We tried and tested the Skin Specific Facial by Elemis in Dubai.
We all have different skin types and often times our own skin texture changes according to the weather. So, although in the summers we tend to have more oily skin once the winter comes the skin becomes dry and flakey. Of course in order to keep the face looking fresh and youthful, facials are a must. We were recently invited to try out the Skin Specific Facial by Elemis. A custom treatment where the therapist uses products according to the skin and what it needs.
We arrived at CARACALLA Spa at the Royal Meridian Dubai first had a brief discussion with the therapist about our skin over a glass of juice and dates. The treatment began with a foot ritual where the feet were soaked in water and after gently massaged with a cream.
We then lay down on the heated bed for the facial. A gentle cleansing was following by a face and shoulder oil massage. We definitely dozed off a couple of times during it as it was extremely relaxing. This was followed by an exfoliating scrub that was applied and the steamer was also switched on and placed close to our face. This was possibly the first time we didn’t mind having the steamer on as the therapist continued to gently scrub the face.
Next, came the part we most dread-extraction of blackheads. But again, the therapist was quite gentle and we didn’t flinch or moan at all and before we knew it was time for the final step, the face mask. Once the mask was applied we were treated to a head oil massage that was definitely an added bonus.
The treatment ended in exactly an hour and fifteen minutes as promised and the therapist sent us home with plenty of samples of the products that were used on us.
This custom facial in Dubai is fairly expensive (580 AED) but it focuses on relaxing the skin and mind and we will definitely be back for it again.
