My facial person moved to LA last month, so I had my first facial with my new facial person (aesthetician is too formal) last week, and I’m not sure I like her. I certainly don’t like her as much, but we didn’t click very well. It was all awkward chitchat and too much of it. She rallied at the end of the hour when she massaged my face.
No one has ever massaged my face before. It’s a weird thing to do. Rub temples, sure. Gently move in circles while applying products, yes. This was an all-out massage. Both hands on, whole face covered, pressure added. I could feel my whole face contorting as she rubbed and twisted and IT WAS SO GREAT. I would never have put that on a list of things I wanted, but now I want it again.
So yes, very young person with the awkward chitchat, I will see you again next month. And then I might cancel my membership because I have other priorities for that money. But she doesn’t have to know that.
