We review: A detoxing facial
If your skin’s looking congested, dull and dry, it could be a sign that you haven’t been eating or drinking right, you’ve been overindulging in alcohol, you’re next-level stressed, or that the environment is having a harmful effect on your skin. Well, recently my skin was showing the signs of all of the above, which is why I booked myself in for the ultimate skin detox treatment.
Check out my review to find out how my skin was transformed by this in-salon detox for clear skin…

What treatment did you get and where?
“I had a Dermalogica Personalised Treatment at Dermalogica headquarters in Crows Nest, Sydney NSW. I specifically requested a treatment that focused on detoxifying my skin.”
How much does the treatment cost?
“The treatment costs $140.”
From start to finish, what did the treatment involve?
“Firstly, my skin therapist Face Mapped my skin which is a technique that’s unique to Dermalogica salons whereby they analyse the different sections of your face and pin-point any skin issues or concerns that need to be treated. She mentioned that my skin was congested around my nose and chin and a little bit dry and dehydrated, so a detox treatment would help to target those issues.
She then removed my makeup and surface dirt and oils with Dermalogica PreCleanse, followed by a double cleanse. She then exfoliated my skin with the new Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant which helps to open your pores, and uses charcoal to draw out pollutants and impurities that can get caught in them. To help supercharge the exfoliation process, she used bt-micro device which she gently ran over my skin to help the product work harder.
She then applied a hydrating mask that felt incredibly hydrating and cooling on my skin, and then followed with a facial massage which nearly sent me off to sleep! To finish, she spritzed a facial mist over my skin and applied a hydrating moisturiser and eye cream.”

How did your skin feel immediately after the treatment?
“My first thought when I looked at my skin post-treatment was ‘where have all my blackheads gone?!’ Seriously, the Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant drew all of the grit and grime out from my pores, leaving my skin looking very clear. My complexion also felt incredibly fresh, cool and clean, and it has never, ever felt so baby-soft.”
How did your skin feel a couple of days after the treatment?
“A few days later, my skin still felt super soft, and looked really clear and healthy. I already have some rosacea in my cheeks, and the redness was much milder than usual. I think this is because so many of the toxins and pollution particles that were embedded in my skin were removed, so my skin finally had a chance to breathe and repair.”
What were the results like?
“Honestly, I have to say that the results from this facial are like no other facial that I’ve had before – and I’ve had many in my time!. My skin has never looked so clear and my pores looked barely existent!”
Who would you recommend this treatment for?
“I would recommend this skin detox facial to anyone whose skin is feeling and looking clogged, dry and dehydrated, irritated, and in need of a BIG pick-me-up. This treatment will do the trick.”
