Whether you’re looking to get rid of dullness, address acne or refine your texture, sorting your skin issues doesn't have to cost a fortune. Here are seven reasonably priced facials available across the capital promising impressive results...
By Rebecca Hull

The House of ELEMIS

About: The House of ELEMIS in Mayfair offers a range of 30-minute facials and treatments that are designed to deliver maximum results in minimal time. We love the ‘Pro-Glow Brilliance’ facial, which targets dullness by dissolving dead skin cells for renewed glow and a bouncier-looking complexion. The products feel amazing on the skin, while the calming environment immediately puts you at ease. You’ll also find nail bar Townhouse inside the same location – the ‘petit’ bar is a great place to refresh your mani before or after a facial.

Prices: From £90

Where: 2 Lancashire Court, Mayfair, W1S 1EX

Skinwork Soho

About: Eilidh Smith specifically set up Skinwork to offer facials that go the extra mile without breaking the bank. There is a vast treatment menu to choose from, but we recommend trying the signature treatment which includes pore extraction, a skin-softening peel and a vitamin C serum that’s delivered straight into the skin using a special device. Like others on this list, you’ll see the benefits immediately – notably fresher, dewy-looking skin that looks smoother in tone. Make sure you enjoy the soothing neck, shoulder and arm massage you get as the ingredients begin to work their magic. It’s a thorough – but never abrasive – experience you won’t forget.

Prices: From £75 

Where: 24 Peter Street, Soho, W1F 0HD

Skin Laundry

About: Determined to make laser facials accessible to all, Californian-brand Skin Laundry now offers treatments all over the world. At three locations across London, it offers quick facials using a YAG laser that gets deep down into the skin to remove dirt and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The IPL part of the facial then targets pigmentation, inflammation and bacteria and the results are instant – think smoother, more refined-looking skin that’s baby soft to the touch. The best bit is you only need to set aside 20 minutes – and there’s no downtime whatsoever. Ideal for those prone to acne and breakouts, but also anyone in need of instant glow before a big event.

Prices: From £75 

Where: Carnaby Street; Chelsea; Hampstead

Sk:n Clinics

About: Accessible nationwide, Sk:n Clinics are great for facials that cleanse, exfoliate and deeply hydrate skin. A group treatment of courses (around three) often turns out to be more cost effective but you can pay as you go, too. There are plenty of treatments on offer, though we recommend the HydraFacial – of which there are six types – which stimulates collagen, boosts moisture and gets rid of uneven tone. Ideal for those looking to overhaul their complexion and anyone chasing instant results.

Prices: From £368 for 3 treatments

Where: Canary Wharf; Chiswick; East Finchley; Harley Street & nationwide

About: FaceGym’s treatments are now more popular than ever. Like a bootcamp for the face, its specialist technique stimulates unused muscles to firm up slackened skin. We love The Signature Sculpt treatment, which combines a warm-up technique, cardio, strength and cool down with vigorous knuckling movements and high-energy whipping strokes. The Facial Workouts also include electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to improve bounce and smoothness, while each treatment visibly detoxifies your skin and naturally contours your complexion. You can opt for extra add-ons as well, to tailor the treatments to your individual needs. 

Prices: From £75 

Where: Claridge’s; St John’s Wood; Selfridges

The Clarins BeautyBAR Express

About: Clarins’ BeautyBARs are genius. Simply pop into the John Lewis Oxford Street store – or Fenwick – and book in for an express facial that takes no more than 30 minutes. Despite the speed, a luxury experience is still guaranteed. We love the Detox & Glow treatment – a nourishing facial that coats skin in soothing oils and serums with a gentle massage. It’s not just facials on offer, either – you can also book in for quick back massages to ease tension and weary muscles. At just £26, it’s hard to rival considering the results, ease and value on offer. 

Prices: From £26

Where: John Lewis & Fenwick stores nationwide
