I don’t know about you but I don’t deal with stress very well. I often find I can deal with things pretty well until I find myself in a pool of tears and can’t work out what exactly made me get there at that time. I try and find little ways to treat myself and take time out every so often to prevent me getting to that stage and a good facial or manicure is always the first thing I try and do. I love that it is for no one else, it is pure relaxing ‘me’ time and I always walk away feeling like a new woman. With this in mind and some pretty stressful stuff going on at the moment I headed into La Belle Beauty in my home village of Cheadle for some much needed R&R.
La Belle is located on Wilmslow Road so just down from the main High Street in Cheadle village. They can take care of all your beauty needs from hair and make up to facials and manicures. You can also get the latest facial technique which uses Argan Oil Liquid Gold – the highest quality Moroccan Argan Oil infused with 24 carat gold. May truly works wonders and gave me some fantastic advice on how to look after my skin better following my treatment. I loved the feel of the oil and the way she used steam to help the ingredients work into the skin more quickly. There are some amazing products you can buy which contain this wonder oil. They’re at the luxury end of my price range though so they’ll be going on my Christmas wish list that’s for sure.
After my facial I was offered a freshly brewed herbal tea and taken back downstairs to get my nails done. Having recently moved house I am ashamed to say they were an absolute mess. All different lengths with bits of polish here and there, absolutely awful and not me in the slightest.
I’ve had countless manicures in my time. Some good, some ok, some pretty poor. This one, I’m not going to lie, was the best I’ve had in a long time. My nails were filed and shaped to the perfect ‘natural square’ in minutes before being polished so evenly they looked like acrylics.
Please ignore my nibbled cuticles, bad habit of mine, but see? They’re perfect and I love Barbie pink colour. I’m holding onto summer, or what we had of one, for as long as I can.
My visit to La Belle was perfect and seamless from start to finish. I was shown around, pampered and had to think about nothing but myself and my thoughts, just what I needed.
I visited the salon as a guest and wasn’t asked to pay for my treatments although I will be going back as a paying customer next month for my regular visit.
