The Freshskin range from Elemis is aimed at caring for young skin – late teens to mid-20’s – and you ask: What the hell were you doing there Dani? Very funny, but as I mentioned before, I always suffered from problem skin. From severe acne when younger to breakout bouts to this day, this has always been a touchy subject and the reason I need to be very careful when it comes to skin care.
I will do anything I can to get rid of the blemishes, but making sure my skin is nourished, plump and radiant has been a growing concern in the past years, as the treatments can be quite aggressive. The Clear Skin line, part of their wider freshskin range, targets the problems usually associated with adolescent skin: spots and oiliness, while also caring for the skin.
This range helps to look after those problems on a daily basis. I left with some products and have been using them – review will come soon – but attending their event was really interesting and informative. First, everyone was really lovely. Seriously friendly and chatty!
Upon RSVP, you could choose two treatments from hair, manicure, mini facial and make over. Extremely difficult choice here… After having a really hard think, I went for hair and facial.
On arrival, there was bubbly (again, the best start as far as I am concerned! And that got replenished plenty), cupcakes and lots of conversation going, followed by a brief but comprehensive talk about the range by the gorgeous Emer Gillen from Elemis, who is a therapist and a trainer for the company.
Getting a treat
After that, we headed downstairs for the treatments. I had the mini facial, using products from the line, done by Emer herself! It was refreshing and relaxing. I woke up the next morning with really happy skin, calm, soothed and radiant.
Then I had my hair styled by Freya from Electric hair salon. She gave me amazing waves and volume which survived a night’s sleep and still looked lush the next day. Her advice prompted me to buy a curling wand, which I still have to master!
I also had a chat with the ladies from Myface.cosmetics, which were offering make overs! I was very impressed with their Blingtone eyeshadows, they are very sparkly and highly pigmented.
Manicures were being offered using Essie polishes, which created a dark pink shade named after the Elemis range.
I left with a goody bag containing the skin clear overnight serum, mattifying moisturiser, purifying face wash and the treatment gel, as well as a freshskin discovery kit, a mini-size kit of their line for young skin, nail transfers and an eye shadow duo from Myface cosmetics, which I will use to create my next eye make-up look challenge!
As if the evening wasn’t fun enough, after a few days I received a tweet saying I was their competition winner, and I not only I got a bag full of goodies, but I also got a face and body treatment at the Elemis Spa, which I will be redeeming very soon! Yay!
