The Fresh Facial

For my birthday, the ladies at Fresh in Beverly Hills (Neiman Marcus) treated me to a facial. I honestly thought it was just going to be some ‘at the counter’ treatment (since it was a gift from them), but I knew I was in for a treat when they led me to the ‘spa room!’

My lovely facialist (who’s name I have shamefully forgotten) began my treatment with the Soy Face Cleanser:

She then treated my face with the Black Tea Masque… which has an incredibly cooling effect:

While the mask was cooling, she wrapped hot towels around the edges of my face…it was the most awesome feeling! As the mask set (about 15 minutes), she massaged my shoulders and arms and hands. I had the best time talking to her… she’s incredibly knowledgeable about skincare. I always love to talk to experts about skin care, I’m always open to learn more about the subject… as I am of the belief that we should never stop learning.

After she rinsed the mask off of me, she followed with the Black Tea Serum:

Then she moisturized my skin with Black Tea Cream:

She explained that what she did for me was a ‘daytime’ ritual. If I was to do a nighttime ritual, then she suggested mixing the Elixir Ancien with the Creme Ancien:

Now you guys know that I make my own face care, but I was excited to try something new. It was a lovely experience, and I’m very grateful to the ladies at Fresh for treating me. I’m already committed to adding the Elixir Ancien to my nighttime skin ritual.

Now, I’ll just need to win the lottery to  keep up the rather expensive habit of using it…
