Recently I have been hearing a lot about Argan Oil and Moroccan Oil, and I was wondering what all the hype was about.     “Argan oil is multipurpose cosmetic product.

A few months ago I went to the Dr Brandt Launch at Just Skin Aesthetics Clinic. Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow swear by Dr Brandt’s Lineless skincare range while Kelly Ripa, Emma Rossum and Lenny Kravitz are fans of his other skincare solutions.   Even though I was adamant that I was not going to buy anything (as if!), I was pretty impressed with a couple of the products, and they had a Special Offer which was really good value for money, so I hauled out my credit card and walked away with some products and a lovely Free Gift for good measure. I was going away that weekend, so I didn’t get a chance to test the products until a week later, and I have been meaning to tell you about one product in particular, the Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Face Cream.    What it is: A poweful at-home alternative to aRead More

While skin care and beauty treatments are at the forefront of both, the biggest difference between a Beauty Salon and an Aesthetics Clinic is the treatments that you can expect to receive there.   A Beauty Salon’s focus is more about pampering and include your classic beauty and grooming treatments (facials, massages, mani/pedi, waxing and other signature treatments), while anyone working in aesthetics is more concerned and trained in anti-aging. Even though they will probably still take care of your waxing and pedi needs, their main focus is on turning back the clock with treatments like facial and chemical peels, photo rejuvenation, dermal fillers and Botox.   This does not mean however, that a clinic needs to feel like a doctor’s office. JUST SKIN AESTHETIC CLINIC is as elegant and lovely as its owner Carol Maccallum who has been in the skin care industry for over 25 years with previousRead More
