The first U.S. spa by Decléor, the luxe French skin-care company known for products infused with natural extracts, earns a round of applause for its “gentle and pampering” facials. The Aroma Essential treatment left skin “beyond dewy for two days.” The secret? After drinking a mimosa in the relaxation area, our tester chilled on a heated bed in a softly lit room where, after a firm back rub, a creamy cleanser, an essential oil serum, and a thick, moisturizing balm were massaged into the skin (each application lasted from five to 10 minutes) All facialists are trained to use specific circular strokes and light pinching motions to work products deep into the pores, a technique that’s close to hypnotic. “I could have fallen asleep—it was that relaxing,” said our reporter.
