Pre-travel beauty treatments – at home Vs the salon

We all have our own beauty regimes when it comes to the run up to our holiday. From making sure we have silky smooth legs, to plying our fingers and toes with nail polish; there’s just something about being on our jolly’s that makes us want to look our best.

But it comes at a price… salon treatments can be pretty costly, especially if you want to keep up treatments. But did you know, there are now a whole host of at-home beauty gadgets set to revolutionise the way we look after our appearance? Take a look at what you could be saving…


Elegant_Touch_Lux_Gel_Polish___Starter_Kit_1426867726Having bright, shiny nails on holiday seems like a must for most women, but let’s face it, normal nail polish isn’t going to last the entire time you’re away. The only way to keep your nails perfect for the whole duration of your stay is paying to get gel nails professionally done at the salon, right? Wrong!

Elegant Touch Gel Nail Kit is the at home alternative to the usual salon treatment. Although costing more than one trip to the salon, the starter kit will do roughly 15 manicures, and then you just need to buy some extra colours – much more cost effective!

Average gel manicure at a salon: £25

Elegant Touch Gel Nail Kit: £69.95

Leg wax:

For a lot of women, smooth legs are a fairytale; like fairies, pixies and actually using your gym membership.

If you’re one of those annoyingly lucky people who only need to shave their legs every 2nd full moon, then this device may not be for you. If, however, like the majority of people you’re sick of the frequent and expensive trips to the salon, look no further than the iluminage Beauty TOUCH.

Offering you clinically proven results of permanent hair removal, you can now say goodbye to painful leg waxing and hello to long-lasting, sliky smooth legs.

The device works on a wide range of hair colours and skin colour, so no matter what your complexion, it’s an investment that could save you some serious cash in the long run.

Salon price (monthly full leg wax) – £240 a year

Iluminage hair removal device – £375 for unlimited sessions

Caci Treatments:

Wearing no make-up during the day on holiday (because why would you?) may draw attention to those inevitable lines that come with age; so if you feel like firming up around the face and neck, the CACI Microlift facial toning system can lend a helping hand.

Caci Treatments in a salon (10 needed to see results): £400

Caci Microlift: £349
