A Beautiful You: Beauty, Cosmetic & Personal Care

The Ballito MagazineAugust 8, 2023

We recently indulged in an afternoon of pampering at Bella La Lupa in the New Salt Rock Shopping Centre. This quaint beauty studio welcomes you into a tranquil space where you can get everything from a facial to a massage or gorgeous nails.


We were greeted by one of the owners, Anke, before being taken to start our treatments. To add a bit of bubble to your experience, I was served a glass of champagne to sip on while marvelling at the cute wall with champagne bottles and as a lovely personal touch a little sign on the table welcoming me as Queen Kai.


For my nails, the wonderful Lungi spoilt me with shiny pink acrylic to match my personality, while Natasha was in good hands with Linda for a full body massage. Thereafter, Chard then gave her stunning Powder Brows. Their results have the most realistic and natural-looking outcome. Especially if you prefer a more defined brow, Powder Brows are your best bet! An ultra-fine tattoo needle and a Permanent Makeup (PMU) Device is used to deliver pigment to the skin. It is a semi-permanent makeup technique. Don’t worry! Your eyebrows are numbed with numbing cream beforehand.


After getting my nails done, Chardi began to prepare me for a 60-minute Bio Active Rejuvenating Facial, ideal for environmentally damaged, hyper-pigmented, problematic and interactive skin classifications. It is a potent yet gentle, active treatment that delivers superior results, reducing pore size and achieving more refined texture, increased elasticity, radiance and vitality.


It was a relaxing hour, laying on a cloud-like mattress that I just sank into. I almost fell asleep.


This time of year can get incredibly busy, so don’t forget to pamper yourself! Maybe this is your sign to treat yourself to something special at Bella La Lupa!
