You’re nearly asleep when you feel something soft, warm, and squishy rubbing your face.

Don’t worry, this time the balls in question are part of Moko’s new Kalyani Rice Facial.

The luxurious treatment starts with a deep cleanse, exfoliation, extractions, and a mask blended from all-natural, ayurvedic ingredients to best treat your specific issues. Then the real fun begins.

Two satchels filled with warm basmati rice, ghee (clarified butter), milk, cardamom, and cinnamon are rubbed over your face, neck, and decolletage. The mixture hardens into a deeply hydrating mask, which is great for dry or aging skin.

It feels and smells heavenly — kind of like warm rice pudding. Which, we know, might sound a little nuts.

But it taint.

Available at Moko, 55 North Third Street (215-922-6656 or mokobeauty.com).
