Those searching for the Fountain of Youth may find age-defying rejuvenation in two facials soon to be offered at the more than 16,000-square-foot spa at the Mandarin Oriental, Boston—a Robb Report Top 100 Hotel. On October 1, the spa will add to its treatment menu the skin-care line of Linda Meredith—renowned as the “Queen of Facials,” thanks to her 40-plus years’ tenure in the beauty industry. The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Boston, will offer two of her signature facials, the Couture Facial and the Couture Facial with O2. Using natural products that remove toxins and chemicals from the body, Meredith’s facials result in healthier, younger-looking skin.
The hour-long Couture Facial ($178 during the week and $190 on weekends) includes: a consultation that identifies skin problems; a deep cleanse with micro-glycolic serums that reduce breakouts and tighten the skin; a steam-and-extraction process that eliminates impurities; a micro-peel serum that cleanses the skin; and a relaxing face, neck, and shoulder massage.
Along with these elements, the 80-minute Couture Facial with O2 ($200 during the week and $220 on weekends) adds a 20-minute treatment that uses oxygen and a special serum to smooth and plump skin cells. For those seeking to take up Ponce de Leon’s quest for eternal youth, these facials promise a fresh “face-lift.” (mandarinoriental.com)
