Dr Sebagh Signature Facial with Super Facialist Tine Hagelquist at Liberty London

The title is a bit of a mouthful but had to get it all in! Not only did I experience a “red carpet skin ready” facial I was lucky to have their top facialist Tine Hagelquist in a private room at the iconic Liberty store…what more can a girl want!IMG_0066

I was out shopping in town when I unexpectedly bumped into Vivian and Tine from Dr Sebagh at Liberty. They mentioned that they have a facial event in store and had just had a last minute cancellation I could fill. Of course I take it, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect, I had a few hours to kill prior to an evening hair event and what could be better than to show up with beautiful radiant skin…winning!

The Facial of all facials: Tine met me in the beauty hall and walked me to a private room, it’s located on the first floor with a window looking out over Carnaby Street (of course there’s a window blind) The room is fresh, clean and bright with the delicate aroma of ylang ylang, there’s no noise – it’s magical. Tine dim’s the light’s a little, ask’s me to remove my top and bra straps and lay on the bed under the silky sheet and soft red blanket, it’s so cosy I’m totally relaxed. I have had the pleasure of working with Tine before however that said she is so friendly and kind she immediately puts you at ease, she’s extremely knowledgeable with 3 decades of experience! (I know she doesn’t look old enough) she is so passionate about her work which shine’s out of her face like little sunbeams. She has good energy.

Tine start’s with a consultation asking me key questions about my skin routine and diet then get’s to work on my face. She gently removes my make-up and cleansed my skin using the Foaming Cleanser and a soft warm towel. Then applied the Deep Exfoliating Mask for 5 mins, this really gets to work on your skin it does feel very tingly and is almost like a facial peel. Next for the masks, for treating my skin type she applied the Skin Perfecting Mask on my t-zone area and Rose de Vie Hydration Mask on my cheeks for 20 mins.

While the masks do their thing on my face Tine offers a neck, shoulders, arms and hand massage using the Supreme Maintenance Body Cream. It is absolute bliss all my stress and worries are floating away as her magic hands massage me and I forget I’m in the middle of busy London.

It’s time to remove the masks with warm soft flannels then Tine performs Lymphatic Drainage using Rose de Vie Serum on my face, neck and decollete. Lymphatic Drainage is about removing waste through your lymph nodes and eyes look less puffy too.

Next is a “Facial Workout” using the Supreme Maintenance Serum, Tine’s technique is the best I’ve had, she’s brilliant! Now for my eye area Tine works on my pressure points and performs lymphatic drainage in this area using Supreme Eye Serum, the product has a ball on the end where it dispenses onto your skin and feels so cooling and refreshing.

To tighten and brighten my complexion Tine applies Serum Repair mixed with Pure Vitamin C Powder Cream, then gently applies High Maintenance Cream and Sun-City SPF 30 Protection (very important) and finishes with Supreme Neck Lift on my neck and decollete.

And the results? Oh wow my skin is radiant, healthy looking and plumped up taking a few years off me…I’m all set now to get dressed and do my hair and make-up for the hair event. By the way my make-up went on like a dream.

During the treatment Tine gently talks through each step and gives you lots of beauty tips and advice and also talks about nutrition and how  to look after the gut and eat food from the “Rainbow Diet” sharing a few quick, simple delicious recipes. She also talks about being positive and happy.

Tine has travelled the world teaching her techniques for Dr Perricone, Nubo and Ole Henriksen to name a few and has worked in the most luxurious locations and has a few celebrity client’s too (she never reveals their names) she will kill me for mentioning!!! lol

I highly recommend the Dr Sebagh Signature Facial, if you are a regular reader you will already know I’m a big fan and use Dr Sebagh products in my daily routine. You can book at Liberty London here event days are £50 redeemable against two products. Here’s a quick look at the effective products that were used in my facial:

Dr Sebagh Magic Soothing Rose de Vie Serum Délicat 30ml

IMG_9328.PNG

IMG_9327.PNG

IMG_9329.PNGThe Promise:
A silky serum which leaves a protective film to restore the skins suppleness, contains organic rose hip oil, anti ageing and anti oxident ingredients to reduce redness, protect and smooth the skin.

My Verdict:
Ok I get it that’s it’s a very luxurious product which comes in a glass bottle with a pipette applicator which I really love and looks great on my dressing table but what’s with all the packaging? It’s comes in a pretty soft pink cardboard sleeve over the top of a two part sturdy glossy white box. It all looks beautiful but so unnecessary as it’s going straight in my recycle box.

On to the product, this light non-greasy serum is truly magical it’s no wonder it has gained a few celebrity fans and is a hit amongst the beauty journalists. It’s really really good at calming and moisturising irritable skin. I often have little flare ups of red itchy skin, when I massage in a few drops of this amazing potion my skin is immediately calm and hydrated like magic!

It can be applied morning and night however I tend to use it for emergency skin flare up’s due to the fact it’s quite pricey, although you do get what you pay for and in this case it delivers on all expectations.

It’s so light it can be applied under your moisturiser and make-up without any oily residue, actually it helps your make-up look fresher and stay put for longer. The smell….oh my it’s sooooo lovely, soft and pretty it reminds me of real traditional rose Turkish delight, it’s very delicate and calming. Those who aren’t fans of “rose” smelling products I’m pretty sure your’ll fall in love with this one. My skin is calm with no inflammations or itchy patches and very supple. It also works well when you add a few drops to your moisturiser.

It is a splurge at £129 here but I will say it’s worth every penny! Mine will last a year as I only use when I feel my skin needs it, I simply love it!

Have you tried any of Dr Sebagh’s award winning products? Would love to hear about them.

IMG_9064-0.PNG

IMG_9066-0.PNGThe Promise:
Advanced anti-Ageing Care. A quickly absorbed non greasy intensively moisturising hand cream. Provides an invisible silken glove of protection and long term hydration. Expect immediate beauty to the appearance of your hands and be confident of long lasting results.

The Science Bit:
An exciting breakthrough in anti-ageing hand care. This Hand Made Crème prevents the 1st signs of ageing.

My Verdict:
Wow! this has just pushed my all time favourite hand cream off of the top spot! This hand cream delivers on ALL of it’s promises. It’s so highly moisturising my hands feel hydrated for hours on end. It is non-greasy but leaves a satisfying film like glove all over without feeling greasy or sticky. The texture is thick and creamy, the smell is gorgeous – reminds me of really nice smelling soap, a clean feminine kinda scent. The packaging is really cool, it’s like a giant toothpaste tube with it’s metallic silver and white/red branding and flip top lid. There isn’t anything not to love about this amazing hand cream!

Summary:
The results speak for themselves, this cream leaves my hands with a nice matte finish yet look and feel soft and silky as if I am wearing a glove. My skin looks healthier, much smoother and a few years younger! I keep this one on my dressing table to apply in the morning before I leave home and last thing at night. It’s a little pricey at £35 but matches it’s performance and high tech ingredients. I will be buying another tube of this hand magic when this one finishes.

Dr Sebagh Eye Primer Lift 15ml

IMG_8578.JPG The Promise:
To instantly lift, tighten and firm the delicate eye area giving a revitalised and noticeably youthful look.

The science bit:
It contains really advanced ingredients too complicated for me to understand (Dr Sebagh is indeed a clever man) however, I will mention it contains hyaluronic acid which will bind water to the skin and fill lines.

My Verdict:
I’ve been using this little bottle of eye contour gel for 2 weeks now. I do find it to be instantly revitalising, it wakes up my eyes prepping them for my make up in the morning. (Which goes over the top nicely without sliding off)

The consistency is gorgeous the gel is easily obsorbed and sinks into my skin after a few moments. A little amount of product seems to go a long way. It keeps my whole eye area moisturised all day and helps smooth out a few fine lines I have *cough cough!! I haven’t noticed any tightening yet but the appearance overall is that of youth! *hallelujah!!!

Summary:
This luxury eye gel is of the higher price point at £52 a pop but I think it’s worth it for it’s fine line filling abilities alone!

Dr Sebagh Serum Repair, could it be magic?

Serum Repair is one of Dr. Sebagh’s award winning products. It is an intensive collagen and hyaluronic serum promising radiant skin, tightening, brightening and plumping. Which means it also promises to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Also adds vitality to dull skin and is great to use around the eyes for an instant lifting effect.

20130623-095734.jpg It can be applied to the whole face under your regular moisturiser. I prefer to use for my eye area and laughter line area because once applied you can really feel the tightening of the skin, and I don’t like that feeling all over, although it wears off after a while.

20130623-100228.jpg It’s a clear odorless serum that feels light like slippery water. The pipette makes application easy ensuring you don’t apply too much, it feels luxurious and as it dries you really feel your skin tightening and can really see a difference in the appearance. I did I the husband test with my eye area, he said “wow” so there you go, a noticeable difference.

20130623-100555.jpg I’m not sure if I’ve noticed my skin looking more radiant when I have applied to my full face, but it certainly does plump and tighten the skin making it smooth and appear younger! Being in my late thirties fine lines, crows feet and laughter lines is something that I am starting to think about in my skin care routine.

20130623-195911.jpg My overall summary is that this is an amazing product that really shows instant results, very pricey at £69 a pop, but you will see results. I think I will use mine sparingly on special occasions, that way it will go the distance.
