Adoré Salon and Clinic Review

October 08, 2015

I first went to Adoré when I was home in Cork to get some last minute waxing. I was really impressed with the salon which was done up recently. It has your hair, nails, facials and waxing treatments all under one roof. It is so convenient instead of running around the city for different appointments.

I was told about their new skincare range Bioline, an italian brand around since the 70's. Its based on AHA's and PHA's. A no down time peel. That exfoliates, hydrates, plumps and rejuvenates your skin. The skin care obsessive that I am, I was sold on this facial. It sounded amazing.

I was invited to try out this facial last Tuesday. Iv lost count of how many people complimented my skin since the moment I left the salon. I have been wearing no makeup the past few days which is a real bonus. My skin has been glowing.

This facial works on the basis of the powerful AHA and PHA's. (ALPHA HYDROXY ACIDS and POLY ALPHA HYDROXY ACIDS) These ingredients break down the dead skin on the surface of your skin and allow further products to work deeper into the skin. The peel is the exfoliation part of the facial and its left on the skin for 5 minutes for first timers and its left on for longer once your skin has build up a tolerance. I felt a slight tingle while the peel was on, but nothing uncomfortable. This meant that the peel was actively working on my skin, doing its job- removing dead skin cells, brightening and tightening the skin. This facial is great for people with dry, ageing skin, pigmentation, oiliness and breakouts. It really kick starts your skin cell cycle which we all need every now and then.

There were 3 massages included in this facial. They were so nice, massage has alot of benefits for for the skin. It improves the circulation in the skin so everything is jump started and woken up, feeling fresher. I definitely felt fresher. The first massage was without any oil on the skin and it was more about lymphatic drainage. Lymphatic drainage is how we remove toxins(nasty stuff) from our body. We have lymph nodes in our body and on our face. The purpose of lymph drainage in both face and body massage is to move fluid out of your tissues into lymph nodes where bacteria and viruses are destroyed.

For the maximum result with any facial it is best done in a series, x1 facial every 3-4 weeks for a number of weeks depending on your skin concern. It is ideal if you have a wedding coming up or you are trying to treat a concern. For me, one was all I needed to just rejuvenate and freshen up the skin, and it did just that.

Kay was the therapist I had for my facial and she was fantastic, so professional and really educated me on the products she was using on my skin throughout the treatment. I would highly recommend Kay. I had never heard of this product but I am glad I know about it now. My skin felt extremely soft after the treatment, I was a little red but that’s 100% normal after having a peel due to the stimulation of circulation in the skin. I felt so relaxed and my skin felt much more alive.
