Faina European Day Spa

New Yorkers have nothing but good things to say about this midtown haven’s facials, so book a Microdermabrasion option and bring the life back to your hide. If you really need to unwind and cater to the knots in your back, you can’t go wrong with the Deep Tissue Tension Tamer massage or a full body massage paired with either a lavender or vanilla orange body scrub. 

Hell's Kitchen

KUR Skin Lab

This luxurious spa wants to make you feel like a queen or king. Schedule your spot for the Ideal Therapeutic massage with your choice of Swedish, deep tissue, sports or pre-natal. The customized beard facial for the fellas is also highly recommended.

Midtown East

L’Institut Sothys New York Spa

Winter was likely super-harsh and drying for your mug. Luckily, you can transform your hide thanks to the facials offered at this skin spa. Try either a seasonal spring facial (50min) which uses fresh ingredients from fruits and flowers or try a refreshing European facial for all skin types (50min).

Midtown West

Skn Spa

If your skin is just not up to par with Beyoncé’s flawless glow, you need a session with one of the skin-specialists at this quality spa. For $50, you can nab a customized facial, which will target your mug’s specific problems. If you want to remove some knots and relieve your back muscles, book the 50min lavender aromatherapy massage. 

Hell's Kitchen

Smooth Synergy Cosmedical Spa

If you want a super-smooth and flawless complexion, you’ve come to the right place. Book a Black Charcoal Bubble Facial to remove any toxins from the last few months or a Gold and Silver Sculpt Facial to increase your skin's elasticity.
