Treatments We Love: BeautyLab Black Diamond Energizing Facial

Sarah had a little jig around the bathroom the morning after she trialled this uber-bling, anti-ageing facial (as well as black diamonds there’s real gold…!) at Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge.  The tra-la-la-ing was due to the fact that the BeautyLab Black Diamond Facial, delivered by the fab facialist Sarah Corbalis, is so effective at hydrating, evening, smoothing and plumping skin tone that you can safely go out in the light of day without a shred of foundation or even concealer. The facial includes very mild dermabrasion and glycolic peel (with fruit acids only) plus oxygen wafted into your skin so it better absorbs the gemstone products, principally the BeautyLab Black Diamond Energizing Serum, (£90 for 30 ml, from and Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge).  As well as the light-scattering diamond, this contains sapphire, hexapeptide, copper peptide and sea algae.

What’s more, the promised hydration is so efficient that when Sarah toddled on to her next appointment at Santi Spa in South Kensington for an update with the new whizzy skin-investigating machine there, the hydration levels were those of a 20 year old (which she is not…quite!)  So the message is – it works!

BeautyLab Black Diamond is a real ‘red carpet’ range with a fan base of celebrity facialists.  Beautylab was the chosen brand for all the X Factor contestants with the same genius therapist Sarah Corbalis.

And this treatment is definitely one for your next red carpet moment...
