Éminence skincare products grown in the well-exfoliated fields of Hungary swathe dry and damaged dermises in an organic blend of face-saving sustenance. Pure Skin Botanica's staff uses the results of a personal skincare analysis to ensure that each facial is a customized creation, selecting the finest Éminence toners and moisturizers, designed to detoxify and oxygenate even sensitive skin. The one-hour facial pays exceptional attention to your skin’s needs and birthday wishes, as potions diluted with tea, fruit juice, or sparkling water replenish cheeks and foreheads with a burst of hydration. Made with organic ingredients, the unique facial creams reflect the soft colors of their fruit and veggie forebears and are just as edible, eliminating the need for a pre-facial snack. The facial concludes with a relaxing shoulder and neck massage that smoothly unties tense knots and reconfigures spinal joysticks to factory settings.
Captained by skincare aficionado Katie Arendt, the aestheticians at About Face restore skin's youthful radiance with diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments and Dermalogica products. To begin the face-refurbishing process, an aesthetician applies a deep-cleansing treatment before a diamond-tip wand sashays up and down epidermal real estate, suctioning away dead cells and resurfacing skin. To up the aesthetic ante, extractions evict troublesome blemishes, and a massage kneads away facial tension. Guests then yield their nose and cheek placeholders to a nourishing mask and moisturizer, which hydrate patches of skin made flaky by nuzzling sandpaper cutouts of Hollywood hunks. The 70-minute session reveals a freshly glowing face with smoothed fine lines, reduced acne damage, and cheeks softer than a bunny that has devoured its weight in marshmallows.
