ELM Beauty Salon Review


Elm Beauty Salon is a unique and is an experience of absolute luxury.

Elm is nestled in behind Morrissey’s pharmacy in Tullow, Co. Carlow and opened its doors last December. I was invited to have a look around by owner, Liz Morrissey. The first thing you notice when you walk into Elm is the décor, it is a luxurious salon and it is finished to the highest standards.

I was treated to a facial. Elm uses the brand DECLÉOR, which was the first brand to introduce aromatherapy to cosmetics in 1977.  Decleor is as luxurious as it gets when it comes to facials. It is based on aromatherapy and the French brand takes pride in its holistic approach to beauty. I have previously worked with Decleor so I knew that I was in for a real treat.

Laura started with a 15 minute back massage that really relaxed me for my facial. She then cleansed, toned and exfoliated my skin to remove the dead skin cells to allow for the active

ingredients to work better. My favourite part of the facial was the face massage using a personalised aromesssence oil that suited my skin type. Laura then applied a mask to hydrate and nourish my skin. The mask was removed with hot towels before toned and suitable eye products and moisturisers were applied to my skin. The facial was a completely relaxing experience which allowed me to escape and unwind.

I have always wanted to try teeth whitening so when I heard that the treatment only takes 15 minutes and is pain free and contains no peroxide I couldn’t resist giving it a try. Elm has the Ultra Smile Express teeth whitening system which costs €60 for one treatment. The treatment was pain free with no sensitivity and I definitely did notice a difference. It would be great for a special occasion. I have had it done for a month now and I can still see the benefits. It is not a long term fix but it is reasonably priced and I would definitely get it again if I needed to for a special occasion in the future.
