How many of you received a gift certificate for a facial or body treatment at a spa over the holiday season? We hope a lot of you did. Now, what to redeem it for? Hmmmm.
Here's a tip: If you are going to use it to book a facial, go for the "Stuff" not the "Fluff". Here's what we see as the difference between the two.
FLUFF facials are easy to spot. They usually sound like they belong on a restaurant menu, not a spa menu. They feature ingredients that are yummy to eat or drink like chocolate or champagne….even caviar. We call these "Fluff" treatments – they're designed more for relaxation, and a certain "wow" factor, but not as a serious facial. If you want real results like deep cleansing or a skin resurfacing, opt for a treatment that's going to infuse your skin with more than just a chocolate bar.
STUFF facials go way beyond Willy Wonka. They're customized to meet your skin's needs with professional-use-only ingredients, and targeted treatment. They start with a professional SkinReading to evaluate what your skin needs right now.. Then they infuse serious "Stuff" into surface layers like plant extracts, exfoliants and essential oils (to name a few). This facial may include an acupressure massage, custom blended mask, surface peel, and comedone removal treatment, a machine or two and other professional Stuff designed to deliver serious results – targeting your specific skin care concerns. Very un-Fluffy.
Now don't get us wrong – Fluff treatments can be great when you want a nice, relaxing body treatment. (If you want to be slathered in chocolate, we say do it from the neck down.)
