What we say:
There’s no beauty treatment I enjoy quite as much as a facial, and with SkinCeuticals being one of my favourite skincare brands, I was excited to experience their Reconditioning and Firming Facial.
The treatment started off with my therapist removing my make-up. She then applied the SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser to her hands and gently massaged it into my skin. After a lovely “facial massage” it was time to exfoliate. SkinCeuticals’s Micopolish was used and even though I don’t always like granular exfoliators, this one was gentle enough on my skin while still doing a good job. Next up I felt the fresh coolness of the SkinCeuticals Equalising Toner sweeping across my face. This product has such a refreshing sensation, and it smells lovely too.
Elli, my therapist, applied the SkinCeuticals Growth Factor Sheet Masque and while we waited for it to works its magic, I was treated to a wonderfully relaxing arm, hand and shoulder massage. I went for this treatment at the end of the day and must say that I was so relaxed I almost drifted off!
After about fifteen minutes the mask was removed and Elli applied SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture and Physical Fusion SPF 50. I really liked the SPF as it has an ever-so-slight tint, so it just evens your skin out a bit.
Overall I found the facial very relaxing and I enjoyed it a lot. My skin felt extremely hydrated afterwards and it was glowing when I left the salon. This is definitely a treatment I would recommend for anyone with ageing, dull or lacklustre skin.
