Indulge in some pre-party pampering in the form of an expert list of Citizen Femme’s selected beauty fairy godmothers to get you party ready.
Christmas Spa-rkle at Cowshed
Cowshed Spas are great to hang out with the girls, and eat, drink, shop at the same time. Treat yourself to the ultimate Cowshed experience. A two-hour pampering session with a tension-easing back massage, a rejuvenating facial and a speedy mani-pedi served with a glass of bubbles.
If you want something a bit snappier, book in for the Light Salon’s LED facial. It only takes 15 minutes and you can enjoy it on its own or while having a manicure or pedicure. As well as giving you a radiant glow that lasts for days, a single session will also boost your mood and reduce stress, as LED therapy oxygenates the blood, lowers stress hormones and boosts the immune system.
Personal shopping at The Mandeville Hotel
Whether its your own party wear or your Christmas shopping list, book in in-house stylist Laetita Tomasso at The Mandeville Hotel. From half days or full days and overnight stays, stay in Marylebone, London’s coolest neighbourhood and get VIP access to the best shops, deluxe changing rooms and a gift buying service. It includes a pre-stay consultation, lunch or dinner and champagne during your stay. Upgrade your experience and book into one of the beautifully designed Maison Christian Lacroix rooms on the Fifth Floor for a full fashionista treat.
Nails & Brows
Sherrille Riley, beauty entrepreneur and brow expert, founded this luxury Mayfair beauty boutique, with an enviable client list of beauty insiders and A – list celebrities. Sherille has perfected her craft in brow architecture, combining skill in brow shaping with a great proficiency in colour matching (which she learned from her time at Daniel Hersheson’s with their top colourists.) Go for the game-changing brow and repair over-tweezed, over-waxed, un-styled brows. Or the new AUDREY brow, inspired Audrey Hepburn, her signature style which instantly lifts the face.
Christmas Choco Paradise at The Landmark
Escape the pre-Christmas shopping frenzy and head to The Landmark Hotel’s Spa & Health Club for a very chocolatey spa experience. The Choco Paradise treatment begins with a milk foot bath followed by a rich head-to-toe chocolate scrub. After a gentle body exfoliation, you’ll be enveloped in a velvety chocolate wrap. The experience is finished with a relaxing scalp massage. All the decadence without the calories.
Showstopping blowdries at Blow Ltd
Salons are wonderful. But sometimes staying at home in your dressing gown and having an expert stylist come to you in your home, office or hotel room to get you ready works best. Blow LTD is a genius service which offers waxing, massage, yoga, pilates, blow dries, nails and make-up makeovers. The on demand service is quick, efficient and the therapists are all brilliant.
Hangover Cure from FaceGym
Hangovers. Uff. December hails them. And don’t we all agree that the best way to recover is with a Bloody Mary? This is the “Bloody Mary for your face”. A face workout that detoxes and drains away excess fluid with a signature cardio workout and then blasts away the night before with a hydrating mask to infuse the skin with vitamins and revive your natural glow.
