Treatments

I've never had a chemical peel before. My skin looked tired & dull and it was starting to really bother me. I wasn't sure what to expect but when I had the consultation with Francesca she explained all the treatments on offer & I felt that a quick & gentle procedure like the Uber chemical peel sounded perfect.

It was unbelievably relaxing, it didn't sting in any way. I loved the clay & manuka oil mask that was applied after the peel also. It all felt like such a treat!

The positive effects of the chemical peel treatment were instantaneous. I honestly couldn't believe how smooth, fresh & radiant my skin looked straight after the treatment.

I'm still stunned how a natural treatment could have such a radical effect! It's been a few days since the treatment and I still amazed how great my skin looks & feels! This will definitely become part of my regular treatment regime. I highly recommend. I'm telling everyone about this!

I was expecting some discomfort from the microneedling with the Dermapen but it was surprisingly painless. The entire process including the collagen mask was soothing and felt luxurious. I was very careful and followed the instructions for aftercare. I think there is a noticeable improvement to the crepiness of my neck and a small improvement to the depth of my naso-labial line after one treatment. My hands also look a little plumper. People have noticed and commented on how refreshed I look. This is an invaluable treatment to improve skin tone. I would recommend it.

I’m a Micro Needling (Collagen Induction Therapy) convert. I have found that the therapy makes my skin dewy, I certainly look more refreshed for several weeks following each session and I have noticed that I absorb all my skin care products so much better after treatment. I didn’t know what to expect initially but the pen really does just glide over the skin smoothly and there is no pain or even discomfort. The session feels like a mini spa experience and when Francesca places on ‘the mask’ to hydrate the skin and soothe it - I’m in heaven. This has become my go to treatment for skin rejuvenation. I want to do all I can to defy the signs of ageing. I particularly like that this treatment promotes my own body into creating new collagen! Francesca always gives out advice on how to get the best result from each treatment and I find this extremely helpful. Every session gives me a healthier more vibrant appearance, I just glow. It’s totally natural and it really works!

My biggest concern with my appearance was the signs of ageing due to the nasolabial folds that seemed to grow deeper every year. These deep folds made look tired and older than my years. I saw Francesca for an initial consultation and we discussed my concerns and the options available. I had never had any aesthetic treatments previously so this was a big step for me. Francesca explained everything well, she gave me information to take home so I could read up about dermal fillers and she told me not rush into anything. When I did return for the dermal filler treatment I honestly could not believe what a dramatic improvement it made to my appearance. The results were incredible. I felt such an increase in myself confidence - I didn’t look tired anymore. My friends and work colleagues all commented how well I looked too. I have continued to see Francesca for aesthetic treatments for several years now. Every treatment she offers is super and her range of beauty creams are delicious. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

I've been a vegan for over 20 years. I often feel tired & chronically suffer from poor sleep quality and insomnia. I’ve often had my B12 levels checked by my GP but it’s always on the low end of normal so I’ve never been offered B12 injections or supplements. I’ve tried over the counter B12 pills and food supplements but with no noticeable improvement. I decided to try the B12 injections as I felt I had little to lose and a lot to gain. I found it to be a quick procedure & entirely painless. It seemed immediately and consistently that I’m falling asleep 2-3 hours before my usual bed time and without trying. The quality of my sleep has improved too. I’m definitely adding this into my self care programme.

I applaud the dermal filler treatments that I have received from Francesca at Venus of Beauty. I’ve had a few tell tale aging signs smoothed/filled with filler like marionette lines, lip augmentation for volume loss and nasal labial folds. The care and attention received in the service is always exceedingly good. Francesca explains everything thoroughly, so you know what to expect, she offers hand outs on post treatment aftercare and always follows up with me the next day to check that I’m OK. I always feel really looked after by Francesca. The treatment results are so natural looking, I appear more refreshed but never over done. People who know me, comment all the time that I look so well! But they cant work out why! it's strange how subtle treatment can cause such a striking improvement in ones overall appearance. I highly recommend Francesca and her services.

When I was 15 years old I became self conscious of my thin upper lip. Every time I applied lipstick I disliked my lips. I’m 50 now and that’s such a long time to be unhappy. It never occurred to me that it’s fixable. I just thought dermal fillers were for celebrities who wanted a trout mouth, like shown in the media. Again, it never occurred to me that lip fillers when wielded in the right hands could look natural, beautiful even, let alone be affordable. Why did I wait so long! Francesca not only corrected something that continually caused me to feel unhappy about myself but she totally exceeded all my expectations with her skills. Francesca listened to what I wanted and then artistically created what I have long desired. I could not be happier.

I am susceptible to bruising. I just resigned myself to the idea that my face would be covered in post treatment bruises at the Botox injection sites. I was very impressed with the treatment and Francesca's needle technique. I have had two treatments now and have no bruising whatsoever. I am thrilled with the results!

I had my first ever muscle relaxant (Botox) treatment with Francesca. I was initially quite nervous but I found Francesca so professional & reassuring and she really took the time to explain everything thoroughly. Once I felt I better understood how botox works, what's involved in the treatment & how to avoid side effects, it lessened my nervousness. I recommend my friends to Francesca because not only is the treatment great but she offers a very detailed service & doesn't make you feel rushed.

I am thrilled with the services Francesca offers and I have no hesitation in recommending her. I particularly like her mango butter serum that she gifts her clients with as additional aftercare with Botox treatment! What a nice touch! I have seen how this serum works on others and I look forward to it working for me!

My colleagues at work have all commented on how fantastic my Botox treatment looks. The main remark is that I look natural (I still have movement) and I look more refreshed. My main fear in receiving Botox was that I may end up with a frozen face but that wasn't the case at all. Francesca saw me for my first time appointment and we discussed the look I wanted to achieve and the look that I wanted to avoid. I then saw her again for a 2 week review appointment where she adjusted the Botox slightly and made sure that I was happy with the results. I am very happy with the treatment I received and would recommend her for sure.

Natural Beauty Products

Out of all the expensive facial creams, moisturisers and serums that I have used over the years, (to no avail!), nothing has moisturised my (mature) skin like the Jasmine Face and Décolletage Butter. It’s light in texture but it penetrates the skin with a deep luxurious hydration like nothing else. It’s never greasy and allows me to apply my foundation perfectly. I use it both day and night and as a primer for my foundation. It’s superior to any high end product that I've ever purchased. I wouldn’t be without this facial cream.

Having mature skin, it has been a nightmare trying to find a rich enough moisturizer to go under my 12 hour foundation which is difficult to apply. My foundation becomes difficult to blend and just clots. I had finally resorted to using a well known brand of hand cream which didn’t work well but it was the best I could find. I had tried high end store brands which were not any better than the hand cream. I have very dry skin and even oils don’t work well because they just don’t moisturize. I was introduced to the Goddess Venus Beauty Collection by a friend who recommended their Jasmine Face & Décolletage Butter.

After applying this product, I was easily able to use my foundation for the first time ever. I had a big surprise when I realized that my skin was marvellously hydrated as well. This product is also completely natural and without any chemicals...it also is handmade and a "labour of love" with some amazing ingredients. As I have aged I have noticed that moisturizers that have a high concentration of chemicals irritate my skin. I am delighted to say that this amazing product does not irritate my skin at all. I have also begun using this product as a night cream with wonderful results… Jasmine Face & Décolletage Butter is a true "Godsend" for me!!

Whenever I open my jar or should I say jars? of Mango Nut Body Butter the first thing that hits me is the wonderful aroma. My skin adores this body butter, it's lightly whipped, richly nourishing, my skin just soaks it up! My skin requires special treatment - no high street body moisturiser cuts it. My skin itches with fake scents and unnatural ingredients do nothing to moisturise my skin, I have come to the conclusion that they actually dry my skin out further. My skin needs deep nourishment especially during cold winters with the central heating on. I’m so glad I found this butter! My partner steals it from me regularly - he says it soothes his face after shaving. It works well has an intensive hand cream too.

Venus fine line serum, it’s doing incredibly nourishing things to my crows feet, I swear it’s smoothing them already!

At last a natural hand cream that works! I carry the Bergamot & Lavender Hand & Foot Butter in my hand bag. I use it at work to counteract the awful soap in our staff toilets that seems to strip the natural oils out of my hands. This hand butter works a treat. My hands feel smooth & no longer dried out. Thanks

The Venus Mango Nut Body Butter is fabulous! Really nourishes my dry skin. I am going to tell everyone about this body butter!

What a wonderful hand & foot cream. Soaks into my feet so quickly and no fuss with socks at night. The scent is sublime. People at work ask me all the time if they can borrow for their hands! I have to bat them off...

I love the your Avocado Body Butter. The butter has a lovely smell and moisturises so well on the skin, lasting all day. The smell is also uplifting and relaxes me throughout the day. I will be stocking up on more creams in the future!

Wow, I totally LOVE your ylang-ylang coconut facial exfoliation scrub that I was given as a gift! So smooth on the face and what a delight to have the coconut oils soaking into my skin doing only good things. It smells good enough to eat!

I am surfer and often in some harsh sun conditions and take pleasure in looking after my skin naturally, and I adore all the six products that I have purchased in The Venus Beauty Collection. The initial hit of seductive scents in each product are so gorgeous and stay with you for hours. I prefer to use Venus beauty products after my evening shower, I go to bed lavished up to allow the nutritious affection nourish my skin while I sleep.

Each body and face product feels so luxurious and adoringly beautiful to use, this range is truly beneficial giving me radiant skin. The fact that they have such simple rich raw ingredients and the handmade element of love is a rare factor in beauty products, no dilution here! Thanks Francesca, once again your quality intentions have caressed and enhanced my life.

I feel the Venus body butter is extra special. It’s not just the wonderful scent and lush ingredients, it has a quality about it that makes you ‘feel good’ It may well be the magic that you put into it with the goddess Venus, I don’t know. I just know its feels special.

The scented beauty products you made for me, to help me through my recent upheaval has helped me so much. Some days when things feel upsetting, I stop myself, reach for the scented product (Hand cream), inhale the contents and I feel rebalanced. It really works deeper than skin deep!
