Hey hey!
Last week I hopped on over to Brazilian Beauty's Mount Gravatt salon to receive a facial. I was super excited because I knew my skin was in desperate need of some TLC and who doesn't love a facial?! I had never been to a Brazilian Beauty salon before and was keen to see how this experience compared to others I had been to in the past.

I walked in to the salon and was greeted by the friendly Roxy who gave me a form to fill out to determine what my skin concerns were and other health questions. After that, I was introduced to Irene who would be giving me the facial. Before anything, I was taken over to their skin scanner to see what exactly was going on with my face! Irene explained that my main skin problem was that it was dehydrated. Alongside that, I was quite oily in my T-Zone (which is no news to me as I have to blot my skin throughout the day when I wear makeup!). I also had congestion which needed to be cleared up.

I was then taken into a treatment room where I was explained literally EVERTHING about my skin, what was going to be done, I was asked questions and educated on pretty much everything. I couldn't believe how much Irene knew and it made me feel super comfortable having her do my treatment. Seriously, go to Brazilian Beauty Mount Gravatt and chat to Irene! That was my first tick off the list, as I have never been given so much information before a facial before and I learnt quite a lot about what it was my skin was needing.

We decided to include an 'ASI Pro Peel' - which is only a $35 add on to a facial. The Australian Skin Institute (based in Brisbane!) has developed three unique peels that are available at Brazilian Beauty.
The Mature Skin peel exfoliates, regenerates collagen and elasticity while reducing the appearance of sun damage, uneven skin tone and fine lines. It also helps with hyper pigmentation and other skin discolourations.

Within my treatment, I received a pre-cleanse, cleansing, a peel, mask, massage and a B3 treatment. Basically, I was in heaven. Calming music was playing, I was falling asleep and Irene was doing an amazing job and explained what she was putting on my face and the benefits. My face started feeling so nice after my peel! I was blown away with how much of a difference it made and now I want round 2!

The massage was amazing and in my opinion, added to the whole experience. Irene massaged my head, back, down my neck & arms. I'm just going to throw it out there - ear massages are so damn good! I had to try to not fall asleep, it was super hard. At the very end of my treatment, sunscreen was applied on my face because I had just received a deep treatment and had to still stay safe from UV rays.

I walked away with a couple of products from ASI that I've been using since my facial. The first one is the Pure Hydration Plus. This is used to target eyes, lips and sensitive areas. It's a multivitamin moisturiser with hyaluronic acid (the mecca of hydrators!). The other product is the Pure Pro Exfoliant which is used to exfoliate away dead skin cells, containing Chamomille, Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic Acid. It's used to target fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, scarring, used to open pores and also targets age spots.

I cannot speak more highly of my experience at Brazilian Beauty. Not just of the treatment, but of the service I received from Roxy and Irene. Because I loved it so much, I've decided to give away a facial on my Instagram! Check out @amberlowther for details on how you can win a facial at Brazilian Beauty!
