Latest Amazing Spa Reviews:


Summer 2014 has literally come and gone, quicker than sweaty Londoners gulping Pimm’s in the unusual heatwave. As usual, the summer brought some glitzy events, which I had to do some serious scrubbing up for.
I needed treatments that would last from May through to August, yet not look “over done” at May’s Cannes film Festival. A very glamorous occasion indeed, I definitely had to do some pre-glam prep before the screening of my friend Dan Simpson’s Film, 'The Rendlesham UFO Incident'.
The amazing anti-ageing expert Dr. Anil Budh-Raja gave me facial injections in form of the right dose of Botox - not too much – but enough to give a natural look, seeing as Dr Anil is also an experienced GP, I felt safe in his medical hands.
I also had an infrared laser facial treatment at the West London Dermatology Centre in Chiswick. A week after this treatment my face was glowing, looking visibly younger and tighter. After a gorgeous glam haircut and highlights by a super friendly stylist at Headmasters, I was ready to get into my red dress and literally FACE the party!

Nirvana Spa:   Suffering from January blues? A bit of TLC could be just what you need to put that magic back into your life, as well as give you that much needed restoration!
There’s nothing like a spa day to help you to relax and realign yourself when life gets too stressful.
The Trusted Beauty Guide has visited and reviewed many spa’s over the years and we’ve realised there are only a few establishments who get it right when it comes to giving your mind, body and soul just what it needs. Nirvana Spa has always been on our list to review so when we were recently invited to the unveiling of their Crystal Suite and their new multi -sensorial spa rituals, we took the opportunity to experience an afternoon at what’s known as one of the UK’s largest spas.
The Wokingham based spa is just one of the few which has its own underground reservoir of spring water which it uses to fill its pools. It has six pools, including an award-winning, 53 station hydrotherapy spa.
Nirvana Spa is famous for its state-of-the-art Thermal Suite and exclusive Celestial Floatation Pool.  An amazing 60 tonnes of genuine Dead Sea salts, including 21 essential minerals, are dissolved in water from Nirvana Spa’s own underground source, heated to a comfortable 35˚C.  One floatation session is thought to be the equivalent of a good night sleep.
On Arrival Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff who kindly gave us keys to our lockers where we could change into gowns and slippers and kiss goodbye to our mobile phones for the afternoon. I have to admit, it took a minute or two to let go of my phone, as I’ve got so used to it always being with me, but I was glad to let go of the outside world to enter spa heaven. My fellow reviewer also felt the same.

Spa Treats    As its National Chocolate Week we finally have an excuse to indulge in chocolate and not feel guilty about it.
For chocolate lovers there are events taking place nationally from 14th to 20th October including the world’s largest chocolate show which is in London for the very first time. Salon Du Chocolat takes place at the National Hall, Olympia and feature’s the world’s best chocolate, demonstrations and tastings from top chocolatiers and pastry chefs, children’s workshops, a chocolate fashion show, a bath filled with chocolate and a full size chocolate cocoa tree.
The exhibition also features a chocolate spa too which we are looking forward to enjoying the positive benefits of chocolate for our skin. Chocolate has been used in skincare since the mid 1800 and these days we are seeing cocoa butter being commonly added to the ingredients of cosmetics for its moisturizing and skin softening effects on the skin. A chocolate treatment can also boost serotonin levels making you feel happier.
  We asked the experts at SpaSeekers.com to recommend a few of their top chocolate treatments and here is what they’ve given us:
Chocolate Wrapper at Champneys Tring Chocolate lovers treat yourself! Start with a full body exfoliation to prepare your skin for the delicious warm chocolate body wrap. Enjoy the distinctive aroma of chocolate and relax with a scalp massage. Body butter is massaged into the skin to leave you intensively moisturised and with a guilt free feel good factor. (55 mins)

Chocolate Indulgence at Bannatynes Spas Nationwide A full body scrub is followed by a chocolate massage which is guaranteed
to have your mouth watering with the aroma of hot chocolate. Choose your options of mint, orange or original to ensure you capture the mood. (60 mins)

Cocoa Chocolate Back Massage at The Malvern Spa   Mouth-watering pampering for the back using Dead Sea Salts, Essential Oils and warm 100% Pure Cocoa Butter, this body scrub and massage is unforgettable.  A guilt free sensation to leave skin hydrated, re-mineralised and smelling gorgeous.

‘Going Green’ is no longer a buzz word, it’s a ‘must’ word when it comes to beauty for many, as society becomes increasingly contentious.

Whilst there are some who want to do their bit for the environment by choosing organic over synthetic, there are also a number of people who simply wish to steer clear of pore -clogging petrochemicals, skin drying sulfates and other toxic chemical ingredients for the benefits of their skin and well-being.

Organic September   September see’s the launch of The Soil Association’s Small Difference, Big Changes campaign which helps to encourage everyone to enjoy more organic produce and products. It’s a great opportunity to get involved and discover some excellent ‘green’ brands and organic spa treatments whilst being able to do your bit for the environment too.
