I have found the perfect gift to get your mummy this mother’s day. It is relaxing, beneficial and quiet. Now, what type of mum doesn’t want that!
I was recently invited to Macquarie Medi Spa to experience the new HydraFacial™.
Now they made all these promises to me guaranteeing me that it is a one of its kind treatment in our area and offers cleansing, exfoliation, extraction and hydration all at one time. It is non-invasive and non-surgical and that certainly interests me! So here is how it went.
I arrived and was welcomed by a friendly staff member on arrival, she asked if I wanted a glass of water or a coffee and I knew straight away it was worth coming.
I met Charlotte a wonderfully friendly beauty therapist who took me into a quiet room filled with ambient lighting and soothing music and we discussed my skin and any concerns I have. I explained that I hate the blackheads that have taken up residence on my nose as well as the milia spots I have surrounding my eyes. She assured me that she could help to relieve some of these problem areas for me.
After being given a warm towel I curled up on the bed and waited patiently. Charlotte started by shaping my eyebrows and giving my face a gentle massage. Once the HydraFacial machine was started there were some slurping and pulling sensations on my face and the cleansing was over. Next came the exfoliation and extraction. That was unbelievable! It didn’t hurt at all but I could literally feel the pull of the pores being opened! Finally she applied a hydration which drenched my face in a luxurious cream that soothed and replenished my skin.
The most interesting part of the whole treatment was that at the end of the hydration Charlotte asked me if I wanted to see what had come out of my skin. Of course, without hesitation I said yes! So she pulled out the canister and showed me the magnitude of disgusting, dirty and dead skin cells that have been collected by the machine! How incredible to actually be able to see the physical results!
I have to admit I was hesitant when I was first approached about undertaking a facial by a machine, my usual facial consists of the beautifully trained (and usually well manicured) hands of a beauty therapist massaging my face, but this was really a wonderful experience. My face felt beautiful afterwards and was super soft to the touch. The best part however was that my face was even clearer the next day!
I left not only with a clearer face but with some great tips and advice from Charlotte on how to treat MY face and MY skin conditions and MY dry patches. I love that it was so personalised.
I can genuinely say that my experience of the HydraFacial at Macquarie Medi Spa exceeded my expectations and I cannot wait to go back again.
So without a doubt you should pop down today and book yourself (or your mama) in for this sensation treatment. You will not regret it!
