Top UK skincare brand’s signature organic facial treatments are now available exclusively at Sisters Beauty Lounge’s flagship branch at The Dubai Mall. Awakenings mag reviewed this facial in November 2013.
Before I headed to the Sisters Beauty Lounge in Dubai Mall to try this facial, I’d never heard of this particular salon chain. Well I have now! This is a pampering sanctuary for women needing some self-nurturing, a little stress relief, a special pampering treat, or, of course, expert luxury skin care. One detail I love about Sisters is the in-house café where you can relax with a cuppa and magazine. However, it’s the treatments that are the speciality and I was there to try out one of the four new Organic Pharmacy signature facials (available exclusively at Sisters flagship branch at The Dubai Mall), namely the Rose Crystal Lymphatic Facial. It’s an hour and 30 minutes or so of total bliss with the bonus of knowing you’re supporting an ethical brand.
The Organic Pharmacy is a leading British brand dedicated to organic health and beauty. Founded by husband and wife team Margo and Francesco Marrone, it offers sustainable and ecologically-sound premium products and treatments free of the toxic ingredients found in mainstream cosmetics and health products. So far so eco-good but how was the facial? Absolutely wonderful. First, Carrot Butter Cleanser is applied to soften and decongest the skin, followed by a complexion brightening flower petal exfoliation. Three separate masks of seaweed, honey and jasmine were applied before my therapist used rose crystals to decongest my lymphatic system. I was deeply cleansed, steamed, scrubbed, massaged and rubbed. I had my skin analysed, advice given and my blackheads extracted. Finally, I had an acupressure massage to firm my facial muscles because, aside from using pure and potent organic products, the treatments also incorporate massage techniques, lymphatic drainage and acupressure massage to support the skin’s ability to heal itself. It all felt amazing and my skin looked fantastic by the end of it all. Fine lines had vanished or decreased, my skin looked more youthful and smoother. I felt refreshed and looked younger, which is, ultimately, the whole point of having facials.
