Image therapy from Therapie Belfast

 A few months ago I was offered a course of treatments of my choice from Therapie Clinic in Belfast. I initially wanted to go for their laser hair removal but I was contraindicated out of this choice - I’m hoping that now I’m off medications this is something I can revisit - so I went with a course of prescriptive facials using Image Skincare. 
Spoiler alert: I loved them. 

The course was three treatments over three months - slightly longer in my case thanks to my bonkers schedule and their packed out books - and in that time I've noticed a vast improvement in the texture of my skin, a drop in pigmentation and redness, and a suppleness that I just haven’t received from other products or facials. In my first Therapie post I wrote about their Ormedic facial, an all natural service using botanical extracts; great for those who have never had a proper heavy duty facial before - like me - and those who don’t have huge problem areas but still need a bit of love. 

It’s important to note that there is no right or wrong when it comes to (decent) natural or man made ingredients. There is only preference. If you don’t like synthetics then stick with the ormedic range, it's worth it, but I really don’t mind how a product is made as long it works, isn’t hugely marked up in price, and is bunny friendly (within reason but thats a different post). My next two Image signature facials - signature because they’re tailored completely to your needs - took the regime to a different level, much more intense but still very little downtime in terms of peeling and redness. I noticed a more long term result which helped during the long gaps between appointments. Pro tip: Appointments are extremely busy during evenings and weekends, if you don’t want to wait I would recommend hitting up the 9-5 slots!

I’ll be honest and say that, although I loved the Ormedic facial, the signature facials were my favourite treatments. We used pretty much the same products both times I had the Signature facelift but we increased the durations and intensity in the second treatment, if you were to opt for long term care you would see the treatments develop based on both your immediate and long term needs. I love knowing that theres a remedy for everything and that the treatments aren't following some pre-planned format for all clients. 

Niamh was fab at knowing exactly what my skin needed. We started with Image Vital C cleanser - which aims to reduce redness and boost hydration but more importantly it smells amazing - and then moved on to layering different masks, including the Image Ageless Total Resurfacing Mask which is happily available to buy - not all of the products are allowed for retail - and is packed full of AHAs to help with aging and pigmentation as well as texturally resurfacing the skin too! Another vital C product we used was their enzyme mask which eats up dead skin  and contains vitamins A, C, and E; great for dry dehydrated skin and minor redness. 

One of things that surprised me was the layering of each of product rather than removing each step as it finished. Slowly building up the products on my skin, working them in, letting them mingle and tingle and work their magic just that little bit more and all in only 45 minutes!

Unlike the Ormedic facial the Signature facial is much more prescriptive, much more functional, but also a lot quicker; I work in the centre of Belfast and could easily nip out on my lunch to get it done, and with minimal irritation or down time you wouldn’t feel completely ridiculous going back to the office afterwards either. 

To book your free consultation just call Therapie Belfast and they will talk you through all of their treatments, whether it's facials like mine, laser hair removal or even a cheeky injectable, they will sort you out!

My Homage To The Gods Of WAH

Hello boys & girls! And welcome new followers. Michelle & I are very excited to share our thoughts with you.
Ok, cheesy bit over with, it's been a while since I've done a proper NOTD post, I was very conscious that I was being too nail heavy so have avoided writing about my recent weird/disastrous creations. But I have to mention my current talons because I've had so much feedback on them from friends & colleagues.  First up, these are not my design, those in the know will recognise them from WAH NAILS.
[edit] I forgot to mention that I saw a post from Little Red Fox where she did a much closer take on the design which inspired me to have a go! Maybe this could be the start of a Nail Meme? [/edit] My interpretation is loose as I didn't have the colours to just straight copy them. Secondly, this was my first ever attempt at leopard print nails so its a bit dodgy I apologise. My favourite nail is my left thumb as you see below (apologies for the dodgy photography…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x

obsession? or Collection?

Just before Christmas my best friend Gayle was expressing her shopping woes when it came to my present. Know my love for Barry M she wanted to get me some but was scared as she didn't know what I already had! So she asked me to blog my collection for future reference. 
CRINGE!!!
Dare I reveal the entirety of my obsession? Because, lets face it, I can pretty it up by saying I'm collecting but I'm plain ole obsessed and everyone knows it! So here goes...






So there it is, a close up of my ever expanding "collection". Or at least the ones I have with me in Belfast. I have more in storage & sneaky order from Cult Nails (treatments rather than new colours as much as it pained me not to indulge) on the way.
I think I need help. Any NPAA* groups in belfast?
