I love a good facial – which beauty fan doesn’t? I’m a firm believer that facials are the perfect way to tackle ageing skin, without injecting things into it. So, I was delighted to try the newest Guinot facial at a wee salon near me in Edinburgh, Moi Beauty, who are a Guinot Crown Salon – that means they are in top ten percent of Guinot’s highest achieving salons in the UK and Ireland. Not bad!
The new facial – exclusive to Crown salons to begin – and Moi are one of only two salons in Edinburgh to offer this new facial from Guinot – is called the Guinot Age Summum facial. It’s an anti-ageing facial, lasting for an hour, and treating all signs of ageing, using pure vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and pro-collagen.
It is probably meant for more mature skin types, but I don’t see any harm in anti-ageing treatments after the age of 30 – and I’m more than a few years past that landmark! The facial includes a 10 minute lifting massage, which helps to restore radiance, and regenerate and firm the skin.
There are a lot of products applied during the facial, the only one removed, the exfoliator at the start. Everything else is massaged into the skin. I absolutely loved this facial. It was interesting, and the latter part really relaxing.
The amazingly comfortable bed, cosy duvet warmth in the treatment room at Moi probably also contributed to my absolutely relaxed state of mind following my facial. I was almost dizzy when I had to get up, I was so relaxed. And my skin felt – and looked – incredible. I popped on a little lipstick and mascara to head to Waitrose on the way home, but I was amazed at just how glowing, and fresh my skin looked.
Guinot recommend a course of three facials and I can see why you would want to go back after the first one, I certainly do.
The new Guinot Age Summum facial is £75, but there is an introductory offer on at Moi Beauty at the moment of £60. For more info and to book, visit moibeauty.co.uk, or call 0131 629 4532/0131 447 6611. Find the salon at 28 Comiston Road, Edinburgh, EH10 5QE
