Ask any derm, makeup artist, or esthetician and they’ll tell you that a gorge complexion is the result of a great skincare routine — and that getting a regular facial is a must. But booking a monthly appointment at a pricey spa isn’t really in the budget for most of us. Which is why we’re SO excited about Silver Mirror, a new facial bar on NYC’s Upper East Side that focuses on results without the nonsense. And by that we mean they’re fast, affordable, and effective.
Silver Mirror offers tailor-made facials for women, men, and teens and can incorporate peels, LED therapy, masks, and serums. The philosophy is simple: Great skin takes consistent upkeep.
The duo behind the skincare savvy spot? Cindy Kim (we’d expect nothing less from the beauty industry veteran and co-founder of Peach & Lily) and her business partner Matt Maroone.
Kim’s goal is to make healthy skin a habit by incorporating facials into client’s weekly skincare routines. “We created Silver Mirror to make it easy for people to make their skin a priority,” she tells Brit + Co. “Just like going to the gym regularly or getting weekly manicures, you have to perform ongoing maintenance in order to see results.”
A simple, curated menu of services address common skincare concerns and can be customized depending on each client’s needs.
Half-hour maintenance facials range from $75-$90 and include signature, party-prep, mom-to-be, and just for men services. Fifty-minute targeted facials range from $110-$130 and include sensitive skin, acne-fighting, anti-aging, and (seasonal special) winter skin fix facials. Add-on services like extra extractions and LED therapy cost anywhere from $10-$30 a pop. New acne clarifying and skin refining peels promise smoother, more even skin ($150-$175).
“We provide exceptional facials and facialists — you simply stop in for a treatment every week or two,” Kim says. “After one visit, you’ll glow. Over time, you’ll achieve healthy, beautiful skin that lasts.”
Whether you’re a skincare newbie or pro, one thing is for sure: Glowing skin takes work. “Receiving routine professional facials is a must to help keep your skin healthy and glowing,” she says. “That in combination with a great skincare routine and at-home maintenance can have impressive results!”
