Right now, there’s a beauty and skin care revolution going on in the South Hams and it’s being headed up by sisters, Joanne Stephens and Danielle Steer of newly-opened The Retreat Skin & Beauty of Chillington.

How so? These two inspiring ladies decided it was high time to make good on a long-cherished dream to set up their own beauty therapy practice … with a difference.


For starters, they’re passionate about using the most eco-friendly and cruelty-free products around, from additive-free skin care right down to bamboo cotton buds and mascara applicators, paper wax strips and recyclable containers. Add to this, compostable vegan-approved sheets and towels which completely bio-degrade in eight weeks and you can tell Dani and Jo have seriously done their homework.

‘It’s true we have focused on using products that care as much about the environment as we do but that’s not enough,’ says Jo. ‘They obviously also have to work! That’s why we’re picky and insist on using time-honoured brands and ingredients like Dermalogica for skincare, Jessica for nails and Henna for brows. That’s not to say that we don’t keep a close eye on the latest trends and innovations, but we want to see proven results as much as our clients do. Our reputation depends on it.’

15-Minute Skin Health Consultation … and it’s Free!

All said and done, top-rated brands like Dermalogica and Jessica don’t survive decades of stiff competition without delivering on their beauty-enhancing promises. This, combined with the long-practised skills of the Chillington team, means that you are in safe hands and will leave delighted with the results. What’s more, all new clients receive a FREE 15-minute Skin Health Consultation to tailor treatments according to need.

£20 Off Dermalux Full Treatments in November

Favourite of celebrities including Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, Dermalux is the undisputed leader in the field of non-surgical, non-invasive LED phototherapy technology. Available exclusively in the South Hams at The Retreat, this ground-breaking technique works by stimulating collagen production to restore firmness and that coveted plump, youthful glow.

Due to its powerful but gentle action on the skin, Dermalux has also demonstrated significant improvements to the appearance of troubling skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne.

For best results, Dermalux is recommended as a course of treatments, and at £20 off the usual ticket price of £55 per treatment during November, what’s stopping you? ‘We honestly can’t praise this system enough,’ says Dani. ‘That’s why we’re running this offer, so people can find out for themselves just how amazing it is.’ Want to book a treatment or find out more?

Let’s Party!

And now it’s coming up to party season. You’ll want a bit of pampering to fortify you through the stresses of Christmas, so why not opt for a super-relaxing Swedish Massage provided by trained sports massage therapist, Dani?
‘It’s amazing how much stress and tension can accumulate in the body over time,’ says Dani. ‘My clients are often in a completely different space by the time they leave.’ For soothing those tight muscles and frazzled nerves, it’s got to be the best thing ever.

Then there’s the tick-list for the annual work’s Christmas do. Make sure you check in for a manicure and gel-polish for ultra-elegant hands, and how about treating your feet, too? Follow up with luscious HD brow and lash extensions, and stunning occasion make-up expertly applied by Amber, and you’re good to go. You won’t have to hobble half way across town in the rain for the privilege either; The Retreat has client parking right outside – what could be simpler?


For the full range of treatments available from The Retreat, check out their website at, and you can find out further information and opening times on their directory page here. The Retreat is based at Unit 3, Fairfield Meadow, Orchard Way, Chillington and for bookings, call Dani or Jo on 01548 580181.
