Drift Spa Fall Features
Something is Brewing this Fall
Lose yourself in an atmosphere filled with warm rich scents of roasted chestnuts, vanilla bourbon, caramel coffee and cream. Our Fall Features are designed to relax your soul and soften and nourish your skin. Treat yourself or someone you love today!
Bourbon and Chestnut Body Treatment | 60 min $95 – Add 25 min Massage $30
Brimmed with nutrients, roasted chestnuts infused towels will put you in a cozy relaxing state. A bourbon body polish to exfoilate and Texas Wildflower honey to soften rough skin. Finishing with a Vanilla Bourbon body oil.
Coffee n’ Cream Facial | 50 min $65
A creamy milk washes away excess dirt and oil, before a soothing application of Vitamin Berry Tonic. Then, a caffeine-infused caramel coffee sugar polish increases circulation and nourishes your skin with shea butter. Next, you’ll be painted in an antioxidant-rich, dark chocolate mask to prevent free radical damage. Add a pigment brightening serum to even skin tone. Finally, a botanical blend Three Milk Moisturizer with clinical peptides brings a rich, creamy finish that instantly feels firming as it helps spur on collagen production to reduce the look of deep wrinkles. Crow Catcher serum treats your eye area to a smooth, firm appearance so you look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
Fireside Toast Manicure & Pedicure |Manicure $35 – Pedicure $45
Soft notes of roasted chestnuts as skin dips into a coconut oil-infused soak. A Kentucky whiskey scrub complete with skin softening rice bran oil removes all dry patches. Ending with a spiced steeped milk lotion to quench skin’s thirst.
