I actually have a science PhD, and have been doing facials for fun and relaxation for 30 years!
I became ill a few years ago, and my skin looked awful. It was so depressing. I looked 20 years older than this recent picture. I had facials, went to the doctors, tried all the products, but none of it worked.
So in frustration, I decided to use all that science knowledge to get myself the skin I wanted, all in a totally non-invasive gentle way.You know what? It didn't take that long.
My skincare journey made me passionate about skincare, and about helping others to have the best skin possible. It made me realise that each person's skin issues are different, and one approach does not work for everyone.
So I started A Touch of Spa, and created my signature facial.
Let’s face it. Beauty treatments can be expensive. When you have one, you want to be sure that you can see and feel the benefit, whatever your age or issues.
Have a look at these clients' photos of before and after a facial and see what can be achieved in a single facial.
This is what clients say about A Touch of Spa:.
Dushy : What a great experience!! Susan spent time analysing my skin before applying a bespoke combination of facial care. I could see the difference straight away. Really good quality service. Will definitely be back!!
Tone : I have been blown away by the professional skin analysis and treatment Susan has done for my daughter. The is truly an expert on skin and how it can change with our lifestyle, what we eat and how we look after it. The change was immediate and so noticeable. I can highly recommend her.
I qualified as a natural scientist more than 35 years ago, then went on to do a science PhD. These qualifications in themselves are unique in beauty salons.
That training enables me to research and choose products across the huge range of available skincare products, and to shortlist those that I believe will work. So A Touch of Spa is not tied to any specific brand of products.
I use my scientific training and knowledge when I examine your skin, when I figure out what is happening there and why. Then I decide on just the right products to use on your skin for your facial. These products I use on your skin are not pre-determined before you come in.
And after your facial, my science knowledge helps me to recommend just the right products for you, to give you the improvements you want to see in your skin.
You get the benefit of all of this when you choose A Touch of Spa for your facial. Here is what clients say:
Wendy s: A great facial from Susan. Her Signature Facial is very luxurious with lots of face and décolletage massage along with custom prescribed products and a lovely relaxing environment. Susan is also a scientist and has more than average knowledge on how the various chemicals and properties of products will react with your skin type. Thoroughly recommend.
Tone said about her own facial: Susan is what I ca😀ll a skin scientist. She really understands skin and what it needs. I have sun skin damage from being a child of the 60's and she is helping me to rejuvenate it and repair the damage. Her knowledge is incredible and it is so much more than a facial. It is an analysis, assessment, treatment and then advice on what to use. After the first session I went home and threw all my skin lotions away. I love the individually tailored products she recommends and my skin does too.
Emily : A fantastic personal experience. Relaxing to say the least. Susan is very knowledgeable and created a facial which was bespoke for my skin. Will be returning and recommending.
In the modern day, grabbing some ‘me’ time is increasingly difficult. And when you do, you just want to relax, enjoy, and feel confident that you will see improvement to your skin when you leave. I aim to do just that at A Touch of Spa. Clients say:
Karina - Susan has fantastic hands! My facial was relaxing and extremely informative. A real in-depth consultation that I have not had anywhere else. Highly recommended!
Frederique : First facial at A Touch of Spa. I had Susan's signature facial. The whole experience was very relaxing and enjoyable. Susan explained to me every step of the treatment. Photos were also taken before and after and the difference was striking. I would recommend this salon.
You do expect a professional service when you come for a facial, and so you should! Just so you know, I am fully qualified, and my qualifications are recognised by BABTAC, which is the British Association of Beauty Therapy & Cosmetology. Clients agree:
Emma: oh my goodness, what an amazing experience! I've been on spa days and had facials before but with those you walk in, and they slap goo on your face. Instead, presented an incredibly detailed inspection of my skin under a bright lamp, and then prescribed a tailor made facial to suit my woefully dry and sun damaged skin. interesting that I've never before been told that my skin is super dry, or that the products I use are not sufficient. Susan was really professional and knowledgeable, and the treatment room is warm and welcoming, and a herbal tea at the end was a nice touch. after a series of delicious smelling things being applied, a blissful face, neck and arm massage and hot towel, I wafted out feeling amazing-and my skin looks really radiant. Definitely recommend-I'm just gutted I live so far away that I can't go monthly!
Eve emailed - very individual approach to what products were used. Susan's facials are wonderful. I have never before had my skin examined so thoroughly, and, as she is not tied to a particular brand or procedure, she creates a truly bespoke facial based on what she observes. Susan has a professional manner and excellent hands; as a result, I come away from her treatments very relaxed, and my skin reflects the benefits for some time afterwards.
