The Promise
A quick but thorough cleanse to deeply clean the skin, remove blackheads and soothe.

Step by Step

Beauty Box is a pleasant contrast to the mall outside, with bright white interiors and soothing spa-style music. We are offered tea and shown to the treatment room where we lie down under a fluffy duvet cover. We’re asked some questions about our skin and any issues we’ve been having and then the treatment begins with a series of cleansing creams. Each is applied with a soft massage and removed with warm water and cotton pads. After a very light exfoliation, our therapist does a few quick (and thankfully painless) extractions before finishing with a light moisturiser.

The Result
Our skin feels clean and refreshed and, despite the facial being just 30 minutes long, we feel pretty relaxed, too.

Pros
Beauty Box uses Yon-Ka Paris products which smell delicous and feel lovely, smooth and light on the skin. The treatment is quick and easy and the therapist takes some time post-facial to recommend treatments and tests that may help with your skin type.

Cons
Though the venue is quiet, noise from the mall still creeps in so don’t expect complete silence.
