Where to get nails done in Auckland and other questions

This post will likely only be useful for those of you who live in Auckland, but maybe some of you will be visiting in the future, so it could come in handy.

Off wax and laser - Lena Talks Beauty

My Laser Hair Removal Experience

A year ago I wrote a post about my experience having IPL (intense pulsed light) hair removal treatments, and it feels like time for an update about how it’s going. I had been having treatments on my underarms for nearly 3 years, and to be honest, I was fed up. My hairs were much softer and lighter…but they were mostly still there which is not what I wanted. I had raised my frustration with the clinic a few times and they did do their best for me, but it just wasn’t quite good enough. Then one day I saw on facebook that Off Wax, a waxing bar that I used to go to before I started to get IPL/and still sometimes get my brows done at, is now Off Wax and Laser. I went for a consultation there, and embarked on my first laser hair removal session! In this post I’ll explain the difference between IPL and laser hair removal, and write about my experience getting laser hair removal.
