Saving Face

Skin By Caleb 


I want to get back to my blog’s original roots — to cover the-best-of-the-best of everything in Miami so this post is going to be just that! As a Beauty Editor for legit publications (like Allure magazine) for the past 16 years, I’m often asked: Where is Miami’s best foot massage? Go to Rick at Emena Spa. What about the best laser treatment to remove dark pigmentation on my face? Book Holly at Miami Beach Plastic Surgery.  To-die for manicures? Seek out Martha at Vivid. 

How about deep facials? For the past two years I’ve been going to Caleb McGrew of Skin by Caleb at Junior & Hatter in Wynwood for my facials (starting at $95). I’m obsessed with homeboy’s no-holds-barred approach to extractions and he utilizes lancets for those gnarly big zits. He even lets me bust out a mirror and watch (like a total sick-o) as he extracts blackheads from my nose and chin because I’m a weird voyeurist like that. My favorite touch? When he applies the results-driven PCA Skin face mask, he gives an otherworldly neck, shoulder and foot massage so ridiculously yummy…you may beg for mercy. I’ve seriously considered cloning him like Dolly the cloned sheep so I can have a Caleb of my own! Oh dear, I sound like a stage 5 clinger.

But the real high note? Clear and glowy skin and no post-facial breakouts. #Trust 

And, nope, this is not a sponsored post. I love this man. Like, legit, love. He once gifted me an IKEA bath rug because I told him I loved how it felt on my feet. #TheLittleThings.

Call him at (305) 571-8361 for a good time  for a facial, waxing or brow tint. Thank me later!

    About to interview Caleb for a Mod Lux Weddings story and, of course, I landed on a classic Wordy Girl post. Miss you & your wit, MT! xo
