Facial at The Aveda Institute


My "momma" is in town all this weekend!!!! She is a low maintenance type of gal when it comes to beauty products. The only thing she needs is a moisturizing cream, cleanser, and a little foundation on days when she feels she needs it. So ....I wanted us to have a mother-daughter beauty night. WIth me being on a budget, I decided to schedule an appointment at The Aveda Institute in DC, because of the reduced rates (the services are performed by qualified students). It was the best experience I have ever had!! She started by gently cleansing my skin, then an assessment to see which service would benefit me most. My area was the whiteheads around my nose. Next, she exfoliated my skin with a little rotating brush (wonderful). Placed a hot towel to open my pores to make the extraction easier and to cleanse. After the cleansing she placed a hydrating gel mask all over....It was lovely!!! In addition to the wonderful facial, Sheila also incorporated massage. She left no pore unclogged and no muscle untouched!!! She was sooo gentle and her voice was sooo comforting. For the entire hour, I was in paradise. When my mother and I were reunited at the end of the experience, her skin looked equally amazing!! I asked her aesthetician what my mother's skin type was and she said, "normal....she has really beautiful, smooth skin (which I already knew)." I smiled and said, "thanks momma....I guess I get it from you." This was confirmed by Lakeisha's nod (my mom's aeshetician). I quickly booked another appointment with Sheila for next month !!! My skin was glowing and I felt relaxed. This experience was priceless!!!

Well, I'm off to another shopping field trip with mom in Philly. We have lots of ground to cover. She is leaving tomorrow afternoon.

Book an appointment there!! They now offer the skincare services at night now!! What are you waiting for??

I wandered into that Aveda one day and was amazed by the prices (I think they employee Aveda students) and the great customer service! I plan on getting all my waxing done there.

I think the process they are following is great and should make a difference to the face.
