|I have a confession to make to you, my dear readers, I’ve never had a facial before…well I have but it was my first, and it was a week ago. I know you probably feel betrayed. How can a beauty editor do her job without ever getting a facial? I’ve just always imagined that I’d walk out of the spa looking like Samantha Jones circa the Sex and the City episode where she gets a peel and is red as a tomato for days. I know, I’m dramatic.|
So when I decided the time had come, I headed to AMOREPACIFIC in SoHo for what is now the first of many more facials. The beautiful spa is relaxing despite it’s busy Spring street location and is fully equipped with a signature botanical mixing bar for creating regimens specific to your skins individual needs. Fast-forward to Oni, my adorable facialist who kept me relaxed (and complimented my skin) the whole time. I left the spa feeling fabulous and fresh faced ready to take on the Sunday afternoon SoHo crowd.
Since I’m now obsessed with a not-so-wallet-friendly beauty treatment (here we go again!) I’m sharing the wealth. AMOREPACIFIC will be giving away a 60-minute facial to one of you lucky readers. You’ll be able to customize the facial to your own skincare needs at the botanical mixing bar at the spa so that you too, can feel fresh faced and fabulous. Simply send an email to [email protected] with “That’s AMORE” in the subject line by Tuesday August, 25th. Be sure to include your name and email address.
But, if you’re in need of a facial stat, head over to Sephora SoHo this Thursday afternoon for a complimentary skin refreshment. Celebrity aestheticians will be on hand mixing up skin-fortifying mini facials tailored to your needs.
