Perfect 10 Mobile Beauty (At home beauty salon service!)

Have you always felt utterly stupid driving your way back home after a relaxing massage or even worse, taking the superbly unhygienic tube, rattling your way home holding that scruffy pole until you are finally awake and most of the effects of the facial or a manicure have evaporated in thin air?

This might sound slightly exaggerated to some who are lucky enough to find their favourite beauty salon a walk down the street. But for most Londoners out here, especially the ones who do not live in Central London, are far away from luxurious spas as such.

Here comes Perfect 10 Mobile Beauty like a knight in shining armour (or a spotty pink mini cooper in this case!) to rescue the beauty damsel in distress. Brain child of Claire Aggarwal, this is till date the best beauty concept I have come across during my stay in London. What they do is basically to provide a handful of beauty and skincare services in the comfort of your home, 7.30am to 9.30pm, seven days a week I believe. The therapists have personally been trained by Claire who makes sure they are of the highest standards. 

I opted for an Elemental Herbology Facial which is £75 for 1 hour and 15 minutes, although I am pretty sure it lasted more than that surprisingly. I choose a lazy afternoon when I usually take a lunch break from my home office to get some pampering done. My therapist was Lauren who had a chirpy and warm personality with an exotic New Zealand accent that never fails to leave me in awe. After getting to know my skin concerns and its current condition, she choose to hydrate it immensely, concentrating on congested areas and blocked pores alongside treating the oily areas of the face as well.

It was quite fascinating to see her set up an entire spa in a room at my place with candles lit, soothing music on an iPad, blinds shut, heated towels and blanket and a full fledged massage bed! I have to say the Elemental Herbology products smelled delicious and played a huge role in enhancing the atmosphere leaving me tempted to purchase a few for myself. What I absolutely loved was that the Facial focused on overall well being rather than just achieving a pretty face hence also including a superbly effective foot, head and shoulder massage. 

I am pleased to report that despite being a light sleeper otherwise, the Facial literally put me to sleep and left my skin tremendously glowing, baby soft and velvety smooth for days as if I had just come back from a yoga retreat. I didn't feel like wearing any make-up at all for days which is huge for someone like me who wouldn't leave the house without a slap of foundation. I even received a loyalty card which will give me a free manicure after indulging in just 3 more services from them. 

Now I am not a huge spender when it comes to spoiling myself with spa services as such but it left me tempted to gift one to my sister and my mum for an occasion or if not, they even provide event packages including mini facials and file & paint which I found perfect for something like a girls night in.
