My First Facial and Waxing Experience at Juice Salon Lucknow

Hello pretty ladies, hope you are all doing fine! Its been a while since I've updated the beauty category on this blog, and your messages kept on piling about the same in my mail box. So, to clear them all at once I thought of sharing my recent facial and waxing experience done at this newly launched JUICE SALON located at Shahnazaf Road, Hazratganj, in Lucknow. Not so new as to say, this salon has been into existence for about one and half years now but I came across it only a month back when the owner called me over for a trial!

Juice as a brand is quite known for its exemplary services offered to both men and women by extremely talented professionals to maintain the quality and class! As for me, I'm not a regular visitor to salons and I don't even prefer splurging on my beauty and skin regimes but Juice seemed a mid-ranged affordable salon to try when I enquired about their service charges. 
You can read all details about my facial and waxing experience below!


FACIAL





Many girls of my age (as 23 years now) go in for frequent facials and spas, etc. but I prefer taking care of it at home in natural ways. To be honest, facials and I have never got along well. Every time I am back after getting one, I end up getting a nasty pimple the very next day or often by the evening itself. Having tried several brands, I can say none of them have shown that glow or skin lightening effect that one gets after a good facial for a good long time!

But, to my recent visit at Juice Salon, the consultants tested my skin and recommended me the MINRO VEGETAL FACIAL with BLACK MASK DE-TAN. I was particularly impressed with the name itself, and the beauty therapist guided me to a quiet and dimly lit room much like a spa setting and we went ahead with the process!



All the products that were set to use



Step 1 : Casual Cleaning



Step 2 : Cleansing



Step 3 : Toning



Step 4 : Scrubbing
(removes dead cells from your skin and also removes white-heads)



Step 5 : Ozone Steaming
(opens the skin pores which is essential for the skin to breathe easy)



Step 6 : Black & White Head Removal
(ensures removal of blockage in skin pores)



Step 7 : Massage (with Body Balm & Cream)



Step 8 : Application of Black Mask
(essential for making the face skin bright, firm and soft)




'Le Moor Black Mask by Remy Laure' claims has therapeutic properties. It is chemical and perfume free. It is rich in Vitamin A or Retinol and has natural antibiotics, trace elements and phyto hormones. It works great for de-tanning as it is full of ions, absorbs toxins and refines the epidermis to stimulate the skin. The much renowned black mask or 'Le Moor' had a wonderful cooling effect on my skin and felt gooey yet non-sticky, something like algae. It felt nice! The mask was allowed to stay for a good 25 minutes, not letting it dry at all.



Step 9 : Removal of Black Mask


The procedure was the same like all other facials. However, the techniques were so different than what I have ever experienced. Churning and grinding motion and acupressure techniques were used several times during the massage that I didn’t even realise when I went into deep slumber and believe me this has never happened before. Kudos to the beauty therapist Mitali Mishra who very sweetly managed to put me to sleep and wake me up all relaxed and rejuvenated! 




The entire facial costs Rs. 3000 in total and since its a little expensive one, I'd recommend it to each one who likes to pamper themselves once in a while for a lighter, brighter and radiant looking skin with no signs of pimples.

WAXING


Let me just break it to you that this was my first waxing experience ever. Yes, I'd been a waxing virgin till now. Always under the impression that I have the tiniest hair so they need not be removed, but while in conversation with this beauty therapist at Juice, she managed to convince me to bravely get my arms and under arms waxed.

I'm sure many girls like me are sceptical about getting their skin waxed because of the innumerous discomforting stories narrated to them by friends and cousins, saying its painful and not suitable for sensitive skin, etc. Well, I had similar thoughts once upon a time too, and then this consultant at the Juice Salon busted all the myths, and gave me a lovely waxing session using the best products available.




Step 1 : Application of Pre-Lotion



Step 2 : Application of Hot Wax

The therapist used 'RICA' brand wax with white chocolate flavor, on my skin. This Italian-based wax uses a vegetable oil base combined with glyceryl rosinate (the sticky substance) for quality hair removal with less pain. The advantages of using Rica wax are superior hair removal with gentle and nourishing anti-inflammatory care.



Step 3 : Application of Wax Strips over the Hot Wax and Rubbing



Step 4 : Pulling of Wax Strips in Patches

I'm sure you can see the difference in my skin in the picture above. The waxed part looks super clean and de-tanned. Tanning is a major issue for all of us girls and wearing cut sleeved clothes with tanned and patchy skin makes it difficult to put our best side forward, because we tend to feel not-so-confident. Waxing helps reduce tan and you can experience that yourself in no time!
 


Step 5 : Application of After Lotion

Waxing body hair can be done at home too, but it definitely won't satisfy you like the way you're treated by a professional at the salon. Well, waxing pulls hair out by the root, leaving skin hairless and smooth for two to six weeks. For me, its been two and a half weeks already and I haven't seen any re-growth of hair on my skin yet!

The entire set of RICA professional products were used during the entire waxing process, and true to their claim, the superior grip on the hair allowed removal in just one pull. No more re-applying and pulling and tugging. Both arms were done in a matter of minutes and didn't pain at all. I think that was the best part because I hate experiencing pain of any kind, and with that, I just have to mention that both my arms felt so smooth, pretty and light that I couldn't control touching myself from shoulders to my finger tips. Its was purely magical! ----------- Cost for full arms and under-arms waxing is Rs. 600 in total.

PS : I haven't attached any pictures from the process of getting my under-ams waxed for the sole reason that it looked explicit. But, I'd like to share that beauty is not the only reason people remove hair from their underarms; waxing also helps address body odour and other hygiene problems. However, the delicate skin in the underarm area can make waxing more painful than some other areas of the body, but may be lessened if the procedure is done properly. Well, it was definitely a less painful experience for me and my skin there felt soft and brighter like never before, so it was a total win! #MustTry
