Freelance writer from Brisbane exploring the city and surrounds to find the best coffee
Looking for relaxation? Look no further
I enjoy a pampering session as much as the next girl, so booking into different spas to check out their packages is a great way to experience different treatments and enjoy oneself.
Pure Indulgence Carindale Concept (there are two stores in the Westfield Carindale Mall), is part of the Pure Indulgence franchise line and operates 7 days a week including Thursday late night shopping hours, offering a variety of treatments. This one is located near the Ground Floor entry, opposite the T2 store.
I chose a chemical peel and face mask, with a shoulder, neck and scalp massage, to prepare for Valentine's Day. The waiting area was comfortable, with couches provided for seating and water available.
The treatment rooms were named for different, iconic cities of the world, including Paris, Milan, New York etc, which was a cute touch. They were also very clean and comfortable as well. My therapist asked which areas of concern with my skin and offered a map of my face under a UV light free of charge. It allowed a look at any problem areas she'd focus on.
I thoroughly enjoyed the massage and mask, not so much the chemical peel, but those aren't made for relaxation. My therapist was careful to check in with me after each step, to make sure the peel wasn't too painful, which I appreciated. After the treatment was completed, I was helped to sit up, in case I got dizzy from lying down for so long and was given a lovely cup of herbal tea while I paid my bill.
The whole service was very professional, everyone was very kind and helpful and the whole area was spotlessly clean and had an aura of calm. I'd highly recommend the Pure Indulgence Carindale Concept for anyone needing a bit of pampering.
