Aveda Spa at Macy’s Review for Fall Spa Week 2013

Sharing is caring!

Disclosure: I received a complimentary service at Aveda Spa at Macy’s in exchange for my honest review. All opinions, as always, are 100% my own!

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted to receive a free service at a spa in exchange for my review and helping promote Spa Week 2013 – now, who in the world could turn down a free visit to a spa? Definitely not me! I have to say this is one of my favorite reviews I have ever done! 🙂

The Aveda Salon and Spa at Macy's Review for Spa Week 2013 | Optimistic Mommy{Credit: Spa Week}

The spa I got to review was Aveda Spa at Macy’s in Tri-County Mall in Cincinnati, OH. Did you know that Macy’s had a spa? I sure didn’t! It’s on the 4th floor (again, didn’t even know there was a fourth floor to Macy’s) near the houseware items. I love how open and bright the front of the spa is. It’s very warm and inviting. The receptionist who asked me what they could help me with was very friendly and asked me if she could get me anything to drink while I waited for the lady who was going to do my nails. It’s so nice that they will do this!

My manicurist/pedicurist was Missy Wiseman. Let me tell you – she is so awesomely funny and nice! Funny thing is, we got to talking and she lives just about 10 minutes fro mme! Small world, especially when the salon is in Tri-County.

We first did the manicure. If you get a manicure, make sure that you get the paraffin treatment with it – it feels so good and leaves your skin nice and smooth! Since we have had a couple cooler days my hands were already starting to get kind of dry, but this took care of it! And almost a week later, and my hands are still smooth! I absolutely love the purple we chose for my nails – so pretty!

After the manicure was my pedicure – which is always my favorite! I love how the manicure room is just that – in a room itself. Makes it a lot more relaxing, in my opinion. I love the soaking of my feet in the spa tub they go in – so nice! You don’t get a paraffin treatment like with your hands since that would be extremely messy and hard to do, but you do get a “mask” type deal and it makes your feet and legs/calves nice and smooth! Check out the pretty red that we did for my toes:

I am extremely happy with the experience I had at Aveda Salon & Spa at Macy’s. Missy was fantastic! I definitely reccommend asking for her if you decide to go.

Spa week has become a bi-annual event which is held nationwide every April and October that helps focus on the health and wellness of consumers. For the fall it is being held October 14th through the 20th! Booking began September 16th so I definitely recommend booking your appointment ASAP so that you get a spot! There are several $50 treatment options available, including:

  • 50 minute Aveda Signature Swedish Massage
  • 50 minute Aveda Elemental Nature Facial or Aveda’s men’s Pure-Formance Facial
  • Manicure with paraffin treatment and pedicure or hair cut, conditioning treatment and finish

For $50 these are definitely great deals! I think I’m going to book an appointment for the hair cut, conditioning treatment and finish for October 19th – since my wedding anniversary is the 20th I want to look good for it. 🙂

To find a spa near you that is participating and get your appointment booked, make sure that you visit Spa Week’s website! What treatment do you think you will/would pick?
