I recently went to a gorgeous spa with an equally gorgeous locker room. The marble vanity was topped with lavish olive oil soaps, creamy body lotions, and Dead Sea salt scrubs. And the array also included high-wattage blow-dryers and a small army of combs and hairbrushes. It was like a beauty wonderland. I was impressed—until I headed to the showers.
In place of the luxurious products I expected, there were dispensers of generic body wash, shampoo, and conditioner. Also, there was no face wash, which is a personal pet peeve. (The first thing I want to do after a workout or an oily massage is to clean my face. Every locker room should provide face wash. Just in case you’re listening, locker room product buyers!) I went from being awestruck to disappointed. So fine, I used their no-name products, and as expected, I walked out of there with my thick hair in a fluffy knot and my skin as dry and tight as a drum.
The experience made me realize how important spa and gym beauty products really are—and being a beauty junkie who takes these things very seriously, it made me want to bring my own products or shower at home. Of course, not all showers are so depressing. Recently, Crunch partnered with Bliss spa to upgrade its arsenal of products. Now, select locations will have showers stocked with Bliss’s Lemon + Sage line. Can I switch my gym membership now?
