Sumbody’s products, with their goat-milk base and locally sourced ingredients, have long been some of my favorite, so I was eager to experience a spa treatment at their newest location in the Napa Valley.
Tucked away in one of Napa’s newest shopping centers, the Sumbody spa and store is conveniently located between a Sift cupcake shop and an upscale nail salon. This provides the perfect set up for a “girlfriend indulgence date”: cupcake, pedicure, massage and shopping, all without leaving the parking lot!
Entering the delicious smelling and beautiful retail shop, I was welcomed by my spa practitioner and led to the “spa nook” behind the store. The gentle sounds of a wall fountain provided a soothing environment, as did the soft lighting and overall eco-chic design of the nook.
My sixty minute healing massage integrated some of my favorite Sumbody products, including their Milky Rich lotion which smells and feels as deliciously “milky rich” as it sounds. A blend of Sumbody’s “Passion” and “Relaxing” essential oil combos were used as a spritzer, which provided a refreshing lift at various moments in the massage. Small touches like hot towels used on my feet and the heated gel pad on the massage table made this an experience to remember.
Following my massage, I received a 30 minute “mini-facial”. Again the Sumbody products were the star of the show. The gentle feel of the age-defying facial cleanser had just a touch of a bead like exfoliant, providing a moisturizing effect, while removing dead skin easily.
One of the stand outs of the facial was a gentle brushing of Sumbody’s mineral based blush and application of their “Tipsy” tinted lip balm. I loved leaving the facial with just a hint of natural color, without the overly red and blotchy skin that sometimes is the result of an extractive facial.
Browsing in the store after my treatments, the friendly retail assistants answered all my questions and showed me how to apply some of the eye-catching new shadow shades. I was inspired enough to move away from my normal purple fixation and branched out into exciting new shadow territory after my helper praised the benefits of a striking orange shade.
If you’re looking for retail therapy that covers all your senses, (taste, touch, smell, sound, and sight), check out the Sumbody store and spa in Napa, where you can indulge in a complete sensory experience, all in the comfort of one location.
