Locally owned Poplar Creek Spa will offer makeovers and Vitamin C masks, as well as complimentary color matches and free chair massages as part of the spa’s Glo Launch Party and Open House on Thursday, Sept. 19, from 2-7 p.m.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to offer products from GloMinerals to our guests,” said Emily Simmons, owner of Poplar Creek Spa.

“GloMinerals makeup boasts great coverage with broad-spectrum UV protection and antioxidants to fight free radical damage, and their products are embraced by dermatologists and leading skin care professionals.”

Reservations for a Glo makeover or Vitamin C mask can be made in advance for $25, which goes toward the guest’s purchase during the event.

“The benefits of GloMinerals products make this clincial skin care line an excellent choice for our spa guests,” Simmons said. “All of the products used in our spa services are handcrafted in-house, and we use all-natural and organic ingredients that are prepared for our guests the day of their appointment.”

Guests are welcome to visit during the Glo Launch Party without a paid reservation, as the spa will also offer complimentary color matches, free chair or Thai massages, light refreshments and door prizes. Drawings will be held hourly to win door prizes, including a Glo Giveaway Basket; an all-natural product crafted at Poplar Creek Spa; a 60-minute massage; a spa package; and a baked goods package by local baker Elizabeth Bryner.
