It was a dull and rainy Sunday and I was back home to Manchester for the weekend after a tiring week back at work in York. My skin was looking lacklustre and I was in need of a pamper without spending hours in the salon and draining my purse too.
Cue the new Elizabeth Arden Speed Services! You can’t really do much with 15 minutes these day can you, but if you head over to an Elizabeth Arden counter you can get prettier looking skin in no time at all. The full Speed Service Menu is extensive which you can view below.
I opted for the Oxygen Blast facial treatment. The facial isn’t about long, luxurious massages or deep-down pore cleansing – it’s a fast fix designed to get you glowing and out the door in no time!
Jess, my therapist, used a small air gun-like device to apply a blast of oxygen-rich serum all over your face, which quickly plumps and brightens skin. A mixture of Elizabeth Arden Products were then applied to my face including a Prevage serum to give a golden glow to my skin. It feels like gently being airbrushed. It’s so speedy, you’re up and out of the chair in no time and you don’t even need to take your makeup off if you don’t want to!
Booster Bar Customised Oxygen Blasts – £15
The Oxygen Blast is now available in four exclusive formulas: Lifting, Detoxifying, Brightening and Hydrating. This 15-minute spa refresher includes cleansing and toning followed by a quick mist of customers’ preferred Oxygen Blast serum delivered via an airbrush stylus. The nutrient-enriched blasts with stabilised oxygen, 8 trace minerals, and potent antioxidants like green tea help revitalize, recharge and re-energize skin. The Booster Bar can also be used over makeup to set it for the day. To top off the service, SUPERSTART Skin Renewal Booster, along with complementary Elizabeth Arden serum and moisturizer are applied to the face and neck.
Tone It UpTown Ceramide Lifting Massage – £15
Experience a relaxing facial massage to promote lifting and toning while helping to restore skin with the essential lipids it needs. This 15-minute service features Elizabeth Arden’s new Advanced Ceramide Capsules. After skin is gently cleansed and toned, lifting and sculpting techniques are performed using the capsules. This single-dose serum is proven to enhance skin’s barrier repair function, increase moisturization within the surface of the skin, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Following the application of the capsule serum, the best ceramide moisturizer is applied, leaving skin looking lifted, radiant and noticeably softer and smoother.

Lady Liperty – Free
Inspired by the lovely Lady Liberty, this 10-minute lip facial takes steps from our full face facial that consumers know and love and applies them to the area around the mouth. An array of Elizabeth Arden products are used to help exfoliate, moisturize, and seal to achieve the ultimate hydrated pout. To begin, the beauty consultant removes any lip colour that the consumer has on her lips using Elizabeth Arden’s All Gone Eye and Lip Makeup Remover. Next, lips are exfoliated gently before the cult-favorite Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant is applied to seal and protect lips. Your lips will be kissable in minutes!
Pampered Hands Treatment – Free
This 15-minute, express hand treatment uses a combination of Elizabeth Arden products to moisturize and hydrate hands. Using either Eight Hour® Cream Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment or Eight Hour® Cream All-Over Miracle Oil, customers enjoy a pampering, hydrating hand massage. This massage is designed to relax and stretch hands that are often tense. Both products help to seal in hydration for the duration of the day.
