No More Peach Fuzz thanks to Skinfull Affairs!!!

service review

If you’re anything like me – ageing by the second, reminiscing on the prime of your beauty, worried about early menopause and so on and so fourth….then you probably feel somewhat anxious about your skin and unwanted body hair on summery days. It is a known fact that natural light can be unforgiving to skin flaws and those who live a secret life of plucking hairs from their chin – say no more.

Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way, because there is light at the end of the tunnel! Thanks to Skinfull Affairs, a beauty salon based in Dublin on 34 Exchequer Street, there is a timeless way to remove unwanted body hair while simultaneously boosting your body confidence: threading.

So what is threading according to Skinfull Affairs?

Threading is an ancient method of depilation and can remove even the finest hairs, leaving skin soft and smooth. This gentle form of hair removal is even suitable for the most sensitive skins. No chemicals or tools are used aside from an antibacterial thread that is twisted to pull the hair from the root.

  • It is chemical – free
  • The results are long lasting
  • It is very precise
  • It is quicker than waxing
  • It leaves a cleaner finish

My threading experience at Skinfull Affairs

I arrived at the lovely Skinfull Affairs about 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time and was greeted by a very welcoming staff member who had me fill in a form and offer me a glass a water. When she headed back to set up, I had the opportunity to browse the store and sample some of their body creams and lotions.

When the time came for me to start my treatment, I was pretty nervous. Thankfully, the woman looking after me calmed down my nerves with her words of encouragement. The second she started the treatment, I wanted to scream. I found the first few minutes of threading to be pretty sore as a first timer but I did take a few breaks during the treatment so it was all very bearable.

The most painful area was my eyebrows and the least painful area was my chin – it must be used to all the pain from plucking! Overall, the pain was not overwhelming bad, and I have certainly endured worse!

The Results

Before Threading

After threading

The results were impeccable, I had never seen my face so smooth before. The redness caused by the threading  didn’t last very long which was surprising to me since my skin is very sensitive. I looked and felt young and fresh again! 🙂


A skin-calming product for after threading

I was told not to use any saunas or steam rooms, no swimming or makeup for 24 hours. Avoiding the steam room was hard, but it was worth it after!

How often do you need to get it done?

Eyebrows after threading

I am four weeks into the treatment and I don’t seem to need a top up just yet. The amount of treatments a person needs depends on their hair growth of course and everybody is different – some need threading done every month, while the results for others can last for up to eight weeks!

Would I recommend it?

All smiles here! 

I would 100% recommend it to those who use waxing or other chemicals to remove hair since threading os natural. The staff in Skinfull Affairs were lovely and very informative, they were incredibly patient with me also.

Passion fruit skin peel at Therapie Clinic

Acne/ service review
Therapie Clinic Molesworth Street Dublin

Therapie Skin Clinic Molesworth Street Dublin

If you follow my Instagram story, then you would know that I recently got a facial at Therapie Clinic on Molesworth Street in Dublin. Prior to getting my treatment done, I went in for a consultation with Sarah to talk about my skin concerns and problematic areas I was hoping to improve.

The Consultation

She introduced herself to me at the waiting area and kindly asked me to fill in an assessment form where I shared the details of my hormonal acne and hyperpigmentation. Much like anyone with problematic skin, I would normally feel a bit self conscious about going in to these places to have them essentially judge a part of me. But I never felt so reassured after my chat with Sarah.

She put me so much at ease and made me feel that things would get better, even with the type of acne I have. I felt absolutely no judgement from her at all and after having been to Therapie a couple of times, I think it is safe to say that Sarah is probably the warmest person I have met there.

I could go on about how much I felt comforted by Sarah, but unfortunately this blog is not about her. So let’s move on to the treatment that was recommended on the day, shall we? 🙂

The Treatment

Ordemic Enzyme Peel at Therapie Clinic Molesworth Street Dublin

Ordemic Enzyme Peel

Due to my skin concerns – namely hyperpigmentation and hormonal acne, we opted for an ordemic enzyme peel which contains passion fruit enzymes and peptides. This mini-peel isn’t as abrasive as other treatments and that’s why she thought it would be best for my skin.

  1. To kick things off, she did a salicylic acid cleanse. Salicylic acid is great for helping to clear out the pores as it is one of the few acids that goes deep into the pores to help clean any dead skin and excess oil.
  2. Next, an Iluma Exfoliating Powder was used to help remove any surface dead skin before putting on the peel.
  3. After removing this with a damp cotton pad, the ordemic enzyme peel was applied. This passion fruit and peptide solution helps breakdown the upper layer of dead skin to bring loads of new fresh healthy skin to the surface.
  4. The steamer was turned on ahead of applying any products to my skin which opened my pores throughout the facial and allowed for as much extraction as possible.
  5. She then applied the Vital C Hydrating Enzyme Mask which helps to exfoliate, moisturise and create a healthy glow.
  6. To finish off, the Iluma Intense Lightening Serum was applied to help with discolouration of the skin.

The treatment lasted for about an hour overall and is recommended to do one of these facials every four weeks in order to maintain the results of this treatment. However, I did see instant results.

The Result

My skin appeared brighter and luminous – a healthy glow as opposed to the greasy look that oily skinned people are prone to! The following day I did see a bit of a break out of white heads, which is common after a peel, if doing extractions. My cystic acne however did flatten out so I was happy to see that.

I cannot thank Sarah enough for how calming she made this experience for me. After her thorough explanation of the treatment and all the advice given to me by the staff at Therapie, I feel I will be more dedicated to getting more facials done.

We believe in absolute commitment to customer service, and offer free consultations for all our treatments. Our friendly, professional staff is happy to help; we regularly run special offers on treatments; courses and products
