GUEST BLOG: Antonia Burrell's Skincare Fixers

About Us page component.


Antonia Burrell is the celebrity facialist with a waiting list as long as her arm and a range of award-winning skincare - a best seller here at MyShowcase! In this week's guest blog, we ask Antonia to explain a little more about her natural, plant-based range, who can use it and why it's right for many skin types, not just those with hormonal or problem skin types. Over to Antonia...



Cleansing is the key to perfect skin, but with so many facial cleansers on the market, it can often be difficult to find the right one for you. Whether you're a busy working mum, celebrity, high-powered businesswoman or a stay-at-home mum who's busy with the kids, Antonia Burrell's pure, honest and potent skincare formulations use clinically-proven plant bio actives for flawless, fresher-looking, trouble-free skin – whatever your skin type.

The skin-fixing, age-defying skincare range targets both troublesome skin issues as well as common skincare concerns. What makes her products so unique is that each formulation is free from chemicals, parabens, mineral oils, synthetic fragrances and is loaded with scientifically-proven plant bio actives to reveal brighter, healthier, flawless, happier-looking skin - suitable for women of all skin types and lifestyles.

Busy Mums

If you're a busy, working mum, stay-at-home mum, a new mum or juggling many balls looking after sick ones, your skincare regime most likely takes a back seat. New mums can sometimes suffer with pigmentation and/or chloasma during pregnancy. This is a condition in which areas of the skin become darker than the surrounding skin. It typically occurs on the face, especially the forehead, cheeks and above the upper lip.

The Fix: Antonia's Luminous Light Polishing Powder keeps skin firm, glossy and glowing – it's ideal for keeping skin smooth and fresh-looking, even though you may only have had three hours sleep! This unique, resurfacing, exfoliating powder keeps skin beautifully polished as it removes dead cells, preventing cells from building up which can cause dryness, breakouts and premature lines as the skin thickens. It's very gentle and can be used daily. Betaine stimulates collagen which gives a firm, plumped look to the skin. The result? Brighter, smoother, younger-looking skin, gently buffing away dead skin cells without causing irritation or dryness.

Next up, the gentle yet effective 7-in-1 Mask Supreme with a smoothing AHA-active blend of Sorbic acid, Salicylic acid and Lactic Acid. This lifts dead skin cells and promotes fresh new ones, while balancing out skin's pH and boosting collagen production. Abyssinian Oil has a super-light texture; it's an easy facial oil for skin to "drink" without clogging the pores and it can even help deep lines and exceptionally dry complexions.

The Business Woman

Women in business who are busy trying to look great and concentrate on their careers' hectic schedules may not always have enough time for regular skincare discoveries or treatments. This, along with longer working hours and high pressured environments, can be why early ageing and dark spots are common skin problems for women. Working to a tight schedule? Brighten and improve the look of your skin easily and quickly with the following:

The Fix: The award-winning Forest Dew Skin Conditioner is a beauty water with a serum texture and is a welcome addition to any routine, regardless of what other brands you're using, because it enhances any product it's mixed with by plumping skin for a camera-ready finish. With clinically-proven French Fucose extract to firm skin, the Forest Dew has a blurring effect on large pores, which are also reduced by 18% thanks to our patented Swiss Alpine extract.

Moreover, the 7-in-1 Mask Supreme is made from mineral-rich Bentonite Clay which is clinically-proven to draw out toxins from the skin through electrical "attraction" - so it does a great job of sucking out impurities whilst also helping encourage cell renewal. Another reason this mask is different is owing to Oleosome Technology. Oleosomes are micron-sized spheres of emollient plant oils. In this case, it's combined with vitamin E and surrounded by a phospholipid membrane and protein coat. Basically, this means that nutrients are delivered to the skin both instantly as well as in a delayed time-release way for longer lasting hydration with increased luminosity as a pay-off

Women with Pimples and Wrinkles

Surely breakouts belong to the same era as your first kiss or the school prom? Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. Numerous 35–60 year olds suffer with adult acne. So, how do you handle those blackheads and bumps without aggravating your ageing skin concerns, namely fine lines, dryness and age spots?

The Fix: For troublesome skin sufferers, the highly-active Pure Therapy Facial Serum Oil is the ultimate anti-ageing acne solution – it's so hydrating and spot-fighting too, and leaves skin feeling like it's really been taken care of – plumper, smoother, hydrated and generally clearer-looking – all in just half an hour. Packed with 21 of the finest pure plant extracts, this highly effective treatment will calm, purify, heal and regulate the natural balance of either oily or very dry skin. Added larch extract also firms and stimulates collagen production.

Improve overall skin health with the deep-action Cream Supreme Facial Moisturiser – an anti-acne formula packed with an intelligent blend of plant extracts that fit whatever your skin needs. As well as controlling acne and blemishes, this advanced 100% natural formulation also treats skin ageing, dull or uneven skin tones, imperfections and pigmentation problems. The result? Improved radiance, tone, elasticity and firmness.
