The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift!

This Sunday, May 10, is Mother's Day so I’ve been thinking about what would really make a great Mother’s Day gift. What should it be this year, apparel or lingerie, jewelry or perfume, perhaps a travel accessory, or the usual flowers and chocolate? Well my pick for Mother's Day this year, and mom will definitely like this one, is an invigorating facial at Argyle Salon & Spa.

Mother’s Day Gift Idea, an Invigorating Facial

Argyle is an amazing spa located downstairs at the beautiful Sunset Towers hotel, on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. They recently partnered up with to offer a invigorating facial utilizing the exclusive technology behind H-Secrets' Hollywood Secrets Five-Minute Eye Transformation, in a relaxing and rejuvenating spa treatment. This has been a best-kept secret of Hollywood's top celebrity makeup artists and cosmetic surgeons and I was invited to personally try out Argyle’s HollywoodSecrets facial which I did back in March, 2009. I have to tell you that it was nothing short of amazing and I had to tweet about it.

Argyle’s HollywoodSecrets Facial is the premiere red carpet facial designed to visibly refresh, tone, hydrate, and lift skin to new skin-perfecting heights.  Both relaxing and rejuvenating, this facial will impart a luminous glow, while allowing skin to appear lifted and toned. Utilizing exclusive, concentrated, and powerful natural and active ingredients, the HollywoodSecrets facial is designed to leave skin red carpet ready in under an hour. It provides immediate results and lasts longer than a trip down the red carpet and well into the after-party. The product used is like a laser, Botox, scalpel and 8 hours rest in a Q-tip style applicator.

Treatment - "Hollywood Secrets Facial" which was absolutely incredible. Mom will have to plan a special night out after this amazing treatment. My skin felt amazing and glowed like never before.

Value - at $140 this facial is great value and will make mom feel really special.

Thoughts – Mom will thoroughly enjoy this relaxing facial treatment; the clarisonic cleanse, steam, seaweed mask and Osea products will all feel amazing. Jaclyn, the Esthetician I had was the best I've ever had, she really was wonderful; extremely informative and friendly, not the usual hard sales woman when your facial is over and time to earn commissions from after service product sales. In fact the name Hollywood Secrets Facial instantly evokes feelings of superficial plastic fantasticness whereas Argyle felt very private and relaxing which is a nice change from all the Hollywood hoo ha.

Will mom enjoy it? - Absolutely and without doubt! It’s a combination of a great facial treatment, lovely venue and friendly staff.

Service – Fantastic!

OK, now let me tell you a little more about the product underlying Argyle’s HollywoodSecrets facial.

What the Experts Say!

Here’s what the experts say about HollywoodSecrets Five-Minute Eye Transformation:

  • Celebrity makeup artist Natalie Miller says that “within 5 minutes your skin looks more beautiful, your wrinkles disappear and you can apply makeup on it right away.”
  • Dermatologist Dr. Brian Keller, “(Qusomes™) deliver ingredients into the lower layers where we get better biological effect, it improves the health of the skin from elasticity to barrier function to the health of the cells.”
  • Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Jerry Vener of Los Angeles says, “This product allows me to continue the care of patients skin after they’ve had surgery - It allows promotion of healing.”

The product's active ingredient is Argireline – An Anti-Aging Peptide.

It reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead and around the eyes. Additionally, it prevents skin aging induced by repeated facial movements caused by excessive catecholamine release.

How it Works

The patented QuSome technology contained in every HollywoodSecrets applicator is the ultimate delivery system that allows deep penetration of the essential ingredients and nutrients to the active, lower layers of the skin. QuSomes allow active ingredients to release and penetrate almost twice as fast as traditional liposome delivery. Additionally, products that utilize QuSome technology allow for greater concentration, residence time and protection of the active ingredient, ultimately providing longer activity.

The Results – Instant Face Lift!

Simply amazing!

  • An immediate tightening effect and diminishing of wrinkles around the eye area.
  • An overall regenerative and restorative effect on the skin’s surface.
  • Reduces the severity of wrinkles around the eyes, up to 17% after 15 days of treatment and up to 27% after 30 days of treatment.
  • Dramatically reduces puffiness and results last over 8 hours.

Hollywood Secrets | Eye Transformation Because it literally transforms the area around your eyes in just five minutes, it’s used in the limo just before hitting the red carpet. Professional make up artists use it to get models and stars looking their best for photo shoots and interviews. It’s kept at the cosmetic surgeon’s office to take the edge off, and passed around from purse to purse among Hollywood insiders. The HollywoodSecrets Five-Minute Eye Transformation is the ultimate beauty insider and best-kept secret in Hollywood.

How to Use It

Oh it’s easy! Just snap the tip of the cotton swab applicator and allow the product to saturate the tip. Once the tip is saturated, you dab the surrounding eye area and allow for the product to seep in. You can use the product daily for long lasting results or apply for immediate results as needed. HollywoodSecrets can be used as a primer before makeup or over makeup for instant touch-ups.

How much does it Cost?

The HollywoodSecrets Five-Minute Eye Transformation costs $89.95, a lot cheaper and much less painful than injections or laser procedures. The single serve treatments come in a Q-Tip style applicator that is easily thrown into the smallest of clutches for quick touch-ups.
