BLOGGER CHRISTINE BARNETT VISITING OUR CONCEPT CLINIC
Blogger Christine Barnett recently came to pay us a visit at our Manchester concept clinic located inside Harvey Nichols! Here are her thoughts...
Flint + Flint at Harvey Nicks.
[Disclosure]I would like to state that these views are my own and I am not being paid to write this. I have experienced a complimentary facial and loved the result and decided to share the experience with you guys.
Flint + Flint recently opened in Manchesters Harvey Nicks and I was intrigued to find out more.
So, Flint + Flint is owned by Maxine and Adam. Over the last ten years Maxine and Adam recommended the best skin care products to their clients and performed thousands of treatments on their respective clientele. They decided to set out to create their own range of products made right here in UK. The USP of their products is lower price but still containing active ingredients used in medical dermatological clinics.
This actually made happy to hear as sometimes facials can be a bit gimmicky and only touch the top epidermal layer of the skin ( basically nothing that I cannot do at home).
The concept is “anti spa” which is less clinical feel and more dark and moody mixed up with textured surfaces (or glitter walls!). Highly skilled aestheticians, nurses and doctors recommend relevant products as well as offer acne treatment, laser removal, injectables and more.
I was invited to try the COMCIT facial by Crystal Clear which combines Cryo Oxygen within its therapy session.
The facial uses latest anti ageing technology and boosts collagen production. Cold oxygen is pumped onto the skin which cools it provoking micro circulation and the skin can then kick start collagen production.
Then a microchanelling roller is used to create micro controlled trauma to the skin through microscopic pinpricks. This prompts the skin to create more collagen and elastin to repair itself and create pathways for the product to penetrate it into the dermis. Now this part does feel a bit prickly but no way does it hurt more than acupuncture ( you don’t feel any pain).
The COMCIT serum is then used to penetrate the skin and nourish it with nutrients necessary to create immediately plumper, youthful and radiant looking skin.
The treatment is available at Flint + Flint Harvey Nichols Manchester for £135 or 3 treatments for £325.
