In addition to free teeth-whitening, this year's slew of Oscar beauty suites are hooking up all kinds of skin, hair and nail fixes for A to Z stars. Yesterday we stopped by the Four Seasons Beverly Hills and the SLS Hotel to test-drive a few treatments.

Starting at SLS, the celeb hot spot was serving super-strong mimosas and Moroccan Oil blowouts at legendary stylist Robert Vetica's debut salon inside the hotel's Ciel Spa. Gel manicures using fast-drying, Formaldehyde-free Haute Polish was another perk. Naomi Watts and Miss Europe were in the house.

Over at Four Seasons, the legendary luxury hotel presented its Brit Beauty Suite, celebrating star-favored products from across the pond. St. Tropez tanning rescued pale partygoers and Sanctuary Spa facials offered one-on-one time with famed beauty expert, Nichola Joss.

A favorite of Kate Moss, Charlize Theron, Heidi Klum and Cate Blanchett, Joss lifted, sculpted and tightened skin by massaging inside the mouth and along the jawline to "de-stress the muscles and stimulate lymphatic drainage." It was all pretty intense, but totally worth it if it gets us one step closer to looking like Theron.
