Most people probably think that as a skincare blogger I’ve had a million professional facials or at the very least get one on a regular basis. Truth be told I’ve only had one and it was about 15 years ago. Trust me, I’m as shocked as you are! I mean you would think I would have a facialist on speed dial! Of course part of the reason is cost. But, I already spend a small fortune on skincare products so I could easily allot a portion of those funds to getting a facial on a regular basis. I came to the conclusion that the only reason I wasn’t getting a facial on a regular basis was most likely out of fear. I was afraid they would use something on my oily skin that was way too heavy and I would wake up the next day with a face full of blemishes, I’ve heard all the horror stories!
First thing you should know about Hari Prakash Boyd is that she has AMAZING skin. The kind of skin that only Photo Shop can give you and the kind of skin that I (and the rest of the population) can only dream about. Second thing you should know is that she is the real deal. She’s an extremely knowledgeable master Aesthetician, she knows skin and she makes it her job to know yours. Hari doesn’t just jump into a facial. She takes the time to ask you questions about your skin. She asks what kind of skin issues you’re having, she asks about the products you’re using and she even asks if you have any other health issues going on and what medications you’re taking. All of which can greatly affect the health of your skin. Hari then uses that information to recommend a facial specified for your skin type and to select the skin care products that will be the most beneficial.
For my curated skin treatment Hari chose one that consisted of an exfoliating cleanse using COSMEDIX Purity Solution Oil Cleanser and Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser followed by a COSMEDIX Pure Enzyme Exfoliating Mask and Detox Mask. She even did a lip mask which was totally unexpected! She then finished up with an amazing facial and neck massage using her very own SamayaOrganics Unrefined Organic Facial Oil which is a curated, small batch, organic, raw, skin oil which is as equally incredible as she is.
After just this one treatment my skin looked clearer, brighter, rejuvenated, more radiant and never felt more soft and smooth! Not to mention I felt extremely relaxed. Not only is she a master facialist she is equally amazing at massage. I’ve never had a facial massage before and I had no idea what I was missing out on. She was also able to work out some pretty gnarly knots in my neck that have probably been there for a good while. Thank you Hari! The cost of the curated facial treatment is $95.00 which includes the extensive massage work and is WORTH EVERY PENNY!
IT. WAS. AMAZING.
I’m already looking forward to having Halo Peel next as well as the Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peel for my decollete. I will being doing blog posts on those treatments too so stay tuned for all the details!
