Novo European Day Spa
Today I had
the pleasure of receiving an out-of-this-world facial at De Novo
European Day Spa. Called the Alpha-Vital facial, this treatment
was as relaxing as it was rejuvenating. It began with my aesthetician,
Ilona, guiding me to a facial room, where I slipped out of my street
clothes and under a comfy heated blanket.
uses YON-KA techniques and products. (YON-KA is one of the most
well-known and respected names in facial treatments.) Ilona explained to
me that this Aha-Bha resurfacing treatment was made of a fresh fruit base,
namely blueberry, pineapple, and lemon (yum!) I was quite concerned about
the sensitivity factor, as I am a blonde and blue irritable-skinned kind

exfoliation for that reason. However, this treatment was so truly gentle
that I didn’t have an ounce of redness afterwards! I was amazed.

soothing steam, and I experienced no stinging or sensitivity! I found
myself slipping into such a relaxed state I could have easily drifted off.
The facial included warm compresses and facial massage, sending me further
into my zen state. But my favorite part was the “fruitplasty” peel off
mask! Super-charged with moisturizing properties, this cool mask is
painted onto the face and left to set for several minutes. While the mask
was drying, I received a wonderfully soothing neck, shoulder and arm
massage. I hadn’t thought I could get more relaxed, but it kept coming.
When the mask was peeled off, my skin felt luminous. And as I came out of
my virtual slumber, I saw in the mirror a smooth, newly awakened
complexion. I was glowing!

night-time formula to maintain the look and feel of the facial. I left De
Novo feeling beautiful and relaxed, and I can’t think of any better
way to spend an hour!
