Omniya Knightsbridge – 30+ Blogger Event

Published by Donna Coppack on

Question. What’s better than a cult beauty store?
Answer. A cult beauty store that does facials, botox and toothpaste!

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I was invited to visit Omniya’s new flagship store right across the road from Harrods.  I had heard that they stock some truly exclusive products and deliver some of the most exceptional treatments, so they had a lot to live up to in a world of Sephora and Space NK.  Luckily they didn’t disappoint.  This is a one stop shop for anything health and beauty.  You can get skincare, vitamins, dietary advice, have a facial and even get life coaching.

The exterior is a blend of french pharmacy and space age clinic.  The location is truly A1 and must have a been a nightmare to secure, I would hate to have to pay the rent!  As you walk you in you instantly feel calmer (which is difficult to achieve when packed with beauty bloggers and PR’s)  it’s a lovely respite from bustling Knightbridge.  It feels spacious and the “Genius Bar” in the middle (think fancy kitchen island) is a great place to get advice, try products and chat.

Fillerina – botox for the needle shy
Oooooo  french pharmacy brands galore.

The brands on offer are world leaders and their skincare selection is exceptional with ranges from ZO Skin Health, Skinceuticals, Dermalogica, La Roche Posay, Mario Badescu, Avene, Fillerina & Bioderma.  They also stock Jane Iredale makeup, OPI nail polishes and Macadamia Haircare.  The list goes on and on and is heaven on earth for beauty bloggers.

We were incredibly spoilt with our goodie bags. Hayley from London Beauty Queen did a stellar job working with the brands, we were lucky enough to get a selection of some of the best anti-ageing products they have on offer.

Most Excellent Goody Bag!

Roger & Gallet Christmas Cracker £6 (cute stocking filler)

All available from Omniya obviously!

Vichy Liftactiv Supreme (loving this so far!) Skinceuticals Metacell Renewal B3 & Retexturising Activator (read exfoliator)

La Roche Posay’s Anti Ageing offering – top notch quality ingredients at affordable prices as always!
Fillerina – the new buzz beauty product, so excited to try this

Who doesn’t need a handbag sized hand cream that smells lush, especially when coupled with a mini perfume!

I have already started using the Skinceuticals and the Vichy Liftactiv and I will report back in 6 weeks when they have had time to show any results.

I was really impressed with the list of treatments they have on offer from their star facialists and aestheticians Dr Sarah Tonks and Natali Kelly.  Here are just some of the massive list of treatments you could indulge in;

  • Botox (not my thing, but never say never)
  • Nefrititi Lift – non surgical jowl tightener using botox & fillers
  • Juvederm – dermal fillers- lip plumping, cheeks
  • Thread Lift – non surgical facelift 
  • Platelet Rich Plasma Injections (increase collagen)
  • Chemical Peels (restores radiance)
  • Microdermabrasion 
  • Microneedling
  • Telomere Testing – find out your biological age (how intriguing)
I was pretty impressed with the prices considering the practitioners have real medical degrees and the product used are all gold standard, you can get these treatments cheaper, but why would you risk it when it’s your face? I can’t wait to try one of their facials.

I want to thank Hayley Carr, all the lovely PR’s and the team at Omniya for a wonderful evening.  It was great to attend an event with like minded (and similarly aged) bloggers.

Watch this space for more skincare reviews.
