I’ve recently made some changes in my life and after a stressful couple of weeks (moving, changing jobs, etc), my skin was in need of some serious TLC. That’s when a sweet angel from heaven named Rebecca (a friend) made a recommendation for a little rejuvenation and happiness: the Wei Lang Spa.
Located right below Houston in New York’s ultra-hip Soho shopping district, I ascended to the fifth floor and was buzzed into an immaculate day spa that one can only describe as impossibly chic. I was greeted warmly and then escorted back for a facial with Anne. After discussing what I do to my skin (not a lot), the condition of my skin (dry, I don’t exfoliate as often as I should) and what I wanted to get out of the facial (hydration, soothing experience where I just needed someone to pet me like a cat for an hour), Anne got to work on what I can only describe as One of The Best Facials Of My Entire Life.
I almost feel badly for putting that in print but I’m not kidding: Anne is magic. I fell asleep during this facial. That’s how gentle and soothing she is. A mixture of masques were applied including Cle de Peau (which I believe Wei Lang is the only salon licensed to administer the Cle de Peau facial in the US) and I emerged with skin that positively glowed from the inside out. Wei Lang also uses Sco, Colorscience and IS Clinical products. Only the best, people.
Next up was a mani-pedi. Now, this is an exclusive spa, folks. There aren’t tons of other clients running around. There’s one pedicure station, one manicure table. You are the only focus in the room at that time and it’s pure heaven on a stick. My manicurist got to work, giving me a fantastic manicure and pedicure with Chanel colors that are just gorgeous (she has Peculiare, people – just saying). MAC, Zoya, Chanel – it’s manicure magic. My mani-pedi and face looked so amazing that I actually had to book an emergency blowout to make sure that the whole package was worthy of my glowing hair and skin. I would have dressed better had I known my skin was going to look that good.
As an exclusive day spa here in Manhattan, Wei Lang offers a very concise menu of services: facials, makeup applications, nail services, waxing and massage are what’s offered and the reason is very simple: whatever they do, they do it WELL. The prices are absolutely affordable, from $130 for a Wei Lang signature facial (what I received and I will be going back for more, no doubt) and between $25-55 for nail services.

I try not to promise to return to a location but I will break that tradition: Wei Lang Spa has found a customer in me.
