Podcast: DeMystifying the Spa Facial (Why I Love Them and the Secret to Getting Ideal Results)

I’m shocked by how few women indulge in spa facials. Tune into My Beauty Binge this week to find out why — as the biggest spa slut in the world — I always opt for a facial at the spa.

  • My Other Favorite Facial: The two-hour (yes I said two-hour) Fire & Ice Facial from the Mauna Lani Spa in Hawaii is two hours of delicious Eminence products combined with tons of neck, shoulder, arm, feet, and leg massage using hot and cold stones. Ahhh…  (Read full review here)
