Nestled within the classic “Pink Palace” also known as the Beverly Hills Hotel, La Prairie spa caters to those who simultaneously want the benefits of results driven medical grade facials (without the needles and poisons) and the luxurious pampering that only a five star spa offers. Frequented by locals and out-of-towner’s alike, the spa uses only products by the top of the line La Prairie range including the ultra luxe and expensive “Caviar Whitening Cream” and serums. You can opt to have your service poolside or indoors and the women’s locker room provides a sauna and steam room for pre-facial skin prepping. The top notch team of estheticians at La Prairie are some of the best in the business, this is evident in the fact that after a facial (especially the 60 minute head to toe “Platinum” Facial) you will see such a positive difference in your skin tone, clarity and a tightness that almost makes it seem as if you had help from the “needle” without the needlework! The “Platinum” facial is a wonderful facial for jittery brides to be or simply for someone who wants to spoil herself and look great for an upcoming event. This unique 90 minute facial features an esthetician who works on your face while a therapist massages and moisturizes your feet and hands. You walk out feeling so soft and brand new from head to toe which compliments a general feeling of calm and well-being. La Prairie Spa in Beverly Hills is a “must visit” spa for all spa addicts and novices alike.
We interviewed Allison Rayden, esthetician at The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa by La Prairie:
1. How does La Prairie spa differ from other spas in Beverly Hills?
It’s all about the five star service! Our high caliber of service is what sets The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa by La Prairie apart from our competitors. We pride ourselves on the intimate, gem of a spa space and highly trained and welcoming staff to ensure we treat every client with impeccable service that can be overlooked at larger spas. We truly bring the luxurious and highly effective de-aging La Prairie products to life at The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa by La Prairie.
2. What are the services that are offered at La Prairie that make you stand out in the industry?
A stand out service offered at La Prairie is our signature Caviar Firming Facial. This treatment shines a spotlight on our widely recognized cobalt blue jars from the famed Caviar Collection! An unprecedented concentration of Caviar Extracts, AHA’s and unique sea proteins leaves your skin lifted and illuminated.
Another absolute stand-out treatment would be the new Platinum Rare Facial, which we call the ultimate “skinvestment.” This 90-minute, two therapist-administered head-to-toe treatment with infusions of pure platinum restores balance and a sense of well being. While one esthetician pampers skin using the high performance Platinum Collection, including Cellular Cream Platinum Rare, Cellular Serum Platinum Rare and Cellular Eye Cream Platinum Rare, another therapist gently exfoliates and massages hands and feet. It is bar none one of the most luxe treatments out there – La Prairie at its best!
3. Which La Prairie products are most in demand and why?
Our most demand products are as follows: the coveted Skin Caviar Luxe Cream. This celeb favorite is the ultimate firming and lifting cream with a luxurious buttery feel. Another in-demand product is the new White Caviar Illuminating Eye Serum. The easy to dispense dropper contains a darkness fighting, firming and lifting fluid – you literally won’t believe your eyes! Lastly would be our Anti-Aging Stress Cream. The name says it all – this is a favorite among men and women to help fight aging and relax expression lines instantly for up to 16 hours. It is formulated with valerian roots (nature’s de-stressor), passion fruit, jojoba seed oil, shea butter, La Prairie’s exclusive Cellular Complex of Glycoproteins, Horsetail and Ginseng extracts and more.
4. If you had to choose just three must-have products from the La Prairie skincare collection, which three would you choose?
My personal three must-have items include our Cellular 3-Minute Peel; it gives professional results in the comfort of your own home – amazing for those with large pores. Secondly would be our Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream; it targets sevens signs of aging in one powerful, luxe cream. Lastly would be our 24kt gold-infused Cellular Radiance Concentrate Pure Gold; I love it for brightening the skin and imparting a subtle glow.
5. Which spa services and which products are the most innovative at La Prairie?
As far as innovative spa services at The Beverly Hills Hotel Spa by La Prairie, I have to say the Platinum Rare Facial [see answer #2] is up there! In addition, I would say our Pure Gold Radiance Facial is another top one – we call this La Prairie’s gold standard for anti-aging. The pure golden drops of Cellular Radiance Concentrate Pure Gold used in the facial visibly lifts, firms, brightens and energizes.
Every product we launch is innovative, in my opinion, but if I had to choose just a few, they would include:
· Cellular Cream Platinum Rare – this has quickly become a La Prairie favorite since it launched in Fall 2008. The skin-transforming formula recharges skin’s electrical balance with pure platinum to ensure ageless performance, protects skin’s DNA and replenishes moisture continuously for a look of Soft Splendour. Cellular Cream Platinum Rare is powerful in both function and form and is truly skincare at its best, offering unparalleled benefits to our customers and providing them with younger looking skin.
· White Caviar Illuminating Serum – a real feast for your skin, this brightening serum is formulated with ingredients including golden caviar extract, licorice extract and a white tea complex to address anti-pigmentation and firming concerns.
· Anti-Aging Day Cream SPF 30 – this creamy, hydrating moisturizer contains a unique combination of protection, anti-wrinkle and “new moisturization” technology to fight silent micro-stress within the skin that causes premature aging.
· Skin Caviar Crystalline Concentrate – a nutrient rich serum formulated with our exclusive Cellular Complex and Caviar Extracts, to rebuild, replump, replenish, refirm and reignite your skin’s luminosity.
