While I was being super lucky the other week - you know having a cut and colour at FOUR London, and swishing around like a famous person - I was also treated to THE most amazing facial I have ever experienced!
Basically I met the wonderful Marie Reynolds who is the Director of Education for Eve Taylor Professional Skin Care, and it was at this point I realised I was in for a real treat.
Eve Taylor treatments are holistic, which I am sure you know means that you are treated as a whole, and not in part, and this was my first experience of the holistic approach. Exciting!
The facial starts with the 'Systems of Analysis' technique. This is a 10-15 minute pre treatment consultation, where Marie looked at my face, feet and ears and then started telling me uncannily accurate things about my lifestyle and personality. It was so amazing that it really got me giggling! Really fascinating.
Eve Taylor herself actually received an OBE for this pioneering work in aromatherapy.
Apparently study of these areas reveals insights into the stomach; liver; hormonal; lung and elimination conditions and Marie was able to accurately pin-point my weakness’ and strengths and then tailor the treatment to these.
***WARNING - I am about to start gushing and go a little over the top, but bear with me, I will try to contain myself!***
Things then get a bit harder to remember, as throughout the treatment I floated in and out of consciousness, in a blissful haze of gorgeous smells and amazing massage and wonderful serenity! (I did warn you!).
At the end of it I was literally floating on air. I had reached a level of relaxation that is practically unknown to me, and my skin felt softer than I ever remember it feeling. And it glowed too.
This is me after the treatment, with no makeup on my skin, just a little around the eyes.
It was like brand new skin had been revealed. I even felt happy going out for the evening with my naked face!! Check me out!
I honestly cannot recommend this treatment enough. It was beyond gorgeous.
