Review – Antonia Burrell London Skincare

No comments

Antonia Burrell is one of the UK’s best-loved skincare experts. A favourite with beauty editors who rely upon her Natural Face Lift Facial, she is a BABTAC-accredited practitioner, and an Associate Lecturer in the Chemistry of Aromatherapy at the London College of Fashion.

With two decades in the beauty industry, Antonia Burrell is also a revered natural beauty pioneer – and her 100% natural, ethical and sustainable product line is uniquely results-driven. Anti-ageing, anti-blemish and supremely perfecting, every product is a labour of love – brimming with advanced proprietary blends of the world’s most potent natural actives.

Her unique approach is uniquely effective for many skin types. From severe problem skins to devitalised, stressed-out city complexions, her nutrient-packed Skin Perfecting Plant Therapy range targets myriad modern skin concerns, and Antonia prides herself on instilling confidence in those who’ve too long tried to cover up, or conceal, their skin issues.

Her wealth of natural plant and aromatherapy knowledge, coupled with her extensive experience as a therapist, has made her one of the most sought after and renowned skincare experts in the UK today; her “Natural Face Lift Facial” is so advanced that it has been formally accredited by one of the industry’s top awarding bodies, BABTAC, and is now taught as part of the London College of Fashion post-graduate curriculum.

Passionate about living a holistic lifestyle, Antonia leads a busy life that she always balances with restorative time away from the hustle and bustle of her packed city schedule. Work/Life Balance is crucial to Antonia, who despite possessing one of the busiest diaries in the beauty business, is always mindful to surround herself with simple, joyful things. Partial to flower markets at dawn, seaside escapes for the weekend, a long baths with beautiful candles burning, and the simple joy of cooking great organic food for her family, her lifestyle choice is simple: when you feel good inside, it can only reflect outward. And as with all things that Antonia does, beauty is never simply about the surface.

ETHICALLY AND SUSTAINABLY SOURCED…

The Antonia Burrell Holistic Skincare collection is a 100% natural blend of potent, predominantly organic, pure, bio-active plant extracts that respect and understand the true physiology of beauty. Radiant, healthy looking skin cannot be achieved if the mind is not calmed and nervous energy diffused. The Antonia Burrell Holistic Skincare collection therefore transforms the monotony of daily skincare regimes into an indulgent time for calm and healing and well-being.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Antonia several times and I even had a skincare consultation with her a few years ago so I’m familiar with her products.

A few months ago I was lucky to win a giveaway on Twitter from Antonia Burrell London.

Here are the lovely goodies I received from the giveaway….

Dispense into the palm of a damp hand, and mix with a splash of water to produce the foam. Massage all over clean skin with circular motions, adding water as required, until skin is left supremely smooth. Use after cleansing and before conditioning.

How to use:

I use this as part of my evening routine. The Radiant light serum has a lovely soothing aroma. I massage 2 pumps into damp skin after applying Forest Dew skin conditioner. It sinks it easily and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.

Then I proceed to do the cupping massage. I really enjoy the massage as it feels relaxing, the cup moves easily on the skin so there’s no pulling at all. The facial cupping massage helps lymphatic drainage, clears toxins, increases blood flow and reduce puffiness.

It has made a visible difference to my skin. My skin looks more supple, refreshed, glowing and lifted.

 

Thank you Antonia for these amazing products.
