Testing the Treatment – The Mandara Spa

My skin has been considerably unruly of late. Perhaps it’s all the stress of launching a new business, perhaps it’s because I consider a pack of chocolate digestives a hearty breakfast, or perhaps in the absence of the sun this summer, my pores have given up and come to the conclusion that they’ll never need […]

I’d already had the opportunity to visit the Hair Lounge when I interviewed its owner, the immensely affable Charlotte Mensah. It’s not often […]

Testing the Treatment – Colour at Andrew Jose with Salon Science

I’ve got very fond memories of Andrew Jose‘s Charlotte St salon, mainly because they rather graciously fixed my friends hair after I’d attempted an at home highlight job that went unsurprisingly wrong. So when I was offered the opportunity to try out the salon for myself I jumped at the chance. The purpose of my […]

Testing the Treatment – London Facialist Claudia Fallah

The power of a good facial can’t be underestimated.  Whilst a facial works to plump, rehydrate and revitalise skin, nothing beats disappearing from daily life for an hour to zone in on you. Frequent facials are the unifying treatment all celebrities swear by and it is a treatment that sometimes we forget we can, and […]

Testing the Treatment – Blink @ Selfridges

I’ve always opted for threading over waxing, mainly because the only time I had my eyebrows threaded I cried like a baby. So you could imagine my trepidation when I was invited along to sample a brow treatment at Blink. Thankfully I needn’t have worried. I walked up to the Blink counter on the ground […]

Testing the Treatment – The Deramlogica Facial at Earthspa

There are moments in our lives, when certain treatments couldn’t come at a better time. In my case it was Earthspa‘s Dermalogica facial.   I have tried many facials before and, excluding one, have never had an issue and always left happy. I often worry about whether I’m too young to have facials, or whether […]

Testing the treatment- London’s top salons

There is little else better in this world than a fresh blow-dry or a new cut; nothing looks slicker than freshly-cut blunt ends- whether you’re a grungey girl or a chelsea trustafarian.    As a beauty writer I regularly catch myself eyeing up the ends of girls’ hair on the tube, and with blow-dry bars popping-up everywhere, […]
