Hydrafacial at Premier Laser Clinic (London Only)

There are few things I look forward to more than a really good facial, especially since my skin stopped being a big mass of spots, so I can now receive facials knowing that they'll be designed to do more than address my acne.  I've had Hydrafacials before, and I've always loved them because they provide all the things I like in a format that's relaxing and comfortable, yet still very results driven.  Therefore, when I was invited along to Premie[...]

Omorovicza Facial at Liberty London

Every time I pop in to Liberty London I'm reminded of just how fabulous their beauty space is - honestly, it's just a haven of luxury beauty, unusual finds and covetable launches, making it an ideal venue for Omorovicza and all their glorious skincare joy.  They've (fairly) recently started offering facials as part of their position at Liberty London, so I popped along for a Deep Cleansing Facial with Kasia - a facialist with impressive skincare[...]


Elemis Touch Facial at House of Elemis

The second I heard that there was a House of Elemis launching in London, I knew it would be somewhere that offered an amazingly pampering experience with attention to every detail, and I don't want to brag or anything, but I was absolutely right.  A quick search on this blog will tell you how much I love Elemis - their products are effective, brilliantly formulated and just the right side of pampering - skincare lovers love Elemis. There a[...]

Deep Tissue Lift Facial with Mina Lee

The Deep Tissue Lift Facial is nicknamed the "Facial to Remember" and with good reason! It is literally 90 minutes of blissful, deep massage, masks and hot towels; it is about as pampering as you can get within a facial whilst still being surprisingly impactful on overall skin condition.  Long-term readers may remember I had a facial with Mina as part of my introduction to the awesome Biologique Recherche range (here's the post if you need a refr[...]


Environ Facial and Skincare Prescription

If you've read my blog for any length of time you'll know of my skincare battles and woes.  I have spot-prone skin that's prone to dehydration, and recently I've had a bit of a skincare epiphany which pretty much resulted in the realisation that my skin is suffering from it's own constant conflict between trying to produce more oil to help with the dehydration whilst battling the spot-fighting products I've been throwing it at that may reduce spo[...]

Erno Laszlo Facial at Harrods

Yesterday was one of those 'pinch me, I'm dreaming" days as it was literally a day of pure, indulgent pleasure.  I started with a visit to my local nail parlour for a manicure and pedicure, then I was taken for a lovely Afternoon Tea at House of Fraser by Team Simple before finishing at Harrods for a once in a lifetime facial with the amazing Head Therapist from New York's Erno Laszlo Institute.  Not a bad way to spend a day, don't you think? Th[...]


Triple Threat Facials: Stage Two (the purifiers)

As discussed in my Stage One post here, there are three stages to the Triple Threat Facial; exfoliate, purify and moisturise.  Here are three of my favourite fabulous, purifying masks that I find the best for the second stage of the TTF: Elemis Herbal Lavender Repair Mask I'm starting with this one as it's the most gentle of the three; a soothing and calming mask that is great if your skin is tricky, sensitive or tends to react to harsher pro[...]

Total Detox Facial at the Debenhams Elemis Skin Lounge

Both my skin and my general desire have been *crying out* for a decent facial as it has been such a long time since I've had one.  I was invited along to have an Elemis facial at Debenhams and I'll admit that I was a bit unsure about the concept of having a facial in a shopping centre; mainly because I have terrible skin at the moment and didn't fancy having all my make-up removed before walking out into a terrifyingly brightly lit shopping centr[...]
