West Bay Spa (Yarmouth) & ESPA Beauty Goodies



ESPA
West Bay Spa had had an Open Evening earlier this month and I had dropped in, having (rather shamefully I may add) never been to a spa before! This was when I was first introduced to the ESPA beauty line, a UK based company. Pictured in the image above is the shower gel and facial beauty products that are currently on offer, if you buy a product you can choose from four samples from the ones available. Having rather sensitive, combination and problem skin, I find that their products are gentle enough for me to use, in particular I adore the Balancing Foam cleanser which I recently purchased (not pictured) which is fantastic to use in the morning! The products are softly scented with a smell rather addictive and are not tested on animals. Price range is roughly from about just over ten pounds upwards. The products seem to be aimed at an older market so perhaps in the future they may produce a slightly cheaper line aimed at younger skins. I loved the restorative oil set that I bought for £12.50, the body oil is non-greasy and easily absorbed with that fantastic smell!


West Bay Spa
Reflexology Treatment
This was the first time I have received a reflexology treatment and the second time I have visited the West Bay Spa located in Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.
Staff were courteous, friendly and professional at all times. The reflexologist spent 55 minutes on my feet and picked up on various health aspects that I had not even disclosed, by pointing out the tender parts on the foot. I was quite surprised at this and very impressed. Unfortunately, through no fault of her own (bless!) I still found it very hard to relax, but don't for a minute regret the treatment. They also stock all the ESPA goodies if you don't fancy ordering online.
The price for the treatment is currently £38 for 55 minutes.

Just stumbled across this lovely beauty site: http://www.baobella.com/ it hasn't launched yet but is due to be next month. Can't wait to see it!
