Now that’s what I call a facial! Darphin treatments are out of this world.

I have just experienced a Darphin facial at Beauty Defined. And what an experience! From the moment my therapist Tracey welcomed me to the clinic, I knew this was going to be special.

Tracey asked me questions about my skin care routine and any concerns I had about my skin, in order to determine the best products and facial treatment. I got comfortable on the bed and she looked closely at my skin to make a further assessment. Apparently I have a few dry patches and a few oily patches: classic combination skin.

The facial started with my feet. Sounds strange, but it is certainly relaxing and ensures you are fully comfortable. Tracey massaged my feet with a hot towel before moving up to my neck and shoulders for the same hot towel massage.

My face was then cleansed and a gentle peel applied. The peel was like a mask that dried instantly and was peeled off by hand. This peel removed the dead skin cells to ensure the following stages reaped the best benefits.

Next was the amazing face massage. Tracey used oil and serum tailored to my skin type and the results I wanted. The ‘face gym’ massage was something I have never experienced before. The pressure applied was quite firm but it was wonderfully relaxing at the same time. I could feel my facial muscles tightening and toning with every sweep of Tracey’s hand. The Darphin products smell so delicious and natural that you really do know you are getting the best possible results.

After the massage came the face mask. Again, this was tailored to my skin type. While the mask was on, Tracey massaged my arms and hands with Darphin oil. This really was so much more than just a facial.

The mask was removed and a final product applied to end my treatment. The hour had absolutely flown by and I had enjoyed every minute. My face looked and felt plumped up: as if I’d had a week of 10 hours’ sleep a night! Tracey explained that the products would continue to improve my skin over the next 24-48 hours, so I should be looking at least five years younger by the weekend…

Darphin facials are absolutely amazing. I have already booked myself in for another one at the beginning of January and will be adding this to my list of monthly beauty essentials.
