To test this “too good to be true” type of deal, I thought it would be only fair to try it out and see if a Spa Week deal is truly worth your time and money. (You’re welcome!) The Spa 25 in Selden, NY –it was a random selection and somewhere I have never been before. I was given three $50 services three choices to choose from

• 60 Min Fusion Massage with Choice of Aromatherapy Oil Blend
• 60 Min Pumpkin Enzyme Facial, Anti-Aging Vitamin C Facial and Microdermabrasion Treatment
• Choice of 60 Min Honey Apple Signature Body Scrub and Wrap or Beauty Spa Manicure, Pedicure and Paraffin Treatment for Hands and Feet

After getting lost and showing up a few minutes late for my treatment (my own fault, I can get lot in my own t-shirt!), I walked in a ball of nerves and noticeably frazzled. But within seconds I melted into the serene setting and positive vibe. I was met by my massage therapist, Patricia, who ushered me into the dimly lit treatment room. I went with the Fusion Massage and chose a warm, pumpkin spice fragrance as my aromatherapy oil blend choice. As a beauty writer, I have the privilege of trying out a lot of swanky spa treatments and I found the service I received at The Spa 25 to be truly top-notch. It was absolutely intoxicating and you know a massage is amazing when you go to put your shoes on after your treatment and it takes you minutes to realize… they are on the wrong feet! I floated home, at times, kind of tempted to lick my arm (I didn’t!) because my entire body smelled like a succulent warm slice of pumpkin pie topped with a dollop of cream. So yes,yes,yes, if you’re due for a visit to the spaaah, this is the perfect deal. Go forth, my friends and book thee a $50 service…stat! And if you’re in Suffolk County on Long Island, The Spa 25 was fabulous—I can’t wait to return to try out some of their other beauty, medi and wellness services.

Spa Week bookings start about five weeks before the event you so if you want to get in on the action, you should act now. Appointments are in-demand, and they book up rather quickly. Is your fave spa joining in the nation-wide festivities? Finding the info is totally simple: Head to the Spa Week website, search their Spa & Wellness Directory to find a participating location near you, input your city / state or zip code, then select “$50 Treatments” and hit search. Voila, you are that much closer to spa-ing for a major steal.
