OnlyOnAOL: You need to get that #NYFW glow at our three favorite spas
By: Donna Freydkin
Normally we'd be all bummed that summer is over. And September gets going with New York Fashion Week's spring/summer 2017 collections, taking place now.
But there's this to look forward to: the reopening of the The Bergdorf Goodman x La Prairie counter. Plus, the brand's super-insanely-nice Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion will be available for purchase. But wait, skincare gurus, there's more. The La Prairie facial room will open up at the end of September, but you can go ahead and call 212-872-2623 to schedule up your appointment. (And watch our interview with "Allure" beauty guru Michelle Lee above).
Caudalie just launched the Jason Wu limited edition beauty elixir, which is every bit as sumptuous as you'd imagine. In general, we love the brand's products because they're accessible and they're missing all those icky things like sodium laureth sulfate. The brand's co-founder says she relies on vine and grape extracts from the vineyards of Bordeaux, Champagne and Burgundy. To which we say, salut. And fans can rejoice, because Caudalie now has a very cozy downtown enclave, in the brand-new Westfield World Trade Center shopping mecca. You can get pampered, then swing up and grab some cheese at Eataly.
And in no particular order, here's another one of our go-tos: Sisley on Bleecker Street. If you want something lower-key than the very swanky spa the brand has at the Carlyle, just swing over to the brand's Bleecker Street location and have one of its signature facials. Trust us, the trek is worth it.
