Best For A Vast Treatment Menu

Founded by Venetia Archer, Ruuby has earned its title as London’s premier beauty concierge service. Whether you’re after an at-home mani at midnight or a quick spray tan for a minibreak, the app offers every treatment imaginable. We love that beauty therapists are chosen via expert personal recommendation, so you can be sure you’re getting the best service. Don’t skip the wellness packages either – think on-demand IV drips, juice cleanses and personal trainers. Services can be booked at home, in the office or at a hotel.

From nourishing facials to eyelash extensions, Uspaah offers a range of high-end services. Billing itself as a ‘spa at home’, its mission is to relax you by offering treatments that feel seriously luxe – ideal if you fancy a bit of a treat pre-holiday, or just need a bit of ‘me time’. We recommend the Deep Tissue Muscle Recovery massage, which alleviates sore muscles and deep knots.
