One Perfect Treatment

The land of milk and honey

What the recently opened spa at Santa Monica's Shutters on the Beach lacks in atmosphere (the small nautical-themed space, One, is in the basement) it makes up for with excellent treatments using products from West Coast skin-care master Ole Henriksen. Our favorite is the Sea You Au Naturel: The 50-minute ritual entails a sea salt scrub, full-body schmear of organic honey, a deluge of warm milk, and multiple rain baths from six pie-size showerheads. The theatrics alone are worth $125, and after we'd rinsed away the stickiness we saw that our therapist's claim was true: "The sugar makes your skin softer—and even more delicious." Treatments, $45-$360. At One Pico Blvd.; 310-587-1712;
