I vaguely recall a time when I would spend a stray hour or two on the weekends in any old massage place with a neon foot in the window.
Now that I don’t have so much time on my hands, I try to get the most out of any beauty experience. Pedicure: can I get fries with that? When it comes to facials, yes, I like to leave glowing … but total relaxation is the end goal.
So I was in bliss this weekend at the new Cecilia Wong Skincare location in the Flatiron. Cecilia’s approach is non-invasive, holistic and completely natural. And by holistic, we mean detoxifragalistic and massagetastic.
I had an Oxygen Facial ($175), which included: cleansing, a herb peel treatment, lymphatic drainage and acupressure massage, extractions, a Vitamin C mask, neck and shoulder massage, a Hyperbaric Oxygen Spray session infused with Cecilia’s cult Reviving Black Currant Serum and …
… a head massage. I love my liiiife.
Cecilia is located right near both Shake Shack and Hill Country Chicken, so you can really make a date out of it. A date with yourself. I left smelling like roses and came home smelling like fried chicken - awesome.
If you’re not in NYC, you can get the essence of Cecilia in a bottle below. Massage not included.
Does this: Hydrates, revives and regenerates all skin types while calming skin and controlling oil (+ smells amazing).
Is this: Reviving Black Currant Serum
Get this: Above, or at Cecilia Wong’s salon
