Dermalogic trip.

last week we went to dermalogica in york. when we arrived we had tea and bicuits, then we sat down at a skin care bar. We tried a range of products called ‘clean start’ which is specifically made for teenagers. At the skin care bar, we pushed our hairs back and tried out the products. We cleansed toned and moisturized. My favourite products were the, cleanser, spot it and the lip balm. this was because they smelt nice and worked well. Then we had a chance to win a mini mirco-zone wich lasted 20 minutes. We watched the treatment being done on the winner at the end of the day. I had a fun day :).

Dermalogica Trip!

Last thursday we visited a dermalogica skin centre in york , this is where they train people to become skin therapists and perform dermalogica treatments . We were very lucky and got to test out the new ‘ Clean Start’ teen skincare range . We used the cleanser , toner, scrub, spot treatment , tinted moisturisers & lipgloss! they left my skin feeling & looking really healthy! they also chose someone to perform a special treatment using dep cleanses and electical tools . overall the day was really great & I have learned lots of things about my skin that I never knew before , for example , not to pop spots!

A day out to Dermalogica..

Last week we went to dermalogica in york. When we arrived we had a hot drink and biscuits, then we went into a room and sat down at a skin care bar. Here we tried dermalogica’s new brand “clean start” which was made expecially for teenagers. There was three sections the first one was the “getting clean” section which contained two products, the clenser and the toner. In the second section called “taking on issues” which contained 4  products for treating spots and blackheads. And finally the last section was the “protecting skin” which contained 3 products which were two types of moisteriser and a lip balm. After there was a chance to win a mini micro skin test. My favirote part of the day was trying out the different products, however the worst part was there wasn’t enough time. Overall the day was really good and I enjoyed it very much .X


Last Thursday on the 3rd of March we took a visit to a skin centre called ‘Dermalogica’  click on the website to find some of their products

The visit was great, we tried the products on our own skin and a class mate also had there own special treatment with their skin and had their skin analyised. We were greeted welcoming with tea/coffee and biscuits and treated nicely. I dont have anything negative to say except from that I think I should of had the special treatment although it was chosen fairly.

In the world of hair and beauty we learnt about opening our own business up and how we would go about it if we wanted to open it in the future, we wrote a report on this. In health and safety we learnt about the legislation’s and regulations of working in a salon, and what the colours of signs mean. In hair care and styling we went into the salon, and we learnt how to do scalp plaits and vertical rolls. We then looked at different hair growths, and shape of heads. Also we did about how personality reflects in hairstyles. In skin care and make-up a beautician came in and showed us how to apply make-up and how to cleanse tone and moisturise. Then we practised on each other.
