Nothing Beats a Face Massage on a Friday Afternoon

Yes, I meant "Face Massage" -- it's unlike any other facial I've every had, and I'm completely addicted to it. Unlike other facials, where my skin is poked and prodded and I end up looking like I've come down with some rare disease because I'm so blotchy, this hour-long massage leaves me refreshed and glowing.  You can live vicariously through me here:

Tucked away on the basement floor of Bergdorf Goodman in NYC is the cosmetics line Cle de Peau Beaute, a line of Shisheido.  There is a beautiful back room, very private, and complete with a heated massage table.  Nina greets me and gives me a robe to change into, then I lie down on the massage bed and she covers me with blankets.  Relaxing instrumental music plays in the background, and warm steam gently blows on my skin while the massage bed warms be from below. For the next hour, Nina gently massages various oils and creams into my face, neck and shoulders. Towards the end she places a cool mask on my face and for 10 minutes I doze off. I come back up with some final massaging to remove mask residue and prepare my face to go back into the real world.

Dressed again, and with a bottle of water in hand, I leave the mini-sanctuary and yes, I book an appointment for next month. It's wonderful to have something to look forward to!
