Skinician's Miracle Glycolic Peel at The White Orchid Walkinstown

Hey Ladies,

I hope you're all well. I have a unique post for you today, all about the marvel's of The Skinician Glycolic Face Peel. I recently paid a visit to my go to salon in Dublin, The White Orchid in Walkinstown. Some of you may remember the post I did on my experience with Waxperts Hollywood  Treatment I received there. Let me tell you, I was more than a little excited when my favourite beautician Janice asked me to come in to review Skinician's Glycolic Peel, I was unsure what to expect, mainly I was just hoping I didn't leave looking like this.... If you don't get the following reference, we just can't be friends anymore.

Of course, I was in good hands and had one of the most relaxing and enjoyable experiences in my beauty blogging career! Janice had some questions for me: skin type, problem areas etc, and with me under a fleecy blanket of loveliness she set to work.

Janice began by using the Revitalising Cleanser to ensure that my face was clean and fully prepped. She then used the Purifying Cleansing Gel as part of the double cleanse, paying particular attention to the clogged and congested problem areas I had told her about, which by the way smelled so, so good. The next step was the incredibly fine Facial Exfoliator she used to slough away the on-the-surface dead skin. 

Now for the main event, and one of the most heavenly experience I have ever been privy to, the Glycolic Peel itself. Janice applied a generous layer of the treatment, which I have to say smelled absolutely incredible! It tingled a little, but was by no means uncomfortable in any way, shape of form. I found the scent and this entire section of the process so relaxing. While the treatment was working it's magic, Janice used the signature Relaxing Oil for a neck, shoulder and arm massage. As you can imagine, at this stage, I was ready to fall asleep! 

Once Janice removed the Glycolic Peel, she then applied the Purifying Mask, followed by the Hydrating Repair Mask (talk about being pampered!). After they had been rinsed off and Janice checked that I was still breathing due the lack of my regular babbling, she told me that she was in the final stages of the treatment. She applied the uber luxurious Advanced Calming Serum, Restoring Night Cream and Advanced Eye Repair. Janice informed me that she was going to give me a few minutes to bring myself back into the land of the living. My time with Skinician's Glycolic Face Peel was up. 

My final thoughts on the treatment? Absolutely incredible and worth every single cent! Although, a treatment as luxurious as this won't set you back as much as you think. It's €39 for the facial, which is incredibly affordable knowing the quality of both the treatment and the therapist that are included in the price. I left feeling incredibly relaxed, my skin felt soft, smooth, clean and glowing. I'm so in love with The White Orchid, Janice never disappoints and she always goes above and beyond to make sure you're relaxed and happy while providing the best treatments available. I honestly can't recommend her, her beautiful salon and the incredible Skinician Facial enough!

That's it for now ladies,
I hope you enjoyed!

  1. That's such good value for that treatment!!

    1. It was really fantastic, if you're thinking of getting one done, book in with Janice! She's the best :) xx

  2. Ha ha ha, whenever I see "glycolic peel" I think of Samantha and that black veil!!

  3. It looks like you were very happy and satisfied with the result! Well, it was certainly worth every penny you paid for, if you’re able to achieve visible result right after. Just don’t forget to follow initial instructions about what-to-dos after the procedure. The skin becomes more sensitive after a treatment, so it’ll be best if you could find a way to work around that for that beforehand.
