Don’t Miss Out on Our Cream Deodorant Special!

August 17, 2016


Into The Gloss writer, Alex Beggs, tried all three of the milk + honey deodorants and gave it a real New Yorker seal-of-approval.

They passed a 97 degree subway ride in which I had to hold on to the overhead bar, which means I was confident enough to expose the seated riders below me with my prickly pits. I never thought I’d make the switch from drugstore, aluminum deodorant to this hippie stuff, but I’m a convert.

Now, it’s your turn to take our Cream Deodorant for a test drive, and we’re sweetening the deal:

Take $5 off your cream deodorant order on with code: INTOTHEGLOSS

*Offer valid through September 30 on Cream Deodorant orders made via only.


Today is National Relaxation Day

August 15, 2016

mh-3303 (1)

Busy schedules, meetings, rush hour traffic are part of the daily grind. But today, let’s make a concerted effort to treat ourselves with kindness — it’s National Relaxation Day. This “holiday” is all about taking some time for yourself and, in our opinion, you definitely deserve a massage, facial, body treatment, or anything that screams (quietly), “relaxation.” To help you get into the spirit, we took a poll and asked our Spa Partisans how they like to unwind.

The results are in!



In 1st place, our Spa Partisans plan to end the day enjoying a nice glass of wine.


After a day of providing amazing customer service, many of us enjoy watching Netflix or surfing the web.


As you might have noticed from our #WellnessWendesday Facebook post, we love practicing yoga. Today, take some time to meditate with our 2nd Street District massage therapist, Lala, who provided us with this relaxing yoga sequence.


Last, but certainly not least, our Spa Partisans love to unwind with good book at the end of the day.

What Is Cupping?

August 11, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 1.33.24 PM

You may have noticed that some of the greatest Olympic athletes — ahem, Michael Phelps! Alex Naddour! — are sporting some rather odd-looking marks on their backs and shoulders. No, they’re not giant hickeys nor are they part of some new tattoo fad. Those small, circular marks are the result of a healing technique called “cupping.” We asked Jamie, massage therapist at milk + honey Hill Country Galleria, to give us the lowdown on cupping — what it is, why athletes are utilizing it, and why it’s good for you.

What is cupping?

Cupping is an ancient Chinese medicine modality that has been around for thousands of years. Cupping does, in fact, involve a cup — attached to a pump. The technique increases blood flow and helps to heal sore muscles.

Why are athletes, like Michael Phelps, cupping?

Athletes use it because it helps increase muscle recovery by helping to eliminate lactic acid and toxins from the muscle layer. By pulling the blood to the skin’s surface with suction, it allows for new oxygenated blood to help restore the tissues. That said, it’s not only useful for athletes. Most sports injuries stem from overuse and/or misuse of a muscle or, in some cases, lack of use. For example: if you have neck and shoulder pain that limits your use of your arms, cupping can help reduce muscle tension and help improve range of motion while helping to reduce inflammation by moving lymph fluid.

Is cupping for you?

Often times, clients come in feeling stressed, but after a cupping session, they leave feeling like a weight has been lifted! Cupping is great for shoulder, neck, and back tightness and pain — and is also amazing for releasing tight hamstrings, calves, and quads from running, sitting at a desk all day long, driving, and daily exercise.

Interested in trying cupping? Call 512.236.1115 to schedule an appointment. We offer cupping upon request.

What We’re Loving: The Best of July 2016

July 1, 2016

Thanks to prolonged daylight, rising temps, and a general proclivity for the outdoors, the Summer months usher in an entirely new set of things to do and products to “swear by.” As for us? We’re gravitating toward bright nail polishes, ice-cold treats, water-oriented activities, and most importantly, all forms of skin/sun protection — a perfect mix of essentials for hot weather. Keep reading for our product picks for the month ahead.

What’s the Deal With Those Himalayan Salt Lamps?

May 30, 2016

Perhaps, you’ve already noticed those glowing “orbs” of pink-ish light dotting the treatment rooms of our spas? If not, we’re here to tell you: we love a Himalayan crystal salt lamp here at milk + honey. Let us count the ways.


  1. It naturally purifies the air. When lit, it removes dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, pet dander, and other air pollutants.
  2. Because this lamp cleanses the air, it helps to reduce allergy and asthma symptoms as well as ease coughing.
  3. When lit, the lamp emits negative ions that fight against positively charged particles that cause you to feel stuff sluggish. Translation? You’ll experience increased energy levels.
  4. It naturally enhances your mood. I mean, how could it not? Increased energy levels, clean air, reduced allergies? Yes, please!
  5. It is an environmentally-friendly light source.
  6. While this may not be a true health benefit, it sure does make us happy — Himalayan crystal salt lamps reduce static electricity.

The best part of all this list making? milk + honey now offers these Himalayan Natural Crystal Salt Lamps ($40) in all of our locations. Don’t miss out!

New In: The Bearded Bastard

March 28, 2016


The Bearded Bastard. The name catches your attention and the packaging makes you do a double take, but it’s the sheer excellence of the product that keeps you hooked.

We’re excited to offer a selection of The Bearded Bastard fine men’s grooming products at all our milk + honey locations, including the signature beard oil, beard balm, and mustache wax. We encourage you to come in, pick your favorite scent (Woodsman, Opium Den, and Morocco), and try the testers… it’s certainly a product that appeals equally to your tactile sense as it does your olfactory one.

Every product we feature on our shelves must pass our stringent “clean ingredient bill of health,” as well provide our clients with an elevated, effective, unique skin and/or haircare experience. And in The Bearded Bastard, we’ve found a lineup that not only checks all of those boxes, but is handcrafted right here in Austin, Texas. That’s right: The Bearded Bastard not only keeps beards and mustaches happy, but is also locally-owned and operated, responsible, sustainable, plant-sourced with high quality ingredients, and smells so darn good. All that’s left to do is to come by and stock up.

You’ve read about the wonders of HydraFacials, but have you experienced our other transformative skin treatment, Same-Day Peels? While there’s a general misconception that peels will initially leave your skin irritated, our six CosMedix peels are specially formulated to be gentle yet effective.
