I Got A Face Gym Workout Facial For $325 | Beauty With Mi | Refinery29

I think it went to fall asleep no way this feels like a little axing oh yeah I forgot no naps hey guys man and this is beauty with me today I got a facial at the gym sort of I went to face gym it's a spa that has made very very intense facial massage its bread and butter I've been hearing about face gym for quite some time now so when the brand reached out to us to give us the exclusive to film the brand's Nu Skin IV machine which is an add-on to any efficient original facials I jumped on the opportunity to try it out and we filmed it for your viewing pleasure before we show you please make sure you are subscribed down below beauty with me comes out every Monday at 11:00 a spaceship isn't your typical Spa in fact its founder Inga Theron would describe it more as a place that you go to work out your face instead of having you know your typical private rooms there are four chairs lined up where their trainers so their facialists will do their work on your face hey guys I'm here with Angus Erin she is the founder of face gym and I am gonna get my first workout today I'm very excited because I've heard a lot of very good things about this I've been dying to know how face gym came about I've done a ton of different facials but I have never done one like this before I realized that muscle manipulation wasn't being done effectively enough people were still doing facials and product on products off just doesn't give you that long-term efficacy that I think you can actually get when you work relate the muscles and so I was like there's got to be a different way why don't I take a training approach which I'm doing with my body on a pilot to beauty and that's when I started working with a plethora of experts to try and create a protocol that actually stimulates the forgotten what we call forgotten falling muscles in the in the face at their on suggestion I went for the game face treatment which like most workout starts with a slow warmup my facialist l started with stretching my neck cleansing my skin giving me a gentle facial massage before whipping out a little red yoga ball that she used to stretch relieve tension on my face open at my sinuses the whole shebang so how's your skin feeling today actually my skin feels pretty good I was prone to congestion okay we use our training serum mm-hmm since you say you're prone to breakouts I'm gonna be using our clear skin then after applying the serum to my face I'll lift out the big guns and that was a radiofrequency machine now radiofrequency the type of energy that encourages cell turnover and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin by heating up the layers of the skin this is actually a device I have never used before so I was a little bit worried that it would burn it actually didn't at all it felt really good it had this rotating knob on it that felt like a little massage there were sections of my face where it was a little bit uncomfortable but overall it was a really pleasurable experience then it was time for the cardio portion which was essentially a very intense super wife whipping fast facial massage that stimulates circulation brings blood to the surfaces of skin and improves texture Elle's hands like work so quickly like gliding past your skin it looks like it would hurt but it actually felt really good it felt like it's just a really fast range facial massage it helps drain lymph it helps improve circulation I generally really really liked it then it was time to sculpt my face and not gonna lie this was the portion that was actually the most uncomfortable imagine a masseuse working out knots on your back but doing that on your face the pressure was pretty firm but afterward I really do think I could see a slight difference in the contours of my face and just overall lifting once the cardio workout was done l moved on to another device it's a microcurrent device the microcurrent device basically uses electricity to stimulate muscles and cause them to tighten I could actually feel my lips and my eyelid like twitching as the device glided over those areas finally we got to the main event which was the Nu Skin IV machine inspired by the vitamin drips an intravenous fluid that people get when there's feeling kind of bland ingo was inspired by the high technology and wanted to create something for the face it had similar boosting effects without a needle it's essentially a customizable form of hydrogen evasion which uses water oxygen and special serums to exfoliate and help with dark spots and hyperpigmentation after spraying the detox water on my skin as the first step which contains silver oxide which is antibacterial hyaluronic acid which is hydrating and aloe vera juice that's very soothing she moved on to a serum L decided to use two different serums in my face the clear skin cocktail and the glow shot both gyms combined to fight acne with a mix of acids and vitamin b5 to hydrate and tone the skin the best way to describe this treatment is quickly it's not painful but you're definitely aware that there's a spray going like 200 miles per hour on your skin it doesn't hurt but you definitely feel a little bit of that sensation after my skin was sufficiently sprayed l moved on to some facial guava and finished off with some products just to keep my skin nice and hydrated and protected after I left the studio I've got to admit that before I went to face gym I did have a little too much wine the night before so my skin was definitely feeling puffy after I got the facial I could definitely see a difference in just the general contours of my face it was kind of cool to see that like slight effect without makeup in truth though I think I might be a little bit too young to see drastic results from face gym their treatments ranged from $70 for the signature facial to 275 for the game face which is what I got I think that to really see market results you'd have to go back multiple times actually anger recommends six times for me though I think is something that I would do before a big event or if I'm just feeling like just gross congested and puffy because it really does help with lymphatic drainage and helps reduce inflammation for those of you who don't have a face gym near you or simply just don't want to spend the cash on it I'd recommend doing some facial massage at home you can do it just with your fingers as you put on your moisturizer when you do an oil cleanse or you can spring for a facial massage tool I just got this new facial Gua saw tool I got this one at herbivore botanicals you can use it to give yourself a little facial massage in the evening or in the morning when you're just applying your product it's good to get a little bit of a deeper massage than you can get with your fingers but honestly I highly recommend both okay that is it thank you guys so much for watching I really enjoyed making this video please let me know in the comments what

  1. What else would you like to see Mi-Anne try here on Beauty With Mi? Let us know in the comments!

  2. hers somali

  3. I feel like most facials in Japan would include the muscle manipulation for a fraction of the price.

  4. This slaps


  5. 1:55

  6. Wow a 325$ facial.. I feel like I can do it every week

  7. Of course inga recommends going back 6 times. What a load of shit 🙄

  8. I heard about the face gym from a coworker. If I had the money, I would totally pay for the services. I'm way too lazy to buy the roller or stone and do face messages or steam my face. This seems relaxing.

  9. I think differently of what Facial is.

  10. She goin to talk throughout the whole facial like shutup

  11. I'd pay hundreds of dollars to get a facial from a professional

  12. I think most beauty therapist would not agree with all that slapping,pulling,rolling,it's all too much.I'm super satisfied with my simple morning and evening routine: Raw honey,few drops of essential oil, gently massage in,wait 20 mins. rinse,little baking soda,mixed with a little coconut oil gentle scrub, rinse,steam 5 mins. drink lots of water,daily juice like celery,cucumber,parsley. Juicing and lots of water is %75 part of glowing clear skin. Who spends $325. on a facial,and need 6- try brain massage

  13. This looks so amazing I want this but I would never pay that much


  15. I use 4 products on my skin( face soap, toner, moisturizer spritz, and rose hip oil) and it costs like $50 for a year's worth. No skin issues at all. Just find the few products that work for you. You don't need expensive stuff lol. Pseudoscience is fun to watch, but please don't go out and believe that it will do anything lasting besides take your money.

  16. hi 209

  17. anyone never see a difference when she does facials? I wish they would give facials to different ppl that need them

  18. Is there something similar in Vancouver?

  19. All the things women tried to scam other women’s money

  20. Wow! For $300 you can look EXACTLY the same!!
