Fantastic Facial at Xac Anthony with Brandy

I just had the best facial of my lifestyle. FANTASTIC. It requires the use of caps, bold, and italic font. At Xac Anthony, you’ll not only leave with skin like buttah, but you also get to enjoy the gorge, super hip decor and drink wine during your service of choice- I downed two glasses DURING my facial.

Brandy Chaplin, Xac Anthony’s resident facial guru, went to TOWN on my face – the entire facial was about an hour and a half and I emerged with glowing, SUPERsmooth skin. It was facial tabula rasa, dolls. It took her about 30 minutes just for the extraction portion of the facial – but she positively PURGED my pores of gunk. I know that’s gross… but is there anything more satisfying? I think not. Brandy also shared this tip: drinking a lot of water a day or two before helps the gunk in your pores come out with ease.

A skincare products maven in her own right, Brandy recommended two Skinceuticals products for me which I’m loving: their Clarifying Cleanser ($28) and Renew Overnight Oily ($52). The latter includes tangerine oil and an alpha hydroxy blend (10% ) to gently exfoliate and reveal renewed skin.

$125 for 55 minutes. Get a mini (30 minute) for $75. Best of all? Anthony, one of the salon’s owners, generously offered to give BBJ readers 25% off when you mention that Amber sent you!
