LIFE: The Indulgance Hour at Intu Trafford Centre

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to br invited by the Intu Trafford Centre to take part in their Indulgence Hour.  Basically, this is a unique concept where you can have some pampering in a short amout of time, designed for busy people who don't have hours to spend in the salon, in a nut shell, people like me!  I'd love to be one of those girls who has regular facials and massages but I'm normally too busy/lazy to do it, so this was a real treat and was only an hour of my time, perfect!

I started off with a facial at The Face Doctor.  The Face Doctor offers rejuvenation treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and fillers as well as non invasive treatments in their gorgeous spa situated near John Lewis.   I was given a skin analysis by Carolyn, a fully trained medical practicioner, and was asked what I wanted to achieve.  My skin's been looking really dull due to the cold weather here in Manchester, so I wanted something highly moisturising but would also wake up my skin. She started with a skin boosting mask which contained acai and goji berries, which smelt soooooo good, followed by a rejuvenating eye gel and a retinol moisturiser to plump up your skin.  After the 15 minute treatment my skin felt amazing, and I will definitely be returning.




Once my treatment had finished I was lucky enough to be given samples of all of the creams used (which all smell AMAZING BTW!)plus one of the in house created body butters to try, in English Apple and Summer Plum with regenerating hyaluronan.  I can honestly say this is one of the best moisturisers I've ever used, and have been singing its praises to anyone who will listen, so its definitely worth a try.

Next stop was L'Ocitane for a hand massage.  I love L'Ocitaine creams and suffer from really dry skin on my hands so I was really looking forward to this and it didn't disappoint.  The 15 minute treatment included a scrub, and oil soak and then a massage with intensely moisturising hand cream. My hands felt super soft after.  Obvs no pictures, my hands were too busy being pampered!



Then it was onto Body Shop for a make over.  Now baring in mind this was a Wednesday night, I was conscious about looking overly done up in the Trafford Centre, so I wanted something quite natural, but  also something different from the greys and browns I normally wear on my eyes.  My only stipulation was that I needed to have eye liner, I just cannot cope without it!  The make up artist used a mixture of rusts and a red on my eyes which looked scary in the palette but I actually really liked the effect of, so its defintely a look I'll be trying to recreate at home.



If you're short on time but want a post shopping pamper, I'd definitely recommend the Intu Trafford Centre's Indulgence Hour, I came away feeling like a new woman!!
