To Unwind: Bliss SoHo

To Unwind: Bliss SoHo(Courtesy of Bliss World)If you frequent Sephora, you’ve probably seen an entire section dedicated to body products by the brand Bliss. Skin-expert-turned-entrepreneur, Marcia Kilgore, is responsible for the world-famous Bliss empire, which began in New York City with the flagship Bliss Spa located in SoHo.

Founded in 1996, Bliss SoHo is known for luxury treatments sought after by picky Manhattanites. What sets this spa apart from countless others in the city? The non-elitist atmosphere. The staff is friendly, the climate is welcoming and the spa menu — anyone up for the Head Over “Peels” Scrub + Rub? — is not only amusing, but full of incredible, cutting-edge options.

Many of the aestheticians on staff have been with Bliss SoHo since its inception. Their expert skills make for an excellent experience. The treatment that made Kilgore famous, the Triple Oxygen Facial, is a cult favorite among in-the-know New Yorkers. It includes a targeted peel, an energizing enzyme pack and three forms of skin brightening oxygen (including an oxygen wrap and vitaminized O2 spray) that will get you glowing.

From the serene relaxation room stocked with mini oatmeal cookies and every fashion magazine imaginable to the state-of-the-art nail salon with rose-petal-filled pedicure basins, Bliss SoHo is one of the best places to take it easy in the entire city.
