Burke Williams Introduces the Enhanced Nourishing Facial! Giveaway Opportunity!


Burke Williams Day Spa is pleased to introduce the new enhanced Nourishing Facial now available at all spa locations. The service is a fresh take on the classic Nourishing Facial that incorporates a new science that promotes dermal building, collagen production and hydration to restore youthful, beautiful skin.


The Nourishing Facial restores intense hydration and replenishes vital skin nutrients, resulting in an improved skin tone and texture. Infusing an inviting and fresh blend of tangy citrus extracts and sweet, powdery lavender flowers, this facial blends nature and science for optimal results.


The facial includes a customized application of a unique skin serum that nourishes, soothes and hydrates. This restoring dermal-filling serum uses moisture absorbing nutrients, anti-wrinkle peptides and a powerful Hyaluronic Acid to target and smooth out wrinkles and restore suppleness and hydration to the skin. Estheticians target the serum’s application to focus on the most bothersome areas of fine lines and dehydration. The skin’s moisture levels are raised to fill-in furrows, plump up tissues and tone-down age lines. The final layer of the facial is a soothing Lavender Rosemary mask for extra hydration that leaves the skin nourished and firm. The customized serum and mask applications combined with an ultra-nourishing and lifting facial massage restore vital nutrients to the skin while stimulating collagen production.


The new enhanced Nourishing Facial is currently available at all Burke Williams Day Spa locations starting at just $169 for an 80-minute service. Experience a Burke Williams near you and indulge, regenerate and relax with a signature treatment or custom membership program catered just for you.

I had the opportunity to escape to Burke Williams Day Spa in Torrance last week. I say escape, because you really feel like you are completely out of the South Bay the moment you walk in to this Spa! I was so in need of an afternoon to relax, and that is exactly what I did! I really enjoyed the spa facilities such as the jacuzzi and steam room and well..just the “quiet.” The customer service is just amazing and I am still trying to find out how they make their water with fruit taste so good! I add lemons and or oranges to my water at home and it just doesn’t quite taste the same! 

Now, for the Nourishing Facial! This is just amazing! I really don’t have any other words to describe it! But, I will try! It’s relaxing and left my skin feeling amazing and so hydrated! I can honestly say this was one of the best facials I have ever had! It really is designed just for your skin and my skin felt wonderful. I absolutely loved this facial and my entire afternoon at Burke Williams Day Spa.

So, who is in need of a day at the Spa? We have teamed up with our friends at Burke Williams Day Spa to offer two readers a Spa Pass!  Spa Passes welcome guests to enjoy any Burke Williams spa facilities (the Jacuzzi is the best!) complimentary on three occasions.
