The La Prairie counter manager Michelle specially organised a family facial mainly due to my mum's visit who has been a loyal La Prairie client for many years. So, I went to Nordstrom with my mum and my man for a La Prairie facial with Jaye last weekend.
It could've been nicer if all of us could get our facial done at the same time, but as there's only Jaye who does the facials at this point, we had to get it done one by one. So we decided to go in my mum-me-my man order.
As my mum isn't too fluent with English, I stayed with mum during her facial after making sure it's fine with Jaye and Michelle. It was very considerate of them for understanding :).
Before Starting - Mum
My mum just arrived about a few days ago, so she's still jet-lagged and her skin has been quite dry and dull-looking from the plane. But surprisingly, regardless of how old she is now, she doesn't show many signs of aging/sagging around her jaw line, neck and decollete according to Jaye under LED lights XD.
Before Starting - Me
Shortly after her facial, I got mine done while mum was sitting on the chair and waiting for me. Jaye asked me if I have any specific needs or concerns, so I told her that I've been getting very little and irregular sleep and have been feeling very tired for the last week or so.
Oh my, she really gave me an extensive heavenly massage XD. Yep, literally heavenly! She also told me that my skin got very dehydrated, so she put on full Platinum Rare range on my face like how she did on mum's.
And yes, you get that instant glow! My skin felt very quenched and smooth. The best part was that my skin no longer looked tired XD. Even better, mum really enjoyed her facial, and she complemented several times on how much she loved the way Jaye gave her a massage. After our facial, mum and I got our make-up done at the counter downstairs while Jaye was doing facial on my man XD.
Make-up done by Michelle (Me) & Gloria (Mum)
Michelle did awesome work on my face as I requested for a natural look. She actually did an excellent job concealing my post pimple scar that I popped a few days before the facial. LOL. Yep, I couldn't resist it :3. But you know what, Jaye told me that I got everything out perfectly :P.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I've already spent quite a bit of money at the counter a week ago. So technically we didn't need to buy any on the day, but I got their new Cellular Swiss UV Protection Veil Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 (full review) and Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 as I enjoyed the samples that I've received from Michelle previously.
My mum and I also received a very lovely note from Jaye and Michelle along with some of the samples including eye masks, which was very sweet <3.
I could tell that mum really loved Michelle and Jaye, especially their professional superb service. Indeed, it's always nice to see them as you could tell from our glowing skin including my man :3.
