If you’ve been following me for a while now, then you’ll know how obsessed I have become with skin care. I used to have a mindset that anything can be covered with makeup, but eventually I realized that great skin is the real MVP here. It’s just impossible for makeup to look its best if your skin isn’t looking its best as well.
With that being said, I’m always on the lookout for effective new skin care products that help in my quest for perfect skin. And recently, the brand Dermalogica has entered my life and I think it’s safe to say that it has now made a permanent spot on my shelf of skin care products. But what Dermalogica has offered me that has really changed my skin the most, was their Special Skincare Treatment that I am so happy I was able to document so I could share a glimpse of my experience with all of you!
I came in thinking that it would just be like any other facial I have experienced, but I was wrong. This facial felt very luxurious from start to finish and it was a great way for me to experience and feel the difference that Dermalogica products really make on the skin. Specifically, what really got my attention was their Pre-Cleanse, Cleanser, and HyrdaBlur the Charcoal Mask that Ms. Riza used on me. I'll make a separate review on these products, but for now I really wanna give attention to the amazing facial! Check out the short video below.
As you will see in the video, what was the main difference of Dermalogica's facial, was the Face Mapping, which is Dermalogica's unique way of analyzing each person's skin. They divide your skin into 14 different zones, and tell you what skin concerns are present in each one. For me, I found out that I have an uneven skin tone around my forehead and neck, as well as dehydrated skin. Upon analyzing my skin, Ms. Riza then created a skin care regimen for me and recommended the products I need for my skin.
What I also liked about the facial was that Ms. Riza didn't use any tools for the extraction of a few of my pimples and blackheads, she just used her fingers! I asked her why, and she said she prefers using fingers because they don't leave scars and scabs unlike some tools do. True enough, I didn't notice any marks from the facial, but I was left with really supple and smooth skin. This really pleased me because I'm used to having quite a few scars after getting facials. I usually end up having to cover these scars for a few days with makeup, but this wasn't the case with the Dermalogica facial at all. I ended up not even wearing any makeup the following days just cause my skin was looking soooo good.
I highly recommend giving Dermalogica's facials a try if you have some skin concerns, or even if you just feel like giving your skin a boost! The effects of the facial last for weeks and I truly believe that when it comes to your skin, there are really some things that you cant just do at home. The facials range from Php1200 to Php2200 and can be done in their Rustan's Makati, Shangri-La, and Alabang branches.
