African red tea, honey and blueberries – no, not a new line of Innocent Smoothies but the ingredients list for some of master facialist Ole Henriksen’s key ingredients. For three days only (Jan 29-31), this natural skincare specialist is offering weary shoppers a free ‘No Noise’ facial, inspired by Selfridges’ own low-branding campaign. All you have to do is pop in to the department store on Oxford Street, and on a table surrounded by fresh fruits and label-free products, you can choose between a vitamin–C rich Pure Truth facial, or a skin re-surfacing Lemon Strip Peel. Both treatments promise to hydrate and revitalise your skin, whilst giving you a welcome pitstop in the chaos of W1 shopping. For an all-round ‘sensory’ experience, Ole Henriksen therapists will be hand squeezing fresh orange juice to ‘evoke aromas’ and ‘heighten’ your experience. Just try not to lick your face when lying there.
