Delicious- The combination of the best facial and spassage. You leave with a fresh and glowing face and your body feels so hydrated. Love it!
Extreme Dream- This 50 minute service is the perfect amount of time to get you relaxed. It's all about massage. Face,head,arms, hands and feet. It's awesome! The Most Amazing pedicure My feet always look different! Nails look awesome and my feet feel so soft. It's more than a pedicure. Hand and arm massage is an added bonus. I usually fall asleep I get so relaxed!
Revitalash and Revitalash mascara- In just 6 weeks of using Revitalash I noticed a huge difference in my lashes. It made them grow longer and fuller. The mascara is great too. Gives my lashes the volume and never looks clumpy.
Essential Cleansing Solution- A creamy cleanser that nourishes my dry skin removes my makeup and makes my skin feel nice and clean. Skin hydrating booster- I add this in with my moisturizer and it gives me the extra moisture my skin needs. This product hydrates my skin which helps the fine lines and wrinkles look less noticeable.
Intensive Moisture Balance- Use this twice daily to hydrate my skin. Love this moisturizer!
Jojoba oil-Always use this oil daily to moisturize my body and now I use it on my baby too. Great for cradle cap! Works awesome!
What I like to do on my days off: My days off are spent with my husband and daughter. I'm also very fortunate to have my parents and sisters living close by. Love getting together on Sundays for big family dinners!

Alison Jarvis (Retail Goddess)
Why I love working at alayne white spa: I love meeting & talking to people. Many years ago I received my RN license & one of the main reasons for working in this field was so that I could help people & this has continued through my life. Working at Alayne White Spa has helped me achieve this at this time in my life.
What I like to do on my days off: One of my loves is tennis I can no longer play but I love to watch it. Watch out though when watching a match I will not answer the phone or the door & everyone knows not to speak to me. My favorite player is Rafael Nadal & I hope to see him play soon.
Favorite Food: My favourite dinner to cook is a recipe my mother gave to me, chicken Meyers.
Favorite Junk Food: When I have time to bake & I am known for my millionaire shortbread which is a recipe my grandmother gave me many years ago
Ashley Barile (Retail Goddess)
Why I love working at alayne white spa: We are like a family. We work well together and respect one another. Customer service has always been important to me, and I feel Alayne White spas are a perfect '10'. I love that our treatments are unique, with creative names!
Favorite Service: Delicious, because it takes care of both face & body. The 'flow' of the service is super relaxing. Treat yourself to something special: Delicious is it!
I also enjoy The Extreme Dream, a lovely service that focuses on the extremities.
Favorite Products: Skin Smoothing Cream, is my absolute FAVORITE product. I've received several compliments on my skin since I started using it. This medium weight moisturizer is perfect for dry skin & gives me a healthy glow.
What I like to do on my days off: Sleep in! I'm also a huge fan of movies, so I like to watch one when I have the time. When I need some extra R&R, I visit Alayne White Spa for a service

Jan Goldstein (Massage Goddess)
Why I love working at alayne white spa: A couple yrs. ago, I sold my sweet little house in Northampton, MA, left my job of 9+ yrs., and moved (with my 3 crazy and wonderful cats) to Newport to live by the sea. It was a life-long dream I finally brought to fruition. I love the friendly feel of Alayne White Spa. It's great working in an atmosphere where you get to know everyone because they keep coming back! As a massage therapist, I enjoy working with the natural oils/lotions we use in our treatments. I especially love the light rose fragrance of our face oil and our peppermint foot cream. And I love that they are made right here in RI.
Favorite Service: Receiving footwork is one of my favorite indulgences. I'm grateful that some of the best footwork is available at Alayne White. My only complaint is too many other people already know this and it's a challenge to find an opening!
What I like to do on my days off: My favorite thing to do here is walk the beach every morning. I commune w/ the gulls, find beautiful stones/shells and wash away the cares of life w/ the sights, sounds and smells of the sea. It sounds corny but is true. No matter what else the day brings, I always have the ocean
Favorite Food & Junk Food: I actually love lots of foods that are healthy and good like fruits, veggies and chicken. Unfortunately I like to end the meal w/ a sweet or snack on crackers and cheese. As a former baker, it's embarrassing to admit I'd rather eat a dry devil dog (although I don't indulge too often) and down it w/ a cup of coffee rather than have an intricate, sophisticated dessert. I think it's from the days of growing up when my cousin and her mom often visited from Ohio. They'd arrive late at night after a long road trip. My mom would always be sure to have a box of devil dogs for Barb's arrival (her favorite) and we would drink coffee and eat devil dogs and talk all night!
Aurelie Gold (Skin Goddess)
Why I love working at alayne white spa: First we have a wonderful team and it is fantastic to be able to work with people you really enjoy. The spa is also a very peaceful environment to work in and it is definitely a big asset in today's society. But most of all it is incredible to make people happy! It feels so good and right to make people smile, brightly!
The Best Facial You Will Ever Have with the Multivitamin Power Peel, It is delightful! You will experience all that there is during a regular facial! The scalp, face and décolleté massage will bring you to "la la land", even your feet will get to be pampered! The multivitamin peel (that you can add on to any of our treatments) will leave your skin with this amazing beautiful glow and the oatmeal mask will soothe and hydrate your skin to its best!
The Lash Tint: It will take only 30 mn for your eyes to stand out! And you get to relax with an incredible hand massage. From now on for about 4 to 6 weeks your mornings will not be the same.....with no make-up on you will look like yourself in that mirror!
Multivitamin Power Firm: this eye cream is really addicting! Its texture is very silky and will make any concealer application so much easier. Plus it can be applied on your lips as well!
Soothing Eye Make-up Remover: the biggest reason I use this product is that it is alcohol and oil free so very gentle to your eyes. It leaves your lashes mascara free and healthy with agents that help them be stronger!
Super Rich Repair: I have extremely dry skin and it is the only cream that works for me! I adore its texture and it leaves my skin "replenished".
What I like to do on my days off: I love to practice yoga and just relax at home reading a book (mostly in French!).......or decorating the house.
Entertaining is something that is part of me! I enjoy sharing good food, good
conversation and good wine with friends and family.

Gina Aguiar (Foot Goddess)
Why I love working at alayne white spa: I love the people I work with and the environment of the spa. It is a peaceful surrounding and all the clients leave very happy and relaxed. It is nice to make people happy.
Favorite Service: I would have to say the Good old Fashioned Pedicure is my favorite followed by the Cleansing Facial with a Multi-Peel. These are the only two services I get because I would rather perform services then get them.
I love the pedicures from Natalie because she knows to get right to the point and I leave with perfect toes! The cleansing facials are perfect for me because it is quick and to the point.
Favorite Products: I would have to say the Sheer Tint Moisture Medium. I love how it moisturizes and gives me a little color at the same time. I also love to mix it with my Skin Smoothing Cream in the winter.
What I like to do on my days off: I like to go shopping and spend time with my husband, Vic or friends on my days off but reality kicks in and I clean, laundry, grocery shop and pay bills.
Daily Beauty Routine:
AM-take a shower, wash my face with dermalogica ultra calming cleanser or skin prep scrub, brush my teeth. 20 minutes pm-brush teeth and tissue off my face with ultra calming cleanser. 10 minutes

Kerry Santerre (Trainer/Manager Goddess)
Why I love working at alayne white spa: I truly love the ladies who work at the spa. Everyone gets along so well and makes my job so easy. Alayne has taught me so much about business and leadership and made me feel I am an intricate part of the team.
Delicious-I love this service because it incorporates The Best Facial you will Ever have and The Spassage which are my two favorite services! What better way to spend 2 ½ hours!
Super Rich Repair-I love this heavy weight moisturizer, as I have really dry skin and it hydrates and doesn’t make me feel greasy
What I like to do on my days off: On a perfect day off I would sleep late and watch movies on the couch all day…but my conscience always gets the best of me and I end up cleaning and doing laundry instead!
Daily Beauty Routine:
AM-splash my face with warm water, tone with Antioxidant Hydramist, moisturize with Super rich.
PM-Wash with Daily Microfoliant tone and moisturize again

Jenna Pineau (Skin Goddess)
Why I love working at alayne white spa:
It’s a positive work environment that has an A+ reputation for how they treat their clients and their employees. I feel so lucky everyday to work with such an amazing group of intelligent and upbeat women. There is always opportunity to grow at the spa and alayne encourages everyone to do so. It feels good to know that I have the ability to make a person’s day better than it was before they walked through the doors.
The Best Facial- For me, the Best Facial is just the right amount of time. It’s long enough to allow me to completely relax. I LOVE the scalp massage and the foot massage.
Beyond Belief Pedicure- This is a service I usually get once or twice a year. The first time I had this service I went in expecting to get a nice relaxing pedicure. I was in that state of dreaming and barely awake for most of the service. At one point I snorted and woke myself up. Being a technician here for almost 7 years I know that it isn’t unusual for someone to snore, so I laughed briefly to myself and went right back into the zone. There are so many warm treats and surprises I won’t mention because they feel that much better when you are least expecting them. I always suggest this as a gift for someone who gets pedicures on a regular basis because they are always blown away.
Super Rich- The best moisturizer for drier skin and people concerned with aging. Great for any type of skin including sensitive as it doesn’t irritate your skin. This product delivers results within one use and revives a tired face. I can NOT live without this product!!
Skin Renewal Booster- Another product that gives noticeable results within one use. It’s easy to use because it’s a leave on exfoliant. I love to use this at night before I go out because it gives my skin such an amazing glow.
What I like to do on my days off: I love to run! I also love to go for walks with my son and my dog. Dinner with the husband is always nice as well. Catch up with family.
Daily Beauty Routine: Take a shower (exfoliate my face in the shower), brush my hair, throw it up in a messy bun, apply moisturizer, apply foundation, blush, luminizer, eyeliner, mascara, and gloss. No longer than 3 minutes to apply my makeup.
Favorite Food: Turkey Dinner and Salmon
Favorite Place to Eat: The Sunnyside in Warren and Heminway’s in Providence.
Favorite Junk Food: A good gourmet or homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie.
My name is Alayne White and I am the proprietress of Alayne White Spas located in Bristol and Providence. I am so proud to be a business owner representing and industry that puts more women in business that any other industry - the spa industry. 98%.
Owning a business as a woman presents all kinds of interesting dynamics. One of the most common questions I get from the many women I come in contact with is How do you do it all? YIKES! Is this the image that I am setting for the women out there? When I hear that fateful question I feel like I should apologize. After all, what is 'doing it all' and at what cost does that image do to us as women in this world?
Before we get started, I have a simple exercise for you to do:
