Enjoy a back-to-school beauty treat this month

Udderly Indulgent

Summer’s fading fast, which means it’s time for a bit of a pick-me-up. We hunted down the best beauty bargains around this month, so you can treat yourself without splashing out.


Udderly Indulgent

Cowshed’s first Concept Store and Spa opens tomorrow near Carnaby Street, joining the ranks of world-renowned Cowshed spas currently at Babington House and in Notting Hill. To celebrate the opening, the first 10 customers through the door will win a consultation with leading facialist Amie Jones, before being rewarded for their early morning efforts with a Cowshed Facial voucher, worth £65. The following 50 customers get a go at the Cowshed Lucky Dip, where you can win vouchers for treatments worth up to £100.

When: 15th September; doors open 10am, 31 Fouberts Place

Taking Liberties

Starting on the 18 September, Bumble and Bumble and WAM stylists will be setting up shop in Liberty’s beauty hall, offering blow dry’s and styling. Book in post-work, pre-drinks for gorgeous, going-out hair. Appointments cost £15, which is fully redeemable against £75 of Bumble and Bumble styling products or a WAM styling tool. ELLE cover star Lily Allen’s a fan of Bumble & Bumble, so you’ll be in good company.

National Spa Week

Wahanda.com has teamed up with the Spa Business Association as the official online partner for National Spa Week 2009 and they’re offering two-for-ones at spas up and down the country. Our advice? Book one of the more luxury spas to make the most of the offer. Stoke Park, Titanic, Ragdale Hall and Malvern Spa are all included. On top of that, there’ll be hundreds of other bargains, including free facials, hair cuts and pilates classes.

When: 19-27 September, but offers are available online now

Bag a make-over

Le Metier de Beaute is one of the hot, new cosmetics brands on the block and already a favourite with the ELLEuk.com team – their brow pencil made it into our a/w beauty picks. They’re offering complimentary 30 minute make-overs at their Smokey Eye Salon, a pop-up makeover counter in Anya Hindmarch stores this month. Plus, you’ll get a free goody bag at the end of your makeover (with no purchase necessary). Book in for a later appointment and flaunt your newly made-up eyes while partying the night away.

When: 24-26 September, but make sure to book your place beforehand
