Over the last couple of months most of us have started to try our hands at DIY beauty treatments.
With the whole country (and most of the world) in lockdown due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, popping to the salon has – for the moment – become a thing of the past.
We’re all missing fresh hair highlights, a quick trim and a new colour on our grotesquely grown-out nails.
And don’t get us started on our cracked heels, bare lashes and overgrown eyebrows.
So now that we’re coming to the end of our sixth week in lockdown, most of us have managed to rustle up some semblance of skill when it comes to how to do our own pedicures, grooming our own brows and doing our best to make our locks look somewhat presentable.
Unfortunately, one thing we can’t bring home is the glorious spa.
So beauty icon Charlotte Tilbury has come up with the perfect way for you to have your own at-home spa day.
The brand’s Magic Spa & Flawless Glow Box contains everything you need to preen and pamper yourself in the comfort of your own home.
Filled with ‘magical’ goodies, the box contains the brand’s iconic Goddess Cleansing Ritual duo, which is made up of a brightening Citrus Oil Radiance Cleanser alongside a Purifying Charcoal Cleanser.
The brand’s powerhouse Goddess Skin Clay Mask is included to visibly smooth skin and tighten the appearance of pores, while hydrating skin for a soft and supple finish.
To moisturise skin afterwards the box also includes Charlotte’s Magic Cream, which uses eight supercharged ingredients to improve the appearance of dull skin and leave the complexion dewy and glowing.
And to leave you with that fresh just-out-the-spa look, the box contains the brand’s Wonderglow Face Primer and the Beauty Light Wand highlighter.
And to make it even easier for fans to get the at-home spa experience, the brand has reduced the set by 30 per cent, so instead of the usual £214, it is now available for only £149.80.
Pop a bottle of bubbles and you’ll have the ultimate at-home spa experience!
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home—so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a Rioja- and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she stalked the royals via breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a good slathering of SPF and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines. Being a product specialist on a brand for bold women (and living the single life) means that Aleesha also knows a thing or two about the must-buy sex toys, so she relishes in unleashing her inner Carrie Bradshaw on our sex & relationships pages.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group.
