Luxury Beauty: The ESPA Facial At The Peninsula Spa In Chicago

If you visit or live in Chicago and want to experience the “Best Urban Hotel Spa”* visit The Peninsula Spa for a Peninsula Spa facial. The pampering services and the peaceful space takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The 15,000-square-foot Peninsula Spa and adjoining fitness center is located on the top two floors of the five-star Peninsula Chicago. The floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile flooding the spa with natural light. You can enjoy pampering holistic therapies, inventive spa cuisine, the latest exercise equipment and facilities with a pool and sun deck overlooking the city.
The Peninsula Spa facial Relaxation Area
I had the opportunity to enjoy a 90-minute personalized facial treatment at The Peninsula Spa with all natural ESPA products. I thought 90 minutes sounded like too much time, but I savored every moment. The therapist used the CACI Ultimate machine, an advanced computer-aided treatment system that combines the effects of crystal free microdermabraision, firming microcurrent, lymphatic drainage, LED light therapy and an advanced collagen based Hydro Mask. It is a non-invasive procedure and my skin was instantly toned and rejuvenated – a pain-free and quick way to look several years younger!
Get to The Peninsula Spa early or stay a while after your service to enjoy tea, juice and snacks in the relaxation area overlooking the pool. Simply viewing the pool adds to the tranquility of the spa.
ESPA Founder Susan Harmsworth was at The Peninsula Chicago earlier in the week to host a breakfast. I was so pleased to meet her and ask her skincare questions. Her skin is like that of a 40 year-old, and she told us she’s 67! Susan showed us the newest ESPA products, my favorite being the Optimal Skin Proserum, an light and aromatic serum. All of ESPA’s products are natural and tested to nourish your skin.
