The CBD Facial at Palm Beach Facials

When Palm Beach Facials‘ Esthetician and Owner, Brittany Johnston, extended an invitation to me, the CBD Facial on the menu immediately caught my eye. There is so much buzz around CBD. It seems to be the new “it” product and I strongly believe we have only seen the tip of the iceberg when it comes to CBD. Soon enough it will be popping up all over the place, whether it be as a supplement, in our skincare products, or our food and beverages.

I wanted to see what all the buzz was about when it comes to CBD skincare first hand. I have tried it as a supplement to help get a good night’s sleep but have never used it topically on my skin.

Set in the heart of Palm Beach Island, Palm Beach Facials, the private spa is located inside a charming commercial building that is clean and immaculate. Brittany’s setup makes for a calming, peaceful experience in a posh, comfortable setting. There is free parking on the street so the arrival experience was convenient and stress-free.

Brittany is an absolute treat to meet. She takes her time, pays close attention to detail, and gave me one of the best facials I have ever had.

Highlights of the 90 minute CBD Facial included:

  1. A double cleanse started out with an oil-based cleanser with steam and then lead into a foaming cleanser with steam
  2. Brittany uses high-quality, clinical skincare products from IMAGE Skincare and took her time to carefully apply each product with a gentle touch and soothing massage application.
  3. Brittany carefully analyzed my skin correcting any flaws with careful extractions followed by an extremely relaxing facial lymphatic massage
  4. A high-frequency skincare machine followed which stimulate circulation, rejuvenate and tightens pores
  5. The CBD oil HydroJelly masque is unlike anything I have ever experienced. It is poured over the eyes, face, and lips and has an awesome cooling feeling. Once it dried she peeled it off in just one pull.
  6. A non-clogging CBD topical Oil was slowly massaged into the face skin, decollete, neck, and shoulders
  7. Finishing touches included a Vitamin C serum, lip balm, sunscreen, and eye cream
  • cleansing the face with a foaming cleanser
  • lymphatic massage of the face
  • Skin care using high frequency wand

“The HydroJelly Mask is specifically designed to calm the skin by reducing inflammation. It’s packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, and electrolytes.” Brittany explained. When asked why Brittany likes to incorporate these HydroJelly Masks into her facial offerings she said, “I love the HydroJelly Masks because of their unique consistency and the application/removal process. They are also amazing due to their cooling sensation. This allows the skin to constrict which makes the skin tighter, reduces puffiness and pores appear smaller.”

So now for the question, everyone has been waiting to be answered. “Do you get high from the CBD Facial? “

The answer is “no”. While CBD oil is from a cannabis plant, it doesn’t have the same ability to create a “high” or state of euphoria as marijuana or THC. CBD is so popular because it’s been proved to have tons of healing, positive benefits without the psychoactive qualities of marijuana. So while there was no high, I left Palm Beach Facials feeling calm with a radiant glow. I was extremely satisfied with the fact that my skin was virtually flawless, soft, and supple thanks to Brittany.

CBD infused skin care products may offer healing benefits from clearing up acne to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, due to its anti-inflammatory nature it treats conditions like psoriasis and eczema.

To experience the HydroJelly masks and a facial worthy of the spa’s Worth Avenue location visit Brittany yourself at Palm Beach Facials. You will be in good hands for sure.

Palm Beach Facials is located at 205 Worth Ave #205, Palm Beach, FL 33480

Face to face with Facial Specialist Lisa Hunter

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After years of working in a holistic medical environment, Lisa Hunter, Facial Specialist and Licensed Esthetician is now offering her services in the comfort and privacy of your very own home. The best news about this is you can now receive her services at a fraction of the cost.

After years of experience and experimentation with her own skin she has perfected a skincare treatment that virtually combines three services in one for optimum results in just five steps.

What you can expect:

1)      Step One- Lisa will review your skin care history and concerns before deciding on a treatment plan that will work best to suit your individual needs.

2)      Step Two- Lisa cleanses and tones the skin on the face and neck area using Lisa’s preference of the finest line of holistic products. This phase dissolves dirt and oil.

3)      Step Three -A Resurfacing Facial Treatment is performed next. This is a non-invasive procedure which increases blood flow and encourages new cell growth while skin becomes noticeably smoother, firmer, and more vibrant immediately. The tool Lisa uses lightly “sands” away the top layer of your skin so that the products she uses on you during the treatment in addition to your products at home will absorb into the skin. This will rid your complexion of dullness.

4)      Step Four-A very light anti-aging chemical peel which involves the application of a solution to the entire face. Your skin will feel a slight tingle effect or sting and days later you will notice the skin’s top layers will begin to peel revealing a layer of brand new fresh skin beneath.

5)      Step Five- Lisa thoroughly rehydrates your face and neck area with a hydrating mask that she allows to permeate skin for about ten minutes. Followed by a serum that she gently massages into the skin and lastly a sunscreen.

Lisa uses the same winning combination of treatments on her own skin. She explained to me that she took a personal interest in skin care because when she was pregnant she suffered from severe and unsightly Melasma, a common condition where dark brown spots or patches appear on the face. She spent lots of time researching how to eliminate Melasma and now wants to help other women or men with their skincare concerns by sharing her findings with you.

Important things to consider:

  • Treatments like this at local spas cost double and triple the cost per treatment. Lisa’s winning combination comes to you at a mere fraction of the costs it normally would.
  • Lisa offers three services in one visit for rapid and transforming results
  • To maintain results or to rid your skin of dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles, Melasma or other skincare issues regular treatments of at least one per month are highly recommended.
  • Anti-aging peels like the one that Lisa administers may cause slight dryness or peeling 3-4 days after your treatment to reveal rejuvenated and refreshed skin beneath. Do not schedule a service like this the week of a special event or banquet.
  • On the other hand, want to look your absolute best for that special event or occassion. Just let Lisa know and she will rejuvenate and refresh your skin, help with fine lines, sun damage, and dull/dry complexion.

What clients are saying about Lisa Hunter, Facial Specialist:

“After my treatment with Lisa, my skin immediately felt firmer, smoother to touch and the enlarged pores in my t-zone area were diminished. There were definitely immediate results and my complexion appeared noticeably radiant.”

Karen Cantor

”My facial was very tranquil… Lisa’s magical hands are very comforting and soothing. My skin never looked or felt better. The product she used are great for my skin. Lisa is a natural talent!”

Isabella Aronov Mushiev

It has been my divine pleasure to be the recipient of “The Ultimate Facial” given by Lisa Hunter. It is evident that she loves what she does, because she does it so well from start to finish. I have had the microdermabrasion/chemical peel facial twice in the last couple of months and my skin looks radiant…many people comment that my skin looks beautiful and I look so young…that is thanks to Miss Lisa. I would highly recommend her services to everyone!”
