Clarins Groupe USA has begun rolling out skin spas within Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s stores to help establish the brand’s reputation as a skin authority with American consumers, and boost loyalty and retail sales.
By early next year, Clarins will plant skin spas at seven Bloomingdale’s and eight Nordstrom locations across the country. The skin spas are one-room operations usually manned by one to two Clarins-trained beauty therapists providing one-hour facials for $75, and 45-minute facials for $50, although the service menu and number of spa rooms per store could expand if performance warrants.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
