The Belle Beauty Barn Review

As I am getting older I have realised the importance of taking time out to treat yourself to a good pamper session. Not only does it make you feel better on the outside, but I really feel like it helps you mentally. There’s nothing I love more than taking time out of my busy schedule to relax and treat myself to luxury beauty treatment.

One treatment that I really love is a facial. My skin has always been an issue for me and although it isn’t as bad as it was when I was younger, I still find it very important to give my skin a good treat with a quality facial. Not only is it great for the skin, but it also gives you a chance to truly relax and take some time out.

I recently found a new place to go to and have the beauty treatments I love. The Belle Beauty Barn is a cute little barn ran by Phoebe Edenborough. The treatments available include facials, massages, waxing, eyelash lifting and tinting, tanning, nail treatments and face mapping services. You can pretty much have the full package here. The prices are really reasonable and the atmosphere is incredible.

I spent my Sunday morning having a Dermalogica ProSkin60 Facial. Before the treatment I discussed my areas for concern and what I wanted to achieve from the facial. I explained how I have oily skin and often suffer from breakouts. Phoebe used this information to tailor the facial to my needs.

The treatment included a face masque which was so refreshing and left my skin feeling squeaky clean. I was really relaxed throughout the treatment, so much so that I nearly fell asleep.

I was very impressed with the outcome of my facial and I left with my skin glowing. It was the perfect treatment to have on a chilled Sunday morning.

After my facial, Phoebe discussed my Skin Fitness Plan with me and gave me some samples which would help me out with my skincare routine. I am really excited to use the products out and keep my skin feeling refreshed.

I had such a lovely time visiting The Belle Beauty Barn and Phoebe made me feel so comfortable and welcome throughout my time there. If you are looking for somewhere where you can give yourself a pamper, then I would definitely recommend you try out The Belle Beauty Barn. You can take a look at the treatments on offer and book yourself in here.

Thank you to Phoebe for such a lovely morning. I am really happy with the results of my facial and I will definitely be returning to have another one soon. I look forward to returning to this lovely little barn.

 

The treatment I received was kindly gifted to me, but all opinions are my own.

HarSPA Bristol Launch: Relaxation at its finest.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After spending the past few weeks moaning that I was in desperate need of a Spa Day, my prayers were answered as I received an invite to Bristol Harbour Hotel to celebrate the launch of their HarSPA Products.

As much as I hate to admit it, before attending a Blogging Event I usually spend hours picking the perfect outfit and ensuring my hair and makeup looks good. With this is mind, I was feeling extremely nervous about baring all and wearing a swimsuit in front of everyone.

The most daunting thing for me was the fact that I would spending the day with no makeup on and my hair all messy. It wasn’t until the morning of the event until I realised how silly this was. I woke up excited for the day, with no makeup on and embraced the natural look. I ended up feeling really empowered and super confident.

Bristol HarSPA

I had previously been to the Bristol Harbour Hotel before, but I had never ventured down in to their spa facilities. The decor of the place is incredible and the scent throughout oozes relaxation. The Spa is based under the hotel and truly is a unique experience.

On arrival we were greeted with some fluffy robes and slippers, which are always a must for a spa day. After this we had a chance to have a wander around the Spa and take in how beautiful the place was. We then headed down to the Vaults to have our HarSPA Product talk and tester experience.

HarSPA Products

We had a chance to test out some of the facial products in the HarSPA range and I loved with them all. HarSPA products use naturally sourced botanicals and marine elements. All of the HarSPA treatments, along with the products are aimed at immersing the mind, body and skin in purity and calm. 

After giving ourselves a mini facial with the HarSPA range of facial products, we were then given the chance to relax in the Swimming Pool, Sauna and Steam Room before having our chosen HarSPA Treatment.

Please excuse the post sauna glow on my face.

HarSPA Treatment

We were each given the chance to try out one of the luxury HarSPA Treatments. After much consideration I decided to pick the HarSPA Invigorating Back Pamper which was a 55 minute treatment.

This treatment was absolutely magical. It started off with an invigorating sea salt scrub which is used to increase circulation and remove dead skin cells. This step alone left me feeling like a new woman.

The treatment then allows you to enjoy a bespoke back massage, tailor made to focus on areas of concern, working to loosen and tighten muscles. This part was my favourite. It really helped release any tension I had and left me feeling as light as a feather.

The treatment then concluded with a detoxifying back mask, used to unclog any nasty impurities, along with a soothing scalp massage which really does send you to sleep.

Lunching in the Vaults Room.

After we were all finished with our treatments, it was time for lunch. It lovely for us all to get together and discuss how well our treatments went. It was great to see how happy everybody was.

We were served the tastiest spread and I definitely stuffed my face with plenty of avocado and tomato on toast. Our lunch was served with a glass of prosecco and we were then treated to some fruity desserts to finish.

I was really impressed with the food served at this event and I would definitely recommend you check the catering out if you have an event coming up soon.

I had such a fantastic time at this event and I left feeling completely relaxed and stress free. If you are looking for somewhere to spend your next Spa Day then I would definitely recommend Bristol HarSPA.

The building itself is stunning, the location is perfect and the staff were lovely. Thank you to Bristol Harbour Hotel for having me.
I will definitely be returning soon!
