A Blast from the Past - Jo Malone Skincare

Hi everyone,

Before I even get into this post properly I would first like to thank Michael James for sourcing the information that I needed to create this blog post. Michael is part of the same Jo Malone Facebook group that I am, plus he also runs a blog which is dedicated to all things Jo Malone. Michael's blog is www.jomalonefan.co.uk.

I was 16 when I made my first ever purchase from Jo Malone, and this was at the Jo Malone concession inside Harvey Nichols in Manchester. But, when I also made that purchase I was given a complimentary facial and make over using products from the now discontinued skincare and make up lines.

Complimentary Facial - Products Used

- Eucalyptus & Mint Frothing Cleansing Cream
- Rosemary & Lavender Skin Tonic (this was placed in warm water and used to remove the cleansing cream)
- Followed by the White Nectarine & Honey Face Mask
- Protein Serum
- Ginseng Day Moisturising Cream
- Green Tea & Honey Eye Cream

I can still remember the scents of some of the products that were used during this facial. The product scents I remember were the Rosemary & Lavender Skin Tonic, Eucalyptus & Mint Frothing Cleansing Cream, & also the White Nectarine & Honey Face Mask. All of the products within this skincare range smelt 'good enough to eat'.
