Last weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting Newbury Street’s Julie Michaud Prettyology, and I could not have been more impressed! This beauty lab is all about the face:: stop in for skin care, makeup application, eyelash extensions, brow tweezing… pretty much everything I can think of that I would ever need to do to my face.
I spent my Saturday afternoon in the lab, being pampered with a facial + eye makeup application. Their facials mean business y’all. This is not at all to say it wasn’t incredibly enjoyable and relaxing, but my Skin Warrior treatment felt more like a dermatologist appointment than any old spa experience. I learned so-darn-much about my skin, and found out I’m doing a lot wrong [#oops!]. Lead Medical Aesthetician Jen Chiocchariello is a master of the face, and fixed up my winter-tormented skin while teaching me a ton of new things as well [good morning, warm lemon water with breakfast].
Then it was off to the darling Shalyn Brooks to test out The Eyes Have It— a half-hour eye makeup application that made me feel so glam, despite the rest of my face being super moisturized and embarrassing post facial extractions! [evidence here]. Shalyn got me to try something out of my normal routine, without forcing me to totally leave my comfort zone. I can’t wait to go back and get my eyes done before weddings + other events in the city this summer.
All in all, amazing experience. This is so much more than your typical spa/salon.
And special Boston perks right now: All Boston Marathon runners receive 25% off all products, skin treatments, brow shaping, or makeup services. For anyone who purchases products, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The One Fund for the entire month of April.
