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.

A blissful massage experience at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach Spa

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This past weekend, I was lucky enough to enjoy a luxurious and unforgettable signature massage treatment, the Palm Beach Massage. Available at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach, the massage leaves you relaxed with a feeling of bliss.  Not one part of you will feel neglected at the hands of Massage Therapists like Patrick, in this heavenly 80 minutes.

The treatment began with a gentle facial massage using a combination of essentials oils with hints of key lime, sandalwood and vanilla. The aromatherapy immediately induced a feeling of calm and relaxation.  Next Patrick gave me a scalp massage using a Nioxin(R)  Deep Conditioner which left my scalp invigorated with a cool and tingly sensation that lasted throughout the remainder of the experience. My head was then wrapped, allowing the conditioner to soak in, while Patrick proceeded to the full body massage.

Patrick worked his way from my neck and shoulders, to my back and arms and then down to the legs, using a variety of massage techniques from Swedish to Deep Tissue. He also took into consideration my preferences, which he learned up front. Patrick was sure to ask me my preferences before the treatment started. I prefer a lighter touch and that is exactly what I received, as he alleviated every bit of tension in my body. The highlight of the treatment for me was the reflexology of the hands and feet. Reflexology includes pressure techniques, which are applied to the feet or hands, creating a sense of relaxation and improved circulation.

The combination of the three treatments in one 80 minute massage session left me with a blissful feeling. It was obvious to me that Patrick is a seasoned professional and expert at what he does.
