Last week I was lucky enough to get invited to the Fenwick Beauty Week launch in Newcastle. A bunch of lovely NE Bloggers met at Mason + Rye in the food hall to be introduced to the Beauty Buyer Grace Ruthven and get a sneak peak of what some of the beauty houses Fenwick hosts were going to be getting involved with over their upcoming Beauty Week. And boy was there a great selection. A lot of the places were limited, but really there was no bad choice to be made – each counter was offering something fabulous, from demonstrations to make overs, manicures, perfume sampling and more. I managed to bag myself a facial from Sisley and a manicure from Nails Inc. I was one happy bunny!
A Facial From Sisley
After indulging in a glass of bubbly and a gorgeous sparkly macaroon I headed over to the Sisley counter where I met my beauty therapist for the facial. I did wonder whether I’d be sat at the counter for the treatment, but actually I whisked through some white double doors into a secret treatment room Fenwick has just off the beauty hall. I didn’t even know it existed!
Inside there was a lovely calming treatment room, away from the hustle and bustle and bright lights of the beauty hall. I was treated to a beautiful facial from Sisley that used such an incredible range of products. My skin felt fantastic afterwards and even though I was a bit paranoid I wasn’t wearing any make up at a beauty event, a couple of people commented on how glowing my skin was looking!
Best of all, I got a wonderful goodie bag full of sample size versions of the products that had been used on my face. Can’t wait to give myself another facial – although I’m sure I won’t be half as good as it as my therapist was! Who, by the way, had absolutely FANTASTIC skin.
Nails Inc Manicure
After my facial I headed to the Nails Inc counter to get my nails spruced up. They’ve been feeling a bit weak since I had gels on a month or so ago, so I was pleased the lovely ladies used the kale strengthening base coat before putting on a couple of coats of the gorgeous Uptown shade. I am absolutely obsessed with this dusky pink at the moment!
