I was on vacation in Santa Fe in Nov.2012. Prior to going I'd lost 25 pounds, half my goal, but for the first time not so happy with my face. Now don't get me wrong, I have a list of procedures that I need and want but God and Mom gave me amazing skin, am in my 50"s never had or needed a facial, felt had few wrinkles, pale, no pores showing. But I started moisturizing at 15, never went to bed with makeup, smoked very little and don't drink. Plus am French/Italian they have good skin. The hotel had a spa so I booked my first facial, I thought if I look less tired I'll be happy. Face products I use are Chanel. I didn't look less tired when it was over, I looked almost a decade younger. Sadly, since my first I don't know all she did but will describe those of you that do know might be able to help. The line she used was epicuren,
Had never heard of it. She described it as the strongest all natural line without going to a Dr. Higher levels of collagen and hylauranic acid. The facial
was about 90 mins.,she was very skilled. Studied my skin thought it in good
shape for my age and not getting regular facials. She thought I should have one every other month. She took off my makeup. Then massaged a cold
cream into my skin, placed a warm sage smelling towel on my face. Heard her mixing other stuff, cleaned the cream off then applied a silver mask. There was a machine with rolling balls that massaged deeply felt terrific. She also applied creams to my neck and declotte (sp) and did a great job on my hands, then left gloves on that. After many steamings after each step and the incredible smelling towels. I was done she cleaned up my eyebrows, and massaged a serum into my face. Then handed me the mirror, I thought I'd had a face lift, seriously.I then realized that the eye lift I'd been putting off had caused deeeeep wrinkles across my forehead and nose.They were completely gone. I.m serious. Not a single wrinkle and this lasted till beginning of Jan. I bought a few of the products, cost a tenth of Chanel. The line is epicuren. The place was the Santa Fe hotel,hacienda and spa. Rooms in the Hacienda are 450 a nite, suite with butler to run errands. That massage was so worth it, even with first class airfare from va. To n.m. I,d go tomorrow just for her facial. When I got home not a single spa used Epicuren, in the past week have found two. So happy-

i think Stephanie plays scrabble

Am a huge fan of Santa fe, there are many good spas there and I usually stay at this hotel, their spa had great reviews and offered a wide range of body and facial services. I love this hotel because it is the only five star hotel truly native american owned. I think we should give something back.
