I showed up to Chen Face and Beauty for a deep cleansing facial treatment in jeans. I mean who, goes to get pampered in skinnies? Massage + Miss Sixty does NOT = Relax! I should have gone for my favorite new pair of floral tights, which, by the way, are scorching hot right now! Anyhow, lesson learned, and this post isn’t about fashion. It’s about beauty.
Chen’s Spa is a lovely little neighborhood treasure in Ramat Poleg, Netanya. Decorated in all white, with romantic antique chests and chairs scattered thoughtfully throughout; Chen’s intimate atmosphere is a great place to spoil yourself. Before your treatment, enjoy coffee, tea, or sweet treats displayed deliciously in beautiful glass cookie jars, which are for sale in a quaint little boutique overflowing with great girly-girl goodies.
My treatment was by candle light, a relaxing touch. When Chen, who personally does all of the treatments, slathered product on my face that needed time to work its magic, she didn’t leave me alone in the room for an extended period of time where I’m expected to drowse off into happy land but always end up peeling off whatever is covering my eyes and looking aimlessly around the room. Minutes that pass as fast as algebra class for an English student! Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by an arm, and foot and leg massage.
Apparently steam, isn’t in facial fashion right now. I was a huge skeptic when I heard that there was “another way” to open up my skin in order to remove all of the yucky stuff stuck underneath the surface. But I left utterly glowing and free of red marks, the hallmark of a good facial. There’s nothing more uncomfortable walking around all day with the red evidence of extraction written all over your face…hold that thought, there might be one worse thing… sweaty, stuck-on -you skinnies after a wonderfully relaxing spa treatment!
