Last week, I was invited to Woodlands Beauty Clinic’s new store on Jamaica Street for an eyebrow treatment and LVL lashes.
Woodlands have just opened their third clinic in the Baltic Triangle area – which, in case you didn’t know, was just voted one of the coolest places to live in the UK – and looks extremely fresh and clean with the woodwork and white bench tops. It’s cute and compact but feels spacious with high ceilings and an upstairs where my treatments were carried out.
The music was extremely soothing and relaxing. It would be very easy to fall asleep – they even offer blankets!
I have never had my lashes treated previous to this but a lot of my friends have and I’d always been eager to try something. I went with the LVL lash treatment which uses your own lashes, curls them and tints them to make them appear blacker and thicker.
The treatment took around 40 minutes and wasn’t painful in the slightest. It was a weird feeling at first but nothing uncomfortable.
No one could believe me when I said I wasn’t wearing any mascara. My eyes look amazing! Now that I’m used to my eyes looking ready once I wake up, I’ll be wanting my lashes done every few months!
My eyebrows were in serious need of some TLC. I tried to think back to the last time I had my brows done, and it’s been that long that I really can’t remember. Being the poor student that I am, I usually just took tweezers to them to keep them in shape. I even took scissors to them once. That was a cry for help in itself.
I have naturally thick and black eyebrows, so when I saw the tint applied I was extremely apprehensive that they would turn out too dark. My hair is naturally dark and my skin really pale, so my brows are quite the feature on my face!
Antonia was great with the waxing and tinting and was as gentle as ever. My eyes didn’t water once! When the brows were finished I felt they were a bit big for my own preference and it was not a bother to Antonia who took them down a touch and even toned down the tint.
How amazing are the results!
I’m amazed at the outcome and have fallen back in love with my brows. I’ve had so many comments about them, and will definitely be returning once the caterpillars grow back. I may have scouse brows, but I really like them.
The girls at Woodlands offer a range of beauty treatments from waxing to facials and tanning to manicures. Get yourself onto their website and have a scroll on their Instagram (you may even spot yours truly) to get yourself booked in for some well-deserved TLC.
