As Tamiko literally brushed my dry skin with a wooden brush, I knew that this Bliss Spa signature treatment was going to get my skin in shape for spring.
Thanks to the fabulous and generous folks at the Bliss Spa at the W Atlanta - Downtown, I was invited to get my skin spruced up with the Elemis Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow. (Disclaimer y’all, I was hosted for this treatment.)
After sweating it out in the W’s 16th floor gym that has the most amazing views of Midtown Atlanta (BTW, gym access is complimentary with treatments at Bliss), I headed back to the locker room to put on my spa uniform — a robe and flip flops. Oh, and I enjoyed my complimentary glass of bubbly and some snacks (love the cheese, olives, and brownie bites) before Tamiko arrived in the relaxation room to sweep me away for my 60-minute, full-body treatment.
So, back to the brushing. It can be a little intense having your dry skin literally brushed. (Tamiko encouraged me to let her know if I ever started to feel uncomfortable, which I really appreciated), But I also found it kind of invigorating. Tamiko followed up the brushing with the lime and ginger salt scrub, and then I was sent to the steam shower in the locker room to rinse off.
After the shower, I returned to the treatment room where a lovely smelling moisturizer was rubbed into my skin. And voila! My skin was ready for the short shorts and bikinis to come. Yep, I’ve found yet another “fit” at this spa spot. Let’s face it. It’s hard to leave this place feeling anything less than blissful.
