This was my first visit to Lindy's Escape and I have to say it was disappointing...
I purchased a facial through Wahanda which seemed good value so booked to have a back massage at full price at the same time. I’d been looking forward to it all week and spent time looking through the different facials I could have. When I arrived I was surprised to find my therapist wasn’t the lady I’d spoken to on the phone (Lindy) but a girl covering for Lindy who seemed to be very inexperienced and didn’t deliver to the standard I was expecting.
I didn’t receive the facial I requested (Youthful You) which included a peel off mask and I felt like the therapist was just passing time leaving me with different products on then washing them off after running the water numerous times throughout the treatment.
The back massage was ok but definitely not worth £25 (extremely over priced – I have never paid anything like that for a 30 minute treatment even in the city centre)!! The couch didn’t have a whole for my face so I walked out with a crick in my neck and the therapist noisily squeezed herself around the bed about ten times during the massage.
The treatment room reeked of paint and I was told not to touch the walls as it was wet, hard to do as the room was so small – also the amount of noise was terrible coming from the other rooms, people walking on the hard floors and talking loudly - not at all relaxing!
To top it off, after over an hour of talking about my skin type I was awkwardly handed some testers and told that as I’d mentioned having ‘sensitive skin’ to try them, this annoyed me because I’d not once mentioned that I had sensitive skin, it was very obvious the reason she said that was because that’s all she had left in her cupboard!
Overall I didn’t rate my experience, I felt worse after than when I went in and sadly won’t be returning to this salon again.
