I really don’t have the patience for a ‘luxury’ facial – not least because of the horrible sense of isolation when left swathed in hot towels in a darkened room to listen to irritating bird tweeting music while the therapist goes off for a fag and some coffee. Life is just too short! But, I just discovered the Lisa Hoffman Spa Facial Packette that lets me do a fabulous facial at home – with no birds or ‘relaxing’ trickling water cds to set my teeth on edge. With 10 one dose ampules including cleanser (although not quite enough), two face masks – one clay and one moisturising, two lip treatments (the lip moisturiser is so good I’m buying the full size) and eye care, all parts of the face are catered for! And, it’s a mere 20 minutes from dull to glowing. At 21 pounds, it’s a very sound skin investment for those whom a salon experience is a no-no.
