I'm a firm believer of taking care of yourself and your skin and for the last couple of years I've been doing just that with monthly facials and a little TLC. Espa Skincare is where I usually head for facials which is situated in John Lewis West Quay but the only thing that lets them down is that the treatment room is smack bang in the middle of the department floor so you can never quite fully relax.
Thankfully for me I've come across somewhere that is in the perfect location with beautiful views and not a shop assistant in sight plus they use Espa Skincare. The Ocean Rooms in Ocean Village, Southampton has fast become a favourite of mine and many others. The decor is luxurious, the therapists lovely and they do a range of treatments for men and women.
I've been to The Ocean Rooms twice now for 55 minute Skin Radiance facials performed by Robyn each time. Robyn is full of information when it comes to skin and she really understands when you're talking about any concerns or worries you may have, she also makes me feel very relaxed and comfortable during my facials. The facial rooms are good sized, with beautifully dimmed lights, heated massage beds if required and relaxing music playing in the background. I could easily sleep there.
At the beginning of each of my facials Robyn soaks cotton pads full of the products we would use during the treatment. Espa works through sensory so the product that you're most drawn to by smell is what your skin is crying out for. It's incredibly interesting and I always surprise myself with what I choose. I'm a huge fan of Espa as I've said previously and I use a lot of their products at home in my skincare routine so I love seeing what I choose during my facials.
I always have the 55 minute treatments because I feel like they're just the right amount of time to switch off, relax and let your skin drink up what's needed. Robyn is definitely one of my favourite therapists I've visited as she explains the products she is using if I would like her too or she just lets me lay there and practically nap. The Ocean Rooms beauty rooms do a range of treatments so even if you're not looking at booking in for a facial you could always head for a nail treatment, hair refresh or tanning. There really is something for everyone.
