Sooooo what if I told you that you could run out and enjoy a facial in 10 minutes flat? Let’s not beat around the bush here…because you can! You see, over the weekend I was treated to a super, quick mini facial thanks to the babes at Dermalogica and of course I was a little sceptical about the whole ‘this will only take 10 minutes’ type of thing, but they weren’t lying.
Bonus: I was feeling super crap and busy over the weekend so it was a pretty good pep me up that didn’t require me to lay there for ages and eat up all my time. You feel? Like, we’re all busy! Places to be, Netflix shows to watch etc…
ANYWAY, this is not a sales-y type of post. The whole facial experience probably amounted to half a real facial experience (it’s actually so hard to Zen out in the middle of David Jones) but for a quick boost and a little lecture on beauty it was a pretty good break from all my Netflix shows…JOKES. I’m in the middle of exams #help.
Essentially what Dermalogica are doing are express facials, and for a quick facial, I actually found them to be quite tailored to your skin, plus you can chat to the skin therapist about your skin concerns and get her to recommend stuff like I did.
(My request went somewhere along the lines of…“just make me look like Angelina Jolie.” Super achievable.)
The facial is only $15 too – which in the end is redeemable on products. Sooooo it’s kind of free (girl logic).
First you fill out a skin health, face mapping type form and then depending on what you want to achieve you can choose between the six different treatments below:
Dewy Skin* – Limited time only!
Go from dull to dewy in 10 minutes. Featuring NEW Phyto Replenish Oil, this Face Fit helps achieve glowing skin instantly. Ideal for normal, dry, dehydrated an luck ustre skin.
This express service gets skin looking and feeling its best by creating the perfect skin canvas, the ultimate base for the very best makeup application in just 10 minutes.
Achieve smooth, hydrated and glowing skin in less than 10 minutes. This express Power Peel service is the quick, yet intensive refresher skin needs to look and feel its best.
Rapid Hydration Booster*
Good skin hydration prevents the complexion looking dull and lifeless, whilst improving the appearance of fine dehydration lines. Rescue thirsty skin and achieve a hydrated, glowing complexion with the Rapid Hydration Booster.
We not only see with our eyes, we talk with them too! Expression lines and tired skin all tell a story. After this 10-minute service, eyes will feel and look brighter and firmer.
This personalised ‘instant intensifier’, targets and corrects your skins individual challenges and needs to create radiance, glowing skin. This express service is designed to get your skin looking and feeling its best in a matter of minutes.
Naturally, I went with the Power Peel, although since I’m so picky we altered it a little, but not too much. I think the best thing about this service though, is that if you have been keen to try a few Dermalogica products then this is a super easy way to do it. You can ask a gazillion questions, test the product on your skin, takeaway mini samples and see the results following the express facial for yourself when you leave (without buying everything and then realising that the products just weren’t for you.)
I fell in love with two products when I was there the new Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant – $68.00 which I found to be super cleansing without stripping my oily type skin and the Dermalogica Skin resurfacing Cleanser – $63.00 which is meant to be killer for anti-ageing and super gentle too.
Only downfall is that you do have to sit in the middle of a department store while somebody takes your makeup off. I went at the end of the day which was perfect, because I could leave and keep all the goodness on my skin without having to put anything else back on which I would highly recommend. Also; if you’re after a real deal facial experience then this def. isn’t for you.
It’s 10 minutes for a reason! Quick, snappy and to the point. Perfect for busy ladies. Also; you learn a heap about Dermalogica products and get a super close 411 with a skin therapist which you won’t have when you’re just adding stuff to cart online. Perfect as the seasons change too and we need to change our skincare.
Anyway, I think that’s it!
Oooh Ps. Every time Dermalogica launch new products, they launch a new Face Fit to go with it too. So keep your eyes peeled.
Tell me babez, have you tried these? Would you? What are your favourite Dermalogica products?
