Best Almost-Free Treatments

  • Fresh

    1367 Third Ave., nr. 78th St.; 212-585-3400

    The facials and body treatments at the petite spa piggybacking Fresh’s uptown store are a well-kept secret among the brand’s many devotees. Primarily because they are, in a sense, free. Once the prebooked pampering is complete, you’ll be gifted the equivalent amount ($125 for the 45-minute Ancienne Ultimate Age-Delay Facial, a cure-all for thirsty skin) in store credit, which you can spend immediately afterward on the Fresh products of your choice (e.g., skin care, fragrance, candles, and soaps).
