Our stay at Regnum Aparthotel & Spa in Bansko, Bulgaria

A few weeks ago, I was in Bulgaria with my husband to resolve some issues with my parent’s holiday home. We spent a few days in Bansko and a couple of days in Sofia. I love travelling to Bulgaria and today I would like to tell you about our stay at the Regnum Apart hotel & Spa in Bansko.


Regnum Apart hotel & Spa is based in the popular town of Bansko at the foot of the Pirin Mountains, in southwest Bulgaria. It is only a few minutes’ walk from town’s high street on which you can find many nice restaurants, clubs and a gondola. The hotels location is perfect – no matter whether you are in Bansko for skiing, hiking or just passing by.


Regnum Apart hotel & Spa has a classic and sophisticated décor. Its guests can enjoy many common areas such as an outdoor swimming pool, spa, bar, reading room and a large lounging area. All staff members we spoke with were helpful and accommodating.


We stayed in an Executive deluxe suite which consisted of two rooms, bathroom and a balcony with stunning mountain views. We enjoyed relaxing in our spacious living room with kitchenette which was fully equipped with a kettle all plates, cutlery, mini-fridge, safe box, and oven. We didn’t cook whilst we were there, but it would be handy for anyone who fancy preparing their meals whilst away from home. Our bedroom had a stylish décor and a comfortable with king size bed and a flat-screen TV.
Our bathroom had both shower cabin and bathtub and again was finished to a high standard. A selection of complimentary toiletries was also provided.

My favourite space in the apartment was our balcony – the view was simply stunning and as we were in Bansko in June it was perfect to lounging on with a drink after hiking all day.


Overall experience:
We enjoyed our stay in Regnum Apart hotel & Spa and I would recommend it to anyone travelling to Bansko. In addition, the hotel has recently opened its own thermal SPA in a picturesque village of Banya. Regnum Banya Thermal features an outdoor swimming pool with mineral water which is complimentary to use for all hotel guests and can be easily reachable in 10min by a free hotel’s shuttle bus. The SPA has great facilities including a steam room, sauna and if you fancy you can have one of beauty treatments or a massage whilst in there.

The only let down was hotel’s buffet which we decided to try on one of the nights. All food was bland and overpriced for Bulgaria as it was around 20euros per person. It was a canteen quality food which I would not expect in a 5-star hotel.

SkinHealthSpa Facial

Ultimate Facial at the SkinHealthSpa in London Bishopsgate

Today, I would like to tell you about the ‘ultimate facial’ I had at the SkinHealthSpa in London.

I was welcomed by a friendly receptionist who asked me to fill in the customer’s information card and then invited me to sit in a lounge located on the second floor. A few minutes later my beauty therapist – Lenka picked me up from there and we went to the treatment room located on the first floor.


So let me tell you about my treatment…

From what I heard from Lenka the ‘Ultimate Facial’ was initially developed for one of SkinHealthSpa’s long-term following celeb’s who was looking for: ‘something to combat the grime of make-up, shoots, studio lights and London grime’. The client loved it so the clinic manager decided to introduce it to all clients. The facial is used to treat lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, pigmentation, skin surfacing, pores, dead and tired looking skin and can be used on all skin types.

Skin Health Spa’s Ultimate facial takes around one hour and combines 3 treatments and light massage to finish:

  • Microdermabrasion Treatment
  • Balancing Enzyme Facial Treatment
  • Transderm Treatment

My therapist started by removing my make-up and then completed the balancing enzyme treatment. Following from that, she performed the microdermabrasion treatment which removed all dead skin cells and exposed a freshly looking skin. At that point she started my Transderm treatment. It was definitely my favourite aspect of this facial as she massaged a beautifully scented serum onto my face using the Transderm equipment. Lenka explained that: ‘Transderm is an alternative to injections for all mesotherapy applications, mainly skin rejuvenation on face, neck, chest and hands and cellulite treatments.’ My treatment was finished by a light facial massage and at the end my therapist applied some serum, moisturizer and sunscreen on my face.


My skin looks fresh, relaxed and the small lines from under my eyes appear reduced. I would definitely recommend this facial to anyone as an extra treat when you want to look your best. I will definitely visit SkinHealthSpa again in August before my wedding as like all the brides I want to look my best on that special day.

The only unfavorable feedback that I could think of is that the treatment room didn’t quite look as exclusive as I expected and the lights weren’t dimmed. It felt more like being at the dentists office rather then at the elegant spa. On the other hand though I went there for a facial and I was unquestionably impressed with the result and how my skin looks like now after the treatment so I guess that’s all that matters.


Price: £145 for a single treatment or £390 for a course of 3 treatments.

SkinHealthSpa also offers a range of other treatments so check out their website for more details:

Tried and tested: Moor Spa Platinum Supreme Serum & Cream


This week I would like to tell you about the Moor Spa Skin Care. I recently tried a serum and moisturiser  from its exclusive Platinum Supreme range which is suitable for all skin types.


Every Moor Spa product contains the unique Austrian Moor essence. Created by nature over 10,000 years ago, this nutrient-rich complex is derived from a multitude of herbs, plants and flowers and is revered for its therapeutic properties by both medical clinics and spas around the world. This consists of a wide array of organic substances and minerals such as humic acid, fulvic acid, antioxidants, proteins and mineral salts that enhance the skin’s overall health.
Platinum Supreme Serum 
This 100% natural serum contains the renowned age-defying effects of Palmitoyl Tripeptide, DMAE and Alpha Lipoic Acid – all in one concentrated product. It has a lovely silky texture and is quickly absorbent. It comes in a 30ml tube and cost $45.00
Platinum Supreme Cream
This 100% natural cream combines the intensely hydrating action of hyaluronate spheres, the rejuvenating effects of sweet potato extract and the anti-oxidant properties of CoEnzyme Q10 – all in one advanced moisturizer.
How to use it:
You should follow your normal daily skincare ritual and firstly remove any make up, cleanse and tone your skin. Once your skin is fresh and clean you should apply 1 drop of the serum to your face and then once it absorbs you should massage a pea-size of the moisturiser over your face.
I’ve been using Moor Spa Platinum Supreme serum and Creme for 3 weeks now and I can clearly see the improvement. My skin looks more radiant, is soft and it looks younger.
You should definitely give Moor Spa products a go and buy them! I will definitely want to try some more products from Moor Spa!

Non-surgical face lift treatments

As some of you know I am getting married in a couple of months. As all brides do, I want to look my best and this is why I decided to look into non-surgical face lift treatments. As we grow older our facial muscles naturally start to lose tone and elasticity. Non-surgical procedures are quickly gaining in popularity as a means of improving facial appearance by restoring the three-dimensional contour of the face without the need for surgery.

I would like to share with you a feedback on 2 treatments I recently tried.

First of the treatments I tried was CACI Non-Surgical Facelift.

CACI Facelift is a non-surgical solution to combat loss of muscle tone using CACI micro current facial toning therapy.

It is a painless cosmetic treatment and is commonly referred to as “facial toning” or “the non-surgical face lift”.

During my 1 hour treatment session all 32 facial muscles were gently worked on by a trained therapist using a series of specific movements. Soft cotton tipped wands were used on my face to transmit the micro current energy to the facial muscles to restore tone and elasticity.


I booked 3 sessions. After my first treatment, my face felt tighter however it was difficult for me to see a visible result. When I finished my 3 sessions, my facial contours looked lifted but still there was no massive improvement.

My beautician mentioned that the results vary according to the individual and a course of twelve treatments is generally recommended and only then I will see a visible results.


£60 per treatment


CACI treatments are very popular nowadays so there are lots of different beauty spas offering them. I had my treatments done at The London Tanning And Beauty in Wigmore street.



The second treatment I tried was ChinUp Mask which is designed for home use and its main aim is to diminish all sagging skin from underneath the jaw.

I was seriously ‘wowed’ by this mask which promises the visible results after just one use. The 30 Minute Non-Surgical Face Lift Trial Pack reduces fat cells and restores the skin’s natural elasticity. This revolutionary set features a tape measure to monitor the progress made through frequent use. Fine lines and wrinkles are also eradicated, leaving the skin soft, supple and youthful.

  • Vitamin E – Conditions, protects and revitalises the skin.
  • Corum 9235 – Promotes the reduction of fat cells in the chin area.
  • Q10 Coenzyme – Diminishes wrinkles, fine lines and sallowness.
  • Skintronics – Lifts and firms the chin by converting fat cells into stabilised fibrous tissue.

Set Contains:

  • Chin Masks x 2 – Targets fat cells and firms the chin area.
  • Chin Band x 1 – Aids and secures the effects of the chin mask.
  • Tape Measure x 1 – Take measurements of the chin area and witness noticeable results.


My chin was lifted and I am seriously impressed by the results I achieved in 30 minutes. I would definitely recommend it.

Price: £29.99 for Firming & Contouring Trial Pack

Bel Âge Anti-Ageing Health & Beauty Show


The Bel Âge Anti-Ageing Health & Beauty Show at Olympia in London run over 2 days from Saturday 14th until Sunday 15th of May 2016. I attended it on Saturday 14.05.2016.


The Bel Âge Anti-Ageing Health & Beauty show took place in London Olympia exhibition centre located in West Kensington in London. The venue was firstly opened in 1886 and serves as a home for international trade shows, conferences and consumer events. It is easily accessible-I went there using London Underground train from West Kensington and walked for around 3 min to get to the venue. During the weekend trains run every 15 to 20minutes which is convenient. Another option was to take one of the Overground trains traveling directly to Kensington Olympia.

My day at the Bel Âge Anti-Ageing Health & Beauty Show:

I arrived at London Olympia around 11:20. I love trying new products and experiment with treatments so I was looking forward to attending this event for a while.

My facial with the Organic Pharmacy was booked for 12:00 so I wanted to pick up my ticket as soon as possible and make my way to the exhibition area. Exhibitors included companies covering skincare, hair-care, nail care, advanced beauty treatments and nutrition. There were also a few clothing brands showcasing their new designs, a juice bar to restore the energy levels and some fashion brands exhibiting their newest collections.

Facial with the Organic Pharmacy:

After my quick walk around the hall, I went to check in for my facial. The receptionist in the VIP beauty area-Patrick was extremely friendly and after a quick chat he asked me to follow his colleague into one of many treatment rooms. I sat down while my therapist explained the treatment to me. My 30 minutes facial was truly relaxing. It started with some deep cleansing and was followed by a facial massage. In the interim my beauty therapist applied a mask to brighten and lift my skin. Subsequently, my mini-treatment continued with more relaxing massage using the Organic Pharmacy products.

After a relaxing 30min at the hands of the Organic Pharmacy beautician, I walked with her to the Organic Pharmacy stand where Paul, a make-up artist working exclusively for the Organic Pharmacy applied a bit of foundation on my skin. He was very professional and I would love to try more Organic Pharmacy products in the near future as my make-up looked fresh and radiant.

Presentations & Live-demos:

Following on from my great experience with the Organic Pharmacy’s team, I decided to make the most of my day by going to see some remarkable demonstrations of the latest cutting edge developments. Throughout the day all attendees were able to participate in live-demos. I was present at a couple of them. I was fascinating to watch ‘The Cinderella Lift Live on stage’ presented by doctor Aamer Khan from Harley Street Clinic. The treatment is superb for anyone who wishes to achieve a face-lift effect by using this non-surgical alternative. I was amazed by the results achieved during the live demonstration by Dr Khan. The procedure gave some instant results by using a combination of Botox, dermal fillers and PDO threads. The model’s facial contour improved drastically in less than 60 minutes. I am against cosmetic surgery so it was an incredible showpiece of what results you could achieve with less invasive treatments.


Brands exhibiting during the day:

There were lots of brands that I use on a regular basis such as: Elemis, Benefit, Lancôme and Proto-col. Other beauty and skincare brands that I visited included: Aria Beauty, Bionix, Premier selling products from the Dead Sea, Jouve, Urban Veda, Zuzka and Clarena.

There were lots of beauty clinics and doctors providing a valuable advice i.e. Dr David Jack, Dr Jane Leonard, TLC Group, Linia Skin Clinics and Prof. George Nadh. Some of them were even performing some live-demonstrations. They all provided some useful suggestions when I approached them to check what new treatments they could recommend.

In addition, there were a few brands offering their pampering day experiences and photo-shoots. I am afraid that I need to say that the sales reps from ‘The Face London’ and ‘Vanity’ studios were extremely pushy and didn’t take ‘no’ as an answer…  I used to work in fashion and beauty so I didn’t like their approach-giving a quick introduction to your company and services you offer is fine but if you see that your client is not interested you should just leave it… On the other hand, advisors from Donna Bella Ltd, were friendly and welcoming. They were on hand to demonstrate their collection of beauty and hair care products and willing to show how their straighteners and curlers are different from my GHDs.

Moving on, all visitors to the show were able to participate in 30min yoga classes on the fitness stage with the ‘Body and Brain’ who also run a ‘Longevity Walking’ presentation during the day. I also watched therapists from Qi Wellness performing some of their signature energy treatments.

Competitions and special offers:

There were lots of competitions and special offers running during the day. From the moment I entered the venue, I was certain that I wanted to take advantage of some great offers that were available to all participants. Most of the exhibitors had exclusive offers and I ended up spending tons of money but as I always say: you only have one skin so make sure that you look after it! 😉 The offers that I took advantage during the show were:

  • REVIDOX 2 months’ supply (60 tablets) for the price of 1. I bought this supplement to determine if it really works and discover the full beneficial results from REVIDOX+ over the recommended time period. It is a new ‘beauty from within’ supplement backed by clinical studies to fight the signs of ageing on a cellular level. I will aim to provide you with some more information soon.
  • CLARENA Polska offered some discounted prices on their skincare. I spoke with one of their consultants-Ms Ania and bought some Oxygen Infusion Mask as well as a face roller system and hyaluronic roller cocktail serum. I cannot wait to try these products.
  • AURORA light therapy face mask from the Wellness Tree Group was available for £349 instead of RRP of £399. Light therapy is medically recognised and clinically proven to treat a wide range of skin imperfections and signs of ageing. The Aurora mask uses a number of different lights to treat a range of conditions. As I am getting married in a few months’ time, I thought that it will be a great investment as I would love to improve my skin condition before my big day. I hope that the results will be as good as promised.
  • TLC Group offered a discounted price (£59) on their Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Facial. This treatment was great for me as it is a non-surgical alternative that provides tightening and reduces the early signs of ageing and loss of firmness.

Ticket prices:

There were a few options of tickets to choose from:

  • Standard day pass  (£18)
  • Standard weekend pass (£29)
  • VIP day package (£95). The VIP day package included: the official show guide, fast-track entry, a luxurious mini treatment, a glass of bubbly, access to the VIP Lounge and a fabulous goody bag full of beauty products to enjoy at home.

Overall experience:

The Bel Âge Anti-Ageing Show was a fantastic day full of discovering what’s new in skincare and beauty industries, getting some practical advice from the experts and pampering. The event was perfect for anyone who is concerned with ageing and wants (like me) to stop (or at least delay) the inevitable! There was a great variety of exhibitors involved, ranging from one of my favorite British skincare brands – Elemis to less established brands such as Zuzka. It was a great opportunity for beauty and skincare lovers to talk to the representatives from both famous and less prominent brands. I was immensely glad to see a stand from Polish brand ‘Clarena’ which I was looking forward to trying for a long time!

I am extremely glad to have participated in this event and I will definitely visit again next year! Thank you for an incredible day!
