dermaglo facial at Zest beauty clinic 💆🏻

so on Friday I was invited down to the lovely Zest beauty clinic in Belfast for a dermaglo facial with Lisa

A dermaglo facial is a treatment which combines two of the most intensive exfoliation methods, microdermabrasion and chemical exfoliation to help with many skin conditions such as;

  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • pigmentation and sun damage
  • enlarged pores
  • blocked pores
  • dull dry skin 

I was excited to try this facial but I have to say a little apprehensive as it includes a peel and I had never had this before. Lisa reassured me and talked me through each step as we proceeded with the facial.

I was given 5 mins in the peaceful warming room to get myself relaxed and ready. Lisa rejoined me and we began the procedure with a double cleanse. a pre cleanse with special cleansing gel and we talked about any of my problem areas. Mine is probably the same as many girls – chin and nose areas.

After this we started the microdermobrasion. This procedure is a stream of non-allergenic crystals to remove your skins outermost layers of dead cells. Lisa worked this all over my face then went back and concentrated on my problem areas we spoke of before.

She then used a scrub to remove and brighten up the skin and started the prep before the peel to neutralize the skin. The enzyme peel was applied and was left on for around 4 mins. The skin starts to feel warm and tingly here. It’s a good tingly feeling like you know its working, kind of like the pain you experience from being in the gym? yeah?

After the peel we neutralised and double cleansed again. A calming/hydrating mask was applied and finished with a repairing gel. After the facial i could see slight red marks on my face from the areas we concentrated more on but my skin automatically had such a nice glow about it – the following day even more so i was super impressed!

I would definitely recommend the dermaglo facial especially for people who maybe do have hold ups with their skin, there are lots of different levels of this procedure and courses that zest beauty clinic offer. The facial costs £60 with discounts if you do take the course of facials. Check the fab girls out over on their website or Facebook and don’t forget to look at all the other services and products they supply!

Maria Moore Makeup takeover 💁🏻

As promised in my last post☀%EF%B8%8F🦄✌🏻%EF%B8%8F/ I wanted to share with you gals my makeup looks created last week by the fab Maria Moore!

Maria has recently just qualified from the LA creative college of arts and with counter experience and her ever growing freelance work she is fastly becoming my go to gal when I need my face painted! 

She has done some amazing looks on me over the last year or so and lots of other lovely ladies, check her Facebook page out to see some of the talented looks she has created!
So last week as you know I had two festivals to attend and a blogging event. Maria was ever so good to practise some of her festival looks on me and a beautiful evening look for the west coast cooler style squad event.

WARNING – Lots of pics of me coming up 💁🏻

Look one : me being me, I didn’t quite know what I was wearing to the WCC style squad event last week so together we came up with this beautiful natural and nude face. I ended up wearing navy and it just fitted perfectly. I did also brush my hair… 🙄

Look two – for the first belsonic event of last week it was more or less inevitable that we had to do something mad and colourful. You gals probably know me by now I’m not really scared to wear anything; face or body. We used a lot of inspo from insta and Inglot for this look. 

Look three – for the third and final look I wanted to bring out the green from my vintage kaftan I was wearing, it being another festival Maria got the glitter out in full force to create this amazing glitter eye. We kept the lips nude all week as I was out and about for too long and these lips never fade.

How perfect are these looks for each event I was at?! I couldn’t have asked for any better! Each face fitted each outfit & look I was hoping for. Everyone needs to check this little lady out, she is so fab and the sweetest girl ever which makes every experience of getting your makeup done better especially for people who aren’t as brave to leave their comfort zone. For £20 and under her work is a steal! I couldn’t recommend her anymore 💜

Speak soon,

Lotsa love
