Some part of the legs after waxing were still with hair...The room wasn't very clean. Price was ok...overall if you need quick wax without spend a lot of money it is ok.

it was ok, handy to have in that location but would have expected more professional venue and ambiance for being part of a pharmacy. Therapist didnt hold skin down while waxing so unnecessarily painful and i bruised.

Absolutely lovely lady who my appointment was with. The only negative thing to say is that I booked it assuming it was a hot wax wax, not strip wax. A lot of strip waxes on Treatwell are labelled as such, whilst the hot waxes seem to be just labelled as Waxing.

Excellent massage. A brief on the aromatherapy scents used would have been even better.

The eyelash perm and dye is brilliant - the therapist is very experienced and careful. It takes a bit of time but is a life-changer of treatment. I will be going back every couple of months for one. No need to wear any eye make up and with mascara, my lashes look like fakes ones!

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.

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.
