Peel Away The Years

When joining a David Lloyds gym many years ago I received some 50% vouchers for Saks, which were lost and found in the back of a drawer during a much needed clearance last week.  I decided to take advantage and had an amazing Elemis Facial, it was still valid!

I chose the Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial, perfectly suited to my slightly uneven/spot prone complexion.
Designed by Elemis to target and eliminate:

            Acne and superficial facial scarring: Resulting in uneven texture of the skins surface.

            Fine lines and wrinkles: Resulting from ageing, sun exposure and lifestyle factors including stress, nutrition, alcohol consumption and smoking.

           Uneven pigmentation, such as blotchiness or brown spots: Can occur with age, or as a result of birth control pills, pregnancy or genetic factors. 

How it works: Using three targeted enzymes to accelerate the skin's biological exfoliation process, this 60 min facial is clinically proven to visibly resurface the skin by up to 75% and increase skin smoothness by up to 32% encouraging cell regeneration.

The Treatment process: To start your face will be deeply cleansed and then exfoliated with the infamous Papaya Enzyme Peel,  that uses fruit enzymes to clear dead skin cells.  (A favorite of mine currently replacing all exfoliators on my shelf).  While the potion works its magic you will then receive a wonderfully relaxing hand and arm massage.
Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Lotion is then used alongside three serum applications. Key active ingredients in this lotion include trypsin and pepsin, both natural enzymes that help breakdown dead skin cells.
The first serum is applied before a Tri-Enzyme peel-off mask is smoothed on, this quick-setting mask provides the skin with a deep cleanse and soft exfoliation and helps restore moisture levels. Feeling wet and cool on the skin when peeled off your face immediately feels invigorated and refreshed. The second serum is then applied alongside a soothing cream mask and while it sinks in to the skin you are treated to a neck, shoulder and scalp massage, pure bliss! The final serum is a healing and sealing blend to give the skin a protection boost and finish off the treatment.
Findings: This is without doubt a very effective facial, my skin felt extremely soft, radiant and smooth, imperfections also appeared slightly diminished. I love the relaxing element that the massage brings to this treatment, as one often finds facials that achieve instant results non-relaxing and on the other hand holistic options don’t achieve the same results. This facial has the perfect balance of both, a great one to get your skin into shape for a wedding or special occasion.
