Facial, oh facial

The best part of a busy day is knowing you are capping it off with a calming atmosphere and some personalized pampering. From the moment I walked through the doors at Damara Day Spa, I knew I was escaping my world to relax in theirs.

After what appeared to be a very busy day, my spa guru, Sarah, greeted me a warm and welcoming smile. We spoke for a while about the condition of my skin, the products I use and my facial history. After that, I was eased into my personalized premium spa experience.

What Sarah exposed me to was a Vivescence facial with added NuFace Microcurrent Treatment. To simplify, it was an hour and a half vacation for my skin. And it was divine.

To break it down, the following was included:

  1. Skin treatment with cleansing milk.
  2. Application of perfect glow exfoliant, which rested on my skin while I had to “endure” a scalp massage. After that was complete, the exfoliant was gently massaged into my skin to help soften it.
  3. Warm towels were used to remove the exfoliant and relax my skin (this was bliss, I must say).
  4. Sweet Massage Cream was then applied to declotte and provide a facial massage.
  5. As if that wasn’t enough, a gel primer was added before using the NuFace Microcurrent on my skin (this was a new experience for me so I wasn’t sure what to expect).
  6. During the SOS mask, I was treated to an arm and hand massage (YES…YES…YES)
  7. She wrapped up with a serum, eye cream and a facial moisturizer.

My skin felt fresh and rejuvenated. A service that especially pleased me was how Sarah sat with me afterward and reviewed my treatment as well as some home care tips. I was even provided a light Jane Iredale mineral makeup application.

Of course I left the spa feeling amazing. I just had a facial. What surprised me the most about this treatment is how I still feel, one week later. I am amazed at how good my skin feels. I am amazed at how even the tone is. I am amazed at how soft and plump it is. Every single time I apply make-up or examine my skin in the mirror, I am impressed by this treatment.

This is a treatment I will most definitely be seeking out again and I would highly recommend it to anyone whose skin is in need of a little pick-me-up. As Coco Chanel once said, “Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, but it’s up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.”
