There's no appointment necessary... Cancel your facial because we've introduced a host of AAA-List approved super-heroes to our skin care Hall of Fame. Working overtime to lessen depth of lines, diminish signs of ageing and help guarantee a 'glitterati glow', just you wait for the paps to come calling...

One of the industry's closely-kept secrets (we won't tell if you don't!), this ‘underground' range is beloved by the big names in fashion and film - Rosie H-W and Jessica Alba are both super-fans of Shani (and her must-have eponymous brand). A capsule collection of cult-status solutions, Shani's {cleanser}, {essence}, {hydrator} and game-changing {Texture Reform} grant spectacular salon results without leaving the comfort of home (hallelujah!).

The doctor will see you now... A world-renowned specialist in the field of skin ageing, {Dr. Barbara Sturm} is trusted with the world's most famous faces (Kim Kardashian relies on her to keep things looking enviably 'taut' and youthful). An expert when it comes to discrete (non-surgical) 'tweaks' (she administers you'd-never-know it botox to high profile necks and foreheads) and, (thank God!) she's now distilled her (largely inaccessible) expertise into a comprehensive range of high-performance treatments boasting cell-energising actives to coach 'lazy' skin to make a bit more effort. We're besotted with ALL of her brilliant {drops}...

Balancing an urge to stop the clock with her desire to embrace the ageing process (and set a positive example for her daughter), Verity's a retinol obsessive and will gladly share her thoughts about the time-defying gadgets, masks and treatments worth the splurge...
