The 90 minutes I spend with Norah are the best 90 minutes of my month. I walk in stressed and walk out feeling, and looking, 10 years younger. Norah never gives you the same facial twice. She takes time to see what your skin actually needs and tailors to the facial to that. She is a genuinely caring person who treats you as an individual and takes time to understand you and you lifestyle so that you get the best results. Everyone needs a Norah.

I had a wonderful experience with Norah, she was very friendly and genuine. The treatment was wonderful and I have never had a facial quite like it! She used many different techniques such as facial brushing and thermotherapy, and my skin is glowing now!

The therapist was really informative and made me feel so relaxed! The products used felt amazing on my face and my skin has felt so lovely since.

I've visited many salons and specialists over the years but have never met a therapist as knowledgeable and supportive as Norah. I have melasma and sebaceous hyperplasia, both of which my doctor and a dermatologist said nothing could be done about. I .....have been amazed both by her knowledge about the skin and the personalised nature of her treatments. I certainly agree with one of the other reviews, which says 'facial' doesn't do justice to the nature of the treatment she provides. In the last 12 months my skin has improved dramatically; I regularly receive compliments about how good it looks and have seen a real improvement in both of my skin conditions. In addition to that, the treatments are just that, a real treat. Calming and relaxing, with specialised products and techniques tailored for my skin, I really look forward to my monthly visit. Absolutely superb value for money - going for that first visit was the best decision I've made!

Loved it! Norah offered an ultrasonic cleaning instead & the skin felt soooo clean and smooth! Her message is so relaxing, I almost fell in sleep!

Pure Face Works is the best salon to visit if you want a relaxing and peaceful treatment at the hands of a real expert in the world of facials. Norah is always calm and welcoming - the time goes too quickly and you notice the huge difference in your skin straight away. Please visit and try it for yourself!

My first facial with Norah was given as a birthday present from a friend who has regular facials and had raved about her! I absolutely adored it, and now have regular facials too. 'Facial' doesn't really do justice to the depth of knowledge Norah had about the skin. It's her passion and she attends conferences on all the latest treatments and developments...The session itself is pure relaxation (the facial massage is a wonder!) and I come out with glowing skin. I now order all of my skincare products from Norah based on her analysis of my skin, and I have never had such good skin. It also means I don't waste money on trying new products to 'see' if they live up to the hype - so it's a money saver too!! I honestly can't recommned Norah highly enough...and she is such a lovely person too! She really cares about her work and her clients. For me it is a wonderful investment in my skin and my wellbeing.

I loved my facial by Norah - she uses fabulous products that all smell good enough to eat and it's such a relaxing hour. She really takes such an interest in how best to work with my skin as it's always been my weak area. There's lots of different aspects to the facial, so you get good value for money. Afterwards my skin was glowing & I felt extremely nourished by her treatment. Thanks Norah!!

If I could give an extra star I would because Norah is the type of person who always gives that bit extra. I had been suffering from acute eczema and wanted to try to stop using the steroid creams that were ruining my skin. She has fabulous products and was always thinking of new things I could try, so the Pure Face Works facials were the first that had given me any kind of relief. I regularly travelled to Sidmouth from Bristol and would highly recommend the facials to anyone who has problem skin or is simply looking for a wonderful way to relax and look 10 years younger!

I highly recommend Pure Face Works facials to anyone who has problem skin or simply wants an amazing facial. I have suffered from acne for many years on-and-off and with Norah's help I am finally free of always being very self conscious about my bad skin and definitely winning the battle against acne.

Each time I treat myself to a facial from Norah it is always carefully considered and tailored to the condition of my skin at that time. Norah is passionate about her craft and has clearly researched her products and techniques as my skin always benefits from it. Thanks Norah.

I have had several sessions with Pure Face Works and I can honestly say they are the best I have ever had. Everything from start to finish is wonderful, I come away feeling really relaxed and my face looks much brighter for days afterwards. Friends can always tell when I have been for a facial! It may cost a little more than some treatments I have had but it is worth saving up for. I definitely recommend it.

I've been a client of Norah's for just over 18 months. In that time I have always found her to be extremely knowledgeable about skin and it's care. The treatments that she offers are fabulous, extremely relaxing but very effective. I'm 53 years old and my skin looks better now that it did when I hit 50. Not only are the treatments fab but Norah has a very calming presence so you come out looking good and feeling very chilled.

I have suffered from adult acne since I was thirty and I have always been very self conscious about my bad skin. Thanks to Norah's fabulous facials, I can now go without foundation and I am frequently complimented about my skin, something I never imagined would happen . Norah is really knowledgeable, and is constantly researching. Her products are excellent quality and very good value. I have recommended Norah to friends and family, as her facials are a wonderful experience. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I highly recommend Pure Face Works facials to anyone who has problem skin or simply wants an amazing facial. I have suffered from eczema for many years and with Norah's help I am finally free of steroid creams and definitely winning the battle. My skin always looks so much better after a treatment and given the cost of the fabulous products she uses and all the incredible machines at her disposal it's incredibly good value.

"Every time I have a facial from Norah I am amazed at the deep state of relaxation gained from working on the face....and always walk away feeling completely revitalised."Dom Lawson. Yoga Teacher
"Norah provides the most relaxing and feel good facial I have ever had. Since having the facials and using Norahs natural face and body oil my skin looks and feels softer, fresher and more nourished . My face has been free from spots and whiteheads, and I can only put this down to the natural oils soaking into my skin, amazing!

"Thank you for the amazing Facial you gave me the other day. I was feeling really exhausted by life but your Facial completely revived me...... Your Facial is much more than just a skin treatment, you give full restoration to the weary woman! I think that really you are a healer with a talent for working miracles through a Facial. I have tried several over facials and NEVER experienced such a good treatment. And the products you use work wonders too."

"After years of being unhappy with my skin, I eventually built up the courage to see Norah. She has given me some expert advice, time, patience and understanding. Her facials are both relaxing and tailored to the individual. Norah has made significant improvements on some pre-existing scars I had .... giving me a huge confidence boost from the results. Not only do her facials make you feel good, they make you look good and my only regret is that I didn't see her sooner. Thank you!"
