On finding a beauty gem close to home…

For years, our area has been looked over in the ‘awesome salon’ category. Yes’ we’ve had the usual franchises, but, honestly, they make you feel like a slab of meat on a conveyor belt. I’ve been yearning for a spot where people know you and your preferences when it comes to beauty and skincare.

So, a good while ago, I discovered this gem. And more recently, this gem opened its doors on my doorstep!

They are called Radiance Skin, Beauty and Nails, and are based at the NHC Centre in Honeydew. Liz, the owner runs the salon and does the treatments as well. When you arrive, you’re welcomed by name, and taken to the treatment room.

I had an Environ Peel treatment at the salon – I’ve never been able to find a salon that did them in my area (bar the usual franchises) and I’ve been itching to see how it works and how my skin reacts, and throughout the treatment, Liz gave me tips and advice on how to get the most out of my home care regime. Stuff I never knew I could combine! She also introduced me to a few new products I’m dying to get my hands on.

She also advised me what treatment to do next, based on how my skin reacted. Nobody’s ever done that. Ever.

The salon’s prices are reasonable, and it’s beautifully decorated. They also run specials on treatments… keep an eye on their Facebook page for those. You can also visit their website to learn more about the team.

They also stock the Environ skin care ranges, as well as Optiphi. They are also planning to expand into medical aesthetics like needling, etc.

I’m happy to have discovered this little oasis close to home, and I want to go and try out some of their other treatments too! I’m thinking a massage for these knotted shoulders of mine!

*Note: I booked and paid for the treatment myself. I just think more people should visit Radiance!
