Founder:

Shannon Smyth: Shannon launched A Girl's Gotta Spa! ®  in 2005 to give women (mainly moms) straightforward reviews when they are short on time or simply hiding in the bathroom for some sanity. Shannon loves bath and body products and a good hair cut (especially if it can make her look younger.)

Shannon firmly believes that You Deserve to Be Pampered and launched a bespoke cruelty free bath and body line to promote this mission. Your wellness should be a priority, so carve out some me time! You can see product offerings here www.agirlsgottaspa.com/store
