I first visited Wendy Barker at Beauty Progress after a bad experience with a facial from another firm in Christchurch where on two occasions after a facial treatment, I developed a burning and itching sensation on my skin and then flaking skin similar to a burn.

On meeting Wendy and after talking with her I visited her for a facial treatment. It was on my first visit that Wendy diagnosed rosacea on my face and that it needed treatment to bring under control. Due to my previous experience I hesitated to agree to a facial however after discussion with Wendy on her products I agreed to try it again. The treatment was wonderful, I could see an instant improvement in my skin and I had no side effects. I repeated the facial on a monthly basis and after about 3 months my skin had completely cleared up. As well as the facial treatments I use the GERnetic Synchro moisturising day cream and also the Cytobi night cream.

I recommend Wendy and her products to anyone who needs help with a skin problem or just for a “self pampering” treat after which you will feel totally relaxed and like a million dollars.

Last Christmas I received a voucher for Beauty Progress.  This gift turned out to be a blessing.  Upon meeting Wendy I was impressed how friendly she was and how comfortable she made me feel.  We discussed issues I had with my skin, which included breakouts, dehydration and uneven skin tone (my skin looked red and angry).  Wendy explained the GERnetic products she would use during the treatment, which was a most blissful and relaxing experience.  Immediately after the facial I noticed my skin looked less irritated and felt smoother.  Wendy recommended that my skin would benefit from using the products at home.  Less than a week later there was a noticeable improvement, my face no longer looked red and angry, the skin texture felt and looked considerably smoother, and my pores looked smaller.  I now see Wendy every 6 weeks for a facial and it is money well spent.  I could not be happier with the results - no more breakouts, my skin is clearer, healthier and younger looking.  I have not only finally found a product that does everything it claims to, but someone who provides a most relaxing professional service for her clients.  It is truly an appointment I look forward to.

By sheer chance I went to Beauty Progress for a facial.  I have had facials before but none compared to Wendys.  I would have to say that without a doubt, I have never felt as good as I did when I walked out of her rooms.  Because of that I subsequently went back to Wendys for a Therapeutic Massage.  Again, she is second to none.  Wendy is very talented and very knowledgeable about her products.  I would not hesitate to recommend Wendy to anyone.
