Review: The Chelsea Clinic & Spa

So a couple of weeks ago I was treated to a 90 minute luxury facial at The Chelsea Clinic & Spa. Let me start of by saying that this facial was completely different to any other facial that I have previously received. I arrived at the spa & was given a short form to fill out about my skin, any concerns & problematic areas etc I was then lead through the beautiful spa to the room where my treatment was being done. Can I just point out that this spa is beautiful, tranquil & definitely a space to relax & rejuvenate.
The Chelsea Clinic & Spa is a unique place, entirely devoted to beauty and well-being. We are highly respected within the beauty industry and widely regarded as one of the most innovative and Top Aesthetic / Anti-Ageing Clinics in the country.

Do you have oily skin?

Everyone that knows me knows that I struggle with extremely oily skin. My face is usually a massive shine ball before we have even hit 12 o'clock. Don't get me wrong there are loads of great benefits to having oily skin. Sebum (oil) can be bothersome at times, but it is actually good for your skin’s health. It has been reported that oily skin types actually age slower than other skin types because of its natural moisturizing effects and the antioxidant properties of the sebum. Win in some ways is a massive win if you think about it. But truth be told, while we all are wanting desperately to age gracefully we also wanna look great now and not having fill a jar of oil while we at it.
So for the past couple of weeks I had the opportunity to try out the Oh So Heavenly Bye- Bye Shine range. Let me start of by saying that I was really skeptical with regards to whether it was gonna work. I mean I usually I don't expect much from skincare products that are affordable. Wow that statement sounds rather dumb when I read it again? We usually expect the expensive, high end products to do the job better. But boy oh boy did these products impress me.

Review: Ohana Beauty & Wellness Spa

So for the past couple of months I have been extremely busy with exams and work. As soon as I wrote my final exam I was so keen to unwind and have a little bit of me time and what better way to unwind than with a full body massage & a rejuvenating facial. Ohana Beauty & Wellness Spa is situated at 36 Wood Drive Table View, Cape Town & is really the perfect location to relax and get away from life's stressful elements.
Even though I visited the Spa specifically for a massage & facial, that is definitely not all that they do.
