So we're mid-way through January, officially THE longest month of the year, and all the girls here at The Amazing Blog's HQ in Chelsea are still trying to abide by their new year's health kick resolution - some successfully, some not so! And as a bunch of professional beauty junkies we were all delighted to come across Age Aware Skincare from ARK, a fabulous brand who happen to have a Skincare Centre just round the corner from us in Fulham.
Founded in 1998, the first ARK Skincare Centre was launched in Fulham by Shula Starkey who wanted to create a luxurious salon experience that was both intimate and welcoming. Such was their popularity that they have since expanded into both Putney and Wimbledon, where they have become the leading destination for skincare fanatics - ourselves included!
Over a decade after ARK's first conception saw the exclusive launch of ARK Age Aware Skincare. Following on from 4 years of dedicated research, the skincare range is the result of a collaboration with Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed, a Naturopathic doctor and leading expert in preventative health and nutrition from Canada. Looking at the way in which skin ages, as opposed to specific skin types, they developed 'age appropriate' products for three age ranges: Age Prepare (teens to early 30s), Age Maintain (mid 30s to 50) and Age Repair (50s and beyond), thus pioneering an alternative way of looking after skin.
Offering ARK Age Aware Assessments, during which your skin is assessed to find the right solution for you, and a beautiful range of products that really work - and we've tried them - ARK offer a new and innovative way of looking after your skin that will change the way you treat it forever. My particular favourite is the Nourishing Body Lotion which is a combination of Shea Butter, Kukui, Coconut Oil, Sea Oak and Silk Proteins. This body lotion quite literally feels like liquid silk when applied to the skin. Although it's £26 for 250 ml, a little real does go a long way so that's good economy in my book. It is also without doubt one of the best long-lasting all round body lotions that I have ever used. I absolutely love, love, LOVE it!
