I've never liked people touching my face. It's so foreign to me, and something I had to overcome to actually become a make up artist. It's so intimate to touch a face, and I'm not ready to have that kind of relationship with just anyone! Hence I've always disliked facials. I've had two, and I just can't relax - give me a massage any day.
However, I know so many of you love your facials, and that Covid has led you to seek out alternative arrangements to keep your faces looking yummy and younger than young. Enter LED masks, gua sha, ice globes, and my absolute fave: the Sarah Chapman Facialift. Looks a bit like a torture device, kind of acts like one, but makes you feel ahhhhh all melty, in a good way.
Its all kinds of fantasy weird, supposed to replicate how a facial is performed, with its knobbly, rolly bits doing the job of fingers and knuckles, in the hope that it can reshape, refine and tone the face, whilst getting rid of all that tension you're holding in your jaw (thanks WFH life and tech neck).

So, does it do anything? Actually, yes, anytime I use this consistently I notice a defined version of myself emerging - more seahorse than puffer fish. If you like a good pummelling, that makes you feel both relieved and relaxed afterwards, this is the tool for you. Have a look see at how I use it in my evening routine here.
