For the past 10yrs Oasis Day Spa has been a hidden gem, nestled in the basement of it’s Park Avenue location. Quiet, tranquil and private (adjectives you rarely associate with NYC), it’s like my dream bat cave, and a perfect afternoon retreat to shut out the world and bask in some much needed pampering. I celebrated their 10th birthday with a facial! Oasis Day Spa is one of the few locations that I have found that uses CosMedix; which is a highly efficacious, advanced cosmeceutical line, that just so happens to be my mother’s favorite skincare line (and she’s a very picky woman). If you’re in need of a facial and looking for someone to tell it like it is and give you the best advice for YOUR skin, ask for Evelyn! She’s lovely and so knowledgeable. If you’re looking for

Define Vitamin A Resurfacing Treatment – $74
Define is a potent cream made from a unique blend of gentle acids and 2% AGP Complex (a retinal alternative), which encourages cell renewal and collagen enhancement. Additionally, Define is formulated to exfoliate and resurface skin by stimulating the
During a recent trip to Warren Tricomi, the beauty shop in The Plaza Hotel, I was introduced to ReVersital 3-in1 MidcrodermaStick. The representative demonstrated on my hand how this product cleanses, resurfaces, and moisturizes.
Considering how amazing the skin on my hand felt, I knew I wanted to try and review this product. After two weeks of using this product (3 times a week), my skin was glowing. This is truly an extraordinary product and worth trying.
I made the mistake of bringing it home on a recent trip to Boston where I was hoping to get my mother’s opinion (and gather data to see how it works for a more mature skin). Generally the only products she gets excited about are Cosmedix or Dr. Haushka; however, after her first experience with the ReVersital she wouldn’t
