B London Boutique is a one-stop haven of beachwear and beauty tucked away in Barnes, one of London’s prettiest suburbs. The boutique approaches getting holiday-ready from two angles. Beachwear such as ViX (a bikini favourite of Kelly Brook) is sold in the boutique with beautiful pieces of jewellery by Laura Gravestock, Amanda Marcucci and Blee Inara. Beauty products from EVE LOM are for sale in the boutique and also used in their treatment room.
Walking in, one really does have the sense of entering an intimate luxurious space. The spa has a cool cream interior accented with wooden floors and quirky wallpaper. The staff are warm and friendly using their skills and knowledge to make your whole experience pleasant from start to finish. There are a range of treatments on offer from the exclusive EVE LOM facial to aromatherapy using one of 12 signature oils which have been specially blended using natural plant and flower oils all with beautiful exotic fragrances that not only smell divine but also have wonderful therapeutic properties. What’s great about B London’s aromatherapy massage is that once you have answered a few questions to determine your emotional needs, the therapist then carries out a smell test where you choose the oil most suitable for you from the selection. It has been shown that we will be drawn towards the essential oils which will most benefit our current state.
I tried the Sleep Deeply treatment which lasts 2 hours and is a full body massage using carefully applied pressures to induce a deep state of relaxation, leaving you prepared for a sound night’s sleep. In fact, the resulting relaxation is so effective that clients are advised to use public transport to return home just in case the blissed out feeling affects their driving ability. Luckily Barnes Bridge train station is only a short walk from the boutique.
After an initial consultation with Kerry, I first had a foot spa with the Deep Relax Spa Bath Concentrate which contains Sandlewood, Camomile and Vetivert. My calves and feet were then exfoliated with a natural olive stone exfoliator after which Kerry massaged the Intensive Skin Treatment Oil containing contains Wheatgerm and Vitamin E into my cuticles. I was then treated to the Sleep Deeply aromatherapy massage, where Kerry used chakras and cranial pressures with the Deep Relax massage oil. The massage included a scalp and facial pressure point massage with the Revitalising Oil containing a blend of potent essential oils and natural plant extracts to restore vitality to dull skin. The essential oils used in the Deep Relax treatment are grounding sandlewood, calming & soothing camomile and vetivert which is a natural sedative.
The massage left me feeling floaty and light. It really did help me to “Sleep Deeply” just as the name of the treatment promises. I would recommend the Sleep Deeply treatment for anyone looking for serious relaxation and it is definitely one for those who suffer insomnia or sleep problems as I had one of the most restful nights sleep I have ever had the night after the treatment.
