Relax & Revive with Chloe

Relax & Revive with Chloe

Mobile beauty therapist Chloe Wellington has recently launched her new brand Relax & Revive to Nottingham, offering a range of treatments including massage, facials, waxing, tinting and spray tans to name a few and I recently had the luxury of one of Chloe’s massages and facials  in the comfort of my own home.

Bringing with her, her own couch and products Chloe is ESPA trained and also has training with Laura Mercier in makeup, so really is qualified to offer you the full works should you require a party package for a special occasion or simply a restorative experience of relaxation and revival.

Chloe’s persona is one of complete positivity and calmness, with a wonderful aura surrounding her it is impossible to be around her and feel down heartened, as her own personal aim is to ensure every person she encounters feels uplifted and happy.


One of the current packages on offer combines a 30 minute facial with a 30 minute back massage, finishing with a 30 minute file and polish on the toes – amazing!

My facial included a cleanse, exfoliation, toner, eye cream, facial massage (my favourite part), a mask was then applied and left on for 10 minutes, where in the meantime I was delighted to receive a hand and arm massage (a scalp massage can also replace this if desired).  After the mask has worked its magic, heated mitts are used to remove the products from the skin,  finishing with a face moisturising cream suitable to your skin type.

Chloe also likes to complete her facials with a nourishing lip balm.

Another major plus point is that most of the products used are 98-99% plant marine extract based- something that is personally important to me in supporting ‘no nasties’ brands.

For the back massage, grape seed oil was used (almond oil is also another option) with the mission to deeply nourish my skin and the technique focused on areas of tension, as well as offering a relaxing experience all round.

Finally my toe nails were professionally shaped and bought to life with the colour of my choice which this time round was a nice seasonal plum polish.

This package is designed to relax the inner you, leaving you feel re-generated and I certainly felt that, melting into the couch, during the whole hour and a half treatment.

I would most certainly recommend Chloe and have already booked in for my next relax and revive experience!

Relax & Revive treatments can take place in your own home or in Chloe’s treatment room at home where she is based in Bingham, Nottingham.

For more information or to book call or text Chloe: 07557 686 010 or find her on Facebook under Relax and Revive.
