Radford (really does) love skin! My Custom Facial with Wand treatment

*I paid for this treatment myself*

I knew I was overdue for my facial when I could actually feel the texture on my face changing.  I knew I needed to get my face in better shape so short of going to home depot, I turned to one of the best skincare gurus in the business, Vee Mistry. I had the pleasure of seeing her (on my own dime) at Victoria Radford, on Avenue Road.  Spoiler alert:  and one thing’s for sure…..ever since I arrived back at home, I have been contemplating changing my skin care routine, and I’m putting their number into my contacts.

AR 35 treatment from Dermalogica-reveal your best looking skin!

*I am in the process of editing 2 photos for this post…stay tuned and sorry for any inconvenience*

It’s been awhile since I’ve experienced a treatment with Dermalogica.  I was excited to try out the new AR 35 treatment and it was SO GOOD that I need to tell you about it. Keep reading!

AR35 stands for Active Resurface 35 and Dermalogica states that ‘this is not a cookie cutter treatment.’  And I would have to agree…..AR35 is an advanced 45 minute resurfacing treatment that utilizes a synergy of the most active ingredients available in today’s skin care arena.

A 45 minute advanced skin exfoliation treatment with a focus on professional use only Exfoliant Accelerator 35.
• Includes customizable options
• Key benefits of Active Resurface 35:
-Visible results after one treatment
-Minimal redness/side effects post treatment
-Targets a range of skincare concerns
-Customization
-45min ideal for time sensitive clients

key ingredients include:

There’s a reason that this treatment is professional use only and you will feel that as you go through the treatment.  There is a definitely tingling and some heat (oh yeah it’s working!).  The skin therapist will determine the level of activity after a consultation and having a look at your skin. There are 3 treatment levels:

• Power Active
• Intensive Active
• Ultimate Active

After my treatment, my skin therapist (Amanda) applied an oatmeal mask to help soothe my skin. Post treatment, no intense cardio, steam rooms or saunas and you MUST use an SPF!  Thankfully, I use the SPF daily and don’t plan on using steam/sauna anytime soon.

Amanda also had a post treatment discussion with me and sent me home with some products that I promised I would use faithfully. Let’s just say I have a new ‘plan’ in terms of exfoliation and care of my skin…….

My skin looks and feels divine.  It feels like my skin is in my 20’s again, it’s bright, soft, smooth and taut…..I haven’t experienced that in the longest time. I didn’t leave the treatment oily or greasy (which was a huge plus because I had some other appointments that day) and my face felt incredibly clean.  I’m looking forward to having this done again, perhaps in the later part of January.  It was totally worth it…..and if you have 45 minutes and want your ‘best’ skin, find a spa/salon near you that offers this treatment!

I can’t get enough of……In the Buff Spa!

I won’t lie, this post may have a very positive slant….after all, I do know Naomi Mundy fairly well. But that won’t stop me from telling you about the treatment I received in an unbiased manner-just note, that I truly did enjoy the treatment and that should resonate in this post.

Everything’s better in HD! My HD brow treatment at SITAMAA day spa!

I have struggled with my brows for a loooooooong time.  I’ve asked for help with my brows from several makeup counters and even taken a workshop on my brows.  Has that gotten me into a better brow routine? Nope!  The furthest I go with my brows is to pencil them in and hope for the best.

Glam Glow Tingling Mud Mask

I don’t review many individual items from my monthly Glymm Box.  I have even cooled down on the ‘un-boxing’ videos/posts-mainly because they show up all over YouTube and I don’t think it’s necessary to add another review.  Plus, not everyone gets their box at the same time.
