Hello all, I hope you had a wonderful summer!
Elizabeth Arden was established in 1910 with the opening of the first iconic Red Door on Fifth Avenue and since then have released a number of much-loved cult products along with brand-new additions, such as the beautiful multi-purpose body oil.
Whilst around town you may have noticed that the Elizabeth Arden beauty counter in Debenhams had a recent makeover, with the addition of a fantastic new Facial Booster Bar offering you an array of facials at excellent prices that will leave you looking fresh, relaxed and glowing. One is the oxygen facial blast which takes 20 minutes; you can book your appointment for during your lunch hour.
If you’re thinking the way I did, you’re probably wondering about your make-up, will you have to reapply afterwards? Fret not, as you can wear makeup during this particular oxygen blast facial! It will detox, lift, brighten, and hydrate your skin and you can also avail of a full skin analysis to tailor it to your skins needs. Skin changes naturally due to age but 80% of damage to skin is caused by environmental aggressors such as UV rays, pollution and smoking so it really is worthwhile getting it checked every so often, so you’re getting the correct products for your actual skin type and get into the habit of a good skincare routine. The team includes counter manager Edel and three consultants who were helpful with their advice and tips, sharing their extensive scientific product knowledge. I like to know what goes into products and the whole scientific side of it.
For example, the Prevage range – which some may think is just for mature skin – is in fact for all age groups with dry, dehydrated skin. Prevention is so important, and this range contains ibedenone, an ingredient that delays and helps prevent the ageing process. Beauty consultant Sinead O’Callaghan-Bolger explained that in training they were shown how an apple cut in two will go brown, but if the ibedenone ingredient is added to the fruit, it protects it from deteriorating in this way. If you wish to book an appointment simply call into the Elizabeth Arden Counter or you can ring 061 460630. They also have a Facebook page which will keep you up to date with offers, competitions and guest makeup events. They are very kindly offering a Limerick Life reader the chance to win a complimentary oxygen blast facial and some goodies!

Until next time,
