Celebrate Galentine's Day with the NEW Viva La Juicy Le Bubbly

Confession: it's been almost a year since our last spa visit. We have untamed eyebrows, unwaxed legs and a DIY pedicure. But as salons remain closed one of our favourite brands has prepared the ultimate beauty night in to brighten winter evenings with a package comprising masks, scrubs, and treats for hands and feet, worth almost £40, though the set retails for £30.
