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!
