Today I died and went to heaven. This is the most accurate way I can describe my time at Woodlands Aesthetic & Beauty Clinic. I was very kindly invited to their newest salon in the Baltic Triangle for a complimentary beauty package. I was offered a choice of a LVL lashes and brow styling treatment, or a dermaquest facial and nails treatment. I had been meaning to get my nails done properly again for such a long time, so I opted for the second package. I was greeted with a very warm welcome from the lovely Woodlands’ ladies Franki and Antonia when I arrived, and I instantly felt at home.
First things first, we got down to the nails. I had a shellac polish done on my nails, which is one of the most popular treatments at Woodlands due to its glossy, chip resistant colour. The polish lasts up to two weeks and it doesn’t need any drying time after application – major brownie points! I chose the colour ‘asphalt’ which is a really lovely deep grey, and I cannot stop looking at them. Antonia is absolutely amazing at painting nails, and I have never had a professional nail job done with so much precision and care as I had at Woodlands. As it’s been winter, and my hands have been frequently exposed to the cold, my nails have really paid the price, and over the past few weeks they have been cracking and splitting. To combat this, Antonia put on some almond nail oil after the polish was applied, to help strengthen and hydrate my nails. They feel significantly healthier already.
After my nail treatment I headed upstairs to the other treatment room for my facial. The room was kitted out with lots of candles, relaxing music, and a bed equipped with a heated blanket, which was a lovely added touch. It’s safe to say I did not want to climb out when it was all over! The treatment that I received was the Agera Oxy Bright facial, which uses antibacterial products. This means that you won’t suffer any unwanted breakouts afterwards. Celebrities often use it before they attend events mainly for this reason. The treatment lasted about half an hour, and was probably the most relaxing 30 minutes of my life. The facial is an oxygenating treatment, which works to hydrate, purify, and detoxify the skin. The oxygenating peptides work their way into the skin and essentially act as a heating mask to increase your circulation for a more even and bright complexion.
I can really see a difference just after one treatment, as my face definitely looks brighter, and feels incredibly soft. I will definitely be back for more in the near future and I would recommend this treatment if you want to quickly and easily revive tired, dull skin. It would also be perfect if you want to pamper yourself before a night out, as it turns your skin into a perfectly smooth base to apply makeup.
Woodlands cater to every beauty need you can think of, and offer an array of treatments including waxing, makeup and botox. They are well worth paying a visit to whether that is to their salon in the Baltic Triangle, Aigburth, or Woolton.
Thank you so much Woodlands for making me feel like a million bucks!
