We took a trip on a rainy Friday afternoon to experience one of spa’s signature bespoke facials; the Biologique Recherche Sapphire 3 Oxylight Ultimate Facial with Rachel Bryant. We absolutely loved this facial – the bespoke facial is customised to each client’s needs and really takes your skincare concerns into account. The facial uses six state-of-the-art skincare technologies in one session: gentle diamond microdermabrasion, lymphatic cleansing, cryo-therapy facial massage with the PIGM 400 Sheet Masque, therapeutic oxygen spray, ultrasound with Biosonix LED light therapy, and lifting and sculpting microcurrent.
Rachel is so knowledgeable about skin health and skincare – I love chatting to her throughout the facial and getting so many great tips for looking after my skin in the harsh winter months and whilst travelling a lot. The results of the facial really speak for themselves; my face looked noticeably tighter, brighter and more defined after the 60-minute facial, with no redness or downtime needed. The products used felt so hydrating, effective, yet gentle on the skin – Biologique Recherche’s range of skincare products are highly concentrated in botanical, marine and biological active ingredients that are formulated with no artificial fragrance in its own laboratory in France. The products are super indulgent and I loved the results!
This facial is simply unmissable. The results are amazing and you’ll love the experience of meeting Rachel and having your own personalised experience at Paul Labrecque. We can’t recommend it enough!
