I always go to Pure Essentials; I always see Annie who is friendly and super efficient at her job. She always makes sure she does a perfect job.

I love going to Pure Essentials and have recommended Annie and her team to many friends.

Always friendly, and professional; I wouldn't go anywhere else in London.

Facial is really good and staff so attentive. Ambiance is basic but for the price it does a great job!

Stay away from this place! The only time I could go due to job reasons was late afternoon ( around 7pm) the guy who did my nails was clearly in a hurry to leave. I have done acrylic extensions many times before in different places and this one was the worst of all. He sticked the tips without even checking that they were the perfect fit for me. He didn't wear gloves which seemed very unprofessional and when it came to using the tool they weren't even desinfected properly . The towel from the costumer before me was not changed and it made it disgusting. He kept talking with a working mate and didn't pay attention to my nails at all. Between the nail polish being so cheap and bad quality and his 0 skill to paint nails I ended up arriving home and taking it all off and redoing it over by myself. Horrible experience.

I had a shellac removal and express manicure - finish was good but when I took off the polish I realised the shellac hasn't been removed very well and my nails are in quite bad condition

A great little salon near King's Cross station. I was really happy with my manicure, it was quick and I could watch TV whilst it was being done! Perfect!

Great place; the staff was welcoming. The facial was one of the most thorough I've ever had in my life and my beautician Yumi gave me some great skincare recommendations. The salon sells its own products and Yumi offered me to buy a couple at the end but I did not feel compelled to purchase any (as other salons sometimes make one feels).

I went to Pure Essentials in an emergency over a year ago and have become a frequent client ever since. The staff are friendly, efficient and welcoming and always lovely to me when I go.

I highly recommend Pure Essentials.

Really good facial, knowledgeable therapist. Skin felt great afterwards. The venue is on the small side, but fit for purpose and clean. Will be coming back.

The salon is a little small and not overly fancy but it is clean and friendly. The waxing was top notch. Can't speak highly enough of Athena, she was great and is clearly a perfectionist. I have sensitive skin so really notice if a waxer isn't on their game! Highly recommend.

Also, the overall service was really good. Treatwell messed up my booking and the salon were really good about sorting it out and making sure that I could get an appointment in the day and time I needed.

Friendly helpful staff however I don't think ear candling is for me. It wasn't unpleasant but it was over in 15 minutes and hasn't made a difference at all. Would go back to the salon for a different treatment though
