Men’s facials, what’s all that about? Unlike ones designed for our female counterparts, male facials are developed to combat those skincare problems Men all commonly face: ingrown hairs, flakey skin, infamous razor burn and the rest. There’s dozens of different treatments, but most male facials combine massage techniques with a deep cleanse to create definition while keeping skin fresh and toned. Sign us up!

What to expect?

Male facials tend to stick to seven simple steps, including cleansing, exfoliating, steaming, an anti-ageing face mask, toning, moisturising and a relaxing massage. The deep cleanse and exfoliation come first, and pesky blackheads may also be extracted; trust us, it’s painful but worth it. For the finishing touches, your aesthetician will remove any bits of dirt and debris using oils infused with things like sandalwood and vanilla (no flowery nonsense here). You’ll leave with an immediate healthy glow that should last 48-72 hours, plus long-lasting benefits you can really see and feel.

Know before you go

  • Facials can be adapted to benefit each and every skin type, so as long as you let the therapist know about your specific requirements at the start of the treatment, you’ll be good to go!
  • Do not shave immediately before your appointment. Shaving can leave skin feeling tender, sore and especially sensitive to products, so whipping off that fuzz the day or evening before is a much better option.

The sciencey stuff

If your complexion is in need of some maintenance and you want to transform your skin from rough to smooth, don’t rule facials out. The body’s healing process can slow down for many reasons, and factors like exposure to the sun and bad life choices will also take their toll. Facials are effective in reducing this damage, boosting the production of collagen with massage and revealing new cells with exfoliation. Late nights will mess with your face, but a facial will fix it.

Why everyone is talking about the LVL Lash Lift...

Lift, volume and length – the holy trinity of show-stopping eyes. One 45-minute treatment promises to deliver all three, without the need for extensions or falsies. Intrigued? We don’t blame you! If you’ve always desired Bambi-like lengths, but the maintenance isn’t your thing and you’re fed up with grappling with an eyelash curler every morning, it’s time to look into Lash Lifts.

 

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT?
Your fabulous flutter will begin with your therapist removing any makeup and oils from your eyes, before placing a soft fabric guard over your lower lashes to keep them out of the way. A small silicon shield will then be put on each of your lids close to the lash line, and your lashes will gently be lifted up and pressed onto the shield. A lifting gel is then applied to the roots of the lashes and left on to set. After 10 minutes, the gel is removed and a neutralising solution is applied. Finally, a tint is applied to give your peepers extra pow, followed by a conditioning serum to coax your lashes off the silicon pad. One final comb through later and you have achieved perfect lashes from the moment you wake up.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
You can choose from three levels of lift – small, medium or large, depending on how much drama you’re after.
Your flutter will last for around six weeks – perfect for a special event, holiday or big night out.
If you have sparse lashes and are looking for a dramatically longer and fuller look, you may get on better with extensions or LashDip.

THE SCIENCEY STUFF
Unlike a traditional lash perm, lash lifts and LVL Lashes straighten your natural lashes at the root to create the appearance of longer, thicker lashes. This may sound scary, but it actually uses a milder solution than eyelash perming and the flat eyelid shields are designed with your comfort in mind.
