Yesterday, I scheduled a last minute appointment at Ulta for a facial. I’ve been wanting a facial for a while, figured they could squeeze me in, and knew I could find a coupon (which I did for 30% off). I selected the cheapest one:
Dermalogica MicroZone Express Skin Treatments
Maintain your best skin ever with the 20-minute session designed to solve your top skin concerns – a must in between full service.
GLOW – Flash exfoliates to reveal healthy, glowing skin.
REPAIR – Instantly reduces visible signs of aging skin.
CLEAR – Rapidly treats blackheads and breakouts.
I arrived 10 minutes early but my facial started 15 minutes late. I let it slide. Once inside the facial room or whatever it’s called, I completed a form regarding my skincare routine then we chatted about my answers. Of course, my skincare routine is nearly perfect.
I’m not exactly sure what she she used, what she did or how she did it. We were busy talking skincare, local politics and if she should relocate to Chicago with her boyfriend. Note: She totally should since her sister and cousin also want to relocate. And, she’ll likely make more money there.
Any way, the facial was super relaxing to say it was 20 minutes and 20 bucks. She did extract 3 blackheads, told me I should start toning (which I do but not consistently), that I exfoliate too often and should minimize it to 2 times a week which is probably why my skin was a bit dull, that I should use a face mask after each exfoliation (which I never knew) and that I should switch to a hard wax opposed to a soft wax (hard wax would do a better job at grabbing and removing my beard). I could see a difference immediately following. There was a glow, my face looked clearer and a shade lighter. This morning, it looked even better.
I’ll be seeing her in a month when we’ll work on specific issues such as the annoying blackheads and dark marks. For more information on their services, visit Ulta.
