the best facial in nyc -- hands down -- is at mario badescu on east 52th street.
their traditional european facial is only $65 - it includes cleansing, massage, steaming, thorough extractions (the key to any good facial), and an individualized mask treatment. you know something inexpensive is good when rich celebs are into it - and everyone from jennifer aniston to martha stewart counts on mb for their skincare needs.
beauties, i'm leaving for my cruise to bermuda in two days (!!!) - and i want to put my best face forward. i visited the spa on monday for the traditional european facial + vitamin C treatment (add $35) with esthetician maria. my friend and i joke about "mario badescu face", because the extractions are so good that customers leave look significantly more blotchy than when they arrived. about 3 days afterward skin calms down, and by 1 week out from the clarity and glow is unparalleled. my gorgeous skin is starting to show and should be it's prime for the trip - perfect timing!
