Wellbeing Wednesday: Mountain Bath Oil

September 29, 2010


This is pretty special stuff. It’s full of essential oils, and smells really intoxicating. Hay flower and eucalyptus give an energising zazz, and a little of it goes a long way.  Other bonus points include how good it looks, a definite ‘leave out on display’ product; and the packaging is really well thought out, it’s easy and neat […]

Something for the weekend: Dorchester Spa

September 25, 2010


Breathe Easy Aromatherapy The winter months play havoc with my chest and sinuses, and as we’re coming into Autumn I already feel the sniffly, bunged head onset of a cold. So an aromatherapy ‘breathe easy’ treatment seemed just the thing to sort me out. And it was. It’s a mainly face down massage, focusing on […]

Product: Revive Morning Oil

January 4, 2010

Or (and I loved this option), rub it all over your body, and jump into the shower – the smell is amazing and very invigorating. […]

Hydrohealing Spa, W11

December 12, 2009


Hydrodermabrasion Facial I’m going jump right in here and say that I definitely recommend the hydrodermabrasion process exclusively at hydrohealing spa in Notting Hill (actually Ladbroke Grove to be specific). It’s basically bad ass exfoliation. The therapist uses small droplets of water and oxygen, released at high pressure from a wand/pen thing to remove dead and […]

Product: Legtone Serum

September 17, 2009


Adonia This amazing stuff, launched to great fanfare in May this year, claims to reduce cellulite, and make your bum and thighs look firmer in just nine minutes. It was easy to rub in, smelt great – and to some extent it worked. There was definitely a firmness to the wobbly bits that hadn’t been […]

Neville Hair & Beauty, SW1X

September 17, 2009


De-Mistyfying Treatment When someone told me about a treatment which would turn my dry barnet into a silky mane, I knew I HAD to try it. I’ve been blessed with not bad hair, it’s got a lovely natural curl to it, and even self-highlights in the sun; but the payback is that it’s big and […]
