Djaouida Skincare Review [Seattle]

Friday, February 22, 2013

Happy Friday!!

Since I have been on the subject of skincare this week, I wanted to talk more about investing in maintaining your near-perfect skin. I've never thought to be the one to do facials or even go to a professional for the help of my skin. I thought just putting on daily serums and night creams would help do the trick but like I had said in my prior post here, I need to continue to take better care as I get older.

Ironically I was recently contacted by Djaouida of Djaouida Skincare with an offer for a luxurious facial. I was thrilled and agreed to setup an appointment with her. I was told to go to her website and pick from the different kinds of facials she had to offer. After looking through, I chose the European facial since it seemed to suit for my sensitive/oily skin the best. Her business is located in West Seattle which isn't far to where I live right now. So getting there was no problem at all. :)

 On my way to my facial appointment.. ^__^

Upon arriving, I was greeted right away by Djaouida who then showed me to her room on where I'll be getting the facial. She was really sweet to let the Hubs take photos of her room before she got started. After he was done, he left me for my 1 hour and 15 mins appointment (he took Kobi on a nice long walk). And during the time, she explained what she will be doing and stepped out so I can quickly slip into my robe and suited myself into the nicely heated bed she had ready for me. It was instant comfort I must say. haha..

Me sans makeup and ready for my first facial!

 The nicely heated bed with added comfort of pillows and soft blankets. 
Djaouida makes sure each of her client is always 100% comfortable.

Her station of products that she had ready from the start of the appointment.
All was used on my face minus the Red Velvet Yankee Candle.. which smelled amazing btw! haha..

The facial felt so good and relaxing! And chatting with Djaouida was so much fun by getting to know her and her passion for skincare. She is filled with great tips on what to do for your skin and she even started her own beauty blog to talk in depth of the benefits of certain items you can easily get or have at home already!

 During the time, she told me my skin actually had some dry patches on the forehead which surprised me because I always had somewhat oily skin. But she told me by the change of cold weather and turning up the heat in my car and home, it does affect my skin greatly and my skin needs to stay hydrated. I always thought otherwise but I finally had a professional tell me what's really going on. So thankful! And one thing that I loved about her facial was the fact that all of the products she used are all natural which means no harsh chemicals to the face. I enjoyed the sea kelp and green tea face mask and pomegranate polishing cream! One of the few products I actually remember her telling me because I was in deep relaxation from the hand/arm/shoulder massages while my mask was setting. ;)

 Prices: $75 for facials and she also offers sugaring services which varies in prices (here).

After an 1 hour and 15 mins flying by... my face was totally hydrated and glowing!!

Right after my appointment... I was so dazed! My boys were waiting for me. :)

So if you're living in or visiting the Seattle area and in need of an amazing facial (or any sugaring services!). Go make an appointment with Djaouida (contact info here)! You will enjoy every bit of it like I did! I was so pleased with the results that I plan on setting up another appointment in the near future to keep my skin nice and even-toned! 

Are you a Yelper like me?? Go check out my Yelp review too!
 I only Yelp on businesses I want.. not just because.

Have you ever tried a facial? How was your experience? I would love to know!
Also, today is the last day to enter my giveaway by Charleston Naturally! Don't miss out!

Disclaimer: Djaouida Skincare did offer me the complimentary European facial so I can review. 
But all honest opinions and thoughts expressed were my own.

  6. you look pretty with or without makeup, very nice! -Del

  7. I am not a fan of facials, mostly because I don't like my face being touched, haha. One time I tried it (a long time ago) and my face was all red and blotchy after. But then after a day or two, my face felt amazing. I think I just need to find the right place to get one done!

  14. I love getting a facial but I am the type who always falls asleep during it haha. It's quite embarrassing actually because sometimes my facial girl would be talking to me and I am sure all the response she'd get was "zzzzz.." from me lol!
    You don't seem to need alot of make-up since you have really great clear skin! I'd say splurge on facial and care products and skip the colour make up ;)

  15. hello gorgeous!!
    great photos:)

  36. Last summer I had my first facial at a spa and salon ever and it was so wonderful. My best friend was getting married so I and the other ladies in the wedding took the bride out for a weekend of shopping and relaxing. The facial was so amazing.
