Last Wednesday, we were invited to the Spa Week Media Party at the Prince George Ballroom where we were pampered head to toe in anticipation for April 2011 Spa Week.

Celebrating the 14th season of great spa deals, to the party was to kick off of Spa Week that starts today, Monday, April 11th, 2011, and runs Sunday the 17th!  With great offers on all types of spa and salon treatments for just $50 – from massages, manicure/pedicure packages, medical spas, waxing and hair removal services, to eyelash boutiques, fitness and weight loss centers – you better start booking your appointments back to back.

Supple Spa, recently featured on MTV’s dating show Gamekiller, was on-site giving relaxing massages, and Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics were stationed to give makeovers.  The Vdara Hotel and Spa Las Vegas was there as the destination sponsor, along with Allure Magazine and Carefree, who had guests play a fun guessing game to win prizes.

Dole set up a colorful flavored oxygen bar where people parked their noses for a relaxing sniff.

Clarisea had their products out for people to take a look, along with a sea salt bar with buckets of different types of salt and scrubs that we could mix and match to create our own personalized body scrub.

We left with all sorts of goodies in our epic gift bag.  All the swag is shown in the gallery below, but I just wanted to highlight this:

Bikini Graffiti is exactly what it looks: a patch for added decoration to your crotch.  I guess this is the poor man’s version of salon vajazzling?  It’s $20 for the “party” version with cutesy prints, $25 for the “glamor” lacy style, and $30 if you want more colored fur to add to your… well, let’s not get too crude.

Are there any ladies out there that would consider using this?  For serious??  I’d like to take a poll.

As per usual, Spa Week knows best when it comes to spas, salons, and pampering our body and soul, and we’re so excited to book our first $50 appointment!  Check out the Spa Week site to see all the great offers to you available in tons of cities throughout the country.
