The position of her salon is a great London destination and a real hidden secret, within walking distance of Butler & Wilson on the Fulham Road with its designer shops. You know you've arrived at her clinic when you can’t find it because it’s so exclusive, it’s a door in a wall.
Upon entering the clinic, Sarah has made it a real home from home experience with three inviting treatment rooms all dressed in her favourite taupe and white, of course. Both Sarah and her facial specialists take appointments 7 days a week and will work around opening times to often suit their VIP and celeb clients' diaries so they very much offer a bespoke appointment service as well as a bespoke skin treatment service.
Once you're within your treatment room and a consultation has taken place, you're invited to lie on a sumptuous bed and look across at the antique mirrors, ornate fireplace or sophisticated chandelier in the ceiling whilst being surrounded, not just by the expected Skinesis products but by some of the most advanced facialist machines available in Europe.
What makes Sarah’s facials different is that there is no one facial the same as she believes that there is no client the same and there is no ‘basic facial’ which is fabulous for the skincare connoisseur or for someone looking for more than just a normal result.
Her facials are adapted to individual needs and as well as her Skinesis products she has had her own clinic strength formulations made for peels and advanced treatment procedures, plus the ability to incorporate many machines, some of which have been imported from America and are also used in doctors' clinics to stimulate collagen, reduce wrinkles, take away broken capillaries etc. so the machines can go deeper and work on a more permanent basis to give clinical results in addition to beauty results.
The reason I'm emphasising the different services and procedures that both Sarah and her handpicked team of girls provide, is to give you an insight into why Sarah created her product line which we are showcasing in the TSV, launching at midnight on the 29th April. She wanted to create and has successfully done so, a high-end, luxurious, high performance product line that is like no other, as on a day-to-day basis, she is working and looking at modern day skins both of British, European and international clients and their concerns.
So, with this forward-thinking, results-driven, ‘face to formula’ approach, Sarah is the founder/inventor of both the facial and the home product line. For example, she challenged the chemists into designing and putting in high percentages of actives into one product that had previously maybe been made in two or three separate products while still keeping the effectiveness and potency of each family of ingredients and at the clinical strength that a patented ingredient had been proven to work at.
This meant that when Sarah tested the products, within the facial environment, she could check not just the effectiveness of the results but also the ease and luxury of the formula from an application and pleasure point of view. Her resulting product line is the same as her facial – completely unique, thorough, enjoyable and top of the range.
The Today’s Special Value collection is Sarah’s first one so we wanted to choose a collaboration of products and salon techniques that you could apply to your skin at home to be able to mirror a Chelsea clinic appointment. This set will suit you if you are looking to gain a more energised, brighter, hydrated, softer and more anti-aged looking skin. For the first time in 20 years, it is a TSV that gives you a facial massage appliance with the corresponding skincare products.
I feel sure you will love the smells and the textures which are very refined, silky and smooth, and which mean that her products go a long way so are therefore economical to use and if you do, in the future, have the opportunity to visit Sarah or one of her therapists for an appointment, and have previously been disappointed by facials that appear to do little more than what, as an advanced skincare user yourself can do at home, then you certainly wont be disappointed! You will feel that your face has had a gymnastic workout and will be able to have the opportunity to have some advanced clinic problem solving results if you so wish to do so.
