It’s amazing how fabulous and confident a person can feel just with a simple trip to a beautician. No matter how small the treatment the ‘feel-good’ factor kicks in almost immediately - the fresh feeling skin, the smooth tanned legs, and a stress-relieving massage can make one feel a million euros.
Just one way to feel like a queen, or king, is by treating yourself to a treatment at one of the many beauty salons in Galway.
I took a trip down to Purejoy Beauty in Mainguard Street recently for a back, neck, and shoulder massage and an indulgent signature Purejoy facial. A walk up the steps to Purejoy Beauty instantly transports you to a whole different world which is peaceful, relaxing, and welcoming. I thoroughly enjoyed my treatments which released any built up stress and left my skin feeling like new again.
There are many treatments on offer here with numerous facials that will suit all kinds of needs, skin types, and budget. The products used include Dermalogica and MATIS both of which have been proven to help correct skin problems. There also more advanced non-surgical treatments which include a glycolic peel treatment and microdermabrasion which is great for achieving younger skin.
If it’s de-fuzzing you’re after then there is a whole range of waxing for both men and women. For the more adventurous women specialised bikini waxes are available.
Other great treatments include the Oceane body treatment, purifying back treatment, ice cold slimming, Purejoy peel and polish, the platinum detox, air mist tans, hand and foot massages, and eye tinting/shaping/waxing. For a present to a loved one or to yourself then one of the many day, pre-holiday, or bridal packages could be perfect choice. What’s not to like?
