Never heard of Saul's? Well that's probably b/c it's pretty new but can I just say it's also pretty awesome! I personally had the pleasure of getting my own facial at Saul's last week and it was probably one of the best facials I've had..no lie! The spot itself is located right on Dundas West near Bellwoods Ave. It also has a totally different vibe than most spas too...almost like you're stepping into someone's cute apt...not sterile or all white...that's b/c owner Eliss wanted to create a warm and friendly environment that would appeal to both men and women...reg. spa goers as well as newbies.
She also only carries products that are SLS and petrochemical free...she even writes up about it here on her site.
Also...and this is probably the biggest one compared to most places I've received facials from before. Her facials are booked in time increments instead of the type of facial. Basically when you go in you speak to Eliss about your concerns, sensitivities and the things you want most out of a facial ie. mask, extractions, peels etc. and from there she customizes your facial based on your skin type, needs, concerns and the time increment you've paid for.
So why did I enjoy my facial so much you might be asking. Well to start off I just really liked the vibe...I actually always liked Eliss the once or twice I had her at Aroma so I knew I was off to a good start there. Unlike most spas she doesn't play typical waterfall or meditating music but instead it's more of an old school classic slow r&b & jazz sort of thing. Plus using the Aromatherapy Associates spa line she customizes the masks based on what she thinks you need...maybe a bit extra oatmeal or guava etc. I had the Rose face mask. And this was probably the best part...during the facial a lot of times the esthetician will leave the room during the steam or mask but Eliss actually gave a hand massage, shoulder massage and finally a scalp massage all during the facial...definitely aided in my relaxation!
