I don’t go for facials often, in fact I can count on my one hand how many times I have been. I have sensitive skin and have reactions to new products so I tend to avoid actually using too many new things on my skin. Perfect 10 recently invited me to experience one of their facials and I jumped at the opportunity because I really needed some down time and I am so glad I went.
I was booked at the Perfect 10 in the Mall of Africa, which is actually such a pretty mall. It is a small salon but I love the way they have set it up, the pedi chairs are at the back so you can actually properly relax and don’t have to look at all the people walking past (which I know can be nice but sometimes you just want to get away from people.).
The treatment room where I had the facial was a decent sized room, both the beauty therapist and I could fit in, I HATE those rooms that are so tiny you have to hold your breathe as you walk in. I hadn’t realised until that moment how much the lighting of the room impacted me. This room had dimmed lights which really was amazing, especially for a facial. The rooms where I have my waxing done are always so harshly lit, its fine when you are in and out but when you are staring up at the light it does need to be dimmed a bit.
The actual facial was AMAZING!!! It was gentle and relaxing and my skin felt so incredible afterwards. While the mask was drying she massaged my feet and hands. I nearly wept with joy, it was so unexpected but SO needed after the week I had had that week.
You can get pretty much anything done at Perfect 10 – nails, pedis, waxing, facials, massages and even tanning – it is your one stop beauty shop and their prices are actually cheaper than the two salons I use regularly (by quite a bit).
They are nationwide in most large malls – you can use their easy store locator to find the one near you.
Honestly this was such a relaxing experience, maybe I was just so exhausting but I think it was also largely Neo who was incredible!!! They have a Skinderm eye cream that I am keen to try out, apparently I have wrinkles by my eyes and this will help!
Have you been to a Perfect 10 before? What is your favourite treatment if you were to go to a salon?
