Couple months back, i got an email offering me to experiencing “Heart of the Ocean” facial treatment by THALGO Indonesia at Sogo Pakuwon Mall Surabaya. I honestly felt so eager as I have never heard about this brand before. Then after dealing with the schedule, i immediately dived in to internet to find out more about THALGO as in where does it come from, reviews, and all about the products.
For your information, THALGO is originally from France and was created by a pharmacist named Andre Bouclet from his passion for the marinee world. At the leading edge of Marine Research, André Bouclet made a major discovery in the world of marine skincare and developed a unique and patented ALGAE MICRONISATION process. Until today, THALGO is considered a pioneer in Thalassotherapy, and the World Leader in Professional Marine Cosmetics.
According to the appointment with Vicka (THALGO’s PR) , i made my way to Sogo Pakuwon Mall last Friday (08/25) and arrived 30 minutes late due to the cray crayyy traffic jam. Arriving at the counter, i was greeted by the beautician who then took me to a room where the facial is going to be done. At the private room, I finally met the team who are super humble that made me instantly feel so comfortable. After a little chitchat and products knowledge explanation, the signature “Heart of the Ocean” facial began.
The beautician sprayed my face with Thalgo Reviving Marine Mist. This particular product has 2 active ingredients that consist of :
– Sève Bleue from the Oceans
– Complex of 27 multi-revitalizing nutrients (8 minerals and trace elements, 18 amino acids and gluconate)
This face mist is aiming to bring balance and energy to our skin to fight the effect of modern life more effectively. Also increases the effectiveness of skincare creams applied afterwards. The scent is really refreshing, it smells like a fresh flower.
While waiting the mist is fully absorbed,the beautician also did a vvvvery relaxing massage. Itfelt so good especially for a full-time mom like me, it’s so rare to have a proper face massaging like this ehe.
After spraying my face, the beautician started cleaning my face (also my brows lol) with Thalgo Express Make-up Remover. This product is a bi-phase lotion, with Sève Bleue from the Oceans, that thoroughly removes all make-up, even waterproof, from the eyes and lips in a single step. Scent free and surfactant free. It also has Active Ingredients:
– Sève Bleue from the Oceans – hydrates skin, delivers immediate comfort
– Provitamin B5 – repairs, strengthens and coats lashes to encourage their growth.
Next step after my face is totally clean from makeups is Pure Velvet Cleansing Cream. I reckoned it’s the exclusive version of Milk Cleanser ehe. It is aiming for anyone looking for comforting cleansing care tailored to their mature skin. Freed from all of its impurities the skin is supple, fresh, soft and ready to receive a specific skin care product. It has an ultra-rich and creamy texture with a powdery floral scent of rose/peony heart note, lotus/ylang-ylang top note. pH 5.8
– Gelidium Sequipedale Extract – hydrates; leaves the skin supple; softens and tones; revitalizes
– Mango – regenerates; anti-free radical
Now It’s scrubbing time with Thalgo Melt-In Scrub with Marine Crystal. It’s a triple action facial exfoliator Provides enzymatic peel & mechanical exfoliation & in-depth-cleaning Rich in hypoallergenic papaya extract & salt crystals & almond shell powder Helps remove dead cells & refine skin texture Contains biopolymer of plant origin to dissolve lipids that clog pores.
– Stabilised papaya extract hypoallergenic
– Diatomaceous earth almond shell powder
– Marine Cristals biodegradable
– Exfoliating particles and lactic acid polymer
As you might see above, the scrub texture is gel-like and clear. The scrub particles is rather small so it wont hurt at all eventhough you have sensitive skin.
After the scrub thingy was done, we’re moving on to applying Hydra Marine Serum. It’s the first universal radiance serum by THALGO that targets the loss of luminosity at its source. This incredibly fresh, melt-in gel helps reactivate the skin’s natural detoxification process to deliver pure radiance and the original luminosity of the complexion.
– Hydra-diffusine (exopolysaccharide) – stimulates the aquaporins to facilitate the diffusion of dermal water to the layers of the epidermis
– Hyalurophyline (plant oligosaccharides extracts) – creates water reserves thanks to the synthesis of epidermal hyaluronic acid, a true natural sponge
– Sève Bleue from the ocean – drenches the epidermis in mineral-replenishing vital water, restores the barrier function of the epidermis
– Lumisource (extract of Candida Saitoana) – boosts the natural detoxification process of the cells
– Thermus thermophillus – stops the reaction cascade of oxidation of cell proteins
The greatest step of all ! aha. It’s the step when the beautician started massaging my body. It’s heavenly good as the beautician did it really profesionally. The massage won’t be going well without a good product that’s for sure, the beautician used Thalgo Oligo- Massage Cream. It’s a marine-based massage facial cream Features an ultra-soft, comfortable texture Formulated with sea water to re-mineralize & hydrate skin Contains macadamia nut oil & raspberry seed oil to condition skin Unveils a softer, smoother, relaxed & revitalized complexion.
– Seve blue des Oceans
– Macadamia nut oil
– Raspberry seed oil
After the massaging step was done, it’s mask time! They’re using Ultra Hydra Marine Mask on me. An instant replumping effect, smoothes and rehydrates in just 5 minutes. Containing 2 Hyaluronic Acids and Sève Bleue des Océans to offer your skin immediate hydration and an incredible plumping result.
Active ingredients :
Contains molecules able to immediately hold water reserves.
-High molecular Hyaluronic Acid : acts on the surface for an instant plumping effect.
The beautician started mixing the mask substitute with water and it became so thick and pastel purple-colored. Once it touched my skin, it felt cool on my face. I gotta wait for about 10 minutes until the mask dried and the beautician peeled it off. It’s crazy how the result is instant that i felt my face is so hydrating and plumpy at the same time. IT’S REALLY GOOD!
After the mask is fully peeled off and made sure it’s all clean, the beautician gave me Thalgo Collagen Eye Roll-On. It claims to reduce puffiness and dark circles. Concentrated in Marine Collagen, it smooths fine lines and wrinkles, and instantly awakens and brightens the eyes. This concentrate combines the performance of a “cool effect” triple ball roll-on with a continuous 24-hour caffeine action Micropatch® technology. It is a fresh gel with a fresh, powdery floral scent that relaxes the eyes.
– Native Marine Collagen
– Caffeine Micropatch
Finally the last step. After the Collagen Eye Roll-On, the beautician applied Hydra Marine 24 H Cream on my face. It claims to be the first beautifying moisturiser that so perfectly combines effectiveness and sensoriality that 100% of women were won over! Essential to provide your skin with 24 hour hydration while infusing it with new, perfect radiance. Its luxurious and rich texture gives the skin a velvety feel, with a light fragrance of tea and white flowers.
And it’s all done!
