Elemis is a brand that I know of through getting luxury facials on a spa day and that is about the only time I’ve ever used this brand. So, I was really excited when the opportunity came up to head to the Beauty Bazaar Spa in Liverpool to receive an Elemis facial. My skin was in total need of TLC, I had been ill for weeks and the cold I was suffering with had just ruined the skin round my nose & given me major tired eyes, I was totally sleep walking through the whole day and 100% thought I would fall asleep throughout the facial and miss it all.
Yep, that’s me, totally on cloud 9!
Thankfully, Lyndsey from Elemis worked her magic and I felt really revitalised and refreshed when I left the store. I am not exaggerating when I say this, I wish I had taken before and after pictures because my husband was actually worried that I was going to collapse from tiredness before I went in, and when I came out he said I looked like a different person.
First off, an Elemis facial at the Beauty Bazaar is £30 for 30 minutes, this isn’t redeemable at the counter on the products, but don’t worry as you totally get your value for money as it includes so much, (stick with me till the end of the post as there is a treat for you regarding the cost of a facial).
The first part of the facial takes place at the Elemis counter & is the skin analysis at the Skin Lab. I loved this part as I had never had a skin analysis before. You have a picture taken of your face and it analyses 6 main aspects of your skin and highlights which areas may be your problem areas. These 6 areas are, the surface of your skin, the texture, sensitive areas, any sun exposure, your pores, any fine lines & wrinkles and any areas of dehydration.
You get to choose based on this analysis what facial you would like, I wanted one that focused on minimizing my pores and hydrated my skin, plus made me look a little more awake. I had the Skin Radiance facial, which rejuvenates and re-energises the skin, it is designed to restore skin radiance to tired skin and it did just that.
The other types of facials you can get are –
Pro-Intense Lift Effect – Lift, Shape and Firm Slackened Skin.
Pro-Collagen Quartz Lift – Specialised anti-ageing massage.
Dynamic Resurfacing – unique treatment targeting blemishes, uneven skin tone, superficial facial scarring and fine lines, revealing younger-looking skin.
White Brightening Facial – Illuminates complexion. Reduces age spots, discolouration and dull skin tone.
Revive and Refresh – Recharge tired and stressed skin with this deep cleansing facial.
Modern Skin – Restore a healthy glow to your skin by removing damaging toxins.
Time for Men – Designed with men in mind, tailored to combat signs of a hectic lifestyle.
Now as well as having the 30-minute facial in the blissfully relaxing room, the chair that you sit in is a massage chair. Now this isn’t a feeble massage chair like in the airport, it actually works and targets the problem areas in your back, it scans your body a few times and then uses different pressures to target your most knotted areas. I don’t know how this technology worked so well but it picked up the knots in my shoulders that really needed work on, and it works all the way down to your legs. It was amazing.
So for £30 you get 3 aspects to your facial – skin analysis, the facial and the massage chair. Bargain.
I actually brought some Elemis products home with me in the stunning Misha Nonoo toiletry bag. I have been giving myself an Elemis facial at home with these products and my skin has taken to them really well. I’m starting to notice improvements in my skin at a really fast rate. I wear make up almost every day & try to have a make up free day every now and then, but this obviously can make my skin suffer, but since using Elemis repeatedly I have noticed a more even skin texture, a brighter complexion when I’m not wearing make up and a much smoother feel and less dry skin.
The products I am loving the most are the Gentle Foaming Facial Wash and the Papaya Enzyme Peel mask. The facial wash I have been using of an evening along side my Garnier Face wash (which can be used on your eyes and the Elemis one you can’t). This facial wash is so refreshing and removes make up and cleanses very well. About twice a week I use the Enzyme Peel, you apply it like a cream moisturiser to your face and leave it for 10-12 minutes to set. It sets with a white finish and you can feel it slightly tightening on your skin. My face after using this is so smooth and fresh and if you follow it up with the Pro Collagen Cream throughout the night then your skin will be rejoicing in the morning.
Now guys, I did say I had a treat for you, if you go for a facial with Elemis at the Beauty Bazaar in Liverpool One, then quote to Lyndsey you came off my recommendation, that way if you book in for a 2nd facial you will get it for half price! The fabulous 3 part facial for £15. How good is that! (3rd facial and so on will return to full price).
If you do book in, then let me know, I really hope you enjoy it. Have any of you used Elemis products before? Do you have a favourite product?
