No More Grin and Bear It! Trust LYCON Hot Waxing

It would be cruel to describe waxing as an enjoyable experience, but there are ways to make it as pain-free as it can get. As long as you choose LYCON, the brand that has brought salon waxing into the collective consciousness since 1978!

IMG_3339

So, be brave and go straight for the hot wax. Despite what your instincts tell you, hot wax is much friendlier and effective for most of the skins. It’s soft and ready to apply in a matter of seconds, and it’s less painful to peel off with one quick pull.

 

Here’s a selection of hot waxes to choose from:

 

Our top pick is the original and legendary Apricot hot wax LYCON launched in 1979. Four decades later, it’s still a bestseller in salons around the world. Its formula is very gentle, yet very strong, and it conditions and nurtures skin while waxing.

 

With a luscious strawberry scent, the SoBerry Delicious not only smells heavenly, but it’s easy to work with too! It contains LYCON’s unique titanium dioxide technology, which makes the application creamy and flexible, excellent for sensitive areas, perfect for Brazilian waxing and short 1mm hair.

 

A scrumptious waxing experience comes with the SoYummy hot wax, which is best described as a chocolate treat without the calories. It has a super gentle formulation with iron oxide and micro mica that makes it great for all waxing.

 

If this selection of hot waxes hasn’t put your mind at ease and you’re still wondering “just how painful” waxing is, there are few more tips we could share, to help prep and soothe your skin.

 

Exfoliate the day before, as it helps eliminate ingrown hairs and gives your skin a super smooth finish. Be sure to continue to exfoliate after waxing too, with an all-natural salt or sugar scrub, once or twice a week in the shower, as this will help buff off dry skin and dead cells, and unblock congested pores. We recommend our light and creamy body scrub made with grapefruit, lemon and bamboo granules.

 

Tone your skin after waxing, with an antiseptic or astringent, in order to decrease the risk of infection and tighten the pores in the process. Our LYCOTANE skin cleanser, made with jasmine and chamomile, is a reliable, light and refreshing clean-up nurse for your skin post wax?

 

Moisturise to lock in your body’s natural oils. Our go-to moisturiser is the Perfect Finish, an apricot, sweet almond and lavender oil that keeps your skin supple and hydrated.

 

Overtime, regular waxing with high quality LYCON products will protect your skin and lead to finer hairs with far less grow back, and the ‘grin and bear it’ days of waxing will be a thing of the past – trust LYCON!

 

LYCON waxing products are available at leading beauty salons across the UAE and wider GCC.

Achieve Fuller, Plumper Lips with Fillerina’s Lip Volume (Dosage 3)

FILLERINA Lip Volume_Dosage_3_AED 349

Every girl wishes for beautiful and fuller lips. However, not all of us are naturally blessed with pouty lips and most of us lack the inclination to try lip fillers and injections as such procedures can have some serious side effects and might not give us the results we want. The best thing is to go for Fillerina Lip Volume Dermo-Cosmetic Filler Treatment (Dosage 3) to subtly add volume and shape your lips without resorting to invasive surgical procedures.


Fillerina Lip Volume (AED 289)
is a dermo-cosmetic filler treatment, specifically for lips. Six highly penetrating Hyaluronic Acids help to provide a more voluminous, precisely-defined, younger looking pout.

Non-invasive but incredibly effective, Fillerina Lip Volume (Dosage 3) helps more advanced signs of skin ageing – ‘plumping’ creases around the lip line from the inside, thanks to a potent cocktail of hyaluronic acids and conditioning oils and extracts. Found naturally in skin, hyaluronic acid is phenomenally hydrophilic, meaning it attracts and retains up to 1000 times its molecular weight in water, to keep lips smooth and hydrated.

For best results, apply to clean dry lips and leave to sink in for a few minutes. Repeat this process around 5 times a day for a month to see results and make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day to enhance the results of this treatment further.
Fillerina is the result of 5 years of research at Labo Cosprophar Suisse, renowned for its expertise, high standards of clinical safety and ability to bring best-in-class products to the cosmetic industry and consumers. The Fillerina range is available at leading pharmacies across the UAE and is priced from AED 289.  For more information please visit http://www.labosuisse.com.

Give your Hair Some Summer Care

Today I’m reviewing the Palmers coconut oil formula deep conditioning protein pack. This hair treatment is infused with Vitamin E and Raw coconut oil harvested from coconut palm tress. It is formulated with ethically sustainable sourced ingredients .

IMG_6731

Palmers products are generally very natural based products and they are made to cater to sensitive skin and pregnant women especially . Since I’m now an expecting mommy Im very conscious of what I use on my body. It is very important to stay away from products that contained bleach or parabens .

The Palmers coconut oil treatment contains no sulphates , no parabens , no phthalates , no mineral oil , no gluten and no dyes. They are safe for everyone.

I used the Palmers coconut oil formula deep conditioning protein pack once and for someone who has thick hair that goes curly, frizzy and fluffy when it dries I thought I’d give this stuff a go and I was not disappointed. This stuff works like a gel without it looking greasy and does the job nicely – it doesn’t dry too hard either and easily washes out. When I generally review hair treatments or masks , I use them at-least 2 times to see the difference . But with this product I saw a change within one wash. I have long hair and this product was suitable for only one wash . Although for medium and short hair they can use this one sachet for multiple uses depending upon how sparingly they apply it .

The Palmers conditioner has a lovely coconut tropical fragrance and it lingers for long . But over all I found this treatment very nourishing to the hair and will definitely be repurchasing it soon . Also since my hair is cooler treated and very dehydrated I find it necessary to use deep hair conditioning treatments once a week to restore the nutrition in your hair apart form you daily conditioner .

 

 

 

 

Summer Time Extra Love

IMG_6733

Summer time means wearing sandals and  spending time out-doors. We religiously use sun screen or sun block all over our face and body, and tend to neglect our feet. Our feet see the worst of summer ,they get exposed to sun, heat and dust. Today I’m going review the Palmers coca butter formula magic foot cream. This cream is infused with vitamin E, peppermint oil and mango butter. The palmers magic foot cream is formulated to deeply moisturizers rough, dry skin and soothes tired feet.

I am really glad I found this amazing product from palmers. The Magic Foot cream is a great product to deal with dry skin and thick skin feet. It also helped me when I had very sore feet from walking everyday with a heavy pregnant belly, in the summers. Before I would go to sleep I would apply this over my feet and the next day I would be ready again for walking. My Skin felt softer afterwards but this was also following a soak, scrub and pumice stone. Took a bit of rubbing in but maybe I used too much which is why I’ve said a little goes a long way.I have done this for two nights and feet feel good already.I am now using it on my elbows as well and it really helps!

The palmers formula has a lovely mouse-creamy consistency, rather than a thick balm which absorbs into the skin immediately and leaves your skin feeling plump. You can also apply it 2 times a day and will not leave you skin feeling greasy.

I have tried all sorts of foot creams, even some costing much more than the palmers cocoa butter magic foot cream, but this is definitely the best. You do need to put socks on immediately after using but it soaks in quite quickly and a little goes a very long way. It is not heavily fragranced which is also a plus point for me as in pregnancy I have found me self turning away from fragranced products as my sense of smell is enlightened.
