February is the month of love and what better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a luxurious trip to the spa? We offer great packages and side-by-side rooms that allow you to connect and relax with your loved one while getting pampered.

But if you can't make it to the spa or want to get a little more intimate here are some of the best ways to celebrate Valentine's Day with that special person:
  • Take the spa to your home with massages oils, candles and relaxing music! Skindulgence sells all of these :)
  • Go out for a romantic dinner at a quiet restaurant or your favourite place to grab a bite
  • Spend the day reliving your first date (if it was a good one!)
  • Curl up on the couch for a movie marathon and a take-out food.
  • Try cooking some exciting foods and incorporate some classic aphrodisiacs.
  • Skip dinner and indulge in some chocolate and wine
Whatever you end up doing, be it with your friends, your partner or your family, we hope that you rejoice in spending quality time together and remember just how happy you are to have loving people in your lives!

(Guess who wins!)

Skin Care
 At Skindulgence we pride ourselves in being knowledgeable on the products and services we offer. We are passionate about skincare and are always striving to bring our clients the most effective products possible to maximize your results.

There are thousands of different skincare brands on the market and choosing a line that works for you can be difficult. Have you ever gone into your local drugstore and stared at the array of cleansers, toners, lotion, potions and creams? It's no wonder that so many women struggle with a wide range of skin issues; Figuring out what is right for you is nearly impossible! And even if you do manage to make a decision, often drugstore brands are irritating and ineffective.

Many women turn to high-end skincare that is sold at counters in big department stores. While the ingredients used may be of better quality (versus drugstore brands) often these companies have their skincare lines as an add-on to makeup lines. This means they aren't completely focused on the art of maintaining women's skin and don't necessarily have your best interest at heart.

So we've done the leg work for you. Our Spa Director and Head Esthetician, Tazeem Jamal, has been in the business for over twenty years. She has tried countless skincare lines and knows what works: GM Collin and Yonka are the two premium skincare lines that we carry and stand by 100%. They are made with the finest ingredients, are result-oriented and easily customized to suit any skin type.
The best part about coming into Skindulgence to purchase your skincare products is that we won't make you guess what products are right for your individual needs. Instead, you can book a free consultation and we will assess your skin for you. Dry skin? Dehydrated skin? Oily? Acne prone? Aging? Don't worry -- We've got a product to help your skin look and feel amazing. The cost will also surprise you: Dollar for dollar you will get far more for your money, not to mention results like never before. We promise!
Call us today to book your complimentary skincare consultation and find out what so many clients have known for years.
Bota Peptide 5 Concentrate

Free Toes!
HOT New Product! 

Free Toes

Introducing Free Toes, the socks that allow your toes to go free!

These funky socks were designed by nine-year-old Katelyn, a young entrepreneur from White Rock, British Columbia.

Free Toes are great for doing yoga or pilates because they keep your feet warm but still allow your toes to grip the mat. They're also ideal for dance class as they allow the heel to spin but keep the toe slip-free!

We think the one of the great uses for them is at the spa: After a pedicure you have to wear flip-flops but with this cold weather that can get chilly. As the photo above demonstrates, Free Toes allow the toes to fit through the sandal but also keep the rest of the foot warm.

We are thrilled to be one of first retail outlets to carry these funky socks! Check out the great selection, one size fits all.

Facts about Facials
Did you know? 

Facials  v     Your skin is the largest organ of your body and requires external and internal help through skin care maintenance.

 v     Having a facial once a month helps to slow down the aging process and maintains clean, clear skin.

 v     Most of our clinical facials have an AHA exfoliation treatment to deeply  remove dead skin cells and brighten the skin, evening out skin colour and smoothing the surface.

 v     The "relaxation" benefit of having a facial is good for everyone's health! Seratonin like effects are experienced through massage and relaxing.

 v     Facials purify and tone the muscles of the face and energize skin by increasing blood circulation. 

 v     Facial massage and products can stimulate the collagen and elastin renewal process in the skin.

 v     Having regular facials can help your make up go on smoother and increases product absorption. The amount of product you use will be less, with impacted results!
