Craving some relaxation and pampering, hoping to beat the end of winter blues and get some glow back to my seemingly lacklustre skin, I visited Skoah in Yaletown for my first ever facial yesterday.
I opted for their Facialiscious treatment, as it seemed to be the best for a facial virgin such as myself.
The treatment was 75 minutes long and included cleansing, three masks, a skin analysis, some (fairly painless) extractions and divine massage of the face, shoulders, neck, scalp, arms, hands, legs and feet. I loved settling into the cozy, heated bed between warm blankets and being given soothing cleansing and exfoliating treatments while I gently fell into relaxed bliss.
My skin felt so smooth and soft afterwards. I got up, got dressed and looked in the mirror, examining my face closely. I couldn’t believe how incredible my skin looked… and without any makeup!
Skoah doesn’t get side tracked with a bunch of unnecessary pomp and pageantry. They give you all the relaxation of a high end spa, without the superficial, stuffy feel. They are laid back, relaxed, easy to talk to and they know skin care. Plus, their products are simple, easy to understand, do what they promise and smell absolutely delicious.
I walked out feeling fantastic. I got the amazing, ethereal glowing skin that I had hoped for and purchased a bag full of products to use at home. Knowing how important it is to take good care of your skin (especially now that I am not in my 20s any more), I definitely plan to make Skoah “workouts” a regular part of my skin care routine.
