Over the years Ive tried many products and I always find it hard, with the amount of products out there, to find the right ones! My skin is dehydrated and Ive got sensitive skin so Ive got to be careful with the products I use. We have a great range of product at Zen but here are my top three….
I absolutely love Priori Barrier Repair! It is a fantastic water based moisturiser with suits all skin types. It is PH balanced so it helps protect my skin from everyday irritants, helps rebuilds my skins lipid barrier and also helps balance out natural oil and water levels in the skin. As I suffer from eczema I have tried many different steroids and creams to help it but I found that Barrier Repair, due to it repairing my skins natural lipid barrier, is the only product which has cleared it up completely. I would recommend this product for everyone as a daily moisturiser!
My second favourite product has to be Priori Invigorating Face and Body Scrub. This scrub contains BHA which gives the scrub affect on the surface of the skin and also AHA which works deeper in the skin, helping to stimulate cell renewal and dislodging dead skin and sebum that may get trapped in the pore. It is great product for fake tan users , people who suffer with hard or dry skin on the feet and ingrown hairs sufferers as the double exfoliation effect clears them up very quickly.
Finally, my third favorite is Murad Time Release Blemish cleanser. A great cleanser that will help remove impurities and excess oil from the skin but also helps balance out water levels meaning you wont get that tight feeling after you wash your face.

Priori now have fantastic dietary supplements that can be easily added in to your skin care regime. Sometimes we do all we can topically to the skin with different products and facials but the beauty of the supplements is that they are actually treating the skin from the inside. It’s no secret that there is a connection between inner health and outer radiance and overall skin appearance.
I have now tried all the supplements and I absolutely love the Advanced AHA ones! They help to achieve and maintain basic skin health and fitness, so are suitable for absolutely anyone.
The components of the supplements are:
Antioxidants – to fight free radical damage
Anti-inflammatory agents – to reduce inflammation and maintain cell hydration. Also relieves joint pains
Enzymes – for cell protection
Essential fatty acids – cell and skin improvement, hydration, skin resilience
Inner health – supports general health, immune system benefits, cell membrane stabilization.
It is recommended to take a 3 month course of supplements to gain optimum results. The supplements are small and easy to take. You just need 3 capsules daily with food.
I am totally hooked on the AHA supplements now! In less than 3 months I could see that my skin was more hydrated. My nails were so strong and were growing really quickly whereas before they were very weak and would split and peel. My hair is also much stronger and my hairdresser even commented that I had some new hair coming through! I was amazed at the visible difference I could see from taking the supplements and I would recommend them to everyone!

Priori Lash Recovery Serum is a brilliant product that helps improve your eyelashes in 2 weeks!
As we age, it affects the growth and renewal process of our eyelashes, resulting in thinner less abundant eyelashes. The Lash Recovery Serum helps to improve the overall condition and appearance of your lashes, promoting a healthy, voluptuous, natural look. It can also be used on your eyebrows to build fullness and thickness.
This new product is part of the Priori Target Skin Therapy range, and is the first prostaglandin-free product on the market with a unique complex of three different potent lipopeptides working in synergy to give compounded results. It has been clinically tested to improve lashes and brows in as little as 2 weeks! The product should be used once a day at bedtime, but you only need to be using it 3 to 4 times per week as maintenance once the desired results are achieved.
A lot of people use eyelash extensions to overcome the eyelash ageing problem, but this product is the perfect alternative for those looking for a long-term solution.
The Lash Recovery Serum is priced at £79. If you require more information, please ask at either of our Edinburgh salons at Teviot or Bruntsfield Place.
