“An oasis of serenity nestled on a lush private island at the heart of One&Only Cape Town, lies an exclusive, unparalleled Spa Retreat. Surrounded by water and lush vegetation, One&Only Spa offers tailored holistic experiences, ranging from pure relaxation to unique and signature wellness journeys. Defining personal service and quiet indulgence, the Spa embraces local African influences and combines this with contemporary design.”   When I was asked to review the One & Only Spa at the Waterfront, I was truly excited as this exclusive retreat has been on my bucket list for some time now. I can never find enough time to review every spa and product that I come across, but I definitely wasn’t going to miss out on experiencing the ‘Winter African Escape’ at the One & Only Spa.     I would strongly recommend that you set aside some additional time to enjoy the facilities, as thereRead More

Essence Gel Nail Polish Review

essence gel

Most of us have tried one of the many in salon gel manicure’s (Bio-Sculpture, Shellac, Gelish). As much as I love that a gel mani does not chip and can last up to 3 weeks, the one little niggle I have is that you can’t really remove the gel yourself and have to go back to the salon to have it removed properly. And, yes, I’m guilty of removing it myself (trying to copy the nail technician with foils on my nails). Somehow I don’t seem to do as good a job.   I’d heard a beauty editor mention the latest Essence gel polish and was VERY keen to try it.   It’s not like the salon gel manicure’s, but the next generation of nail polish that you apply like our normal polish at home (no lamp needed), but has an incredibly long-lasting gel like effect.   I received these twoRead More

Esse Range Of Cleansers

range

If you love Esse then you’ll love their range of cleansers.   Most people associate probiotics (good microbes) with maintaining a healthy gut, but new research has shown that microbes are also essential for perfect skin.   There are ten microbes for every human cell in your body and this finding has turned the conventional view of skin on it’s head. Skin is a complex ecosystem – an intricate, intermingled mix of human and microbial cells that work together to optimise barrier function and keep moisture in.   Esse has used this new revelation to formulate products that maintain a balance of microbes to slow the ageing process. To do this, Esse uses prebiotics to selectively feed good microbes and they’ve used probiotic microbes in some products to deliver specific results.

Threading – The New Non-Surgical Face Lift

Pulling the skin up the thread

I was pretty excited to attend a threading demonstration at Skin & Body Renewal by Dr Maureen at their Greenpoint spa, as I’ve heard a bit about this new technique but really wanted to know more and who best to learn from than Dr Maureen herself.   Some of you might have heard of threadlifts several years ago but these are totally different absorbable polymer threads.   What are the benefits of threading? Threading can be viewed as a non-surgical facelift. Depending on which threads you use, you can lift and/or firm the skin.   It improves skin tone, texture, pigmentation, scarring and stretch marks, as well as fat reduction. These results are long lasting as new collagen is produced.   How does it work? The threads have tiny barbs in them which hook onto the skin and allow you to lift the skin up. Secondly, the increased blood flow produces moreRead More

I am always looking for treatments that I have never tried before and only from the most professional people. You can’t take chances with your body or your face. That’s why I am so pleased to have discovered  Best Body Skin in Birdhaven.   Often salons which offer cutting- edge, skin and body treatments can feel intimidating, but no so with Best Body Skin. The staff, team of experts and the bright décor put one instantly at ease—especially important considering I was about to embark on a programme, which included multiple injections to my face!   After an in- depth consultation with somatologist Hajira, we decided to concentrate on the areas of my face, which cause me the greatest concern. Namely, pigmentation, dullness and loss of elasticity due to ageing, lack of sleep and general stress. In other words, I really wanted to try and recapture my youthful glow! NoRead More

I’ve been visiting Style Bar in Constantia for a few months, and I recently got the chance to try out their Palmyra branch.   Once again the salon was busy with clients popping in for product advise or just to say ‘Hi’ to their stylist.   My stylist was super fast and I left with extra time on my hands, which was an added bonus.   As my hair was pretty dry after the Summer, she advised to add a treatment. The Schwarzkopf BC Bonscure Power Shot Repair Concentrate did absolute wonders to my hair, which is now soft and bouncy and looking so much healthier.     If you haven’t had a treatment before, then your hair is missing out on some serious pampering. So here’s your chance to spoil yourself and your mom as well.   You can WIN a Treatment and Blow Dry for you and yourRead More

Here’s something different that I was asked to review. For once it has nothing to do with beauty. It’s a recipe and ingredients delivery service called Daily Dish.   There are 4 delicious meals delivered each week and you can choose from the following meal type: Classic menu (includes meat) Low Carb menu Vegetarian menu   This includes free delivery to your door on a Monday. I chose the Low Carb menu and here’s my experience.   Service, delivery and packaging were fantastic. The courier arrived on Monday afternoon, and all the ingredients were packaged neatly in a box with a cover letter and beautifully printed recipes to follow.     They advise you to put the ingredients in the fridge immediately, and even give you a suggested order of cooking your meals based on the expiry date of the ingredients.     As you can see, everything is beautifully packagedRead More

Skin Renewal introduces the latest non-surgical facelift treatment

Before & After pics

Skin Renewal is very excited to introduce the Miracu Threadlift – a non-surgical, no-scar facelift.   The treatment, which has been a hot favourite in Europe and the East for a few years now, is now available via Skin Renewal in South Africa.   During the procedure, which only medical doctors are qualified to perform, multi-strand threads are injected deep underneath the surface of the skin, using different lengths of thin acupuncture needles. The threads are strategically placed, guided by the natural tension lines of the skin. Once placed, they act as a scaffold, lifting loose and sagging skin.     The procedure also stimulates the production of collagen, and further creates a frame for the collagen to attach to, showing effects similar to that of a surgical facelift. The threads are reabsorbed and dissolved over a period of time, but due to the stimulation of collagen, the treatment showsRead More
