There's just one small catch.

As if we needed another excuse to visit Sephora, the beauty retailer is now offering free hydrating facial treatments at over 100 stores across the country. Called the PERK Hydrating Facial, the procedure is an exclusive treatment in partnership with the HydraFacial Company. The only catch? You'll need to spend at least $75 in order to sign up for the free facial, but considering all of the beauty basics you can stock up on and new products waiting on your wish list to try, reaching that amount is surprisingly easy. 

The 30-minute in-store service starts with a skincare consultation by a Sephora advisor (who aren't trained aestheticians, but will match you with the right products for your skincare concerns). You'll also be emailed a Digital Skincare Guide, which includes the advisor's product recommendations and application times. To reach your $75 purchase minimum, you can either go with the products recommended in the guide, or stock up on some of your go-to makeup products—how you reach the minimum amount is entirely up to you. 

Once the consultation is over, it's time for the fun (and slightly gross) part. The procedure is designed to exfoliate, hydrate, and nourish skin so it looks instantly glowing by the time you leave the store. The skin-clearing device they use for the procedure sucks up oil and dirt from pores, while adding moisture with serum. According to one review of the service, they'll even show you the jar of excess serum, oil, and dirt that's been extracted at the end. Add this to the list of slightly-gross, yet strangely satisfying beauty procedures any fan of Dr. Pimple Popper should try. 

Ready to sign up for glowing skin? You can book your appointment online at Sephora.com, in stores, or through the Sephora app.
