As a parent, I seldom have the time to sit down and get pampered. I shun away from weekly nail lacquer applications because it contributes to my recurring nail problems such as brittleness and cracking. The occasional manicure-pedicure will allow my nails to regrow and repair itself.
The invitation to try out Luxe Aura services last weekend was just what I needed.
I went in for Foot Spa (P 300) and Hand Spa (P350). The Luxe Aura beauticians immediately worked their magic into my tired arms and legs simultaneously.
They soaked my hands and feet in warm water to soften the skin. The seven-step hand spa was heavenly as the eight-step foot spa! It gave me instant bliss!
The bunions were removed from my feet in the Callous Removal step, and it was not painful. Next came in Scrubing, where micro beads gently slough off dead skin. After washing it off, they apply lotion, wraps it with cling wrap and then places warm towel to steam my legs.
Later, it is washed off using warm water. After a couple of minutes, the girls starts to massage my legs and feet. Moisturizing and Hydrating shortly follows the Massage, leaving my feet and leg smelling fresh.
To cap of the whole process, I opted for a manicure and pedicure service. I was proactive with the nail technicians as their nail tools are new and quite sharp. I don't want to risk inflammation and the ladies were attentive enough not to push the ingrown cuticles.
They have all sorts of branded nail polishes you can choose from---Morgan Taylor, Essie, Zoya, and OPI.
I decided to go for Gel polish to complement my luxurious hand and foot pampering treatment at Luxe Aura Salon.
I was told that gel polishes offer long-lasting and durable results in a quick manner. And this is my first time to try out a gel manicure and pedicure.
Nail and Face Studio only uses the top-rated brand Gelish for gel polish services.
Gel nail polish is more durable compare to acrylic nail polishes as it can last two weeks or more without chipping.
I've always wondered how gel nail polish worked exactly. It sure looks pretty amazing and I love that fact that it hasn’t chipped all week. My hands and feet looked divine with my gleaming, Gellish nails!
Luxe Aura Nail and Face Studio also offers various European facials (which does not involve pricking your face, priced at P 600).
I had the chance to try their facial which follows a step-by-step procedure as well.
Do try out their Head to Toe Packages and be impressed. While the facility and the nail spa appears elegant, you will be surprised to find out that is light on the pocket and very affordable.
