YOUR GUIDE TO FASHION HEALTH & BEAUTY Beauty blog Utopia Spa Melville Hall Hotel, Sandown TEL: 01983 405848 92 Island Life’s Laura Boynton reports on the second of her series of visits to Utopia Spa, Melville Hall Hotel, Sandown. Laura said: “As we say goodbye to the summer and enter the autumn, sunshine and warmth are hard to find. As we approach the party season, looking fabulous is just as important as ever to a girl and a lack of favour from the elements is no excuse. “So in order to have that feel-good factor, Utopia Spa can offer their ‘Party Prep Spa Day’ for only £49. This involves a Saint Tropez Spray Tan and an express manicure or pedicure. The spray tan gives you that golden ‘sun kissed’ glow, to give the perfect backdrop for that gorgeous dress. “As part of my package, prior to undergoing my spray tan, I chose to have an express manicure, although the alternative is to choose a pedicure if it suits your needs better, if only to show off those new shoes! “Everyone has heard spray nightmares, but the process was quick and simple and the outcome has really pleased me. And with the express manicure as well, I felt ready to take on the town.”
