My First HydraFacial (Alda Aesthetics)

Hi, guys! Happy FRIDAY to you!

I’m pumped that the weekend is just about here. We actually don’t have a ton of plans, but I’m looking forward to detaching from my laptop for a few days. I feel like I’ve had a lot of computer time this week. Although, I was able to escape for a facial yesterday afternoon, which was quite amazing. It was a nice way to break up the day, and I looked forward to it all week. I’ll share details in a second, but, first, let me recap my morning so far.

Breakfast was overnight oats with a big scoop of Teddie peanut butter (obviously). This batch was especially delicious and nutritious because I mixed the oats with one of Quinn’s pouches (banana-blueberry).

Somehow, overnight oats just got even easier – and more nutritious! The options are endless with fruit + veggie pouches! Along with the pouch, I added a teaspoon of chia seeds and a splash of almond milk, and they turned out perfectly!

We’re getting a crazy rain storm (“Quinn”) in southern Massachusetts today, and we made Murphy go out in it this morning. He was not pleased. Look at that face.

Ok, so let me tell you about my facial! The nice women of Alda Aesthetics invited me in for a complimentary facial. They’re local (right off route 53 in Hanover) and just opened their business two years ago, so I was more than happy to check out their space and see what they had to offer. Their services include all sorts of facials, advanced treatments (HydraFacials, lasers, peels, Dermaplaning), microblading, lash extensions, and more.

The staff was super-friendly and the treatment rooms were some of the prettiest I’ve ever seen – especially for a medical spa!

The HydraFacial was aaaaaamazing. I highly recommend it and know I’ll be back to Alda for another one. The HydraFacial is basically the best of every facial in one treatment. It addresses a ton of skincare issues at once, including fine lines, wrinkles, elasticity, firmness, even tone, texture, brown spots, enlarged pores, clogging, and more. Even Mal (who never notices anything beauty-related) made a comment about how nice my skin looked last night, so it’s definitely an effective treatment!

It was so nice to meet these lovely ladies – definitely check out Alda if you live in the area! 🙂

Question of the Day

When was the last time you had a facial? What’s your favorite kind of facial?



  1. I’ve had a few Hydra facials and I always enjoy them, time for another one! I also love a good chemical peel but hate the down time! God knows I need something to help with all these hormonal changes!!

  2. OMG, now I want a facial! I love facials but it has probably been eight years since I’ve had one. I actually find them more relaxing than massages. Wish I lives in the area and could check out Alda.

  3. I’ve actually NEVER had a facial before! But I do like to do masks and things at home, which I think I need to do because my skin is NOT happy this week…

  4. I love HydraFacials! I also love Oxygen facials and dermaplaning. Such a good feeling of having clean skin!
