MiniLuxe’s #MiniFacial Review


Not gonna lie, it’s been a stressful month… or two. It has been quite a stressful winter in general actually, and I’ve been in a bit of a tense funk. So when MiniLuxe offered me the opportunity to try out their new MiniFacials, I jumped on the opportunity.

At just 30 minutes in length, they’re not so long that you need to reserve a good chunk of your day [heck, you can squeeze one in during your lunch break!], but are just long enough that you totally kick back for that half hour and unwind in total bliss. Not to mention, have all of that dry, chapped winter skin tended to!

MiniLuxe Facials

Like I experienced at Drybar, I thought it was so fun to be able to “pick your poison,” if you will: If you’re primping for a big night, go with the “Pre Party Prep” to energize, hydrate, and brighten your face, or if you’re an exhausted pulling-all-nighters student or wild party animal, opt for the “All Nighter” to cool your skin and de-puff. Tons of additional options are available for whatever your skin needs– I myself went with the traditional “Detox Diva” and felt uh-mazing walking out of there.

All MiniFacials include a hand/neck/shoulder massage [hi, my favorite part], as well as vitamin- and nutrient-packet serums and moisturizers. Since they are mini facials, there’s no extracting blackheads or any of that, but isn’t that the least enjoyable part anyway?! For $40, they are the perfect little indulgence. Easily 30 of the best minutes of my month :)

MiniFacials are currently available at all MiniLuxe locations except for Brookline. It’s a wonder I haven’t already booked my next one! (or few…)

Full disclosure: I was provided a MiniFacial free of charge. All opinions expressed are genuine and my own.

    Hi lady! Haven’t been here in a while! I always enjoy coming by your blog! There’s so much positive energy around here. I love facials and I love MiniLuxe, so this seems like the perfect getaway <3

    Uhhhh…pretty sure that this seems like the best use of $40 I’ve heard of in a long time! A teensy bit bummed that the only one that doesn’t do them is Brookline (since my bf lives in Coolidge Corner!) but nonetheless, you have just added a new item to my weekend Boston to-do lists!

      Mine lives in Coolidge Corner as well, so I thought the same thing! I found out that the Brookline location is a franchise– that’s why :) Fortunately the Newbury one is not too far!

    Perfect Winter cure for our dehydrated skin! I may actually book one (with a friend if possible) after your review. Your skin was glowing afterwards that night xo
