My best friend and I enjoyed a couples massage in a private suite, sauna, steam and spa lunch over several hours, followed by a walk on the grounds and a stroll on the beach.  Our best full spa day in the Jacksonville area.

It was particularly nice to leave the spa feeling lighter than air and be able to shop and dine in a lovely shopping center afterward.  This is now my go-to spa for massage because I’m an avid tennis and golf player and am constantly sore, it seems like.   I always am put to rights after a visit here. Plus, I appreciated that my therapist, Kathleen, engaged in no aggressive sales-pitch for products or services.  As one who enjoys treatments twice a month on average, the constant pressure to spend on products can negate the healing I seek in the first place.

bluemercury Spa
4742 River City Drive, Jacksonville

Our readers nominated and voted bluemercury Apothecary and Spa in the St John’s Shopping Center as their favorite spa store and the best spa for aesthetics.

bluemercury® is a national apothecary and spa service chain with a boutique and spa services in select locations.  Our readers raved over the high end and every day selection of beauty and spa products and the affordable aesthetic services, particularly the brow and wax services, which received highest marks.

Best Brow Design and Waxing.  This is the first time our team of two reviewers ever visited two spas in the same shopping center for reviews, so we alternated our aesthetic services several months apart.  We both favored the waxing and brow aesthetics at bluemercury.

Marilyn Monroe Nail Lounge
150 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville

Marilyn Monroe Spas and Nail Lounges are fun, vibrant, luxury and accessible in one fell swoop.  Our readers love the nail lounges and locations with additional services, like this one.  In addition to manicures and pedicures, guests at the Jacksonville Nail Salon can also enjoy facials and a massage in a private treatment room. The manicures and pedicures in this location got highest marks for Jacksonville.

I confess I used to be patron of a so-called chop shop.  In fast, out fast, inexpensive pedicures and manicures.  I knew they used blades and things they were not supposed to, but I thought this was actually a plus — I needed that extra help and thought the regulations and such were a bunch of hooey.  I thought spa pedicures were over-priced until I was asked the simple question: “Why do you value your health so little?  Is saving $10 worth loosing a nail, a toe, or worse?”  NO.   I went to the Marilyn Monroe Nail Lounge, plus 3 others, in a four (4) month period.   This Nail Lounge was the cleanest, with the most attention to regulations and details, and the aesthetics of my mani and pedi were clearly the best.  I got many compliments on my improved look, the work lasted longer, my feet and heels look better and don’t need blades, and I realized I’d actually been throwing money away for a long time.  Silly.  This is my regular nail salon, now. Thank you.
