Review of Dermalogica Mineral Salt Scrub

By Megan Murphy 10/06/2015

I’m not normally a spa person but when my sister called me raving about The Buff Day Spa I decided to look them up. I noticed that they had a wide range of treatments to choose from. I called to inquire about which treatment would be best since I was going to be going on holiday the next week. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. She suggested that I get a Dermalogica Mineral Salt Scrub because it would take all of the dead skin cells off, exfoliate and moisturize my skin and would even help remove toxins; leaving my skin soft and radiant.

Unfortunately the day of my appointment I had a hectic day at work so I was unable to arrive early enough to use the sauna or tranquillity room. I was shown to the changing room and given a fluffy robe, disposable underwear and slippers to change into. I was then escorted to the relaxation area to enjoy complimentary tea and a good variety of magazines. My therapist, Maria, greeted me and took me to a dimly lit, cosy room with soft music playing. The treatment hadn’t even started yet and I already felt totally relaxed.

Maria told me to take off my robe and slippers and lie down on the bed with a towel over my chest. This could have been an awkward experience for someone who has never been to a spa but Maria made me feel completely comfortable and at ease. She started scrubbing my legs while explaining to me what the product was doing for my skin and how it would benefit me. We chatted easily as she asked me about my holiday plans but she knew the perfect balance of when to let me relax and when to ask questions. After she scrubbed my whole body she turned on the shower and told me to take my time. There was shower gel provided in the shower and I could already see and feel the difference in my skin!

After the shower she massaged hydrating lotion over my freshly scrubbed skin and told me to take my time getting dressed. I felt so relaxed and refreshed. It was just what I needed after a long day at work and right before my holiday.

This visit to The Buff Day Spa has changed my whole idea on going for treatments and I will definitely be returning; this time making sure I’m there early enough to relax even more in the Sauna and Tranquility room. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants a relaxing treatment in a peaceful setting with fantastic staff.
