1883 Magazine

There’s no denying the benefits of a good massage, facial or some good-natured TLC, however time is often hard to find. So where do you go, what do you do and how do you give yourself some much-needed ‘Me Time’?

1883 tried out some of the best treatments to fit in your lunch break, day off or when you have a spare 10 minutes or so (yes, really, a beauty fix in 10 minutes).

Skin Laundry

Skin Laundry launched in 2013, with its first concession in London at Liberty London. Since then the band have expanded their reach with new counters in Harvey Nichols Leeds, Bristol and with products available from Harvey Nichols Edinburgh, Birmingham, Dublin, Liverpool, Manchester and Knightsbridge.

So what’s the buzz about? Well, just 15 minutes in the hot seat and utilizing laser and light treatment, the Skin Laundry Facial (£60) helps clean the skin, and we mean deep cleaning. The treatment is best worked over time, but affordable in helping you achieve the perfect no-make-up look with dramatic change in appearance in acne scarring, redness and hyperpigmentation. 1883 are big fans of their skin range too, in particular their Hydrating Radiance Facial Treatment Mask (£10) for post flight pick-me-up or a supercharged hydration during the colder months.

Sorbet London

While the treatments at Sorbet London aren’t exactly catered for time strapped Londoners, their massages are amazing and worth the trek to one of their stores. We tried their Hot Stone Massage and felt instantly relaxed and transported into another dimension.

The salon has also launched a skincare range that is simple and effective. Take for example their Salon Skin 3-in-1 Cleaning Micellar Water, which is gentle yet thoroughly effective in removing every scrap of make up and waterproof mascara. 1883 are super impressed with their entire range and affordability to allow you to achieve salon like results in the comfort of your own home.

Blush and Blow

Nestled in the quaint and idyllic Parsons Green, Blush and Blow offers a touch of glam that allows the perfect space for some ‘me time’ in decadent surroundings and plush arm chairs.

(Side note: we were amazed with their bathroom alone, decked out in black marble).

1883 went down to try their latest IBX Nails, which was a saviour after a couple of months of shellac-abused nails. The IBX treatment can be used underneath a gel manicure to offer protection and strengthening properties and preventing the weakening of nails. 1883 are full advocates of some mainucre prettiness, and now you can achieve the look all year round with the IBX.
