While it may forever remain a mystery what chemical concoction gave your mother’s face-mask its green color back in the day, Wink Eco Beauty Bar in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn can honestly say that its facials are green, in every sense of the word. Wink is giving away a 60-minute Dew Detox Facial ($90 value) to one eco-fabulous reader. The Dew Detox Facial has been specially developed for city-stressed skin. Protein-rich seaweed botanicals penetrate into freshly opened pores to gently detox, smooth, and tighten the face.
The only green spa of its kind in North Brooklyn, Wink is a health and eco-conscious beauty establishment that upholds its commitment to green through carefully vetted products and practices. In addition to its Dew Detox Facial, Wink offers 40 standard spa services with an environmental spin, including a unique waterless “Bare Necessity” Eco Mani/Pedi; customers who opt out of using water are treated with hot damp towels instead.
Wink promises that their products are free of the harmful chemicals surprisingly common in everyday cosmetics, including formaldehyde and parabens. No unbearable fumes or nauseating smells. So relax, breathe deeply, and say oMmmm.
