Cristina Coelho is one of London’s most coveted facial experts specialising in high end bespoke facials which promote the youthful rejuvenation, skin health and radiance. A bespoke facial is tailored to your exact skin type and requirements, so you know you’re getting the right facial for YOU.

Previously, I had only experienced one other facial, so I knew little of what to expect.

I have always had oily skin that is prone to blemishes, and until I was in sixth form at school, was allergic to most make-up, face paint, sun tan lotion…so my relationship with my skincare has never been great.

After hearing many rave reviews about Cristina, I was delighted to be welcomed into her cosy treatment room, in the beauty hub of Wimpole Street. As soon as I met Cristina, her warm personality made me feel instantly at ease and excited for my skin transformation! Cristina asked me questions about my skincare concerns, my skin type,  my regime, as well as the products she was due to be using, and every stage of the facial so I was completely informed. She is truly an expert in her field- the type of person you could spend hours quizzing about skincare, its rare you meet a skincare guru as knowledgeable as Cristina.

After the consultation Cristina explained I was due to be having the Active Vitamin facial, which is packed with nourishing, rejuvenating ingredients and leaves the skin radiant and dewy. The facial sounded ideal considering as I was due to go on a girls trip the next day and needed a serious GLOW.


So what does the facial do?  ‘The freshest, most active forms of vitamin A & C and antioxidants are driven deep into the lower layers of the skin with an DF Ionzyme Machine, which uses soundwaves and small electrical pulses. This scientific approach stimulates collagen to soften lines and improve elasticity, increases hydration and boost radiance. The Active Vitamin Treatment is suitable for all skin types and is particularly effective at addressing sun-damage, pigmentation, drynesss.’.  uneven skin tone and scarring, with measurable differences after just one session.

After the treatment, I felt totally rejuvenated after a long week at work and my skin felt instantly brighter, softer and more dewy. I must admit, I felt a little nervous to jump on the tube as someone who rarely leaves the house make-up free, but I immediately felt more confident in myself and happily started my commute back home.

The next day I expected to wake up to the usual grey, uneven skin, but instead saw a MUCH brighter complexion and didn’t need to apply half the foundation I usually would, if any. My friends and family commented on my new found glow, and I felt overall more confident as a result. For anyone looking to embark on a skincare regime that works, I couldn’t recommend Cristina enough for regular facials that will transform your skin and get you the results you’re looking for!
