do you get facials?

the daily muse

i finally got around to using my soho sanctuary gift card and for whatever reason decided to go with a facial. do you get facials on the regular? and is everyone getting facials without me? at the risk of sounding overly dramatic, it was kind of a face-changer.

the aesthetician poked and prodded at things i never knew existed, and surprisingly it didn't hurt one bit. the results? complete relaxation plus a new face with completely unclogged pores. minus the gift card, i'll admit it's a bit of a splurge. but seriously-- new face.

I get a facial once or twice a year (usually with a gift card). They feel like such an indulgence, but yes they really are amazing.

I've never had a facial but I really, really want one. One that pokes your face and clears all of your pores and makes you look like a beautiful princess. That totally seems worth a splurge every now and then, right? Right.

Really amazing. I've gotten a few, only when receiving gift cards too. They are a total indulgence but totally awesome.

you KNOW I love this place so much. I try to get a facial twice a year at least even if I don't have a gift card. I just try to budget for them the way I would anything else. They are a major indulgence but at my (ahem) age I think they're kind of necessary. I love how my skin feels after a facial and obviously very importantly how it looks.

the first time I got a facial my mind was BLOWN - I didn't even know my skin could look that clear! It was face-changing for sure. But the price, whoa. I now get a facial every six to eight weeks, but my trick? I book with aesthetician schools - it's a fraction of the cost Usually the locations aren't as glamorous as spas but it gets the job done, AND usually, because they're students, they're extra thorough and will take their time with you. Many times as well, at the place I go to, they'll offer a free (FREE!) manicure or pedicure by a student as well.

It's great that you loved it. It is really so nice to have facials because you face will look radiant and so clean. I regularly have it done with my dermatologist and so far I love the results. I have been doing this for six month now and I don't have plans of stopping it.
