Face Time

Hereís my rule about facials — pay quarterly taxes, get facials. Seeing as September 15th is looming in the not-too-distance future, Iím about to make an appointment to get my face poked and prodded. However, I am super-cheap when it comes to stuff like this. You might remember that I wrote about a certain facial a few months ago. Turns out my complimentary service would have cost $300! Please — thatís 1/2 a pair of shoes. When Iím paying, I go to Mario Badescu, where a basic, 1 hour and 15 minute, deep-cleansing facial is a mere $65. Be prepared for heavily accented Romanian women to wreak temporary havoc on your face (as in, ďnow I veel do ze extraaaaaacshion.Ē), but trust me, the result is seriously glowing. And the best part is the lack of product pushing at the end —although with 8-ounce sizes of the stuff starting at just $12, I could be persuaded.

Purchase facial products online at mariobadescu.com.
