Get that Sun Kissed Glow!

St Tropez spray tans available now at Ellipse! Get your for an amazing £20 while offer lasts.

St. Tropez formulations contain a unique combination of two completely safe active ingredients that work together to give a gorgeously natural looking colour that fades naturally, too. The first, dihydroxyacetone (or DHA for short) is a colourless sugar that interacts with the amino acids in the surface layer of the skin to produce a temporary colour change – your tan. This ingredient is combined with Erythrulose, a naturally moisturising ingredient derived from raspberries, that works in the same way as DHA but it develops more slowly, giving you a smoother colour that lasts longer and fades more evenly.

St Tropez works off your individual skin tone and body chemistry, giving you your own unique glow that is never orange, never streaky, always natural-looking and unique to you. The St Tropez formulas are designed to only go as dark as you could naturally get from the sun, any orange tinge is counteracted by a green pigment.

Love Aloe Vera

At Ellipse we want the best for your skin!

Our Aloe Vera is 99.8% pure so it’s the perfect aftersun this summer!

And only £5 per bottle!

Plus its a must for IPL clients aftercare.



Aloe vera has been used for a host of purposes since the ancient Egyptians called it the “plant of immortality.”  For thousands of years, people have used the gel from aloe vera leaves for healing and softening the skin.

Aloe Vera is a cactus plant that belongs to the Liliaceae family. It grows in dry climates such as those found in parts of Africa and India and has been used medicinally for centuries.

Aloe leaves secrete a clear gel that when broken off from the rest of the plant can be applied topically to heal wounds and soothe skin.

Various studies have been conducted to examine the benefits of the aloe vera plant and it was found out that aloe vera does in fact have several properties that are effective in treating a variety of skin conditions, from flaky or dry skin, cosmetic ailments, hair and scalp problems to many more.
Here are 5 benefits of using aloe vera gel:
1. It treats sunburn and is great after IPL treatments
Aloe Vera helps with sunburn through its powerful healing activity at the epithelial level of the skin, a layer of cells that cover the body. It acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps replenish its moisture. Because of its nutritional qualities and antioxidant properties, the skin heals quicker.
2. It acts as a moisturizer. 
Aloe moisturizes the skin without giving it a greasy feel, so it`s perfect for anyone with an oily skin complexion. For women who use mineral-based make-up, aloe vera acts as a moisturizer and is great for the face prior to the application to prevents skin drying. For men: Aloe vera gel can be used as an aftershave treatment as its healing properties can treat small cuts caused by shaving.
3. It treats acne. 
Aloe vera gel contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. Giberellin in aloe vera acts as a growth hormone stimulating the growth of new cells. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring.
Aloe is soothing and can reduce skin inflammations, blistering and itchiness, while helping the skin to heal more rapidly. Additionally, in Ayurvedic medicine, Aloe is used to effectively heal chronic skin problems, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema.
4. It fights aging. 
As we age, everyone begins to worry about the appearance of fine lines and the loss of elasticity in their skin. Aloe leaves contain a plethora of antioxidants including, beta carotene, vitamin C and E that can help improve the skin’s natural firmness and keep the skin hydrated.
5. It lessens the visibility of stretch marks. 
The skin is like one big piece of elastic that’ll expand and contract as needed to accommodate growth. But if the skin stretches too far, too fast (due to pregnancy, rapid weight gain or loss) the elasticity of the skin can be damaged. That’s what leaves those unsightly stretch marks. These marks appear due to minor tears in the layers of the skin caused by sudden and excessive stretching. Aloe vera gel can help hide these stretch marks by healing these wounds.

Venus – Redefining the New You!

Cara Delevingne loves using Venus Freeze facials to ‘halt’ the ageing process.

As well as boosting collagen long-term,  your skin will look clear, youthful and luminous.

What is Venus Swan™?

The Venus Swan™ is the “go-to” treatment for skin tightening as well as providing light contouring for the face, neck and body with no discomfort or down-time! Our Promise is to provide you with a safe, pleasant, and pain-free experience in treatments for the face and body including arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck and face.

How it Works

Venus Swan utilizes multi-polar radio frequency which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes the skin to contract, achieving tighter skin, softening of wrinkles and reduced cellulite.

What to Expect

Venus Swan treatments are non-invasive and painless, with many patients comparing the treatment to a hot-stone massage! Treatments take approximately 30-40mins depending on the area, you can expect to see results as the treatments progress, a minimum of 6 treatments for the face, 8 on the neck and 10 on the body.

Benefits of Hot Wax

Who’s tired of painful bikini waxing? or being left red raw and bruised after an underarm wax?

At Ellipse we use Harley Hot wax as a brilliant alternative to painful strip waxing (warm waxing) for all intimate and facial areas.

Unlike strip wax, hot wax is applied over a light covering of oil so it doesn’t adhere to the skin, only the hair! This means you get much less pull on the skin, eliminating the risk of bruising, or losing than sensitive top layer of skin!

Harley Hot Wax gives longer lasting, more thorough results with less skin irritation, and it’s much less painful! It’s even suitable for the most sensitive of skins thanks to it’s combination of calming ingredients, essential oils and titanium dioxide
