Caroline: Oh my God.

Caroline: Today I’m going to Olga Lorencin’s Skin Care Clinic in LA to try her Red Carpet Facial that’s a favorite among celebrities like Halle Berry, Sofia Vergara, Eva Mendes. And this treatment claims to give you immediate glowy results. So I’m curious to see, is this treatment better than any of the other facials I’ve had and how immediate are these results before a big event? So let’s go find out. Hi! Oh my god.

Olga Lorencin: How are you?

Caroline: Good, good.

Olga: How are you doing?

Caroline: I’m good. I’m so excited!

Olga: It looks like you’re ready for your facial.

Caroline: I am.

Olga: What I’m doing right now is just cleaning. And I’m using rehydrating cleanser, which is super mild, but will also clean really deep. I’m just gonna clean the skin and we’re gonna go straight into a little massage. Because your skin is a little bit congested, we’re going to use combination of seaweed and aloe, with just a little bit of marula oil. So in a massage there’s no reason to have any active ingredients, I like to keep it really simple. And then as we go move forward you will see that the peel, and exfoliants, and anti-aging ingredients are all clinical grade. So when you’re talking about clinical ingredients and more of a clinical brands the results are very different than, what I call it, a “steam and cream” kind of facial. Which is just like, “massage me, and give me a little steam, and I go home,” no. I’m talking about complete transformation of your skin. Now unfortunately, you will go through a little bit of pain.

Olga: She’s like, what?

Caroline: Pain?

Olga: Yes. So now we’re going to do the Red Carpet Peel. And this is what we’re so famous for. So the peel is consist of lactic acid, and malic, and a little bit of glycolic. It’s a special formulation, it’s proprietary only to us, clearly. And this goes first on your face, for about minute or two. And then I will neutralize it with baking soda and green tea. And the chemical reaction between peel and a neutralizer in this particular peel creates something called steam cleaning your pores.

Caroline: Oh. Olga: It’s pretty amazing. Caroline: I will say the pain went up to a three and you didn’t put anything on yet.

Olga: But now it will probably go up to 10.

Caroline: Oh.

Olga: But just for a minute.

Caroline: Okay, okay, I’m ready, I’m ready.

Olga: Are we ready?

Caroline: Oh my god! Oh!

Olga: Just hang in there.

Caroline: Oh my god! This burns,…
