Guinot Hydra Peeling Facial

Guinot Hydra Peeling Facial

I recently had the Guinot Hydra Peeling Facial at Exclusive Beauty in Broughshane and wanted to share my review.

2018 became the year I decided to look after my skin. I am not ashamed to admit that this time last year I was using Aveeno body lotion on my face along with facial wipes. In 2017, I had visited my local Debenhams store and purchased some skincare but I it didn’t have the WOW factor for me and as I have mentioned before, I am lazy! To be honest I don’t want to have hundreds of products to remember about EVERY day!

But I am 37 and if I want my skin to look good into my forties then I have to put some effort into it. So I have been searching for my WOW product. Then I met Gillian. I honestly cannot recommend her high enough. She is a highly skilled Beauty Therapist and really knows her shizz.

She had removed my milia and the confidence that I felt after this was amazing! So I contacted her and asked her to give me a facial to perk my skin up after the festive season. She had also given me a sample of Guinot Hydra Beaute to use and I loved it so much I had cut the end off it to scrape all the product out!

Guinot Products

I absolutely loved the Hydra Beaute cream and was ready to purchase a full size as I loved the way my skin drank it up. It was non greasy and smelt divine!

Gillian’s salon is based in Broughshane which is a few miles outside Ballymena. Its an hour drive from my home so I can confirm that the expertise Gillian provides alongside the treatments is definitely worth travelling for!


Guinot Facials

There is a wide range of facials available from Guinot and after examining my skin Gillian suggested the Guinot Hydra Peeling skin treatment. The Guinot treatments are targeted for specific skin issues and this Hydra Peeling facial targeted my key concerns of recovering a radiant complexion, anti ageing and brightening skin tone.

I take a lot of medication and over the Christmas period I have been quite run down and unwell. This has led to my skin being dull and in desperate need of a boost. I have also started to notice that I have quite a pronounced line starting across my forehead which will in time deepen and develop.

The Process

Gillian started by thoroughly cleansing and toning my face. She then exfoliated my skin and applied the peel. This tingled slightly on the skin but no more than say using a glycolic acid. She massaged the product into my face which felt amazing! The tingle increased slightly as she worked the product on my face. She then removed the peel and applies a freshly mixed mask which cooled and soothed my skin. I felt wonderful! My face felt amazing and I loved every second of it. I had wanted to treat myself to something that both relaxed me and gave me brighter, more radiant skin and this was it!




As you can see, my skin is not in terrible condition but it did need a boost. I love how dewy and glowy my face looks in the second photo. I also noticed that the lines on my forehead are vastly reduced! You can see this in the pictures above.

There was no pain involved with this treatment and I honestly cannot wait until my next one!
