Hello lovelies!
Last week, I visited the newly opened Harbour Skin Clinic (an extension of Harbour Day Spa) in
Cleveland to try some treatments! I love taking the time to have my skin treated - I see it as something that you're always going to get great results out of. My main skin concerns going into the treatment were:
Pigmentation - I have redness on my cheeks that I'd like to have under control.
Oiliness - I get quite oily in my T-Zone. 
In saying that, there are little things that I'd like to have under control. Although I get quite oily, I do experience dehydration of the skin and the occasional breakout. Since I wear makeup almost daily, I find my skin can be quite congested at times and it's always nice to get it treated by a professional to get all of the yucky stuff under control!

Walking into Harbour Day Spa itself was a treat. The day spa facilities are second-to-none, the skin clinic is super professional and everything you'd expect when visiting a specialist, they have a huge salon to get your hair, nails, makeup etc done, a barber for the gents (which is perfectly styled to suit all the manly men out there!) and a huge space dedicated to products where you can shop them straight from the clinic. I can't forget the outdoor area where you can overlook Cleveland harbour when waiting for your hair to set etc. It's a dream location!

Upon arrival, I filled out the required paperwork and outlined my concerns, any problems I may have and everything in between. To do so, I was able to sit at a table with some amazing tea on hand for me to relax straight away.
After  all of the necessary paperwork was done, I was able to take off my gear and get into a comfy robe and massage thongs (usually meant for just the day spa clients, but I was able to have the full experience!). I was then pointed towards their tranquil room where soft music plays against dim lighting and you can help yourself to a chilled glass of water and some nibbles. Before I almost dozed off from being too relaxed, I was taken to the skin clinic section to get started.

My lovely skin therapist, Jordan, was able to create a treatment for me that best suited my skin. The first step in doing so was undergoing a skin analysis, where a photo is taken using scanner technology. This was super cool to watch, as it can determine emerging skin issues and it means that your treatment is completely tailored to your skin type. As you can see from the image below, it shows at what percentage each concern has and it's shown under a number of different images, where you can see how much the area highlighted is built up or damaged. I was also shown what my skin would look like in five years time if I was to continue with my current routine. It was pretty scary! Pores were enlarged and brown spots were prominent. Those are two things that I definitely do not want.

To save my skin from its five year doom, Jordan tailored my facial to perfection. Here, I was able to try a number of treatments in the one go, much of which I haven't tried prior to visiting Harbour Skin Clinic.

My visit to Harbour Skin Clinic included:
Skin Consultation + Deep Cleanse
Customised Specialty Facial including:
- LED Light Therapy
- Alginate Mask
- Peel

Alginate mask. Super scary-looking but ultimately worth it!
The treatment itself was very relaxing and I enjoyed trying different treatment methods. Jordan was very attentive and answered any questions I had and kept me up-to-date on each step in the process. One treatment I will never forget is the Alginate Mask. The first part being that it was totally ok to put over your eyes. My eyebrows and lashes were perfectly safe and it was as simple as peeling it off when it had set. It was such a strange sensation having my eyes slowly black out as the mask was put on. I was strangely calm when the whole thing was on - maybe it was due to my amazing hand & arm massage I received as it was setting!

By the end of my treatment, my skin was smooth and glowing. I walked out feeling so refreshed and confident with how my skin was looking. Jordan applied sunscreen on me to conclude so I was protected by UV rays. All in all, I was incredibly happy with my treatment at Harbour Skin Clinic, the service I received and for Jordan's expertise. I highly recommend visiting and experiencing it for yourself - you won't regret it, I promise.
