The Mount Somerset Hotel & Spa – Taunton
It seems to be that on the 1st of every month I go to a spa. Well this has happened twice, May 1st Bath Spa and on June 1st Alice, my mum and I went to The Mount Somerset Spa in Taunton. This spa is a lot different to Bath Spa as it is smaller and quieter. There was not anybody else there so we had the whole jacuzzi, steam room and sauna to ourselves. The showers were the coolest part as you can choose between storms in different countries and it portrays them by flashing different coloured lights and the pressure of water coming out. It was also a very sunny day on Thursday, so mum and I sunbathed for an hour and ended up getting quite sun burnt on my face before going in for my treatment.
In my treatment I had a back, neck and arm massage which was amazing as she got rid of all my notch and made me feel extremely refreshed. I also had a facial where she showed me what products I should be using and what I shouldn’t be using. She told me my skin was very sensitive and that I had a couple of dry patches above and below my eyes. At the end of the session she gave me a copy of the names of all the products they use at this spa and ticked the ones she used on me. 24 hour Replenishing Eye Moisturiser was the key product as she thinks it will really help my skin if I start using an eye dehydrator from a young age. Apparently using a normal moisturiser on your eyes is not good for re – hydrating as the thickness of the cream clogs up your pours.
Although I had an amazing day at the spa I had to rush back for work and ended up being an hour late. The restaurant was extremely busy and when my colleague and I didn’t think it could get any worse, we had a power cut. By 9:00PM half the restaurant was un – able to be fed so got free drinks all night. Finally at 10:30PM the power came on so we could carefully shut down the restaurant. At the time of this we were all extremely stressed but when they came on even the customers found it hilarious.
