Pure Spa...

Trying to juggle full-time work and blogging can be a bit of a balancing act and so sometimes it is nice to take a side step and unwind.

Last Wednesday,myself and a few other bloggers attended an event at Pure Spa in Aberdeen. This was a chance for us to experience just some of the popular treatments on offer.

After snacking on some food and catching up with the other lovely bloggers, we each randomly pulled out a spa treatment from a bag.  The treatments on offer were: a Thai Bundle massage, a relaxing massage, a deep tissue massage, a hot stone massage and a facial. My treatment which I picked out was a facial. I had never had a facial previously so this was a new venture for me.

For someone who has never had a facial before, I must say that it was definitely a lovely experience.  Before I had my facial, I was initially having some issues with my skin in the form of blemishes in certain areas. However, afterwards my facial, these areas had cleared up wonderfully. My therapist, Hayley, was lovely to talk to and also recommended a couple of Elemis products - Herbal Lavender Repair mask (£28) and SOS Emergency Cream (£51).

Before treatments, we were split into two groups and while one group had the treatment, the other group was treated to a file and polish using some fabulous Leighton Denny products. As I was in the first group for treatments, after de-robing and returning to the front of the spa, it was time for nails.

With Leighton Denny nail varnishes, there are so many gorgeous colours that it is almost impossible to decide on one. However, as my usual nail style is bright and usually with some form of glitter, I decided to opt for a dark colour and went with the shade 'No Comment'.

'No comment' is a gorgeous dark shade.  Depending on how much light you have, it is one of those colours that changes in the light. I must say that after it was applied to my nails, I fell in love with it even more. Even more, this stayed on for about a week without any major damage. Win!

Thank you to Pure Spa Aberdeen for organising another lovely event - I'm already planning on trying to make it a monthly thing :).
