A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to have a Dermalogica Skin Treatment done at the Dermalogica institute on King West (Bathurst and King). I can’t tell you how excited I was when this opportunity was presented to me! I absolutely love Dermalogica Skin Care, which makes me obsessed with the facials they perform.
The Moment Your Skin Changed. Forever.
“When Dermalogica meets skin, skin health is redefined. Dermalogica is the number one choice of skin care professionals and consumers worldwide. Why? Because for over 25 years, we’ve been dedicated to delivering skin health results through education, innovation, and professional recommendation, not through sparkly packaging, promises of miracle cures, or overblown hype.”
Upon arriving at the institute I was greeted by all the staff and asked to fill out a detailed form related to my skin. The skin therapists do this so that they have a better understanding of your skins needs. They need to be aware of your skin’s sensitivities, problem areas and what results you would most like to see. They also use the detailed form to determine which products are best suited for your skin, so that you can have the best results when you leave.
The institute is very calm and extremely clean. The atmosphere is soothing from the moment you walk in. My Skin Therapist guided me to a room, had me change into a robe in a separate washroom where I could store all my stuff and then sat down with and asked me a few more questions about my skin. She asked me what my biggest concerns were and we got started with the facial.
I don’t know about any of you but I love having any sort of massage or treatment. I’m one of those people who absolutely loves being touched. Pedicures, massage and especially facials. I love having a facial treatment done, it is one of the most relaxing services to receive.
My Skin Therapists began the treatment by first cleansing my eyes and mouth. She then proceeded with a double cleanse of my face, following with Face Mapping. Face Mapping is a great tool that Dermalogica designed to help target areas of the face more intensively. It helps the skin therapist understand the skin better and what to look for in certain areas. We determined that my skin looked pretty good but it was dehydrated which is normal after having the winter we had!
After the Skin Mapping was done she proceeded with a good exfoliation, some steam and some good old extractions. They hurt but they are definitely necessary. I had a few that my skin therapist thankfully extracted for me. Then of course I received a lovely facial massage (which is my favorite thing in the world). I love love love having my face touched and massaged, it is the best feeling ever and puts me right into relaxation mode.
And of course she finished off with a mask, toner and cream. It was a wonderful experience. My Skin Therapist is extremely knowledgeable. While performing the facial she informed me of what she was doing and why she was doing it. She made sure I was comfortable and relaxed the whole time.
I have a pretty high stress level and she made sure to release that stress and make me feel as relaxed and calm as possible. It was a perfect facial. I left with my skin feeling clean and glowing! My skin literally looked flawless. My Skin Therapist was nice enough to give me a complimentary product, Daily Microfoliant. Which is one of my all time favorite products from Dermalogica, so I was very happy to receive it and I’ve already been using it every night!
Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I do hope to have the pleasure of having a Dermalogica Skin Treatment again. I have always been a fan of their products and it feels so much better having a facial done with products you believe in.
Here are some of my favorite products:
- Daily Microfoliant
- Multivitamin Power Firm
- Dermal Clay Cleanser
- Overnight Clearing Gel
If you haven’t tried Dermalogica I highly recommend that you do. If you are unsure about purchasing the product there are many salons that carry Dermalogica and perform the same kind of facial I received! Believe me the facial alone is worth it.
“The #1 professional skin care line in the world. We’re not pretty. Or beautiful. Or pampering. Or luxury. We’ll just give you great skin!”
