Pore were de-clogged, skin was misted, masked, and hydrated, and I walked away feeling revived. I’m a VMV Know-It-Oil addict (100% organic virgin coconut oil), which I often use as a moisturizer for dry hands and cuticles, and was thrilled to have it used on my body during the massage portion of the facial, as it smells, and feels, just so incredibly delicious. One of the most unusual, but satisfying aspects of the massage was how incredibly thorough it was; even my ears got examined, which had some hardening from build up of oils, dirt, etc, in my second earring holes and Holly carefully worked out. Good thing too, since I haven’t used or thought about them since, oh, maybe, 1994?
Got “bacne”? There’s a treatment for that — dull skin? There’s a treatment for that too! Most services last 60 minutes, with an average price range of about $110-$125 for facials, although there are several lower-priced options, like the “Skin Picker-Upper,” which lasts about 30 minutes and cost $45, considered to be a great introductory to the skin philosophy and products that VMV offers. My VMV experience was certainly an A++, so next time you’re planning a trip to SoHo/NoLiTa, or even NYC and are in need of some skin revitalization, give VMV a ring!
