As a 20-year-old who doesn’t spend huge amounts of time thinking about skin damage and has grown into the habit of covering up my skin with too much makeup, a facial was something that had never really crossed my mind.
However, the new Aveda Tulasara facial wasn’t just any facial. Because I had never had a facial before I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but what I experienced was definitely not what I had imagined – in the best possible way.
The session began with my therapists, Hannah and Leah, performing a full body consultation to address any concerns with e.g. skin redness or dryness, sore eyes or even muscle aches. This was certainly something I had not been expecting as it was far above what I thought a regular facial would be. From this, they determined that my eyes were sore and dehydrated and that the skin on my face was sensitive and prone to dryness with blemishes when stressed.
My therapists tailored the remedies they would use to my skin’s specific needs and chose the ‘Bright’ Tulasara Concentrate in order to lift and hydrate my skin and make it more radiant. Throughout the whole facial I felt more relaxed than I had done in a long time. The unique and exciting ritual of dry brushing that is specially used in the Tulasara facials was particularly refreshing, with two varying rhythms; one designed for effective exfoliation and one for to calm the skin down again through relaxation.
In all honesty before this facial I was slightly wary of how effective a facial could actually be, but I can also honestly say I have been completely converted! I truly felt as though I hadn’t taken my makeup off properly in forever, as I had always used makeup to cover up my skin as much as possible due to lack of confidence in the way my skin looked. After my Tulasara facial, my skin was glowing and soft to the touch for over a week and has given me the confidence to cut back on my makeup considerably.
My first facial experience with the Tulasara products didn’t just leave me feeling relaxed and refreshed, it completely changed the way I felt towards my skin from negative to positive.
I would recommend it to anyone and everyone!
