Hi beauties! I hope everyone had a stunning weekend. I just finished exams and had my first week of holiday. Instead of relaxing I was running around like crazy. One of the lovely things I got to do last week is get a Dermalogica Facial at one of the Sorbet Salons.
I tend to neglect my skin a little bit during exam time, because let’s be honest – who has time to exfoliate and put on masques while you have to stress about double integrals. So I was really excited when Dermalogica invited me to have their Classic Facial at one of the Sorbet Platinum Salons. After a couple of gruelling weeks of exams my skin and I really needed it!

You should go for a facial at least twice a month, but they can get quite pricey so sometimes I just do a home-facial. I have been to numerous salons for facials before but nothing was quite like this. The Sorbet salon was located in Clearwater Mall and is one of their Platinum Salons. What makes them Platinum are the specialists working at the salon- they are all extremely qualified and had to write special exams and practical’s to achieve this status.

Upon arrival you have to fill out a few forms about your skin and facial-habits. Afterwards I was ushered into the treatment room.The salon itself is pretty and neat- everything you can expect a high-quality salon to be like. It was the facial and my therapist that really blew me away.

Mbali(my therapist) made sure to ask me everything about my skin- starting from my diet, down to what foundation I use. She then face-mapped me (it is mandatory for any new client, even though I’ve been face-mapped at an event before) and picked out the products for the facial. She began with Pre-Cleansing my skin (double cleansing is the way to go peeps!) and carried on for almost two hours! Now the facial is only an hour but Mbali said that if time allows her, she prefers to go on a little bit longer and do as much pampering as she possibly can. All of the Dermalogica products used were specifically catered for my skin, and Mbali made sure to explain why she was using each of them. At every Sorbet salon, while the masque is on during your facial you get to choose between a ten minute hand, feet or back and shoulder massage- score!

The wonderful thing also is, after your first Dermalogica Classic Facial at any Sorbet Salon, you get about a week worth of Dermalogica samples of the products that have been used on you during the facial. I have been using mine (and I am obsessed with the Daily Microfoliant) and it’s totally convinced me to get the full-sized version of it. I floated out of the salon, super happy and my skin was glowing. I even dared to walk around Clearwater mall with nothing except the Dermalogica Cover Tint on. And I never go out without some mascara and lipstick!

I would highly recommend treating yourself to this facial before the craziness of the festive season. You can get the facial at any of the Sorbet salons, but if you have time or live close by, go to the Sorbet at Clearwater and ask for Mbali-she is worth every cent!
