I try: The Murad IP5 Facial


I have to confess that I’d never been to a Caci Clinic before setting foot in their High Street branch yesterday, so I was a little excited and nervous all at the same time. I’d heard of their no-nonsense approach to treatments and was rather impressed, and that their new IP5 Facial was the ultimate in anti-ageing and then some.
A 60 minute treatment, the Murad IP5 60 minute facial is Caci’s most comprehensive and advanced anti-ageing facial, using Murad’s Professional range of products. Your skin is essentially “re-programmed for youthfulness” with their immune cell-stimulating Immuno-Skin Complex, while five high performance exfoliators, hydrators and brighteners rapidly resurface and rehydrate your skin. That’s a lot going on! In reality, it happened very quickly and for a peel, and came with very minimal discomfort. The delicious Vitamin C cleanser that was used to prep my skin probably helped – I definitely have to try that again, it was gorgeous – as well as the minty, Cooling Recovery Mask that was applied immediately afterwards to rehydrate, rebalance and protect my newly bright skin.
And lest I forget, whilst the peel was on an eye mask was also applied that was full of hyaluronic microspheres to plump and hydrate. The info that cam with the facial tells me that this clever formula has been proven to increase skin firmness by up to 75 per cent in just 15 minutes, which is no mean feat! While you will see immediate results after just one treatment, my therapist Taryn recommends a series of three treatments a week apart to really get the best from IP5’s results-driven technology.
Last but not least, I left the clinic completely makeup free but with not an ounce of redness to be seen, and just an hour later my skin was glowing. I’ve heard the phrase flung around many times before, but the ultimate “lunchtime facial” this may be!
The Murad IP5 is exclusive to Caci and costs $175, to book call 0800 458 458 or visit their website here.
