My First Facial
It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means….time to discuss the amazing products featured at Verve! Last week I had the pleasure of getting Le Grand Classique Facial at a hair salon downtown, Verve 360, that does so much more than hair. Considering this was my first facial, I had no clue what to expect. I ended up leaving with fresh, smooth skin that felt just like a baby’s.
I was impressed with how relaxing the process was. I was taken into a dimly lit room and got to lay on a comfortable bed while listening to soft, peaceful music. I was so relaxed and felt like I could have meditated with monks in Thailand. Also, my esthetician, Miciah, made me feel extremely comfortable.
The products that were used on my face were from the Yonka Paris skin care line. The skin care products are all natural, serving as an anti-aging, anti-oxidant, and anti-pollution treatment. The scent of the products smelled fresh and natural, like aromatherapy. The one hour process included:
- Aromatic compress
- Clay mask cleanse
- Brush cleanse
- Botanical scrubs
- Lukewarm mist with Quintessence essential oils
- Anti-aging treatment
While the majority of my facial was completely relaxing, there was about 1-2 minutes where I felt slightly uncomfortable. Beauty is pain, and if you can’t handle it, say “no” when they ask you if you want an extraction. An extraction is when a metal tool is used to push out dirt that is clogging your pores. Personally, I liked having my pores extracted. In the end, my face felt radiant and healthier. I even got a compliment about my “natural glow.”
My absolute favorite part of the facial was how gentle my esthetician was. Not only was my skin being revitalized, but my face, neck and shoulders were massaged as well. The warm towel that was wrapped around my face was an added bonus. If anyone wants a facial, go to Verve 360 and ask for Miciah. She’ll hook you up with an hour of skin care paradise!
