I went for a facial on Saturday, at a place I've been to before, using the brand I usually use. The lady used the same as she has done before, apart from one thing, which she said at the time might 'tingle'. It did, but I didn't really think anything of it. yesterday, I woke up with a big, red, blotchy, itchy face, worse than it's ever been before. Do I go back to complain? On the one hand, there was no malice or incompetence, just bad luck I suppose. On the other, I paid for this to make me look and feel good, and it's had precisely the opposite effect. Has anyone else ever gone back to complain? What can I expect? And does anyone have any tips for calming down a blotcht, itchy, red face?
I would complain. Definately. And soon. They need to know what happened. I would be surprised if a red blotchy itchy face was the intended result. Sounds like you may have had an allergic reaction to what they used.
Try Piriton. I think you can buy it over the counter, but it might make you drowsy, so I would avoid driving after taking a tablet until you see the effect it has on you.
Dermalogica have a newish product that can be used for professional use only with any of there exfoliaters but it is really strong and needs to be used properly.I would go back to the salon so the therapist can see whats happened and she will have a record of what she used and needs to record what you are allergic to.The therapist will advise you what to do.
Thanks for your help people. They're closed today, but will be down tomorrow to complain very nicely and see what the hell they can do about me. meanwhile, I'll keep my head down and try not to make eye contact
