Clarins Gold Salon Cardiff Review


Hey I've been super busy these last few months but I'm backish... this is the 2nd guest blog - I'll return next week.

My first contributor was Wayne & the 2nd is the lovely Jules my BFF extradoinaire.

With a week off work and no plans other than family commitments and housework I decided to treat myself to an afternoon of pampering. I scoured the internet for the establishment which would best suit my requirements choosing ClarinsGold Salon based in Central Pharmacy & Perfumery, Wellfield Road Cardiff as it seemed to fit all my criteria.

Having booked the Gold Salon Back massage express facial and scalp I set off for my treat wearing no make-up and hair that really could have done with a freshen up. On arrival I was greeted by Carly, a happy, natural girl who instantly put me at ease. Carly explained the process, in which order the treatments would be done and exactly what I was to do. Unlike other experiences Carly listened to my individual requirements in a highly professional manner, there were no condescending comments, pitying looks at my aged face and body or any patronizing suggestions or remarkable promises at how I could achieve the impossible. I instantly felt at ease with no nonsense Carly and in the privacy of a warm room got undressed and ready for my back massage.

The treatments were all really good; I opted for a medium back massage and true to her word Carly delivered a massage that was firm but not painful, gentle but not feather like. The massage oil was warm at no point did I feel chilled. The facial was delicious, Carly used a multitude of Clarins lotions and potions to cleans, tone, exfoliate, firm, lift and generally rejuvenate my tired skin. The head massage felt like an added extra in the middle of the facial treatments, the bonus ball had been drawn and I was a winner.

Lastly I endured the pain and pleasure of an eyebrow wax. Carly discussed with me the look I was going for and made some very practical suggestions which do seem achievable before applying the hot wax and getting on with the job in hand.

Gonna get my pamper on
I purchased a couple of serums, one for eyes and the other for anti-ageing, the products are not cheap so I really hope to see some results.

All in all a very good experience and one I will definitely be repeating. I would highly recommend Clarins Gold Salon and if you are lucky enough to have Carly to do you treatments you will understand why.
