We all seem to lead such busy lives these days, rarely taking a moment for ourselves. So when Essential Beauty send you a voucher to test out some of their new treatments, it is essential you say yes.
We had the privilege of heading to the Rundle Mall salon to get our pamper on, right in the middle of Adelaide - an ideal spot for the time poor, especially if you work in the city (hello lunch time facial). With so many things to choose from, including piercing, permanent hair reduction, waxing, tanning, semi-permanent makeup, facials, microdermabrasions, teeth whitening and plenty more... Essential Beauty is your one stop beauty shop.
Although walk-ins are welcome, we decided to make a booking (just in case). We were greeted by the lovely staff who made us feel at ease, and carried an air of professionalism with them - even though there was a line of people waiting to be beautified.
We opted for a couple of treatments - the 'Bliss facial for sensitive skin' and a piercing, so we could experience two sides to the salon. The piercing was done in no time, before the facial took place, using only the best asap products to suit my skin. To add to the experience, the team gave me tips on how to maintain my silky smooth skin after the 30 (very relaxing) minutes were up, before I walked out feeling refreshed and beautiful.
If you're looking for a place to go and get pampered, Essential Beauty will definitely have something for you, with locations all over SA. Head to their website for more information.
Thanks to the team at Essential Beauty for looking after us.

His latest film The Image Book is a fragmented, often overwhelming collage of images and sounds from disparate contexts.
A genre-blending thriller, drama and romance, exploring the phenomenon of catfishing from the catfish’s POV. Who You Think I Am is masterfully carried by veteran actress Juliette Binoche, who somehow manages to elicit sympathy to an unsympathetic cause.
The film could’ve very well devolved into the kind of old-man-yells-at-cloud platitudes we hear all the time about technology, but Assayas is a more deft handler of these conversations than most.
The power of theatre to realistically, yet conceptually tackle taboo topics in society is proven by local company Velvet Chase Productions in their performance of Daniella Candida’s #nofilter, a unique, expressive and emotive exploration of mental illness, its causes, its effects, and the many faces of it.
Rose Callaghan’s comedic listicle is a welcome addition to the Rhino Room’s cracking line up.
