FACIALS

Facials have come a long way over the last decade, and it can be daunting trying to decide what facial to choose if you’re not used to booking them. If you don’t know where to start or you have questions before making your booking, pick up the phone and get in touch and we’ll be happy to help you through the process. Our faces are a focal point, and the first thing to be seen so feeling happy with your skin contributes massively to your self-confidence, so it’s important to look after it. It doesn’t have to be complicated, we just need to find what works for your skin and your lifestyle and once you get into a routine the benefits can be astounding. 

Manual facials…

We use Potionshop UK for our Classic “manual facials” (meaning no machines). They are a clean, vegan, organic and eco-friendly brand made right here in Manchester. They don’t have a long shelf-life like some big brands but this means they also contain effective, higher active ingredients. To know more about Potionshop UK, visit the dropdown further down.

Microdermabrasion facials

If you’d like something that goes a bit deeper, but still non-invasive and natural, visit our Microdermabrasion page to find out more.

Get ready!

One of the best things you can do before your facial appointment is to leave it all to us. Don’t try to exfoliate before arriving, don’t try to extract any blackheads – we’ll get your skin looking and feeling great. There are a few pointers to take note of ahead of time:

  • The week before your appointment, avoid any strong facial treatments and cease the use of any exfoliation products a few days prior, as we will be performing a deep exfoliation as part of your treatment
  • Try to avoid prolonged exposure to strong sunlight / sun beds for at least five days before your facial.
  • On the day of your facial, wear some comfortable clothing that you can easily relax in. If your facial includes a neck & shoulder massage, you will be asked to remove any jewelry and clothing / bra straps from around the neck & shoulder areas. Choose clothing that is easy to change in and out of.

If you are unsure about any of the above, speak to our skincare specialists about any concerns. A full consultation will be given prior to any facial treatments.

What next…

Here’s a few pointers to help you keep your face feeling fresh until your next appointment is due.

  • Avoid wearing make-up for at least 6 hours after your facial treatment. If you must, use mineral based make-up.
  • Avoid direct heat (intense sunlight or sunbeds) and indirect heat (saunas, hot baths or showers) for 48 hours after treatment
  • Apply suncream with a minimum SPF rating of 30 to protect the skin from harmful rays that can dehydrate, cause sun damage / sunspots and age the skin
  • Do not apply any other exfoliating skincare products or undertake another facial treatment for 72 hours after your facial
  • Cleanse, tone & moisturise daily. This keeps your face free from grime / pollution, balances your PH levels and prevents dehydrated skin keeping it soft and supple
  • It is very important to remove all make-up at the end of each day, as it can cause extensive damage to your skin overnight. Your skin attempts to rejuvenate during your sleep, but make-up severely hinders this process.
  • Do not apply perfume or perfumed products to the treated area within 48 hours
  • Drink plenty of water! The recommended daily guideline is 2 – 3 litres per day. Your skin is made up of 64% water, and it only takes a small amount of dehydration to stop the cells from performing their best, so skin can become tight, dry or flaky if unnourished. 

Handmade in Manchester, vegan, organic and cruelty-free. Potionshop products are tested and certified for their quality and safety. All products are selected to suit your face-body including: sensitive, oily, combination and even nut-free. A therapist will go through a consultation with you prior to your facial treatment.

Effective active ingredients

Ingredients taken from nature are almost similar to those produced by the body. Although Potionshop products contain on average 80-90% active ingredients, yet opposite to that of high street and artificial brands can contain on average less than 10%.

Organic while safe

Potionshop does not use chemical or synthetic ingredients in any of our products. Such ingredients include but are not limited to: alcohol and artificial fragrances. As a result, this makes the products suitable for sensitive skin.

Free from animal testing

Clients can rest assured the love for our furry friends ensures we agree to abide by the EU laws passed in March 2013. In conclusion, this made it illegal to sell animal-tested cosmetics in Europe.

Free from animal ingredients

Potionshop products contain no animal ingredients or animal by-products such as beeswax or honey which is why we are especially proud to be Vegan.

Sustainable resources only

Firstly, our ingredients are sourced from sustainable resources only, most of all our palm kernel oils which are also certified.

Environmentally friendly

Whilst also being sustainable, reducing our environmental impact by ‘Going Green’ is yet another key component. Due to organic farming, it subsequently makes it safer for wildlife. Because it produces less pollution, as a result, there is less dangerous waste. In addition to that the organic products are chemical free. As a result, it reduces chemicals being washed down our drains and into our water supply. What is most noteworthy and in addition, the packaging is either recyclable and or reusable.

Awards

Potionshop are proud to be awarded the Gold for Green Impact award.
