LING Skincare & Spa Mimosa Facial – and an at-home alternative

In a desperate attempt to keep my summer glow going, I took LING Skincare up on the generous offer of a new treatment at their downtown Manhattan spa last week. One of *the* beauty destinations in New York City is offering a Mimosa Facial for a limited time only and if you’re lucky to live within walking distance, run. Only available until November, this addition to the menu is pretty spectacular. It left me looking both. Oh, the perks of beauty blogging!

Deconstructing the iconic brunch beverage pairing, the Mimosa Facial combines the brightening properties of Vitamin C with the rejuvenating benefits of Oxygen to visibly firm and revive dull complexion in just ninety minutes. After a gentle cleanse, my phenomenal aesthetician Michiko gave me the most relaxing facial massage using the LING Elastin Collagen Cream. This relaxing ritual prepped my skin for the deep cleanse achieved by combining a thin layer of Glycolic Acid with Spotlight Papaya Resurface Peel on top. The steamer readied my pores to take it all in. Aaaaaaand scene!

After a very rewarding extraction session, it was time for LING’s Herbal Clay Clarifying Mask. Pleasantly aromatic, this non-drying cream purifies and refines to prep the skin for active ingredients that will follow. Next went on the Hi-Vitamin C 12% serum with a spa grade ultrasound machine gliding across my face emitting gentle heat. This way, your skin is able to absorb the product more effectively. Lastly, Michiko applied the SparkLING Makeover Mask for a heavy dose of antioxidants, nutrients, and effervescent Oxygen. Never have I looked this radiant after a facial. A week later, I am still amazed at how firm my skin feels.

Whether you live in New York City or plan to visit this Fall, treat yourself to a Mimosa Facial at LING while it’s still being offered. If the Big Apple is not in the cards, you can always address the post summer skin fiascos with the very skincare used during the spa-exclusive service. A huge fan of the brand’s Spotlight Papaya Resurface Peel for over a decade now, I feel confident in saying the product is one of the very best. When applied to damp skin, this Papaya Enzyme driven exfoliant digests dead cells from the skin’s surface in just ten minutes. The immediate glow is remarkable.

The Hi-Vitamin C 12% serum is a lightweight treatment that goes on before your moisturizer to deliver a powerful dose of Ascorbic Acid (water soluble form of Vitamin C), which brightens and evens out your overall skin tone. This potent antioxidant fights fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and protects against free radical damage and other environmental stress. Infused with healing Asiatic Acid, this botanical blend will never irritate your skin.
