The ladies at Nail Girls were lovely, chatty & friendly. They clearly have been able to establish a good rapport with people, particularly their more regular clients. The location is great for North Londoners, just off of Upper St, so very easy to find & also to do something before/after. The results are that my toes look pretty & given the state of some of them that is no easy task! I did pay for an upgrade so I had a scrub which was nice, but maybe I was hoping for a better result with less rough skin but that could actually again be the result of the state of my feet - it had been about 8 weeks since my last pedicure. But I did enjoy myself, which is a huge part of it & my feet do look lovely again.
I went to Lulus in the middle of a downpour & it completely made me day! Located downstairs in the Marylbone Toni & Guy it was a little oasis of warmth & smiles. My therapist was the owner & she was clearly excellent at what she did. Paying meticulous attention to detail, while obviously being caring as waxing is not the funest treatment to undergo! We had lovely polite, friendly conversation & I felt very much welcome & at ease. The results were very pleasing & I would happily go again.
I had the course of three microdermabrasion treatments. The treatments themselves weregreat, my skin looked & felt a lot better as a result. The therapists were kind, soothing & seemed to know their stuff. The one thing I would say is that when I managed to get a booking to suit me the first time I made my subsequent bookings, only to find on my next visit that my final booking hadn't actually been done & it was very difficult to find a time when I was free to then be able to attend. There were also two occasions where the therapist was running late (by at least 15 minutes) & no apology was given, which seems a little poor practice to me. Overall it was fine & the results were good.
Love Bilss Spa! Everyone is super friendly & helpful, as if tey'd give you a hug almost. My therapist was lovely, she clearly knew her stuff & we had a great chat as she worked away on busting my love handles. It was a unique treatment & I can completely understand why people would get it pre a big occasion as the results were visible, which was really nice. I also had the bonus of recieving a take home bottle of the Love Handler which has been a nice reminder of the whole experience as well as a unique product to use. Very happily recommend Bliss Spa & their range of treatments.
I went in thinking this would be a bit of fun, it would tickle but that it would be good, particularly for my feet as I'd just run a big race & my feet were not pretty! It tickled & it was interesting to watch the fish. It wasn't as effective as I thought it would be, but maybe that was just my expectation. I'm not sure. The staff were ok, polite.
I was originally booked in for a date in late February, for me it was pre running a half marathon so I had timed it specifically. I was told with plenty of time that a therapist had resigned so they couldn't do that day & then had a rather lengthy negotiation to get a differnt day. Eventually I got one. Then about two weeks prior to the massage I had more phone calls & messages to rearrange the massgae. Which I was not impressed with at all. Turned out they just hadn't updated their bookings & had me down for two massages.
I turned up & there was some confusion, but eventually I got to go downstairs for my massage. My therapist did not introduce herself, which I don't agree with, I think that saying your name when you're about to massage someone is pretty important they are lying there almost naked! I said I would be tender due to lots of running but that I really wanted a very firm massage (I had booked for deep tissue after all). The result was not deep tissue, or very firm which was very disappointing. My therapist was fine, she was polite etc but it was not what I had booked or asked for. So it was a rather average experience for me.
My Fabulous Facial was exactly that - fabulous! I was greeted warmly by a wonderful young man & that really set the scene. The facilities were clean, beautifully arranged & created a wonderful environment within to relax, unwind & be pampered. My therapist, Elizabeth, was a gem, she balanced the right amount of chat with the right amount of letting me basically sleep...I did get an add-on for my facial which was well worth it & thanks to the wonderful sale I brought a few products to take home! Overall a wonderful experience that I would completely recommend & not hesitate to repeat. oh & my skin looks & feels fabulous. Soft, radient & ready for a New Year!
Slightly difficult to find the venue but a good lesson. Change facilities could be improved, but the class itself & the equipment were all solid & good. My tutor was good & knew his stuff which was nice. The class was pretty small, only three of us which was nice & had merit. I could tell that despite being a beginners class that the tutor was used to people who knew what they were doing as the instructions were given as though I should know, but he would then come & correct me, my posture etc which worked given the small class size, but if the class was full I am not sure how this would work or if he would change his style to suit.
