Lisa Franklin luxury Knightsbridge facial pampered in glamour. Lisa Franklin is quite simply a very hard working lady, that is impeccably dressed, takes what she does very seriously and adds some princess sparkles into your life. A brand with the light energy of diamonds at its core and the love of her craft in its heart.
We were so pleased to work with Lisa Franklin last year as she is a wonderful addition for our followers, a real Princess of beauty that adds that Hollywood touch. There are many that talk about luxury but not so many that deliver. As I have mentioned before real luxury is yes about the treatment and the products but for me as much about the place and the people. And this is for very good reasons, your surroundings should be pampering, supreme and elegant just as much because this is how it should be but because its calming and one emotionally feels cocooned in a loving environment and secondly the beauticians need to be nurturers, a cross between a nurse, a luxury hotelier and a nanny.
As a client, yes, I want to know a certain amount, but more importantly I want total confidence in the ability of the person I am seeing. Lisa, who always and I mean always looks impeccable was this mix and I can explain further. I visited her in December just after I had returned from Tahiti and had developed some very annoying bites which were itching like billy-o, I love that word but think this is the first time I have ever used it in writing, so …. a little bit embarrassing and probably male in trait, I thought these would just go. During my consultation whilst sitting in her beautiful treatment room, Lisa was concerned but in a pro-active way, wanting to help or at least offer suggestions, not alarming but conducting due diligence advised me to see my Doctor, which I did I think a couple of days later and a few antihistamines did the trick. So, you can understand maybe when I say a top beautician needs to be part nurse and part nanny.
The 5 star hotelier comment comes from the support team, with her PA Ellie being a key member and for me the surroundings which I have mentioned plus the all-important bed, support under the knees, a fresh warm duvet, sometimes an eye mask, scented candles and music are all important as when one lies down to the start of one’s treatment you need to feel completely at ease, comfortable, and not distracted by annoyances whether in the head or practical. As this stage, you have given your power to your beautician and to get the best results one should switch the brain off and stop. This is your time to be cocooned in a luxury facial.
LISA FRANKLIN is a highly-regarded skincare expert and facialist with over 15 years’ experience in the skincare and makeup industry. Lisa began her career in beauty by freelancing as a makeup artist and working as a beauty specialist at the Chewton Glen Spa in The New Forest. It was at this very spa that Lisa met with the renowned facialist Linda Meredith, eventually working at her prestigious Clinic in Knightsbridge for over 7 years prior to starting her own business – LISA FRANKLIN LONDON.
LISA FRANKLIN’s Sloane Street clinic, the home of her superlative beauty experience, neighbours globally renowned fashion brands on one of the world’s most exclusive and luxurious shopping destinations. The new bespoke treatment rooms have been designed by Lisa herself and environmentally reflect her unique approach to skincare. At the Sloane Street clinic, LISA FRANKLIN offers new technology including both an INDIBA® Proionic medical system which re-establishes microcirculation and improves oxygen flow and a BioPhotonic Scanner that measures the carotenoid levels in the skin. Lisa uses her own product range as well as other innovative and natural products from brands such as Alumier MD, Yon-ka and Image.
At home I have been using her The PRO-EFFECT LUMINESCENT BASE, a ‘no makeup makeup’ base which creates a flawless complexion. The photo-luminescent diamond powders within the primer convert UV to blue light which dramatically reduces redness, pigmentations, pore size, discolouration and shadows; while state-of-the art ultra-filling spheres tighten the skin, plumping out both deep and superficial wrinkles to deliver perfect results that transform you, instantly.
Now available at Harvey Nichols www.harveynichols.com/brand/lisa-franklin/ this is a product I am bowled over by, and I think I have only said that about a handful of products in my life. It’s a touch strange but in a good way, a touch of magic maybe as your skin genuinely does feel like silk afterwards.
A visit to see Lisa Franklin comes with a total recommendation. Quite simply a very hard working lady, that is impeccable, takes what she does very seriously and really adds some luxury with some princess sparkles into your life and we all need that in our lives, and you will leave feeling cared for and with glowing skin.
