Why We Love OPI For Nails

OPI nail polish has stood the test of time; founded in 1981, the company has gone on to produce some of the world’s most-loved nail colours and salon professional products. That’s one of the reasons why we only use OPI products for hand and footcare appointments at The Treatment Room. But it’s not the only reason.

In fact, we’re such huge fans of OPI that we thought we’d share with you why we love the brand so much.

Gel Colour is so long-lasting

How annoying is it to paint your nails, only for the colour to chip a day or two later? Very! By using OPI Gel Colour for our nail treatments, we know that your colour will last for up to three weeks. With a wide selection of gel colours, they are ideal for those who love perfectly manicured nails all-year round. Plus, Gel Colour protects your nails, can prevent breaks and won’t damage them. What’s not to love?!

It shines bright like a diamond

So shiny in fact that OPI Gel Colour and Infinite Shine have been proven to outshine other gels by 23% after two weeks!
Huge colour selection
Whatever colour you fancy on the day of your appointment, the chances are that OPI will have it. With new collections popping up regularly (they make 55 million bottles every single year), OPI is not shy about introducing bold, exciting colours for every season.

Toxic-free zone

At The Treatment Room we want you to have the healthiest nails possible. That means the products we use must be free from nasty toxins. So we’re pleased to report that OPI’s polishes are free from highly toxic ingredients such as DBP (dibutyl phthalate) and Toluene, ensuring all treatments are safe.

Awesome nail care

OPI knows it has a reputation to uphold and it doesn’t take that responsibility lightly. Like us, they want to care for your nails. That’s why we loved the introduction of their Gel Break treatment. If you want to take a break from gel manicures, but the thought of going completely bare leaves you cold, then revive your nails with OPI’s Gel Break in-between gel manicure treatment. Enriched with essential vitamins and minerals, the treatment will help to restore your nails while keeping them tidy and polished.

Always changing

OPI is always bringing new colours to the market to experiment with; at any one time there are about 160 colour shades available, with OPI taking some off the market every year to
make way for new shades. We love their innovation and the fact that they don’t rest on their laurels.
With so many new nail companies coming onto the market, it’s testament to OPI that they remain one of the most popular brands after 36 years. At The Treatment Room we’re fully trained in OPI techniques and deliver a high quality service to clients looking for long-lasting nail care.

The Importance Of Keeping Your Skin Hydrated

The changing of the seasons can seriously affect your skin – and not in a good way. Whether it’s the office air conditioning on full blast or somebody cranking up the thermostat at home, it can be difficult to keep skin hydrated day-to-day. But as we get older, collagen production starts to decrease, which means it’s more important than ever to keep skin hydrated.

So, what can you do to ensure your skin stays plump, bright and beautiful? Here’s how to give your skin a well-deserved drink…
Nourish from the inside out – drink water!

How many times have you heard this? But it’s still so true. Your body is made up of 70% water and keeping it hydrated throughout the day will ensure you stay healthy. If you aren’t drinking enough water, your skin is likely to be dehydrated, leading to a dull and uneven complexion. Up your water intake to at least two litres a day and you’ll soon notice a difference to both your skin and body.

Update your skincare routine
Don’t be afraid to update your regime as the seasons change. In colder months, your skin needs a heavier moisturiser to protect it from the elements, compared with those warmer months. So go lighter in spring and summer. Use quality products, such as Environ Skincare, which offers great results for the skin when used regularly.
Revamp your skincare routine with Environ’s C-Quence Hydrating Serum. Its combination of vitamins support and maintain a healthy, youthful appearance and promote firmer, softer skin. If you’d like to give it a try, throughout April we are giving customers 20% off this serum when purchased from The Treatment Room.

Turn down the heat

We all love a hot shower, or a long soak in the bath, but that heat is sapping your skin of its vital hydration. Long baths and showers can strip essential oils from the surface, leading to dry and flaky skin. So keep temperatures warm and take shorter baths to ensure greater hydration levels. And don’t forget to slather on moisturiser (both face and body) afterwards!

Lock in moisture with a treatment

Give your skin a moisture boost with a facial or skincare treatment. While they are often seen as a treat, we believe they are key to ensuring your skin stays as healthy as possible. Pollution, dirt and dead skin are facts of life on the face and while our daily routine does a job, it’s sometimes not enough. And that’s where facials come in.

Our trained professionals will assess your skin’s needs and getting a facial on a regular basis will do wonders for the overall health of your skin. Our vitamin-packed treatments are suitable for all skin types and our salon staff will be happy to answer any skincare questions you might have at your appointment.

Don’t Miss This…

Fancy having a facial at The Treatment Room? Throughout April, we are offering the Hydraboost Treatment for £70, that’s £20 less than the usual price. This 90-minute intensive treatment hydrates while plumping and firming your skin. If you are struggling with skin dehydration, this is the treatment for you; it helps to reduce fine lines and leaves you with glowing skin.

Your Guide To Intimate Waxing


 If you’re new to intimate waxing, you might find the different wax styles confusing – and you probably have some questions. Well, we’re here to put a stop to that confusion. We’ve put together a clear, easy-to-follow guide to intimate waxing to answer your questions.

So, when you book an appointment with us for an intimate wax, you’ll know exactly what to ask for and what to expect.

What is an ‘intimate’ wax?

Intimate waxing is a popular treatment for women looking to shape or groom their pubic hair. This hair is removed from the intimate region and you can choose your style, from bikini shape to complete hair removal.

What wax styles are available?

If you’re new to intimate waxing, the choices available can be a little bewildering. Below are the styles we offer at The Treatment Room, and an explanation of the results you can expect after the wax.

Bikini Wax

This is a traditional intimate wax and involves a basic shaping of the hair into an upside-down triangle shape to the edge of your underwear. The area round to the bottom is not waxed.

Brazilian Wax

A very popular intimate wax, the Brazilian removes all the hair from the bikini line, leaving a small strip on the front. Hair is removed completely from the front, all the way round to the bottom area.

Hollywood Wax

Another popular intimate wax, the Hollywood involves complete hair removal; from the front, round to the bottom area.

What type of wax do you use?

At The Treatment Room, we’re proud to use WaxU, the UK’s first express intimate wax. The wax formula, combined with WaxU’s intimate wax technique, gives you super-smooth results that will see you return to The Treatment Room again and again.

We’re hugely excited to be the first salon in Guernsey to offer the WaxU and as our team is fully trained in using WaxU’s revolutionary techniques.

Is intimate waxing painful?

Pain thresholds vary from person-to-person, but at The Treatment Room we believe in doing things the right way, using only the best products and techniques. WaxU is designed to grip the hair, rather than the skin, which will minimise any discomfort. If you are new to intimate waxing, you are venturing into the unknown, so you might experience a shock, but it does get easier with every treatment, as hair tends to become finer.

Consider this: our clients return for intimate waxes time and time again, so the pain can’t be too bad, can it?

Embarrassed about intimate waxing?

Don’t be, we’ve seen it all before. And it’s our job; we’re here to give you results, without the blushes. Our therapist is highly-trained and exceptionally professional, so she’ll do everything she can to lessen your embarrassment. If you’re unsure of which style you’d like at your appointment, just ask your therapist; she’ll be more than happy to guide you on the options available.

This is my first intimate wax. What should I expect?

Waxing treatments can be a daunting experience, especially when it comes to intimate waxing. But don’t worry, our friendly salon professional will be happy to talk you through the process before treatment begins. Once in the treatment room, you will only need to expose the area that is being waxed. Intimate waxing treatments take between 15 minutes (for bikini) to 30 minutes (for Brazilian or Hollywood).

How often do I need intimate waxing?

Timing can vary per person, but we usually recommend every 4-6 weeks. This regular waxing will encourage hair to grow back thinner, as the hair follicle has less grip on the hair. If you’re unsure when you should return, just ask your therapist at the end of the appointment, or call us on 07781 158477 for further details.

How much does it cost?

Take a look at The Treatment Room’s intimate waxing price list below:

* Bikini Wax: £12.00
* Brazilian Wax: £25.00
* Hollywood Wax: £28.00

Waxing is an incredibly popular treatment. If you are considering intimate waxing but have further questions, simply give The Treatment Room a call on 07781 158477 or email and we’ll be happy to help.
