Luxury skincare brand ESPA returns to QVC this month with gorgeous products you won't be able to resist. We caught up with their Skincare Specialist and guest presenter Donna Fisher to find out a little more about her and the brand's history…
Tell us about yourself?
With a background in spa therapy and training, I’ve been working with ESPA for over 12 years and am now proud to be their resident Skincare Specialist. I actively train therapists to deliver effective treatments and prescribe skincare routines and it’s my job to ensure that ESPA clients not only look great but feel great too. I’ve made it my mission to listen, understand and act on their needs and the desire for their skin to look and feel the very best it can.
Tell us more about ESPA's beginnings?
Established over 20 years ago, ESPA is the impassioned vision of our founder Sue Harmsworth (MBE). Having spent a lifetime in the spa and beauty world, Sue’s firm belief in the synergy between skincare and personal wellbeing led her to create a luxurious range of products and spa treatments which not only deliver visible results but provide beautiful experiences that go beyond the skin.
What’s different about ESPA?
As active in the company as when she founded ESPA, Sue still ensures to this day that every new product launched is not only exceptionally natural, ensuring all ESPA products work in harmony with the systems of the body – not against them, but is an exceptional pleasure to use too. The ESPA difference is that we are truly passionate about making a real difference to the way you look and ultimately feel – naturally.
ESPA products not only work, but they are really good for you and your skin too. We really care about the products we create so we make all our products to exacting standards, at our own state of the art manufacturing site in Somerset. All this ensures that we consistently deliver on three simple but powerful product promises:
Our products work – using skin science and cutting-edge technology we unleash the full potential of some of the finest and most effective natural ingredients, sourced worldwide. You can see it in the visible lasting benefits to your skin, both today and tomorrow.
Our products are exceptionally natural – on average our product formulations are an incredible 99% natural and kind to the skin too (our products do not contain any synthetic colours or fragrances, parabens, phthalates, DEA & TEA, mineral oil, SLS & SLES, silicones, propylene glycol, petrolatum).
ESPA products are a real pleasure to use – you can feel it in the luxurious textures and heavenly aromas that immerse your senses as only luxury spa products can!
What are your top products?
Used by around 4,000 therapists in over 3 million luxury treatments every year ESPA has hero products in every major product category – from Hydrating Cleansing Milk and Hydrating Floral Spafresh to 24-Hour Replenishing Eye Moisturiser and Soothing Body Oil… the list goes on.
What’s your latest hero product?
If there’s one product you have to try and add to your beauty regime it’s our new Optimal Skin ProSerum. Launched in September 2013 it’s the biggest and fastest selling new product since we launched 20 years ago, and our customers love it! Literally everything we’ve learned in one bottle – Optimal Skin ProSerum is suitable for all skin types/ages and the perfect beauty booster for any skincare routine.
It's the ultimate blend of a hydrating face treatment oil fused with a super serum that stimulates the skin’s own natural beautifiers (e.g., collagen, ceramide, hyaluronic acid) to help skin look and feel the very best it can.
Skin looks more naturally radiant and more beautiful every day, giving you the confidence to go without make-up. But don’t just take it from me, why not take the ESPA Optimal Skin ProSerum Challenge for yourself and prepare to bare this summer.
I am so excited to be sharing all this and more with you in our next show on Thursday 22nd May at 7pm!
