I am a pretty loud, busy person, so when I want to relax, spas are a little intimating to me (not to mention the library). I was invited to check out the Oasis City Spa, (819 S. Flower St., Los Angeles, CA 90017, 213.784.8194, oasiscityspa.com) newly opened in the O Hotel downtown.
As soon as I walked in, I knew this spa was for me. Not only was the atmosphere relaxing and calming, but I didn’t have to whisper and I could just be myself. When you walk in, you are greeted with warmth, lemon flavored water and pastries. After changing into my bathroom and slippers I headed upstairs for my custom facial. I have combination skin, so I loved that my eastetican, Andrea, could customize my facial to what my skin needed.
She used products from BFREE Organics, which included a pumpkin scrub that I literally wanted to eat instead of use on my face. After my facial, I had my eyebrows waxed, which was painless, quick and perfectly done. I walked away from the whole experience relaxed, refreshed, and clean bright skin. It was the first facial where I could walk out and not feel as if I was red or blotchy. Andrea knows her stuff. This spa has many services and if they are like my facial, you will be pampered and calm from start to finish.
