Spa

Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting the Besu Salon and Day Spa in Gramercy Park to experience the Repêchage Biolight Miracle Facial with Glyco-Sea Peel. Repêchage in French means to pick up and revive someone who was exhausted, and this describes exactly how my skin felt before and after the treatment. The latest in skin brightening science, this signature treatment brightens and helps diminish the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, while enriching the skin with anti-aging benefits. The Repêchage Biolight Brightening Miracle Mask that is applied during the facial contains Ulva Lactuca Extract with a blend of brightening botanicals, which increase cell renewal that help reveal a more youthful appearance. The difference between Repêchage and other brightening products is that it does not irritate the skin and it helps reduce oxidative stress

This most enjoyable treatment was extremely beneficial to my skin, leaving it exceptionally dewy and radiant. First step was to cleanse and then carefully examine my skin to determine its type before a highly concentrated Glyco-Sea Glycolic Peel was applied, which cleared the surface of dead skin and refined its texture. Next, my face was sprayed with a brightening toner to balance its Ph along with applying a Brightening Skin Correct Serum that was massaged into the surface of the face and decolleté. The aesthetician then mixed the contents of the Repêchage Biolight Brightening Mask formula and the Repêchage Biolight Brightening Gel Active together and covered my face with the mixture. For the next 15 minutes I was given a hand massage that only heightened the bliss. When the mask was gently removed, a Brightening Toner Spray was evenly spread over the neck and face. To finish, the Biolight Brightening Daytime Protection Cream was applied to the entire face and neck area.

This facial is addictive! My skin has never looked so moisturized, even-toned, youthful and glowing. For an at home treatment I now use the Repêchage Biolight Brightening Miracle Mask that prolongs the benefits of the professional procedure. It takes 15 minutes to pick up and brighten your skin. Though nothing equals the spa treatment, I do like to use the mask twice a week to keep feeling that dewy skin I am getting so many compliments on!

Besu Salon and Day Spa is a Repêchage Spa de Beauté that won the 2011 Repêchage Spa de Beauté Day Spa of the Year.
