Who’s there?


Orange who?

International Orange.  Duh.

I was lucky enough to spend part of my birthday getting a facial at International Orange spa this year.  I opted for the International Orange signature facial and was one of my favorites . . . ever.


The spa itself is an urban oasis.  The look is clean and streamlined.  International Orange offers yoga and spa services.  The city location has a lovely lounge and sundeck for relaxing before or after services.  (They have a second location at the Marin Country Mart.  I haven’t been there . . . yet . . . but the photos look beautiful.)


It had been longer than I care to admit since my last facial.  Years, actually.  I was way, way overdue.  My skin was in rough shape.  I felt like it was dry and completely lackluster.  Bottom line is that it was starting to show its age and then some.  When I arrived I told the aesthetician my concerns and she quickly came up with a strategy.  Seventy-five minutes later, my skin was glowing and I felt relaxed.

Like all spas, the International Orange shop offers activewear as well as a number of skincare lines.  What I really liked is that nobody pushed products on me.  In fact, they actually gave me a sample of one of the recommended products to try at home.  I was thrilled.  There is nothing worse than buying an expensive beauty product and having it go unused.

If this cold weather is doing a number on your skin, I highly recommend a facial at International Orange; it is the perfect antidote for winter skin.
