Shahnaz Loves Beauty

An oasis of heaven right in the middle of the Waterfront I absolutely love the new Life Day Spa. The team kindly invited me to come experience the spa and spoilt me with treatments, skincare goodies and even fed me. After shooting all day it really was a welcome treat. On arrival you are greeted with friendly smiling faces and already as soon as you step through those doors you already feel relaxed. Love going to the spa its the best way to get away from daily stresses of life and take a breath.

If you know the spa at Crystal Towers then there are some similarities like the floation room and the rasul chamber where you literally go and totally relax. Everything is beautifully designed and feels really luxurious. What I love is that the treatment prices aren’t crazy and really quite affordable. Plus there are a whole load of specials on at the moment. A great Christmas treat for a loved one.

The Life Day Spa has a whole dedicated nail bar area for manicures and pedicures. The manicure area has comfy chairs that face the outside so you can see the world rushing by while you totally relax. They don’t have a dedicated restaurant but if you do book one of their packages you will be fed with yummy food from Tashas at the indoor chill out area. After your treatment you can totally chill out at the cascade pool or take a steam so your experience doesn’t have to end if you don’t want it to.

I was treated to an express manicure, back and neck massage plus a facial by the lovely Nikita. Amazing service and amazing treatments and I got spoilt with some of the skincare goodies that they stock at the spa. I loved my treatments so much that I have been back since to experience my first ever non invasive skin peel.


Nikita managed to persuade me to try a peel as I suffer from pigmentation and some scarring on my skin. I have always been so sceptical about peels as am terrified I would walk out with crazy red skin and not be able to go in the sun. With my job I am on location a lot which is outside in the crazy heat. Much to my surprise the Otophi Skin Rejuventation peel was actually amazing. The peel itself is a quick process where I felt some tingling in certain areas of my face.

The rest of the treatment was like having a facial which was amazing and so relaxing. The peel for face only is R510 and if you include the decollage its R760. Niquita kindly gave me a couple of samples of  the Otophi Retinol  that I apply every night on clean skin. I already can see the difference after one peel where my sun spots have reduced on my cheeks. Already booked my next peel so by next year my skin will see a big transformation.

If you love a spa this is a definite must do if you are based in the city or don’t mind to travel for the experience. Great service and really beautiful products from La Prarie, Nimue, Barbor and Otophi.
