If you’re looking for a bit of ‘me time’ leading up to the busy holiday season, Canterbury’s independently owned Camomile Rooms is an oasis in the heart of the city centre.
Camomile Rooms first opened its doors in 1992. It was the passion project of mother/daughter duo, Maxine and Rosemary.
Just a few years later, the salon became the first in Kent to certify in, acquire, and offer CACI facials. They’re now experts in CACI treatments; performed with the state-of-the-art machine, these facials utilise lights, electricity, and exfoliators to give the skin a full refresh, which includes the visual repair of damage as well as a non-surgical ‘face lift’.
Now, Maxine is leading the way again as the only certified oncology facialist in Kent.
But it’s not just the facials that bring people in. Camomile Rooms specialises in all things pamper: various massages, waxing treatments, eyebrow and eyelash enhancements, nails, facials.
As of 2014, Maxine has shared owner duties with Alex, whose favourite treatment to provide is waxing.
(Maxine adores giving facials, stating that ‘making people feel better is my passion’.)
These days, Camomile Rooms has its own range of skincare products that combine quality with an attainable price.
If the ladies at the salon could give you one piece of advice, it would be to invest in your skin. As Maxine puts it, it doesn’t matter what outfit you put on; your face is always what people will see first.
Now’s the time to get your treatments booked for the holidays, so head to their website to make appointments online. You can also head right into the salon on St Margaret’s for guidance on what to book and when. Vouchers are also available as gifts for those in your life who need a bit of bliss.
