    literally as title says;

    How often do you go to spa?
    I am also curious whether it really makes better skin.

    I wish I had the $$$$ for weekly/monthly spa visits! I can't wait till I get out of college and start earning some real money. :p

    I, however, use my own stuff - I lightly exfoliate my face then apply a mask, and sometimes steam my face. Never notice an overall difference, however...

    ugh! i used to go to my favorite spa a lot more often than i do now, i've moved to another city where there aren't any decent spas to go to =/

    I used to have a body wrap & a massage done every 2 weeks
    & a deep cleansing facial every 4-5 months

    but at home i use home product for more frequent, less time sucking treatements

    Facials? Not at the moment. My facialist is in Houston and I'm not.

    i havent had time for a proper facial in a looooong time :ninja:

    but i usually go to a salon here called MARGY's. they used kanebo, and alikes.
    but what is more important to me is the person who does the facial? and the best one is YOKO who works there :heart:

    Facials are often expensive. :doh:

    I prefer sticking to my old skin care routine which consists of cleaning and moisturizing twice a day. And once a week, I exfoliate my skin (with Clinique's 7 day rinse off scrub) and I put on a mask (depends on my mood, sometimes, I put on the Mario Badescu drying mask, sometimes I use Shiseido Peel off mask, sometimes I put on a Clay Mask by Origins).

    All of those products I use altoghether (they last up to 2-3 months) are less pricier than one single trip to the spa! ;)

    It's certainly worth all the money for the beauty of your skin... ...but I dont think your wallet will agree with that.....! ;)

    Y'all are lucky - if anyone other than me touches my face, then it's Breakout City for a week :(

    How is it that I get sensitive AND oily skin at the same time? Not fair . . .

    once every 2 months at my Chanel counter
    facials are complimentary with purchase :)

    it's just a normal facial though, no nasty extractions or stuff like that

    the extractions suck but they are the most important part to having one.... at least for me... it hurts but I cannot stand blackheads.

    I work at a spa and get facials for free and i still only get them evrey other month. Its hard to go to work on your day off.

    We just started doing a gylcolic peel facial, that I love. This is the way to go, leaves the skin looking so radiant. People kept complimenting me on my skin afterwords.

    If anybody has a Elizabeth arden red door spa near them, i highly recommend them. Its a great company to work for, very clean.

    I give myself a facial 2 times a month...although I think I should do it more often. I would steam my face , extract black heads, rub an exfoliant and put a mask. It really does wonders for the face...

    I get a facial every 2 months. Well, I should say, I used to get a facial every two months. I actually haven't been in for 4 months or so because I've been so busy. I do think it's worth it. I get extractions, purifying, cleansing, moisturizing treatments, the whole gamut. My favorite part is the neck/shoulder, hand massage though. It's heaven!
