Western Sydneyites, a top-notch pamper is right in your backyard.
Why would you travel all the way to the city – becoming tense in traffic and with thoughts of running late – to get a relaxing massage, only to tense back up on the way home?
Introducing Natural Beauty Bar. Owned and run by local beauty therapist Jaymi Caldwell, this hidden gem in Penrith’s industrial area has been alive and kicking for more than two years.
The product smells divine – scents of mango and coconut fill the air.
Clients rave about Jaymi being the ‘Queen of the Brows’, but she offers so much more than just waxing. There are spray tans, manis, pedis and facials – and how could anybody resist one of the new treatments: a Pure Fiji Tropical Body Scrub (to remove dead skin cells for skin that’s as smooth as silk), finished with a popular Tension-Relief Back Massage.
The salon is warm and welcoming, thanks to its neutral colour scheme and natural sunlight shining through the second-level floor-to-ceiling windows. However, walking into one of the beautifully adorned treatment rooms, the tranquil scene is set with dimmed lighting.
The process begins with a refreshing foot soak, then it’s onto the massage table for a whole-body scrub. The product smells divine – scents of mango and coconut fill the air. Afterwards, it’s time to wash it all off in a shower by candlelight. It’s evident that something amazing has happened to your skin, thanks to the coconut oil in the scrub.
“Coconut oil-based scrubs are my favourite because the oil can’t actually dissolve in water, which means it will stay on the skin all day, acting like a barrier to harsh environmental damage,” says Jaymi.
Amazed and almost completely relaxed, it’s time for the massage, which is where you’ll really get to see Jaymi’s secret talent. Don’t be put off by her small frame; she was able to hit “medium to firm” pressure on the head. And speaking of heads, don’t you love when these treatments include a scalp massage? Well this one does. And it’s amazing.
This is going to be a big statement, but as far as this reviewer’s concerned, you won’t get a better massage anywhere else in Sydney. If you’re not a believer, see for yourself – and why not get those brows done while you’re at it!
