Hair removal by electrolysis, red vein treatments, skin-tag removal and advanced facial treatments.
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
‘A best-selling classic, relied upon by so many of our clients. It’s been clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin firmness and hydrate the skin… and it takes just two weeks to achieve results.’
Racheal’s right-hand woman, Amelia also holds CIBTAC qualifications as well as NVQ Level 3. With more than eight years in the industry, she’s been with the salon from the word go, while training and ever since qualifying.
3D lash extensions (and she’s good!)
‘I adore doing them – there’s such an instant difference. Clients look in the mirror and love them – it’s so nice to see that obvious excitement.’
Elemis Peptide 4 Night Recovery Cream-Oil
‘It really works, boosting night-time skin renewal - a moisturiser and oil combined. And the smell is amazing.’
Jen holds Level 3 VTCT and Level 2 City & Guilds qualifications and has been trained in Clarins facials and massage.
Those sublime facials and massages.
‘I love how they relax the clients and make them feel good. There is a lot of satisfaction there.'
Clarins Double Serum
‘It helps with five functions of the skin – amazing – and now there’s added turmeric, which helps the cells work together to improve the skin.’
With Level 2 Beauty Therapy BTCT qualifications and currently studying for Level 3, Soreia’s commitment to the beauty industry is obvious. Also part of her growing portfolio of achievements are off-island Clarins facial and make-up courses.
‘You see instant results – really satisfying. And I love giving makeup tutorials.
Sensitive Cleansing Wash from Elemis
‘It’s really helped me – since using it I’ve had fewer breakouts and my skin has improved enormously. Lovely.’
Involved in the beauty industry from the age of 16, Becky holds NVQ Levels 2&3 qualifications and is practised in reflexology and sports massage. With a wealth of experience behind her, she’s been a Clarins specialist for years.
‘Not a common qualification these days, but so effective. Super-effective CACI lifting treatments and Crystal Clear’s new COMCIT resurfacing and micro-needling treatments are also on her ‘love it’ list – ‘the results speak for themselves’.
Clarins Blue Orchid Oil
‘Without a doubt, it’s Clarins Blue Orchid Oil, a 100% pure plant extract treatment oil for the face. You can mix it with your Clarins night cream or face mask. A real hard-worker.’
Receptionist Jo’s friendliness and calm unflappability reflect years spent in a variety of exciting jobs. She trained as a chef and at the Cordon Bleu Academy in London, and worked in the capital as well as in Germany and Abu Dhabi, before returning to Guernsey and becoming an open market property negotiator. Now it’s beauty all the way, and she’s enjoying every moment.
The classic – Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
‘I can’t believe the way it instantly brightens, tightens and smooths the skin. Mind you, I love all the products here…’
