Beauty Salon in Torquay offers a wide range of beauty and skincare treatments from nail
care, waxing, lash and brow treatments, massages and beauty packages. I was on
my way to experience a luxury facial priced at £40 and lasting for an hour. The
facial includes cleansing toning and exfoliation, steam treatment and
extraction, a mask and moisturiser, eyebrow tidy, face neck, shoulder and back
massage finished off with an arm and hand massage.
The first thing
that struck me about the salon was the décor, calm colours and modern chic
combine to give a feeling of luxury and comfort, the warm welcome from the
staff was the start to my relaxation process, and on being introduced to Lisa,
who was to be my therapist for the next hour, her friendly and cheerful manner
put me at ease right away.
The therapy room
continues the warm colour theme and was complimented with candles and relaxing
music. Lisa started with by asking me questions regarding my skin type, any
problems I had and what I wanted to achieve from the facial. Having one of
those annoying combinations of oily and dry areas and a tendency to break out
like a teenager when stressed, it's hard for me to get my skincare regime right
at time, but Lisa seemed un phased and assured me I was not alone.

natural beauty as well as the aromatherapy properties to restore body and mind.
Now I know some
people like to shut and up and enjoy the relaxation, but I'm a talker, and Lisa
was more than happy to offer advice and troubleshooting tips for some of my
skin issues, however after about 20 minutes of exfoliation, buffing and
inhaling the gorgeous smells I had relaxed into silence and closed my eyes to
enjoy the massages and the music.
treatment my skin felt firm, moisturised and revitalised, some facials can leave
my skin feeling too tight and a little raw, and I am happy to say I did not
have the normal "breakout" the next day either.
Overall I would
recommend the luxury facial and will certainly be returning for more treatments.
