4. Treatments

Skincare favourites: Vitamin C and Retinol, these products get to work and deliver real results for a gift that keeps on giving.

Professional-C® Microdermabrasion Polish + Mask

This Polish + Mask makes a fabulous self-care treat this Mother’s Day. This multitasking skin-polishing mask exfoliates and primes skin for a powerful infusion of 30% Vitamin C, revealing dramatically smoother, brighter and more youthful-looking skin, instantly.

You won’t find 30% Vitamin C in any other product!

When to use: 2-3 times a week apply to fully cleansed, damp skin. Warm up in hands before sweeping gently across the skin to create a thin even layer. Sit back and relax for up to 15 minutes before wiping away the mask with a soft, damp cloth or towel.

Obagi® Retinol 1.0

The ultimate anti-ageing formula which fights the signs of premature ageing and revives skin. Obagi Retinol 1.0 is a high-concentrated retinol formula which promotes a more radiant and youthful-looking complexion. Hydrating jojoba oil and Shea Butter promotes firmness and elasticity, as Vitamins C and E work synergistically to neutralise free radicals.
