Before trying Bare Minerals foundation I had never worn a foundation before. I had tried, however, several different brands but really disliked the feeling and look it gave my skin. I wanted my make-up to look natural, and not heavy.
I was recommended to use Bare Minerals as it is 100% natural mineral make-up, meaning that there is nothing in the foundation that would clog or congest my skin. In fact it is so pure, you could even sleep in it!! (Not that I do, of course!)
MBNS have loads of special offers on Bare Minerals make-up until Christmas!
I love this make-up so much that I am now using their lip gloss, mascara, eyeshadow, blusher, and bronzer! The foundation contains a natural SFP 15 and no talc. It gives my skin a natural, even glow and even helps reduce redness as one of it’s main ingredients is zinc oxide.
Why not pop into see us and we will do a FREE Make up Consultation for you, then you will see just how great this make up really is!
Call us now on 01844 213007 to book your Bare Minerals make up consultation, or fill out the form HERE and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Did you know that 70% of women ‘manage’ their own facial hair removal?- by that I mean plucking and even shaving the area, sometimes daily! Hairs seem to pop up out of nowhere and when spotted, are unceremoniously plucked, waxed and shaved only to be repeated the next day or so! Well that ordeal can be a thing of the past.
We here at MBNS our nurse specialists have been treating patients for over seventeen years with Intense Pulsed Light treatment (IPL) for permanent hair removal. A light passes over the hair which kills it at the root. The hair follicles fall out after a few days and you are hair free for about six weeks as six weeks is the length of a hair cycle. Treatments are six weeks apart on the face and you may need 6-8 treatments. After all the hair has been permanently removed, you will be hair free and you will no longer have to pluck, wax or shave – now does that sound like music to your ears?
There are a few guidelines to having successful permanent hair removal treatment which are:
1. You cannot have an active suntan, used a sun bed or used fake tan in the last month.
Reason: the light is attracted to the pigment in the hair, and if your skin has pigment then the whole area will be treated and you may receive a burn.
2. If you take St John’s Wort, it needs to be stopped for a month prior to treatment.
Reason: this herbal medication can make the skin light sensitive and you may experience a burn.
3. The hair must have some pigment to it. On consultation the nurse will assess it. Even if you think your hair is blonde/grey , it may still have pigment and your treatment will be successful.
So now you are armed with the facts, why not give us a call on 01844 213007 to book a consultation with one of our specialist nurses or fill out the form HERE and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Unsightly facial hair can be a thing of the past so what are you waiting for?

From The Consulting Room:Botox beautician pleads guilty in court to five charges of fraud. This week has seen the ongoing story of beautician Jamie Winter, originally from Scarborough, who was arrested in May 2012 and charged with fraud by false representation, having treated several people and claimed to them that she was trained and qualified to inject botulinum toxin; which it transpires she purchased over the Internet. One women treated by her told police that she had suffered a reaction to the procedure which had left her with swollen eyes. The court considered various assault charges, but these were later dropped as at the time her clients were perfectly happy for her to administer the drug. Ms. Winter admitted to Hull Crown Court that she had mislead her customers over the extent of her training and pleaded guilty to five charges of fraud by false representation between July 2011 and August 2012. On leaving the court she is said to have told reporters that she has administered the drug on herself but is not seeking a future career in it. Jamie Winter will be sentenced on 11th November.
Marea Brennan Thorns RN NIP MSc is one of the MBNS Nurses who are also toxin and dermal filler trainers.
Untrained individuals performing Botox and other injectable treatments are becoming more widespread in the UK where the the lure to charge high prices is paramount over the safety of the patient. As you can see from the article above, the person in question was not trained and qualified to inject the toxin and her client suffered as a consequence of her lack of knowledge and training.
Always ask about the training and experience of your practitioner if undergoing any aesthetic treatments.
At MBNS clinic in Thame, rest assured that you will be welcomed and treated by one of five professional nurse practitioners with over 17 years experience in the aesthetic industry. Three of MBNS’ nurses are also trainers in this field and have shared their knowledge teaching plastic surgeons and fellow nurses alike for many years.
If you are considering any aesthetic treatments why not give MBNS a call on 01844 213007 to book a consultation or fill out the form HERE and find out more about our team and the treatments we offer including dermal fillers and permanent hair removal. We look forward to meeting you and helping you look your natural best safely and professionally at all times.

Hydra Cool Serum is available at the MBNS online shop in both 15ml and 30ml bottles.
Have you noticed that the season is changing? The summer is well and truly on its way out, and we have colder autumn days ahead of us! So that means we are wrapping up more, aren’t we, exposing our skin to the elements and putting on the central heating? All of this plays havoc to our skin; it begins to feel dry, breakouts can happen and it loses its laxity.
We can treat your dry skin here at MBNS!
Lack of moisture and a change in seasons means that we have to step up our hydration of our skin, and the best way to do that is a three pronged approach: A Fire and Ice Medical Facial, iS Clinical’s Hydra Cool Serum and iS Clinical’s moisturising SPF factor 50.
The Fire and Ice Facial really helps your skin adapt to the changes of the season by pouring moisture back into it by means of botanical potent serums including Hydra Cool, which is an anti acnaic moisturiser in a serum. It really is the answer to dry flaky skin. A sealant of SPF smoothed over the surface of the skin is the perfect solution so that the face is protected from the damaging wind and rain – you see, an SPF is not only for sun protection, it is a moisturiser and skin protecter all in one!
MBNS has a special offer on the great Hydra Cool Serum this month -Usually priced at £41 for 15ml and £73 for 30ml, the prices for October are £30 and £60 respectively! Visit our online shop by clicking here to get yours now.
If you would like to find out more about the Fire and Ice Medical Facial or any other of the treatments offered at MBNS including wrinkle relaxing treatments, dermal fillers and permanent hair removal to name a few, please contact us on 01844 213007 or fill out the form HERE, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Many of our patients come to see us with the skin condition, Rosacea. Quite simply, it has the appearance of angry red skin which looks and feels sore and inflamed. Rosacea can be, if untreated, a long-term skin condition that mainly affects the face. Symptoms begin with episodes of flushing (when the skin turns red).
As Rosacea progresses, other symptoms can develop such as: burning and stinging sensations, permanent redness, spots (papules and pustules) or small blood vessels in the skin becoming visible. In the most severe cases, skin can thicken and enlarge, usually on and around the nose.
We here at MBNS clinic in Thame have 5 specialist nurses who can help patients with this skin condition by offering specific iS Clinical products that will keep the Rosacea at bay by reducing the inflammation and redness.
You can see on the left, a photo of a patient who had struggled with Rosacea for a long time. Her nurse advised her to use the following products from the iS Clinical range: Cleansing Complex, Pro Heal Serum Hydra Cool Serum and SPF.
As you can see, from only after one week, the skin had begun to settle and redness was controlled.
The iS Clinical line is a medical strength skincare regime, much more potent than any you could buy on the high street. The surgeons and chemists who developed the products have put their years of expertise into these serums which dramatically change the skin, whether it be to control Rosacea, reduce lines and wrinkles or keep the skin youthful, packed full of antioxidants and well nourished.
If you would like to find out more about the iS Clinical line, or any other treatment and products we offer at MBNS, kindly call us on 01844 213007 to speak live to a member of our team, or fill out the form HERE, and we will get back to you swiftly!

Our nurse Marea Brennan Thorns delivered a powerful presentation at last weekend’s British Association of Cosmetic Nurse Conference in Manchester on the subject of the range of Juvederm dermal fillers.
Although her lecture was entitled a Masterclass, she quickly established an informal rapport with her audience. Showing slides on her knowledge of anatomy she also shared her useful tips and techniques on treating the area around the mouth and natural lip definition. Marea showed the assembled national assembly of nurses a video of her Juvederm Volbella injection techniques. She went on to say that men and women chose MBNS/Qutis Clinics because we give a natural look . The clinics based in Oxfordshire offer all types or anti -ageing treatments to keep your skin looking its natural best.
“Marea and all of our nurse team are held in very high esteem by educational organisations and are the UK nurse experts chosen to teach other practitioners”.
Colleague Anne Devenport says “we think our patients are very lucky, Marea and all of our nurse team are held in very high esteem by educational organisations and are the UK nurse experts chosen to teach other practitioners. What a reassuring thing for our new clients to know!”
Why not take a look at the November Issue of Red Magazine showing the Juvederm advertising campaign.

Skin Tightening treatment at MBNS is fantastic if you want to firm up jowls and jaw lines naturally, and it gives you the ability to comfortably reverse the signs of ageing and achieve a more youthful appearance with no downtime!
The treatment involves the use of combined energy ( bi-polar radiofrequency and light) which penetrate into the skin and naturally stimulate more of your body’s own collagen.
We are all aware that as we age, we lose that full, youthful look in our faces which makes us look older than we feel! With skin tightening, facial contours and necks are improved, and overall skin quality reveals a much smoother, tighter and even complexion. You will see an instant lift, but it continues working under your skin for the following six weeks.
MBNS are offering Skin Tightening Treatment absolutely FREE! (When you book an eMatrix treatment)
This month at MBNS we are offering this cutting edge technology absolutely FREE! We are combining skin tightening with an eMatrix treatment. Here’s a little bit about eMatrix (don’t worry, it’s not too technical!).
We have been treating uneven complexions, acne scarring and fine lines and wrinkles with eMatrix for over 3 years now. This machine based treatment uses radio frequency in a similar way to skin tightening, but goes deeper into the dermis, blasting apart the collagen causing new cells to form and push to the service. This results in smoothing out lines and wrinkles, so making the skin more even and even reduces acne scarring!
There are 3 price stages for an eMatrix treatment: Full Face £250 Full Face and Neck £350 Full Face, Neck and Décolletage £500.
Skin tightening is usually £200 per treatment – but during this month, if had with an eMatrix treatment, it is absolutely FREE!
So what are you waiting for? If you would like to book a consultation regarding skin tightening, eMatrix or any other of the treatments offered at MBNS, kindly ring us on 01844 213007 now or fill out the form HERE, and we will get back to you swiftly.
We look forward to helping you look your natural best!

As we are approaching autumn , and dare I say it – winter, now is the best time to start thinking about getting hair free in time for next summer! The winter months are the best time to fit in any IPL laser hair removal treatments as it is less likely you will have any form of tan.
The feedback we get from pretty much every hair removal client we have at MBNS which is an experienced laser hair removal clinic close to Aylesbury, is “why on earth didn’t I get this done sooner?!” It makes your day to day routine so much easier not having to shave or wax and the skin where the hair was is so smooth, so no more of that horrible stubbly, sore skin.
People tend to need around six to eight laser hair removal treatments
The treatment works by an Intense Pulsed Light targeting the hair follicle itself, stopping it from being able to produce hairs. This means that results are permanent (with the exception of a small amount of regrowth that you may experience due to hormonal changes at certain stages in your life). People tend to need around six to eight treatments, with twelve weeks in between for bodily hair, and six weeks in between for facial hair. Hence why now is the best time to get your treatment started so you can fit in a good three treatments by next Spring, meaning your hair growth would be dramatically reduced and much much finer in time for your summer holidays. What a lovely thought to keep us going through the cold months!
Call us on 01844 213007 regarding laser hair removal in Aylesbury or fill in the form HERE to book in a consultation with one of our Aesthetic Nurse Specialists to plan your individual course of treatment to get you beach ready for 2014!!!
