Review: Re:lax Skin Studio


Re:lax Skin Studio is Hackney’s best kept beauty secret. Katie White, the founder, works using a three pronged approach of topical treatments, nutritional therapy and lifestyle adjustments. At her tranquil beauty salon, she has created an accredited course that teaches therapists (including all therapists at Re:lax) to work using this method. Katie knows that all skin has different needs. Her focus is your skin and what makes it individual. Treatments are complement by a range of unique prod- ucts such as Ren, Oilixia and Mad Hippie.

She’s also religious about using facial sun block daily to prevent ageing. My facial started with a double cleanse using Mad Hippie Cleansing Oil and the Oilixia Gummy Cleanser. A quick steam followed by exfoliation with Ren AHA tonic, a Pat Rosehip mask, and a head, neck and shoulder massage. After, Vitamin C serum, Celluma LED light Therapy, along with a ten minute foot massage. Facial massage, manual lymphatic drainage, acupressure with an Oilixia explorer blend and more massage with gua sha tool. After 60 minutes, my face felt refreshed and looked brighter. Three weeks later, using the products Katie recommended, it’s still brighter and smoother.

Prices start from £80 for a 60 min facial.
