$89 for Spa Package ($242 Value)
The spa package begins with a white ginseng detox body wrap. After the herbal formula is applied, a sauna blanket warms the body for 20 minutes. Then, a rain shower rinses the body for a 25-minute massage. The anti-aging facial sequence begins with a date and honey exfoliation with steam, followed by a honeysuckle refining vegetal peel that exfoliates dead skin. Next, a chemical-free skin-lightening treatment balances skin tone, and a violet-leaf anti-aging eye treatment with a cool stone massage makes eyes look bright and refreshed. Finally, an organic sun diffuser penetrates skin and guards it against harmful UV exposure.
Elixir Organic Spa
According to Lynn Shulman, founder of Elixir Organic Spa, "Our products are so pure, you can literally eat them." Aside from slathering the spa’s food-grade products on her face and morning toast, Shulman makes a concerted effort to bust myths about food and product labels. For instance, she says that “many products on the market are falsely labelled as ‘natural’ or ‘organic’” when they’re really packed with chemicals and toxins. This realization led her to develop a house brand of synthetic-free beauty products. Stockpiled alongside products from like-minded artisans, Elixir Organic Spa’s rinses, scrubs, and lotions permeate spa services such as the exfoliating fig enzyme facial.
