When heading down Rosecrans in the “industrial strength” area of El Segundo, look for the spacious Murad glass towers, resembling the Great Land of Oz. Little did I know they likewise housed the secrets to the lost Fountain of Youth.
I was welcomed by their friendly, smiling staff, while they checked me in on their computers as though I were the most important person in the room. I was invited to take a seat in their immaculately polished lobby, complete with an array of their award winning products, complemented by deliciously refreshing citrus infused water or herbal teas.
I was soon led down the beautifully marbled hall to a Spa room where I was given a key and locker so I could change into one of their luxurious terry cloth robes and don a pair of spa sandals. Showers, private changing rooms and ample towels are provided while vanity areas are equipped with hair dryers, facial and spa products, and more.
The Concierge showed me another intimate, yet smaller waiting area nearby, complete with an assortment of tea and water where she invited me to wait for my aesthetician thereafter.
Rosa introduced herself as my facialist. Her kind, smiling demeanor made me feel perfectly at ease as she explained how the Murad philosophy combines a high concentration of active ingredients combined with the healing power of touch. Murad offers a complete range of facials for every age and concern for both women AND men: from acne issues to anti-aging and even Signature facials, such as “Pure Bliss” and a “Pom-tastic” cleansing facial with pomegranate fruit enzymes to attack those “free Rads” just to name a few.
My skin was glowing like a young bride as I proceeded to meet with “Elia” my massage therapist. Here, Murad also offers a vast range of massages such as their most popular Sports/Deep Tissue Massage, or custom tailor your experience with a Signature service to soothe those sore muscles while increasing circulation.
