It's nice to see people sticking their necks out at the moment and that's why it's great to see that one of our favourite beauty therapists, Marissa Carter, has opened a new location in Blackrock. While her Dun Laoghaire salon is still the place to go for super-duper skin therapies (she's excellent at treating complaints like acne) in calm surroundings, the new venture is a true pamper palace with swish-looking pedi stations and nautical decor.
Fancy heading there yourself? During June, it's pretty damn Beaut.ienomical with three special offers on the table: Option one is the 'Nails in a hurry package' where €50 bags you an Express Manicure and Express Pedicure. Option two is the 'Sweet Essentials Package' which includes a manicure, pedicure, eyelash tint and brow shape, all for €99. Lastly - and this is the one you'll be bagging before yer holliers - is the €65 'Body Beautiful Package' which involves a full-body mango and papaya scrub and a full-body Vani-T Liquid Sun spray tan.
Not bad, eh? All offers are valid until June 30th and other terms 'n conditions apply - check in salon for details.
