I have been venturing over to Santi Skin Spa in South Kensington for the past year now. I was first made aware of the beauty mecca when a I met a friend for cocktails at Zuma and she was completely zen with the world, relaxed and calm and looking stunning. She had just come from Santi’s and one of their fabulous massages and was in a completely different world.
Living in the Royal Borough, there is a spa on literally every street corner. I have gotten cuts getting a mani done and have walked out of back massages limping, most of them are cheap, stressful and to bring it to the point, not that nice. So I had to go check out Santi Skin Spa online the second I got home that evening.
Almost done with my laser hair removal treatments (which have been done to absolute perfection, leaving me comfortable, relaxed, looking and feeling fabulous every time), I was curious to see what else was on the Santi Skin menu.
I have super sensitive skin, and was kindly advised to try the light therapy facial and after hearing only the highest of possible praise, I opted for a Swedish massage to take away the London-life tension that is slowly but surely building up in my back.
I started out with the ancient Swedish massage, designed to relax, de-stress and get rid of toxins as well as reduce emotional and physical stress, and was lead down into the treatment room by a lovely young lady after enjoying a fresh lemon-grass tea and Vogue in the stylish and chic upstairs waiting area. I dozed off in the candle lit room while the therapist did her thing (extremely well) kneading and rubbing and pushing and pulling in all the right places. After and hour and a half I woke like sleeping beauty only to be lead to the room next door and the second part of my spa-ful afternoon.
The acne light therapy facial is a powerful, non-invasive treatment which will neutralize the bacteria on your skin that causes redness and inflammation. So the perfect solution to my facial battlefield, which when done regularly will result in a clearer, healthier complexion. The incredibly bright light was a little intimidating at first but soon transformed into a comfortably warm and soothing feeling. I thought I must have dozed off yet again when I noticed that while the light was ridding my face of toxins and all that jazz, my feet were being massaged, rubbed and oiled up. I could have sworn I had died and woken in heaven! It was absolutely fabulous.
Santi Skin Spa is not only a highly recommendable resort for all things beauty, but also a place in the heart of South Kensington where one can go to tune down and slip away from the real world for a couple of hours. No wonder celebs and royals are regularly seen leaving the spa! I don’t blame them, Sati is the go-to spa for anything you could possibly wish for!
Santi also collaborate with hotels in the area, so for all of you who have friends and family come over from abroad regularly Santi is a great way to incorporate some Spa time in your schedule within the comforts of your hotel.
Ask for Utta if you plan on starting laser therapy or simply would like to treat yourself to a fabulous facial! She’s amazing, so attentive and really sensitive to your needs and wishes!
