Question of the Week: If you could splurge on one luxury beauty treatment (think facial, salon visit, massage etc.), what would it be?

Answer: Right now? A massage. Especially if it focused on my legs, feet, and calf muscles.  They’re restless as hell when I’m trying to fall asleep and then I wake up with cramps!  I’m not hugely keen on facials, they’re ok… but I just don’t feel any long term benefits like I do with a bloody good massage.
