Considering I’m a full-blown beauty addict, there is one thing I’ve avoided thus far – facials. Something about someone else touching my face put me off of it and I never could trust that I wouldn’t come out with completely destroyed skin.
A few months back I got my first facial with a well-known spa chain. However, a day after the facial, my worst fears came true. My skin felt red and raw and for the next week my skin was peeling.
So when Kaya asked me to test out their latest face therapy, I immediately decided to decline. After a little explaining, they convinced me this would be a positive experience and I set off for the Town Center clinic for the treatment:
Kaya Organic Face Therapy facial offers a gentle, caring and nourishing feel to the face. Created by expert dermatologists, the facial is thoughtfully designed, formulated from ecologically cultivated plant-based products that meet stringent NaTrue standards. The facial is certified 100% natural and organic. A unique custom blend of 100% natural and organic extracts, including Alpine herbs, the Kaya Organic Face Therapy works in perfect harmony with the skin as part of the 90-minute relaxing experience.
I’m normally not one to sit still for 90 minutes without touching my iPhone but the ambience and technician allowed me to relax. After a ritual of cleansing, exfoliating, toning, massaging and moisturizing several times, I was finally done – but not after I had managed to sneak in a mini-nap.
I awoke to see an exceptionally bright face with no visible redness. The serums/creams were a bit heavy so I did walk out with a greasy looking face. The technician asked me to avoid washing my face for all the wonderful ingredients to be absorbed. However, the next morning, after my usual cleansing ritual, I could really see the effects.
Facials aren’t permanent but I did see the “glow” last for a few weeks. If you have a special do coming up or just want a little bit of TLC, go check this out. And sensitive skinned ladies, this is perfect for you!
