With all the hustle and bustle of New York City, it can be hard to find a little respite. So, when we heard about the new express service being offered at the Setai Fifth Avenue’s Auriga Spa and Julien Farel’s JF Express Salon, we booked our appointments and headed on over for a little pampering.
Need a lunch hour pick me up or a quick pampering pit stop before a night out on the town? Try the Setai Fifth Avenue’s 30-minute Natura Bisse facial followed by a 30-minute blow-out, complete with a complimentary glass of wine or champagne.
At the Auriga Spa, choose one of four Natura Bisse facials that can be condensed into a 30-minute express service: “The Diamond Experience Facial” wakes up the senses and provides the skin with an immediate cosmetic face lift with over 30 active ingredients as well as targeted massage. “The Oxygen Awakening Facial” opens the pores, allowing them to breathe. This facial is great for those who have obvious signs of clogged pores due to the toxins and pollutants that we are exposed to on a daily basis. This facial is especially good for frequent travelers or those living in congested cities. “The Specialized Age Defying Facial” works to combat sagging skin, fine lines and dull skin tone. This facial uses face hits that lead to firmer, glowing skin. Finally, “The Carboxi-Express Facial” uses state-of-the-art techniques, which use carbon dioxide to combat signs of aging and instantly revitalize the skin. Complete with a heated bed and warm, cozy robe, this 30-minute facial is pure bliss.
Then head over to the Julien Farel JF Express Salon, for a deep conditioning treatment to boost shine and strengthen our locks followed by a blow out. With a glass of wine in hand, you can sit back, relax and enjoy – knowing your just a lunch hour away from pure bliss in the city that never sleeps.
The express service combination at The Setai Fifth Avenue is $195.
