Sat., May 21, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.: Facial Acupuncture. Thurs., May 26: Eyebrow Threading

Shen’s facial acupuncturist, Lisa, is back on Saturday performing wonders with anti-aging, revitalising and harmonising acupuncture that has proved such a hit. Lisa will be in from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call if you want more information or would like to book an appointment.

Each facial is $150 for an hour’s session.

Also the ever popular Samina will return on Thursday May 26th to tidy brows and the upper lip area with her threading technique. Her prices are $12 for eyebrows and $20 for brows and upper lip together.

This is a drop in service but do book if you want to avoid disappointment.

A lot going on at Shen this week. They have a couple items recently recommended by Vogue and the Zoe Report:

$18 large Claus Porto chunky soaps in the Cerina fragrance

$16 coral colored nail polish called Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Deborah Lippman

Also, Becca cosmestic are now in stock.

I finally went into Shen for the first time last week because I was looking for a specific nail polish color. I found what I was looking for and brought it to the counter to pay. I looked in my wallet and realized I only had $9 and the polish was $10, so I said something like, “I can charge this, right?” The woman who, apparently is the owner of the shop, responded, “Well, we usually have a $20 minimum for charges.” When I told her I would come back another time when I had enough cash, she sighed dramatically and said, “Well, isn’t there anything else you’d like to buy? Why don’t you look around some more.” I found this pretty rude — to act as though I’m putting her out because I’m only spending $10! She ended up reluctantly agreeing to let me charge it, even though I communicated to her that I had no problem returning at another time. A) I already had looked around and found everything I wanted to buy — that’s why I went up to the counter to pay; B) I’ve never heard of a $20 minimum — $5 yes, even $10, but $20 is ridiculous; and C) if you have a $20 minimum, then have it! Don’t get an attitude and huff and puff about how inconvenienced you are by your customer! I won’t go back.
