Spending countless hours at Caudalie’s spa at The Plaza in New York is not a difficult task. But if you don’t have time to luxuriate in a two-hour facial followed by a lounge in the relaxation area with a few glasses of fine wine (and more than a few nibbles of fine cheese), there’s a new way to get in, get out, and get your primp on. The Under an Hour collection features four treatment round-ups designed to be completed in 60 minutes or less. Vine Reset offers a detoxifying wrap, scalp massage, body massage, and moisturizing mask; Vine Express showcases a body polish, body wrap, petite facial, and scalp massage; Vine Power includes the spa’s grand facial, which is paired with a manicure and petite pedicure; and Vine Flash combines a petite facial and brow shaping with a bikini wax and polish change. We partook in the Vine Flash on a recent visit to the pampering haven, as it includes four things we typically have to trek all over the city for. The service actually begins with the bikini wax, which is unrushed and thorough, and then transitions into the facial. To keep on schedule, this one comes minus extractions, but a little circulation-boosting massage and deep exfoliation can go along way to enhanced clarity. A brow shaping and lacquer application follow directly after. Needless to say, lunch hour just got way more exciting.
Under an Hour treatments are available at the Caudalie Spa at the Plaza, 1 W. 58th St., NYC, (212) 265-3182, www.caudalie-usa.com.
