Last week I headed to Newcastle, to my favourite store Fenwick for a spot of relaxation and me time with the team from Clarins in their brand new BeautyBAR.

Just over a month ago, the Clarins counter was completely renovated and given the addition of a beautiful treatment room, waiting area and beauty bar.
The BeautyBAR offers affordable, effective beauty treatments in just 40 minutes - Ideal for a mid shopping treat, for a much needed relaxation during a dinner break or for a pick me up skin treatment before a night out... The girls on counter will even do your makeup for you afterwards if needed. There is also a facial created just for men, so if you need somewhere to leave your other half while you shop, this is just perfect!
The treatment and waiting areas are so tranquil and beautifully decorated, and feel completely private and separate from the bustling environment of the beauty hall. The BeautyBAR is set back from the shop floor too, and with the addition of calming music, you soon forget where you are and are able to completely relax as though you're in a real spa for your treatment. (I visited at 11:45am on a busy Thursday lunch time, and I was almost asleep by the end of my facial!)

Clarins couldn't have invited me along at a better time... I'd had over a week of feeling poorly with flu, and was in definite need of a pick me up for myself and for my skin.

The BeautyBAR offers seven different treatment options, as well as seasonal specials, so there really is something to suit everyone's skincare needs.
After a quick skin consultation and analysis with my therapist to discuss any issues, problems and my current skincare routine, Alex suggested that I try the SOS Facial; A troubleshooting solution to help banish breakouts, wave goodbye to dryness, wage war on worry lines and deal with dullness. Each facial is tailored to each individual and the products used are those which will be most beneficial to you.
I was then able to recline, sit back and relax with my eyes closed and enjoy the mixture of cooling products, face masks and massage for a full thirty minutes of heaven.
The products used on me were; Cleansing Milk With Alpine Herbs, Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil, Multi-Active Day Cream, Detox Booster, SOS Comfort Mask.

Following the facial, I was able to register as a customer at the counter, and have all of the products used on my skin stored into my own account. There was no pressure to buy anything on the day, but knowing it's all there for me to look back on will make it so much easier to shop for when I need to top up my skincare. 

The treatments at the BeautyBAR cost only £25 each and are available to book online or over the phone.
My treatment was complimentary, but I will most definitely be returning for another.
