This bright, botanically-inspired boutique deals exclusively in the highly-touted (and richly priced) Clarins cosmetics, skin, and hair-care lines. With products that emphasize plant extracts, vitamins, and minerals, the store appeals to a broad clientele; older women with mature skin make a beeline for the richer, more hydrating Super Restorative line, while teenagers and new grads rock the Oil-Control. Guys shop here, too, for the well-organized, easy-to-understand ClarinsMen line, which includes bestsellers like the facial Fatigue Fighter to energize and the Undereye Serum to reduce dark circles and puffiness. To experience the line in a spa treatment, head uptown to Clarins’ Upper East Side location.Bridal
The famed French spa offers 60-minute facials for $140 and makeup consultations for $40 per half-hour. The signature exfoliating fruit-and-salt scrub is $160. They’re also happy to make custom packages for brides-to-be.
