“It had been a while since I last went to a facial, which was probably in February, so my skin was dying to be pampered. Although I had been taking my skincare seriously during the quarantine period and generally had no pressing concerns, I did notice some puffiness and water retention due to the food that I was consuming daily, hence the Neal’s Yard Remedies Oxylift Carat Facial was just what I needed to try.”
“This facial is a lifting treatment that helps in reducing bloating and diminishing the appearance of laugh lines. It uses the frankincense range that works to hydrate and revive fatigued skin. Meanwhile, the oil used for massage is a formula that’s created using essential oils. The treatment had all the regulars that you would expect in a facial – cleanse, steam, extract, tone, mask, and moisturise – but what sets it apart were two things.
Usage of an oxygen spray to help infuse skincare deep within the skin and boost up collagen production.
The 20-minute facial massage using a ReFa carat roller to de-puff, firm and lift facial contours.
The therapist suggested doing one side of my face first for comparison and I was really surprised at the immediate lifting results and how much of the swelling that had gone down.”
“I was also treated to a ten-minute shoulder massage that had me in a perfect state of relaxation. All of the stress and worry that had accumulated in the past four months melted away in that instant. I left the treatment room feeling refreshed and my skin radiant from the boosted blood circulation. Definitely try this out if you’re worried about how bloated your face looks and want instant lean and toned results.
