One of life’s many little joys is a bit of you time. But when was the last time you actually stopped and indulged? If you’re anything like me it’s probably longer ago than you think it was. I’ve always been a big advocate of taking a little bit of time out for yourself, but lately there hasn’t been enough hours in the day. So when I was invited down for a bit of Clinique You-Time at Boots in intu Chapelfield, I jumped at the chance.
Clinique You-Time is a wonderful concept. On counter there are a range of free skincare and make-up services that take between ten and twenty minutes. You don’t need to buy anything and you get a free treat to take home too. It’s pretty hard to say no! There’s also no pressure to buy anything at the end of your consultation which is refreshing. The vibe in Boots in into Chapelfield is pretty chilled out so it’s a completely non judgemental and un-intimidating place to be. So whether you’re a die hard fan or know nothing about skincare and make up Clinique will take good care of you.
I opted for a a couple of the make up You-Time treats after work. With a glass of elderflower fizz in hand, Ellie sat down and chatted about make up with me. We talked about what I loved and didn’t love and she built the look from there. We went for a medium coverage yet light and glowy base, using the Even Better Skin foundation. A subtle smoky eye with lots of mascara, a gorgeous matte pink lipstick and lashings of bronzer on the cheeks. Ellie really understood the kind of make up I liked and I was really happy with the final outcome. I looked like a better version of me.
Not only was I looking better, but I felt a lot better too. My mind felt a lot clearer, I felt relaxed, refreshed and ready to head out to the Gin Festival. I learnt a few tips and ticks in my You-Time make over too. It’s hard to describe how much better I felt for taking a little bit of time out for myself. After a long and busy week it was the perfect way to end it.
I’d highly recommend heading to Boots intu Chapelfield for a spot of Clinique You-Time. If you’re a skincare or make up lover, it’s a great way of getting to try out new or classic products before investing in them. Though you may come out with a long wishlist if you’re anything like me! Clinique You-Time is also great if you’re heading out straight after work and need a little touch up, to amp up your look for the evening. It’s incredible how much better you feel after taking a small amount time out of your day for yourself. With the counter being in Boots in Norwich’s main shopping centre there’s no excuse for not nipping in!
There’s honestly nothing better than looking and feeling like a better version of you. So go on indulge in a bit of you-time. You’re so worth it!
