Dermaplaning facial and Trinny Make up

When I decided I needed a facial my lovely beautician friend suggested a Dermaplaning. She’s so good at what she does I trust her suggestions, so although I’m a wimp I said yes.

What is dermaplaning?

It’s a skin care treatment that removes the dead skin cells and the peach like fuzz on your face. It’s done using a small sterile scalpel while holding the skin taut, and is absolutely painless. In fact I found the gentle scraping movements very relaxing.

Removing the fine fuzzy hair can be beneficial as the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look.  After the treatment I saw an instant improvement in skin texture and tone. This treatment is used on all skin types and ages.

My Beautician told me skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently after this treatment. They can penetrate the skin more easily, makeup goes on smoother too.

Dermaplaning costs average around £45 and will finish with a cooling hyaluronic face mask included.

This leads me on to my next purchase, Trinny London Make-up

Trinny London make up

I’ve been looking at the Trinny range for a while, I’d matched up my colour on the Match2Me scale but I wasn’t really sure what products I would use.

I don’t love wearing make up so I wanted to keep it simple, I decided to try the BFF cream, it cost £35 and this is what the website says…


The cream is white and goes on clear and flipping heck it’s fab, it must be the light reflection or something. You can wear it on it’s own so you don’t need to buy all of the make-up range. It’s definitely given me a boost of confidence as its so easy to use.

I chose the lightest colour. My hair is grey now although I’ve always been the palest colour on any make up charts. Even in the 80’s when everyone wore Elizabeth Arden Toasty Beige!

I also bought Miracle Blur which has great reviews but I didn’t find it easy to use. It works on the fine lines, wrinkles and pores,  filling them in and blurring them out. You can wear this over the BFF cream, I think I didn’t use it properly, I need to give it another try.

Overall I’d recommend dermaplaning and Trinny make up, both feel really lovely. I’ll be having dermaplaning again and hopefully I will be better at applying the miracle blur by then.

  • I love the sound of Miracle Blur. I don’t wear a lot of make-up – I work from home so unless I’m going out I don’t bother. Most of the time I’ll go with a tinted moisturiser or BB cream so the BFF cream sounds ideal. #MLSTL

    • Joanne i’m the same, never usually wear make up except for tinted moisturiser. I have no idea how the BFF works as it’s a white cream but it feels lovely and I think it reacts on the face to produce a glow.

  • Hi Lorraine – I’ve tried the blurring type cream and didn’t really notice any difference either. Nice to see you trying new products and sharing them with your readers.
    Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL (but please check that you meet the guidelines of “lifestyle” posts before linking next time) I’ve shared on my SM 🙂

  • Oh, I like the idea of dermaplaning. My skin definitely needs some work. I feel really old and frumpy at the moment (am only 51 so know I shouldn’t feel that bad) but I think part of it is my skin is very lacklustre and I’m at that ‘in between’ stage with my hair!

    Interestingly I was about to write that ‘it doesn’t really matter as I’m the only one who has to put up with my frumpy appearance’ but realise that’s actually not a good thing and perhaps I need to take a bit more pride in my appearance! Eek!

    • Deborah, I understand how you feel, I never wear make up so the dermaplaning gave my skin a boost and the BFF cream just brightened my skin and it did me the world of good. ps… I’ve been at the in-between stage with my hair, you’ll get there. x

  • Hi Lorraine I’ve been wanting to try dermaplaning so after reading your post I might make an appointment. I also like the idea of the BFF cream, although I’ve tried BB creams and they don’t really give me the coverage I like. Thanks for taking on board Leanne’s comments re the guidelines and hope you understand where we are coming from with the #MLSTL link up. Have a great week and I will let you know if I make the dermaplaning appointment. We have a beautician in the building we live in so I might check if she does it.
