Anyone else treat themselves to a birthday gift each year? I sure do! But instead of buying clothes or jewelry this year, I’ve decided to treat myself to a facial. Before this past weekend, I’ve only had two facials, one of which was last year at Green City Beauty (you can check out my review here).
For this facial I was very excited to try Heyday (which is new to Philly and happens to be next door to Paddywax where I spent part of my birthday making candles). I pass Heyday every day on my walk to work and have heard amazing things so I couldn’t wait to book my first appointment.
I arrived a few minutes early since I had to fill out paper work regarding my skin type. Once my facialist Mackenzie was ready, she brought me back to the room were my facial would take place. I purchased their 50 minute facial ($95) and asked Mackenzie to focus on hydration and extractions. Throughout the facial, she asked me questions about the products I use, my skin care routine, and made some helpful suggestions on ways I could revamp my skin care routine.
Overall I was quite relaxed. The only uncomfortable part were the extractions (but that was expected and she did a great job with them). Once the extractions were done, Mackenzie used this electrical High Frequency machine to help reduce redness, shrink pores, and prevent acne from forming. I’ve never seen a machine like this before, but it was painless.
After my final face mask, Mackenzie loaded my skin up with moisturizer. Even hours after my facial my face still felt incredibly hydrated! Shortly after I left my appointment I received an email from Mackenzie with a recap of the information we talked about and products she recommended.
One really awesome thing Heyday offers are monthly packages. With these packages you get 10% off products, $5 off enhancements, 10% off additional facials, and event access & occasional surprises.
The Alternating 30/50: $76/MO is a comprehensive 50 Minute Facial facial one month and a 30 Minute Facial the next.
The Monthly 50 (the most popular package): $89/MO is a 50 Minute Facial every month to reset and refresh your skin.
The Monthly 75: $130/MO is a 75 Minute Facial every month to reset and refresh your skin.
Now who’s dying to get a facial?
