Are all spa facials are created equal, right? Not so much. The quality of a facial depends on the caliber of products used and the expertise of the aesthetician. I’ve had facials that were pleasant skin-cleansing experiences but barely showed any results days after. And then there are the game-changing treatments that do the work. So when I was given the opportunity to experience The Expert Method by world-renowned skincare brand BABOR, my curiosity was piqued.
So much more than a facial, The Expert Method is an elevated treatment experience that supports and enhances the natural physiology of the skin. The five unique elements of the protocol enhance circulation and metabolic activity in the skin, stimulating natural detoxification and renewal functions. The deeply relaxing interplay of warm and cool compresses during the cleansing ritual is followed by two unique, results-driven massages, all tailored to each guest’s individual skin needs. A combination of proven science, German precision, and the ultimate ‘me time,’ guests can expect a glowing, vitalized complexion with a firmer, more youthful look

So clearly I had high hopes. Everything was set up beautifully at âme Spa & Wellness Collective at the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort. When I was brought into the room where my treatment was being done, I was welcomed with a warm, snuggly therapy bed, that was pristine clean, the room beautifully decorated and dimmed so my treatment could begin. And then the facial started….do not take what I say next lightly. I’ve had a lot of facials in my lifetime. BEST FACIAL EVER. The treatment was 90 minutes of pure and utter bliss. The amount of facial massage that was incorporated into the treatment blew my mind and I have never felt so calm, relaxed and comfortable ever. The reason it was so good was not only because of the amount of facial massage, it was also because I could feel the products working on my skin but weren’t irritating it. The masks were amazing, the massage amazing, there was literally everything you could have wanted and more from this facial. It made me want to book in for one every month it was that incredible.
The best part? Without sounding geeky, the brilliance of the products and the fact you can carry on the regime at home. If you do stay awake throughout the treatment, your therapist will explain the importance of the ingredients and formulas and you can keep seeing results by using them yourself. The Hydra Plus ampules and the Moisture Glow Cream are especially brilliant, especially for dry or sensitive skin types.
The next morning, I got up and my skin was *noticeably* clearer, I felt the best about my skin in a long time and was totally sold on buying one of everything from their line. Who knew?! The best facial of my life and an exciting new brand that works on my skin which also performs. A match made in heaven if you ask me.
