60 seconds with Emma!

How long have you worked at No.6 for? I started working at No.6 in December 2017, just before Christmas.

What do you enjoy most about working at No.6? The learning part of it. I have recently been on the Dermaquest training programme and really enjoyed learning about the products and treatments. I had the Dermaquest Pumpkin Peel as a facial the other day and my skin feels amazing!

What is your favourite treatment? Oooh, I like them all!

What is your favourite beauty product?  Environ’s AVST and the Eye Creams. I trained in Environ around 12years ago and have worked alongside the products many times since. I highly recommend them.

What is your no.1 beauty tip/skincare tip? Use salicylic acid on spots and ingrown hairs. It works a treat and can give results within a few days.

Get Ready and Go! New facial and beauty package

Get Ready and GoAfter hearing all about the new facial and beauty package at twice-award winning No.6 in Tunbridge Wells, Get Ready and Go, I had to give it a try. I mean, who doesn’t want to be pampered and be set for a night out?

No.6 launched their online booking system last year which meant that I could snap up an appointment conveniently. On arrival I was greeted by Josie, their lovely receptionist, and after finishing with her client Aesthetician Beth came to welcome me. The ladies told me that owner Samantha had developed this new package due to popular demand. No.6 pride themselves on listening to their clients and developing signature facial treatments to meet clients’ needs and give the best possible results and experience.

Get Ready and Go 2Firstly, I enjoyed a relaxing facial which involved a thorough cleanse to remove my makeup and prepare the skin for the next step – a Vitamin C micro-peel based light exfoliator, which smelt divine. Vitamin C brightens the complexion and the beads gently exfoliate for a deep pore cleanse. The activator is then applied which dissolves the micro-beads and allows the Vitamin C to be absorbed at a deeper level, to refine and give the skin that special glow! The Aestheticians at No.6 tailor the ingredients to each individual, so the next step was a prescribed mask to treat my particular skincare needs. Whilst the mask was on, I was treated to a shoulder massage. Wow, I was really floating on cloud nine at this stage. Finally, vitamin serums were applied to my face and neck, as was SPF which you should wear daily.

Whilst I was still on the facial bed, the second stage of the package was a nail file and Jessica Phenom paint. This revolutionary paint really does dry very quickly and gives a gel-like shine without the use of a lamp or having to buff the nails. I chose a deep navy from a great range of colour choice.

Get Ready and Go 3Now was time to get those brows of mine “on fleek” and have a tidy. Maintaining your eyebrows, not only is quick and fairly pain-free, it really does make a difference in framing your face.

I was then taken to the makeup counter and was coloured matched to Jane Iredale’s foundation, which was applied and ensured that I felt comfortable enough to hit the town straight from my appointment. You can apply this makeup straight after treatment because of the pure mineral ingredients.

This super relaxing facial, which includes key service beauty treatments, is suitable for ladies and gentlemen (the Jessica paint is substituted for a nail tidy). The package is also suitable during pregnancy.

Snap up this introductory offer for yourself, or a loved one – it makes a fantastic gift! Only £55.00 (saving £30!) until the 23.12.2017. READY, SET, GO!

Do you recognise your own beauty?

Do you recognise your own beauty?

If someone asked you to describe yourself, what would you say? Do you see the beauty in yourself?

We recognize that in today’s modern world many of us undervalue the true beauty in ourselves. We see it in others but are harsh on ourselves. Our body is overworked and tired; it is understandable that sometimes we find it hard to feel beautiful. Celebrity magazines and social media filters constantly showcase what society deems beautiful, but here at No.6 we want you to determine your own beauty.

Beauty is happiness. It is simple. It is believing in yourself.
