Maidstone’s Newest Gem

A little treat on Saturday afternoon…..thank you Allure and On The Doorstep!

Allure: In The Royal Star Arcade, Maidstone

When Laura asked me to attend the grand opening Allure, Skin and Laser Clinic, I was super excited to learn more about my skin, my body’s largest organ.  Now, had I been looking after this vital part of my body, well let’s see.

Allure, is a beautiful boutique clinic, in what I believe is the best part of Maidstone, The Royal Star Arcade.  The decor of Allure is super chic and stylish, yet the atmosphere is decidedly warm and inviting, in which the friendly and accommodating staff play a huge role.

Allure’s flagship branch was opened in Erith, just seven years ago by proud and dedicated owner Jennie. She really is a great role model for others dreaming of running a successful business. With dreams and hard work, anything is possible. 

Jennie has a fabulous team within the Maidstone branch, headed by Julie, the Clinic Manager. The passion and care for their clients was clear to see as soon as I entered the clinic. They all were attentive and extremely responsive to all their clients needs, on that very busy first day. 

The most exciting part of the process for me, was the images that they took of my face, showing different layers of my skin and thus different layers of damage….oh no! Actually even though I was a little shocked by a couple of the images, the damage was not as bad as I had anticipated, phew! However it did make me think about the way I sometimes treat my skin and I have now adjusted my routine. My forty-eight year old skin could do with a little more love than I had been giving it.  This hi-tech process is really worth taking part in, as I saw my skin for more than just a covering for my more vital parts of my body, it made me realise, my skin IS a vital part.

The second part of the process was a delightful facial using products by Allumiers which were carefully chosen for my skin type and the benefits they could offer my skin. The facial was carefully and delicately carried out, using a range of different products, that left my skin really soft snd smooth. I certainly had a delightful glow for the rest of the day. I probably would have fallen asleep during the process if my schedule had allowed. I left with a little goodie bag filled with follow-up treatments, which was a thoughtful and pleasant gift.

I would thoroughly recommend Allure to ladies who enjoy such delightful treatments. You definitely will not be disappointed in the experience. From the light, airy and chic clinic to the team of passionate staff.

Allure really is a gem within Maidstone.
