After attending the Seabreeze 16th birthday in December and getting a guided tour of the facilities I was very keen to return for a treatment. I know they probably don’t get too many lads through the doors but skincare shouldn’t be the sole preserve of the fairer sex. In fact theres a fairly solid argument that guys need to look after our skin more than women. I’ll go through the reasons later.

When I arrived I was greeted by the beautiful proprietor Marcia with a very welcoming smile which would set even the most nervous customer at ease. We had a brief chat about the treatment and my general skincare routine. Given my lifestyle and age its in pretty remarkable condition. I put that down to the fact that I have more grooming products than the average pharmacy, so I’m never without a lather of moisturizer leaving the house.

Skin damage from your shave routine or the sun can’t be fixed with the soap and water you use every day. Redness fades, but the underlying problems don’t. In fact, probably more than the ladies, guys need facials, thanks to our coarser skin, larger pores, and increased chance of sun damage, lets be honest we’re not the best for using sunblock in this country. One of the benefits of this treatment is smoother skin which obviously aids a smoother shaving experience.

Today I got “The Max Facial” an anti-aging facial by Kiara, who is definitely a chip off the old block, she's lovely and skilled as her mum Marcia. My lifestyle could be best described as hectic, and i'm not getting any younger so this was ideal for me. First off I got an amazing back massage, never a bad thing on a Thursday afternoon. The facial itself was so refreshing. I’ve had most of the treatments before individually, but this was more intense altogether. It was a cleansing and hydrating and my skin was literally glowing after it. I felt so fresh and rejuvenated after it, this won’t be my last treatment. It's so important to look after your skin lads, even just chatting to the staff during your treatment you can learn a lot.

Huge thanks to the wonderful team in SeaBreeze for looking after me so well. Check out their website for more information.

I received a complimentary treatment with no expectation of a blog in return for it.
