A Visit To Pure Spa London | UK Wedding Blog

I have honestly never been so looking forward to a spa trip – I had to wait for this one for a little longer than usual as most Spa treatments are only suitable for pregnant women over 3 months (there’s not a lot beauty-wise you can have done in the first three months, so not only do you feel rubbish and sick, you also look a hot mess too) and I was more than ready to be pampered!

My nearest Pure Spa is located in The City, about a 20 minute walk from Liverpool Street Train Station on Mark Lane, and is part of an award winning group of Spas, the rest of which are located throughout Scotland.  As you can see it’s pretty unassuming from the outside, and in this case my verdict of the experience was it was a complete triumph of quality treatments and great staff over more overstated, instagram worthy salons {I’ve been to a fair few now, so I would like to think I know!}  The philosophy behind Pure Spas is simple – there to offer great quality spa and beauty treatments in the heart of the city to those who may be time shy, and I found they did just that, with staff who were super pleasant and professional, and a spa with a generally really calm and unfussy vibe.

On arrival I was shown to the locker room, where you are given a purple waffle robe and flip flops to wear once you move into the treatment room area, which definitely makes life super easy – I didn’t change out of this until after my pedicure had finished, which means you don’t have to worry about freshly applied products on your clothes. The locker room also has a vanity with hairdryer, shower and hair straighteners if you are on lunch break/going out/like to face the world looking more presentable. Once my lovely therapist Nady had taken me through to one of their five treatment rooms, she explained each part of the treatment, which started with my hour long massage – one of the best I’ve ever had – and never more needed than when you are an aching preggo! She began my facial by asking me what skin concerns I have, and then I lay back and to be honest, drifted in and out of sleep for half an hour {oops!}.

 

Once awake again, I was left to change back into my robe, and then taken to the bespoke pedicure area, where therapist Sophie gave me a great pedi – including shaping, buffing, cuticle tidy, nourishing foot cream, base coat, two coats of colour and top coat, which 4 days on still looks perfect. I left after a couple of hours feeling genuinely pretty awesome.

Pure Spa accommodated me with a Pure Pregnancy Massage for 60 mins {£78} which is targeted to relieve swelling and back tension (none of the former, plenty of the latter), followed by a Pro-Collagen Elemis Facial for 30 mins {beginning at £50 for 30 mins} and then a Pure Pedicure using Leighton Denny polish which begins at £30 for 30 mins.   You can book via their website, call or use their iPhone App, and the London spa is open from 8am – 9pm from Monday – Friday, 9am – 6pm on Saturdays and 10am – 6pm on Sundays ~ www.purespauk.com.
