Image review and a giveaway valued at $95

I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing the latest Image Skincare O2 facial and I answered with a 'Hell yes!! I fell in love with this skincare range when I stumbled across it at the Beauty Expo in Sydney last year. My skin has improved dramatically since starting an Image regime.

The O2 facial is designed to exfoliate, illuminate and oxygenate.
The facial steps are:
Cleanser. A gentle milk cleanser massaged in and removed with sponges.
Enzymatic facial peel. I love this, it goes on like gel and then starts getting clumpy and lumpy as it works it's magic.
Oxygenating Facial Masque. This goes on thick and white. Initially, it feels like little ants walking across your face, then like rain drops splashing onto you. You can actually feel and hear the air bubbles popping as the mask starts disappearing. Eventually it's all gone. In the meantime, you are getting a delicious scalp, shoulders and back massage. Here is a teeny video showing the popping mask.
Stem Cell Facial enhancer. This serum is gently massaged over your face, neck and decollate. The facial is finished with moisturiser and eye cream.

As any normal person would, I loved this experience. At one point I felt myself falling asleep but forced myself out of a slumper so I would be able to remember and record my experience. I'll admit that I went into the facial with a huge, red blinder pimple on the side of my nose. Lucky me! After the facial, the redness was gone and the pimple reduced. The next day it was gone altogether.

My skin looked so friggin' awesome that I went out to dinner with my husband later sans makeup. I didn't even need concealer for the blinder. I looked that radiant and fresh that I didn't want to cover it up with products that promised to do the same.

Today I am linking up with IBOT


  1. I'm in desperate need of ME time. Doing things like this is what I consider to be a form of self love. And right now, I need some self love.

  2. I'm hoping I get a facial pressie for mother's day - great giveaway!

  3. I absolutely love getting facials. I only had my first one a couple of years ago but I am in love with them now. It's just so relaxing, and you can't go past the head, neck & shoulder massage either!

    1. And of course I forgot to add... #teamIBOT was here!

  4. It sounds amazing! I have some beautiful Jurlique products that make my skin feel amazing and glow. I just love them.

  5. I love getting facials but it has been awhile and my blackheads are starting to creep back - yuk!

    I am in my fourth - and last - year of becoming a teacher. With assessment looming, my computer has not been turned off for a month, and my buttock is starting to take shape of the computer chair. A facial sure would be a nice shake up, especially at my favourite Day Spa, Beautiful You!

  7. Willing to try anything once. I've NEVER had a facial - always been too scared. Have sensitive skin and happy to give it a whirl. I trust you Rachel so will enter just because I do :) PIP

  8. Oooo if I won this I would give it to my sister who lives in the area - it would be such a great pick me up for her!

  9. It's great when you find a product that does just what it promises. What a lovely relaxing treatment. x

  10. I'm just getting back into having fairly regular facials. When I say fairly regular I mean I have had one facial in the past 6 months and I thought 'Hey, I am going to have more of these!'. Would love to try this facial, sounds amazing.

  11. Why would I like to win this treatment? Where do I start?! The last time I had a facial was before I had children...10 years ago...sad, but true. My face is in desperate need of a pick-me-up and I am in desperate need of some uninterrupted time to myself. :)

  12. Oh what a great prize I did see the posting for this on their face book page and straight away knew it was something that I was going to have to try.

  13. I would like to win because I am feeling old and tired! I dont pamper myself enough as I am a single mum with two teenage boys who want everything all the time. LoL! I feel like falling into blissfull sleep just thinking about getting this done.
