Treatment of the week
Some people can’t always make it to the clinic, things get in the way such as the school run, working meetings and running errands. So why not take the clinic to your home? This great product called the Mycrolator by Black et Blanc has the luxury of a micro-needle facial in the comfort of your home. It only takes ten minutes and this little night time treatment tackles blemishes and signs of ageing quickly! The Mycrolator is used like a cotton pad and creates micro pockets in the skin, then natural filtered oils are applied and repairs itself overnight.

Makeup wipes are seen as a quick fix, they’re easy to use and great when you’re travelling around. It’s the ‘lazy people’s’ way after a tiring, long day. Face wipes lead to extreme dryness of the skin because face wipes don’t contain moisturiser in them, they’re also soaked in harmful chemicals such as Dipropylene Glycol and Propylene Glycol which are irritants.
You don’t need to feel guilty using face wipes anymore! Murad’s Clarifying Wipes are great to use, they are packed with high performance skincare ingredients so you can wipe away guilt free. These wipes treat, repair and protect the skin and offer a quick, simple solution to cleanse and refresh skin.

Nude’s Cellular renewal moisturiser is a clinically advanced moisturiser and acts at the heart of the skin to help correct all the visible signs of ageing. NUDE’s pioneering n-probiotic is partnered with cellular renewal ingredients to help skin resist damage and revitalize the skin’s own collagen and hyaluronic acid.
You only need the tiniest amount on each part of the face. Felt very light once applied, leaves a luminous smooth finish with a slight residue. My face still felt smooth after 24 hours of wearing the moisturiser. Makeup can be applied very nicely over the top and can be used as a primer.
Sheer Cover Studio is a high performance mineral makeup with an exclusive patented formula designed to adapt with light which givs the wearer a perfect colour match. People always say that wearing makeup clogs pores and causes more spots, products such as Sheer Cover don’t clog the pores thanks to the soothing botanicals and light-reflecting minerals. It also contains a natural SPF for the ultimate in complexion protection, no oils, perfumes, dyes or talc so it doesn’t ‘cake’ the skin.
