Sunday I had the opportunity to try Om Aroma Co.’s Champagne Face Fix and Chardonnay Hand Fix at their lovely Beauty Bar in Limelight Marketplace in Manhattan. After the record-setting heat wave in the city, this quick organic facial was exactly the detox my skin craved.
My aesthetician started by gently cleansing with the Elixir de Beauté, containing crushed champagne grape seeds and powdered mother of pearls, to exfoliate and rejuvenate skin without drying. Next, she misted my face with Aromatonique, an alcohol-free toning mist with lavender, chamomile and honeysuckle. My face felt a refreshing tingle before she moisturized with Crème Luxe, which boasts an unprecedented combination of seven vitamins and minerals plus white truffle extract for luminous skin and red raspberry oil for natural sun protection. The cherry-on-top to complete the facial is the Extrait de Caviar, a delicate eye cream fortified with botanical extracts, CoQ-10 and caviar. In just five minutes my revived skin looked more even and felt soft and hydrated.
Founder and CEO of Om Aroma & Co. Angela Jia Kim started the line in her kitchen sink to create an effective alternative to beauty products filled with chemicals. Two years later her luxury all organic and paraben- and sulfate-free products are a great add-on treatment for clients as they wait or to take home for an all-natural anti-aging, beauty routine. If you happen to find yourself in NYC July 18th or 25th, stop by the Om Aroma Beauty Bar (Limelight Marketplace at 6th Ave. & 20th St.) to experience the mini-facial and massage between 1:00pm and 6:00pm—the services are complimentary with a $20 purchase.
