Seven Days of Skin : No ‘Samantha’ Facial Peel!

Toorak Beauty Lounge – My absolute FAVOURITE place for beauty! Every time I leave, I feel so refreshed, relaxed, and excited for my new skin. I spend the next 4 weeks in anticipation and cannot wait for my next visits. I just love it!

After another monthly visit to Toorak Beauty Lounge, Kat wanted to show me some new tricks with her glorious magic. She certainly does have special powers and they definitely work. We had previously discussed using a dermal roller to help my skin rejuvenate, but instead we went with a facial peel. I have never had one before, but had quiet visions of myself walking out of the salon with a vague resemblance to Samantha from Sex and The City after she had one… One of the many nightmares women have when undergoing treatments we’ve never experienced before! And cue video:

Thankfully, it was not at all that bad. In fact, it was quite pleasant and my skin absolutely loved it! Instead of showing you the end results, I thought a little daily diary of images might be able to help you better understand the process. The treatment itself was so relaxing, I fell asleep. When the peel solution was placed on my face, there was a little tingle, but nothing itchy or painful. The hole treatment took just over an hour. Bliss!

Day One:

My skin LOVED the reaction from the treatments. It was soft and felt fresh, but not too abused either. It was just like a normal facial. I had had a few extractions (and tried some myself… oops!) and hens the redness. My skin was good, just not clear. There were a few white heads popping up on my forehead just after the treatment also, which was part in parcel of having the treatment.


Day Two:

I had the reoccurring white-heads that bug me, but they were very superficial and really only on the surface. There was nothing too deep about them so they were popped just after a shower, and released quite easily. Along with the Stem-Factor and my face wash, my skin was still very soft and supple.



Day Three (Morning):

The skin was feeling good, although I could feel it was on its last legs before the peel. It was still moist and soft, but I knew it was on its last legs. I had also found a big deep pimple just below my lip, which you can see I had already partly squeezed the day before – and I had tried to pop it that morning. As you can see, I caused it a lot of stress and it resulted in some bleeding – not ideal!


Day Three (night): The peel starts to happen! As you can see, my chin has started to peel and dry out. The skin underneath was still very soft, but the dead skin was easily removed with a few rubs of my fingers. This also happened around my nose and forehead, but not as severely. It was quite easy to remove, and didn’t at all hurt. The new skin was very fresh and soft, and simply glowed. It was beautiful!

Day Five:  After the peeling, my skin felt so soft and fresh, and literally glowed. I was so smooth and shiny, and make-up application was a breeze. My bigger forehead pimples had began to die off (finally!!) and I was on the home stretch! Hooray!


Day Seven: Clearing up! Thankfully! I dislike pimples just as much as the rest of us, but my skin was finally recovering. Even the one on my lip was disappearing and the forehead pimples had only a lone soldier left. He fought hard, but I beat him in the end

  • Why do @Dyson products make me this happy? Once you know.. you know! Just like a good coffee- it looks so good, peps me up and works every time! Stylish yet functional, lightweight and powerful. My V11 is the ultimate. Take a look at my stories for how great she really is! So easy to use, light in the hand, battery management and simple to empty. It doesn’t get any better. Also conveniently timed for Mackenzie to run from watering the garden, through the dirt and grass for a wet cuddle with Mummy.. zoom in on those feet..! 🤦🏼‍♀️ #WorkingWithDyson #V11Aus

  • If you haven’t been watching my YouTube channel, you might know what’s been happening in my life (I’ll forgive you, you’re a busy bee too!), but we have endured many highs and lows these last few months and it has been challenging to say the least. #LinkInBio
Usually, Monday’s and Thursday’s are my work days. Where I just get it all DONE. Since we haven’t had kindy, it’s been busy busy busy here, juggling time together and time for the kids, health appointments, hospital stays and work to get done. 
I have to say thank you to you though, for your patience and kindness through everything in front of and behind the scenes. It’s been crazy but we truly have appreciated your patience through this. 
Our minds are open to what ever is coming and our hearts are full. And it’s all thanks to you. 🙏🏼 #CoulthardAndCo
  • To everyone that says: ‘I can’t curl with heat tongs’ ‘My hair doesn’t hold a curl’ ‘Blow dries don’t work for me’ Say hello to your new best friend. The @Dyson Airwrap is here to answer your hair prayers! Coming from a girl who CAN curl with heat tongs, who’s hair doesn’t hold a curl and blow dries never looked any good a few hours later.. this genuinely works and I am in love! Three days, a few hot showers, some exercise, two pony tails and a messy bun later, this hair still has curls. Ladies, you’re welcome. #WorkingWithDyson #DysonAirwrap
  • Hello, friend. How are you? Is it obvious I have a camera that I take photos on that isn’t my phone? It’s to save you from seeing four thousand selfies from me and enables me to take a photo without actually pressing the button on the camera.. if you ever see me holding my phone in a shot, that’s probably what I’m up to 😜 scroll down my feed and you’ll probably see a few..! Insta-husbands are great, but this is how I manage when I’m solo!
  • My @Dyson V11 does many things.. although I am yet to see her make my bed (give it time..!). Forgiving her all for all her sins, she makes up for them in so many other ways. Have you seen this girl run? She is almighty! She helps me function with a clean house AND makes me look stylish. The new torque cleaner head intelligently adapts to deep clean carpets and extends run time on hard floors. AND I get a real time countdown of the remaining battery time so I can ensure I have all my job's done. Just in time for spring cleaning. I am so in love with her! #WorkingwithDyson #DysonauV11
