My Take on Facials: Blitz Facial Bar

As a professionally trained Makeup Artist, I know all too well that a great makeover depends on great skin. I’m still fairly new to facials, and have only  tried a few in the past year. I travelled to Japan last year, and booked a facial knowing my skin could use some extra hydration after the thirteen hour flight. I hate to admit it, but I did not enjoy my first experience at all. I actually did quite a bit of research and booked my facial at a highly credited spa, so it was unfortunate as to how unprofessional the service was. I loved how my skin felt after my treatment, so I really wanted to get the same results from a friendlier establishment.

Since then, I had been on the hunt for a spa in Toronto that not only makes my sensitive skin happy, but also provides excellent service. And Guys, I found it!

Blitz Facial Bar is exactly what I’ve been searching for. Blitz does a body AND a facial bar. I tried their Leslieville location since I live in walking distance, and could easily go to and from make-up free. After finishing exams, I thought Id treat my face to this relatively new place in the area. From their list of facial services, I tried The Extractor with a Plump it Up booster. I have never been so relaxed getting my face touched in my entire life (I don’t like my face touched at all!). I’m pretty sure I fell asleep ha ha. I had a few extractions which were pain-free, and the plump it up booster was a hydrating glass of water for my face!

The service here is  wonderful. Everyone was friendly and really professional. They were also kind enough to let me photograph the bar. I really enjoy the bright interior aesthetic of Blitz, but that’s just an added bonus. There was no pressure to purchase the bar’s facial products. I find that whenever I’m at a spa, the staff really push their products on me as a selling point, which I really dislike. Since the products were explained to my during my treatment (again, in a non-sales pitch way), I asked about the moisturizer myself. I purchased the Repairing Moisturizer for $50, and it’s 50ml of heaven. I can moisturize my entire face with one pump, and it’s done a fantastic job at keeping my skin hydrated during the dry winter season. As I mentioned earlier, I also have sensitive skin and I have had no issues with it.

I highly recommend Blitz Facial Bar to anyone wanting to treat themselves to a pampering experience. They’re more than just a pretty facial!

Why do I love facials?

  • My skin feels softer than a baby’s bottom
  • My face looks like I drank 10 glasses of water
  • It looks like I got 10 hours of sleep!
  • The results last quite a while… or until exams. 

You can definitely re-create the experience and benefits at home. I will perhaps do another post on this in the future. 🙂

If you guys have any questions on facials OR have any recommendations, please let me know in the comments. I always love trying new places, although I’ll be back here asap.
