…I know majority of my posts are about fashion boutiques, but today my friends, we are switching gears a bit! I don’t think I have ever told you, but along with my numerous other obsessions I have mentioned in the past, I also LOVE skin care products. Well there is just one line to be exact – AmorePacific. It is by far the most amazing products I have ever put on my skin and I was thrilled to find out they have a flagship boutique along with a spa in Soho. On my recent trip to NYC, I went in to check it out…
AmorePacific is all about Asian botanicals using key ingredients Green Tea (powerful anti-oxidant), Bamboo Sap (more hydrating than water), and Red Ginseng (anti aging). They believe that beauty secrets are found in nature and AmorePacific is the only cosmetic company in the world to grow and harvest it’s own Green Tea.
When entering the AmorePacific store, it is very obvious the concept, that beauty is found in nature, is pulled throughout the interior aesthetics. Wooden slats run up one side of the boutique and across the ceiling leading into a blue, ocean-esque wall where the entire AmorePacific collection is displayed. It is very inviting and you are welcome to test everything. (Don’t mind if I do!) The spa is towards the back where there are these very modern, pod like, treatment rooms and an “Asian Botanical Mixing Bar” where ingredients are customized specifically for your needs. The spa focuses on facials, but also offers treatment boosters like masks and exfoliation along with waxing.
Once you have experienced an AmorePacific facial, you are probably going to want to indulge in at least one of the products they use on your face! Other than in the Soho flagship, AmorePacific is sold exclusively in Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus along with Sephora.com. I will admit, this is not the most affordable skin care in the world, but samples can be a girls’ best friend.
