Each year, this Elizabeth Arden–owned oasis offers its beloved Spa Week facial, which cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates your skin. But this time, try a Spa Week de-stress body treatment (50min) or a pedicure with a choice of gel or regular polish for your toes, as well as a Paraffin hand treatment.
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 Swedish or Deep Tissue Tension Tamer massage.
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 tighten things up, book the cellulite treatment.
The fancy former Spa Castle annex offers plenty of ways to calm your mind. Get an admission ticket to relax in one of five saunas—including a 14-karat all-gold sauna and igloo—designed to clear out toxins and help you breathe easily. If you're not interested in lingering around the facility, simply book specific $50 treatments such as a Korean Body Scrub or Petite Facial.
Folks looking to refresh their look for spring will want to book a service at Sisley, since the French joint is offering a slew of treatments with mega mug benefits. Try the expert Phyto-Aromatic facial (45min) or get your mug on fleek with a make-up consultation, application and tutorial (60min).
