Clarins 'Mum and Me Time' at Ragdale Hall Spa



Life got a little crazy recently and some me time became very necessary and what better way to spend it than with my mum, in the countryside at a spa.

A three-hour-something road trip up the M1 took my mum and I to Ragdale Hall Spa in Leicestershire, and boy did we have a great weekend.

Two days of pure luxury soaking up the fresh country air in our fluffy White gowns meant we had time to relax away from daily stresses and just be. It's often only when you take a moment to breathe in an environment of silence and calm, that you realise just how much you needed that moment to breathe, chill and unwind.

Ragdale Hall is a traditional Victorian building and homes both traditional and modern luxury with state of the art equipment and facilities, current brands and fabulous treatments. 

The Thermal Spa which is made up of both an indoor and outdoor heated waterfall pool, a candle pool, a thought zone, a colour flow cave, a volcanic salt bath, a scented room, a rose sauna and a cave experience shower was a favourite of ours and so I'm sure it will come as no surprise when I tell you that we spent the majority of our time in there, switching between facilities.

In between pruning our fingers and toes, we were very kindly treated to a Mum and Me Time Clarins Serenity Facial which was an absolute dream. 40 minutes of treatment which included an in depth skincare consultation and a Clarins gift of an Eau Dynamisante Fragrance, Moisturising Body Lotion and a Clarins Beauty Bag, meant that we had the opportunity to relax even further- so much so that I actually fell asleep mid facial. It was such a nice treat and it was so lovely to be pampered alongside my mum, who following the treatment was floating on cloud nine. 
With the added bonus of the clean air and spa facilities, my skin had never looked and felt so clear and I can't wait to continue to use the Clarins products that were recommended for me to use day to day.

Breakfast in bed, an incredible three course buffet lunch and dinner were equally beautiful and going to enjoy them were the only times that we were away from the tranquil settings of the spa. Dressed in our gowns and slippers for mealtime was an extra special treat for us and made the days even more relaxing and I now just wish it was socially acceptable to dine out like that everywhere. I'm a girls girl and love getting dressed up for fancy meals, but in that environment with the calming nature of the trip, dressing gowns were the only way and it was absolutely completely heavenly. 

Set in the middle of nowhere, with bunnies hopping into the distant fields, Ragdale Hall is the perfect spa getaway for all ages, shapes and sizes and I for sure can't wait to return. 

Whether it's gym classes, swimming, treatments, garden games or spa facilities you're into, there's something for everyone, although having experienced the most gorgeous quality time with my mum, I can't recommend taking your mum along for the Clarins Mum and Me Time Package enough.

I'd love to know if you've been to Ragdale Hall or whether you're interested in visiting. What's your favourite spa treatment?

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads

First Aid Beauty's Facial Radiance Pads- where do I start? These are just what I've been on the search for and they have become a very welcomed part of my skincare regime.

I've been a fan of acid exfoliator pads for some time now, but the ones that I've used in the past have all come with pretty hefty price tags. Now on a bit more of a budget, I've been looking for a more purse friendly alternative.

 Having researched these a little bit before purchasing, I kind of knew I was onto a winner but nothing quite prepared me for just how good these would be on my skin.

Designed to exfoliate, tone and brighten, these pads contain lactic and glycolic acids which always work absolute wonders for my skin. Alongside Cucumber, Lemon Peel and Licorice Root, this potion of goodness soaked up into pads leaves your skin glowing and smooth and both looking and feeling incredibly clear with my pores noticeably reduced, which is something I personally look for in products.

I would say that these are a lot more on the gentle side than similar pads that I've used, which may be why the price tag isn't as extreme, but they do just as excellent a job and I'm so thrilled with the results.

I sweep these over my face after I cleanse in the evening and I really couldn't recommend them enough.

Available to buy on Feel Unique, First Aid Beauty's Facial Radiance Pads are available a pot of 20 (£12.00) and a pot of 60 (£22.00).
