Review: Harbour Day Spa

Wednesday, 8 April 2015
Yesterday I had the most amazing pamper day at the Harbour Day Spa in Cleveland and I simply had to share my experience. I was invited to try the Autumn Spa Luxury Package, at the gorgeous spa which is located about 30 minutes from Brisbane city. I have only had a full body massage at a spa before but this package was the definitely a full luxe pampering and I know for sure I will be going back, especially after a long semester of university or as a birthday treat. 
The Arrival Experience
The staff at the Harbour Day Spa are very friendly and professional. As soon as Jacquelyn (of Hey There Jacquelyn) and I arrived we were greeted and offered Raspberry & Lime tea while we waited briefly for our beauty therapists. We also browsed though the various giftware and gorgeous candles as well. 

We were quickly moved into a changing room to get into our bathrobe and flip flops and we went to wait in the tranquil sitting room with comfy chairs, soft lighting, mood music and the most amazing fragrant candles to get you ready for amazing pampering. There were also nibbles and drinks if you needed a refreshment.

The Spa Treatment
Before our treatments we had a Visia Skin Analysis which reveals deeper information about skin condition, oil production, clogged pores and pigmentation. It diagnoses skin issues so a facial can be targeted for your personal skin needs. My scan unsurprisingly revealed pigmentation issues which has reminded me that I really do need to get into the habit of applying a sunscreen every single day. Wear your sunscreen, ladies! Other than pigmentation and dehydration my skin is fairly okay.

We were then moved into the couples suite because we booked for our treatments together to make things more fun. They also have single rooms for a more private experience. The room was lovely, a perfect temperature with dim lighting, soft music and lovely scents. The room also includes a spa bath for other treatments on the menus including the milk, honey and rose petal spa bath (which sounds amazing!) and creamy almond milk bath. They even offer a gorgeous Cozy Couple Retreat package which includes a spa bath, full body massage and champagne for you and your significant other.

We were treated to the Autumn Spa Luxury Package which includes 1 hour and 30 minutes of the most luxurious pampering. We started with an Orange & Almond Foot Scrub in warm foot baths. We then got onto the massage tables for a body brush and then a full back, neck & shoulder aromatherapy oil massage with hot stones which were ah-mazing! We were given a choice of two oils for the massage and I chose the relaxing blend over the energising one because I love lavender. We were also asked how firm we wanted our massage and I opted for a firmer, deep tissue massage which was so relaxing and left me feeling like jelly. 

Once we were all massaged and relaxed it was time to flip over for a hydrating facial which also included the most amazing face, neck and decolletage massage. The back of my neck is officially the favourite part of my body to have massaged. It is basically like transcendent heaven right here on earth. I challenge you to try it an not agree. It also only just beats the lovely warm towels they use to clean you off afterwards. The facial included a full cleanse, exfoliation, mask, serum, moisturise and weightless sunscreen using the O Cosmedics range of skincare products which I actually really like and look forward to trying more of in the future. We then finished our treatment with a warm coconut scalp treatment and massage.
Glammin' Up
After our treatments were finished, we still had plenty more pampering to go. As we were told, Harbour Day Spa thinks the full experience is important. So many spa treatments leave you feeling awesome but you often leave with a bare face and bedraggled hair. To provide a full experience, they want you to leave looking as awesome as you feel. For this reason they offer the full shampoo, blowdry and makeup works to leave you glam and glowy. We moved to the salon section of the spa to have our shampoo and blow dry. We even had our hair styled into loose glam curls too. My hair stylist, Kristen, was even lovely enough to talk me through what she was doing and teach me how to get the gorgeous loose curls with a blow dry and flat iron since I can never get it quite right.

After our hair looked amazing, it was time for a quick makeup application. The makeup was a light, everyday makeup which I really liked. The lovely beautician used Curtis Collection by Victoria cosmetics and I loved them so much I even bought the BB cream and blush she used to take home. Expect a full review on the goodies I picked up at the spa very soon too.

So there is my entire experience at Harbour Day Spa and as you could probably tell it was absolutely amazing from start to finish. I know a spa pamper day can be a big expense but it is absolutely 100% worth it and honestly, you deserve it. I will definitely be visiting this spa in the future for hair cuts, massages and facials. Thanks to Jacquelyn for coming with me and making it such an amazing day. Also, a big thank you to all the lovely staff at Harbour Day Spa who treated us to such an amazing pamper session.

Stay Rosy.
