Licensed cosmetologist Nirit Reani offers customized facials and gentle waxing from this no-frills Upper West Side spot. She imports products from around the world, often sending clients home with hand-picked samples. Body waxing and eyebrow shaping are also specialties; Reani uses a cream wax or hard wax depending on skin sensitivity. Eyelash and brow tinting with vegetable dye round out the treatment menu, but the main draw here is the eight tailored facials. Versions range from the decadent caviar facial with an anti-aging mask ($135) to the hour-long deep-cleansing herbal facial ($90) utilizing steam and ground guar-gum seeds to soften and extract impurities.
