Melbourne Central Beauty Experience

To celebrate the start of SFW, I was lucky enough to be treated to an amazing beauty experience as part of the One Day Shopping Festival held at Melbourne Central. 

First stop was at Toni & Guy’s renowned Melbourne Central salon. My hair was in the very capable hands of the lovely Jordan who indulged me in the most amazing blow dry and styled my hair into soft loose curls. Jordan used all Label M products, which is T&G’s exclusive salon-only brand, including the Honey & Oat Shampoo and Conditioner (smells as divine as it sounds!), Blow out Spray, Curl Cream and Shine Spray. The result were lovely soft polished curls with plenty of volume - ultra glam and a great change from my regular messy textured look!

I was then whisked away to Mecca Maxima (I've said it before and I'll say it again, heaven on earth!) to talk all things skin and products especially for the upcoming spring/summer weather. My lovely skincare expert Lynette introduced me to the luxe Eve Lom range which is designed for people of all skin types and textures. The highlights from the range included the Cleanser and Intense Hydration Serum. I immediately fell in love with the balm-like cleanser which melts on contact with the skin (similar to the Clinique take the day off cleansing balm - which I love!). The cleansing stage took the longest time as the cleanser is designed to be massaged into the skin for a good couple of minutes and then taken off with a warm muslin cloth, which opens the pores and gently exfoliates the skin. My skin was left amazingly soft and ultra clean - exactly what I want when I've spent a whole day with a full face of makeup on. My skin honestly didn't need any moisturiser after which is amazing, but Lynette did show me the Intense Hydration Serum followed by the Day Cream which instantly added a glow and made my skin feel a lot more plump. The Eve Lom range is certainly more on the higher end in terms of pricing, so I'd definitely recommend paying a visit to a MM store to try it all out in person, you'll love!
