Purely Polished, Burnham Market

Take me-time to the next level at Purely Polished, a stylish oasis of calm in the heart of Burnham Market. Treat yourself with unique massages, top grade nail treatments, luxurious facials and so much more. Booking ourselves in, pronto!

Are you ready to feel elegant, stylish and absolutely spoilt rotten? Then step right in to Purely Polished, a little pocket of heaven in the middle of Burnham Market.

With its dusky pink walls, funky neon signs and elegant faux-Classical statues it sets the chic scene before you even choose your pampering session (and trust me, there’s a fantastic treatment list to choose from).

Purely Polished is renowned for its four “signature” massages, delivered using bespoke aromatherapy blends that have been carefully curated to suit your needs – Calm, Happy, Restore or Awaken. Expert aesthetician and therapist Alison is famed for her unique alternative massages, using hot stones or warm bamboo sticks, and she’s even a qualified reiki master. Feel like you’re vibrating at the wrong frequency? She’s got you sorted! Spa seekers can also enjoy reflexology, deliciously relaxing Indian Head Massages or a full Sea Salt Body Scrub.

But my tip? The ultra-luxurious Diamond Facial. A celeb favourite, this involves having a truly dazzling combination of precious black diamonds, gemstones, crushed mother of pearl and anti-ageing peptides applied to your face for instantly illuminating results. There are also a range of other facials on the menu, including the conveniently speedy 30-minute mini facial, perfect for busy gals in a hurry.

As the name suggests, Purely Polished excels at the mani-pedi, using top brand Mii nails for a super-stylish assortment of long-wearing and seasonal colours. Feet a wreck from running around after everyone (or too many nights on the tiles)? Their restoring pedicure includes a cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise with aloe vera, calming thyme, antioxidant rosemary and – we love this detail – soothing Icelandic moss. Yes, really! 

This salon deploys high-end professional skincare line BeautyLab London in all its treatments and also hosts regular pop-up clinics with esteemed professionals, where you can book in for tweaks and peels. And don’t think that the boys are being left out of this one – the salon also offers an extensive range of male grooming treatments, including a swift 25-minute hand and nail service.

If the glamorous black and white posters and the voguish interior feel familiar, that’s because Purely Polished is in the same buzzing business family as neighbouring restaurant No.Twenty9 (perfect for a post-treatment glass of champers), artisan bakery No.Thirty3 and fabulous doggy boutique Eric & Dolly’s. In fact, you’ll find the entrance to Purely Polished tucked just behind the latter, sharing the same gorgeous converted Georgian premises so you can pamper your pooch on the same day you pamper yourself!
