Skin is in

On Monday we unveiled the second phase of our Beauty Halls' transformation. We caught up with our skincare experts, Carolyn, Catalina and Javi to hear what they’re most excited about for the new space – and to get a few top skincare tips. 

How long have you worked at Harrods? 
Carolyn: Since December 2006. I’m coming up to 13 years! 
Catalina: Since 2014. I started in Ca’puccino, and a year later I joined our beauty department – and so began my journey in skincare. 
Javi: Four months and three weeks to be exact. 

What are you most excited about when it comes to the grand opening of the second phase of the Beauty Halls? 
Carolyn: I’m looking forward to seeing such a modern and diverse room, and seeing how our lovely customers who have been coming here for years respond to the space, especially the new elevated counter services that will be offered at La Mer. 
Catalina: To be a part of the Harrods Masterplan, and being the best skincare destination in the world that provides cutting-edge technology. 
Javi: I’m excited to experience the creation of the biggest beauty space in the world and be a part of how it all comes together in the second phase. I’m curious to find out what our customers think of it. 

What’s your number-one tip for looking after your skin? 
Carolyn: Always wear SPF25. And I never leave the house without my La Mer lip balm. 
Catalina: The most important part of any beauty routine is to have your own consistent skincare regime for a healthy, glowing complexion.
Javi: Love yourself. Everything I use on my skin I use because I want to take care of it – it’s a transparent reflection of my wellbeing and health. For me, having that extra ‘me time’ to take care of my skin is an opportunity to plan my day and reflect. 

What’s your favourite skincare product? 
Carolyn: I’m biased, but La Mer Moisturizing Cream – it truly does calm and soothes my skin, both day and night. 
Catalina: Mine would have to be Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream by Sunday Riley – it’s ideal for sensitive and dehydrated skin. 
Javi: Kiehl’s Age Defender Dual-Action Exfoliating Cleanser. It feels amazing and has lava clay in it to exfoliate the skin daily. It also doubles as a face mask to use once a week. 

Tell us what makes you unique… 
Catalina: I speak fluent Italian and I have qualifications in both fashion design and make-up. 
Javi: Before I started in the beauty world, I was a passionate young chef cooking Italian and French food. At home, I go for more Spanish recipes.
