A friend and fellow writer, the lovely Jennifer Rice, sent me in for a very special birthday surprise last week. I arrived at the Face Place and was welcomed by an uber-relaxing, lovely white space filled with smiling people. There was absolutely no wait time–I had barely turned back the cover of Cosmo before my name was called and I was ushered back to begin.
What followed was the most luxurious, relaxing hour and a half of my life. Aesthetician Angela gave me a facial that took my combination, acne-afflicted skin from sad to glowing like a teenager’s. Erica worked my rough end-of-summer feet from please-hide-me status to fresh, smooth and lovely. Oh, and did I mention that while you rest (yes, I literally passed out during the extractions of my facial. That’s how gentle Angela is!), your pedicure and manicure are happening simultaneously.
When I awoke, I found my tootsies done up in the latest Chanel greeny-gold, my finger nails a beautiful taupe by Butter, and my skin absolutely flawless, dewy, and not even red. If you treat yourself to one special thing this fall, loves, it should a facial-mani-pedi at the Face Place in the meatpacking. And tell them Jensy sent you!
