Spa-quality goodies at your fingertips

Wednesday, 2 May 2012

Spa-quality goodies at your fingertipsWhile nodding off under a pair of limber hands working on those knots is as much about the experience as it is about the divine smellies soaking into your skin, taking time off to spend an afternoon (or even an hour) at a spa is a luxury not all of us can afford. But now you can use those five-star products in your daily beauty routine in the comfort of your own home, any time you want.

Launched in February 2012 by salon-owner and industry expert Sarah Daly, The Spa Shop is an online store, which sells quality beauty products used in spas around South Africa. Browsing by category allows you to find body, hair, skincare and make-up products. And if The Spa Shop’s extensive range becomes overwhelming, you can simply switch to browsing by brand to find your favourite products.

The Spa Shop even stocks men’s products, as well as any tools and accessories you may need to recreate your spa experience at home. These spa products also make great gifts, and could be the perfect place to pick up a birthday, anniversary or thank you gift. If you’re not sure what to get your mom, sister, best friend or man, why not drop one of The Spa Shop’s gift vouchers or cards into your shopping basket.

‘For years my clients and friends have been asking me which products I think are the best quality, and I’ve been recommending products, brands, wellness destinations and answering many skin and beauty-related questions,’ says Daly. ‘I felt that I wanted to share my experience in this growing industry, and the knowledge I had acquired along the way, and for that to go beyond just the people I personally interact with.’

The website’s minimalist design and easy-to-use categories allow you to browse effortlessly, creating a pleasant shopping experience. Checking out is even easier. Simply provide your billing address and you’ll be automatically registered on the website. When returning, just log in with your username and password.

We purchased two items from the online store and they were delivered within days. So, if you’re looking for a great Mother’s Day gift, make your way to The Spa Shop.
