Firstly, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the new mommies, grannies and god mommies out there! Today we celebrate all the years of putting up with tantrums, attitudes, and memories of laughter, love, surprises and everything else in between.
I for one know that I have given my mom grey hairs, an occasional wrinkle (not that she has many) and of course, I have been accountable for all the marbles that she has lost over the last 24 years. Apparently I WAS an absolute terror and my “terrible two’s” lasted all the way until I was 22!
With the excitement of becoming a new mom myself later in August this year, and realizing that I MIGHT have a Naughty Nelly of a child on my hands, I decided to treat my mom and myself to a Skin Evening and Brightening Facial at Hey Gorgeous (Bayside Mall) to celebrate Mother’s Day and hopefully reverse all those years of stress and apparently the odd “wrinkle” that I caused.
We started off with the Atlantic sea kelp & Brown rice cleansing powder for a pre cleanse and skin polishing, you know for all the years of stress. This mask was left on our skin for 1 minute and was then massaged in with a cleansing brush. While this mask was getting to work we could totally feel our faces tingling and our skin was already feeling so much happier! After that, our masks were wiped away with warm water.
The Peach and Rosehip seed cleanser was applied next. This cleanser smelt amazing! There were whiffs of maple syrup and orangey wafts of deliciousness, and not to mention the subtle sweetness of the peaches in the air! While the snouts were enjoying these smells, our faces were having this concoction massaged in with the cleansing brush.
After that, our moment of heaven was wiped way with the Vitamin C Toner, which is superb for an instant burst of freshness, and helps with collagen production to fight those wrinkles (yet again, for you Mother and all those years of torture) and of course ensures evenness in the skins tone and texture.
The Goji Berry Face Mask was lathered onto our faces next, and that was it, we arrived at our next moment of heaven! Believe me when I say that this smelt more amazing than your grandma’s baked apple pie, and of course has less calories too!!!
The mask was massaged in with a sponge brush which was so soft and helped penetrate those pores. This was left to work its magic over the next 5 min for those everlasting years of “terrible 2’s” before being wiped away with water and soft cotton pads. Our faces felt softer than your average baby’s bottom (not that I have felt many) and I could feel instant relief from my chin area that was misbehaving with a breakout of super painful spots.
Goji berries are also fabulous for its anti-aging potential by plumping up those fine lines and hydrating tired skin. You can’t go wrong when evening primrose oil, shea, mango butter, green tea and honey are having an absolute party on your face! Talk about being pampered!
After being wiped away with water, the Vitamin C Serum (for age defying purposes) and the Skin Evening and Brightening Serum was massaged into our faces and left to sink into our skin, helping with moisture and yes, those little lines, yet again.
Afterwards, the Revitalising Eye Cream was applied around the eye area and was massaged in with a super duper magic wand that was heated up.
We finished off the treatment with the Skin Lightning & Brightening Moisturiser which helps correct the skin tone. And believe me when I say that this tub of awesomeness is the absolute tits! Wafts of Liquorice Root can be enjoyed by the snout as well as shea butter, coconut and jojoba oils which left my mom feeling like the Fabulous Fiona that she is! I also loved this moisturizer and thought that the entire treatment was to DIE for – even though I TOTALLY walked out there alive!
I absolutely love these products being all natural with no preservatives and have also recently found out that Hey Gorgeous now ship worldwide – how fabulous! There was such a friendly warm atmosphere in the room when having our facials done and we were made to feel right at home and treated with such happiness and had plenty of laughs at the Bayside Mall store. We absolutely loved our facials and I definitely cannot wait to go back and try out all the others.
Alrighty ladies, head on over to your nearest Hey Gorgeous Store for your facials!
P.S There’s a 30% discount for all facials done on a Friday!
Until next time,
