Countless late nights have taken their toll. I am officially a “moonlighter” a relentless workaholic, nothing illegal going on here though, by “moonlighting” I mean those late night hours to catch up on admin that piles up and becomes a bloodbath of an inbox.
Dark circles, lack lustre dry skin, and fine lines, are the consequent byproduct, after months, I decide it’s unbearable, so I head down to a swanky new clinic recently opened in that gorgeous little jewel box of a hideaway called Primrose Hill in London. Destination: The Aesthetics Lab, a sanctuary of white clinical bliss. Oh how I love a white shiny new aesthetics clinic.
“Don’t you worry, my moonlight dust facial will have you looking refreshed and fast” chirps Aesthetic Doctor, Dr Gabriela Mercik. I smile at myself, the treatment name is fitting.
MoonlightDust™ explains Dr. Gabriela, “is a new 7-step facial that delivers an immediate and progressive reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores without the downtime associated with laser treatments, chemical peels and microdermabrasion.” I am sold at the words “progressive reduction”, and “no down time” I urge Dr. Mercik to get started, fast!
“It is the first and only facial to harness the power of molecular water” – a ground-breaking ingredient in the treatment of ageing skin, explains Dr. Gabriela.
It’s not the first time I have been enamoured of simple water in the quest for skin renewal, I have experienced countless Hydrafacial treatments which are based on water, and I love them with a passion, could this be an equal game changer?
Step 1 MoonlightDust™ Cleanser – removes makeup and oils to gently and effectively cleanse the skin.
Step 3 MoonlightDust™ Toner – molecular water toner is applied to start the rehydration process and balance pH levels.
Step 4 MoonlightDust™ Magic Rain – a refreshing spritz is applied, this is designed to promote the maximum efficacy of the active ingredients used says Dr. Gabriela.
Lots of kneading then ensues, my face feels like a ball of putty in Dr. Gabriela’s hands “nothing wrong with a bit of facial yoga” she chirps away, I smile, wincing with jaw ache. Funnily enough it feels nice though, a bit like a good old workout, kills you in the process, but energises you after.
Step 5 MoonlightDust™ Face & Décolleté Cream is applied– again this contains molecular water, olive oil, green tea extracts and coconut oil said to deliver superior antioxidant protection and deep hydration.
Treatment time is over.
I stare back at my face in the hand held mirror, my skin instantly looks fresher, the yellow sallow tiredness is replaced with a glow that is at least a shade lighter. I like it, infact I like it a lot.
