I was lucky enough to be invited along to the Clarins Skin Spa at John Lewis, Solihull yesterday for a morning of pampering. It's not very often I get the chance to relax & unwind, whilst someone preens & pampers me, so I literally jumped for joy when I got the email inviting me along! I've been using Clarins products for a good 12 years now thanks to my beautiful Mama introducing me to them at a young age... I literally swear by their 'Self Tanning Instant Gel' - it's my holiest of holy-grail products!

My morning started with a consultation with the lovely Nicola, to find out about my current skin care routine and to decide which treatment I would benefit from the most. After explaining that I don't have any major skin issues, I just find my skin can look a little bit tired, dull & dehydrated, we decided to go for 'The Radiance Reviver' to detoxify and recharge. I was then taken to the treatment room for an hour & 25 minutes of pure bliss!! ...and was even treated to a much needed back, neck & shoulder massage - ahhh heaven! 

As I've recently moved to London and have been reading up on how bad urban pollution can be for your skin, Nicola decided to incorporate their 'UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection SPF 40' into my facial, which defends against the elements with a patented anti-pollution complex. We also opted for the 'Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream With Microbeads' to remove dull, flaky surface cells whilst tightening pores ...and last but not least we went for the 'Multi-Active Skin Renewal Serum' to boost radiance & help combat early signs of ageing. 

I left the treatment room feeling completely & utterly rejuvenated! My skin looks and feels AMAZING!! ...and I finally have that dewy glow I've always wanted - woop woop!

If you're after a bit of 'you time', fancy a pamper sesh or your skin is in need of some TLC; I urge you to head down to your local Clarins Skin Spa & book in ASAP! I literally can't recommend it enough... I just wish I could turn the clock back and do it all again!
