There are some people on your holiday shopping list that are tougher to buy for than others. Believe me, I get it. This year, I have a holiday gift idea that’s perfect for THAT someone. If she/he lives in Rhode Island, I highly recommend a gift certificate to Citrón Spa. This boutique spa is tucked away in the heart of Wayland Square at 500 Angell Street. Who doesn’t want to escape to an exquisite yet charming spa that’s just a crosswalk away from some of Providence’s most treasured shops, cafes and restaurants?
When I was invited by Citrón Spa owner Christina Allen to experience a free spa treatment, I was speechless. When asked if I could extend the invitation to some of my mommy blogging friends, she graciously accepted and our Blogger Spa Day was quite a treat.
From the moment you walk through the door, you feel at ease. Think modern boutique spa meets nature-inspired elements. You feel at home. Relaxed. And ready to be pampered. The staff are so welcoming, you feel like you’ve been there before. With natural oils, candles, neutral colors mixed with pops of green and yellow, comfy modern furniture, herbal tea and neck pillows, I felt like I was on a mini-retreat. The staff was friendly and professional, ready to make your visit as comfortable and memorable as possible.
Some friends enjoyed facials while others took in massages. I opted for a professional manicure and pedicure that was “to die for” and I was joined by two other blogging friends, which gave us a chance to kick back and catch up. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed being pampered. Dawn gave me a mani and pedi that I’ll never forget. It’s been a few weeks since my visit, and my nails are still looking healthy! I also heard from fellow bloggers that the massages and skin care services were equally amazing. Rave reviews all around.
In addition to professional manicures and pedicures, Citrón Spa offers massage and skincare services in three tiers: 30 minutes, 60 minutes, or 90 minutes. They also offer makeup application, waxing, and an array of medi-spa services. All medi spa services are performed by medical estheticians and registered nurses who work under the medical direction of an MD. All Cosmetic Laser treatments are performed utilizing the Cynosure Elite Laser.
For the local spa lover, you can even become a member. Spa membership packages can be tailored to a specific treatment or a combination of services. For more information, visit the website, and follow Citrón on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest! I can’t wait to go back. Right now, all gift certificates are 20% off.
Before you go, I have a treat for you!
