XY Skin and Body, Whitford City

Get glowing fast with this 30 minute peel

Have you ever heard of a lactobotanical peel? If you have, you’re more of a facial/skincare nerd than I am, as I hadn’t until I was invited to have one at XY Skin + Body at Whitford City.

XY Skin + Body are a chain of salons that offer beauty treatments including IPL, waxing and cosmetic procedures like lip fillers and wrinkle relaxers.

They have an abundance of facials too, such as microdermabrasion and medical grade skin peels, which includes lactobotanical peels.

What is a lactobotanical peel?

Lactobotanical peels contain lactic acid to treat the following skin problems:

  • Dehydration
  • Thickened uneven skin tone
  • Sundamage
  • Pigmentation
  • Ageing
  • Mild congestion

I suffer from dehydration, mild congestion, an uneven skin tone and a little sun damage, this facial was ideal for me.

Lacobotanical peels vary in strengths. At XY Skin + Body you can get either a 20%, 30% or 40%. I had a 30% peel plus products by Aspect to revive my dry and congested skin.

We began with cleansing my skin before the exfoliating and hydrating peel, which felt tingly and little uncomfortable – this facial is not meant to be of the relaxing kind with dimmed lights and twinkling music, so if you’re looking for a spa experience, I wouldn’t recommend this one.

The Result

Although it may not have been the most luxurious experience, the lactobotanical peel made my skin look sensaysh!

It only went on for about 20 minutes, but my skin looked radiant, hydrated and utterly soothed for two days after. In fact, this facial had a far better effect than other facials I’ve had that have gone on for an hour or more.

This makes it perfect for those who are looking for a quick cleanse, an injection of hydration and plenty of other skin loving goodies.

If you suffer from any of the skincare issues listed above, I strongly recommend getting one done, even if it’s on your lunch break!
