IPL FAQs

Is the machine painful?

Our IPL Handsets are completely pain free which means you can achieve hair free skin without the oo’s and aahs!

Can this be used for people who have PCOS?

Absolutely. We understand that overgrowth of hair and in some cases Hirsutism is common in ladies with PCOS and this is the perfect tool to help you rid yourself of all that unwanted hair. 

What pigment does the hair have to be for the machine to be effective?

Because IPL relies on melanin in the strands it is not very effective on blonde or grey coloured hair. It works best on black, brown and dark shades of blonde.

Is there a Warranty on the machines?

Yes, our machines come with a 12 month warranty.

Which part of the body can our handsets be used on?

Our IPL handsets are perfect for ANY PART OF THE BODY! This includes your bikini and face!

Is there anything to use before and after?

We suggest using a gentle exfoliant before shaving, this removes dead skin and helps the light from the machine to penetrate the pore well. We will be offering our own exfoliant and post IPL mist soon.

What is the difference between this handset and clinic laser?

Our handsets utilise clinical grade technology which has been tested as safe enough for home use. Because you are using the machine once a week, you would definitely achieve the same results, if not better, over a shorter period of time. Also home handsets make your sessions convenient, without the crazy costs you would pay at a clinic.

How often do I need to use it?

Once a week for the first 12 weeks, thereafter once every few months to touch up where needed! 

How long do our handsets last?

Our devices will give you 300,000 flashes, lasting you ten years.

How does IPL work?

Light energy from IPL is absorbed by the melanin in the hair, which creates and turns to heat, eventually destroying the hair cells.

Alya Skin FAQs

How often do I use Alya Skin products?

We recommend using the Pomegranate Facial Exfoliator and Pink Clay Mask 3-4 times per week for best results. If you have sensitive skin we recommend using these products twice a week. The Pomegranate Facial Exfoliator works well right before using our Pink Clay Mask. Always remember to moisturise after your Clay Mask application.

Am I still able to use this product as my skin gets irritated easily?

Yes! Our Alya Skin mask doesn’t contain any nasty ingredients. If you’re worried, we suggest consulting your GP or testing the mask on a small patch of skin either inside of your elbow or behind your ear.

Will I break out after using the mask?

The Kaolin clay in our Pink Clay Mask detoxifies the skin by pulling out impurities from beneath the skin's surface. As the clay pulls all these nasties from below, you may find your skin breaks out. Don't panic! This is your skin detoxifying and the Pink Clay Mask doing it's job. Be sure to moisturise after you use the mask and you'll be on your way to brighter, clearer skin in no time!

What is Pink Clay?

Pink clay is a form of kaolin clay and is a combination of white clay and red clay, safe for all types of sensitive skin! Red kaolin clay is great for very oily skin while white kaolin clay is the opposite and is mild on the skin. Therefore, pink clay is the perfect combination of both these clays. Pink clay helps to restore and replenish skin with moisture while also drawing out impurities. It is safe for sensitive skin but still delivers amazing results, almost instantly. Pink Kaolin Clay is rich in silica, which will help to improve skin elasticity and cell renewal for glowy, younger-looking skin. Silica also works as a natural anti-inflammatory substance that assists with retaining moisture. As well as silica, Pink clay is also rich in minerals such as kaolinite and calcite. We source our Pink Clay from Australia.

How do I remove the mask?

We recommend using a warm towel to remove the mask. We recommend moisturising once the mask is removed to ensure your skin stays hydrated.

Are all the ingredients in Alya Skin vegan friendly?

We love our furry friends and do not test our products on animals, and best of all, our products are vegan friendly too. We are PETA certified and approved.

Is it correct that all skin care products contain preservatives?

Correct! Preservatives are necessary in order to make sure that your skincare stays at its most effective in different climates and environments. We have however, kept preservatives to a bare minimum – it is in our best interest to ensure the efficacy of our product and also ensure that furry bacteria doesn’t grow inside your Alya Skin mask.

I'm pregnant - can I use Alya Skin?

How exciting! We wish you all the best with your pregnancy. Yes, our products are safe during pregnancy. If you have serious concerns, we recommend talking to your GP. However, our products do not contain any chemicals that will harm you or the baby.

What is the shelf life of your products?

Our Pink Clay Mask has a shelf life of 36 months. Please ensure to store in a cool place.

I have eczema / rosacea - is the mask suitable for me?

Yes! It is known that clay masks and facials dry your skin so this is why it is important to moisturize after removing the mask! If you do suffer from either, you may experience a slight tingling sensation on your first use. However, please note our products do not contain any ingredients that might trigger eczema or rosacea – everyone is different and everyone’s skin reacts differently to certain skin care products. Therefore, it is best to check with your GP if you have any major concerns!

Plump-It FAQs

How does it work?

Plump It! Is a lip plumper infused with natural actives & VBE, this produces a warm tingling sensation whilst the natural actives penetrate the pores in the lips to increase blood circulation which results in plumper & fuller lips. You should feel the tingle within 30 seconds-2 minutes of applying the serum. Plump up your pout in minutes!

Is it safe?

Of course - Plump It! is clinically tested, completely safe and is designed to be used as part of your everyday beauty routine! WINNER!

How do I use it?

When you first receive your Plump It! Pen, it may need to be clicked several times to dispense the serum. This is because a slight gap needs to be left as part of the filling process, but don’t worry - the amount of product in the pen is as specified - 3ml to be exact!

CAN I USE PLUMP IT! WHILE PREGNANT?

We’d advise against using Plump It! whilst pregnant. The reason being is that the product has not been tested in a similar environment. There is nothing dangerous contained within the product that could harm you or your baby, but we would advise against use in pregnancy and while breast feeding. Always speak to your health care provider if you’re unsure.

CAN I USE PLUMP IT! WHILE BREAST FEEDING?

We’d advise against using Plump It! whilst breast feeding for the same reasons as above - it has not been tested in a similar environment but if you’re unsure, you should always speak to your health care provider.

IS PLUMP IT! TESTED ON ANIMALS?

Nope! We are proud to say that Plump It! is not tested on animals and is totally cruelty free.

IS PLUMP IT! VEGETARIAN / VEGAN?

It sure is - Plump It! contains no animal extracts or animal derived ingredients. We are proud to say our product is completely Vegan & Cruelty free! That’s right - our product is never ever tested on animals.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

One application lasts for hours! Impressive, right? The natural actives last on the lips for anywhere between 2-12 hours - as with all cosmetics - this does vary from person to person. We recommend trying it for yourself

HOW DO I APPLY IT?

Click the button to dispense, see the serum rise to the tip and apply to the lips. Use the precision tip to massage the product into your lips. It’s as simple as that! One click is enough to produce a result - you can add more as you get used to the sensation & apply it as many times as you’d like throughout the day.

WILL IT HURT?

Nope, when applied in the advised quantity Plump It! will not hurt. You will feel a warm tingling sensation, which is a result of the increased blood flow to the area, but this subsides quickly and leaves you with plumper lips within just a few minutes! If you’re sensitive - simply apply a thin layer of lip balm before the Plump It! Serum. Job done!

Wow, the tingle is strong! what can I do?

Our Plumper is very different to others on the market. Instead of a cooling sensation or a slight tingle, our serum produces a warm tingling sensation which can feel quite unusual at first! We like to say ‘Own the tingle!’ which means you can control how strong you’d like it. Start with 1 click & build up from there! If you’re sensitive to the warm tingling sensation, we recommend applying a thin layer of lip balm to you lips prior to using Plump It! This will create a barrier but will not lessen your results so you can still enjoy a juicy pout!

CAN I USE PLUMP IT! IF I ALREADY HAVE LIP FILLERS?

You sure can! Plump It! is still effective even if you have lip fillers. It will not react with your current fillers, is completely safe to use and will still plump up your pout - Wooo! We DO NOT recommend using the product on dry, chapped lips, or lips with open wounds. We highly recommend waiting until your filler injection sites have completely healed before use. Always be sure to check with your Healthcare professional before using Plump It! with your lip fillers.

WHAT COLOUR IS PLUMP IT!?

Plump It! is completely clear. Once it’s been absorbed, the product is invisible - all that’s left is a gorgeous, plump pout! You can even layer it on top of your favourite lip stick.

IS IT A LIP GLOSS?

Although Plump It! looks like and is applied in the same way as a lip gloss, it acts very differently. Plump It! is a serum. Unlike a regular lip gloss, Plump It! completely absorbs into the lips leaving them plumper and ready for you to complete your look with your favourite lip colour on top. Plump It! is water based, meaning you don’t get the sticky texture silicon-based lip gloss creates. The finished effect is matte.

IS IT REVERSIBLE?

Absolutely! Unlike Dermal lip fillers and more extreme ways of plumping the lips (which are usually irreversible!) the effects of Plump It! are not permanent and will subside within 12 hours. A temporary, safe alternative to lip fillers - amazing!
