Decleor Aroma Expert Hydraforce Facial at Nu Essence

By Aisling | March 22 2007 | 10 Comments

Aromessence_decleor2.jpgAdorable. That’s the best word to describe my therapist, Caroline, at Nu Essence. The Decleor facial she prescribed for me was exactly what I needed, managing the seemingly impossible task of being both refreshing and soothing at the same time. Casting her expert eye over my face, she made her pronouncement: my skin is STILL dehydrated. I can’t believe it! Ungrateful skin. The water that’s been drunk, the creams that have been purchased, the hydrating face masks it has been lavished with. And it’s still feckin parched.

Every Decleor facial begins with a back massage I was delighted to hear. Thus, the scene was set for some serious pampering.

A Hydaforce facial infuses your skin with vitamin C, wild pansy, mint and orange floral waters. My face was cleansed with Reflet de Purete, a product that is only available in salon as it is so powerful. It was then time for the extractions – hurrah! “My favourite part” Caroline confessed giggling. Well, you know how much we hate areas of er, congestion, at Some would say we’re a little obsessed with them. And the purging of them. So it’s bleedin deadly to find a therapist who likes to expertly clear them up.

Then comes the Hydrafloral mask – icy cold, be warned; the hand and arm massage; the neroli oils… Extracts of grapefruit, parsley, mint, orange, hazelnut oil infuse the creams and oils and ungents used in this facial. I’ve always been a big fan of Decleor, now even more so.

This facial is luxurious. It’s indulgent. It’s relaxing. And my skin felt so nourished and hydrated afterwards. It’s fantastic as a pick me up – it plumps up fine lines and if you’re worried that the years might be taking their toll then this is the facial for you. Highly recommended. Ring Nu Essence on 01 6716443 to book one for yourself or one you love very much. And ask for Caroline.

    I’ve had a few Decleor Facials and I love them. I even used the Decleor products for a while (they were just too expensive after a while though) They are so relaxing and lovely and they last for ages. The smells are gorgeous and you feel fabulous afterwards. That’s it I’m booking one now…I need a pampering!

    Had a decleor facial recently and got a sample of the oil and moisturiser, love the smell and skin feels gorgeous after it. And the small sample has lasted a week since I started using it, so good going.

    Another Elemis lover here, but your review is REALLY making me want to try Decleor now! My friend raves about it, I just haven’t got around to trying it yet…

    Any recommendations on a facial?

    I have a voucher for Therapie and don’t know whether to go for an Elemis or the Eve Lom?

    My Elemis delivery arrived on Tuesday. Very impressed with it so far and the pro-collagen eye cream is verrrrry nice.
