When I was invited for this new facial treatment I was a little sceptical. I’m the type of person who is always searching for the latest beauty treatments, and yes, they all work on some level but I have yet to find one that’s been long-lasting. I was also a little nervous, as the ‘Fire’ bit in the treatment sounded like it could do some damage to my middle-aged skin!

On arrival at the clinic I was warmly greeted by Sophie the salon manager who soon put me at ease and showed me around the clinic. I then met Sian, who would be performing the treatment, who was also very welcoming and had the most beautiful skin herself, which always helps.

Fire and Ice is a treatment from IS clinical, designed as a mild peel containing glycolic acid and retinol. After cleansing, a mask was applied to my skin and I could feel it tingling. It wasn’t uncomfortable at all but was a strange sensation. After the mask was removed my skin was then cleansed and the ‘Ice’ part of the facial applied, which I was told is designed to calm and rejuvenate the skin. Sian then put cotton pads on my eyes and left the room. It was so relaxing that I almost fell asleep. When she came back my face was moisturised and the treatment finished.

The facial took around 30 minutes so could easily be fitted into a lunch hour or after work.

I have to say when I looked in the mirror I was pink, but I looked glowing as opposed to anything more serious. I could have put make-up over the top but Sian advised me not to so that my skin could absorb all the ingredients in the treatment. I did leave it until well into the following day before finally putting some make-up on.

It’s now a week later and my skin looks fantastic. It actually looks ‘dewy’ and people have commented on how well I look. It seems to improve every day. 
I felt very relaxed at the clinic and would have no hesitation in having further treatments with them. In fact, I actually booked another treatment before I left.

Finally, one thing I should mention is that Fire and Ice Treatment and IS Clinical products are used by many famous faces including Rosie Huntingdon Whitely and Michelle Keegan who both have gorgeous skin. If it works for them that is certainly good enough for me.
