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.

Big Smooth Cat from Dope Lemon, is one to listen to with a whiskey in one hand and a smoke in the other.
It is a direct antithesis to the breakable, synthetic materials and fast fashion that is churned out by chain stores en masse. McRae designs, sources materials, and sews each leather piece herself.

Look, I don’t know what the cowboys of the wild west used to listen to as they trudged their way across the great plains of Texas, but I doubt it was too dissimilar to Dope Lemon’s banjo-ridden track Stonecutters.
