How-to: Shop for your Skin

There’s a certain art to skincare shopping. While scrutiny certainly plays a part when shopping for a dress or a bag, when it comes to your skin – something you wear every day, it’s important to know what you’re looking for. Luckily, our ESPA experts make this very easy for you.

Ask Questions

Never be afraid to ask questions. All our ESPA experts are trained therapists and are more than qualified to answer any query you may have. They’re happy to share their expert knowledge with you and want you to make the right choices for your skin.

Know your Skin Type

No one knows your skin better than you do – educating yourself on what skin type symptoms to look out for, will mean you’ll arrive in store with a much more focused idea of what you want. To discover your skin type, try out our Skin Consultation tool. Alternatively, our lovely ESPA experts can guide you on the day.

Read the Label

Reading ingredient lists and product descriptions in store is a great way to learn more about the products you’re intending to use. For some, it is an extremely important step in skincare shopping. While it’s hard to go too far wrong with natural products, not all of our Tri-Active™ blends are suitable for everyone, especially those with sensitive skin, allergies or during pregnancy. Our ESPA experts will be able to guide you if you’re unsure of ingredients for your skin condition.

Try it, Buy it

No matter what you’re shopping for, we all prefer to try before we buy. Ask our ESPA experts for a complimentary hand and arm massage while they talk you through their expert recommendations for your skin. Make sure you don’t leave without plenty of samples to try applying the products yourself at home.

Alternatively, uncover your skin’s unique characteristics with our online consultation, Skin Expert.
