2009 Best Facial

Anne-Cecile Curot

Our poor pores are no strangers to painful excavations, or to being smothered in flowery-smelling goo. That’s why they haven’t quit thanking us since we introduced them to Anne-Cécile Curot, spa director at Marc Harris’s new Financial District location. A Bella Santé alum, this cheery Frenchwoman delivers what we once thought impossible: After an hour on her table, our complexion was the softest, clearest, and most line-free it’s been since before puberty (and spring chickens, we are not). Better yet, her ultralight touch and gentle organic products from Rhonda Allison left us feeling blissed out, not roughed up.
