Glen Ivy Hot Springs – Corona, CA

If you watched  this video, you probably heard me talk about taking my husband for a spa date for his birthday. This might sound a little unusual for guys but he really enjoyed it (and there were actually tons of couples there together, too). We went to Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona, CA and enjoyed the resort along with a couple treatments, as well. It was so nice to unwind, take a break from the craziness of Los Angeles, get away from the traffic, work, our hectic schedules and most of all, our phones 🙂 lol. The only electronic device I kept with us was my trusty old Waterproof Canon Powershot D10 (aka, the camera I used to use for all my blog posts back in the day!)

Notice anything about these pictures? I’m wearing makeup! Well, just eyeliner and mascara. I used my trusty MAC Liquidlast liner and MAC Zoom Waterfast Lash Mascara – both are completely waterproof and stayed on the entire time through saline pools, mud baths, mineral pools, everything!! I love them, I used the same eyeliner on a trip a few years back to Cabo and fell in love with it’s staying power. If you’re looking for eye makeup that will withstand the power of weather, tears, pools  etc. These are them.

After jumping in the mineral pools and relished in Club Mud pictured above, we enjoyed Stress Relieving Massages, soaked in the saline pools and then headed over to The Grotto for an ultra moisturizing treatment, pictured below.

We absolutely loved these treatments! The Grotto was amazing – you take this elevator down to a man made cave where they slather your body with a light green body moisturizer of aloe vera, shea butter, coconut oil, and other beneficial elements. Then you get to relax in the warm Hydrating Chamber while your skin soaks in the rich moisturizer. Afterwards, you rinse off in their Granite Showers, relax in the Cool Mist Chamber and get to enjoy a variety of teas and crisp green apples. It’s perfect because all the other treatments and amenities detox your skin & body but that means they are also very drying so enjoying The Grotto moisturizing treatment is perfect afterwards to re-hydrate!

The entire day was so much fun. I highly recommend coming here for anyone in Southern California looking for a relaxing day trip or anyone visiting socal 😉 We definitely look forward to coming back next time we need to get away from the city… which could really be every weekend lol.

I hope you liked this post, a little change from my usual editorial posts. Wishing you all an amazing weekend!

    How do you manage to look so good with mud all over? This is a spa day that my hubs would love as well. And the pasta lunch looks yummy.
