Tribeca Beauty Spa

Everyday it's my job to make clients look and feel better about themselves. As you can imagine, there is a certain amount of pressure on me to practice what I preach. However, one thing that I've ignored over the years is my skin...and now that I'll be 42 in a few months, it's time for me to step up my game and search for someone to teach me how to look after my skin. Over the years, I've had many an esthetician say to me, "You have great skin and you need to look after it!" Did I listen to them? No...

Recently my client and friend Thereza happen to mention that she loved her esthetician at Tribeca Beauty Spa, so I quickly added their number to my contact list.
When I arrived I noticed the vibe was warm and noticeably quiet. God knows I don't need to get a facial while listening to people chat about what happened at the club last night. I was escorted to a private room where I would get a facial and found it immaculate. I loved that there was no sign of the last client's procedures or their mess.

My esthetician Nadia who happens to be the owner of the spa was going to deal with my sun-beaten skin. 

Her touch was soft when it needed to be and firm when needed. I was excited to see that she used products from Sonya Dakar, a renowned professional skin care line loved by the celebrity pack. She dealt with both the blackheads and whiteheads created by years of neglect and sun damage ( i.e - me...oiling my face to bake in the sun.) There's nothing like having someone work on your skin and know what they are doing. No area of my face was denied her expertise.

I actually felt layers of heaviness leave my skin after the steaming, cleansing and all the other tricks she had up her sleeve. When it was over, I really did not want to go. First for the love my skin had just received and second...for how relaxed I felt.

Tribeca Beauty Spa is a beautiful, modern establishment that also offers waxing and nail services. They even have showers and a sauna which can be used after getting a full body massage. Most of all it's not at all intimidating. Personally I'm tired of these warehouses that they now call spas across NYC. Give me intimacy, cleanliness and expert staff.

With a large menu of options for massages, facials and waxing, it seems like they have all the services covered. 

They even specialize in Pre-natal massages!!!

Oh and guess what? They were generous enough to give me 15 gift bags full of products for my girls living in homeless shelters. Now that's love!!!

So if you're looking for a great facial, try Tribeca Beauty Spa and tell them Antonio sent you.

Let's support those who support others!

Just Launched A Dry Shampoo And Argan Oil Hair Mask By Orlando Pita!

He's done it again guys. Orlando Pita just launched two, new incredible products! The first is a dry shampoo...but wait for it...it's just not any old dry shampoo. It's clear! Meaning no color which (I think) is the first of its kind. The second is an Argan Restoring Treatment Mask. It's a paraben-free hair mask that leaves hair feeling luxurious.

Let's face it. The man not only is a wiz at hair, he sure knows how to create hair products that won't sit long on the shelf. Similar to his previous launch (a Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo, conditioner and oil) these new products are expected to be a hot commodity among hair-industry specialists.

So hurry now to your local Costco and treat your hair to the finer things in life.
