Relaxation magic: Get pampered at The Pink Pebble

BY NATALI IVERSON - FEBRUARY 9, 2015

Facing all the pressure associated with the beginning of the working year and having resolved not to be a victim of stress this time, I recently visited The Pink Pebble, situated in Newton Park, Port Elizabeth, for some pampering and relaxation.

Arriving there, the owner, Megan Barnard, immediately made me feel welcome.

She escorted me to their treatment room and after I was comfortable, explained the Sea Collagen and Amazonian Clay Deep Cleanse facial that I was to receive. This detoxifying treatment, which is one of The Pink Pebble’s many RegimA facial treatments, contains the latest technology; this includes encapsulated ceramides, which rapidly targets dry or damaged areas, deeply repairs and absorbs excess oil production.

This treatment is highly recommended for all skin types, especially oily, congested, damaged, ageing and sensitive skins, requiring a deep detox and smoothing.

Megan began by removing my make-up and any excess dirt with a Hydro Active Gel cleanser before applying steam over a papaya exfoliating enzyme. This product helps to open the pores and remove dead skin cells through natural ingredients.

Afterwards, she added an ultra-light massage medium along with an Intense Restorative oil, which she rubbed into my face, neck and shoulders. This massage was absolutely wonderful! I soon felt completely relaxed as I listened to lovely background music and took in the minty scent of the moisturiser.

The face massage done, Megan then added the Sea Collagen and Amazonian Clay Mask. She left me alone while the mask set and I enjoyed my time in natural serenity. A real stress reliever is what this treatment is!

When she later removed my clay mask, I received an ultra-hydrating serum and an Instant Lift leave-on mask, which penetrates deeply into the skin. Megan said that it is also great for brides-to-be to use on the night before their wedding, as it makes your skin glow and feel amazing.

She then added a scar repair moisturiser and then a B-complex day cream that has an SPF of 30, to protect my face against the sun. I left The Pink Pebble completely rejuvenated; my skin looks and feels incredible! What a great way to be freed from stress…
