My Spa Blog - ESPA Pro Serum Facial

March 13, 2014

Following on from the incredible successful launch of our optimal pro skin serum we have introduced the ESPA optimal pro serum facial as our treatment of the month.

Excited by our new ESPA Optimal Skin Pro-Serum promotion I decided to try out the optimal skin pro serum facial that we are offering in The Spa at Castlemartyr Resort. Following on from the incredible successful launch of optimal skin pro serum we have introduced the ESPA optimal pro serum facial as a promotional treatment for this month. The facial will include the use of optimal skin pro serum and a complimentary gift of this product to take home.

As with all ESPA treatments, it began with a quick sensory test that lets the client's body tell them what they need. I was offered two toner soaked cotton wool pads and I selected the hydrating floral spa fresh meaning I required re-hydration. After a look under the specialist skin vision lamp that is offered in all ESPA facials, it was confirmed that while I did have some oily zones I certainly had some dry and dehydrated patches. I focus some much energy into taking care of the oil parts of my skin to reduce the shine and occasional breakouts that I often don't take as much care of the dry patches. Therefore, the therapist selected hydrating products suitable for oily skin and gave me a wonderful bespoke facial , finishing with a generous helping of pro serum. The facial includes a wonderfl face, neck and shoulder massage with the option of a scalp massage using pink hair and scalp mud while the mask works its magic. Therefore, the therapist never left the room and I was pampered for the full hour of my treatment.

Optimal Skin Pro-Serum combines the exceptional nourishment of a treatment oil with the active benefits of multiple plant extracts to deliver naturally beautiful skin. Enriched with nourishing omega (3, 6 & 9), vitamins (A & E) and proactive natural extracts turmeric, white lupin and sunflower this advanced formulation helps brighten and even skin tone, enhance elasticity, firm and protect against premature ageing. This is a particularly exciting product in the world of skincare because it combines the strength of a serum with the benefits of a facial treatment oil, all in one go, and is suitable for all kinds of skin. I always worry about using an oil on my face as I tend to be more oily than dry but this is light, absorbs quickly into the skin and does not feel like an oil.

ESPA Optimal Skin Pro Serum has a whole list of wonderful ingredients formulated to provide both instantly visible and long term anti-ageing benefits. The benefits of these 99% natural ingredients are as follows:

Turmeric - to enhance skin radiance, brighten and even skin tone

Rose Hip and Echium Oil - to promote healthy beautiful looking skin

White Lupin - to powerfully increase elasticity and skin firmness

Kalpariane Seaweed Extract - to lock in vital moisture

Sunflower Seed - to actively strengthen skin and protect

Viatmin E and Evening Primrose Oil - to protect and regenerate skin cells

Balloon Plant - to lovingly calm and comfort

Rose and Patchouli Essential Oils - to gently soothe and balance

After my facial I was led to the tranquil relaxation room for my healthy but gorgeous treat to help me awaken from my wonderful treatment I had received. I could not wait to take a peep in the mirror to look at my fresh and clear skin as it felt wonderfully soft and supple. I took my complimentary gift home with me and have been using a few drops every evening after I cleanse and tone and before I moisturise in the morning. I must say that this product really impressed me as it is a serum, treatment and primer in one. My dry patches are more evenly moisturised, my oily patches are less oily. My skin feels tighter and brighter and my breakouts have reduced significantly. I use it over my moisturiser in the morning as it acts as a primer and I feel my make-up sits for longer and more evenly on the skin during the day. I can't wait to see my skin in a few months ready for the summer. The ESPA pro serum promotion will run while stocks last so try this must have treatment today.
