Today I am sharing my experience when I met Ellis and Daniel Pillai at Hotel Templar in Toronto. It was a 1 hour drive from my home and was really looking forward to meeting them and having the facial treatment.
The appointment was fixed a month ago. Glad it finally happened and I had such relaxing experience that I want to go there again. When I arrived and met Daniel, it felt like I am meeting an old friend after a long time. Both Daniel and Ellis were very warm hearted and friendly. They offered me a welcome drink too which is so sweet of them. After that, i filled up the patient form which was mainly if i have any allergies or my previous history of sensitivities. I was already following the tips provided to me by Ivana Mariani (Thank you Ivana), the main one’s included not to apply any retinoids, AHA/BHA, no direct sun exposure, laser treatments 7 days before the appointment. Anyways I am sure you’re more interested to know about Facial and Treatment
Before starting my facial, Ellis asked me about any allergies and examined my skin. At the time of appointment, i had no main concerns but scars from my previous congestion/acne. So she chose to do the brightening peel on me. She started with double cleansing my face with the AlumierMD Gel Purifying Cleanser to remove my makeup ( actually i just had my blush and powder on) and then the SensiCalm Cleanser. As per the AlumierMD website, ‘Purifying Gel Cleanser is a pH balanced foaming cleanser that gently and effectively cleans skin by removing impurities and excess oil, leaving it smooth and soft. Coconut and plant-based surfactants gently cleanse. Chamomile, aloe and opuntia ficus-indica soothe and hydrate for skin that feels fresh, supple and comfortable.
The SensiCalm Cleanser is a smooth, hydrating cleanser that delicately removes impurities and excess oil while calming skin. Yucca seed extract is a gentle natural cleanser; niacinamide, ceramides and vitamin e moisturize, leaving skin smooth, soft and intensely hydrated. Aloe soothes skin and calms redness.‘
After cleansing and removing the cleanser with a cloth, She applied the AlumierMD Facial Peel. Facial peels are a great way to exfoliate your skin, helping to reduce pigmentation and leaving you with a younger looking face. This is the stage for which i was following the tips for past seven days. During the treatment, lactic and kojic acids are blended with lightening agents to reduce all forms of pigmentation. Ellis asked me twice about how would i rate the pain or tingling on my skin out of 10, and i said between 3 and 4 which was not much, maybe because i have been using the acids, home use peels on my skin and skin reacts very well to them. You may likely experience some redness and light peeling for a few days after this treatment depending upon your skin type.
After 7-8 minutes, the peel was removed with a cloth and the next step was to apply AlumierMD Refining Clay Mask for 10 minutes along with AlumierMD gel eye pads on my lower eye area which were so refreshing and calming. This mask is ideal for skin that is prone to acne, open pores, congestion and oiliness, this treatment is designed to reﬁne and purify the skin. A unique blend of clay and exfoliating ingredients remove dead skin cells, promote skin renewal and clear away excess oil. You should see a reduction in the appearance of blemishes and oil and your skin will feel clean, hydrated and calm. This product is available to use in spa’s as i do not see it on the AlumierMD website. And after removing this mask, i was give a massage for 1-2 minutes and then applied with the very beautiful products one of which is the cult-favorite AluminEye cream which was applied around the orbital area of eye. She used the Clear lotion and then the intensive recovery cream followed by the Untinted SHEER HYDRATION SPF 40. My skin was all glowing after the treatment. I dressed up, took some pictures and went out of the room. There, i was asked for smoothie, water or any juice, and i opted for water – what is more better than hydration after the facial, right?
I was given a seven day deluxe samples from the brand which included Sensicalm Cleanser, Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF40 and Intensive Recovery cream. I was advised to use these products for the next seven days after the peel and i am on my fourth day, i must say i am using those products religiously and loving the results i got after the peel.
Have you guys ever had a Facial peel or a massage from AlumierMD or any other skincare line, let me know your experience.
