As the seasons change, my skin changes too. And we're not talking in a good way. So when I got the opportunity to head into Joanna Vargas Skin Care for the All Greens with Envy Cellular Renewal Facial this weekend, I jumped for joy. This facial features a combination of organic herbs that work to revitalize and quench the skin. It begins with microdermabrasion with a diamond tip wand.
I was treated to a facial by Joanna herself, and let me just say -- she is the sweetest, coolest, most unassuming person ever! We had a fantastic conversation throughout my facial and I really enjoyed the hour I spent on the table. And her hands? So soft and soothing, I didn't even think the extractions were painful! As Joanna began, she told me that while the facial would be based in greens, she was going to change it up a bit to make sure I got the best possible benefits for my skin. I like that she customized the facial for my skin type and texture -- it meant a lot that she wouldn't just follow a list of steps, even if they weren't the best ones for my skin.
If you do receive the All Greens with Envy facial in its entirety, it includes a mix of antioxidants (yucca, flaxseed, linseed and hop extracts), thermal water (to soften and nourish the skin), paprika (to increase stimulation and skin oxygenation), honey (to moisturize and revitalize the skin) and even chlorophyll (to rejuvenate the skin's surface with bioflavonoids). My facial included a mask made from raspberries, which smelled amazing, tightened my pores and left my skin feeling super-soft and smooth.
The ALL Greens with Envy Cellular Renewal Facial is $175. For more information about Joanna Vargas Skin Care, click here.
