A few weeks ago, I got to know that the skincare department at Sephora was offering 1 hour in-store facials as a part of their Skin Fit program. So of course, I signed up!
“Unveil beautiful glowing skin with a 60 minute innovative facial service. Receive a personalized consultation that includes a customized peel and/or mask as well as a non-evasive, hydrating oxygen infused facial. Complimentary with a $75 purchase. “
I had a really amazing employee do the facial – he was considerate, kind and knowledgeable. We started off with a mini consultation and he asked me what my main skin concerns were and if there was any products in particular that I wanted to try out.
He then went and picked up some products and came back to prep me. He gave me a headband so that my hair was pulled back and away from my face and then he reclined the chair so I was basically flat. Part of it was also the “hydrating oxygen” which he explained to me! It’s basically an airbrush machine that has O2 running which helps to open the pores and they become more receptive to products. After he airbrushed my face with the oxygen, he went along and airbrushed serum. He told me that there are certain serums which Sephora has approved to use with the machine – which I thought was a really cool and a good idea for an airbrush machine use besides makeup.
The only downside of this facial is that it is in-store so there are customers walking around you, staring at you, asking questions and it isn’t exactly “relaxing” since you’re under the normal store bright lights and listening to the store music.
Overall, I think it was a great way to try out products that you’re interested in buying or one’s that are maybe more pricey and you just want to see how it feels on your skin! For a $75 in store purchase to get this 60 minute facial – I think it’s a great idea! Unfortunately, the $75 cost applies to everyone, no freebies for VIB Rouge members 😦
Here’s the products he applied (not in order) :
- Peter Thomas Roth Hyaluronic Cloud Hydra-Gel Eye Patches
- Fresh Seaberry Nourishing Hand Cream (he gave me a hand and arm massage while the mask was on!)
- Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask
- Kate Somerville Age Arrest Eye Cream
- Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Mask
- Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser
- First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads
- Clinique Clarifying Lotion
- Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum
