What is it?

Grass Roots Facial® was created by Clever Contours founder Jo Minchin and her business partners when they launched Grass Roots Skin® -  the UK's first cosmeceutical CBD skincare range.  The Grass Roots Facial® is a trademarked facial and the world’s first CIBTAC endorsed CBD facial procedure that uses a full range of cosmeceutical CBD skincare.

The Grass Roots Facial® is a revolutionary 5 step skin treatment which follows a sequence of highly effective processes for instant and visible results.  It is results driven for all skin types including active acne, rosacea, sensitive, and ageing skin.


This process includes a facial with Grass Roots® CBD products, lymphatic drainage massage, dermaplaning, skin peeling and LED PDT therapy. The entire range of high-quality CBD and active ingredients are used throughout the process and available to purchase to continue your Grass Roots Skin® experience at home.

The revolutionary Grass Roots® skincare and facial have both featured heavily in the press, industry publications and skincare blogs since their launch. They have been lauded as the "hot" new brand. Below are just a few places you may have seen them.

The Facial Experience

The traditional facial is a little over 60 minutes long and in contrast to many other results driven facials, you will experience deep relaxation during the treatment. Once finished you will leave with glowing skin and visible results.


The facial continues to work long after your treatment and the benefits will continue for weeks to come. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.


Your therapist will also talk you through the Grass Roots Skin® products and their benefits along with any recommendations for your aftercare. We recommend a Grass Roots Facial® every four to six weeks to keep your skin looking its very best and at the very least, every season.


A thorough cleanse using our AHA Cleansing Wash and AHA Skin Tonic leaving your skin squeaky clean and ready for treatment. 


Using our black obsidian gua sha we perform lymphatic drainage, increase blood flow and induce deep relaxation with our Super Glow Miracle Oil. 


A manual exfoliation to remove vellus hair and dead skin cells, leaving skin super smooth. 


This fruit acid peel softens and deeply exfoliates preparing skin for product absorption. 


This targeted light therapy stimulates cellular repair and heals the skin. 


Instant results after one treatment.

Jo, i literally feel like you have given me new skin. I've never felt my skin so soft. I'm addicted.

This is me wearing zero makeup with zero filters because I've just had the best facial ever. Thank you for fixing my tired mask wearing face.

Hands down the best facial I have ever had in my life and I have had a lot of facials. My skin feels amazing, book me in for 4 weeks. I am using the skincare religiously and already seeing a difference. Wow, just Wow.
Angela Batton, Marple




What will i feel during the treatment?

The treatment is extremely relaxing and you are welcome to drift off and take a little nap. The treatment begins with massage which puts you into a state of relaxation. The Gua Sha Lymphatic Drainage is also very relaxing. The dermaplaning uses a small scalp but this is a very similar feeling to shaving and most people also find this very relaxing. The enzyme peel is a light peel and you will feel a tingling sensation but not pain. The LED light therapy poses no discomfort. The Grass Roots Facial is a very relaxing experience.

What happens after the treatment and are there any side effects?

You will feel very relaxed and your skin will be glowing, Due to the Lymphatic Drainage, we recommend that you drink plenty of water to flush the toxins from your system.

What is the downtime after the treatment?

None whatsoever. You are even able to have the treatment in your lunch break and head back to work.

Is the treatment suitable for everyone?

You will have a full consultation prior to your treatment to check for contraindications. We cannot perform dermaplaning on active acne, people with bleeding disorders, uncontrolled diabetes or anyone undergoing cancer treatment. However, we can adapt the facial to suit most skin types and still give you a relaxing and results driven facial.

Do i have to have before and after pictures?

Yes. These are purely for our treatment records and will never be shared for marketing unless you give your written permission.

Does the hair grow back thicker after the dermaplaning?

No. The soft vellus hair will grown back to what it was over a period of 4 weeks but it will not grow back any thicker.

The skincare includes CBD, will this effect me?

The CBD in the Grass Roots Skin product range is CBD Isolate and contains no THC. THC is the part of the plant that effects the brain. You will not be effected in anyway and you will not get high. The CBD has many benefits for the skin. CBD is anti-oxidant, anti-ageing, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory.

Can i buy Grass Roots Skin products from you after the treatment?

We stock the full range of Grass Roots Skin products and if you would like to purchase any products then of course we will be happy to asdvise you on what would be most suitable for your at home skincare routine. However, we will not be pushy and you are not obliged to purchase anything at all.

How often can i have this treatment?

We recommend no less than every 4 weeks as the treatment removes 3-4 weeks of dead skin cells and this is the same amount of time your skin needs to repair. We feel 5-6 weeks is perfect.
