Arch Beauty Clinic

Alice is one girl who can’t get enough of beauty. She is constantly researching, training and investigating new treatments to include them in the ARCH Beauty offering, but only those she truly believes in. She recognises how confusing beauty can be for consumers and sees how women’s skin worldwide is becoming more sensitive and problematic as we slather on poorer quality products or use formulas that strip and damage the natural balance. In a salute to the many French and Italian women Alice admired on her travels, she believes we should, like our Mediterranean counterparts, invest in our skincare before our makeup.

Alice believes in going back to basics and doing them well. Holistic treatments, environmental mindfulness, award winning and effective beauty products, cotton towels and pure Irish linen, a fresh juice on arrival… At ARCH Beauty it’s about the total experience. Looking after the little details as part of a bigger picture means you can truly relax.
