That’s how I felt after my transformative facial at Complexions on Carter Skincare Boutique in St. Paul.
Complexions on Carter is this quaint and cozy boutique that offers facials, peels, microdermabrasion, waxing & tinting services, makeup applications & lessons. Maggie Miley is the owner and quite the experienced Esthetician. Not only does she provide all these amazing services, she also speaks & teaches Esthetics at the Aveda Institute of Minneapolis on a regular basis, and offers Advanced Education for Estheticians. Wow!
When I pulled into the parking lot at for The Milton Square Shops, I was immediately charmed. If you’ve never been, it’s a quaint European-style complex – adorable. I arrived to Complexions on Carter a little early and enjoyed a cup of tea beside the fireplace. The space is so warm and welcoming. When I met Maggie, I felt like we had been friends for years. She is so easy to talk to, super personable and extremely knowledgeable.
The facial – oh my, the facial. Do you ever have one of those amazing facials where you completely bliss out that it almost feels like you blacked out? I know I didn’t fall asleep, but I was so r.e.l.a.x.e.d. What I do know is that I asked a lot of questions about the products she was using and she explained in detail what the product was, what was in it, what it would do for me and why she was choosing it for me. This was not a cookie-cutter facial. Maggie used a blend of the two product lines that she carries (Image and Lira) to give me the ultimate glow. Microdermabrasion and a pumpkin peel were included in my service. The point where I completely checked out was during the facial, neck and shoulder massage. I could have sworn that there were eight hands massaging me.
I am already thinking about booking my next appointment. Really.
Here’s a little deal to entice you. You’re welcome!
