Firmly inserted in the Notting Hilly Billies black book of beauty, Scin has now opened in Great Portland Street and is causing a similar frenzy amongst nearby residents. Offering all styles of treatments and packages, Scin’s candy store appeal is also backed up with adept and helpful therapists, who even add extra assistance if you’re in a hurry and request for it.

Joining almost every beauty salon in London, Scin uses Ren products which are organic and, with science and mineral technology, manage to boost the skin’s natural repair and renewal. For their facials, they use Ren or Dermatologica and it’s all the usual – deep cleansing, masks, steaming, extracting – but with an unusual attendance to exactly what you want, resulting in your facial being adroitly sculpted to suit you.

With the uniform polished, white-washed walls and candlelit therapy rooms, there’s nothing specifically different about the salon, it’s the treatments and the therapists which sets it apart. With already a wide selection of facials, massages and packages to choose from in Notting Hill, the Great Portland Street salon offers an even more diverse selection.

Like most salons, there seems to be a connection with the limited time schedule that most people have available in which to beautify themselves. Yet, another perk to Scin is that they have packages for the beauty gluttons, which incorporate facials, massages, pedicures and hydrotherapy treatment lasting between one and two and a half hours. I managed to try out their Ren facial while at the same time having my nails buffed and glossed. The success lies behind their effortless efficiency and easy treatment adjustments which manage to accommodate any client and make the whole treatment personal.

One word of advise, with Virgin employees already clocking the new arrival it might be wise to pre-book…
