pampering? Then I spotted a Wowcher deal for a Clarins Pampering Package at House
of Frazer in Manchester for the bargenous price of £8. Well, rude
not to at that price, right? 🙂
(I can’t lie, it was the goodie back which swung it). The experience
itself was so relaxed and I loved discussing some new ideas for makeup.
My assistant was called Emily and she was so friendly and knowledgeable. I liked how she talked me through every step and told me everything she was using.
I have oily/combined skin. So, I really hate products that add to the oil, but I like to feel like I’m looking after and replenishing the moisture in my skin. Especially, as it is summertime and I have spent a bit of time in the sun lately (obviously, only with factor 30 on, or I would look like a lobster!).
I asked Emily to pick the makeup look, as I feel I need a bit of inspiration at the moment. She used a brown/nude eye shadow and I would never go for brown! It is such a nice natural look. Most of all, I am really so impressed by the mascara. I feel like I’m cheating on my beloved Maybelline (The Falsies), but I think I might be loving Clarins more!
I have been trying to grow out my eyebrows (sorry they look so tatty – is anyone else at that stage?), So I liked her tips about applying brow liner and using the brow brush. Total novice territory here!
So a quick round up of what was used on my face…
Facial products used:
Water Purify One-Step Cleanser
Gentle Exfoliating Brightening Toner
Pore Minimizin Serum
HydraQuench Tinted Moisturiser in the shade 01
Instant Definition Mascara
In the goodie bag (tailored to skin type):
Double Serum Age Control Concentrate – tiny sample
Pure and Radiant Mask – 5ml
Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream – 5ml
Hydra-Matte Lotion – 5ml
Instant Definition Mascara – mini sample
Basil seeds. Now, the geek in me loves this! I can’t wait to grow the seeds and desperately try not to kill them!
The experience itself was great fun. Overall, though I think this was maybe a bit overpriced for £8 as many department stores/chains will do makeovers for free and you can ask Clarins for sample products for free.
*I paid for the experience out of my own money and I was not paid to review the deal.
Or any recommendations for similar packages?
