A few weeks ago, I had the supreme pleasure of visiting the Kiehl's Spa 1851. This spa is located (very conveniently) only three blocks from my apartment -- and yet, it took me YEARS before I finally went in for a treatment. Well, thank goodness I did, because my skin has never looked or felt better!

Kiehl's Spa 1851 is located on the 2nd floor of the Kiehl's store on 64th Street and Lexington Avenue. I've long frequented the store -- how could I not, since Kiehl's is one of my favorite beauty brands of all time? -- but visiting the spa was a definite treat. After being checked in by one of the associates (who all wear white lab coats, making it feel just a bit like a doctor's office but in the best possible way), I was led up the stairs to the spa. (And, coincidentally, Spike Lee was at the spa at the same time as me -- we went up the stairs together! Pretty darn cool.)

Each of the treatment rooms at the Kiehl's Spa 1851 is themed, with art by Curtis Jinkins and David LaChapelle. I was in the Rainforest Room, which incorporates Kiehl's history of sourcing the finest natural ingredients from around the world into a mural on the wall. Each of the rooms also features tin ceilings and antique fixtures -- and, of course, the entire Kiehl's product line.

Some of the products my esthetician used during my facial
While it was quite difficult to decide upon which treatment to receive during my time at the spa, I simply had to go with a facial -- the Kiehl's skincare line contains some of my very favorite products, so how could I not? I chose the Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Anti-Aging Facial, which incorporated the new -- as you might guess -- Super Multi-Corrective Cream. (You may remember that I reviewed this moisturizer back in August!)

This treatment incorporated all of the standard steps one might expect during a facial -- cleansing, exfoliating, extractions, a mask -- with one major difference. At the end, MY SKIN LOOKED AND FELT INCREDIBLE. It was softer, it was smoother, it was downright glowing. This is thanks both to the Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream and to the collagen mask my esthetician used, which works to maintain elasticity and prevent premature aging.

There are multiple facials and body treatments to choose from here, some even customized just for guys. They range in price from $90-$330. For more information about the Kiehl's 1851 Spa and to book an appointment, visit kiehls.com.
