Eminence Customized Facial – Before and After

Eminence Customized Facial – Before and After Robin came in for an Eminence Customized Facial and we asked her to partake in Before and After Photos. Robin is a regular enthusiast of Eminence. She has facials with the change of the seasons. This time she was concerned about the “puffiness” under her eyes. She was excited to use her 18th wedding anniversary gift certificate from her husband Johnny. The Facial Geraldine chose was to target dark spots and tone her beautiful freckles as well as address her puffy eyes. After the consultation Geraldine chose to use the Red Currant and Monoi Age Corrective Cleansers.

Parabens and Laurel Sulfates

Parabens and Laurel Sulfates Are parabens and phthalates harmful in makeup and lotions? By Jill U.

Holiday Plan

HOLIDAY PLAN ~ Geraldine Barrett As summer quickly passes I reflect on my holiday and how I altered my plans. I had planned to travel southern Saskatchewan, visit family and celebrate my mom’s 95th birthday for my holiday.  In between I would visit some new towns to take in their museums and restaurants. Tourism Saskatchewan has a great Discovery Guide; “See Sask First”. There are many hidden treasures in our beautiful province. However; my plan changed quickly.  My oldest sister was moving into a condo and needed to be out of her house.  She had a lifetime of treasures to go through and was exasperated as how to get started.  I made the decision to “shift gears” and help her.

My Facial

August 4, 2016 I was apprehensive before my first facial as I thought it would make my face very red. Geraldine explained what every cream and masque contained – and about all the natural ingredients eg. citrus, kale, apricot…. All this was done on a warm bed while I was lying down comfortably. There were cool and hot sensations. The chamomile lotion was calming. My skin now looks smooth and is not red! I have booked another facial for September! Sharon Fluney
