I’m sorry that I haven’t posted on here in a hot minute, but I am back today with a review of the amazing spa day that I went on before I went on holiday!
About Branches of Beauty:
The two lovely ladies Diane and Ann who own and run Branches have both had over twenty years experience in the Beauty Industry, not only working in spas but teaching beauty therapy, and so before you walk through the door you know you’re in good hands.
I first discovered Branches of Beauty (check our their Facebook page here) whilst visiting The Warbreck Garden Centre in Ormskirk for lunch. The spa is located right next door in The Lodge, and the quaintness of it instantly appealed. A spa inside a picturesque lodge, surrounded by the beauty of a garden centre? Count me in!
Let’s talk treatments:
Picturesque location aside, the fact of the matter is that a spa day at Branches of Beauty is amazing value for money, and so reasonably priced compared to other, more established spa’s. You can find their full price list on the website here, but my mum and I decided on the Signature Full Body Treatment and a pedicure each.
The Signature treatment is usually £55 each but if you book with a friend (which I recommend, FYI!) then it’s only £100 for the both of you, for 100 minutes worth of super relaxing treatments. Included in this package is a full body brush, a back exfoliation, a full body massage, a facial and head massage, and it’s all topped off with some warm body oil.
The whole treatment was amazing and my skin was glowing when I left (even if I do say so myself!) but my favourite part was definitely the full body massage, as they use a warm herbal press that smells divine and feels so soft and beautiful on the skin.
I also wanted to mention that in Branches of Beauty they use all Neal’s Yard products which are all natural and really good quality, and I appreciate this a lot. Their prices are super reasonable anyway but knowing that good quality products are being used on my body makes me feel better!
Moving on to the pedicure, we chose to have the Luxury Pedicure with Paraffin Wax, which costs £28 (full price details can be found on their website). If you’ve never had a pedicure with paraffin wax before, they basically paint your feet with hot (not burny hot, nice hot) wax before putting your feet in warm booties and letting it set. Not only does this feel heavenly but when the wax is removed, your feet feel so soft it’s untrue!
The actual pedicure was done using CND Vinylux which is one of the BEST nail polishes around, which I know because three weeks and one holiday later, my pedicure is still unchipped!
I definitely want to have another spa day at Branches of Beauty. Diane and Ann were both so lovely, the treatments were amazing, and to make things better, it didn’t break the bank! I cannot wait for my next spa day, and if you’ve visited Branches of Beauty (or do visit after reading this post) be sure to let me know your thoughts on my new fave spa!
