Wondering where the ultimate luxury spa getaway is in Charleston? The Woodhouse Day Spa in Mt. Pleasant is THE place you want to get pampered. Offering over 70 different treatments from facials, massages, body scrubs, manis and pedis and the state of the art Vichy shower. With Valentine’s day right around the corner this is an obvious gift for your loved one or if you want to get spoiled too they’re offering seasonal packages for couples like the “Date Night” series.
Other than escaping to a blissful retreat at Woodhouse, you can shop their boutique. Owner Kimberly Powell seeks out the best skincare products and accessories while highlighting local brands. I thought I knew almost every locally made brand out there, but I was excited to discover a few I’ve never heard of before.
Deep Steep makes their natural bath and body products in Johns Island and everything is Non-GMO, Gluten-free, Vegan and Cruelty Free. The line spans from shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, body oil, and so much more. I can’t wait to sample all of them because the scent is heavenly!
Maya Chia is one of my favorite local skincare brand, and they’re also based right here in Charleston. Pretty much all of their products are made with chia seed oil and I am obsessed with the new highlighting serum. I’ve been wearing it everyday on my cheekbones for that subtle glow.
Other than a wide variety of skincare and beauty products to spoil yourself or that special someone, Woodhouse carries the Design Her book by local author Julianne Taylor of Taylor Burke Home. Filled with stories of female entrepreneurs in interior design, this book is an inspirational read and beautiful collection of design.
This shark tooth necklace is by Foxy Fossils, local designer Casey Danielle finds real fossils all over the lowcountry and turns them into wearable accessories. Each piece is one of a kind and is incredibly affordable. The earrings start at $29, so it’s easy to collect more than a few pieces and layer the necklaces.
Kimberly Powell, has recently launched her candle line 1670 Charlestowne candle set which comes with a keepsake Sweetgrass basket. Each basket-and-candle set is hand-numbered and signed by the basket weaver and candle designers. The scent is a combination of fresh hay, cut grass, water lily, cucumber, lotus, anemone petals and blond wood. Kimberly is one of the most generous philanthropists in Charleston so it’s natural that a percentage of the sales of the Sweetgrass-fragrance 1670 Charlestowne products are donated to charities that support Lowcountry youth culture and arts programs.
She also carries Taxidermy accessories, which are an all time favorite in Charleston and beyond. I love spreading the word on great places to shop and Woodhouse Day Spa has the perfect gifts for Valentine’s Day. Pair that with an amazing spa experience and your partner will be forever grateful!
