Beauty Review: Liz Earle Healthy Beautiful Skin Facial

On a mild and murky Friday morning, the Three Amigos (Sarah, Grace and I) headed of to Chelsea to indulge in a bi- annual treat, a Liz Earle facial.

This was Sarah's first time trying the Liz Earle skin care, but the Mother and I have been avid followers of their skin care philosophy for years. The facials are always a delight, and on this trip we decided to the try the 60 minute long 'Healthy Beautiful Skin'.

The facial included a double cleanse, exfoliation, lymph drainage massage, mask and moisturise. My favourite part of the facial was in the intense chest and shoulder massage, whilst my cleansing clay mask developed.

The lymph massage medium used was the Liz Earle superbalm- an all purpose product which is great for spots, bites, dry skin, irritations, the works! The massage really improved my skin circulation, puffy eyes and tension headaches. I thoroughly enjoyed my facial, I left the London treatment rooms with smooth, buttery, glowing skin- so much so I rebooked for the exact same treatment in three months time!

The Liz Earle 'Healthy Beautiful Facial' is available at both the London and Guildford salons, it lasts 60 minutes and costs £70. I recommend booking three months in advance and they get booked up super quick. Check out their website here for loads more treatment and product info.

NOTD: OPI My Private Jet

My nail varnish shade of choice this week is OPI's My Private Jet. I have had this colour for my collection for approximately a year and it is fast becoming a staple. It is rare that I fall in love a shade that contains any sort of shimmer or pearlescence, but it is utterly gorgeous. It falls into the merky, muggy, 'greige' family which I am accustomed to and I hope you all enjoy it or at least check it out.

*shot taken with my blackberry, any nail varnish is always applied with seche vite base and top coat*

Can you recommend any other OPI shades for me?

NOTD: OPI You Don't Know Jaque

This muggy, mushroom brown shade is the Chanel Particuliere for the middle classes and I am in LOVE with it! This is the second bottle and it is a true nail laquer classic that needs to be in your collection.

What is your favourite muggy/ neutral shade?
