I was very lucky to be invited to enjoy a treatment at Face Place L.A’s most sought after facial which has just landed in London at The Rosewood Hotel Sense Spa. I arrived on a Monday morning in May (not my typical start to the week) meeting a friend there who’s slot was booked in just before mine.
On arrival I was shown to the relaxing Sense Spa which is a zen like theme all cosy with dim lighting, bamboo walls, luxurious loungers with fluffy white towels and blankets, a reading light, soft relaxing background music (not elevator like at all) ample magazines and jugs of cucumber infused water. A real getaway from London life. Once I slipped off my shoes and relaxed back into the bed while I awaited my appointment I knew I was in for a treat…
My friend appeared shortly post her treatment looking somewhat warm and fuzzy, relaxed with glowy skin!
Now it was my turn, my therapist Rowan come to collect me. She’s very warm and welcoming, very knowledgable and I know how this sounds – she’s great with her hands!
She explained what the signature facial is and how it works and asked me some questions about my current skin care, tucking me in to some luxurious silky covers she got to work!
The facial lasts for 1hour 15mins, a warm towel was placed behind my neck, cleansing begins and a little hoover that sucks all the dead skin cells, and then the extractions!!! Wow she is good and it’s all painlessly performed to perfection. Rowan explained she was layering Yukka Root infused warm cloths and applies a face mask, when I say mask I don’t mean a cream I mean a leather cone which acts like a mini sauna for 10 mins. Followed by some misting and luxurious face creams then more layering of warm cloths which makes you feel a bit mummified but getting you ready for the galvanic current treatment.
Another mask is placed round your head, this time it’s “the” Galvanic Mask it looks a little strange, it’s brown leather with wires hanging from it, however Rowan gently talks you through each step. The mask is on for about 15mins to let the galvanic current do it’s thing, Rowan changed the bed position so your legs are elevated to ensure blood flow to your head. I relax close my eyes and enjoy while Rowan gave me an arm and hand massage, this is bliss! After removing the mask and wraps Rowan finishes with some more creams and on-going advice with a skin care prescription.
The results…when I sat up and Rowan handed me the mirror and I cannot believe the results, I actually say out loud oh wow! Firstly I look about 12! So young fresh faced, plump, bright and glowy and in no hurry to apply make up! Rowan is really pleased with the results too and cannot believe I’m turning 40 this month.
I cannot recommend this treatment enough, it’s a “it really works” and you see instant results experience.
Face Place Signature Treatment delivers on it’s promise and in my case resulting in younger looking skin, tighter pores, this collagen boosting treatment worked for me. Apparently it gets even better each time you visit.
I really enjoyed every moment and in such a beautiful location it felt extra special. We finished off our session with a delicious light brunch at the hotels Holborn Delicatessen before heading off home to get on with my Monday day off housework tasks! Oh well it was good while it lasted.
