in the Heart of London
Hello, I'm Mary Gillmore and I'm the owner of this salon.
We're delighted you've visited our website.
I've been in the beauty industry since 1983, which has given me the opportunity to treat many clients and witness many advances in the field.
I was born in Crowborough, East Sussex in 1965 and now reside in North London with my husband, Mark, and our twins, Emily and Luke (born in 2002).
I split my time between the salon and my home office, where I complete a lot of paperwork. If you're interested in meeting me, I'm usually available in our salon on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
I specialize in skin tag, mole, thread vein, milia and Veruca removal, IPL hair removal, and skin rejuvenation. I'm also passionate about waxing, massage and facials. My true love is any pro-aging treatment as I'm personally obsessed with an anti-aging lifestyle.

Owner & Beauty
“I can highly recommend Beauty Essence. I am not a beautician-visiting type of person but I feel totally relaxed and well cared-for by Mary and her charming team. In fact I travel across London to visit Beauty Essence for my treatments although there are plenty of salons in my local area. Quite simply Beauty Essence is worth the commitment!”
“I really recommend Beauty Essence. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, great products and a life saver in lock down, as my favourite products are being delivered to my front door, along with lots of extra goodies. Thank you Mary, I love receiving my deliveries and look forward to being able to see you all again soon! x”
