Ill with sinusitis, I cancelled a Guinot Hydradermie2 Facial that I had been invited to try at Guinot’s London flagship salon on Albemarle Street. To avoid pressure on my face my treatment was changed to their Aromatic Body Softening Treatment which is designed for those in need of some TLC – exactly what I wanted and needed.
I was shown to their ‘Virginia Water’ treatment room – a lovely coincidence as Virginia Water is my hometown – and I was scrubbed and massaged and moisturised. I can be neglectful when it comes to home body scrubbing, and the exfoliator that Guinot use in the softening treatment – their Sugar Kiwi Body Scrub that contains white and brown sugar, kiwi seeds, and salt – is gritty and energising.
The second half of the treatment involves a relaxing massage using an oil blend of lavender and marjoram- and I was so soothed and relaxed – that I fell into a deep sleep. My skin was left radiant and nourished, and I as much as I didn’t want the treatment to end, an hour of pampering was exactly what I needed.

Favourite Guinot Products –
It is always recommended that you go to your nearest Guinot salon to buy products that are recommended for you.
1) Guinot Hydra Bronze Moisturising Lotion 200ml
I love this moisturising daily tanner – it gives a healthy natural glow – and can be used on face as well as body. My skin always feels silky soft after application, and I usually wait 5 minutes before dressing.
2) Guinot Instant Radiance Moisturising Masque 50ml
This is Guinot’s best selling, arguably most talked about product. It has an army of fans – and is a favourite of make up artists who want to give client’s skin a boost before make up application. Apply the super nourishing instant radiance masque for 10 minutes and remove with a warm face cloth – it gives skin an instant boost. I used the masque this morning after coming off a long haul flight to push some moisture back in to my skin.
3) Guinot Instant Radiance Vials
Apply to the skin before a special occasion or when skin is particularly tired – over moisturiser and under make up. Can be used up close to the eye. Apply make up immediately. These powerful vials are designed to tighten and smooth the skin, whilst adding luminosity.
