If you’ve never experienced the magic of a ‘proper’ facial then you’re not alone. Self confessed beauty lover and author of the online blog, Lucy Love’s, Lucy Earnshaw made the shocking confession that she’d never indulged in the ritual so naturally we sought to change that…
I think it could be quite shameful, in millennial terms at least, to say that at age 35 I’d never had a proper facial until the other day! Where there’s an option of a treatment at a spa I always chose a massage (although now I won’t as it undoes all my osteopath’s hard work!) or a mani or pedi due to my nail polish obsession!
So when The Apothecary Salon in Tickhill (near Doncaster) invited me across to try out their Comfort Zone Skin, Science + Soul Facial * I hadn’t really fully prepared for just how amazing it would be!
“I was led into a darkened room with just a few candles to guide my way!”
This facial was a dress down, laid down whole hog experience…
…It was all based on my skincare prescription that had been determined from my consultation, all Comfort Zone products are used, the mask in particular was a fave of mine.
When it was over I felt so, so relaxed. I actually couldn’t believe it, I was slurring my words as my brain was just so chill it couldn’t compute what I wanted to say in time! Luckily there’s an amazing space to relax in afterwards and have a cup of tea.
“I’m not a hot drink fan but I must say the Bluebird Tea Co Dozy Girl was just perfect to sip on!”
…As for my skin afterwards? It looked so good- my friends even noticed a few days later when I wasn’t wearing any makeup and said how glowy my skin looked (they didn’t know I’d done anything different either!) and I must admit the soft feeling lasted a good couple of weeks with me using a mask a week in between and some of the samples of the skincare I came away with.
“I think it’s fair to say I’m a Facial convert thanks to The Apothecary Salon!”
