Hackney facials?

Hmn that sounds ever so slightly dodge, but just wondering if the power of the internet will dredge up any recommendations for seriously good beauty places in Hackney or around… this is something that has eluded me so far. Most that look really good seem to be in West London. Thanks!


  1. I went to http://www.shineholistic.co.uk/ a couple of times and really enjoyed it (had a facial), they are on Church St in Stoke Newington. It’s not cheap, but worth it.

  2. Thanks @saladefolle I’ve been past that on the bus actually so will check it out.

  3. the prices don’t look too bad, I might try it out

  4. Just got this Groupon deal:Six Rejuvenating Microdermabrasion Session at Pasha Clinic, Green Lanes N16 for £45 instead of £235 – http://www.groupon.co.uk/deals/london/PashaClinc/214472Does anyone know anything about them?

  5. It’s got some pretty mixed reviews but the ones specifically about microdermabrasion seem to be ok. I’m looking for a course of miracle working facials ahead of wedding in June so the price for the course seems tempting but booked into Shine to see how that goes first.”

  6. @e8yim I’d be interested to know how it goes

  7. Will let you know – a friend has also just told me that the Virgin Active gym Heaven V spa in Old Street is doing Medispa (MF formulation/Bare Escentuals) facials for £27.50 from next week. These are exfoliating facials apparently and you don’t need to be a member.

  8. Ended up postponing this facial till the weekend just gone as I’ve been working for a client on Luton(!) for the last month. I went to Shine on the Green and it was really really lovely, v chilled and friendly but also provide effective treatments. I had a facial (£55) and a deep tissue massage with Beth (£55 for an hour). The massage in particular was really worth it – it’s a proper deep massage which some might not like, as it’s not so much relaxing, but really worked stiff shoulders and neck muscles gained from working in a cold aircraft hangar! Beth obviously knew her stuff and think she does thai massage too. Ask for Beth Dorey.

  9. @e8yim oh sounds good – I’ll keep them in mind 🙂
