Frankly, I wasn’t really feeling the holiday spirit. Halloween was basically a non-event, having forgot to buy candy (and it isn’t exactly my favorite holiday). Yesterday it was 88 degrees here in Austin – I’m not complaining, but it certainly doesn’t feel like November. But after a blissful hour with Carrie from Carrie Berry Skincare I could have belted out a holiday tune.
Carrie Berry Skincare is located at Bella SALON & Spa in downtown Austin. The salon staff were very welcoming and the spa, in typical Austin fashion, was casual and cozy. Carrie has that friendly, nurturing way about her (she’s a natural with that Oklahoma background). Plus, she finally validated me by conclusively confirming that I do indeed have dry skin, perfectly suited for the fall facial featuring Youth Accelerator Pumpkin Enzyme Peel by SircuitSkin. Actually quite a deal at $75.
SircuitSkin is one of those skincare lines you can’t help but love. They have been in business for almost a decade and I am shocked that more people haven’t heard of them. They have been “green” since inception with focus on pure, fresh ingredients and cutting-edge technology. Products are cold processed and formulated in small batches. And I love they are always cruelty-free and have absolutely no fillers, artificial colors, artificial preservatives or artificial fragrances.
The pumpkin enzyme peel was incredibly gentle – my skin felt hydrated and clean. The peel actually never tingled, which is rarity for me. But I could sense it was active. Pumpkin enzymes naturally remove dead skin cells and deep clean pores while nourishing with Beta Carotene and other nutrients. The fragrance was definitely pumpkin but not in an overly sweet way. I will admit, I had to stop for a Starbucks Pumpkin Latte on the way home.
And it is worth mentioning, I discovered my new favorite cleanser. SircuitSkin X-trap is a super gentle cleanser (can even be used on post-laser/surgery skin and those with rosacea.) But it still has that gratifying foaming action. Smells amazing and works perfectly with the Clarisonic.
