Kamigata Express and Pamper

Kamigata Cardiff

Wow last week I was really made to feel pampered, and it came just at the right time with all the house moving stress in my life. I was lucky enough to try out the new Kamigata Express Service and for those who don't know who or what Kamigata is, it's a swish newish hair, beauty and spa hotspot right in the centre of Cardiff, found in St Davids 2.

So what is the express service? It's amazing for one thing, but to be exact it's perfect for those who are short for time but want to be made up before going out or to an event or if you just feel like treating yourself and it includes a lovely Aveda mini-facial, manicure and a blow-dry from one of their professional stylists.

So here is how my personal experience went, first of all on arrival the staff were very friendly, welcoming and made sure I had everything I needed. I had a few minutes to browse all the products in the reception area and then was taken over to the little spa bar and sat in a very cool vintage barber chair where I was spoilt with a very refreshing Aveda Facial and hand massage by my very informative and professional beautician.

It felt so good to just relax for five minutes without a care in the world and it's great that they use and stock natural based products such as Aveda. After my mini-facial I was treated to a manicure. They had so many colour choices it was really hard to choose but I went with a new Autumn/Christmas inspired shade which was a sort of pinky plum sparkly number and put me right into the festive mood.

After I had my nails done I was once again whisked away to have my hair washed in there amazing massage chairs, again it was so relaxing that I thought I was going to fall asleep! While having my hair washed I also had a mini hair conditioning treatment which has left my hair feeling really soft and smooth. When it come to the blow-dry the stylist did exactly what I asked by creating something with just a little bit of bounce so it didn't look too straight.

I really enjoyed the overall experience and every step of they way they made you feel comfortable, offered refreshments and I loved the head and hand massages. It was the perfect way to de-stress and put a bit of lift into your daily life and I felt really pampered. Not only is the express service perfect for nights out and christmas parties but would also make a great gift for someone. Plus if you have time take a look at the products they sell as John picked me up some Aveda Shampure Shampoo and Conditioner for my birthday in September and it's has an amazing smell, is natural and leaves my hair feeling shinny.
