It’s been way too long since my last facial, as a mom I seem to run out of Me time. It’s always go-go-go in my house. Every night is filled with practice in whatever sport they are playing at the time, every weekend is a tournament or game. This week I took a pause and got a facial by Corrine! It was so overdue. With stress and lack of sleep, breakouts happen.

I needed a facial that would really dig in so Corrine did an Arctic Berry Enzyme Exfoliant facial.

She first double cleansed my face with the Eucalyptus Cleansing Concentrate (my favorite). Many people do not double cleanse, its a MUST, you will see maximum results. The first cleanse is to remove makeup, dirt, and dead skin. The second cleanse is to penetrate your skin and do its job. You don’t clean a pan with food stuck on it once, you do it twice, first to remove the food than second to actually clean it. You should double up and all, washing your face, your body, and washing your hair. I know I used to think it was a waste of product but it’s actually a waste if you are using products and only see a fraction of the results.

The arctic berry enzyme exfoliant breaks down and removes dead skin to leave your skin feeling refreshed and new. A blend of four antioxidant-rich plants prevent the visible signs of aging, while essential vitamins, minerals, and Omega 3 fatty acids replenish the skin’s moisture and restore the appearance of elasticity.

The Arctic Berry Enzyme Exfoliant is part 1 of a 3-step Professional system:
Step 1: Arctic Berry Enzyme Exfoliant
Step 2: Arctic Berry Pro Advanced Peel Activator MA20
Step 3: Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream

Key Ingredients

After she really worked in the Arctic Berry she than added the Arctic Berry Advanced Peel Activator. I felt a bubbely sensation, I could feel it working its way through my skin.

It deeply exfoliates skin and refines and evens the look of skin tone. Contains very strong antioxidant and age-defying benefits which help to reduce the appearance of inflammation and redness.
