The last few weeks have seen my time consumed almost entirely by our work exhibition, Salon Intentional. If you’ve never spent three days under a glass roof with 40,000 hairdressers let me tell you this – you’ve not lived.
Inspiring as the show is, it’s like fashion week to the power of ten in terms of tiredness, sore feet, bad eating habits and dehydration. I think my diet over the weekend could quite easily be summed up in four words; wine, sweets and black coffee – and you’d better believe I’m seeing the results now that I’m back in the real world.
Luckily, I had a sample of Vichy Laboratories Idealia Life Serum awaiting sampling – and with the USP being that it’s a product that helps repair damage caused by working hard, staying out late, drinking too much and harsh environmental aggressors, it seemed like the ideal choice. They actually sent it to me for fashion week but I was well aware that I had way, way, way more intense days to come.
I’m pleased to report that it’s been a total success over the weekend – it smells divine, has a velvety-smooth texture and leaves skin glowing and hydrated. Which, ultimately, is the main result that I was hoping for. Double thumbs up – and if you want to try it, you can get a free sample here!
My other Salon International survival kit consists of these two buys from Zara – a giant tartan blanket of a scarf, which is warm, soft and big enough to swaddle yourself fully and another piece of ridiculous costume jewelry, which does a mean job of distracting people from the redness of your eyes after three days in a convention centre.
