Beauty Break: My Darphin Facial at Bergdorf Goodman

Last week I was treated to a lovely, luxurious facial in a private room off of the main beauty floor at Bergdorf Goodman. Sponsored by Darphin, the "Front Row Facial" was an attempt to help get members of the press beautiful for the upcoming New York Fashion Week.

I swear, the facialist's hands were magical. Her touch was soft and calming—providing the perfect break from blogging! Since I have sensitive skin (which she diagnosed under her huge, lighted magnifying mirror as combination skin), she focused on hydrating the dry, patchy areas to help to even out the overall tone of my face.

The facial began with a Refreshing Cleansing Milk ($50) to clean my skin. Next, she used a Refreshing Toner ($50) to help balance the pH of my face and a Mild Aroma Peeling Mask ($55) as a means of exfoliation. Then, using one of my favorite products, Tangerine Aromatic Care ($75), I received a full face, neck and shoulder massage.

After the massage, she cleaned my skin again with the cleansing milk and moved on to the Predermine Mask ($85) and the Soothing Eye Contour Mask ($75). I relaxed quietly for fifteen minutes while the anti-aging masks worked their magic!

Then she washed off the masks and applied some Arovita C Serum ($125) and Stimulskin Plus Eye Cream ($130).

Overall, the facial was fantastic. The process took about an hour and they did a thorough job of showing off plenty of products. I certainly couldn't afford to buy everything in one pop, so I was extremely grateful for my parting gift: an entire set of samples from their “First Signs of Aging” program. I plan to use them until I scrape the bottom, but i was so impressed with Darphin's eye creams, I have a feeling Bergdorf will beckon again soon!
