We can't think of anything more vital to a healthy pre-wedding skincare regime than to kick it off with a one-to-one personal consultation with a trained pro. Once your skin issues have been recognised and assessed, you can then go forth to fix your flaws and maintain a good complexion confidently without doubting your future product purchases.
So we were thrilled to hear about a new pop-up facial clinic opening next week that offers a chance to meet a skincare expert and get a personalised facial absolutely free.
Olay's three-day-only professional dermatology clinic opens its doors on June 28, June 29 and July 1 in Mayfair, London. There will be appointments running from 10am-5pm each day, where you will get to meet a top UK dermatologist and chat about your skin, then have an anti-ageing facial exclusively designed and performed by the incredible facialist Anastasia Achilleos (a Brides' office favourite!).
It's all to celebrate the launch of their newest product Olay Professional, (pictured), that's apparently a huge success across the pond and arrives on these shores on August 9 in Boots, priced at £44.99. It's a brilliant kit that includes a daytime SPF moisturiser, a richer night-time cream and a targeting wrinkle cream to massage into prominent creases. Anastasia will be using the products in her facials so it's a perfect opportunity to try before you buy.
We're also excited to see the temporary clinic, which apparently has a hot-from-NYC look and feel.
What with this tricksy trans-seasonal weather confusing our pores, it's the ideal time to have a skincare overhaul, especially with a luxury high street brand like Olay, that's affordable before and after the wedding.
Placed are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first served basis. To book, call the Olay Professional Clinic booking hotline on tel: 0207 611 3770 to register your details (name, day and evening contact telephone numbers and e-mail address). Applicants must be aged 18 years and over. Standard call rates reply. Lines close at 3pm on Friday June 24 2011.
The Olay Professional Clinic will be open to the public for three days only (June 28-29 and July 1 2011) at an exclusive Mayfair location - 18 Maddox Street, Mayfair, London W1 from 10am-5pm.
