Irregardless of where Claudia is situated I imagine her treatment rooms to be the same, because she seems to instinctively understand how to create a luxury but inviting environment.
After cleansing, my skin was steamed to open my pores which felt divine. By this stage I was already in a state of hyper relaxation and the feeling of the steamer on your skin is strangely therapeutic. After the steam I was cleansed more and then the extractions began. It was the first time I had ever had extractions (which says a lot about where I had been before I guess) and it was fairly uncomfortable but one of those processes that you know is for the greater good, and really draws your attention to what you’re neglecting in your skincare routine.
Claudia noted that I needed to exfoliate more in certain parts of my face and use products that were slightly more antibacterial. Thankfully she had an Azulene Gel- which she very kindly gave me afterwards- to help.
Post-extractions everything was plain sailing with lots of moisturising gels and serums. When I was finished and Claudia left the room telling me to take my time, I lay there for a good five minutes- in a state of comatose bliss I didn’t want to end. When I finally dragged myself up, Claudia had a glass of champagne ready for me. Now that’s what I call top class service.
With Michael Fassbender among her many high-profile clients, it’s unsurprising that she doesn’t want to stop.
