Clarins Beauty Bar in John Lewis, Leeds On Friday, I decided to get the coach home from Leeds Bus Station, but had some time to kill before departure. I decided to visit the new John Lewis at Victoria Gate, which is the biggest store outside of London. When strolling around, a lady from Clarins grabbed my attention as they were giving complimentary treatments at the Clarins Beauty Bar, which is one of nine in the country. I was in need of some relaxation, so I accepted the offer straight away. The Beauty Bar is very calming, with neutral tones and vanity lights throughout, so you can fully enjoy the experience.

For a complete treatment, it costs £25 for a 40 minute session, which is actually really good because it includes a skin consultation beforehand, some amazing pamper time with Clarins’ best products and a couple of freebie samples to take away. Unfortunately, as a student, I could not pay for the whole works, but I did manage a 15 minute free facial, which was heaven. The facial left my skin feeling refreshed and revitalized, with eye gel, cleanser, toner and moisturiser all used. The beauty consultant also added some BB cream, mascara and lip balm for the finishing touch. If you decide to get a full treatment, there are so many options to choose from, depending on what takes your fancy. Whether you want hydrated skin, rejuvenated eyes or just some relaxation, there is something for you. Alternatively, turn your visit into a girls’ session, as the Leeds Beauty Bar is currently doing 2 for 1 treatments. Who knows, you may come away with these treats?! Megan x
