Julie's Diary Blog
Week 8 & 9
Hey again everyone! 👋👋👋
Hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and New Years 🎅🌌
I had a really lovely one myself spent with family 💗
As a florist, work was super busy and I had loads of fun arranging gorgeous bouquets and arrangements for our lovely customers💐 but I was lucky enough to pop into Mint to get my Pre-Christmas prep sorted... yay!! 😄😄
My first appointment was with Sheila for my on going laser hair removal treatment on my underarms. Mint use the Candela Gentle Max Pro which is the most up to date machine used in the country.
My hair isn't very dark on my under arms but even after my first treatment a few weeks back, I have definitely noticed a difference already on the amount that has grown back. It's much much lighter!
When Sheila carried out this treatment, it was super quick and easy. She marked out my treatment area and then began using the laser which felt like little mini bursts of warmth that were a little tingly but they were followed each time by a cooling puff of air so that was really soothing 💨💨😊😊
She finished with some cooling gel on the area, gave me my aftercare advice and then I was done!! 👍
It's important to get the timing right between treatments as there are different phases of hair growth so sessions are done normally every 4weeks or so in order to be most beneficial.
If you have any queeries on any areas of concern for you, feel free to contact Mint and ask for Sheila. She is so lovely and so passionate in what she does that you will be in the best hands!! 💗💗
My next appointment was with the fab Maighread for gelish removal and New colour application. I went for a fab glittery red of course, given the festive week that was in it! 🎅
Then I popped downstairs with the lovely Nadine for a brow thread and tint. It makes such a difference when I get my brows done as they are naturally very fair and when the are shaped and tinted they really frame my face. Nadine done a fab job on them. I was so happy!! 😊
Next it was on to the New LVL LASH LIFT by Nouveau Lashes with Nadine also. I wasn't sure what this would be like or what kind of difference it would make to my lashes but all I could literally say afterwards was "WOW".... like honestly.... WOW!!!!! 😄
This treatment is making headlines across the beauty industry!
It works by adding length, volume and lift to your own natural lashes without the use of extensions. it's honestly like magic 💖
Nadine was so precise during the treatment, ensuring every lash was done perfectly 👌
When we were finished my lashes were lovely and dark, the looked so much longer and my eyes looked bigger and brighter! ✅✅✅
Bubye eyelash curlers!! lol
As with most treatments like this, a patch test is needed prior.
Take a look for yourselves on Mints Facebook or Instagram to see some before and after pics of the LVL LASH LIFT and if you have a any queries, give the girls a call.
Trust me, you won't be disappointed 😊
I can't stop fluttering mine lol!!
After all this amazingness, I topped it off by trying out Neom's "Science of scent" therapy range in Mint with the salons manager Sarah 😊
It was great fun smelling all the amazing scents and seeing which one I was drawn to the most. I picked "tranquillity" from the scent to sleep range. They say that whatever one you are most drawn to is the one you need most at the time so I must be lacking rest with being so busy in work lol 😄
Sarah sent me home with a beautiful hand balm from the range which I've been using every night before bed since! I warm a little amount of it in my hands and massage it in, then I cup my hands around my nose and mouth and take a deep breath in through my nose for 7 seconds and out through my mouth slowly for 11 seconds, taking in all the wonderful natural essential oils like lavender, sweet basil and Jasmine.... it's just amazing 💖💖💖
I can honestly say, I'm sleeping like a baby since. It has such a relaxing effect on the mind and body 😊
There's loads of amazing products to choose from in the Neom Organics range. Pop into Mint and treat yourself xxx
Hope you enjoyed my little insight...
Bye for now 👋👋👋
