It is known that Sarah Champan is a facialist for many A-listers including Hollywood stars, supermodels and Victoria Beckham herself shared that she is the secret to her glow.
I was over the moon to be able to try one of their more express facials which is great solution for those who are looking for a quick fix. If you prefer to get out and have it done in the salon rather than home spa. I may not have had Sarah Chapman herself but I had the honour to be treated by the loveliest facialist Charlotte. Sarah Chapman’s store and salon is just off Sloane Square – Skinesis clinic. The store is so well located and downstairs amongst all the fantastic products you have something called Glow Zone where these shorter period facials are done and you also find more private space with LED light machine.
I opted for Glow Boost + LED therapy and loved every second. Charlotte created comfortable environment, gave me water when I had to fill in health form and then provided cosy blanket for the treatment. The glow boost took 20 minutes and then it was followed by LED therapy. This treatment costs 65 £ and if you decide to try the LED therapy the total is 100 £. The focus is for the client to leave with glowing skin. I can swear the result was exactly what the brand promises. Although I am not a supermodel I decided to show you the picture after the facial without any makeup, filter or retouching.
The facial is very relaxing. We started with cleansing steps and Charlotte suggested 10 % lactic acid peel to help with my texture. It is usually one of the main concerns. My favourite part as always was the massage which Sarah Champan is so famous for. When the facialist gave me sheet mask she did hand massage when the mask was doing it’s magic. And that is always very relaxing and incredible touch.
I can highly recommend this as a quick facial on the go or if you have important occasion and you want to get your skin ready for the big event. It is also fairly priced considering the location and the name of the brand.
I was keen to share with you also the products Charlotte shared specifically during my bespoke facial.
Cherry red or to my eyes also burgundy is definitely a colour of this Autumn. Despite being it such a trend on social media it is quite hard to find pieces that we could wear with pride this season. Cherry red and actually other shades of red took over fashion week and we see more and more of this rich shade everywhere.
The shoes that are on more affordable side are sold out or they have some tiny sizes left and the rest of the shoes and clothes are at higher price point. So hopefully the high-street brands will hear us and deliver more exciting pieces. Do not get me wrong I do love the idea of amazing designer items however I also love to find something for everybody whether you are more of a Zara kind shopper or Khaite.
I wanted to share with you some fantastic pieces if you want to rock this colour right now. I personally love the idea of shoes as it is such a gorgeous touch if you just wear them with jeans and blazer. The Saint Laurent heels in particular are to die for.
However if your budget does not allow you to buy even some lovely scarf or a knit you can still rock this trend. I suggest investing in some lovely lipstick or nail varnish.
Outfits left right and center. We are in October and the weather is still so pleasant in London. Well, this Saturday we are expecting to have summer back as the prediction is showing 25 degrees which is mind blowing. However, you know as an autumn lover I just love fashion of layers and textures which autumn is all about.
Here is my weekly round up of my favourite fashion inspiration from Instagram. These ladies are one of my favourite to follow and as always they are serving some incredible looks. It is only few weeks ago when I published my own inspiration article which you can catch up on.
You know I always tone down when it comes to colder months. I wear less colourful items and really fall in to the neutral tones palette. However, I am really loving the red trend. I do not think red particularly suits me but the full red look from Claire is to die for. I love the cut and the textures of the whole styling.
Elsa as always is our cool girl and I mean not many people can pull that off however we can just take some aspects of the styling and make it our own. And I am in love with the texture combination of Laura’s look.
So who else is running to their closet to pick what to wear today. These outfits gave me lots of ideas.
As somebody that dealt years and years with sever acne… blackheads are very familiar to me. However, you do not need to have acne issues as blackheads are a common thing for so many of us. They are simply clogged follicles mainly with excess oil and dead skin.
It sounds not particularly appealing however that is the cycle of our skin and we constantly have to think of cleansing and also removing the dead skin cells on a regular basis. A good news is they are harmless and sometimes they just look worse than they are.
Even as a teenager I was having regular facials so I am pretty used to having manual extraction but there are so many things you can do from comfort of you home. And you can minimise the amount of blackheads. I am sure if you are on Tiktok you came across some of those viral videos and couldn’t stop watching some sort of tool used for blackhead removal. I am still not sure if I find these videos satisfying or just gross.
Ok so what can we do to prevent them and deal with them less and less. I loved this tool which I also gave my sister as a present but as with anything you need to be consistent and keep up with your tailored skincare routine. You can browse my BLACKHEADS HEROS EDIT.
From experience if you decide for extraction at home it is always good to open your pores. If you prefer actual product that does that you can go down that route or opt for traditional steaming. These machines are very convenient or simply use hot water in a bowl.
However, you can achieve a lot with skincare. The key is to keep avoiding the build up on your skin so using specific cleansers and exfoliating will do lot of work for you.
