eyebrow threading st albans
October 19, 2016

Eyebrow threading has become a real must have beauty treatment in the last 10 years. This ancient technique is something that is not new to our founder Aisha Khayat, who leant the skill from her cousin in her early teens.

Aisha was one of the pioneers of this art form, threading, in St Albans when she launched Glamourize Hair and Beauty offering threading to a historic Roman City in Hertfordshire. By the time the salon had become established a business expansion was underway and the salon became known as Ginger & Lime. We are now The Salon St Albans, and have grown an expansive client base and have a fully functioning eyebrow bar at The Salon St Albans.

Our brow bar offers threading, waxing, tinting, high definition hd brows, express lashes and tips on how to create the perfect high definition eyebrows. For a full list of our services visit our service menu.

October 5, 2016

Skin is very temperamental with most clients suffering with sensitive combination skin. Over many years most of us have tried quite a few skincare products. From some of the high street versions like Simple and Olay to the more premium end of the market like Clinque and Dermalogica. After so many years of trying different products from these brands our founder came across one of the best so far… Decleor!

Decleor products are naturally derived and that’s what caught our attention.

Here’s Aisha’s story!

My skin has always been dry, then oily, and sometimes I had some blemish issues – not too noticeable but very annoying for me. I had always suffered with combination skin and I put it down to diet and not drinking enough water, oily skin and hormone changes taking place. I discovered a Decleor product called ‘Aroma night’. It is a balm to be used at night, which helps to restore, re-hydrate and reduce redness and blemishes of the skin. Not only could it look to help reduce or even rid of these problems, it can also reduce scars (which I would use on my post birth c-section scar).  After approximately 2 – 3 weeks of using my Decelor skin care range I have noticed my skin has balanced and the dryness has improved. I always knew that dry skin will look aged and tired. I wanted a product that would make my skin glow whilst not leaving it feeling oily. I use just 3 products from Decleor twice a day (morning and night) to ensure a smooth complexion.

Decleor Aroma Cleanse Essentia Cleansing Milk 200ml –  Decleor’s description of this product is as follows: “A light-textured lotion perfect for cleansing and make-up removal on all skin types. Our paraben-free forumula contains Neroli Essential Oil to protect, repair and fight dehydration, leaving skin moisturised and radiant plus Sweet Almond Oil to help soften, smooth and bring comfort to the skin.”

1When used to the instructions, twice a day, this product is a winner for me. It gave me soft skin, cleaned off all of my make up and my skin never feels dry after using. It also contains neroli, an essential oil, which helps to treat skin exposed to stress and is a good hydrator. I would rate this product seriously as a 9/10. The reason it is not a 10 is it doesn’t quite get all of the make up off, particularly black eye liner, but it only ever leaves a little bit behind and the remaining comes off with the toner or the next morning when I re-clean my face with the cleansing milk.

They have a couple of toner options and I started off with one of them, but eventually switched to this one – Decleor Aroma Cleanse Fresh Matifying Lotion (toner) – Delecor states that this is a “A fresh lotion which tones, purifies and mattifies combination to oily skin. This paraben-free toner contains Ylang Ylang Essential Oil to help purify and balance the skin, Papaya Extract with its exfoliating properties helps to refine the skin and Mineral Powders to absorb excess sebum leaving a matte finish.”

2This toner has a different essential oil in it – Ylang Ylang (more below on this!). I believe using this toner once in the morning and once in the evening is why my skin is the best it can be – well hydrated, smooth, clean and moisturised. Once applied, this too doesn’t dry my skin out or make it feel dry and I believe this is down to the essential oil they use.

Finally from the Decleor range, I also use this product twice a week (I use it as part of my morning skincare routine) – Decleor Aromessence Ylang Ylang Super Serum – It is perfect for oily skin – finally a way to control the oil! Decleor say the serum’s “…Essential Oils purify the epidermis, reducing excess sebum and closing the pores. It is a real efficiency booster for the Aroma Purete Shine Control Oxygenating Fluid’

3All I do is put a little on my hands and pat it around the entirety of my face and neck. It helps for any moisturisers you put on afterwards to seep into the skin better.

I’m thankful I discovered a natural skin care range that I feel confident using on my skin with my little baby breastfeeding and being so close to my face all the time. I highly recommend!
