Fabulous Friday – 15/08/2014

16 August 2014

So last week my husband went away on a business trip. Although I always miss him alot when he is away (which does not happen often though) I think the empty house is the worst feeling. So I have decided that spoiling myself with a facial is just the thing to kill some time.

Like I mentioned in my previous posts I have been using Placecol since I was in high school. I love using their range. They have a salon near my office and I thought it would be the perfect way to kill some time and treat myself by visiting their salon after work.

I booked myself a facial and could not wait. Upon arrival I have changed my mind just about 10 time on what I really wanted to have done. They have a wide variety of treatments they offer. It was decided on an Active Resurfacing Treatment (its a chemical peel). It is a chemical treatment that removes the damaged outer layer part of your skin. This is followed by a very hydrated moisturiser. 

Unfortunately this leaves the skin very vulnerable to sun and pollution as a layer of skin has been removed. And this is what brings us to this weeks favourite.

Because of the peel my skin was so sensitive. And although I sat in the office the whole day I still needed some protection from the extremely strong lightning and obviously the little bit of sun I do see during the day. 

This is a fantastic product as it does not make your skin feel greasy and absorbs quite quickly. It has a very pleasant smell and contains Aloe Vera, vitamin E and panthenol. It it somewhat a bit hydrating for me.

I got my first bottle as a gift when buying other Placecol products and sadly it’s almost finished. I will most definitely repurchase this.

You can get this from the Placecol salons or most of their outlets (Some Edgards and Red Square shops stock the range) @ R180 a bottle.

Please visit their website here for more information on their product range and treatments available.
