Pregnancy-Friendly Spa Treatments and Products

April 24, 2024

Pregnancy is such a beautiful journey, filled with excitement, anticipation, and a whole lot of love. But amidst all the wonder and joy, it’s crucial to take care of both your body and mind. After all, nurturing yourself is just as important as nurturing the precious life growing within you.

At milk + honey, we understand the importance of safe and luxurious self-care during pregnancy. While some traditional spa treatments may not be suitable for expectant mothers, we’ve curated a selection of treatments and products designed specifically to pamper you while prioritizing the safety of you and your baby.

One of our best offerings for pregnant bodies is the Prenatal Massage. Tailored to the unique needs of expectant mothers, this massage is a soothing oasis amidst the discomforts of pregnancy. Say goodbye to backaches, swollen feet, and joint pain as our skilled therapists work their magic to ease your troubles away.

The pampering doesn’t stop there. Our Customized Express and Signature Facials are formulated with non-toxic ingredients, ensuring a gentle yet effective treatment for your changing skin. Bid farewell to harsh chemicals and embrace the glow of pregnancy with confidence.

We also urge you to avoid any treatments containing retinoids or harsh chemicals that may be absorbed into the bloodstream.

To continue our list, what better way to treat yourself than with our Signature Manicure and Pedicure? Using all-natural nail polishes, including our beloved Dazzle Dry line, we promise a pampering experience that’s as safe as it is indulgent.

Of course, no spa experience would be complete without the perfect products to complement your routine. Our meticulously crafted selection of skincare and body care products are made with clean ingredients, ensuring both your safety and satisfaction. While we recommend steering clear of formulations containing arnica and retinol/retinoids during pregnancy, rest assured that our offerings are designed with your well-being in mind.

By choosing pregnancy-friendly spa treatments and products, you’re not just indulging in self-care – you’re investing in the health and happiness of both you and your little one. But remember, it’s always wise to consult with your healthcare provider before trying any new treatments.

So go ahead, mama-to-be, and treat yourself to the pampering you deserve. Because in this special time of your life, nothing matters more than taking care of you.


5 Hydrating Products to Maintain a Healthy Glow

March 8, 2024

5 hydrating products that help maintain a healthy glow and how we’d use them in our daily routine:

Cosmedix – Purity Balance

Cosmedix Purity Balance is a fabulous oil cleanser that removes negative pore clogging oils while restoring positive hydrating oils that give your skin a glowy boost. The moisturizing agents include argan and olive oils which naturally soothe and condition skin for a dewy soft texture as well as moringa oil that nourishes with radiance-boosting vitamins and fatty acids.

Then we’d double cleanse with

Cosmedix – Gentle Clean

This hydrating cleanser is especially helpful for dry or mature skin because it contains shea butter to provide moisture during our cleansing routine. This specific formulation also includes aloe to help bring down redness and grapefruit peel oil to brighten the skin to achieve that glow.

Next, we’re going to exfoliate with

Facile – The Buzz

This exfoliating masque creates a buzzing sensation on the skin which stimulates blood flow and, utilizing Mandelic and Glycolic acid, helps to exfoliate dull skin with the addition of cranberry seeds to boost with physical exfoliation. This potent AHA & BHA mask is formulated to reveal and refresh your best hydrated skin.

Next, we’ll use

Saint Jane – C Drops

If you want glass skin, look no further. Vitamin C Glow Drops are a powerful resurfacer, each citrus-infused drop is packed with clean actives to transform dull complexions and leave your skin balanced and visibly smoother. This product contains Glycerin which is essential in attracting and retaining your skin’s vital moisture content.


Facile – Dew You

Also known as the drink of water your skin needs. This will de-puff, moisturize, and actually energize your skin with a powerful boost of hydration. This highly concentrated Hyaluronic Acid works to naturally lift and support healthy, happy skin.

3 Tips for Choosing an Effective Eye Cream

June 24, 2019

If Eye Cream isn’t a solid step in your skincare regimen yet, that’s okay. While it’s a good rule of thumb to preventatively incorporate anti-aging products before you need them, it’s never too late to start. 

It can be challenging to navigate the “must-haves” and essential ingredients when shopping for an effective eye cream. We’re proud of each ingredient in our hyperclean formulation, but these three pack the biggest punch in our Eye Cream.

our intention for skincare

February 27, 2019

I’m beyond excited to introduce you to our new skincare line — not only because we’ve been working tirelessly to develop products that are hyperclean and effective but also because I know you (and your skin) will love it as much as I do. We have even more skincare products on the way, but there’s no better place to start than with our first two hydrating heroes: the Intense Hydration Cream and Luxe Face Oil.

I want to share a little bit more on why it’s taken us so long to launch our skincare line. Full disclosure: getting to a point where we were ready to debut these products was exceptionally challenging. It has been a long process of trial and error of trying to refine our formulas so they have an appropriate shelf life and will be just as effective and delightful to use in six to 12 months as they are the day you open the bottle. It also took quite a bit of time and patience to find non-toxic, non-irritating preservatives that keep our products safe and stable. At every point, I wanted to make sure we checked all of our “boxes” while never compromising on a luxurious experience. You should never feel like using a clean, safe alternative to conventional beauty products is less effective or enjoyable.

Most importantly, I’m lucky to work alongside our talented team of estheticians at milk + honey, who have provided us with crucial feedback and expertise throughout the development process. Their hands-on knowledge and daily connection to both the spa and our clients differentiate us from just another product line.

Stay tuned for more skincare product launches in the coming weeks!

#ArtOfTheBath: rise + shine

January 14, 2019

Some mornings are harder than others to get out of bed. Perhaps you stayed up too late exploring all of the Bandersnatch endings or maybe you’re simply not a morning person. Either way, I relate. As a self-proclaimed nightowl, I’ve found that setting routines for the AM can change my perspective in the morning. Waking up early for a yoga or Soulcycle class can be motivating, so I figured why not give the #ArtOfTheBath a shot? So after much research, I present to you #AOTB: rise + shine edition.

#ArtOfTheBath: new year refresh

January 7, 2019

While the new year offers optimism and opportunity, it can also present a lot of pressure. If your Instagram feed is anything like mine, you’re being bombarded with crisp, new activewear, renewed Soulcycle memberships, and lofty expectations for the year ahead. And though I’m all about resolutions, I think everyone could add “being gentle toward myself” to their 2019 list. It’s great to stick to your guns and book that class knowing you’ll have to pay $20 to cancel, but your off-days are just as important for your headspace. That said, I’ve created a refreshing #ArtOfTheBath for your off-days this year. Or even your on-days. If you ask me, weekly bathtime is A-OK as far as resolutions go.
