We sent some willing volunteers down to our stores to try the Clarins Spa Treatment…


From the moment I walked over to the Clarins counter in House of Fraser Guildford I felt like a VIP. My treatment was for a facial and I was immediately made to feel relaxed. The therapist was lovely and gentle and I was even treated to a shoulder, neck and head massage. My eyes were covered and calming music was played so inevitably I drifted off. The smells were incredible – a floral yet spicy scent,Ai?? and before I knew it an hour had passed. My skin felt amazing, soft and subtle. I was so pleased with how I felt, I completely forgot where I was and walked out of the spa with no make up on… so I was kindly taken to the Clarins counter and was treated to a touch up of BB Cream. I was so pleased with the service and treatment I even purchased the Clarins Pure and Radiant Mask. Iai??i??m checking dates for when to book in my next one!

I booked in for a Clarins facial treatment at the House of Fraser Guildford store. I headed to the Clarins counter and was taken to a spa area, tucked away from the main beauty hall. I was introduced to Rachel who led me to the treatment room and explained the treatment elements to me – who would have thought a foot, scalp and hand massage would come with a facial treatment. Amazing added relaxation bonuses. I instantly felt relaxed with Rachel’s professional and polite tone, the soothing music and relaxing scents (i love the smell of Clarins Eau Dynamisante) within the room. The various applications and use of facial products were all cooling and refreshing on my tired skin. The only downfall was that the 90 minute treatment had to end! Double Serum, one of my all time favourite products, was then applied and theAi??BB Cream was smoothed on my skin.Ai?? I was handed a mirror after the treatment and instantly could see the difference in the texture and brightness of my skin… I definitely think I need to book facials on a more regular basis!

My Clarins facial in the House of Fraser Reading store was simply out of this world!Ai?? Holly conducted a consultation and recommended I had the Moisture Replenisher Facial which intensively replenished the moisture levels in my dry, dehydrated skin.Ai?? One hour and twenty five minutes of pure bliss later and my skin felt supple and looked radiant. My pores were significantly reduced – it was without doubt worth every penny!Ai?? I would highly recommend the Clarins spa treatment and couldnai??i??t resist purchasing the amazingAi??Double Serum and fabulously scented Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil, so now I can recreate the experience at home.

I visited the Clarins Skin Spa in House of Fraser Reading on a busy Saturday afternoon for a facial. I was greeted by my therapist, who instantly made me feel welcome and at ease. She examined my skin and determined that due to the change in weather it was a little dry, so she recommended the Moisture Replenisher treatment. I was treated to over an hour of bliss and relaxation which included cleansing, exfoliating, toning and moisturising my skin, as well as the added bonus of a hand, shoulder, neck and foot massage. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I definitely noticed a glow that I didnai??i??t have before the treatment. I was really impressed with the experience and am already planning my next visit! For the meantime I treated myself to theAi??Double Serum and the One-Step Facial Cleanser to continue my treatment at home. The Clarins Skin Spa is really worth a visit… you wonai??i??t be disappointed!

I visited House of Fraser Lakeside for my facial and was immediately made to feel special and relaxed. I was shown to the spa and couldnai??i??t believe how calm and peaceful it was (especially compared to the busy shopping centre on a Saturday afternoon). The Clarins staff were extremely welcoming and talked me through what the facial would involve. Throughout the facial there was calming music playing and the treatment also included a head, shoulder, neck, hand and foot massage which was much more than I have expected. I felt totally relaxed, to the point where I think I nodded off a couple of times!Ai?? My skin felt super soft and smooth after the facial and I couldnai??i??t have asked for more. I have already booked another session as a birthday present for my Mum!

I arrived at House of Fraser Guildford and was warmly welcomed into the spa. Before the facial started I discussed my skin type with the therapist, Hannah,Ai??which is oily with occasional breakouts. She took this into account and chose the Detox and Shine Stopper facial. To start with she carefully took off my makeup and relaxed my eyes. The facial felt amazing – a combination ofAi??hot oils and facial washes were used on my face during theAi??treatment, including a combinationAi??ofAi??cleansing, exfoliation, mask, upper body massage and also a scalp, arms, hands and feet massage. The whole treatment lasted an hour and a half.Ai?? It really did relax me and I left the Clarins Spa feeling completely rejuvenated. My skin felt so soft and you could really see a glow in my skin. The treatment did exactly what it claimed to do and that was to re-balance oil production, tighten and refine pores to give a clearer, smoother, softer and more matte complexion. I really enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend it to anyone!

With the weather changing and the grueling commute to work taking its toll, it was definitely time to tackle the issue ai??i?? my skin! Although I had not changed my normal skin routine I started to notice extra blemishes and outbreaks which I felt like I could no longer control. I visited the Clarins Spa in Lakeside where I was greeted by a friendly therapist, Claire. Once in the treatment room Claire then assessed my skin and to my disbelief, diagnosed dehydration on the cheeks and suggested the most suitable facial tailored for my skin would be The Moisture Replenisher. Claire then skilfully cleansed and exfoliated my skin whilst I dosed to the soft music which filled the room ai??i?? a truly relaxing experience. During this facial my neck, arms and legs were all relieved of any tension which had built up and the oils left my body just as soft as my face! One of the products Claire used wasAi??Double Serum which she boasted would even my complexion and has visible results; all of which I totally agreed with! After my treatment, HydraQuench and Pure and Radiant Mask were recommended and I was given trial sizes to sample at home which I have now been using and fallen in love with. I’ve received compliments on how fresh my skin is looking ai??i?? a definite compliment to what was dehydrated and neglected skin!

After a 3 hour daily commute, late nights, and lots of weather changes, I decided my skin was looking rather lacklustre and decided it was time I visited Clarins Spa! I went along to the Reading store to try a facial treatment. Having normal/combination skin with a tendency to breakout I was slightly nervous at the thought of a facial as my previous experience in a salon was very oil heavy. I was taken though my skin consultation by Paige who said my skin was a little dehydrated, but that was totally normal for this time of year. I went through my concerns and she talked me through how the facial would work for me, which was the Tri- Active facial. The products used in the spa are far more concentrated than the retail products, so they provide a real extra dose of nutrients to the skin. The treatment focused on cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating my skin as well as a gorgeous neck, shoulder and foot massage which I didnai??i??t expect! Afterwards my skin had aAi?? glow I hadnai??i??t seen for a long time, which was absolutely amazing! I was so impressed with the products, I bought theAi??Double Serum and Cleanser which I have continued to use every day. The best thing about the facial was there have been absolutely no breakouts and my skin is still glowing. I would highly recommend!
