Sorbet Grande Facial at Sorbet Camps Bay

I have to admit, it had been a while since my last facial and by looking at my skin, it was no secret! It was dull, dry, showed signs of pigmentation and redness. So, when I was offered the opportunity to try out the Sorbet Grande Facial at the Camps Bay branch, I was so excited to try it out!

I was greeted at the Sorbet Camps Bay by friendly Otelia, she would be my therapist and wow was she wonderful! Not only was she extremely knowledgeable about skincare and the Sorbet range, she was also wholly focused on my comfort for the entire 75 minutes.

Otelia and I began by chatting about my skin concerns (dullness, dryness, redness...the list goes on) and we settled on using a combination of the Salon Skin and Hydro Skin Range. I appreciated the initiative she took to combine two ranges to address my concerns.

She began by cleansing my skin with a Salon Skin 3-in-1 Cleansing Oil (R130) - to remove makeup, dirt, oil and impurities, followed by the Salon Skin 3-in-1 Foam Cleanser (R90) - to remove traces of oil from the oil cleanser. I loved the oil cleanser particularly - my skin felt extremely clean after using it and I will definitely be purchasing this product when my current cleanser runs out!

Otelia had more in store for me - whilst using a humidifier to open my pores, she began exfoliating my skin with the Salon Skin Daily Skin Polish Powder (R220). The exfoliator is chemical in nature - it contains Salicylic Acid and Rice Powder - so is general but effective. The rice powder assists in brightening skin.

After exfoliation, Otelia applied the Sorbet Salon Thermal Rescue Masque (R110)- the masque had a cooling effect and is developed with essential oils to help inhibit the formation of freckles and brighten skin.

Post masque- Otelia looked at areas on my face that showed signs of pigmentation and applied the Sorbet Salon Skin Even Tone Corrector (R220) which is enriched with Whitonyl and Vitamin A, C and E to lighten and brighten. She then applied the Salon Skin Day Perfecting Cream (R200) to complete the treatment.

Did I forget to mention the massage?! One of the best neck and shoulder massages I've ever had- Otelia had hands that worked magic!

I cannot rate this facial any higher- the sheer luxury of it does not match the affordable price of R380 (I paid a little less because of the Winter 20% off Special - ends 31 July!). I left feeling super relaxed, and my skin was luminous from the hydrating properties of the Sorbet Salon Skin and Hydra range. I would recommend this facial as well as the accompanying products! Thank you Sorbet Camps Bay and Otelia!
