We get a Complete Facial high above the skyline at Guerlain Alfardan Spa.

The promise
To revive devitalised skin and provide you with enough moisture to see you through the week.

Step by step
My trouble has always been sensitive and dry skin so my therapist tried to target these issues. It starts with a facial steam while the therapist massages your hands and immerses them in paraffin. Then there’s an exfoliation followed by extraction. The therapist gives you an exclusive 19-minute Guerlain facial massage with an active skincare concentrate and rounds this all off with a cleansing facial mask. As the mask is left to do its work, your therapist will give you a relaxing scalp massage. To finish, your hands are released from their paraffin gloves and cleanser, toner, booster and moisturiser are applied to your face.

Pros
• The facial is completely customised to meet your needs
• Added extras like make-up and perfume at the end of the treatment are a unique touch
• The views from the 40th floor of Al Fardan Towers are epic

Cons
• It is pricey as you’re paying for Guerlain products and expertise

The verdict
The spa is lovely and well worth a visit for a treatment, and a membership as the facilities are good. The therapists are all very friendly and clued up on their products, as well as their profession, offering tips and tricks for you to take home.
