This weekend I was a VERY lucky beauty blogger, as I was invited to visit the Neville Salon, a lovely upmarket salon in swanky Belgravia. So, since I’m not a complete mug I jumped at the chance – and so found myself wandering down Sloane Street on a gorgeous sunny Saturday, past Chanel, YSL et al… on my way to an hour and a half of pure pampering bliss.
Arriving at Neville, I was directed up to the second floor. Past two very busy hair salon floors to a lovely peaceful landing. On arrival I was greeted by my beauty therapist and ushered into the treatment room.
The room was spacious and quiet, with a plush treatment bed for me to lay down on. I have never experienced such comfort as part of a beauty treatment. The bed was practically more comfortable than the bed I have at home – complete with duvet rather than the usual thin sheet.
I was already feeling pretty pampered and the treatment hadn’t even begun yet. The treatment I was about to enjoy was the ‘Golden Touch Facial’, described as:
“a luxurious and indulgent treatment which is as rare and as precious as the pearls and gold it uses. Using crushed freshwater pearls and real gold which makes your skin shimmer instantly, this treatment is the ultimate in opulence. The facial revitalises the skin through the calcium in the pearls and gives you an immediate glow.”
After being left to relax/set for a while, the mask was peeled off (all in one go – like a plaster cast model). My skin was again, cleansed and toned and now moisturised – marking the end of the most luxurious treatment I have ever experienced.
When I got to look in the mirror, I was absolutely amazed at how soft, smooth and clear my skin looked. Yes, I was totally make-up free – so the dark circles were on full display. But blackheads that I felt I had for so long they were practically old friends had vanished. Amazing.
On Sunday, my skin still felt amazing – soft, smooth and generally wonderful. I was happy to go out practically make-up free (with just a slick of mascara and dab of under-eye concealer) both because it would be good for my skin and because it just felt so darn lovely it would have been a waste to cover it up with slap!
So, overall – this treatment was absolute luxury and I felt like an absolute princess the whole way through
But, priced at £150, the Golden Touch facial really is a luxury treatment. I would think this would be perfect if you were looking for a special occasion, or preparing to get married or something where you really want to look your best.
But having said that, I am totally convinced that microdermabrasion is an amazing treatment. I’m planning to book myself in for an all-over body treatment before I go away on holiday in a few weeks. I’m hoping this will work wonders on my upper arms in particular, where I suffer from keratosis pilaris.
