Dermalogica Microzone facial from Nu Essence

Times have changed.  We're busier, running around like lunatics all the time.  But yet we don't want to sacrifice having the experts give us some much needed help with our skin.  What if I told you that you could have the business end of a facial that'd have you in and out in half an hour, but with maximum results?

Enter Nu Essence and their Dermalogica Microzone facial!

For €25, you can go in to Nu Essence on your lunch break if you want for a customised problem specific facial.  You don't even need to change out of your clothes into a robe.  I've never had a Dermalogica facial before or used any of the products before so when they asked me to pop in before Christmas, I was lying on the table before they'd a chance to change their minds!

Margaret was my therapist (and wasn't she awarded Dermalogica Expert status along with Julie!) and the treatment started off with her removing my make up and pointed one of those steam machines towards my face, opening my pores so they were good and ready for the next step.  She gave me a thorough analysis of my skin and pointed out things to look out for like the broken capillaries on the side of my nose.  I love exfoliating my face and this was made evident by those capillaries, so I promised to be more gentle with my mush.  I've also some pigmentation on my left cheek so I've to make sure I use SPF every day, even during the winter.

Because it's winter, my oily/combination skin was on the dry side that day, so she used some products to inject moisture back into my poor skin. I left with soft, supple, radiant skin and it gave my face a much needed moisture injection for the colder months.  One that lasted ages if I'm honest.

If you want a targeted facial for your skin's individual needs, then definitely check the Dermalogica Microzone facial at Nu Essence.  You'll be in and out before you know it!  If you want a facial with a bit of pampering, don't worry, they do that too!

  3. Hi Karen! Great post! Love Nu Essence always get my Dermalogica Facials there & the girls are great!
    Just curious to know do you change your moisturiser in the winter? My skin is oily/combination & usually Im happy with my normal moisturiser but this time of the year my skin is dry, dehydrated & just feels like it needs more.
