Spa Week – Facial

Hey Glossies,

Recently, I went to the Spa for the very first time, thanks to the $50 special on all treatments at participating spas/salons. I booked an appointment at the local Macy’s for a Seaweed Infused Facial.  I was looking forward to that, but when I told the esthetician that I have dry, sensitive skin, she recommended the Redness Reducing Facial, basically a custom facial, so I got 2 different types of facials: one for the sensitive skin and another for the dry skin.  Technically, I do not have redness in my skin (I do have hyper-pigmentation), but the redness reducing facial would also reduce the irritation in my skin.

The treatment included:

  • lip and hand treatments,
  • neck and shoulder massage,
  • cream exfoliant,
  • checked for sun damage – I have no sun damage because I am not outdoorsy lol
  • removed blackheads – had  a few

The esthetician told me that:

  • because of my dry and sensitive skin, I  should never use a granular exfoliant because it (micro) tears the skin causing more flakiness and peeling. She recommend that I use Murad Pomegranate Exfoliating Mask once a week.

  • That I  should use Murad Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum to help reduce irritation in my skin.  She told me that I should use day and night along with my favorite Olay moisturizer.

  • That I should allow my skin to hydrate and repair while sleeping, so she recommended Murad Perfecting Night Cream.

My skin is now super soft and has a wonderful glow, almost angelic. 😉 I definitely will return for another facial in the near future.

There is still time to book an appointment or two for Spa Week.  Some spas/salons are offering Spa Week discounts on products as well as on follow-up appointments.

*I will do follow-up reviews on the above products.
