I'm in desperate need of a facial. I haven't had one in many years. My skin is very dry and sensitive.

Ive wondered if facials are really worth it anymore with all the skincare products and tools people have access to. If you enjoy them ok, but I have had them done on a regular basis in the past and I ever saw any benefits other than it was usually a relaxing experience.

I get them occasionally- maybe 3 times a year- primarily for deep exfoliation and moisturization. I can exfoliate myself using the Clarisonic brush, but it isn’t worth going more than that. I am trying a back facial this weekend and will see how that does. I feel like that might be more worth it since it is so much harder to apply anything there and I tend to get breakouts on my back (probably due to hormones- thanks perimenopause!).

Totally agree. Years ago someone gave me a gift certificate for a Georgette Klinger facial. I felt greasy afterward.

I used to think it was a time to get a deep cleanse and extractions but they say extractions aren’t good to do now. I once got a facial and the esthetician squeezed a pimple I had and it left a scar/mark for months.

I sometimes feel like I might be missing out by not getting them because I do enjoy the experience but In the end it’s not worth it. In my area they start at like $150. It fees like I paid someone that amount plus tip to wash and scrub my face.

Often these facial spas sell a package of 10 sessions for a ballpark price of 9 to rope you in as a captive customer for the next 5 months. But you are not really saving that 10%. In between the sessions, they substitute the more expensive serums and masks with cheap diy ingredients. I could smell the baker's yeast in between the paper masks, and they withheld the serums on some sessions. I get the same result doing it myself at home.

I've never had a facial. I'm wondering if I'm in the minority for this?

Every single month. I switch between a regular facial, oxygen facials, peels, and BR facials. Skin is our biggest organ, take care of it!
