Salon beauty in your own home


Trips to the beauty salon are timely, costly, and sometimes just not possible. When life gets in the way, we simply can’t take a chunk out of our day to indulge in a nail treatment, remove unwanted hair or get a golden tan. We hear you guys and gals, we hear you!

To remedy this, we’ve put together a quick cheat-sheet for all you busy beauty-lovers that want to achieve the same salon results in your own time, wherever you are. Top up your tan just before the school run, layer on a nail treatment in between meetings and de-fuzz in front of the TV. Whatever your schedule, we’re here to keep you looking and feeling fabulous.

Nailed it!

The new ProSpa collection from OPI has been developed with facial skincare-quality ingredients, perfected for your hands and feet. This gorgeous set is the perfect introduction to the range, featuring the Micro-Exfoliating Hand Polish to help smooth rough skin, the Nail & Cuticle Oil which restores essential moisture, and finally the Protective Hand Serum which helps to hydrate and reduce the visible signs of ageing on your hands. No one need know your perfectly soft and smooth results were refined on your journey home from work!

Fight the fuzz

The No!no! uses super-clever Thermicon technology to help remove hair from all over your face and body easily and efficiently. It’s perfect for keeping everything smooth and even works on sensitive areas such as your face and bikini line, as well as hard-to-treat spots such as ankles, knees, elbows and in between eyebrows. We have a fantastic offer available from midnight on Saturday 17th June and all day Sunday on this gorgeous English garden-patterned set. Snap it up if you’re after salon-quality hair removal that you can replicate in the comfort of your own home.


The good weather is finally here (for now) and… oh no… it’s time to get the legs out! If this spate of sunshine has you in a panic about revealing pale pins, never fear! These Illuminating Body Drops from Tan-Luxe can be mixed into your existing body moisturiser to give you an even, streak-free glow with no extra time, effort or fuss – see you later, spray tan! Now where’s our favourite little summer dress gone?…

Luscious locks

When was the last time you managed to fit in a professional blow dry? We can’t remember either! Save trips to the hairdresser for extra-special occasions and put the Sheer Volume Ionic Rotating Heated Brush from Babyliss to the test instead. With three heat settings and two rotation directions, this genius hair tool gives you body, bounce and shine – plus it’s perfect for restoring the va-va-voom to ‘next-day’ hair.

We hope we’ve inspired you to scribble out the salon appointment and pencil in a little you-time whenever you can manage it instead. We’d also love to read your own top tips for recreating professional-style beauty treatments at home. If there’s something you’d like to share, leave a comment below!
