Relax Like a Real Housewife at Spa Nordstrom

For as much as I shop Nordstrom, I don’t Spa Nordstrom. Which is, retrospectively speaking, a self-inflicted beauty injustice. Spa Nordstrom is such a hidden gem! Not only is it a great place to relax and indulge, it’s also a great place to shop. There’s not many more than a dozen Spa Nordstrom locations nationwide, and I have easy access to two. Suddenly, I feel selfish. And blessed.  

During the month of January, Nordstrom is running a special promotion at its Spa locations for a trio of services: Healing Hot Stone Therapy Massage, $75, 60 min., (reg. price $100); Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion Skin Care Facial, $150 (reg. price $195); and Spa Pedicure $45 (reg. price $55) Very “New Year, New You.”

Chicago is not short on magnificent (get it?!) places to spa. I think Spa Nordstrom strikes a balance between quality and affordable luxury. Plus, it’s Nordstrom. So when you’re in that post-spa zen state of mind, you can wander a few floors down and treat yourself to those Vince Camuto “Ladell” Pumps you’ve (I’ve) been wanting.  

Courtesy of Nordstrom, I spent the better part of my day last weekend indulging in the January special. It was almost like that episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills where everyone goes to Adrienne’s house for a spa day. Minus the drama, of course. The Oxygen Treatment Facial is perhaps the fanciest treatment I’ve experienced, and it totally resembled one of the machine’s that was in Adrienne Maloof’s spa room.

I’ll save the rest for another post, and leave you with a few photos I snapped while in the waiting area. I felt like a kid in a candy store. So many displays of products and different lines that the store doesn’t carry.
