India’s Spa Veda Magazine features
Shizuka New York’s The Geisha Facial®
in their March 2013 issue!
At NYC’s Shizuka New York Day Spa this ancient and prized Geisha beauty secret is artfully revived
through the Geisha Facial®. It is perfectly safe to
use on the facial skin, sanitized through exposure
to ultraviolet light before being milled to a fine
powder. During the facial, Shizuka mixes the
nightingale droppings with delicate Japanese rice
bran to enhance its inherent exfoliating and facial
Cleansing and light pore extraction using her allnatural
skin care line (the Shizuka New York Skin
Care System) further refines skin texture, and the
Geisha Facial® is completed with a hydrating
camelia oil facial massage and a refreshing
antioxidant Green Tea Collagen Mask.
This facial was created by Shizuka to not only promote collagen production, but also brighten complexion and offer deep cleansing and moisturizing using only chemical-free ingredients. Nightingale droppings, a natural enzyme, have been used for centuries in Japan for flawless complexions. Please note, our ingredients are completely bacteria-free! You can sample the Geisha Facial by adding a “Geisha Exfoliation” to any Shizuka new york Day Spa facial for an additional $40. Call or email us for more information!
Representatives from Cuore Cosmetics company in Japan visited Shizuka New York Day Spa last Monday December 10th, 2012 to attend a lecture given by Shizuka.
Shizuka discussed the latest trends in the spa and beauty industry in the United States and highlighted how she was able to imbue a Japanese day spa within New York City’s already saturated spa scene. Among those in attendance were professional estheticians from Cuore Cosmetics as well as the company’s president.
Shizuka also demonstrated her Signature Micro Facial on one *lucky* participant.

It’s that time of year when we see pumpkins popping up everywhere—as festive décor, in desserts, even as seasonal ale! Why not apply pumpkins’ sweet hearty goodness to your skin too?
Naturopathica’s Pumpkin Purifying Enzyme Peel utilizes pumpkins’ powerful carotenoid antioxidant qualities to slough away dead skin cells for a clean, clear and radiant complexion. This peel also includes antiseptic herbs such as cinnamon bark, oregano and rosemary extract that help clean and soften skin. It smells so good, you’ll want to eat it (PLEASE DON’T)!
We use this peel in some of our Shizuka NY facials and also offer it as an add-on treatment.
Use this peel on normal to oily skin and give yourself a mini-facial at home 2-3 times a week. Here’s how:
- Apply 1 tsp of Pumpkin Purifying Enzyme Peel to clean skin and hold face near a stream of hot water (can be done in the shower) to allow steam to activate the enzymes. Massage with fingertips and leave on for 3-5 minutes, rinse and towel dry.
- Rebalance skin with Shizuka NY’s Skin Freshener to help close pores and remove excess oil.
- Finish by applying Shizuka NY’s Oil Free Moisturizer to hydrate and restore normal barrier function without clogging pores.
Our Geisha Facial® was featured in Thursday’s (7/5/12) Style section of the New York Times !
“For this modernized hourlong version, which costs $180, the excrement is sanitized under ultraviolet light, then mixed with rice bran, an exfoliant and brightener. Because the poop contains guanine, a nucleobase, it supposedly shines the skin as well…and surprisingly the next morning my skin did glow.“
A Brazilian cable network featured Shizuka Bernstein on their internationally syndicated show, Domingo Espetacular. The piece, ”Conheça o tratamento com cocô de pássaros feito por Tom Cruise para eliminar rugas”, translated from Portuguese reads: “Learn about the bird poop treatment used by Tom Cruise to eliminate wrinkles”.
Shizuka talks about the Geisha Facial® and gives the host, a Tom Cruise look-alike, a mini facial!
A recent article in the The Huffington Post names Tom Cruise a new fan of our Geisha “bird poop” facial.
“Celebrities keep some weird beauty secrets… but one of the oddest tricks we’ve heard of is the Geisha Facial® — which is made from actual bird poop. Made popular by Victoria Beckham, the bird poop facial now has a new fan – Tom Cruise.”
Aloe Cleansing Gel – A foaming sulfate-free cleanser with a refreshing blend of Aloe Vera and Lavender that gently clarifies the skin while maintaining natural moisture.
Lavender Honey Balancing Mist – A refreshing blend of balancing Lavender and moisture rich Honey helps tone and hydrate the skin while restoring equilibrium to the mind. This can be used as a toner after cleansing the face or throughout the day as a skin refresher.
Lavender Protective Moisturizer w/ SPF 17 – This nourishing emollient cream combines micronized Zinc Oxide to help protect the skin from UV damage with antioxidant Turmeric Root to help reduce redness.

A recent post in truthinaging.com reviews Shizuka New York Day Spa’s Collagen Boost Facial. The reviewer highlights our GentleWaves® LED Facial Rejuvenation technology that’s used in this facial. Nisha Buckingham of truthinaging.com explains:
“I can genuinely say that my skin looked radiant.
There was an inner glow that I hadn’t seen for some time….”
Sometimes we forget that the skin on our scalp needs our love and attention just as much as the skin on our face and bodies — in fact, a healthy scalp means healthy hair!
A scalp massage with nutrient rich scalp serum will nourish your scalp evenly and fully. It may even prove a great way to wind down and relax.
At SHIZUKA NY we incorporate head and scalp massages into most of our facials including: Signature Micro Facial, Classic Facial, Geisha Facial®, Lifting Facial, Lightening Facial, Microcurrent Facial, Ionizing Facial, and Omedeta Maternity Facial.
