Holiday Essentials (from cat in chipping sodbury)

Hello everyone, I have waited ALL SUMMER, I am finally going on my much anticipated holiday to cruise around Jamaica and Mexico and in
*true beauty therapist style*, I have STOCKED UP on all my essential
beauty goodies!

D20 Hydration spray – not only used to fix my makeup but also to
refresh it after my 10 HOUR FLIGHT! – Ready for the paps of course 😉

Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer- On holiday I don’t want to wear
‘foundation’ so this tinted moisturizer is perfect as it evens my

 complexion and with an SPF of 15 I can ensure my skin is safe in the
 sun! – Sun is very aging on the skin!

The retractable handi brush – This is a beauty of a product, its a
 brush with a re-fillable base so you don’t have to carry around you
powder AND a brush, it’s an all in one! And I have filled it with my
next item….

Powder Me SPF – Dry Sunscreen – HERO PRODUCT ALERT! This is maybe the
product I am most excited by, it is a powder SPF, similar to your
loose foundation but it doesn’t provide ‘coverage’ like a foundation,
you can simply top up throughout the day on top of your makeup without
looking ‘caked’ OR after you’ve been in the pool and hate sticky sun
cream, pop this on your face, neck, decollete and maybe your shoulders
too as we all know they burn first! It comes in a pretty little pot
with a mirror on top and is applied with a sponge attached to the lid
i however, have put it in my Handi brush to save crucial packing

Enlighten Concealer – an essential for those under eye circles and
spots! I’m most defiantly going to get bitten and this will help to
cover up not only my dark eyes (from having so much fun of course, not
boozing at all ….. ;)) but also on my legs when I wear a pretty
evening dress!

Great Shapes Brow Kit – This pocket sized brow perfecter is most
certainly our most popular product, one circle is the brow powder to
define and create shape,the other white circle is wax to keep unruly
brows in place!

Pure Pressed Base Mineral Foundation – a Foundation in itself but can be used to ‘set’ your liquid foundation afterwards, also has an SPF 20
and gives great coverage all on it’s own and lasts ALL DAY!

Last but of course not Least- icing on the cake – or lips 😉 Lip
Fixation Lip stain and Gloss – This WILL NOT BUDGE! Kiss Proof without
transfer, nor on your wine glass either 😉 I’ve chosen the shade
‘Craving’ as it is a neutral and elegant colour suitable for day or

My last day in salon will be 3rd November and I will be back in salon
 on 23rd November!

See you all soon!

Give somebody a beautiful Christmas with Victoria Rose

Christmas season is well and truly upon us, and if you’re the organised type chances are you’ve already started drawing up your Christmas shopping list. However, for most of us (ourselves included!) Christmas shopping season fills us with dread! The crowds, the stress, the cold…not to mention trying to think of the ideal gift for someone!
Well lucky for you we’re about to make your Christmas shopping a whole lot easier!
Beauty treatments and products are the ideal Christmas present, whoever you need to buy for. After the stress of the Christmas rush there’s nothing quite like a bit of pampering, so we’ve asked Becky and her team of beauty therapists what their ideal Christmas gift would be from our extensive list of products and treatments to give you a little inspiration!
My choice would be a Microdermabrasion facial using Pevonia products specially chosen to treat my skin. A result driven treatment it’s great for reducing fine lines and pigmentation and for brightening the skin – perfect for this time of the year!
My ideal treatment for Christmas would be a full body Pevonia exfoliation, with a complimentary all over moisturising oil. Deeply hydrating and very warm, relaxing treatment – perfect for the run up to all those Christmas celebrations!
This time of year can be tough on the eyes, so I’d love Pevonia’s eye gel. Highly nourishing and perfect for rehydrating dry eyes.
I’d choose a luxury manicure. The manicure includes paraffin wax and heated mitts, which is a perfect winter warmer and leaves your hands incredibly smooth. It’s the ideal gift to introduce someone to a whole new level of pampering!
There’s nothing like a full body massage to relieve the stress of the Christmas period, and everybody loves a good massage – it’s the perfect gift!
I’d choose a Sienna X ‘Tonight’s the Night’ Spray tan, which is ready in just 2-3 hours, very natural looking and perfect for the party season.
All treatments can be pre-booked for that special someone, but if you’d rather let them choose their own perfect treat then you can buy our gift vouchers online and in both our Southville and Chipping Sodbury salons. What’s more, if you spend over £100 on vouchers you’ll be treated to a mini treatment to enjoy yourself – an early Christmas present just for you!
