Facial, Foot Massage & Summer Survival Kit Giveaway + Hand & Stone Classic Facial Review


Just before my Las Vegas trip I was invited to Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Burlington to experience their classic facial. Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa is a spa chain of passionate professionals specialising in affordable, easy to fit into your schedule massage and facial services. There are several locations across the US and Canada, the one I went to is their Burlington, ON location. I have to admit that I’m not much of a girlie girl so my skin is something I’ve been neglecting for years, but as I become older (I still can’t believe I’ll be 40 next month!), skin care is increasingly coming onto my radar. Lately new words have slowly been joining my vocabulary, words such as: exfoliating, toning, serum and moisturising so when I was invited in to Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Burlington for a facial I jumped at the chance. What girl doesn’t love a chance to relax?!?

Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa Burlington

The first thing I noticed when I arrived at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa is the relaxing atmosphere. The staff are quiet, polite and friendly. The colours of the spa are also inviting. Blue is my favourite colour and I find earth tones very relaxing.



The first thing I had to do for my facial was fill out a lengthy questionnaire. This is an important first step because I once knew someone who was taking a strong acne medicine who had an awful experience with an eyebrow wax because the aesthetician failed to ask if she was taking any medications. Some products can be highly reactive to your chemistry if you’re taking medications, so a questionnaire is necessary and is a sign of a reputable spa who cares about providing you with the best services for you.

After I completed the questionnaire I was led to my facial room by my aestheticism. The facial room at Hand & Stone was clean and appealing. It has a pleasant scent and relaxing music.

My aesthetician was amazing! She helped me to feel relaxed and at ease. I was a little nervous about having someone treat my face, but I had nothing to worry about. She explained the process thoroughly, asked me more questions about my skincare routine, then left the room so that I could get myself comfy on the bed. My facial was sheer bliss!


She cleansed, exfoliated, gave me a treatment mask, toned and moisturised my skin. She also completed a skincare analysis for me to help me choose the appropriate products from the Dermalogica line and told me when to use them. Because I’m horrible at remembering that kind of stuff she gave me a unique facemap that shared all of that information with me, and which zones to apply the products to.

Afterwards my face felt and looked fresh and rejuvenated!


All in all I was completely happy with my facial treatment and can’t wait to go back! I would highly recommend calling Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa Burlington to book your next facial: 905-633-9444 or by email:

    Yay for pampering days like that! As a busy mom & triathlete you definitely deserve it.
    Am I that person you are referencing with the horrible eyebrow wax experience? ha ha

    I’m probably supposed to give the prize to my wife, but Dermologica Sunscreen rules… and most of their other products do too.

    I got a gift certificate to the day at a local spa for Mother’s Day. I’m so itching to use it! Getting pampered such as you did is a rare occasion! I’m glad you enjoyed your day!

    I need my feet done because they are dry and calloused and could use a pedicure too (poor things!)
