Keen to take the College of Natural Beauty up on its offer to review its vegan Deluxe Manicure and Pedicare, Amanda Rootsey shares her thoughts on the experience.

I recently had the absolute pleasure of enjoying a spa date at the College of Natural Beauty’s clinic.

The professional clinic is staffed by senior College students and I have to say I was extremely impressed. The clinic is just like any other salon – you walk in, are greeted at the front desk with a warm smile, sit down on a comfy couch to fill in a form and are then escorted by your therapist in to the treatment room.

It is a large room with individual treatment areas which are curtained off. I felt like it was very private and it’s nice to know that the supervising teachers are in the same area.

All the students I encountered were impeccably presented and the student therapists that treated me were caring, thoughtful, confident and knew what they were doing.

They gave me a deluxe manicure and pedicare with all vegan products from Spa Rituals (which I love!).

It was a beautiful experience and, even though it’s a couple of hours drive away for me, I’m sure I’ll be back there one day soon!

I’ve got my eye on the one hour hot stone full body massage.
