We are unabashed Anglophiles here at wht, and skincare therapist Sarah Chapman is next in line for our throne of adoration! I would hop the next flight across the pond this instant if I could get an appointment with this much sought-after facialist at her London spa. Her client list includes many respected journalists and celebrities, including Jemma Kidd, Naomi Watts, and the Queen of Jordan. People lucky enough to be treated to one of her personalized facials rave about Sarah’s magical fingers! And of course, her amazing line of products.
Sarah is well known throughout England from her numerous TV appearances as a resident beauty expert for various channels. Her 18 years of experience in the field are apparent when you watch her video clips, but it’s not just her obvious expertise in her area, it’s her easy-going style and her own true beauty that make me want to watch and learn more from her. To see what I mean, check out this clip of Sarah comparing faces made up with makeup ranging from just a few dollars to hundreds of dollars.
In it, Sarah shares with us that it’s not so much the high price tag that makes an effective product, but the inclusion of crucial ingredients like antioxidants, vitamin A, peptides, and first and foremost, sunscreen. If your product has those ingredients, it’s going to do the job whether it’s low or high cost – brilliant advice! That being said, if you want to have the utmost confidence in your products, and you can’t catch the next flight to England to have one of Sarah’s signature facials, then you may want to try the next best thing!
Sarah has developed her own line of beauty products packed full of those powerhouse ingredients, with the aim of combining science and technology with luxury. Her products are high strength with hand blended essential oils and are free of parabens. The line is called Skinesis, derived from the Greek word kinesis, meaning “movement with stimulation”, most notably referring to her unique fast tapping, pinching, and knuckling Skinesis facial.
We tested two of Sarah’s most coveted products. First the Skinesis Overnight Facial ($89) which has quite a cult following. I did not personally try this, but our reviewers will be along in the comments to share their findings. It is said to be a potent cocktail of powerhouse antioxidants, vitamins and peptides to recreate the benefits of Sarah’s facials overnight. It is fragranced with a soothing essential oil blend of jasmine, frangipani, rose, and tuberose.
I tried the Eye Recovery ($84), which is one spectacular product! It all starts with the perfect pump. There is no cap to remove (which is a real bonus to me), just a perfectly proportioned pump, which delivers just the right amount of product (Sarah says this airless pump also protects light and air sensitive ingredients such as vitamins and antioxidants). The cream itself is everything you want in a good eye cream – it’s silky soft, lightweight yet rich, absorbs instantly, and leaves no heavy or oily residue.
The results are some of the best I’ve seen on my almost 35 year-old eyes! Smoother crow’s feet, less puffiness, and just generally brighter eyes are some of my initial findings. I’ll share more detail in the comments section, and I’ll also share my 58 year-old mom’s report, who tested this with me.
Testers and we heartsters that have had the luxury of trying Sarah Chapman’s Skinesis products, are you joining us in our Anglophilic ways?
