  • Book in next Friday 19 October for a facial with celebrity therapist Nicola Joss

    London’s iconic Sanctuary Spa (and we don’t say that lightly – the spa is visited by over 60,000 of you each year) has announced that skincare extraordinaire Nicola Joss will be making a cameo next Friday as part of the launch of her new Skin Studio.

    It’s all in aid of celebrating a whopping 35 years of the women-only spa’s history since it was launched back in 1977 by US choreographer Gary Cockerill as a gift to his wife. Now that’s quite some gift!

    The spa’s been making women look and feel fabulous ever since, with landmark launches including the introduction of their signature at-home product range in 1998 and ‘that’ silver screen moment when the infamous pool swing was used by Joan Collins in 1978 film The Stud.

    Now’s your chance to be part of the spa’s history – book in on the 19 October for a celeb-worthy (literally) treatment from A-list facialist Nicola Joss herself.

    Nicola’s been a crucial part in the devloping the new Active Reverse Facial, £175 for 55mins, having returned to the Spa, 19 years after beginning her career as a beauty therapist there.

    ‘The Active Reverse Facial works with the muscle tissue to help lift and tone the contours of the face as well as nourish the skin and improve tone and texture,’ says Nicola. ‘It’ll help to reduce fine lines and leave skin dye and youthful.’

    Happy birthday, Sanctuary Spa!
