Pretty in the City: Day Spa Spotlight – D A P H N E

Want to get that coveted Parisian glow without having to whip out your passport? D A P H N E is a chic skincare and sugaring studio located in the trendy Nolita neighborhood that focuses on blending European modalities and treatments with the latest technology. The spa exclusively carries the premier French skincare company Biologique Recherche’s extensive range of skincare products, and the menu features highly clinical and customized facial and body treatments.

And we’re sweet on this: D A P H N E also offers a full menu of traditional Egyptian Sugaring for men and women through its organic sugaring studio, ilovesugar. Ready to escape the hustle and bustle and take some time to beautify? Here are three standout treatments to try this holiday season.

Biologique Recherche P50 Exfoliating and Detoxifying Algae Wrap

With a unique formula exclusive to Biologique Recherche, Lotion P50 gently exfoliates as well as moisturizes the skin. The body is then wrapped with algae and essential oils in an infrared blanket for a detoxifying and oxygenating effect. Skin is hydrated, firmed and lifted. This treatment fights water retention, aging, and stress.

French Sudatonic Slimming and Detoxifying Body Wrap

An infrared blanket is used with Sudatonic creams to flush toxins from the body. There is notable improvement in skin texture, weight loss, cellulite reduction, and diminished stretch marks. This relaxing wrap burns an average of 1,500 to 3,000 calories.



This technique uses a paste made from lemon, sugar, and water that removes hair in the direction it grows in, and does not involve conventional waxing strips. Traditional Sugaring is not offered by most sugaring studios in NYC, although the method has far more benefits than common strip sugaring—it’s bacteria resistant, results in minimal discomfort and irritation, helps eliminate ingrown hairs, is safe for sensitive skin conditions, and provides superior, healthy, hairless results.
