Had massive treat today, 1 hour facial whilst DH took 7 month old DS out for an hour.

Reckon I lasted about 5 mins, before I conked out. Just remember hearing myself snore as I came round. And she was just finishing with the moisturizer. Missed the whole thing!

For all I know she could have gone off for a 1 hour coffee break & left me asleep grin

Yeah my hairdresser giggles as I always start dozing off

It was warm, cozy & I quite like the sound of crashing waves she had playing on the CD

I always end up dozingwhile I have my eyelashes done and that's not even an intentionally relaxing experience!

A one hour facial? Is that normal? What the hell do they do for an hour?

TheoriginalMrsDarcy Sun 17-Aug-14 23:23:32

I've done it before too!!! It's really embarrassing but I felt really dozy and relaxed afterwards.

exit I have no idea- I was asleep! smile

Well don't be embarrassed, loads of my clients have done this! It's nice to know you feel genuinely relaxed.
I will admit to lying and denying a client snores to protect blushes grin.
Exit, a one hour facial is a basic facial. I've worked in salons where they do 1hr 40mins! Total luxury.

I used to be a beauty therapist and our luxury facial lasted 1hr15mi. It included a lovely massage and at least half the clients would fall asleep. I always took it as a compliment!

I do this all the time, it's a bit embarrassing when you start drooling mind...

Oh I do that all the time and agree, the therapist probably does the first bit then has a nice cuppa tea and a read of MN before going 'oh, must wake Lonny up with a brisk exfoliation.'

Not that I care. Best naps ever.

I had a facial that took about an hour and seemed to involve a lot of gentle exfoliation and repeated slatherings of stuff...finished with shoulder massage and that's when I nodded off!

MrsTerryPratchett Mon 18-Aug-14 00:55:28

repeated slatherings of stuff just about covers it grin

I fell asleep during visiting hour when I had no visitors, in the maternity ward.

Woke myself up to the entire ward plus visitors sitting in total silence just staring at me.

Nod off every time, also fell asleep during one of those hot and cold stone massages!!!

A facial is guaranteed to relax me more than a body massage. I'm always on the brink of sleep. With a body massage I'm a bit on edge wondering where their hands are going next but a facial is more predictable.

Sign of a good therapist. Glad you enjoyed it. Snoozing is delicious.

MrsDavidBowie Mon 18-Aug-14 06:23:51

I have a facial once a month and usually drift off when she is giving me a head massage.

londonrach Mon 18-Aug-14 08:48:02

Facials are amazing relaxing and one hour is normal. Glad you enjoyed it even if you don't remember it. Took mum to one after her cancer treatment and she looked like a new woman afterwards. Although we paid for one hour the lady did one hour and a half for mum.

Lol - I love this!! Sounds blissful ��

Kittykatmacbill Mon 18-Aug-14 09:22:06

Oooh idid this when I had an 80 minute pregnancy massage, I vaguely woke up when ever I had to turn. Did feel a bit of a con... But feel so amazing afterwards she must have been something!

I've done it at the end of yoga before.

MrsDavidBowie Mon 18-Aug-14 09:49:43

At least you didn't fart.

Or maybe you did grin

Eastpoint Mon 18-Aug-14 09:50:52

I've just nodded off while a DC has an eye check up at the opticians. It was all quiet & peaceful.

I fell asleep during a leg wax once.
