The Beauty Mark's experienced technicians bestow clients with beach-reminiscent glows during 20-minute airbrush-tanning sessions. After meeting with a spray professional to discuss color options and favorite tan-line haikus, clients retreat to a secluded area for a hand-applied mist of St. Tropez's scented formula. The specialized serums deepen skin tone and color without fading into an unnatural orange tint, gifting bearers a sun-kissed bronze sans UV-ray exposure and an actual kiss from the sun.
Ellen and Mark Comerford started Core de Vie to offer clients creative approaches to fitness that combine strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular exercise. For example, their popular Gyrotonic classes use a Gyrotonic machine, which provides a low-impact workout thanks to a system of pulleys and wheels that would make Archimedes proud. Another specialized piece of equipment, their reformers provide added resistance to muscles during Pilates classes, and other classes take advantage of vibrational plates and a CrossCore pulley system.
Beyond exercises, Core de Vie also helps clients relax with a spa, where massage therapists unravel knotted muscles in candlelit rooms and aestheticians perform facials. After pampering treatments or classes, guests can peruse the boutique?s supply of exercise clothes and skincare products.
Fair-pelted customers choose from a bevy of sun-mirroring options inside the tanning oasis. Amid the interior’s shimmering gold tiles, guests enter Level 1–5 UV beds, inspiring skin to cultivate a bronze hue of its own. Like hand-sculpting one’s own monogrammed towels from marble, spray tanning at bosTAN is a customized process. A technician holds the airbrush tool, releasing the spray exactly where each part of the skin needs it for more effective coverage than a booth-dispatched mist can achieve.
