Rejuvenate With a HydraFacial at Spa Evangeline

Posted On February 24th, 2016

hydra2This past weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the Epicurean Hotel’s Spa Evangeline to check out their latest and greatest treatment to hit their spa; the HydraFacial MD®. This unique experience blew away all expectations and is my new go-to when my skin needs a boost.

Spa Evangeline is one of only two spas in Tampa that provides this new non-laser skin resurfacing treatment.

The HydraFacial MD® is a complete breakthrough in facial technology and is offered with no pain and no downtime. If you’re looking to add something to your normal facial routine or looking to start one, I suggest making an appointment today. In as little as 30 minutes, you’ll feel completely refreshed and rejuvenated. After my treatment, my face looked clearer, bright, very little redness (went away within 10 minutes after treatment), no swelling and could go about my day without hiding under a hat. This treatment has a soft, cool and soothing feel, moisturizes and leaves your skin looking very vibrant and fully hydrated.

Florida Strawberry Mojito

Posted On February 12th, 2016

_DSC6537In celebration of Florida Strawberry Month in January, we’ve been featuring special recipes featuring our fresh and local, Florida Strawberries. Florida Strawberries are in the peak of their season conveniently following their motto, “A taste of summer all winter long!” Though it’s cold and dreary in many parts of the country, February is fabulous in Florida where strawberry growers are harvesting their winter crop and shipping hand-picked fruits to key markets all around the world. Lucky for us, our strawberry farmers are right down the road in Plant City, FL, which is also known as the “Winter Strawberry Capital of the World!” To support our local community, the Epicurean Hotel’s outlets are striving to include Florida strawberries in cocktails, menu items and even spa treatments.
