SkinHealth Spa: Glamglow Facial.

On Saturday I was kindly invited to Skinhealth Spa in Manchester for a complementary facial. I've never been lucky enough to have a facial before so I was really looking forward to the experience. Skinhealth Spa have a few spas dotted around the country and thankfully there is one of their lovely spas in Manchester. 

The spa itself is tucked away in the busy city centre but the second you walk in you become calm and forget all about the busy streets of Manc. The lounge area has a gorgeous sofa and lovely soothing music while you wait for your treatment. I was also given a quick health questionnaire to fill in to make sure I was suitable for the facial I had gone for. Once I'd filled my details in I was taken through to my treatment room.

The lady doing my facial asked me about my skin concerns and explained that the Glamglow facial would be perfect for me. The facial began with a thorough cleanse of my skin, a light exfoliation and a good massage, which was extremely relaxing. It was then followed by the Glamglow mask being applied. I've tested the Glamglow mask before and was a little unsure about it, but after Saturday's experience, I am without a doubt a Glamglow convert. I was left to listen to soothing music and relax, while my mask dried.

Once I had fully dried, it was time to remove my mask. It took a good few goes to get the mask off, but my skin couldn't have felt fresher. After the mask was removed I had a toner, moisturier and serum-like product applied to my skin to finish of my wonderful facial. 

My skin looked 'glowing' after my facial. So much so I refused to put any make up back on ans wandered around rainy Manchester bare-faced for the rest of the day. My pores looked visibly smaller and my skin looked transformed from it's dull appearance. The last photo is my skin, make-up free after my facial.

The facial lasted around 20-30 minutes and was the most relaxing half an hour I've had in a very long time. I would certainly recommend going for a facial if you are feeling stressed out and now I'm looking forward to trying out other facials in the future. I'm a complete convert.
