Introducing you to Gillian, our Facialist & Skin Expert
Gillian has been working in the beauty industry for 25 years. Following her industry education, she has worked for some of the most prestigious skincare brands in the world, joining the ranks of Chanel, Liz Earle, Sisley and Carita.
Her dedication to beauty and skin-care began at a very young age. Not many facial experts can claim to have started as young as 12 years old! Guided by her wise mother, Gillian followed a basic skin care regime which continues to this day. She believes that it was this childhood experience that encouraged her enthusiasm to learn so much more. Gillian continues to have a great passion to study the skin, its functions and natural changes and is dedicated to creating healthy skin.
When Gillian began working with iconic brand Chanel, she delivered facial treatments in Chanel boutiques and the Sanderson Hotel’s Agua Spa. During this time, there were opportunities to present to top publications that were covering product launch events. She recalls one such occasion “My most memorable taste of success might have been at the exclusive fashion show that Chanel hosted for their international privileged clients which included a specially created facial. I felt such a sense of excitement and reward”.
Gillian also enjoyed working with the highly respected and celebrated brand Liz Earle, when she joined their London flagship store in the Duke of York Square, Chelsea. She then began working with two of her favourite skincare brands: Sisley and Carita, when she moved into the distinguished Urban Retreat, a luxury hair and beauty destination in Harrods.
Gillian’s experiences during her career so far, have helped to define the position she now holds at Moreton Place.
“I could not be happier in my career than when I am helping my clients to achieve their individual goals towards having perfect skin. I focus on helping to create confidence through healthy skin. Here at Moreton Place Beauty and Wellbeing, as their facialist and skin expert and as a part of a happy team of therapists, I feel totally fulfilled”.
“Nature gives you the face at twenty. It’s up to you to merit the face you have at fifty”. – Coco Chanel
The Rose Quartz Sculpting Facial designed by Gillian
I created the rose quartz sculpting facial as I had learnt about the many healing as well as other benefits rose quartz has on the appearance of your skin; it contains natural energies that help to relieve tension in the facial muscles and furthermore it is the stone of love and associated with the heart charkra which makes it the wonderful gift to give yourself.
This treatment starts with a gentle exfoliation peel to renew the skin at the deepest level. The rose quartz crystal stone used in this treatment has many healing and anti-ageing benefits. Massage with the crystal helps to drain puffiness and unwanted toxins, contours the face, and helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and combined with an intense and deep sculpting manual massage leaves your skin renewed, toned, and you feel completely relaxed and rested. Finish your unique facial treatment with a complimentary cup of rose bud tea which carries many skin beautifying benefits.
