EUROPEAN FACIAL   90 minutes  $225
Get fresh dewy soft skin with the ultimate luxurious pamper facial. Hands are dipped in a lavender-scented paraffin and wrapped in soft terry mitts. Luscious Geranium Oil and Cucumber Milk cleansers whisk away makeup, pollution, and debris.  A gentle Pomegranate Enzyme Peel is brushed on and activated with relaxing, hydrating Ozone steam. Lips are glossed with a delicious non-petroleum lip balm either Mint, Lavender, or Orange Ginger.  A warm towel wrap infused with calming essential oils of Lavender, Geranium and Roses, removes the peel. Manual extractions eliminate comedones, pustules and milia. A cooling Cucumber Distillate refreshes, an Azulen Toner rinses, and a Sensitive Oil blend of Roman and Moroccan Chamomile calms redness. A high frequency Tesla light sterilizes the pores to prevent breakout. For total relaxation, a hypnotic blend of essential oils is massaged into your neck, shoulders, and face.  A custom blended hydrating plant based Stem Cell Remedy or Royal Bee Jelly Mask plumps and nourishes the skin. Paraffin is removed and hands are gently massaged with an oil blend.  MSM Serum, Rosacea Lotion, and Bee Beautiful are applied with an ice cold Beauty Globe leaving your skin silky smooth, fresh and dewy.
