If it's good enough for Madonna...

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, then you’ll know I’m on the eternal quest to find ANYTHING that keeps my skin clear and have tried hundreds (probably not even an exaggeration!) of products to try and combat spots…so far, my must-haves that I am NEVER without are:


As well as using at-home care to clear my skin, I am lucky enough to be able to have regular facials due to working on a beauty magazine. I really feel that if you can afford to have a facial once a month,  then it’s so important, and if I’m not doing it though work then I pay for one to keep my skin as good as it can be. It just helps you really get to know your skin and keep tabs on it, and keeps it in optimum condition. 

Having facials so regularly means I kind of get used to them and they’re always great, but I think of them as maintenance really, so when I went along to try the Intraceuticals Rejuvenate Infusion facial, I wasn’t expecting anything different. Oh how wrong I was!!


 The facial itself is very different, using a ‘wand’ which produces pressurised oxygen to glide over the face, pushing the product applied deep into the skin with amazing results. My lovely therapist, Michelle Peck (Madonna’s facialist who calls on her and her Intraceuticals machine to travel with her when she tours), did half my face to show me the results, before the she did the rest. The half she did was incredible; me cheekbones were popping out, my eyes looked bigger and my skin was GLOWING, and that was immediately, imagine having it regularly to keep that up! I’d had a breakout that morning too and had a few nasty blemishes that had popped up, and although this was an anti-ageing facial, Michelle said I’d probably notice a difference the next day with them too. 

The science bit - shows the wand and the 'bubble' of oxyen
 I actually couldn’t believe it the next morning – my skin was clear!! And any pigmentation was practically gone too – I’ve never experienced that after a facial before, no wonder Michelle and Intraceuticals treat most of Hollywood! The results last 5 – 7 days, and these are expensive treatments which means it’s hard to keep them up regularly if you’re not an A-lister, but when Michelle does the celebs pre-Oscars (literally 20 minutes before they put their make-up on) and suggests having a treatment the morning of a big event (I’m going to try before my wedding later on in the year), or at least the day before to ensure glowing skin and an amazing bone-structure.

Secret Beauty Blogger Verdict: The treatment itself was lovely, really relaxing and the cool bubble of oxygen felt amazing on the skin – if you can experience this treatment yourself then you must – it’s unlike anything else out there and the results are incredible!

  2. I enjoyed following the whole entry, I always thought one of the main things to count when you write a blog is learning how to complement the ideas with images, that's exploiting at the maximum the possibilities of a ciber-space! Good work on this entry!

  5. I have always wanted to get a facial on a regular basis. Unfortunately, a number of things keep me from getting one regularly. I believe in its importance for the skin though.

  13. Tea tree oil is the bomb for treating acne, but it's also great for cuts too. I keep a jar of it in my home first aid kit.

  16. I have a very dry skin and it is one of my biggest problem. So I wanted to have a regular facial or at least twice a month to even out my skin problems because beauty is important to every woman. We feel better when we feel good inside and out.
