We all work out and diet like crazy in the run up to the festive season (1. to wear that sparkly dress you promised would fit by December and 2. to eat your weight in ham without feeling bad when party season is over), but it’s easy to forget about the rest of our bods as we rush around to finish up at work, buy the presents and get our homes in order ahead of the big day.
With an ugly Christmas jumper theme dictating my December outfit, I wanted to find a new way to look fabulous as I wolfed down said ham. Ideally, it would be instantaneous and relaxing at the same time, and conveniently located for gift shopping.
Introducing the Filorga Instant Lifting Facial at The Body Firm which ticks all of the above boxes. An hour and a half of painless pampering, super central in Delfi Orchard and, most importantly, offers instant firmness and skin tone brightness.
The treatment is hinged around the Cryolift, which is wonderfully cold (-18 degrees celsius) and works vitamins, amino acids, minerals and anti oxidants into the skin for 20 minutes. The fancy device, which looks a bit like a mouse (of the laptop kind, not the rodent kind), drives the magical stuff deep into the skin to create an instant firming action without any discomfort. It also works on marked and tired skin, to provide the skin with a festive dazzle.
The other 70 minutes are crammed with top-notch beauty techniques too – here are just a few highlights…
– A welcome shoulder, neck and face massage
– Maria Galland scrub to the face and neck
– Eyebrow shaping
– Face massage with Filorga Day Cream
– Filorga Mask for the face and neck (plus another shoulder massage while this sets)
While I may or may not have dropped off during one of the massages, I left my Filorga Instant Lifting Facial feeling alive! My skin was thoroughly cleansed, my bags were only of the shopping variety and I was über relaxed. My skin was easily firmer and, while I was a little red from the extraction, I woke up the next day with pores that were practically made of tiny cubic zirconias. A few more facials (once a month is recommended, but you get results from the first go) and my pores will be, as Rihanna says, bright like a diamond.
