Lina M.'s natural, handmade soaps, soaks, salts, scrubs, and creams are whipped up weekly in small batches to ensure that skin-parched patrons receive the freshest products possible. Products tickle the nose's tongue's taste buds with light aromatics such as Oasis, a clean, summery fragrance, or signature scent Lina, a feminine bouquet of wisteria and lilac. The healthful bath brigade includes a 4-ounce honey and crème bath and facial bar made with goat's milk, oatmeal, natural raw honey, shea butter, and olive and aloe vera oil ($7) to moisturize a whole soul-sack from top to toe, whereas 1-ounce Shea to Go travel tins provide easy access to concentrated dollops of creamy African shea butter for scratchy, dry patches. Like a spork, the mineral bubble bath salt ($7) combines the form and function of two essential wares—the skin-softening salt soak and the frothy, prophetic nature of a cauldron's worth of bubble bath. With all items at $7.98 or less, Lina M.'s brand of wholesome luxury is as affordable as it is indulgent.
At Ten Over Ten by Kim, owner Kimberly Christen imparts a sense of subtle sophistication to everything she touches, from her designer West Elm manicure table and the modern upholstered pedicure chair gracing her station to her hand-selected Deborah Lippmann products. She enhances her signature manicures with a light hand and arm massage and a light coat of Deborah Lippmann Rich Girl moisturizing cream. She begins her signature pedicures with a consultation before sloughing away dull skin with a foot scrub and finishing off each nailcare session with brushstrokes of Deborah Lippmann nail lacquer, which is free of toluene, formaldehyde, mayonnaise, and other harmful chemicals. Before appointments, clients may recline on a designer white sofa and photosynthesize while soaking in the natural sunlight streaming in through the large windows.
