products have been on our radar of late following a recent trip to Jordan, during which we stayed at the Intercontinental who use the products in the rooms. This was the first time we’d used Elemis and we were so impressed we thought we’d try out one of the facials.

The flagship Elemis salon is located in Mayfair just of Bond Street in a quaint little alley which feels a million miles away from the crowded shopping areas just around the corner. We opted for the Modern Skin Facial which is aimed at women who are finding their skin challenging because of modern day stresses, poor diet and pollution. That would be us then!

Inside the salon feels quite small and very personal and the treatment rooms are modern and inviting. First up the facial starts with a foot cleanse – this is the measure of good treatments in our eyes and works wonders on relaxing the whole body. After the foot cleanse it’s on to the face where the cleansing, toning and exfoliating takes place.

Two masks are applied and whilst they set the therapist gets round to massaging the shoulders and neck before moving on to a full scalp massage…..HEAVEN!! A whole host of other products from serums to moisturisers are lathered on our face throughout the treatment and we were so relaxed we had a little doze.

After the facial the therapist recommended a skincare routine and we were left with plump, bright, clearer skin. All in all one of the best facials we’ve had and one we’d definitely recommend. Oh and they do vouchers…just saying!
