Very Good Salon
I have used Beauty Essence in both the City and in Mayfair on several occasions. They really are a very good Salon. In particular I have had their Microdermabrasion Facial which is brilliant, and their Shellac Manicure which I love. Whenever I have had a treatment I have always without exception come out feeling relaxed and delighted with my treatment. Apart from their treatments though they have other benefits. The number 1 would be the staff who are all incredibly friendly and helpful. Also though the long hours that they are open including evenings and weekends, and the ability to book online meaning that you can check availability and book appointments at any time of the day or night!

I have used this salon for waxing for several years and would never go anywhere else. The standards are impeccable - the most thorough and least painful waxes ever and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I've also had IPL here, and was highly impressed - it's lasted 3 years and counting. A really great salon.

I have visited Beauty Essence a few times now for Brazilians and full-body spray tans. I cannot recommend the salon highly enough - the results are far better than anywhere else I've been in London. The tan is a gorgeous colour and the wax is always very thorough - consistently good. Great location for City workers and convenient opening hours, and the therapists are very professional. Once you have a treatment there you will not want to go anywhere else!

Great salon in the city
I had a Shellac pedicure at Beauty Essence and I was impressed by the professionalism of the therapist and the standard of the treatment. The shellac polish lasted me through 2 holidays this summer! I also nearly fell asleep on the comfy treatment bed- so relaxing! Will certainly be coming back. Sophia

Tucked away far from the madding crowd
Tucked away down a little side alley off of Bow Lane, this place is ideal for anyone working in the Bank/Cheapside/St. Paul's area. I had vouchers given to me for a birthday so I booked a hot stone massage - wonderful!! Rooms are clean and well-presented and staff are friendly and knowledgeable, polite and courteous. I wasn't rushed even though I went lunchtime (which was nice). Reception area is a tad on the small side but I never had to wait long so didn't really bother me. I have since been back for waxes and manicures and have been really pleased each time. Would definitely recommend.

I regularly use beauty essence for waxing. You may find it more pricey than other places, but it's 100% worth it. I'm always really pleased with the results and the staff are very proffessional and welcoming.

Great little salon with well qualified and friendly staff
I've had 3 Environ facials here and they have always been consistently good. You are very well looked after and the staff don't try and push products on your all the time but give advise when asked. The staff are very experienced and skilled in facials, I've not had any other treatment yet so I can't comment on other services but i will be trying them. You can book online and pick your beauty therapist which I think is an amazing service to offer, I get all my Environ products from there too, they are pretty well stocked! I would recommend this salon for facials in particular Environ.

Consistently Very Good
I have been a client of Beauty Essence for 4-5 years now. The facial and massages are first class, I always feel that my skin is glowing after a visit to the salon. The team is very knowledgeable and gives very good advise.

My favourite City salon
I work round the corner from the Citysalon and have been coming here regularly for waxing and the odd eyelash tint for the last three or four years. I generally see either Gurpreet or Natasha and both are excellent therapists. Treatments are quick, the salon is clean with lovely relaxing treatment rooms, and the hours are great as you can either pop in any time during the day, or before/after work as they are open from 8 until 8. Prices are about average for the City, but it's the location and staff that make all the difference.

I was very happy to find that after a two year leave of absence from the City, Beauty Essence was still providing exactly the same professional and friendly service. Gurpreet as always did a great job and I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that price increases were minimal over the last two years. I will (and have) certainly recommend Beauty Essence to friends and colleagues!

My Beauty Secret
Tucked away in a corner of the City, Beauty Essence is easily my best salon find. I used to work opposite and only discovered Beauty Essence when my cheap suburban salon let me down before a holiday. Girls in my office raved about the waxing at Beauty Essence so I gave it a go. The wax was patient, easy, comfortable and long-lasting. I've never looked back. I now work on the other side of town and still would only trust Beauty Essence with my skin. I have problem skin, so every time I go for a facial, I have a consultation first. Their recommendations have never failed to give me what I want. The Environ facials in particular are a favourite, they are so relaxing I always fall asleep, and leave looking refreshed, brighter and younger! No matter what the treatment, the therapists are all friendly, knowedgeable and easy to talk to about what you're looking for. You see the same faces every time you go so you can't help but feel comfortable. They recommend products but never make yo feel like you have to buy them (unlike some larger spas). I have recommended Beauty Essence to all my friends and none have ever been disappointed. Fantastic place.

Excellent salons, therapists always really good and very friendly
I have used both the City and Mayfair salons, both are really good. Very near the station, you can book online and the therapists without fail are excellent and easy to chat to or if you prefer, silence and peace. I have had electrolysis, facials and eyelash tints. Really thoroughly recommend.

First Rate Salon in the City of London
I work in the City, have been coming to Beauty Essence for the last seven years. I visit every month for waxing treatments and can't praise the salon highly enough for its friendly professional staff, ambience and the quality of the products it uses. I have also had a variety of other treatments at Beauty Essence and all have been executed to a very high standard. They keep up to date with all the latest products (eyelash extentions / gel nails etc) and no matter which therapist you have you know you are going to be thrilled with the result. The salon itself is relaxing and nicely decorated. I can't praise it highly enough!

Guinot Beaute Neuve Facial at Mayfair salon
I had my first facial at the Mayfair branch today. I wasn't sure whether the Guinot Beaute Neuve or the Microdermabrasion facial was more suitable for me so I had asked for a consultation beforehand. I was greeted really warmly as I entered the salon and was introduced to my therapist Mel. She was very sweet and friendly. We had a talk about my skin concerns and she explained how to treat each problem I had. I then got ready and she cleansed my skin and had a proper look at my skin and recommended the Beaute Neuve facial. She was very professional and knowledgeable. She explained the process of the facial and left me to relax while she continued. The music and atmosphere was fantastic and I was relaxed throughout the whole time. I was also given a scalp and a back, arm and hand massage. After the facial I was given time to look at my skin. I felt very relaxed and refreshed. My skin felt thoroughly cleansed and I could see a difference to my complexion and overall appearance. My skin was left feeling soft and smooth too. So happy with the overall experience from this salon, I have already booked in for my next facial! Also, I was not pushed into buying any products, unlike many other salons I've been to! 5 star service!!!

Quality treatments and Staff are friendly and know their stuff!
I had a Guinot Hyrdradermie 2 facial at the City salon and my therapist helped me work out a plan to improve the quality of my skin in the most kind, helpful and cost effective way. It does seem that the staff really have your best interests at heart. Plus, the treatments are fantastic - they really have picked out the best range on the market to offer... also you can pick up very reasonably priced products. Highly recommended!
