My good friend and fellow blogger Anne recently told me about a “Get Glowing” event at The Caudalie vinotherapy spa in New York City. Who could resist an evening of mini treatments, product education and fabulous wine from the estate owned by the family of Caudalie co-founder Mathilde Thomas….? Not me, I said to myself, and off to the spa I went….
Caudalie’s vinotherapy spa is situated rather glamorously and romantically within The Plaza Hotel, a fabulous New York destination for people watching whilst sitting in the Oak Room bar with a coffee, exploring the Assouline bookshop or sipping a glass of bubbly in The Champagne Bar. The spa sits on the fourth floor of The Plaza, sharing a space with the Presidential Suite. Not that you would know it, because walking into the spa is like walking into a golden oasis of calm. The glistening reception area near the lifts gives way to the sophisticated and relaxing interior of the spa lounge, where on the night of the event we were greeted with wine and cheese and then encouraged to indulge in mini-treatments that would help us ‘get our glow on’.
You can read a fabulous review of the spa and their Grand Facial treatment on Anne’s blog. The ‘Get Glowing’ evening was an opportunity to meet the owners, the delightful Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas who mixed effortlessly with their guests and were wonderfully approachable about the spa and their philosophy. They are highly passionate about what they do and wanted to educate guests about their products and their ethos. (FYI – yes, yes, both of them had great skin.)
“…an anti-ageing powerhouse cream, packed with three patents for exceptional immediate and long term clinical results”

I had a wonderful evening at the Caudalie ‘Get Glowing’ event. I left with a generous goodie bag (picture, top and below) filled with mini products and a voucher for $40 off a facial or massage treatment at the spa. Now all that remains is for me to decide which one to indulge in… hmmm….. any thoughts Blog Reader? Facial, massage – what treatments do you like? Have you ever used Caudalie and are you a fan of their products?
