Recently I visited Vanity Box Beauty Ateliers for the very first time. On my arrival I was greeted by two beautiful, happy smiling faces – owner / operator Suzey and senior therapist Elodie who immediately welcomed me to the stunning salon which is both glamorous and relaxing. There is so much attention to detail; from the stunning decor, scented organic candles burning, delicious T2 tea and French music softly playing. It’s a sanctuary for all the senses.
Elodie was looking after me, and I would have paid money just to listen to her fabulous French accent. Swoon! She did all of her training in Paris and you can tell right away that she’s passionate about what she does, explaining to me that Vanity Box is an ‘atelier’ which is French for ‘a place where artists work’. Once she started my facial, I understood exactly what she meant. I drifted off, my stress melting away. The whole process was the perfect balance of being asked if I was comfortable and being left to just relax and enjoy the moment. It was pure indulgence. I loved that while my Priori masque was on I was given a shoulder, arm and hand massage and once my facial was complete, light mineral make up was applied ensuring I could confidently leave the salon ready to face the world.
Next, I was trying eyelash extensions for the very first time. Elodie paid great attention to detail, explaining the whole process and made it so relaxing. I was amazed at the results! It was such a treat to have beautiful, long, natural looking lashes without having to use any mascara.
Vanity Box is the place to go if you need time out in a luxurious sanctuary. A space to escape, be pampered and indulged, to completely relax and unwind. I floated out of Vanity Box with a beautiful organic home candle in hand, feeling rejuvenated and ready for the rest of my busy day. It was like I’d been on a little holiday in the space of just a few hours. Heaven.
Vanity Box provides a range of bespoke treatments from facials, deep tissue and hot stone massage, waxing, specialist eyebrow shaping, special occasion make up, manicures and pedicures and they also have gelish, a permanent nail polish which I love!
I can’t wait to head back to Vanity Box and experience one of Suzey’s famous deep tissue massage treatments. Bliss!
