Training Centre: London

Holly Phillips

"I studied beauty therapy at Chichester college, where I also did a media and special effects make up course. I learnt so many amazing techniques like camouflage make-up and Prosthetics!

My first job was as a Beauty Therapist at Arches Health and Beauty. This was where I was lucky enough, to be introduced to all 3 brands and very quickly fell in love with the products and had regular clients coming to see me for facials I also became the top seller in the salon for skin! It was during my time at the salon that I was so inspired by the Iiaa training I knew, ultimately I wanted to become a trainer and inspire others!

It was then, with the support of my salon owner, I landed myself a job as a skincare specialist for iiaa at Harvey Nichols, I moved all the way to London on my own to start my dream and start my journey with the company. 

My passion for the brands really helped me to sell the products to new clients at HN. I also did detailed skin analysis with a Visia machine to track clients amazing results...and I really do mean amazing! After a year, I decided it only felt right to apply to be a trainer for iiaa and here I am, landed myself my dream job! I’m an honest believer in achieving any goal you want if your heart is in it!"

What inspires you to train?
"My passion is to inspire others, just like I was! Also seeing a therapist grow into being confident in helping people with their skin. You only get one skin and working with a brand that not only changes that, but can also change some people lives! For me, that is why I love my job so much. I want to spread the word on environ as far as I can!!"

What is your desert island product?
"My desert island product would be environs RAD SPF 15. I think this product is so important to try and look young forever, as we know the sun is the biggest factor in ageing! I love fact is reflects the bad rays, absorbs what your skin needs and also has a brigade of antioxidants for further protection. 

I also couldn’t live without my jane iredale PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation in Golden Glow for quick effortless coverage!"
