Recently, I had my first visit to the trendy nail bar, The Ten Spot, located in Westboro Village. Now you might assume I went for a mani/pedi, which I love to do, but you’d be mistaken. I booked myself a birthday facial.
It had been a stressful few weeks and I liked the sound of a calming facial. My husband was taking me out to lunch at The Savoy Brasserie afterwards, so in my mind a facial first and wine after was a good plan.
Upon arriving at The Ten Spot, I was warmly greeted and offered a beverage. The aesthetician that would be doing my facial was just finishing up with a client, which gave me time to peruse the beautiful nail polish collection, and skin products available for purchase.
Just on time for our appointment, Naomi came out to meet me and bring me to the facial area. Unlike other facials I’ve had, it wasn’t in a private room but rather a cozy nook that has two chairs. For the better part of my facial there wasn’t another individual, however near the end a lady had her eyebrows waxed by another aesthetician. I’m sill on the fence about how I feel about that. On one hand, it would be pleasant if I had booked a facial with a friend and we could chat – on the other hand I like having a quiet room with low lighting and even soft music for a facial, I think it adds to the relaxation.
With that said, the facial itself was incredible. Naomi walked me through the steps of what she would be doing and I sat back in the comfortable chair and enjoyed the process. The facial at The Ten Spot is fully customized to your skin using Dermalogica® products. [Pre-Cleanse, Cleanse, Exfoliation with Hot Towel Treatment, Steam, Extractions, Tone, Massage, Masques, Eye Treatment, Serums, Moisturizer + SPF]. It really is the works and afterwards, your skin looks so smooth and glowy.
After the facial, Naomi went over my “skin map”. She took notes about my skin during the facial and wrote out where my skin was dehydrated, looking healthy, and congested (pimples). She made product recommendations based on her close examination of my skin and I thought her advice and direction was really helpful.
Overall, I loved the energetic, fun, and professional vibe at the The Ten Spot Beauty Bar in Westboro. I would love to go back and try their manicure and pedicure service in the swanky lounge area.
I absolutely recommend The Ten Spot Beauty Bar and was really happy with my facial. Like I mentioned before, if you are used to a private room and spa environment, this service is a little bit different. Even so, I would go back in a flash to get a good facial and treat my skin to another round of TLC.
Check out a list of their services on their website and stop by today to try their amazing services.
