The Body Shop Treatments

Did you know you can have a wide range of beauty treatments done at your local branch of The Body Shop? They kindly offered to have us try out some of these treats at their Liffey Valley branch recently.  

First of all, we got our eyebrows threaded - it was my first time and yes, threading is a weird sensation (kind of like having velcro ripped off your eyebrow if that makes sense) and slightly eye watering but it's no more painful than plucking really, and it's over in a flash. I was so impressed with the results, I'll definitely be going back. It gives such a tidy and sharp result. Behold Mags' before and after pics:



Eyebrow threading costs €12 and you can also have a host of other related treatments done such as eyelash and eyebrow tinting, and threading on other areas of the face. What I love about it is that it's a walk in service and you can just pop in while you're doing your shopping - you don't have to bother making out-of-your-way salon appointments.



We were then treated to a mini-facial by Donna, who was probably the most informative facialist we've ever been to. She really knows her stuff and is full of skincare tips and advice. She also had the knack of making you forget you were having a facial in the middle of a shop! These facials cost €15 which is redeemable against the purchase of any skincare products. If you are looking for new skincare, I would definitely recommend trying some products out by way of one of these facials. The Body Shop are also generous with samples so you can try stuff out at home too. We were introduced to some stand out products such as Vitamin C Microdermabrasion - reviews coming up.

Lastly, we were given a makeover by the lovely Tara, who used some of the Body Shop products we know and love such as their legendary Shimmer Cubes. Again makeovers are €15 redeemable against purchase and again, are a great way of trying out some new products.

We left the shop looking like absolute rides and sashayed around Liffey Valley lunching and shopping for the afternoon :-) I would highly recommend popping in to The Body Shop and 'treat'ing yourself next time you're out shopping.
