A Gift From The Heart
Photographer: Adrian Gauci @adriangauci_photography
It has been quite a busy month. I have just come back from conquering Everest for children’s charity and straight got immersed into work. There was no time to take a break. I was so glad my uni friend, Mila, called me up and suggested a girls catch up. Next we were sipping Passionfruit and Orange blend at the afternoon tea in The Ritz.
What I expected the least is a gift. It was my belated birthday treat, a gorgeous Lucia Magnani Ben Essere Set. My skin having withstood high altitudes of Mount Everest, extreme temperatures and tons of makeup at the shoots definitely rejoiced at the vision of a luxurious skincare set.
I was thrilled as a child. Both Mila and I were impatient to get our hands on the travel set. The toner was a first try. Subtly fragranced and refreshing it earned my respect from the first spritz. By the time champagne has arrived we had gone through the whole range.
The set includes:
- Daily Firming Hydrator 15ml
- Rejuvenating Eye Cream 15ml
- Rejuvenating Serum 30ml
- Rejuvenating Night Cream 15ml
- Refreshing Energizing Tonic 30ml
- Retexturing Radiance Mask 15ml
The products named as ‘rejuvenating’ and ‘refreshing’ truly convey the meaning of those words. Thanking Mila for the this gift from the heart I took my journey with this skincare set.
The result case soon after a few days. Preparing for the shoot I noticed how my skin turned smoother, softer, brighter and more radiant. The moisturisers and Rejuvenating Serum has not only quenched my skin of its thirst but has also significantly reduced the appearance of pores on my skin. The Rejuvenating Eye Cream leaves my eyes looking so bright and smooth despite the layers of makeup a model’s lifestyle imposes. The Refreshing tonic has not only made my skin more radiant, but I keep it in my purse everywhere I go. Putting it in the fridge the night before lets me start the day with a smile and a scent of bergamot, especially in this heat. Sometimes even spritzing it over a makeup does wonders to my look for the day.
Last but not the least is the mask.
This fango mask literally makes my midweek me time worthwhile. It pulls any impurities I may have had out of my skin. In fact, five minutes into applying it only my skin it had dried and I noticed small dots on the mask, mostly where I knew I had clogged pores (e.g. on my nose) and I could feel the difference. My skin looked so smooth, so supple.
I shamelessly fell in love with these products and decided to get a Lucia Magnani facial at Harvey Nichols on Wednesday the 28th. I would recommend these products to everyone and really do believe the facial will live up to my expectations too. Who knows maybe I will see you there!
