B London Express Rose Facial
Although reclining in a leather chair at a beauty counter in the middle of a bustling department store sounds like the least-relaxing way to get a facial, the ayurvedic techniques employed in this 20-minute treatment somehow manage to make the surrounding din—and stress—melt away. The stateside location of London’s Blink Brow Bar is best known for threading, but this gentle express service was designed to showcase the brand’s new skin-care products containing anti-inflammatory rose water. The three-step process begins with the exfoliating rose scrub, which removes makeup and dead skin, followed by a cooling rose-water gel that sinks into and hydrates the epidermis. Finally, the anti-aging rose day cream is applied for a dewy glow. Between the pressure-point massage and intoxicating floral scent, you’ll lose yourself and feel like you visited a proper spa in the time it would take you to commute to one. B London Express Rose facial, 20mins $40 (normally $50), at Blink London at Henri Bendel, 712 Fifth Ave at 56th St (212-904-7979). Mention TONY to receive this discount through June 23.
