I had some waxing treatments and they were very thorough, done with a lot of concentration. It did take a little longer than usual but that probably means care was taken. The staff are friendly too.

I had my first wax in the UK at Pure Essentials, so I didn't know what to expect, but I can say that I'm definitely satisfied!
Annie, who took care of me, was really nice and talkative. She also gave me a couple of advices on how to take care of my skin after the treatment, and what products could help me with it.
I'm definitely going back for another treatment!

Such a thorough and intense facial. These treatments are definitely making a difference to my skin.

The salon was burning lemongrass essential oil which I liked so much that I bought some recently to burn at home. My therapist also gave me some samples of face products to take home.

The place was great, the lady who did my eyebrows were great. I usually don't like my eyebrows too thin and she listened to what I wanted and executed perfectly. The only bad thing is the type of eyebrow dye, it disappeared after 2 days....

I have been coming to Pure Essentials for the past year, and usually get a Radiance Facials when my skin is in need of some TLC. Really rate the salon, it's not too fussy or fancy, but the ladies really know what they're doing. I've not yet been disappointed. Really great value for money for such a central location.

I had a Hollywood hot wax at pure essentials last week. Would not go anywhere else for a wax - pretty painless and end result is always good. Will definitely return. Many thanks

This place is mixed. The opening hours are great so I think for nails and waxing it would be spot on - but it isn't the most relaxing environment for a facial or massage. The therapist was good but people came in to the room I was in to get stock during my treatment and the room was noisy.

Late opening times, which is great as I usually end up working late. The shop is clean and a little out of the way, but worth it in my opinion. I hadn't had a hot cream wax before, but I'd highly recommend it. Compared with a strip wax, it's considerably less painful. It's a little less thorough when pulling out hair, so sometimes it can take a couple of attempts to really get everything, but even with that in mind it's still less painful than strip wax! Very professional, lots of care and effort being taken, and I really appreciate how welcoming everyone was. Will definitely be returning in a few weeks!

I booked a regular underarm wax. As soon as I walked in I was told it would be best to upgrade to a hot wax for more money. I declined, however throughout the session I was being told that a hot wax is better, maybe this was to cover up incompetence?
The beautician did remove the remaining short hairs with tweezers at my request.
However I found it very rude that I booked one thing and kept being told what a bad choice it was and that it won't work. If they don't think it works they shouldn't offer it!

Good facial, felt very clean and refreshed after. I had the radiance facial which includes extractions - expect this to be painful! It was uncomfortable and dos look red after but this subsided by the next day. Skin surface was a lot smoother after.

I had a really good experience at Pure Essentials. The wax was quick and as pain free (as much as it can be!). I also really liked the music which was played in the background.
