Last Friday I had the opportunity to visit a local beauty spot everyone has been talking about, Facialworks luxury oxygen facial bar in Newport Beach, for one of their specialty 40 minute oxygen facials.
Facialworks is also treating one lucky winner this Mother’s Day with a giveaway for two oxygen facials in honor of Mother’s Day. Make sure to enter below!
What is Facialworks all about?
Facialworks had me at the concept alone.
Their facials are done at a fun bar with the goal to get you cleansed, hydrated and radiant in just 40 minutes. In and out.
That’s right mamas. No big time commitment, no downtime, and no stretching the truth to your hubby about the cost because their 40 minute facials start at only $35.
Yes, $35, which includes a cleanse, exfoliation, masque, oxygen infusion, hydration and finishing touches.
If you are so inclined, you can add on some extras like the NuFace Microcurrent Facial Lift treatment (+$20), Double Oxygen infusion (+$10) and Glo Minerals Airbrush Make-up (+$20).
What to Expect at Facialworks
When I walked in, I was immediately taken with the decor. Their modern color palette of soft grays and turquoise is right up my alley, and the cool loungey music added to the ambiance.
I was given a menu of services to select my choice of different things like type of cleanser preferred (gentle or exfoliating), did I want a Clarisonic cleanse? tinted or non-tinted SPF finish? etc.
Or, you can leave it up to your Facialworks skinSTYLIST.
Facialworks Oxygen Facials
The first thing I wanted to ask was, “what exactly IS an oxygen facial?”
From their website, I learned oxygen facials use the power of hyperbaric oxygen to infuse serum into the skin. The oxygen concentrators create a pressure bubble on the surface of the skin which aids in deep absorption of the custom serum, resulting in glowing, tight skin.
They might have lost me at the word hyperbaric, but the point is, the oxygen makes your skin really pretty. That’s all I need to know!
My skinSTYLIST started with a cleanse, then did a Clarisonic exfoliation and masque.
Facialworks treated me to the upgrades so it was then time for NuFace, in which a little microcurrent stimulates the muscles underneath the skin resulting in toning and firming of surface lines.
Music to almost 40 year old ears.
After that, it was time for the serum spray and oxygen, both of which were very relaxing. The oxygen almost felt like cool water being blown on my face, but there was no moisture coming from the wand. It was wild.
She ended with a moisturizer, and my face felt like silk. The treatment was extremely gentle and I had little redness. I have to say my skin felt amazing.
Walk Out Radiant
One of my not so favorite things about facials is how I can sometimes look red afterwards, with all my blemishes exposed for the world to see.
With the airbrushed make-up application, I was able to walk out looking ready to hit the town (or more realistically, ready to run into moms at preschool pick up).
Then all I needed then was some eyes and lips and I was ready for Friday date night.
Many times facials are cut from the budget and considered a luxury for many, including myself.
However, at a $35 price point, it makes it more affordable to take care of your skin on a more regular basis.
Mother’s Day Promotion & Giveaway
Book a facial for you and your mom this Saturday and Sunday (May 10th and 11th) and you will receive a free NuFace Microcurrent upgrade. You will love it. I really could see the difference when she showed me the one side of my face she worked on versus the other.
Facialworks also offers gift certificates if you want to treat a special mom in your life to an oxygen facial.
Hooray! It’s a Giveaway!
In honor of Mother’s Day, Facialworks is giving away two 40-minute oxygen facials to one lucky winner to take her mom or a girlfriend ($70 value.) Enter below, good luck!
