Post Facial Feelings…

First I felt like this:

At first my face felt raw.  My aesthetician was pretty clear that I would be sensitive, so at least I knew what to expect.  I was so glad she gave me the Milk of Magnesia prescription as it was the ONLY thing that soothed my skin.  Also, I mean it when I say, I really looked like a 13 year old boy.  My skin was completely full of imperfections.  The treatment just accentuated this but strangely my skin felt really good.  The texture was amazingly smooth and tight–BUT NOT DRY.  I knew that it was going to be more sensitive because it was my first time.

Then like this:

The first night I was REALLY sensitive.  The new products are intense (which is a HUGE surprise to me, I assumed that “all natural” meant less potent–100% not the case).  I am following her post treatment instructions to a T.  Vag cream and all.  Each day I look forward to the Milk of Magnesia mask.  Again, I knew it was going to be sensitive because it was my first time.

Now I feel like this:

Today is 4 days post treatment.  No sign of zits, and my skin looks AMAZING.   Totally worth the minor discomfort from the first 2 days.  Seriously, Wonder Woman meets Kim K amazing.  Even my scaring looks so much better.  My SHH admitted this morning that he was really worried that it was going to get worse but I could tell this morning that he was a little jealous.

I definitely have a glow from within look today.  I haven’t worn make up since Friday (pre-treatment).  I also haven’t worn sunscreen-which is against almost everything I believe in.  I have been wearing wide rimmed hats (stand by for awesome hat pics next week.) The idea of putting chemicals on my face right now is really disgusting to me.  I am looking into a new chemical free sunscreen now….let me know if any of you have suggestions.

I am really really really looking forward to my next treatment.  I’m not even scared of the extractions:)

Stand by for full product reviews.  I feel like its cheating if I give them to you after 4 days.

In other news, I did try a new product that I got from my Beauty Fix box before vacation.

Instant Manageability & Shine Boost

• A gentle yet surprisingly versatile rejuvenator for all hair types.
• The unique, clear-gel formula sinks right in to plump up fine, limp strands or calm and smooth coarse, hard-to-manage hair.
• The squeaky-clean version of a deep-conditioning treatment: You get all the vibrant shine and silkiness you could dream of – without a trace of added weight or residue.
• Makes the most of any hair texture, taking lush, light and manageable to a whole new level.
• Paraben & Phthalate Free Formula

My Professional Product Whore Opinion:

Hated it.  I was excited about this line for a while, but terribly disappointed.

I followed the directions perfectly.  I even made sure to blowdry to seal the gel in before bed.

When I washed it out, I felt like there was a residue.  I HATE THAT FEELING.  So I washed again.  Still residue.  GROSS.

“Just one application will instantly revitalize your hair color, speed up blow-drying time, and lock in shine for a sexy, touchable, red-carpet finish.” -philipb.com

Nope, none of that.  Just gross residue that weighed my hair down.

FAIL.

My Professional Product Whore Opinion:

Since I hate wearing makeup, EVEN worse I hate the feeling of leaving it on overnight.  I also hate hate hate Mascara residue.

I love this for a few reasons:

1.  OIL FREE!

2.  It works.

3.  NO RESIDUE.

While its $15 a bottle, it feels like it lasts FOREVER for me, so it seems like a pretty good deal.
