Our Editor Got SkinSpirit’s Signature Facial; These Are the Magical Results

You’ll Want to Flaunt Your Flawless Skin

We all know that COVID-19 has put a damper on all of our usual “normal life” activities, including meeting a friend for a drink, taking a hot yoga class after work, talking to strangers without being six feet apart…and the list goes on. But even more than our weekly or daily routines, it’s caused us to miss those little luxuries that we (know now) were taken for granted. Like getting your hair done, treating yourself to a massage and getting a much-needed facial. Luckily for us, we are slowly welcoming these activities back into our lives at the level at which we are comfortable. Businesses are doing all that they can to make customers and clients feel safe while still giving them the full experience that is offered. Best Signature Facials

At SkinSpirit, located at 2ND & PCH in Long Beach and in Newport Beach, the staff is doing just that to ensure an all-around safe and luxurious experience. From Botox to dermaplaning and even CoolSculpting, SkinSpirit is the ultimate skin and body care destination. I made an appointment at SkinSpirit for the Signature Facial, and I’m going to spill all the deets for you. Trust me, you’re going to want to book an appointment ASAP. 

If I’m being honest, one of my main concerns before my appointment was making sure I felt safe the entire time—which I assume is a thought at the top of most people’s minds. The second I stepped in, those worries disappeared. Upon arriving at SkinSpirit, your temperature is taken and a staff member will ask you a few questions to ensure you have not been exposed or feeling any COVID symptoms before entering the shop. The interior is clean and pristine—literally sparkling and stunning. Once you’re in your private room, your certified medical assistant is wearing gloves, a mask and a face shield the entire time. You’re required to wear a mask until you get into this private room (where it will be just you and the practitioner), and before removing your mask, you have to rinse your mouth with antibacterial wash. 

The SkinSpirit Signature Facial is a medical-grade facial that helps maintain healthy and radiant skin. It’s customized to your concerns and improves the quality of your skin over time. My practitioner, Sabrina Chargualaf, sat down with me beforehand, and we discussed my current skincare routines. She did an evaluation so she could customize the facial to best suit my personal needs and made me feel so comfortable before the treatment. Best Signature Facials

The Signature Facial includes a combination of treatments: microdermabrasion, an enzyme mask, extractions, a neck and shoulder massage and a customized blend of finishing products. Immediately, Chargualaf told me my skin soaked in the first moisturizer, meaning I needed to be drinking more water throughout the day (Who else needs to get better at this?). The microdermabrasion preps the skin for the treatments it will receive; it is a minimally invasive process that removes the outer layer of skin, which consists of dirt and any dead skin. A warm towel is placed on your face in between treatments, and tranquil sounds and scents fill the room. 

The entire facial experience was relaxing, soothing and the perfect self-care experience I’d been craving. After the facial, Chargualaf gave me a folder with post-treatment care, a schedule of when to come back and then walked me through their products with recommendations of what would be best for my skin. My skin was the definition of glowing after the facial, and it felt hydrated and oh so smooth. When I woke up the next morning, my skin was the softest it’s been in months and any blemishes were diminished. Best Signature Facials


All in all, I couldn’t recommend the Signature Facial enough; I’m already looking forward to scheduling my next appointment! Whether you’re in need of a facial or just a little self care, SkinSpirit is the place to go.
