The last time you got a spa treatment, you stripped naked, lay in a dark room, and got touched by a group of weirdos who didn’t speak above a whisper. All for the cost of a plane ticket to France.
When you get over that, give Mary Freihofner a call. We found her in an unassuming storefront where she sticks to the basics: excellent, thorough facials for a fraction of spa costs.
Try her specialty, the Acne Stop Facial. It starts with a relaxing massage, followed by a mask that penetrates clogged pores. A deep cleansing and gentle Vitamin C peel remove dirt and dead skin. We left a little red, but the next day our skin looked clear and healthy.
No fuss, no muss, no much lighter account balance.
Just take her at face value.
