Urban Retreat at Home therapist
With top tips and a when-to-get-what calendar countdown, looking stunning this Christmas will be a doddle.
Thursday 12th December
It's the work Christmas do (Party season is now well & truly here!)
If you are not quite sure how to get into the spirit of things or just want to enjoy a little pamper session with loved ones, why not book one of the fabulous Urban Retreat At Home girls to come and deliver – right into the comfort of your own home that is – one of their Xmas Treatments.
The Express Christmas party (3 hours)
Perfect for upto 6 people, the booking includes an express massage & express manicure for each guest and we bring along some mulled wine & minced pies to get you all in the Christmas mood! The host of the party receives a fabulous goody bag too – for all her hard work!
Saturday 14th December
Glam Glow Bright Eye Mud Treatment is the must DIY at home treatment for pre-party prepping! Whether it’s meeting up with friends over the weekend or your eyes just need some added sparkle, this mask ensures camera-ready in less then 15minutes.
Tap on over the eye contours, leave on for just 3 minutes and wipe away.
Wednesday 18th December
Christmas holidays not quite coming quick enough? Beat the winter blues and mid-week exhaustion of after-work parties & Christmas shopping with utter indulgence.
The luxurious Gazelli White Oil Experience package is the answer. (2 hours 30mins). This ultimate pampering ritual provides full mind & body relaxation & rejuvenation.
The body treatment includes an exfoliating body brush, followed by a nourishing wrap in our volcanic mud and a relaxing full body massage to finish – with the body bit that is!
A luxurious hour long Gazelli white oil facial tailored to your skins needs follows, altogether leaving you healthy, glowing & radiant from head to toe.
And there’s no chance of the Christmas sparkle fading with Gazelli’s home care range either!
I am in love with their
Hydra Radiance Face Mist; this is a luxurious veil of hydration that lifts the complexion with an instant boost of radiance. A must for handbags at all times – it can even be applied over makeup!

Friday 20th December
With just 5 days to go it’s time to prep for the party with The essentials.
Get Sienna X spray tanned in your own home by one of our fab URAH girls.
No need to venture outside in the cold & rain worrying about what you look like or attempting to DIY it amidst the stress of finalising Xmas dinner!
Simply keep your body hydrated and moisturise regularly to maintain the golden glow; after around 3-4 days I would give the skin a gentle exfoliation & then apply the
Gradual Glowing self-tan Sienna X to keep the colour going all the way to the new year.
I also recommend an Artistic colour Gloss everlasting manicure & pedicure. The 2 week mani & pedi will see you through to Christmas & new year with the perfectly preened nails! Or if it’s experimenting with the latest nail trends you prefer, I am loving on-trend monochrome Black & white nails this season!
Leighton Denny have a fabulous exclusive offer on the perfect
stocking filler to get the nail artist out in you.
Friday 24th December
It's Christmas Eve and you want your luscious locks looking fabulous for Christmas Day. I highly recommend a
Moroccan oil intense hydrating mask enriched with Argan oil to leave your hair fully hydrated & silky smooth. (I’d probably top it up with one of
Urban Retreat in Harrods’ famous Big
blow drys for added wow factor on Christmas day)
Saturday 25th December
Get the turkey in the oven and the wine served because
Christmas Day has finally arrived so enjoy it!
Merry Christmas all! x
