Remaining true to our roots, we have chosen to work with the Eve Taylor Organic Skincare Line. Eve Taylor London is the natural choice for beautiful skin, harnessing the power of aromatherapy and botanical extracts for over 50+ years. Founded by pioneering aromatherapist Eve Taylor, O.B.E., she has thoroughly researched their formulations. They have never tested any of their products on animals, they only test on humans. The Eve Taylor product line is formulated to balance with the correct pH of the skin. All of their products are paraben free. No ingredients such as artificial colours or fragrances or other known irritants that can sensitize the skin, including alcohols, formaldehyde, petrochemicals or phthalates along with other ingredients that can be comedogenic (pore-clogging) are used.
Their products contain active ingredients that are beyond cosmetic, working deeper than the upper layer of the skin giving highly effective results. Eve Taylor uses tamper-evident packaging as much as possible, alongside contamination free packaging. All packaging can be recycled after use. The products are manufactured in small batches so that the active ingredients can be included to ensure purity and freshness in every batch, without the products sitting in the warehouse for months before they are sold.
What are the benefits of a regular facial?
Facials are an important way to support and enhance the body with its natural skin maintenance and rejuvenation cycle, and keeps skin hydrated and regenerated. The benefits are:
increased blood circulation under the skin
decreased waste under the skin that can cause puffiness and fluid accumulation
reduced fine lines. relieves dehydrated skin, and promotes collagen production which reduces premature aging, wrinkles and sagging
cleanses pores on a deeper level as extractions help to keep the skin clear and stop acne formation
supports an even skin tone and lightens dark spots
reduces and slows down the effects of aging allowing the skin the feel healthier, smoother and look for radiant
you get to relax and enjoy a great stress release and leave with great skin - what more could one ask?
We wax with Nufree
Nufree is the gold standard in hair removal. It was developed over 25 years ago to help plastic surgeons remove hair from a patient before surgery. Here are just a few reasons why Nufree is the most effective hair removal treatment in the world:
Nufree is NOT A WAX and never sticks to the skin
Nufree is self-preserving antibacterial/antimicrobial so it is safe, clean and germ-free
Nufree is completely botanical and safe for the entire body
Nufree doesn't dry and can be erased at any time
How long do I have to let my hair grow?
Don't even think about booking an appointment unless you've gone one to two weeks without shaving or waxing and have at least 1/4" of hair. Patience is a virtue - waxing will be painful and not as effective if you haven't waited long enough!
How do I prepare for my waxing service?
With the exception of the face, it is recommended that you exfoliate the area several days prior to your appointment. Thoroughly clean the area keeping the skin moist but not greasy from heavy lotions or oils.
Does waxing hurt?
It hurts more the first time than any other time because you're pulling out 100% of the hair, your nerves are on edge, and you don't know what to expect. You will experience a quick, temporary sting that stops hurting right away. By far the worst part for most people is the anticipation and not the actual removal. Follow all the tips given and you will be fine. You second time will be so much EASIER!
Can medication affect waxing?
Yes! You CANNOT be waxed if you are taking any antibiotics such as Accutane, Differin or Retin A. Additionally, any medications that list "sun sensitivity" as symptoms will preclude you from being waxed. You should also avoid waxing while using glycolic acid, harsh exfoliants or any facial peels.
How often will you need waxing?
Everyone is different but 95% of clients come in every 4-5 weeks. Regular waxing sessions ensure that your hair grows back finer and thinner as the follicle has less grip on the hair.
What if I'm on my period?
You can but just know that you are more sensitive about three days before and after your period.
To ensure the best results possible, the following are recommended before each visit:
do not wear makeup
remove contact lenses
let us know if you are experiencing any eye infections or irritation as this will need to be cleared up before any treatment is performed
After your eye treatment, it is recommended to:
keep your lashes dry and free of makeup for 24 hours
avoid using any oil-based creams and lotions for the first 24 hours (natural products are always a good choice!)
do not use waterproof mascara
do not rub or irritate your eyes
