I am an experienced beauty therapist with a passion for the business. When setting up Purple Papillon Beauty there were two things I focused on. The first intention was to gain the best organic skincare products I could find and the second was to make the salon as inviting as possible so that everyone feels comfortable coming in for the necessary, as well as the pampering treats. I feel I have achieved both of those goals with the luscious Eminence Organic Skincare range and creating what I feel is a harmonious and peaceful place to escape to.
I did not always intend to be a beauty therapist, originally I studied Psychology at Exeter University then went on to do teacher training, becoming a qualified Primary School Teacher. I made the huge decision to change my career and found that there’s nothing better than making people feel good about themselves and helping them to relax in their ever busy lives. Having had a stressful job I know how necessary it is to take time for yourself and with the amount of office jobs in Jersey we tend to get a lot of back and neck issues, this coupled with stress can make for many a tight shoulder and sore neck. So please come see us for some pampering as well as those necessary treatments.
We have everything from Waxing and Tinting to Massage and Facials using the delightful Eminence Organic Skincare. We not only have the Back, Neck and Shoulder and Body Massage, but also offer Aromatherapy, Hot Stone and Indian Head Massage as well as the luscious Eminence body treatment. We do the Lash Perfect Eyelash Extensions and Make-up for everyday and special occasions as well as the ever-popular Manicures and Pedicures. We also welcome little ones who may want their nails done as a treat, or for a party.
Eminence contains all natural ingredients; it is completely organic, made purely from fruits, vegetables, flowers, herbs, minerals and spices. There are absolutely no synthetic contents or nasty chemicals in these products. Eminence is bursting with active ingredients - the things that really make a difference to your skin. They are rich in vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids to renew, repair, rejuvenate and feed your skin with all the natural goodness your body needs. Your skin is the biggest organ of the body, but it is the last one to receive nutrients from the food we eat, why not pump that 7-a-day goodness straight to the skin; give your skin a healthy diet. You think that sounds amazing, but it is way more than that. All the crops used in the products are organically grown; they are planted by hand and handpicked. The products are cold pressed, which means no heating or hydrogenating processes that would affect the potency of the natural ingredients. The packaging is all eco-friendly, vegetable based inks and recycled paper - even the delivery boxes are reused and the packing chips are 100% bio- degradable. The factories are run on wind and solar energy, not only that, but this eco-friendly, organic company plants one tree in an equatorial deforestation area for every Eminence product sold. And they never test on animals.
"My sensitive skin LOVED these products. Even the best facials usually leave my skin feeling a little irritated, but after my first Eminence facial with Shona my skin felt completely comfortable - and stayed breakout free in the weeks afterwards. I'm changing my skincare to Eminence!"
Emily, Grouville "I absolutely loved the hot stone back, neck and shoulder massage. It was very relaxing and I would certainly recommend it to anyone."
"I've always found my eyelashes too short - even with mascara on - so I decided to get some extensions, although I wasn't sure what to expect. But it was fantastic! The application process was really soothing and relaxing - I even fell asleep! The lashes themselves looked amazing and natural. They stayed in for a month too and I didn't have to use any mascara on them. Highly recommend."
Francine, St. Helier "I have really enjoyed my pregnancy massages with Shona. She uses whatever level of pressure you're comfortable with (in my case, firm!) to really work away all of those aches and pains. She also takes great care to make sure that you are in comfortable positions throughout the treatment. I was left feeling very relaxed, such a lovely treat."
