CHICHI LOCALE, FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SERVICE – Got a gift package: massage, delicious scrub & facial. Here's what I thought...
Massage - OMG, soooo relaxing. Simone is a sweetheart and has an EXPERT firm touch. Nearly fell asleep 3-4 times in the 50 minutes! She's also very knowledgeable & witty but not overly chit-chatty. "Just right" as Goldilocks would say.
Never had a scrub done before. WOW. The delicious scrub was moisturizing and exfoliating and my skin (even 2 days later) STILL feels great! She got my elbows and knees so soft (I didn't know they could get THIS SOFT!!). HIGHLY RECOMMEND both, especially the scrub.
The room is very tranquil and has an instantly relaxing vibe. A bit bright for a massage yes, but just close your eyes and you'll be fine.
Okay, as for the facial... I had a bit of "gunk" in my nose, so yes, it hurt a bit... the before cleansing was great, the steam cloth was great too, the cooling mask afterwards was also great... this was my 3rd facial (ever), but I'm beginning to wonder, despite my sensitive skin, was I supposed to have little scabs from my pores? No, I looked even worse yesterday and today...in fact, I look like I brushed up on poison ivy on 1 side of my face... I was quite happy with the nose extractions, but not too thrilled with the scabs and 2-day, post redness. Was I supposed to tel her, nose only? Hmmm, not sure. For a freebie (gift), the facial was FINE. If it's all the same, I'd return only for the massage & scrub.
This is not a place to come to if you're watching pennies. That's like going to a classy French restaurant and ordering a salad with lots of bread. If you're coming to Sothy's, open your wallet (hell, finance the day for 1-2 credit card statements!) and indulge yourself. Because the answer is OF COURSE, YOU ARE WORTH EVERY BIT...
Enjoy your experience!
