BEAUTY BLACK BOOK 2016: SALONS & SPAS WORTH THE SPLURGE!
If a highly skilled pro making your complexion her sole focus for two hours sounds like nirvana, sprint to this sunny studio run by a former Kate Somerville aesthetician. Without even a receptionist to interfere with your one-on-one connection, you’ll first consult with owner Lili Mineni. After cleansing and exfoliation with an ultrasound machine, our tester experienced her favorite part of the Oxygen Face Spa facial: an oxygen spray infused with a concentrated vitamin C serum “to help reinforce the cell walls and smooth lines,” Mineni says. The pro upstaged the cool finishing mist with a shoulder massage during the final hyaluronic-acid mask.
