Application Advice: Use morning and evening. Apply a 10p amount to the palm of your hands. Massage over the face and neck onto dry skin – massaging in circular motions. Remove with damp cotton pads and use around the eye area if needed.

Step 2 – Essential Tonifying Lotion

Following on from your cleanse, it’s really important to tone the skin. Toning closes the pores, it re-balances the PH of the skin and it helps to prepare the skin for the next part of your treatment.

A self-confessed skincare addict, I’m always on the search for new products to add to my collection! I believe there’s nothing quite as flattering as when your skin heralds a certain luminescence. I’ve recently qualified as a Beauty Therapist, so when I’m not writing about all things beauty, I love nothing more than pampering my friends & family!
