Gina Conway Aveda Facial

Writing a beauty blog, you might expect my skin care ritual to be long winded and self indulgent. However, working full time, blogging and wedding planning, my skin is often neglected. Luckily the gorgeous Alexis from Gina Conway invited me to their Wimbledon Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spa for a bit of pampering.

Reception at the Wimbledon Lifestyle Salon and Spa

After a quick questionnaire I was taken to one of the treatment rooms, where I slipped into a dressing gown, sipped my coffee and soaked my tooties while my therapist Lorenza chatted to me about what I wanted from my treatment.
The lovely Lorenza recommended their Aveda Skin Renewing facial to promote firmness and reduce the appearance of fine lines using a 5 phase massage and the Aveda Tourmaline skincare range. As Aveda's products are all made using the purest ingredients infused with organically grown flower and plant extracts, I was in for a treat.

The products all smelt and felt fabulous whilst being applied with high precision, I really felt like I was in the hands of an expert. Whilst the mask stages were applied Lorenza massaged my shoulders, neck and scalp and with her healing hands the knots and tightness melted away.

how beautiful are the treatment rooms!
The only un-enjoyable process was the extraction (which I had asked for!) of tiny white spots I get around my eye area and find near impossible to remove myself without severe swelling. These were eliminated with a tiny needle and soothing oils were used to prevent inflammation. Whist I did have little red dots where the extraction had occurred when leaving the spa, this morning they have faded away - well worth it.

My skin felt dewy, plumped out, radiant and most of all, thoroughly spoilt. The spa and salon is stunning and I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

The hour long Skin renewing Facial with Lorenza is £78 (from £73 with other therapists), and a promotion is currently running where you can save £20 off any treatment over £50. Spa treatments are also available at the Westbourne, Fulham and Chelsea spas. See website for details.

Aveda Tourmaline range is available to buy at all Gina Conway Aveda Salons.
