One of the first things I noticed about the products in Cecelia's room were that they all were Organic.
I like to think of myself as a natural product expert, but I hadn’t heard of any of these exotic items. Some of the products came from a company called Ilike, they are 100 %organic, made from real pulp not extracts. The line uses a lot of fruits plants and herbs. She also used Naturopathica, which is a holistic skin line made from herbs and plants, and Grapeseed Company.
Grapeseed is one of the best antioxidants you can use on your skin. I was so pleased that the products were organic and natural. After giving my skin an analysis, she began a Vitamin C facial, which is great for, dull, blemished skin, unclogging pores and anti-aging.
She began the facial by gently cleansing my face with an Aloe Pomegranate Cleanser.
She then began exfoliation of my skin, using a gentle scrub with rosemary and poppyseeds. This exfoliant was so gentle, and I don’t know what she was doing with her hands, but it felt as if she was massaging my skin as she was applying the scrub. So heavenly! Then the peel process began using a fig and pear enzyme peel. She used this peel to open my pores and bring out the dirt for easy extractions.

If you’re a facial lover like me, you know the worst thing about a facial is an extraction. Depending on your aesthetician, you can come out looking like someone kicked you in the nose, or you can look as if your nose wasn’t even touched. I’m so pleased to say that after she was done with the extraction, my nose was only slightly red, and that’s it. You really couldn’t even tell I had extraction done. This was one of the most gentle and effective extractions I've ever had. And she took her time making sure that there was not one blackhead left.
After that, Cecelia gave me a fantastic Asian pressure point and lympthatic massage all over my face. Cecelia tells me that a facial massage is extremely important for stimulation and circulation. (I give myself a facial and scalp massage every night to make my hair grow, and to stop the aging process.) Then Cecelia applied a Pomegranate and Vitamin C mask. While the mask was on, Cecelia began massaging my shoulders. This massage was so heavenly. I don’t know if Ceceilia is certified in massage, but I’ll tell you one thing, she was hitting all of my stress points, and my stress (and I’ve got a lot of stress) was melting away.

After that she applied a gentle rose serum for extra hydration, and we finished off with a Vitamin C moisturizer.
Right after the facial I looked in the mirror, and was shocked. My skin was glowing. Yes glowing, and my face looked so clean it was remarkable. I just could not believe this facial.
