Cancer Wellness at The Ice House Ballina

In 2013, as many of you know, I was diagnosed with cancer. It isn’t something I mention all that often on the blog. The Beautiful Truth was started as a distraction from being sick. My blog has always been my escape. My cancer free space. It was and still is my place to talk about stuff that is frivolous and a bit of fun.  Yet, when the Ice House in Ballina contacted me to review their cancer wellness centre, my interest was pipped. This was something I could talk about on the blog and hopefully help someone! When you’ve cancer, it is a time in your life that your energy levels…

Reflexology at Bella and Me Maynooth

You always know that a treatment is good, when you wake yourself up with your own snoring!! That is exactly what happened to me when I went for reflexology in Bella and Me Beauty salon Maynooth. Thankfully, I was only asleep for a handful of minutes because I really was quite blown away with the reflexology treatment. When I was invited into Bella and Me for a session of reflexology, I really had no idea what I was letting myself in for. I knew that reflexology had something to do with the feet but after that, I was completely at sea about what I should expect. Basically reflexology is a treatment where…

Babymoon in Galway with The Beauty Quarters

It is such a treat to escape from Dublin for a short break and if you follow me on snapchat (@thebeauttruth) you will have seen that I recently was given a chance to have a little babymoon down in Galway with a pamper session in The Beauty Quarters in Oranmore and to say it was exactly what I needed would be an understatement. Previously, if you had’ve mentioned the word babymoon to me, I would’ve laughed at such a preposterous idea. A babymoon! What sort of new aged fandangled stuff was this now? It is very far from a babymoons we were raised.  However, after the time I spent in Galway on…

Tailored skincare with Jeanne Brophy

Since starting the blog, I have lost count of the amount of skin care products I have tried out. Some I have loved and some I have absolutely hated ( Im looking at you Glam Glow). In recent months, I really feel that I have gotten my skin care routine right and my skin is in better condition than it has been in a very long time. In saying that, you will have heard me say time and time again, that no matter how good my skin feels on any one day, it can change and become a nightmare over night. I always felt that this is down to in…

The nervous waxer at Brazilia

Waxing is one of those things most people do, but rarely talk about. I am personally not a waxer, i can count on one hand the amount I’ve had due to the fact I have the most pathetic pain threshold. Add to that, the fact that a few years back I had the most horrendous waxing experience imaginable and you will understand why I tend to be an at home kinda girl. A few years back, I took a notion to start waxing. I bought a Group On voucher and was proud as punch heading off to visit the salon to cash my voucher in. It was not a pleasant experience to…

Banish ugly feet with Simon & Tom’s Callus removing gel

It is a rare occasion that you will catch me blogging about feet, but the Simon & Tom Callus removing gel is something that needed to be shared. This Callus removing gel is an at home pedicure kit, which is said to remove the hard skin and callus from your feet, while at the same the nourishing and hydrating them. So does it actually work? Many of you will know that I am personally not a fan of feet at all and I even sometimes find it hard doing my own toe nails. So when this popped through my door, I was a little nervous to give it a try and it sat…

Six Month clear braces at My Dental

  If you follow The Beautiful Truth on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you may have noticed I’ve gotten a ixet of braces on my nashers. I have finally taken the plunge to get my teeth sorted just in time for my walk up the aisle in July. For the last few years I’ve toyed around with the idea of getting braces, as I didn’t want to be paranoid about how my teeth looked in my wedding photos. It is a rare occasion that you will catch me smiling in a picture and the last thing I wanted was to have a pout in my wedding pictures. The Bridal duck face…

The Dawson Spa

Since returning to work at the beginning of September, my life has been hectic to say the least. It seems like I am constantly chasing my tail and running from one appointment to the next. Thankfully, I am enjoying everything I am doing, but it is very rare that I take a moment to myself and relax. When offered the chance to review one of The Dawson Spa’s new treatments for the up coming Christmas season, I jumped at the chance. This was exactly what I needed. The Dawson Spa is located, in the Dawson hotel on Dawson Street. The Spa itself is located on the top floors of the…

CACI Non Surgical Facelift at Cedars Beauty Clinic

Who wants to grow old gracefully? I ask myself that question quite regularly. Do I want to be the someone who lets it all go in the direction nature intends it? Or do I want to be someone, that pushes back on natures steady advances? Recently while out in Cedars Beauty Clinic in Dundrum, getting the IBX treatment on my nails, myself and Suzanne, the salon owner, were discussing this very thing. Suzanne asked me had I ever tried the CACI non surgical Facelift?It was something I had never heard of, but seriously a non surgical Facelift !!! My interest levels were seriously high. For a very long time CACI…

Volume Eyelash extensions

  For a very long time I have lusted after long, fluttery, full lashes. I always thought they would cost an arm and a leg, so never really looked into it. For years I have been wearing strip lashes, but it had gotten to the point that they were beginning to damage my natural lashes. I began to research different types of lashes and decided that while the Mink and silk lashes looked amazing, I would start with the more understated, but seriously glam volume lashes.   I was nervous about getting lashes applied, as I didn’t want to damage my natural lash. I took to  twitter to do some research  and…

Whitening at the Square

Whitening at the Square Tallaght I am a nervous wreck writing this post. The thoughts of flashing my nashers online has my nerves absolutely rattled. My teeth are the absolute bain of my life. They are a great source of embarrassment and something you will rarely catch me flashing. My problems with my teeth began when I was in 4th class. A friend and I decided to go play “golf” in the local park. To spice up our afternoon we decided to have a competition to see who could hit the ball through the railings that surrounded  the park. This little Einstein decided to stand on the other side of…

Best of Beauty Blog Challenge “Beauty Treatments”

I actually can’t believe this is the second last week of The Best of Beauty bog Challenge. Although I have missed one or two, I have really enjoyed taking part. This weeks topic is the best of Beauty Treatments and as you know I am a big fan of getting pampered. Regular readers of the blog will know how I have a penchant for treating my self to treatments in the beauticians. Earlier in the week I blogged about the most gorgeous facial in Iconic Beauty, Rathgar and previously in one of the other weeks of the challenge, I blogged about my fortnightly visit  to my local beauticians, Top To…
