BEST FACIAL

BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE BOOSTER VIP 02 FACIAL AT THE SPA AND HEALTH CLUB AT THE MERRION

Fluffy facials have had their day. Clients are now more interested in results-driven treatments and cutting-edge techniques, and Biologique Recherche Booster VIP 02 Facial at the Spa and Health Club at The Merrion certainly fits that bill. Beginning under bright lights so that the skin can be properly analysed, the steps that follow include a massage focused on lymphatic drainage, exfoliation for brightening, a mask to oxygenate and hydrate the skin, as well as a cocktail of serums and the final addition of a ‘Face Remodeling Machine’ to increase the lasting effects of the treatment. Known as the ‘Red Carpet facial’ for good reason, it leaves the skin perfectly plump and clear, with lines lessened and dark circles diminished. merrionhotel.com
