Eve Taylor OBE started her career in the beauty industry as a beauty therapist and quickly became fascinated by a treatment that was originally created thousands of years ago by ancient therapists in both China & Egypt called Aromatherapy. The use of pure essential oils fascinated Eve Taylor. So after years of study, practice and experience she decided to develop her own range of pre-blended aromatherapy oils along with specific treatment methods and techniques. Eve’s aromatherapy techniques (Clinical Aromatherapy) have been adopted by many as the original industry standard for professional aromatherapy and are currently taught extensively throughout the world.
Her original aromatherapy blends still provide both professional therapists and their clients’ with outstanding results keeping demand high around the globe. Aromatherapy is the practical use of pure essential oils. Essential oils have both an aromatic benefit from the plant but the oils also have such fantastic therapeutic properties that nature has given us to create some truly amazing products.
Apart from a great aroma and amazing sensory triggers, essential oils also have the ability to help restore balance. Essential oils can come from many parts of plants such as roots, bark, flowers or seeds. Each essential oil has multiple properties, each has the ability to HYDRATE, DETOXINATE and OXYGENATE the skin, as a result essential oils are great to use and formulate into both skin and body care.
More from Eve Taylor…
'We thoroughly research our formulations as all of our products are developed specifically with a view to use by the professional beauty therapist who can then recommend with confidence - the correct products to be used by their client for homecare use. In the last 50 years we have never tested any of our products on animals – we only test our products on people and after 50 years we have proven that our products work and deliver the results. Our products are formulated to balance with the correct pH of the skin.
All of our products are all Paraben free. We do not use ingredients such as artificial colours or fragrances and well as other known irritants which can sensitize the skin, including alcohols, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, or phthalates alongside other ingredients that can be comodegenic (pore blocking). Our products contain active ingredients that are beyond cosmetic, they work deeper than the upper layer of skin giving highly effective results.
Our skincare is both used and sold by trained qualified therapists worldwide who will analyse the skin first and only prescribe products suitable for the skin type and current condition. As we change our skin changes so choosing and using the correct products is vital to maintaining great skin and achieving great results.
We use tamper evident packaging as much as possible, alongside contamination free packaging. All of our packaging can also be recycled after use. Our products are manufactured in small batches so that the active ingredients can be included to ensure purity and freshness in every batch, without the products sitting in the warehouse for months before we sell them. We are also proud that every product holds the Eve Taylor signature - as this is your guarantee that the products you have purchased are some of the best products in the world.'
(Eve Taylors products are also almost all vegan friendly, with a few exceptions due to the use of honey and beeswax, please call us with any questions on products if this is of any concern)

What is microdermabrasion?
The SkinBase™ Facial microdermabrasion treatment uses a stream of non-allergenic crystals to remove your skins outermost layers of dead cells. Your therapist will use the handset to direct the stream of crystal over the treatment area and, where necessary, target specific zones. The handset then uses a mild suction to draw away the crystal and skin debris to reveal your new and improved complexion.
The SkinBase™ Facial is chemical free, non-invasive yet achieves amazing results revealing younger, healthier looking skin from the very first treatment. The skins appearance is further improved through increased collagen & elastin production as your body produces a new layer of skin.
A safe, controlled salon treatment that results in great looking skin
The SkinBase™ Microdermabrasion Facial is a progressive rather than aggressive treatment, during which you’ll feel completely relaxed and pampered with no discomfort from the facial.
How does microdermabrasion work?
Over the course of your facial treatments a wand delivering a fine jet of abrasive crystals will be passed over the skin. Dead skin particles will be abraded away and a vacuum action will remove the debris. This dual action will both resurface the skin and stimulate the blood flow, encouraging the skin to rejuvenate itself and produce collagen and elastin. With each of your subsequent SkinBase™ treatments, the intensity of the facial microdermabrasion can be increased – reaching to deeper layers and successfully removing acne scarring, lifting pigmentation and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
The Benefits of Microdermabrasion
A course of microdermabrasion can be used to give your skin a healthy glow or to target more specific requirements such as fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, sun damage & acne. Post treatment your skin continues to improve due to increased collagen & elastin production.
As a non-surgical method of skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion is quick, convenient and painless, immediately restoring younger, smoother looking skin without the need for chemicals, lasers or Botox.
A single SkinBase™ treatment can remove up to three times the number of dead skin cells in a single session than other exfoliating treatments.
Zero Recovery Time
Unlike many skin rejuvenation treatments, microdermabrasion is non-invasive, so requires zero recovery time. It is often referred to as the ‘lunchtime facial’ because of the convenience and effectiveness.
Flexible to Suit Individual Skin Types
The treatment settings are widely adjustable; meaning therapists are able to tailor the treatment to individual skin types and problems.
Better Skin for Longer
Microdermabrasion encourages cell renewal, which means your skin will benefit from improved elasticity, a smoother texture and reduced signs of ageing.
Everyone Can Benefit!
Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types, and therapists will assess your skin before advising on the number of treatments you will need.
Specific Skin Problems that Benefit from Microdermabrasion
Acne & Acne Scarring
Dull & Tired Skin
Fine Lines & Forehead Wrinkles
Uneven Skin Tone, Brown Spots & Blotches
Pigmentation & Skin Blemishes
Our waxing therapists at Nothing But Nails & Beauty have been specifically trained in all areas of waxing using two of the most prestigious waxing brands available. This allows us to carry out full body waxing including intimate waxes such as the Hollywood & the Brazillian, both safely and competently with the most up to date techniques.
Our waxing treatments our carried out using only the best products as always. We use non-strip wax for more sensitive areas such as the bikini, as it is cooler in temperature and does not attach to the skin. Strip wax is great for finer hairs such as legs.
Aside from the treatment itself there are 2 main things that our clients comment on, one being the cleanliness of our room, no dirty wax pots, flicks of wax, bins full of used wax or double-dipping going on here ! The room is thoroughly cleaned and inspected between each client. The other being how friendly our therapists are and how you very quickly feel at ease with us, no matter what waxing treatment you have booked in for.
Pre & Post Care
For the best results and most comfortable treatment we have a few tips for you follow before and after your waxing service.
Before your appointment
For a first time wax we need a minimum of 2-3 weeks hair growth from last shaving/hair removal cream/trimming. Your hair should be about the length of a grain of rice, much shorter and we will struggle to pick up all the hairs, much longer and it can be more uncomfortable and cause the odd hair to snap, resulting in ingrown hairs. Exfoliate your skin 24hrs before your appointment, to release any hairs just under the top layer of skin, so we can give you a super smooth finish!
After your appointment
Avoid tight fitting underwear/clothing for the rest of the day, heavy exercise and prolonged exposure to the sun if you’ve had facial waxing. Try not to keep touching the area, your hair follicles are left open for around 24hrs so we don’t want any bacteria getting near and causing little spots.
After 2-3 days you can begin to exfoliate 2-3 times a week and apply an oil free moisturiser every day from day 1, this helps to prevent ingrown hairs. We have a range of aftercare products such as exfoliator, exfoliating mitts, oil free moisturiser, ingrown hair serum and anti-regrowth products. We can explain what may be beneficial to you at your appointment and how/when to use them.
Lastly…..in the unlikely event that you have any irritability after your appointment please feel free to give us a call and ask to speak to your therapist with any concerns. She will be happy to have a chat with you and see if we can figure out what’s going on, and how to solve it.
Lash Lift & Tint
The natural alternative to eyelash extensions. You are given the illusion of longer, thicker lashes as your natural lashes are set from straight forward or downward facing, to curved upwards opening your eyes up, giving a natural looking definition and the tint ensures your lashes are visible all the way to the tip. This treatment takes around an hour to complete and lasts for 6-8 weeks, with no costly, time consuming maintenance appointments it’s the perfect choice for the busy ladies of today *
Knot free clusters of lashes are applied over your natural lashes giving you beautiful full, long lashes in approximately 30mins. Perfect for the weekend, or a short break they are designed to last anywhere from a couple of days up to a week, the better you care for them, the longer they will last. We recommend these lashes are removed after 7 days to prevent any damage and a free removal appointment is included in the price of application. *
The most simple treatment to give your lashes a boost, tinting is perfect for holidays, no mascara needed in the pool.*
* 48 hour patch test required for these treatments.
For our make-up services we offer traditional manual make-up application, using mainly the world leading professional make-up authority M·A·C. Alongside some handpicked, well known high street brands such as Urban Decay.
We also offer airbrush make-up using the brand loved by many celebrity MUA’S for tv and photoshoot work, Airbase.
M·A·C celebrates diversity and individuality, their ranges cater for all ages, all races, all sexes and M·A·C is at the forefront of fashion trendsetting, collaborating with leading talents from fashion, art and popular culture. It is regularly used backstage at fashion weeks around the world.
Airbase combines a unique mix of ingredients with silicone at the heart of its formulation. Feeling beautiful and luxurious on the skin, the silicone chosen does not clog your pores. It is this that helps give Airbase Make-Up unrivalled durability. Silicone is heat-resistant, non-stick and pliable. That means that your Airbase Make-Up application lasts all day!
When you spray using an airbrush it atomises the product making the particles of make-up tiny. This is why airbrush make-up is used in HD TV and film. The particles in the make-up become much smaller than when it is conventionally applied and therefore less visible. HD TV picks up absolutely every imperfection!
Make-up artists who work with TV productions like, Loose Women, This Morning, Dancing On Ice, Strictly Come Dancing and X Factor all praise Airbase for its staying power and durability. Not forgetting that ITV and SKY are now regular users of the Airbase Make-Up product too.
Whether you choose to book traditional make-up application or airbrushing, we have everything available to suit all skin types and skin colours. We want to give you the look YOU want, you can go bold, bright, glittery, super long lashes, highlight & contour, or you can go as soft and natural as you like. You guide us, if you are not sure of what you like and want to give us free reign we’ll use our training and experience along with your skin tone, outfit for the evening and the occasion, to come up something to make you feel confident and fabulous !
