Have you ever had the feeling you wanted to just get away? To be transported into a space where only positive energy and thoughts surround you? To go somewhere you could forget about everything and focus on the now? And do it all in a matter of 45 minutes?
I had an incredible opportunity to experience a revolutionary facial with Natura Bissé at Neiman Marcus at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, CA. And let me tell you, this was a spa experience like no other!
As I walked into the room, I was surprised to find a large, white, bubble tent encompassing most of the space. I could already tell that this would be a facial experience like none I have had before. I was told that inside this bubble is where I would receive my treatment. As soon as I changed into a robe and was guided into the zipped up bubble, I could feel the energy quickly changing around me.
/ BUBBLE PURE AIR /
In addition to the already technologically advanced skincare products it develops, Natura Bissé has also created an exclusive place to perform it’s treatments. The space is called Bubble Pure Air where the air you breathe is 99.9% pure (no toxins, no pollutants, no stressors). Just knowing I was in such pristine air calmed my breathing a bit, relaxed my body, and put my mind at rest.
/ THE MINDFUL TOUCH /
And if the bubble wasn’t cutting-edge enough, Natura Bissé’s Mindful Touch spa experience begins with an innovative venture of virtual reality to prepare your body and mind to relax and awaken your senses to experience the treatment in a magnified way. I was provided with goggles to begin my treatment. Opening my eyes to beautiful scenes of billowing clouds, soft waters, and geometric shapes, I found my mind drifting to the present moment, leaving behind all the errands I had to run, the meals I had to prepare, and the chores I had waiting for me at home. I let my ears really listen to the gentle words that were being spoken, forgetting everything in between, taking me to the present and being in the now. This set the mood for the entire treatment I was about to receive.
/ THE FACIAL TREATMENT /
The facial began with the cleansing of the face. Because of the Mindful Touch presentation before my facial, I was able to deeply feel each gentle touch from the therapist. After the cleansing, the Glycol Extreme Peel was applied as an exfoliating treatment. I could immediately feel the peel’s sensations working on my face. There was no pain or stinging, but I could tell something was happening as soon as the product was applied. This delicate peel is safe to use at home twice a week (you only have to leave on for 15 minutes) and it will minimize pores, fade spots, and reduce visible signs of aging (hurray, a safe and cheaper chemical peel). After the peel, I was given a layer of two different masks and then a silicone mask to seal it all in. With the thickness of each mask that was layered on, I could literally feel my skin plumping and hydrating in a matter of minutes. Once the masks were removed and wiped away, I was gently patted with moisturizer, eye cream, sunscreen, and sprayed with a mist. I could instantly feel that my face was super hydrated. It was like it had been thirsty for some time and was just given the nutrients it needed to be refreshed and whole again. The pure oxygen that encompassed me also allowed the facial and its elements to deeply penetrate into my skin and work more effectively.
What I loved most about this treatment was I truly was present in the moment and let every worry escape my mind. The virtual reality presentation and the pure oxygen I was breathing allowed not only my mind, but my body to fully enjoy and receive the treatment. In addition, unlike most facials I have received in the past, I realized that during my experience with Natura Bissé, there was no downtime for the therapist. Even as she waited for the peel and masks to work its magic on my face, she was constantly massaging my face, my arms, my legs, to really make sure that every part of my body was relaxed and stress-free.
In this fast-paced and chaotic world we live in, it is nice to escape the day-to-day, experience the present moment and reconnect with your thoughts and body. Natura Bissé really pampers your every need and provides an exceptional relaxation experience that goes beyond your expectation. Long after the treatment was over, I still had the same serene and rejuvenated feeling I had right after my facial and it completely reflected onto my glowing skin. The next time I need to just a moment to myself and just get away, you know where to find me.
The Mindful Touch experience is an exclusive event which launched launched for the first time during Oscar week for celebrities and stars. This event is happening in select cities so check here to see when they are in your town. Even if you aren’t able to book the experience, what’s amazing is that you can experience it from your home with their amazing line of products.
/ PERSONAL FAVORITES FROM NATURA BISSE /
Believe me, I know these products are not cheap. And while I would love to be able to use the entire line, I have selected my favorite products and must-haves from the brand. I consider them investments in my skin, a constant maintenance so that I won’t have to spend a lot of my face later as I age.
Thank you to Cheresse Pentella at Neiman Marcus at Fashion Island and Natura Bissé for providing me an unbelievable facial and surreal spa experience.
The older I get, the more I realize the value and importance of investing in skincare, especially facials!! They really do make a huge difference in the texture of your skin. You look so flawless as always Christine and now I think I need to try this facial for myself!
Yes totally. I think it makes a difference to invest in your skin starting in your late 20’s and it will definitely pay off. This facial was really an extraordinary experience and I was so lucky to have tried it out and share it.
Wow, I need to look into this. Sounds amazing!
Great coverage babe.
Thanks Lisa, it really is worth looking into. Especially for someone always on the go, it is great just to reconnect and recharge.
Oh wow! This experience sounds so divine! It’s so important to just take time out and switch off these days so this sounds like the perfect way to do it!
Thanks Emily. It really was a wonderful and revolutionary experience. I am definitely not one that can escape all the things to do in my mind so the fact that I was really able to with the help of the virtual reality makes this technique a winner!
The experience sounds amazing! I have noticed their products and wondered how they are. Thanks for sharing. Gotta try the oil myself!
Since you are a luxury skincare addict, I KNOW you would love Natura Bisse’s line. The oil is truly magnificent and I really think you would love the glycolic peel mask.
Wow, sounds amazing! I need to try this, thanks for sharing babe!
You definitely need to give it a try. Once you try this facial, nothing else compares!
Everything about this experience sounds AMAZING!! Weekend spa trips are really the best way to relax and refresh your mind and body 🙂 The bubble pure air looks so cool..I’ve never seen something like that before, but would love to try it!! Thanks for sharing love <3
It was pretty incredible and I just love that I am breathing in pure oxygen which helps activate and penetrate the products even depper into my skin. You have amazing skin already but if you ever come across this facial, you should try it!
Looks so luxurious! Need to try

Hi Esther. It was quite a luxe treatment, but one that I will definitely try again. I’ve been using their products since this facial and I can totally tell a difference in the texture of my skin.
This is amazing, I need to invest in this line

Filipa, you would LOVE this line. It is made in Barcelona and totally worth the investment. I’ve been using the oil and mask since this facial and I literally can feel a difference in my skin!
wow this sounds so luxurious and amazing! I’ll def have to check it out
It really is an amazing brand of products and so happy that I was able to discover it. If there is anything you must invest in, it’s skincare.
Christine, it sounds like a really good and luxurious experience. I would love to try it.
Definitely i have to save money to go to California.
Have a great day.
It was such an incredible experience Catarine and one that I will try and do every so often. The brand, Natura Bisse, is actually based out of Barcelona and is carried in select spas around the world. You can purchase their products online at Neiman Marcus!
Omg, this fresh air treatment sounds so good 🙂
It was pure luxury and just so calming Nati!
Ohh this sounds amazing! This is exactly what a woman needs!! I would love to try this one day so thank you very much for sharing! Xx Susanne – http://bagatyou.com
Yes, definitely something a woman needs in her life! The virtual reality experience and the pure oxygen just really makes this facial that much better than anything else you’ve had!
This facial experience sounds so heavenly! With the stress and pollution we all go through these days, this facial is much needed. Skin care is an investment we all need to make considering the lifestyle we lead 🙂
You are totally right on Ankita! I think with all the bad stuff out there from pollution, to stress, to even the chemicals in the food we eat, skincare is so important and something that will last us our lifetime so we must invest in quality products and facials to protect and prevent pre mature aging.
Okay this is a spa I need to get over to ASAP! My skin suffers and I mean SUFFERS from dryness and if your skin felt that quenched, I can only imagine how mine will feel. Thanks so much for the review. Bookmarking this page for when I go to CA!
I am all about hydration as I get older and actually the pure oxygen bubble is something that helps your skin accept the products and serums that are put onto your face even deeper. Being in pure oxygen allows your body’s recovery and since it isn’t spending energy fighting pollutants and stressors from the air, it can work harder to let the products penetrate into your skin.
I’ve actually never had a facial of any kind so I’m kind of speechless right now. I have been thinking about making an appointment with a local spa but I really had no idea that a facial could be such a relaxing and soul nurturing experience. I love the fact that the Natura Bisse facial was set in the clean oxygen bubble and allowed you to escape the day to day concerns. I would love to be able to experience this so I am going to look in my city and definitely think about investing in this line.
I am so surprised you have never had a facial, your skin is so beautiful! You definitely need to experience it at least once!
This post is absolutely amazing! To be honest I have never heard about this treatment, but looks like a great option to try! I would love to know about the final results. I’m always on the loop to find new good products to enhance woman’s natural beauty . Thanks for sharing!
Enjoy your weekend !
I hadn’t heard of this treatment before either, but now that I have experienced it, it’s hard to imagine not being pampered like this. Although using great skincare products will help you do these mini facials at home so you don’t have to go and get them done.
This sounds like a wonderful experience and the products look really good.
The products are definitely worth the investment!
This looks like such a great treat in a busy schedule we have. Especially when having kids, I guess we cannot even afford more than 45 mins:) It is the first time I hear about it and I hope I will be able to try it one day!
It definitely is a treat just to get 45 minutes of alone time, isn’t it? The facial is a wonderful experience that I highly recommend.
What a fabulous experience! I’ve never heard of this type of treatment before. And the Virtual Reality, so futuristic!
I would love to try this luxurious facial and be totally stress-free, relaxed AND have amazing skin. Sounds wonderful 🙂
Have a great weekend! X
I know, I hadn’t either, but I love that Natura Bisse incorporates advanced technology not only into their products but their spa experience as well.
This sounds like the most extraordinary spa experience! I love your writing and thank you for introducing me to the new products and innovative beauty service and treatments!

Thanks so much Debbie! I am obsessed with anti aging and finding great products to use at home to prevent fine lines and improve overall skin texture.
This looks so luxurious! I should invest in this line.

Hi Ann-Marie, it is luxurious but also worth the investment. =)
Such a great products and technology. Invest in your skin is always the best we can do it. Is the only one what we have.
Literally I heard about this oxigen cabins but nerver saw how they working. Here is the reason why you looks always stunning 🙂
You are too sweet Eva. I had heard of pure oxygen before but never used in a spa setting. I guess athletes also use pure oxygen after workouts or games to help their bodies recover faster. It’s amazing that Natura Bisse uses advanced technology in their spa treatments, isn’t it?
OMG girl! You’re so lucky!
This sounds like such a cool and unique experience! I’ve heard great things about this brand and I’m seriously considering making an investment on my skin!
Thank you so much for sharing. Love what you did here!
It WAS such a cool experience and while I don’t believe that every product that is expensive works miracles, I have been using Natura Bisse’s Diamond Mask and Oil for a few weeks now and I can tell that my skin texture has improved and it’s more even all around.
OH my gosh !!!!! I really need to try something like this. What a fun time I’m sure. I have not heard of this brand before,
but I think it is something I should look more into. I really need to find some good products that go good with my skin.
Wow girl! This seriously sounds like such an amazing experience. I’ve never head of the brand but I’m always willing to try stuff that’s really good for your skin!
This sounds like such an amazing experience. Taking care of your skin is so important and recently my skin has gotten a little dull, I will definitely look in to this.
Aww wow, this treatment and the whole thing look just fantastic, I bet you had a great experience! I totally agree with you, the older you gets, the more important it becomes to invest into skincare products.
Cheers, Eliza | http://www.fashion-confession.com
This skin care treatment sounds so delightful! I would definitely check them out. In this stressful world and dirty air, I feel like the skin need extra treatments and spending money on good quality is very important!
I have heard of this brand but never had a chance tot ry it yet! Sounds like you got the luxury treatment just like all the celebrities! Must check this out for my next mini spa day.
This sounds absolutely wonderful! I love the idea of the virtual reality before a treatment. Any time I go into to get anything done it takes me around 30 minutes to wind down from everything going on in my day so I really love that you are first transported to a more serene state of mind before the session begins. I immediately clicked to see if they would be around any where I would be traveling in the next few months and every time I will have just gone or it will be just before I go. However, I’ll make sure to check out these products!

Oh YES!!! I’m always looking forward to those moments and places. Skin care products in relaxing rooms where I can disconnect and pamper my self is my thing. This spa and treatment sounds amazing and will love to try this beginning with bubble pure air. Looks like you have a great time and will look into this.
Ohhh Such an Amazing Experience Darling, Love Spa and Face Skin Treatments, and always looking up to Try new Products, Treatments:)

This whole treatment looks divine! I am alwayssss up for a spa treatment and am always interested in trying out new places. Looks like you had the best time!
Wow that sounds like a delight and very relaxing thing to do! you must have had a very fabulous time. this made my skin crave for this kind of treatment. thank you so much for sharing, Im checking out this brand now.
It definitely was relaxing and an unforgettable experience Darlene. I’ve been using the Diamond Mask and oil for a few weeks now and I have seen a difference in the texture of my skin. It’s definitely work getting a few samples to try it out.
This sonds like really great and luxe experience. I think everyone should try it from time to time. Too bad we don’t have them in here!
Thanks for sharing <3
I totally agree Ana!
Just when you thought facials couldn’t improve or evolve, it just did. Reading about this wonderful escape from reality for 45 minutes made me check where they’ll be at next, and unfortunately it seems they’re only available in the US at the moment, but I really hope they make it to Europe soon too (after all, it said Barcelona on the tent, right?). I got to google that bit a more. Then add the VR experience and th 99,9% pure oxygen and it sounds like an out of this world experience which I would love to tae part of. Thank you for letting me in to this wonderful world of skincare and a must try whenever I will be able to book an appointment!
Natura Bisse is actually made in Spain so I am sure that the bubble tour will make its way to Europe soon. And when it does, you definitely have to try it. This is something I know you will love Thomas!
