Greetings Earthlings! Guess I should say Happy New Year, really... I haven't been able to update this blog since before Christmas due to an unfathomable level of final year University stress. I'm now happy to inform you that I'm DONE and free to chatter about all things beauty with you once again. It feels so good! I'm here today to tell you all about an exciting new brand collaboration between skincare gurus Dermalogica and retro drinks experts SodaStream. With summer fast approaching, the new skincare buzzword is hydration and Dermalogica want to spread the message that hydrating your body also works wonders for your skin.
This week I popped along to see both brands at the One New Change shopping centre near St Paul's for a spot of face-mapping and to learn the importance of hydration from both inside and out. Research has shown that we Brits aren't the best at getting our recommended daily dose of H2O, yet we spend hundreds on skincare products. Dermalogica believe that great skincare products can be even greater and more effective when teamed with optimum hydration, and so an alliance was made and SodaStream stepped up to help educate the nation on the importance of hydration, regardless of your skin type.
The brands have put their heads together and come up with the ultimate Sparkling Skin Package, which includes:
- SodaStream Source sparkling water maker
- MultiActive Toner
- Skin Hydrating Booster
- Intensive eye Repair
- Skin Hydrating Masque
On top of this they recommend at least 2 litres of water a day and, thanks to SodaStream, getting that amount needn't feel like a chore. At the event I sipped on refreshing sparking water with a good squeeze of lime and other delicious fruits. I could get used to that! My face-mapping session with a Dermalogica specialist proved that I definitely have areas which could use some extra hydration. I now have all the products I need so expect some reviews coming up on this blog in the very near future. I'm already incorporating the products into my daily routine.
The Sparkling Skin package will be available from sodastream.co.uk from June 2015 and will retail at £89.
It's a great opportunity to sample some amazing products whilst also having great fun with water. Here's to a summer of Sparkling Skin!
