Bey I went for the organic Eminence Facial ($90). My esthetician Hillary led me to a cozy little private room. Here, I relaxed under a warm sheet on a comfy table, listening to soothing music while Hillary massaged, exfoliated, and moisturized my face with Eminence products — a Hungarian line made using organically-grown herbs, fruits, and veggies. My face got the most thorough extraction I’ve ever gotten — and my hands, feet, and shoulders all received great mini-massages during the hour-long treatment.
Hillary also answered all sorts of skin care questions I had and gave me some tips (I’ve been breaking out a lot with the weather changes). Afterwards, my face was fresh and glowy — if a little reddish from the extraction. I browsed through the boutique store up front, which offers Eminence products, soy wax candles, essential oils, among other eco-friendly goodies, then biked home relaxed and happy and ready for spring.
