Amazing ESPA Skincare

I know this post is a long time coming really because the products I'm raving about were things I was given at the Leeds May Meet way back May.

But when it comes to my limited (my very limited) experience of expensive skincare products, I think you need a while to test everything out at thoroughly as possible.

So that's what I've been doing.

Playing about with expensive stuff.

And the "stuff" in question is the fabulous Radiance Collection by ESPA.

Now, as is probably obvious, ESPA were conventionally a spa-only brand, who grew and developed so much so that they began to create their own products to ensure they had the best quality things to offer.

Before the meet in May, I had never heard of the brand, but the ESPA ladies who attended were so lovely - really friendly, eager to chat and very informative.

They explained how each product worked, why it was needed and then gave a step-by-step "How To" breakdown to make sure each product was used as efficiently as possible.

I think the aspect of our little skincare talk that surprised many of us the most was that fact that it is best to use an oil or a serum on the face and then apply a moisturiser as well.

The majority of us it would seem thought that using a serum or a moisturiser was sufficient.

You learn something new everyday.

I couldn't wait to get started on all the goodies, and as soon as I was home I pulled out the amazing, rich smelling bath foam we were given and enjoyed an expensive soak on the tub.

Treat this stuff like gold dust - it's really quite expensive (£18 a bottle expensive!) and you won't want it to run out - ever.

Infused with bergamot, jasmine and cedarwood, it is the perfect antidote after a long, hard day at work.

As far as skincare goes, I waited a while before I delved into the collection, but after the first use I was so amazed with how my skin looked I wish I'd opened everything a lot sooner.

Now the Radiance Collection contained four mini testers to give a real feel of what the products were capable of.

The Refining Skin Polisher is just brilliant.

Gently massaged into the skin, it has a slightly gritty formula which feels as though it is getting rid of everything that shouldn't be on my face - all of the nasties.

It's really amazing.

I followed this up with a few drops of warmed-in-the-hands treatment oil and, after listening to the ESPA ladies, I inhaled the lovely, calming scent before gently blotting it, almost pushing it, into my face and neck area.

Trust me - it is wonderful...the scent is very luxurious and "spa-like" feels like such a treat to be using it.

Then to finish, I massaged a little moisturiser over all of this and then in the morning my face feels really "new" - all fresh, plumped, soft and hydrated.

Plus - I'm thinking it is because of the serum treating the skin underneath my top layer of skin - all of my spots have almost vanished and my face is in fantastic condition.

No complaints from me on this one.

And if all of that wasn't enough, I also received a teeny box of Optimal Skin ProSerum which is just phenomenal.

And it comes with it's own little pipette - I mean how cute is that!

This product only comes out on special occasions when I really feel like giving my face a real treat.

Oh ESPA - I do love you.

My bank account will hate me for loving you, but I just can't help it...
