New treatments at Spa Oceana - Loews Don CeSar

I am burnt out. Being slammed at work and constant travel has finally caught up to me. I have only been home for one weekend over the past 3 months and am on the road during the work week. So when my friends at Loews Don CeSar in St Pete invited me to come out and try two of Spa Oceana's new offerings - OSEA & HydraFacial™, I found myself clearing out my calender to make some "me time" and head over to my perfect paradise, the Pink Palace.
Following a very dreary and cold weekend, I found myself sitting on the rooftop at Spa Oceana on what was one of the most beautiful days we have had in a while. With a glass of champagne in hand, I finally started relaxing for the first time in months.
Prior to my services, I had the chance to enjoy a Spa lunch and catch up with my friend Jeff. He ordered the most spectacular fruit plate while I ordered a grouper sandwich. I couldn't help myself when I saw the sandwich had roasted tomatoes and arugula on it. I ate every bite.
With a satisfied belly, it was time to enjoy my half spa day. I started off with the OSEA Healing Sea Cocoon. OSEA is a brand new line that Loews Don CeSar brought to Spa Oceana. This natural skincare line is made in America using eco-responsible USDA certified organic seaweed from Patagonia.
The Sea Cocoon treatment started with a Salt of the Earth scrub. After all the dead skin was removed with the salt, it was then nourished and softened with the combined healing properties of Undaria Algae Oil and Gigartina Algae Gel. Finally, I was wrapped in a warm cocoon of calcium-rich white algae mask, followed by an application of an antioxidant-rich organic body balm. This treatment took 90 minutes and I felt as if I was in pure bliss. My skin never felt that soft and refreshed.
Following my body treatment, it was time to head off for a HydraFacial™. I was super excited for this treatment as it was explained to me as a non-invasive micro-derm. My skin is super sensitive so I could never handle anything that was super abrasive without having a bad reaction. Luckily for me, the HydraFacial™ was gentle on the skin but while restoring youthful, healthy skin. I had the 60 minute treatment which began with a Lymphatic Drainage therapy to initiate the detoxification process.
Then, the HydraFacial™ deeply cleanses, exfoliates, extracts and hydrates the skin. There were multiple steps to this process;
1. Cleansing and Exfoliation - Dead skin cells are removed to reveal healthy new skin
2. Acid Peel - A gentle peel helps loosen dirt and debris from pores without irritation
3. Extractions - Painless, automated extractions use vortex suction to clean out pores
4. Hydration - Antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid are Vortex-Fused to nourish and protect
5. Protection - The HydraFacial™ Daily Essentials help maintain and protect your results.
I absolutely love spending time at Loews Don CeSar and try to visit as much as possible. You can check out Spa Oceana online to view their full spa menu and call 727-363-5029 to schedule your spa experience.
