I’m no stranger to the $400 facial, but once you enter into the Biologique Recherche world you feel like you are privy to skincare knowledge that is secret and luxurious and special. The Aida Bicaj spa is like a jewelry box filled with the Upper East Side elite. My facial was with Sofia, who is incredibly loving to your skin. I was in her hands for ninety minutes as she massaged and put magic mixtures all over my face, one by one. She has an authoritative touch and such a warm heart that you will want to lie there forever. After leaving, your skin feels incredible and you cannot wait to go back.
