"Give me the penis!" Sandra Bullock told Ellen DeGeneres during a recent appearance on her daytime TV show.

The actress wasn't talking about *that* penis, on the contrary, she was talking about celebrity aesthetician  Georgia Louise's Hollywood EGF Facial -- or the 'penis facial' as many of Hollywood's elite have dubbed it. 

"I wanted to give [Sandra] something that would transform her skin without the need to undergo lasers, so I loaded up her bespoke facial with something that would give her long-lasting results," Louise said. "Within weeks her make-up artist, Whitney, and castmates wanted to know the cause of her amazing, glowing skin ... and from that moment onwards the Hollywood EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) Facial was born!"

The 'penis facial' was born while Bullock was filming "Ocean's Eight," but it went absolutely viral when her co-star Cate Blanchett revealed details of the regimen during an interview with Vanity Fair back in March.

Of course, after writing an article about Blanchett's Vanity Fair interview, I became intrigued by the 'penis facial' and promised myself that if there was ever an opportunity to try it, I'd jump on it. Flash forward nearly two months later, and I was en route to Louise's uber posh atelier to try the 'penis facial' for myself.

As soon as I walked into her atelier on the first floor of an Upper East Side townhouse, I knew I was about to have an experience of a lifetime.

From the moment I stepped in the door, the service was exceptional. A friendly receptionist already knew my name and greeted me with a warm welcome as she asked if I'd like herbal tea or water (mint tea, please!). As I took a seat in the waiting area, I immediately fawned over the atelier's decor -- plush white chairs, high-ceilings and touches of gold from the wall art to the light fixtures (who is Louise's interior decorator?) gave it a cozy, but chic, vibe. Even the fancy china that my tea was in was coated in what looked like 24K gold. 

After a few sips of tea, in walked Sarah Smith -- the woman who was about to change my life.

As she walked me into one of the treatment rooms, I began asking her very important questions. Where is she from? How long has she been an esthetician? Is she excited about the royal wedding?

Sarah is originally from Britain, but she has been living in the United States for over a decade now. She was the lead facialist at John Barrett salon in Palm Beach, Florida, before she joined Louise's team over a year ago. And with more than 12 years of experience under her belt, I knew Sarah would work *magic* on my skin.

After slipping into a comfortable towel-like robe ... it was show time! Most of the facials I've had in the past have been relaxing, to the point where I've nodded off to sleep. However, Louise's Hollywood EGF Facial was quite different -- although some parts were relaxing, my nearly 1.5 hours with Sarah definitely didn't turn into nap time. And with a rigorous 12-step process, it's understandable why the facial isn't as relaxing as others I've experienced before. 

First things first, Sarah double-cleansed my face before applying a toner that she massaged into my face with firm, sweeping motions, followed by a chemical peel. 

A layer of numbing cream was applied to my face (to prep it for the microneedling treatment to come) before turning on the LED light which emitted red and blue light -- the red light is normally used to stimulate collagen production while the blue light is used to kill the bacteria that causes acne. As you can see from the photo below, it also makes for one good Instagram photo!
