A haven of relaxation within our gorgeous
Central London salon.

It's with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you that Beauty Essence must close its doors until the government dictates that it's safe to

re-open, I'm heartbroken.

If you had a booking with us over this time, I will call you to reschedule your appointment. 

While we are closed, we are going to be up-skilling our staff, taking extra measures to clean and disinfect the salon and all of our tools, and work on new and exciting summer offers to celebrate our reopening.

In the meantime please can I ask you to support us by purchasing products from us. Our income has stopped & in order to be able to re open we need your help. We have plenty of Dermalogica, Environ, Guinot, Jessica & Ultrasun. I will also be setting up an online shop on our website this week.

Just email me & I will send you our your supplies: info@beautyessence.co.uk

You can also still buy gift vouchers while we are closed to say 'Thanks For Minding the Kids' or 'Here’s a Treat to Look Forward To' for anyone you think deserves a little pick me up right now!
We will keep in touch to let you know when we are reopening - keep an eye out for the updates. 

On a personal level we've set up a self-isolating support group in our area & have our own team in our road. I've also started delivering supplies for our local chemist. There are many ways we can all help each other in this difficult time. My dad's in a nursing home, so I can't see him, but I'm keeping in touch with all the elderly people in my area.

On a more fun note most of our therapists including myself & their children did the Joe Wicks workout on you tube at 9am this morning. I'll be doing this daily, so see you there!

Looking forward to welcoming you back in soon,
Mary & our fab Beauty Essence team xxx

Our Central London Salon is based at 7 Well Court, just off Queen Victoria Street & Bow Lane in the City of London. We were originally based on Bow Lane from 1996 and moved here in 2006. Our location means we can behave as a sanctuary of calm within the hustle and bustle of busy London life.  Our clients have treatments throughout the day to fit in with their packed schedules. We also have local residents as well as many clients from all round the world and choose to come to our welcoming salon to gain the very best treatments.

At Beauty Essence we love to take care of our clients.  We carefully curate the latest treatments and products to ensure you gain the best the market has to offer and we tailor these to suit your individual needs. What this means for you is a fantastic result from your beauty treatment.


We offer a wide range of beauty treatments from deep cleansing facials and deep tissue massages to gorgeous gel manicures.  We excel in all treatments but our speciality is in Brazilian Waxing using a more comfortable and relatively pain free Rose based hot wax specially imported from Spain. Guinot, Environ, Dermalogica and Jessica are just a few of the product houses we use, all of which deliver excellent results when used at home too.

From the décor and facilities we offer in our salon to the team we employ, we strive to provide you with a wonderful experience.

Our owner and founder, Mary Gillmore, has been in the industry since 1983 and hand selects our dedicated beauty therapists to work as a part of the Beauty Essence team. They have been chosen for their skill, their reassuring and encouraging manner, and for their professional approach to beauty therapy.

At Beauty Essence we like to take care of our staff as much as they like to take care of you and we ensure our highly qualified team have on-going training to both aid their personal and career development as well as to ensure we use the most progressive techniques available.

If you have already been to Beauty Essence I trust you have seen just how seriously we take your satisfaction and convenience – we even have online booking and our very own iOS & Android apps to make your life easier, which means making an appointment could not be simpler.

We look forward to meeting you. Mary Gillmore and our fabulous team est. 1987
