ESPA Tri-Active Advanced Instant Facial review

Skincare is such an important part of my daily routine. From cleansing my skin in the morning and starting the day feeling refreshed and revitalised to taking the day away in the evening and enjoying ‘me time’. I’ve always been hugely interested in skincare, and even pondered the option of training as a dermatologist in times past. Skincare fascinates me to put it simply. It amazes me how certain routines and ingredients can help to freeze the visible effects of time on our skin and leave us looking glowing, flawless and youthful without the help of makeup.

Late autumn and winter is a time of the year where I feel my skins starts to struggle a little. Central heating and extreme changes in temperatures can wreak havoc on my skin and I have to remind myself to keep drinking water to nourish my skin from the inside too.

Just recently I was sent the beautiful Tri-Active Advanced Instant Facial to try. Described as an “age-defying 3-in-1 serum, essence and treatment oil to instantly smooth and hydrate while brightening the complexion”, I had high hopes. I don’t think there’s anything more luxurious than a gorgeous skincare routine filled with beautiful products that are enjoyable to use. I feel that if you enjoy your skincare routine, you’re absolutely likely to stick to it and look forward to that time in your day. And there’s no doubting that ESPA products are both gorgeous and enjoyable to use.

ESPA are committed to working on holistic foundations blended with the knowledge of skincare specialists such as dermatologists, biochemists and aromatherapists. Combined together, the expertise of each comes together to make natural, effective and innovative products and treatments within the ESPA range. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why ESPA products are so popular.

This gorgeous 3-in-1 contains antioxidant macroalgae cell extract which helps to smooth the appearance of fine line, white truffle extract to boost elasticity and coconut, joboa and avocado oils to nourish and strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier.

After cleansing and toning, 1 to 2 pumps should be warmed in the palm of your hands then pressed into the skin gently all across the face, décolleté and neck. I follow this with my regular moisturiser both day and night.

I have recently just completed my course of the Acne banishing drug Isotretinoin (also known as Accutane), so my skin has been both dry and de-hydrated due to the treatment. Because of the extra dryness, I can’t tell you how much I look forward to using this beautiful serum in my routine and how comforted and soft my skin feels once I’ve applied it. I use two pumps which I find is plenty enough and really enjoy the light but nourishing consistency. The scent is beautifully soft – a gorgeously soothing jasmine-like scent that brings the spa to my home every single day.

My skin is always left looking radiant, nourished and fresh thanks to this step in my routine.
I’ve only been using ESPA’s Tri-Active Advanced Instant Facial for around three weeks now, but since I first tried it out it’s been a part of my routine. So much so that I even took it away with me when I spent the night in Manchester at my cousin’s house. I couldn’t bear to leave it at home!

If you’re looking to up your skincare routine or buy a beautiful gift for your mum, sister or friend, then I think this beautiful product is a lovely addition to anybody’s routine.

Getting personal on BBC Radio Sheffield | My experience with bullying, heartbreak and love

Just recently I was invited back to BBC Radio Sheffield to have a chat with Rony Robinson on his afternoon show. If you’re familiar with Rony, you’ll know that he interviews a guest on his show and delves into their life story to reveal a more personal side. I’d previously been at the radio station over Halloween talking about my gory SFX makeovers and making the lovely Kat Harbourne over, so I jumped at the chance when Kat asked me if I’d like to go back.

Before the show, I was sent a questionnaire full of questions about my life experiences, my biggest achievements and the people that have helped to shape me into the person that I am today.

Getting personal on BBC Radio Sheffield | My experience with bullying, heartbreak and love | Rachael Divers

My answers were incredibly personal, but I felt it was the right time to talk about a few issues that I’d had in my life over the years gone by. It’s not often that I delve into my personal life online. After all, I am the head of a business and I like to keep things on a more professional level. But what changed my thinking is that I might be able to reach out and help somebody else cope with what they’re going through or give them a little hope too. If I touched just one person in the process, then it was a job well done.

I won’t go into detail about the interview in case you’d like to listen to it for yourself. But what I will say is that we discussed bullying, the heartbreak that I’ve never talked about before, love and hope. I hope that you’ll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed doing the interview with the lovely Rony.

Thank you to BBC Radio Sheffield for inviting me onto Rony’s show, it was a brilliant experience!

Listen to my interview with Rony by clicking here – the interview starts at 1:37:55.
