I know that a lot of you are thinking that botox doesn't feel good and it's not something that anyone would put themselves through intentionally. That's partially true, but the fact is that although botox is painful a lot of ladies see some great results and are willing to spend a lot of money for injections. If you think botox is for you, make sure that you have a great doctor and you've done your research so you know exactly what you're in for.

Remember when you were a kid and you played in the rain and the mud, and then your skin was amazingly soft? Well, this is the grown up version. Lay back, relax, and let me mud settle over your skin. It feels amazing and somewhere deep down that little kid inside of you is rejoicing for that little bit of dirty time!

Ever since HBO started coming out with shows about glamorous New Yorkers, waxing has become incredibly popular. From eyebrows to knuckles to that delicate area that no one really wants to talk about waxing, from doing it in specialist parlors to waxing at home, people are getting waxed. I personally hope it's one beauty treatment that will never lose it's popularity.

As women, we force our feet into some pretty gnarly torture devices that we like to call shoes, and most of them give a tiny peek of our toes or heels or the tops of our feet. And since we force our feet into these peep toe sling back shoes of death, we often decide to treat them with pedicures. Basically, if you've never had one stop reading and go steal your little slice of heaven. You'll see why these made the list.

This is a beauty treatment that sounds really incredibly painful and unnecessary but after doing a little research I think that might be untrue. Basically, it's not very painful and the procedure is just to remove old dead skin that's been damaged by the sun, scared, or covered in acne. So really, it's like exfoliating but to the power of about 10!

Ok, this is a little dangerous when used incorrectly, not only can you come out with some skin damage but worse, you could come out with a serious addiction. You'll wind up orange, constantly fiening for your next hit in the bed. But, when used in moderation, tanning can be a beautiful thing!

You know that feeling when your skin is so soft that you just can't stop touching it? That's exactly what a facial does to the skin on your face. So basically, you look like an utter fool with gunk all over your face for about 20 minutes but then afterward you'll want to touch your face ALL the time!

Seaweed wraps are kind of amazing, just so you all know. Not only do they relax you, but they also help rid your bodies of toxins and are said to help you lose weight. Just look out because when you get... unwrapped, you'll need to rinse off for sure. But, they are great, and they'll make you look and feel AMAZING!
Well ladies, we've reached the end of our list? Can you think of any beauty treatments I've left out? Care to talk about any of the ones you've tried? Let me know!
