You will have noticed that I am slowly, very slowly, looking for more eco-friendly and sustainable options in my life, it is a gradual process and one that won't happen overnight. Decluttering my house and my wardrobe in particular has been a recent project. Buying less, shopping my wardrobe and researching sustainable brands is all part of the process. My favourite shampoo can now be refilled if I save the bottles, all baby steps. So when I was contacted by 'Wild' recently about their Kickstarter campaign I decided it was one I should look at closer - an eco-friendly and natural deodorant that actually works!? And I really like supporting the smaller brands - especially with a focus on sustainability.
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.
