Sebaceous Filaments Vs. Blackheads – What’s the Difference? by: Jen Okhiria February 5, 2019 Updated on February 7, 2019 If you’ve ever suffered a smattering of blackheads that just don’t clear away, take a closer look. You might not be dealing with blackheads at all, but sebaceous filaments instead. While similar to blackheads, sebaceous filaments are a different animal altogether. What Are Sebaceous Filaments?

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
