Crystal Clear Skincare Event

I was recently invited to an event by the lovely ladies at Crystal Clear Skincare for a new product they were releasing. I hadn't actually heard of the brand before, but from what I saw online prior to the event, it sounded great. Along with that it was my first event, so what blogger would turn that down? I brought along my beautiful friend Dina, who is also a lover of all things beauty - just like me! so I knew she'd love it just as much as I would.We got into the event and actually we were the first ones there, we were eager to hear about the products! (I've borrowed some pictures of the event from the Crystal Clear Skincare event page, you can see them all here!)

Crystal Clear Skincare is actually a Salon brand, they have been going from 1995 so are definitely a well established brand and now they are branching out into selling their own products including the one they were showing us at the event - their new Lift Away The Years product!

The hotel, 'The Soho Hotel' the event was held at was beautiful. The décor was stunning and Dina and I were in awe. Going from our plain dingy rooms in Halls, to the beautifully decorated hotel was quite an exciting change, even if just for the night... We were greeted with wine and non-alcoholic cocktails, we obviously opted for the wine, what student would say no to wine?! And it was lovely, neither of us would usually opt for wine but it went down a treat. The room was filled with products and goody bags galore. In awe doesn't even describe how Dina and I were. 

We got the chance to meet the lovely ladies that worked for Crystal Clear Skincare, they were all so lovely. We also got to meet Sharon the founder of the company and got to chat with her and find out a bit more about the products. 

The launch was to show us about their new 'Lift Away The Years' product. The website says: 

'Lift Away the Years is a revolutionary new skincare sensation shaking up the beauty world.
Clinically proven to increase skin firmness and reduce wrinkles from first use, this revolutionary product developed by our anti-ageing expert, Sharon Hilditch MBE, produces results that are visible after the very first use.
Lift Away the Years releases Intense Anti Ageing Serum through the technologically advanced oscillating applicator head and provides an innovative way of applying moisturiser to the face. Not only does it allow the moisturiser to penetrate deeply for maximum hydration, it also gives a visible firming and lifting effect to the whole face including eyes, brows, jaw line and cheeks, plumping lines and wrinkles.
The result? Beautifully rejuvenated skin in an instant. Skin looks and feels firmer, younger, toned and hydrated. Use twice daily as part of your skincare regime and watch the results get better and better day-by-day.
Priced at £79.99, this includes Crystal Clear Intense Anti-Ageing Serum (30ml).'
If I don't get any use out of this, I'll either save it for when I need it or I'll pass it on to my Mum who I know will!

Although the products weren't exactly directed at our age range - anti-ageing for 19 year olds, maybe not... But it doesn't hurt to be prepared right? I remember saying once that I'd start using anti-ageing products and 20 and at under 2 months away (so scary!) perhaps this event came at a great time! 

The event was great and we also got the chance to meet the lovely Luce from Bonjour Luce. Her blog is great, you'll love it if you don't already. (Here's a cheeky snap I took of Sharon applying the product to Luce!)

We left, feeling a bit tipsy, and headed off for a few cocktails round the corner at Revoloution Soho. They we're delicious!

I was planning on writing the reviews in this post also, but I didn't quite realise how picture heavy the post was going to be and so not to overwhelm you all I will include reviews in their own separate post, so you've all got that to look forward to soon.
