Spa Gifts from the Boutique at the Senator
Some of the many great products in our Boutique include…
Jurlique: In addition to several offered spa services at the Senator Spa which include the use of Jurlique skin care, we also showcase Jurlique in our spa boutique for purchase. As the only authorized retailer in Augusta and one of only two accredited retailers in the state of Maine, the Senator Spa takes great pride in offering this natural product, whose mission is to provide the purest, most effective skin care.
Founded in Australia in 1985 and currently a spa industry leader, Jurlique products start with potent blends extracted from the herbs and flowers grown on their own organic and biodynamic farm in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia. While harnessing the power of nature to create incredibly effective products, Jurlique’s ingredients are approximately 95% natural and still striving for higher. In 25 years, Jurlique has grown to include hundreds of products but the vision behind it remains the same. At the heart of every product is a potent blend of herbs and flowers brought to life in specific formulas and delivered to your skin. Many of these botanicals are hand grown and tended on their 153-acre farm in South Australia. Jurlique scientists balance their formulas with the finest, most potent, biodynamic, organic and natural ingredients sourced the world over—ingredients which meet Jurlique’s exacting standards. From farm to bottle, they are uniquely positioned to ensure the highest efficacy and optimum quality in products and their facilities assure that Jurlique sources the most up-to-date natural technologies and ingredients to develop the highest quality product, thoroughly tested for maximum results with minimal irritations.
As Jurlique continues to drive the combination of science and nature through cutting-edge innovation and remain at the forefront in the development of advanced, high-performance skin care, the Senator will continue to present this beautiful and effective product to our guests.
Jane Iredale: The Senator Spa is proud to carry the Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetic line for both professional application and home care recommendation and use.
The most beautiful cosmetic you can wear is a healthy skin. That’s why everything Jane Iredale develops is a true extension of skin care. Jane Iredale makeup is not just a refinement of conventional makeup; it’s a new technology. It’s so effective, it is recommended by plastic surgeons, dermatologists and skin care professionals. Here at the Senator, our very own skin care professionals and team of spa associates completely support Jane Iredale and its benefits.
Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics are non-comedogenic, in other words, they do not block pores. Instead, the mineral particles form a protective barrier on the skin and allow it to breathe and function normally. This protective barrier also traps environmental pollutants. Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics act as anti-inflammatories and as anti-microbials, and are consistently tested to achieve their non-comedogenic properties. This attention to detail is why this cosmetic line has received so many testimonials from acne patients claiming an improvement with their skin since using Jane Iredale. The only oils used in Iredale formulas are in products that are defined for conditioning the skin – such as the under-eye concealer and lip products.
All Jane Iredale products provide protection from both UVA and UVB rays and are formulated with chemical-free sunscreen actives. The mineral sunscreen actives, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, provide instant, Broad Spectrum, Water Resistant 40 Minutes and sun protection.
Allergies and sensitivities usually occur because of ingredients that cause irritation to the skin. Reactions are particularly common in skins that have been compromised in some fashion through, for example, a weakened immune system, sun damage, chemical peels, laser resurfacing, etc. Substances that most commonly cause these sensitivities are chemical preservatives, chemical dyes (usually labeled as FD&C), perfume and alcohol. Jane Iredale makeup contains none of these sensitizers. In fact, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are anti-inflammatories and may help calm the skin. All of the Iredale products have undergone sensitivity testing.
Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics produce fast, weightless coverage because of its concentrated pigment. Only a light application with a brush or a sponge can provide coverage that would normally take three products to achieve. First-time wearers typically use too much because they are used to cosmetics with fillers, and not a lot of “pay-off.” With Jane Iredale Mineral makeup, less is more. Iredale pigments are made from only micronized minerals and because the minerals are concentrated pigment, they give complete coverage. The result of use should look sheer and luminescent and feel weightless.

Ambre Blends is an independent, women-owned business which has been producing high-quality, organic body products since 2001. Ambre Blends products are available here at the Senator Spa Boutique in four delicate, all-natural essences and are worn by both women and men. All Ambre products are made by hand with 100% pure and natural vegan ingredients from all over the world. Amber oil has been used for centuries for its medicinal and aphrodisiac qualities. The blending of amber oil, the primary ingredient in all Ambre Blends products, with other organic essential oils creates Ambre Essence. Once activated by the body’s warmth, our essences produce a unique, long lasting, individual fragrance that exquisitely compliments one’s own natural chemistry. Ambre Blends selects only the finest, organic ingredients to soothe your mind and protect your well-being. The mix of these ingredients produces a clean, sensual and addictive essence which develops a unique scent on each wearer.
Because Ambre Blends products are made with pure, organic ingredients, additionally wearing synthetic body products, which contain chemicals, preservatives and fillers, will compromise the integrity and benefits of Ambre Blends products. For this reason, over the past ten years, Ambre Blends has expanded its product line to include body creams, pure olive oil soaps, spritzers, skin tonics & more to cover all our your body care needs.
All Ambre Blends products come in one of our four uniquely designed essences and are designed to be worn together. Lovers of Ambre Blends products have always enjoyed alternating or layering our products with one another, so try our multiple scents and mix them up!
