Bordered by rose bushes and stone walls, this 11,000 square foot spa (located in a food-driven resort just outside Burlington) feels like a warm, well-appointed New England home. The facial itself—with a blissful 15 minute neck and shoulder massage—focuses on Barbar organic products, and gets its name from the line’s use of glacial water (thought to be especially pure) in products like a gentle milk exfoliator. But the key ingredient in all the scrubbing, moisturizing and massaging turns out to be Vitamin C. “The products used in the facial are loaded with it, and even after one service your skin looks brighter,” explains spa director Karen Smegal.
