The beautiful thing about Spa Week is the affordability factor.

Spa Week

Spa Space, Chicago

Spas and salons that typically offer $90 facials and $100 massages slash their prices so that hardworking women who deserve a spa treatment — like you and me — can enjoy a spa treatment. In my humble opinion, that truly makes it the most wonderful time of the year (sorry, Christmas). My best advice to you is, don’t forget your Spa Week Rules of Engagement, and make those appointments now! Because once reservations open (which they already have, on September 12), those $50 slots go fast.

In case you’ve missed my annual posts and haven’t yet visited, let me put you up on game. From October 10th – 16th, hundreds of spas, salons, and studios around the country will offer two or three exclusive services for just $50 each. This probably includes places that are in your city, and happily for me many of the Windy City’s chicest spots, from Chicagoland to the Gold Coast are going above and beyond with unique treatments.

I got a Spa Week sneak peek of some of Chicago’s coolest $50 treatments. Spa Space on the west side is offering a 50 minute Indian head massage with hot stones. Appease Inc. will be offering an hour long organic chocolate facial. And at Soulistic Studio & Spa you can work out your own tension with 45 minutes of Pilates or yoga personal training, and half an hour’s worth of infrared sauna or steaming. I want (OK, need) all three!

See anything calling your name at What treatment do you need the most? A massage? A facial? A mani pedi? What’s your must-try because you’re worth it spa indulgence?

This is right on time for me. I just BC'd Saturday and want to raise my skincare and makeup game to the next level. I am so down for a facial. I work down the street from Spaspace but would like to check out a place "where the Bella's be at". Knowledgeable, great technique and very good products. Any recommendations?

You can start booking appointments now at the vast majority of spas. Although, many spas are closed on I would try to lock in that appointment tomorrow.

Great information! A couple of spas have just recently opened in my city, so I will definitely check out the website to see what's available in my area. Thanks for posting!

I've heard of spa week before, but I've never booked a service. Personally, I'm interesting in the waxing services, you know, things my friends, bff cannot do. lol. I follow DIY home remedies, it makes for an interactive, and money saving fun time. You should try them:
