Think yuppie Reagan-era excess when you think of Evian? We attended the opening of Evian’s Mobile Spa toasting New York Fashion Week. The story isn’t just about the preferred-by-models bottled water.
Evian started as a medical spa (it was said to have cured its creatorâ€™s kidney stones) a little less than 200 years ago. Behind the hallowed pink walls of the spa come three intensely moisturizing, cleansing and enjoyable treatments: a detox facial, hot stone massage and detoxifying reflexology. Naturally every moist towel, facial steamer and pillow you see is soaked in the fancy French water.
If you’re privileged enough to be in NYC this month to book a treatment, you will walk out wobbly from how damn good you feel. Not to worry about shaky legs- this is the epitome of preppy chic. As you sip from your glass bottle upon exit, a pink Escalade Evian taxi awaits you.
Fashion Week doesn’t do a whole lot for most of us, except provide a new gossip between celeb babies, break-ups, and awards show drama. Even if you can afford the clothes, you can’t buy them for another 6 months (and it’ll be 8 – 10 before the diluted trends hit Banana Republic and Macy’s). And we know many Shefinds readers aren’t anywhere near NYC, Bryant Park, or the bloated hype of ‘The Tents.’
But you can get some of the Evian beauty experience at home. The high-quality, divine-smelling line of beauty products is a staple in Europe. Evian is as good for your outside as it is for the inside and at killer prices. Get yours at drugstore.com
