Bliss’ Soho spa is the reason for the spa-boom in the nineties. With whimsical treatment names—like Peeling Groovy and ‘Homme’ Improvement—and kitschy blue and white décor, it’s no wonder this day spa is world renowned and noted in the Condé Nast Traveler.
The modern reception area (sky blue product wall included) is airy and bright, and absolutely unisex enough to make even the most anti-spa boy feel comfortable. The nail area, with its mostly white palette and blue and red accents, has the aesthetic of an über cool lab. A fitting look, since BlissLabs is their namesake skin line. After check in, you can stash your It-bag in one of Bliss’ digital lockers. Post-treatment, you can take a steam shower, or use the heated shaving cream. Or if you’re hungry, just take a trip down to one of Bliss’ relaxation stations, where you can nosh on the brownie buffet or “fresh fruit” (if you’re into that kind of thing). The cool index of Bliss rises with the choice of jazz music playing overhead, setting it apart from the new age music characteristic of spas, allowing you to relax without lulling you into a coma.
When at Bliss, get your happy glow on with the “red-carpet-revered” triple oxygen treatment. It is a classic facial perfected by Bliss as raved by its own top estheticians and clients alike. Your skin will be revitalized and nourished by the deep cleansing and exfoliation, followed by the soothing oxygen wrap, mask and hydrating enzyme pack. And, to calm the signs of extractions, you can add a seaweed mask, an ideal remedy for redness and swelling. The triple oxygen treatment is recommended for the party-goer, before and after-party – a.k.a. skin that’s stressed and second-hand (or first-hand) smoke, and the jetsetter alike.
Faster than your average luxury spa, Bliss is a sanctuary of extraordinary convenience, whether for a special occasion or individual visits. The perfect pampering fix for a busy schedule. Bliss will be adding to its own signature treatments this summer with the award-winning British brand, Elemis’ anti-aging “tri-enzyme resurfacing” facial and invigorating “lime and ginger salt glow” body polish – two more reasons to visit Bliss for the first time or return to try something new.
