Eyebrows. Such a simple thing but goodness do they make a difference to your face!
I went along to the Dove Spa (inside Virgin Active, Canary Wharf) last week to try out their new Ultimate Brow Treatment. My brows had been left to their own devices for over a month (shame on me) and while bushy brows look great on Cara, it’s not something I can pull off.
My 10-minute consultation started with a patch test (essential if you’re to have the tinting) and a detailed talk on what I wanted from my treatment, the shape I like best, my lifestyle – everything you could possibly discuss about brows. And there was surprisingly a lot!
After the colour was left on for 10 minutes it was down to the shaping. I prefer threading to waxing (less painful) and after each brow was done, my therapist let me check I was happy with the shape, which I certainly was.
After both brows had been threaded, she tidied them up with some tweezers et voila; I had a set of perfectly groomed, rather dark (but that faded slightly after a couple of days) expertly shaped brows. The results last up to six weeks.
It always amazes me the difference a good set of brows can make; they really do frame the face and finish your look off perfectly.
The Ultimate Brow treatment at Dove Spa is the most thorough and bespoke brow treatment I’ve ever had and my face thanks me for it!
While you’re there, why not treat yourself to a few Dove Spa products? I got the ‘Make Me Feel Relaxed’ Bath & Shower Gel and Body Lotion as I can never be too relaxed! I also got the Mineral Indulgence Thermal Recovery Mask to give my skin a real treat. It contains thermal water with essential mineral direct from the Pyrenees mountains, vitamin E to help prevent premature skin oxidation and argan and grape seed oil to improve skin’s firmness and softness.
