A few weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of enjoying a girly spa date at the College of Natural Beauty clinic. The professional clinic is staffed by senior students at the College and I have to say that 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.

The treatment room is a large room with individual treatment areas that are curtained off. I felt like it was very private but it’s nice to know that the supervising teachers are in the same area – just in case. All of the students that 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 pedicure 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 1 hour hot stone full body massage (just $45!). The College of Natural Beauty is in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. The clinic is open on Fridays and it’s essential to book. Check out the treatment menu and the heavily discounted prices here.

If you are interested in studying at the College of Natural Beauty, they actually have an open day on Sunday 13 January.
