As part of our Curvy Friendly Salons & Deals I am collaborating with Sam McCauleys Beauty Salons to experience their salon environment and treatments and for the best part, the treatments I have will then be on special offer the following month!
I was a bit apprehensive about going into the salon so after a quick wonder around the gorge pharmacy downstairs (is it just me or is anyone always obsessed with pharmacies), I bit the bullet and went up. Instantly I was made feel so welcome and after I filled in my routine form, Linda brought me down to the treatment room. I was really impressed by the fab red décor and the relaxing ambience. The bed is heated for maximum comfort and let me tell you, there is nothing to worry about with the beds, they also can raise the back on the beds if this is more comfortable for you. I got ready and once I was comfortable and settled Linda came back in and got started. I explained typically what my skin was like and I instantly knew that I was in safe hands. Linda has an amazing knowledge of the products and explained everything to me that she was going to do which I found great comfort in because a machine based treatment can be a bit intimidating but with there two treatments although machine based you don’t lose the touch sensation either as it is all incorporated which I loved.
Treatments: Guinot Hydradermie Facial and Eye Lift
What does it do?: The Guinot Hydradermie Facial and Eye lift is one of the few combined treatments that you can see results instantly. It targets any fine lines or wrinkles you may have. Hydradermie deep-cleanses, oxygenates and regenerates the skin it improves hydration in dry skin, reduces sebum levels in oily skin, and reduces average wrinkle depth in lined skin. It is suitable for all skin types and the treatment is tailored for your skin so don’t worry is you have even the most sensitive skin types this is still a treatment for you.
Process: Once the skin is gently cleansed and exfoliated, Linda applied the carefully selected gels and used the mild galvanic current (the machine) to help the active ingredients penetrate deep into my skin to remove impurities and toxins of which I’m sure there was much of in my skin! The High Frequency action was then used to oxygenate and create an antiseptic effect. Linda then gave me a fabulous neck and shoulder massage and I had a customised mask applied. I really thought this was amazing because different types of products were used on different areas, my chest up to my cheekbones was a mask for sensitive skin, my forehead was an anti-aging mask and my eyes had the eye lift mask. I then had a gorgeous moisturiser applied and was done.
Best results: Linda advised me that for best results to leave my makeup off for at least 8 hours so I chose to have a night in and reap the benefits as much as possible, the next morning my skin was silky soft and glowing! Any fine lines I had around my eyes have disappeared.
I personally would really recommend this treatment if you don’t want to commit to a whole course of treatments but would like to see instant results this is the one for you.
