$39 for a Custom Facial with a Glycolic Peel and 30-Minute Upper-Body Massage ($105 Value)
Aesthetician Heather Gimlin uses rotating facial brushes to deeply cleanse pores, assisted by steam and hot towels. A gentle vacuum promotes circulation and cell regeneration before a facial massage dispels muscular tension. Next, she customizes a mask for her client’s skin type and concludes the service with a moisturizer. After the facial, Heather coats skin in a glycolic peel, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and mild acne scars while unclogging pores and improving chronically dry skin. After the facial, a 30-minute neck and shoulder massage exiles any lingering stress.
Heather Gimlin at Gossip in the City
Part salon, part spa, and part photography studio, Gossip in the City is manned by three teams of specialists adept in their fields. Salon-goers choose from hair- and nailcare menus or sit back as their skin is dusted with makeup and spray tan dispatched by a precise airbrush. Spa services include facials and peels, and for whole-body pampering, guests opt for hot-stone massages and all-over salt scrubs. The studio’s skilled photographers capture newly glamorous looks during photo shoots, sending clients home with 8"x10", 5"x7", and wallet-sized portraits.
