ABBW Prep: Fake Tanning and Eyebrow Shaping

1 Oct

In my preparation for The Australian Beauty Blogger Weekend (ABBW) the weekend just gone, I booked in a few “must/absolutely/will die if they see me in this state” beauty appointments. A spray tan and an eyebrow shape of course – the two quickest ways to looking polished and ready for any big event where you will be photographed a lot. A lady of beauty can’t be surrounded by 84 other beauty bloggers looking like a ghost with bushy brows now can she?!

I made a trip to Lush Spray Tanning & Beauty at Albion after a few recommendations (my Mum has been there and so has Bec at Perfectly Smooth).

I decided to go with the Velocity Tan by Vani-T (rapid tan) as I wanted to be able to wash it off that night, I was catching an early flight the next day to Sydney and I didn’t want to stink the other passengers out. My other reason was that I wanted a natural looking tan (look for formulas that have a green base) that was going to make me look like I just stepped off the beach in the Maldives.

Velocity Tan by Vani-T is the world’s first RAPID Tan with Certified Organic DHA & Quad Bronzing Technology. Vani-T Liquid Sun’s internationally renowned luscious natural and organic based formula is now available to wash and wear in as little as 1 hour (1 hour – light tan, 2 hours – medium tan, 3 – 4 hours – dark tan). Wash off after the desired development time and the colour keeps developing. No waiting for hours for your tan to develop, tan remnants on your sheets, or an excuse for not going to the gym!

Velocity contains:

  • Ecocert Approved DHA (certified organic)
  • Quad bronzing technology – uses 4 bronzing ingredients for a deeper, darker looking tan
  • Transdermal delivery – unique blend of ingredients provides fast acting tan (1 – 4 hours) and guaranteed perfect fading
  • Certified Organic Aloe Vera Extract – moisturising
  • Quandong Extract – rich in Vitamin C, diminishes appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Australian Kakadu Plum Extract – offering 50 times the Vitamin C of anything else known to man, it offers intense anti-oxidant, anti-aging and collagen building properties
  • Cehami – an indigenous Australian botanical which has been used for centuries, and is scientifically proven to contain unprecedented skin renewal, hydrating and anti-inflammatory properties, for younger, healthier looking skin
  • Vitamins A & E – anti-oxidants
  • Odour inhibitor from essential oil blend
Sounds amazing huh? Well it is! Not only were the products on offer of great quality, but the staff at Lush were all so friendly and professional. You would think that a spray tan of such high quality and cutting edge technology would be in excess of $45 right? Well all tans at Lush Spray Tanning are only $35! Which is really good for the high quality tan that you’re getting.
At the moment, I am 8 days into my tan and it is still visible. It has faded really well and has been the longest lasting tan I have ever had. Even the boy said that my tan looked good…. C’MON! Boys would never normally comment on fake tans. That’s got to say something right?

Once I arrived in Sydney on the Friday for ABBW, I dropped my bags off at the hotel and headed to the Fleur De Lys MediSpa for an Eyebrow Tidy. The Fleur De Lys is a Moroccan oasis just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Sydney CBD. Located in Woollahra, the salon provides you with an experience like no other. As soon as you walk in you are immediately put at ease and the moroccan decor and scent of rare oils transport you to a calming oasis that soothes and rejuvenates your inner health and wellbeing. I only popped in for an eyebrow tidy, which I was in desperate need of, but even my experience in that short time was enough to rave about. Let’s just say, I don’t let just anybody touch my eyebrows, and I am pleased to say the beauty therapist was great.

The salon is the first in Sydney to offer the authentic Moroccan Hammam (pictured below). Treatments can be done in the specially designed Hammam room – an oasis of steam with beautifully tiled walls and soothing oriental oils, where you can relax on a heated marble table which helps stimulate blood circulation and opens the skins pores. They are also the first in Australia to offer the “Gold Facial”, a unique 100% natural and luxurious facial treatment that uses pure 24 carat gold to deliver glow and radiance to the skin.

Fleur de Lys Medispa are the forefront of beauty spas, with a high standard of service and the use of the latest technologies and skin treatments to help with any skin or health problems. On top of the Moroccan Hammam and pure gold facials, the spa is also home to an Infrared Sauna, slimming treatments, a top of the line hand and foot spa room, a treatment room for couples and a Vichy shower spa capsule (above). Not to mention the sensuous products they use, in particular the Le Sens de Marrakech range which utilises Moroccan Argan oils and other skin loving oils/extracts.
Soon you will be able to gain access to the products on offer at Fleur De Lys MediSpa, when the salon launches their online store on October 4. I used a sample of the Le Sens de Marrakech Time Out Mask, and my skin has never felt smoother. Not to mention the scent… absolutely divine.
