1999 Best Facial

Rosaline Lowe, Rosaline’s

Too often we find ourselves feeling pampered but unimproved after a facial. Rosaline’s approach is no-nonsense (the salon is pleasant, not chichi, and the manual extraction has a bite), but the glowing peaux of her diverse and devoted clients attest to the fact that this woman knows skin. Rosaline offers facials for every skin type and condition, imparts practical advice, and relaxes you with a face-and-neck massage.
