I had a Dermalogica prescriptive backcial. An excellent treatment and I was given some really good advice on skincare and preventing further breakouts. Highly recommended.

Lovely lady who did the treatments for me, wonderful atmosphere - very calming, and I felt completely at ease there. I would definitely go again.

The result was not bad, but I have had better treatments, some hair was broken instead of taken out and grew again very quickly.

Really good mini manicure, my nails lasted the whole weekend and looked very polish. Very nice and friendly staff, took the time to try on different polishes before I decided on one. Planning to go there again very soon!

The overall experience was quite good, however, the lady did rush with the manicure, it was a bit painful and at the end I had blood running from my cuticle. The good thing about the place: tools were clean. I am not planning to come back.

It really bugs me when you book an appointment through wahanda and the staff dont check so there is a wait while they try to get some one instore to do whatever it is you want done. But once they found the lady that could do my eyebrows she was BRILLIANT. cant fault her

My skin feels wonderful today and I was worried I was going to be a bit raw as my skin is so sensitive and it felt quite active but really skin was just in a state and the redness and inflamed areas are gone. Thank you.

I hadn't had a Brazilian in 3 months. It wasn't the fault of the staff, but it really hurt. Luckily, Nicole (the waxer) suggested finishing using hot wax. I hadn't known that hot wax was an option - and it was better after that. Beauty is pain after all.

Great facials, very friendly and helpful staff. The pharmacy upstairs has a good variety of products and nice deals.
I will definitely come back and refer to my friends.

The venue was a little odd being under a pharmacy and not how the pictures showed.
However it was clean and calming and the staff were great. I've booked to go again.

I had a facial and a back facial and I find the beauty therapist did an excellent job and I felt very comfortable. I'd go again and would recommend it to others. Only downside is that it is a bit pricey, but with a Wahanda discount, things are actually affordable.

A nice, clean, quiet location situated in a great pharmacy selling many hard-to-find natural products. Friendly, professional therapist and staff. Quite a thorough pedicure but a little rough (some painful scrubbing and not enough care cutting cuticles - got a nick on my toe...). Also minimal time for drying polish and I got a few smudges when putting my sandals on, even though therapist said it would be fine. Good quality overall, though, and the colour has lasted really well.

Very sweet and accommodating team. Offered tea and water. Most importantly they use very good brands! I would come back.

im a local resident but have decided you get better value and decent service at boots or the garden pharmancy and whole foods. i purchased a shower gel today but changed my mind on the fragrance whilst still at point of sale. when i got home the new shower gel was 20p less in price. i understand thats not alot but i know retail and trading standards you shouldnt have something ticketed and not offer a refund for the difference. 1 the staff shouldve noticed 2 the pharmacist kept repeating that out of goodwill he had allowed me to select a different smelling shower gel from the same brand even though it was priced differently and i hadnt even left the shop yet so all still at point of sale. bad service bad value poor staff. lesson learnt.
