We caught up with Clientele's guest expert, Caroline Barnes, to find out a little more about the skincare range…
To a new customer, how would you describe Clientele's philosophy?
Clientele's philosophy is to use science and the best of Mother Nature's secrets to help revitalise, revive and reawaken your natural beauty.
Patricia Riley, who owns the range, is a nutritional scientist who has spent over 30 years developing cutting edge natural formulas. She truly understands your skin's functions and its needs. Clientele is the result of this passion Pat has with skincare.
The key to Clientele is an amazing discovery – a natural plant based repair enzyme found in the lotus seed and harnessed and patented by Pat and her team. This key ingredient is combined with high concentrations of peptides and vitamins, and finely tuned to help support skin as naturally as possible.
What skin types is Clientele it best suited to?
Clientele has two sides to its range:
Elastology is packed with natural plant extracts, including the patented repair enzyme formula found in the lotus seed, and vital, finely balanced vitamins and peptides, and is suitable for ALL skin types and ages.
Estro-lift is suitable for ladies over 30 years of age. It's packed with plant-based phyto-oestrogens (including the patented Estrokin), which are vital to help reawaken and support a hormonal skin.
What are your top three products from the range?
This is a tricky one… as a lady of a certain age I love the Estro-Lift range, as my skin responds to it so well. But, I have certain products that I can't do without on the Elastology range as well! So, my top three products are…
1. Elastology Lotus Firming Serum
I love the smell and the instant firming effect on my skin – it's incredibly concentrated with goodies (16 serums in one!) so my skin feels instantly quenched!
2. Estro-Lift Day Cream (can be bought within a set)
I won't leave the house without it, seriously! It has all the concentrated phyto-oestrogens, peptides and vitamins my skin needs to help rebalance the ageing process, AND it contains a SPF factor of 25, so I know my skin is protected.
3. The new Elastology Thermal Mineral Sea Scrub
I use this twice a week on my skin as a treatment mask, but for problem skins you can use it daily, as a cleanser. It's a real treat for my skin – cleansing, refreshing and invigorating for my skin, giving it a wonderful clean fresh glow! If you're a fan of the pumpkin scrub, you'll LOVE this!
What do you think is the key to beautiful-looking skin?
I think the key to beautiful skin is understanding your skins needs, and to help support its fine balance with skincare you can trust and have confidence in. When your skin shines, so do you!
