Bourbon Beauty: Skyn Lounge: Louisville's Premiere Boutique Spa Pt. 1

Having my kids home for summer vacation, is always bitter sweet. I adore waking up with them in the mornings, lounging around at the park, watching them giggle with content as they run around care free... but the responsibility of keeping kids fed, clean, and ENTERTAINED 24/7 (with no respite) can take a toll on anyone! I feel like everyone deserves some time to themselves. When I was asked to review a spa, I was overjoyed to say the least. My babies would be heading back to school, and I would finally be able to get a little me time.

It's been at least a year since I've had a massage, so the idea of getting a bit of pampering sounded like heaven on earth! Stepping into Skyn Lounge felt *exactly* like that.

Walking in, the first thing you notice is the elegance of the space. Very serene decor, tranquil colors, it felt very inviting. (I've been to horribly busy spas, overtired employees trying to rush you out for their next client. This was not the case here! It was very peaceful, and the women were very attentive.)



I was offered water while I waited to be seen for my appointment.  I filled out a thorough questionnaire, (I suggest coming in at least 10 minutes early, so you have enough time to be thoughtful with your requests/ medical history.) and was promptly seen soon after.


The room I was taken into, had dim lighting, and soft serene music playing in the background. I was told to undress to my comfort level, and was handed a soft wrap. Climbing onto the massage table, and melting into the heated covers felt amazing.  


Katie was very attentive, and walked me through every procedure I had done. She gave me an amazing massage (I personally enjoy someone with a heavy hand, and appreciated that she made sure the pressure was okay.). She cleansed my make up, exfoliated my face, did extractions, and explained everything she was doing very thoroughly.

Towards the end of my facial, she did an LED light therapy (I was excited to try this, especially since I know this is very popular with celebrities!). I've seen this procedure splashed across social media, and I had been very curious to try it out.

Per their website:

"LED red or blue light therapy delivers light energy in a similar way that plant absorbs light energy from the sun. LightStim emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that energize cells and stimulate skin's protein building and cell regeneration."

When I was done with my facial (I had complimentary make up done, coming up on my next post), I was happy to know they did makeup. (I always joke that I carry my face in my cosmetic bag, and its so true! I hate leaving my home without makeup. I loved that they offered that, so I wouldn't feel so naked running around doing my errands.).

My dry skin desperately needed some attention, and I couldn't be more happy with the results! Skyn Lounge gave me an amazing experience, and I can't wait to go back. If you're looking for a little pampering, (or maybe a gift for the Christmas season!), I HIGHLY recommend Skyn Lounge. I've already told my mom about the place, and I foresee a girl's night happening *very* soon.

Thank you Skyn Lounge for having me!
