Seeing all the facial options out there can be over-whelming. Do they all do the same thing? Will having one make a difference, or do I need a series of facials to see benefits? Will having a deep cleansing facial make me break-out? We get these questions all the time and completely understand where you’re coming from. The best way to know what is best for you and your skin is to have an open conversation with your aesthetician wherein they can analyze your skin in-person and speak with you about your goals, lifestyle, and budget. However, it’s always nice to do some research yourself and generate some knowledge and questions before heading in. Check out this list of our favorite facials to find the one that is right for you! We have organized them by skin concern to take the guess work out of the equation. Each concern is accompanied by two options for different budgets and specific needs. (We also give you some insider information about each option!) 

What is your main skincare concern? 

Acne/Blemishes, Large Pores, or Oily Skin 

Acne Treatment Facial $95 

Oxygeneo 3 in 1 Super Facial (with extraction and mask) $150 


Anti-Aging, Wrinkles, or Loose Skin 

Anti-Aging Treatment Facial $120+ 

MicroNeedling for Face and Neck $300+ 


Dry, Flaky, or Dull Skin 

Microdermabrasion $80 

Oxygeneo 3 in 1 Super Facial $130 

Jane Iredale: LipDrink $24 

Not only does this lip balm hydrate your lips, but it protects against premature aging caused by the sun. The sun’s UVA rays can make lips thinner and less plump, but the SPF in this formula helps to combat those effects. This balm comes in a variety of colors from clear to dark plum and always has a fresh lemon scent.  

I love my muff: Soft $18 

Whether you’re waxing, shaving or neither, this lotion helps to PH balance your intimate areas and leaves behind a botanical scent, so you feel fresh all day. If you are shaving or waxing, this product helps to sooth irritated skin, reduce inflammation and combat ingrown hairs.  

Advanced Nutrition Programme: Skin Accumax $160 

This award-winning supplement is great for all skin types, but especially those with an uneven complexion. Used primarily to treat acne and blemishes, this supplement evens out the texture and tone of your skin across your whole body. For this reason, it is also a great option for treating back blemishes.  

Intense Moisture Serum $90

This moisturizing serum can be used day or night, in any season, and on any skin type. We love the lightweight texture which looks great even under makeup.  

 

Hyaluronic Acid – Is it Worth the Hype?

What is it?

Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring substance within the body, used to lubricate the tissues. Research has shown that its properties may be able to improve skin texture, accelerate wound healing and lessen the signs of aging when injected or applied topically. One of the main reasons that Hyaluronic Acid has such a plumping effect is because a single gram of the substance can hold up to 6L of water! This product can now be found in a variety of skin products, including the GM Collin Hyaluronic Filler Serum. 

Is this product right for me?

Since Hyaluronic Acid is naturally occurring in the body, there is a very small chance of reaction or sensitivity, making it a suitable product for most people. Topical versions of the product provide hydration through water retention rather than oil, also making it suitable for dry, combination, or oily skin types. That being said, Hyaluronic Acid mainly addresses signs of aging and is usually recommended for clients over 30 years of age. 

The Bottom Line

Hyaluronic Acid seems to be everywhere lately, but this product is no passing trend. Hyaluronic Acid has been a trusted staple of the Cosmetic industry for years and has undergone countless research studies across the world. It’s a trusted product for aestheticians due to its ability to hydrate the skin, protect from external irritants, minimize fine lines, and give an overall plumping effect—all in one!
