A couple weeks ago I went to get my first facial EVER! You heard me right… I got my first facial.
Luckily, I had the chance to head to a local skincare studio called Bronze Effects. I have been to this studio before and absolutely love it! The team that works here is always so welcoming and knowledgable. I usually head here if I want to get a spray tan but now I’ll also be heading there to get my facials!
I’m not going to lie my skin has always been one of my biggest insecurities. I have struggled with acne for a lot of my life. Luckily within the past year my skin has been getting better with the help of my dermatologist and now getting facials.
A lot of what is on my skin is left over scars from previous breakouts. Let me just say acne scars are so, so, SO difficult to get rid of.
Going in I was nervous of coming out being red and splotchy because I had somewhere to go after. But that wasn’t the case at all. I came out of the facial with my skin glowing and looking so smooth.
After talking to Melissa the owner, and Karly the skincare specialist we decided that for my skin microdermabrasion would work the best. Sounds like a big name and pretty scary right?! But it’s not at all! There are actually a ton of benefits of getting microdermabrasion done.
I know what you are probably thinking… but what the actual heck is microdermabrasion?! Basically it works to exfoliate and remove the superficial layer of dry, and dead skin cells. The machine buffs out the skin as well as polishes it by using a diamond tip to help loosen the dead skin cells from the face. Microdermabrasion is great for fine lines, uneven pigmentation, acne scars or clogged pores.
I have already seen some major improvements with my skin! Which is a HALLELUJAH moment for me. I even had a dermatologist appointment a couple days after my facial and he even saw improvements!
Melissa the owner has the best style! Literally, I walked into the studio and felt at home. The space was just gorgeously renovated and looks straight out of an Anthropology catalog. Aka my dream!!
The room where all the magic happens AKA the facials. This room is so calming and relaxing. I was able to enjoy the heated bed as my facial was in progress, as well as the oil diffuser and calming sounds of the ocean.
All in all, my first facial was absolutely amazing all thanks to Bronze Effects. For all my local Connecticut gals I cannot recommend Bronze Effects enough, the studio is located in East Windsor! You will truly love the studio, the team, and all the services! Check out Bronze Effects Instagram where you can set up your first appointment.

Hope you girls enjoyed hearing my first facial experience!
