My name is Clare Potts and I'm a Selfridges Beauty Hall addict. It is my guilty pleasure, even when I'm on a spending ban, everything else goes but Selfridges Beauty Hall stays!
This month has been no different, I've finally invested in the legendary Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation as well as sampling new beauty treatments so I thought I'd share my new favourite things from my yellow bag with you.
Double Wear is a foundation that I've heard so much about from other bloggers (thanks for the tip Hannah!), but never got round to trying out but with an all day wedding coming up and my current foundation just not cutting it anymore, I thought it was time to invest in a long lasting foundation.
I got colour matched and took home a bottle of Double Wear in Ecru which is a perfect match for my skin! I didn't realise quite how bad my previous foundation was until I tried out Double Wear, it instantly covered up all my blemishes, dark circles and redness, I was a convert. I've been wearing it along with Clinique All About Eyes Concealer this week and it can even withstand a 12 hour stint in the office under air conditioning, that's pretty impressive.
The Man has been juicing recently which I was totally against at the beginning but after seeing the results, I couldn't really argue with it as much as I want to seeing as food is my favourite. I'm not quite ready to be 24/7 hangry just yet but I've been trying out the Beauty and Go drinks that work from the inside out to detoxify and boost your skin's natural radiance. The range is exclusively available at Selfridges, I definitely need to try more to see the results but they taste yummy!
Last week I was invited to the Suqqu counter at Selfridges to try out their famous Gankin facial massage, after a long week of work it sounded like the ideal way to relax! I hadn't done much research on the massage before I went but Natalie explained the process before she got started and I'm very glad she did because it wasn't what I was expecting! Facials I've had in the past have been soft and gentle, focusing on the cleansing and moisturising of the skin but the Gankin massage was something SO different! It's an incredibly firm facial massage that tightens pores, increases blood flow, improves sagging of skin and makes a visible difference instantly. Afterwards, my skin looked brighter, firmer and glowing after just 3 minutes, kind of a mini facelift!
I also accidentally picked up a Bobbi Brown blusher and brush while I was there, I'm not entirely sure how it happened, I have a problem...
