the face of vancouver
Vancouver women are known for their great skin.
Is it the fresh mountain air? All that exercise? The rain?
Or is it OptaDerm, the local skincare company that has been quietly mixing its pure concoctions and performing legendary European facials (just $38) from its West Broadway lab since 1987?
Top sellers at the sleek, newly redesigned clinic include the PH correcting cleanser, sensitive mascara, and the Microderm gel that gently exfoliates your skin while you sleep.
Hot out of the lab is Deluxe Eye Cream made with plant polypepticides, the newest skincare breakthrough since Vitamin C and Retynol, to soothe puffiness, correct dark circles and fight wrinkles all at once.
And that $38 facial performed while you relax in a Frette waffle robe? OptaDerm founder (and bio-chemist) Dean says it's "exactly an hour, so you can fit it in like a fitness class."
Somebody understands Vancouver women alright.
OptaDerm Skin Care Clinic, #340 - 2184 W. Broadway, 604-737-2026.
