The festive season is pretty much upon us and while it is the season for giving, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be receiving a little bit too. If you’re suffering from the end of year slump (the struggle is real ladies!) then you can’t miss out on this fabulous opportunity to spoil yourself for a steal. Taking place in Cape Town this weekend, the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Experience offers ladies the chance to pamper themselves with over R1,500 in beauty treatments for the crazy low price of just R100. No ladies, that price isn’t missing any zeroes and yes, if you’re in Cape Town then you need to get down to Canal Walk Shopping Centre right now!
Taking place from Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th November 2017, The Red Door Experience gives women the chance to meet top beauty experts who will treat you to a beauty experience like no other. Situated in the Canal Walk Shopping Centre Centre Court, this pop-up beauty spa offers ladies a detailed skin consultation, mini facial, brightening eye massage, luxurious hand massage, and makeup application by professional makeup artists all for just R100! Plus, the R100 you spend on the ticket is rewarded back to you in voucher form in case you want to splash out and spoil yourself at the Elizabeth Arden pop-up shop on site.
I got the chance to visit The Red Door Experience yesterday and I honestly can’t recommend it enough. If you’re going out on the town this weekend it’s a must-visit as you can get primped and pampered at a ridiculous price. The process starts with a facial consultation where they use a rather fancy-pants skin scanning device to do an in-depth skin scan of your skin. This process reveals your skin elasticity, moisture levels, and pigmentation levels.
Once your beauty expert has figured out just what your skin needs it’s time for a facial using the Elizabeth Arden skincare products recommended for you. After this step, my skin was feeling refreshed and oh-so-soft but it didn’t end there as my next stop was the massage station where I got an eye treatment and massage as well as a super relaxing hand massage using the lust-worthy Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour All Over Miracle Oil (R395). It’s Heaven in a bottle and can be used on your face, body, and hair!
The last step in my transformation was the makeup station. Here a professional makeup artist went through a quick consultation to figure out what type of foundation and makeup I like, before starting on my mini makeover. The makeup artist started the makeover by doing a foundation match on my skin and even gave me a sample to take home so I could ensure I get the right shade next time I popped into the store. After I was happy with my foundation she gave me a natural-looking night time look to die for using Elizabeth Arden’s makeup products. I left The Red Door Experience looking, and feeling, like a new woman and I felt so invigorated afterwards I even called my boyfriend to inform him we were going out on an impromptu date night.
If you miss out on this fabulous event, don’t fret. The Elizabeth Arden Red Door Experience is just the icing on the cake and is actually just a fun way to introduce Elizabeth Arden fans to the ongoing Red Door Speed Services available at Elizabeth Arden beauty counters. Customers can pop in at an Elizabeth Arden counter any time (a quick phone call to let them know you’re coming is recommended if you’re desperate to get a treatment) and enjoy a 15-minute Elizabeth Arden Red Door Speed Service free of charge.
The menu includes free treatments like Booster Bar Customised Oxygen Blast (A quick refresher including cleansing and toning followed by a quick mist of Oxygen Blast serum), Tone It UpTown Ceramide Lifting Massage (relaxing facial massage to help lift, tone and restore) Tone It UpTown Lifting Eye Treatment (eye service with microcurrent technology that targets hard-to-reach areas around the eyes), Pampered Hands Treatment (express hand treatment using a combination of products to moisturise and hydrate hands), In A Red Door Minute Makeup Lesson, and so much more.
