Stop into Credo Beauty for a facial treatment and shopping. The better-for-you beauty retailer has an extensive assortment of natural beauty products as well as facials. So just what facial should you get? Blogger Tina Phan from Phashionable recommends the Credo Signature Facial, which she says is highly decadent thanks to a raw honey face massage.
lf you're looking for bespoke all-natural facials, blogger Melissa Middleton Lanman of JNSQ recommends aesthetician Kristina Holey. Lanman says, "I always leave her treatments with glowing skin but also feeling super centered. She has this calming aura and energy to her." And, while Holey is known for her holistic approach and signature facial massage that magically lifts the face and enhances the skin's natural glow, Lanman says she is also adept at handling serious skin issues. She says, "She personally saved me from a tough battle with dermatitis after I had my baby. I owe her my self-esteem!"
"DermaPlus has a more holistic approach and they make many of the products that they use on your skin in-house, which makes it so unique," says Julia Engel from Gal Meets Glam. She further adds that the staff is incredibly knowledgeable, customizing facials with each visit. Her facial of choice? A custom facial and laser skin genesis that she says leaves her skin glowing for weeks on end.
Phan says this chic and tranquil spa is a must-visit should you find yourself in the Bay Area. Located in the heart of the city, Phan recommends getting a relaxing facial (her favorite is the Triple Oxygen Facial) before setting off to site-see and shop in Union Square.
