic peel and a vitamin C mask. These two in combination brightened and exfoliated excellently. She then used a B5 gel and a CE ferulic serum.

The moisturized that she selected for my combination skin type was the Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2. The ingredients are 2% pure ceramides 1&3, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids. This is an anti-aging powerhouse formula but comes with a pretty hefty price tag of $128 for 1.6 fl oz. Of all they used during the facial, I would probably buy the B5 gel and CE ferulic serum. Overall, my experience was positive.
