Your online saving grace, Return to Glory is an innovative new idea that brings the beauty salon to your home and is a must for your Google toolbar. Simply search the site by post code (oh yes theyre nationwide!), treatment or therapist and you can book your home treatment at a time which suits you, whether thats first thing in the morning, after work or at the weekends (and no theyre not closed on Sundays). All the therapists are freelance so they are happy to work outside normal working hours and the site has been sampled with over 4000 test clients, so only the very best therapists have made it to the final directory list. Once you have booked online and made your payment (no cash is exchanged directly with the therapist and there is a strict no-tipping policy, which avoids any awkward moments) all you have to do is stick the kettle on and wait for the therapist to arrive at your home. Easy!
Return to Glory launches tomorrow and in case youre still not sold weve road tested their service for you to see if it really is as amazing as it sounds. Heres our testers verdict

I worried slightly that a home massage may not be too relaxing as I could easily be distracted if I spotted dust around the skirting boards, but five minutes into my treatment I was in heaven and had completely forgotten where I was. I made sure I had the house to myself (thank god for football season) and my therapist even brought her own mini I pod station to set the scene with relaxing music. The massage was the best Ive had and the pedicure great especially as I didnt have to worry about getting home on a rainy day in flip flops. Im officially hooked.
