My 5 Favourite Natural Facials in London

My 5 Favourite Natural Facials in London

I love facials, there is nothing better then getting a good facial, you walk out relaxed, polished and glowing. I am a big fan of natural skin care and so I thought I would share with you my 4 favourite natural facials in London – my home!

1. Abigail James

Facial of choice: Wow Factor Facial

Abigail is the dream. Her skin is unbelievable and you would never guess she has a teenage daughter.
I go for the wow factor facial, maybe because of the name :)
She blends together sculpting massage methods with cutting edge aesthetic technology. Abigail really looks at your skin, she asks about your diet, stress levels and really creates a facial to get the results that you want.

You walk out the door feeling happy, calm and like a new women.

Perfect for: A big event

2. Pfeffer Sal

Facial of choice: Glow and Go

This little hide away from soho is the absolute dream. Another fab name and experience. You are led into a nice warm bed and made to feel so comfortable. I love this facial as its only 60 minutes so great on the go and it makes you look like you have slept for hours. This facial is super restorative and enlightened me to the amazingness of hyaluronic acid (which boost collagen and plump cells – yay). Pfeffer focuses on hydration which is always needed in winter! The double cleanse and facial massage, leaves you looking fresher and more youthful.

Perfect for: A good spring clean

3. Content Beauty

Facial of choice: Natural Lift Facial Massage

This facial is perfect if you are a bit of a hippy like me. This Facial Massage blends Ayurveda massage, acupressure, facial reflexology techniques and lymphatic drainage using organic, regenerative serums and energy mists. There is nothing better than having a face massage and you really see the results from it. The massage is performed using a range of facial reflexology techniques and lymphatic drainage which helps eliminate toxins.

4. One Aldwych hotel

Facial of choice: Calming Facial

This amazing hotel has an incredible below ground spa, it’s like a total retreat from the chaos of London. The staff are so unbelievably welcoming and you can even eat at their deliciously healthy restaurant after. The facial is so relaxing I actually fell asleep during it. If you get red skin this facial is perfect. It’s very calming and helps balance uneven skin tone. It is also so relaxing, you float off to the calming music and warm bed waking to a new you.

Perfect for: Relaxation

5. Origins Feel Good Mini Facial

Facial of choice: Origins feel good mini facial

Origins has a range of express facials, but my favourite is the feel good facial. It does exactly what is says…it makes you feel good! My face always feel so clean afterwards, and it’s targeted to your specific skin concerns – the ultimate pamper for your skin. Origins offer facials at any of their beauty counters, not just in London, but around the UK. The best part – it’s totally free and you can take home custom samples of your mini-facial favourites!

Perfect for: Express facial on-the-go
