A visit to Dangene at New York’s Core Club is not for the parsimonious: a facial costs $750. But during said facial, pores are cleaned, dark spots are zapped away (via the hyfercator machine), eyebrows are tweezed, and everything gets micro-dermabraded. “These aren’t feel-good visits,” the statuesque single-named aesthetician has been known to say. “But once I’m done with your skin, you won’t need to wear foundation.”
Her latest step toward achieving that lofty goal is Dangene Skinovator, her new skin care line. The three-piece collection includes a foaming cream cleanser and a cactus peptin-based gel moisturizer that imparts a silky finish. The star, however, is the “10-in-1” antioxidant-based, anti-glycation serum. “This is the magic,” says Dangene, holding a bottle of the clear amber spray. “It hydrates, exfoliates, brightens, calms. I swear, I can feel its energy in my hands.”
Take-home bottles of the products are now included in her facials, but non-Dangenites can buy them too, by calling 212-249-8172.
