From chamomile cleansing lotion to honey-almond scrub, a fleet of botanical products find themselves the star at Olga’s Beauty Spa. Licensed aesthetician and manicurist Olga Gonzalez incorporates them into her facials, body wraps, and mani-pedis. Several products work in tandem to refresh faces, such as the fruit-extract buffing crème that exfoliates away dirt and the ginseng mineral toner that shrinks pores.
At Silhouette Organic Beauty Lounge, guests enjoy a completely organic experience. Along with the organic hair and skincare products—many of which are also vegan, gluten-free, or wheat-free—the beauty lounge also provides local, organic teas for guests. The spa even features LED lighting, which is softer on the eyes than fluorescent lighting or interrogations done with the spotlights used to illuminate the space shuttle at night.
While the choice of beauty services can vary widely—from a keratin treatment to lash extensions or a mani-pedi—there's a common purpose in all of them. The staff aims to have guests leave feeling refreshed and beautiful, which is easier to guarantee since there are no harmful chemicals used in the services.

E.B. White once dubbed the martini "the elixir of quietude." One might dub Martini Spa "the emporium of quietude," as the main priority of the staff is to make clients feel at home as they enjoy peace, quiet, and pampering services custom-tailored to their needs. Massages help to work out tension from both body and face, and waxing sessions unveil silky-smooth skin during sessions that are less serene but equally sigh-inducing. Those hoping to put some extra power behind their wink can seek out the spa's aestheticians, who lengthen fringe with eyelash extensions. Nail technicians refine fingertips and toe-tips with coats of long-lasting Shellac polish or take a few extra minutes to swathe nails in French style with miniature portraits of Gérard Depardieu.
