John Lewis Spa Review, Spas In Birmingham


If I told you the other week I’d been for a facial and gel manicure in a John Lewis spa would you be surprised? When I found out John Lewis had spas I was! Turns out they do and &Beauty at the new Grand Central John Lewis in Birmingham is a real gem. With a set of treatment rooms, hair stations, mani/pedi booths, relaxation rooms and a whole set of exclusive products &Beauty is set to rival the Birmingham spa scene with a broad selection of treatments and even half spa days on offer.

I was invited down to &Beauty for a Mini Facial* and a Gel Manicure* just in time for my holiday to Mexico – what better way to prep for a week of relaxation than two hours of pampering and relaxation! When I arrived I was introduced to my therapist Alexandra and lead through to a treatment room for my mini facial. The spa is brand new and very contemporary, I really liked the look of it and felt right at home. With exclusive Pai produts I settled down on the bed ready to have my skin cleansed, buffed and massaged in a very relaxing mini treatment. With this only being my second facial (I’m usually a massage or nails kind of girl) I’ve only got one other to compare to and I’m happy to say this was great. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I was incredibly relaxed  – the facial massage really helped with my cold too.

I ended up buying the Pai Brightening Exfoliator because the results were amazing and it felt lovely on my skin. I was glowing and didn’t mind walking out with my naked face for all to see while we worked on my nails!

OPI nail products

OPI is the name of the game at &Beauty and they had a lovely selection of colours. My therapist filed, buffed, dehydrated and then cured my nails to perfection with a pool appropriate shade! I’m really pleased with the finish – I have gels a lot on my nails and I’m happy to report they did a fantastic job. They also offer pedicures and hair treatments/cuts/blow dries too along with a long list of other pamper treats – you can really go to town.

I loved my pamper session at the John Lewis spa &Beauty and I’ll certainly be back – who knew such a little spa haven existed in amongst the handbags at the back of the store! Definitely check this one out when you’re next looking for a bit of me time.
