BEAUTY & SHOPPING
In our experience, there are two types of facials. Those that rely on the strength of the products and those that rely more on the expertise of your facialist’s technique. To say that Alexandra Soveral’s facials are the second in no way takes away from her hand-made beauty products (mixed by Soveral herself) which are organic and free of parabins and harmful chemicals. But it is the combination of both her products and the deep facial massage and feathering touch that will lead you to emerge from her basement headquarters in Maida Vale looking about 10 years younger. Your skin will look plump and glowing (as Soveral’s does) and your head will feel light and tension-free. We can’t recommend her facial more highly and her products too – our favourites are the Angel Balm cleanser and the Super Hero oil, with naturally sourced Hyaluronic Acid, which binds moisture 100 times more than a moisturiser. Don’t miss too her bespoke perfumes or her oil blending workshops.
