I recently decided to upgrade my hair removal method, after years of shaving and having to keep on top of it every couple of days, I decided to look into body sugaring, waxing and also laser hair removal. But I remember from my limited past experience of waxing that it can be painful and a little embarrassing. However I am braver now and I want to feel fabulous and make life a bit easier. My enquiries led me to decide on the body sugaring / sugar wax hair removal method.
I had a chat with Lucie who runs her own salon from her home in Maidenhead - L&A Evolution to understand more about body sugaring. This method is based on an ancient technique that also nourishes the skin and leaves it feeling soft and smooth, like a natural exfoliation. It is less painful than waxing and is therefore particularly suitable for more sensitive areas.
Are you looking for an anti ageing facial? You may remember my previous blog posts where I told you about three different anti ageing facials I had tried at Sunrise Health & Beauty Salon in Marlow. I am back to update you on the results and tell you a bit more about how I got on and what I thought.
After trying the COMCIT and having the lovely relaxing Japanese Cosmo Facelift Facial I then had a full course of the new facials from Endospheres Therapy using their EVA technology.
I have been very lucky to be working with Sunrise Health & Beauty Salon in Marlow recently to bring to my blog some fantastic reviews of the latest technology in anti ageing treatments and facials. I'm doing the research and trying them out so you can read my reviews and find out what would be best for you before you invest your time and money. Or add a treatment to your gift wish list this Christmas!
First of all I tried the COMCIT treatment by Crystal Clear and blogged about it on this post. I had four treatments in total and I could see an improvement in some of my lines and small acne scars, However, COMCIT can feel quite harsh during the treatment and although you get a relaxing mask at the end, it does feel a bit uncomfortable so I was keen to find out what else is available.
Following on from my first COMCIT anti-ageing facial at Sunrise Health & Beauty, Dawn encouraged me to book in for an eyebrow shape and tint - or a better description - an instant facelift! I have had my eyebrows threaded and tinted and I have had a shape and tint in the past, but I do not get in done often enough. And really as women in our 40's and 50's we should be having this simple beauty treatment done monthly.
It makes such a difference! I was already feeling pretty refreshed and glowing from my first two facials so adding an eyebrow shape and tint really has lifted my face and defined my eyes.
