Review: Pevonia Anti-Free Radical Facial
Bless me girls and boys for I have sinned! It has been eight months since my last facial! So when the girls at Spa Pevonia invited me in for a treatment I jumped at the opportunity. What a lovely way to start the week! I’ve just arrived back at my desk and can’t wipe the smile and the glow from my pampered face.
I arrived 15 minutes early for my treatment as requested and after being greeted was introduced to my therapist who asked me to complete a health questionnaire. My lovely therapist went through this with me thoroughly, asking me numerous questions to determine the best treatment and finally recommended the Anti-Free Radical Facial. Unlike many who complain about this lengthy process I actually enjoyed it as it made me feel reassured that not only would the treatment be safe for me but would provide the best possible results for my skin type.
I was then escorted to a changing area and asked to put on a white fluffy gown and slippers and wait in the relaxation lounge. The sun was shining in and the music soothed my senses, I was just finishing my delicious fruity tea (I might have had a fresh muffin too) and my therapist came to escort me to my cosy treatment room where I instantly felt relaxed.
I was made comfortable on a divine bed with heat packs soothing me in all the right places and covered in a soft heated blanket….bliss….and my therapist began the treatment.
First she cleansed my skin with a soothing emulsion that was removed with warm fragrant towels. Once cleansed a lovely warm “oaty” enzyme peel was applied and kept warm under steam, while this was working to remove my dry, dead winter skin cells my therapist massaged my arms with a cool geranium scented oil. Once again warm aromatic towels were used to remove my enzyme peel and my skin already felt fresh and vibrant.
A delicious-scented, silky oil was then applied to my skin and for the next 15 minutes I was massaged all over the face and neck. Did I mention the bliss? My skin literally drank the exquisite concoction which I was told contained skin rejuvenating vitamins A and E which counteract free radical skin damage and brightening mandarin. All sounded and smelt very good to me. When the massage was finished (I wished it could have gone on forever) my therapist applied an amazing mask that was thick and warm and invigorating, the peppermint and lavender combination was amazing! The warmth remained as the mask set and then cooled to a refreshing chill. My therapist explained it helped to aid in the penetration of the vitamins and increased the circulation. While this was on my scalp was massaged and I think I may have slept (me snoring?! Noooo!) The mask was removed in one easy piece and my skin felt incredible, awake and so incredibly hydrated. Protective products were used to seal in all the goodies and protect me from the damaging rays of the sun and my treatment was complete. I mentally vowed to come every month for a facial treatment.
More relaxing in the relaxation lounge, they told me I could stay as long as I liked, and I was ready to face my working week.
I still can’t get over how baby soft my skin feels and how vibrant it looked after this treatment. I highly recommend it to anyone who suffers winter dehydration or even if you skin just feels “out of balance”.
