{Post-Facial with April, hence the no makeup and dewy complexion 🙂 }

After the craziness of Fashion Week and Blogalicious wore off, I scheduled a facial for myself with April Monterrosa, skincare specialist extraordinaire and owner of The Lil Spa Room.  I figured it would be a nice treat to keep the stress of being busy at bay, and shockingly I had never actually had a facial before! I guess previously my concept of a facial was that it would be super clinical, slap some paste on my face, wait twenty minutes, rinse, and I’d be on my way.  Obviously in hindsight I had no idea what I was in for.

April treated me with a full hour of pampering, including multiple cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing treatments.  She even did some “extracting”, the official code for taking care of the blackheads/whiteheads that have so wonderfully made a resurgence during pregnancy for me.  JOY.  But my favorite part, by far, was the hand and shoulders massage while the goodness seeped in to my skin.  I genuinely had no idea if this would be a relaxing experience or not, but I left with my skin glowing and my mind at peace.  Not easy to do when you’ve got a thousand plates in the air, but April managed to work her magic.

Now she wants to work her magic on you! She’s offering one lucky reader a quintessential fall experience: her signature Pumpkin Cheesecake Facial! It’s good for all skin types, even preggos like me, and it’s perfect to celebrate Thanksgiving and the holiday season with a fresh and rejuvenated perspective.  According to her website, this facial is ideal because “Pumpkin, “nature’s natural collagen”, is the perfect way to celebrate fall and replenish dry, summer skin. The Pumpkin Facial exfoliates surface skin cells (Anti aging results can be seen by the reduction of lines and wrinkles in addition to an improvement in the skin’s elasticity.), provides antioxidant support, stimulates collagen activity, uses a warming pumpkin mask and leaves skin feeling smooth and perfectly polished! This festive facial is a seasonal favorite, and I am sure it will be one of yours too!”

So give April and The Lil Spa Room a try! Enter the giveaway below!
