Monday, August 17, 2015

     Raise your hands if you are stressed! I'm sure all of you will raise your hands and I'll raise mine too because I'm experiencing it right now. Stress is a part of our modern life. We all experience stress in some point of our lives. There are different levels of stress but whether we like it ore not, we are going to experience it. Since it's already a part of living, all we need to do is find ways to lessen the negative impact that it brings.

     It is important to find ways on how to relax and treat ourselves once in a while so that we can recharge, refresh, and renew our mind and body. A few weeks ago, I was invited by one of the prettiest and famous nail salons in the metro, Posh Nails to celebrate their 13th Anniversary in a relaxing and detoxifying way. During the event, they've also introduced their newest services that will draw out impurities by detoxifying the hands and feet. This service is called DETOX Mani+Pedi.

Product Review: Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi

Thursday, August 13, 2015

     Hello dearies! I'm excited to share with you this new product innovation that will make your feet beautiful in less than 5 minutes. The result is instant and after first use, you will see and feel the difference. You can bare your beautiful feet after 1 use.

     Do you love going to nail salon and have your foot spa and pedicure done twice a month? If yes, what are the no-no's that you've experienced before in your foot spa sesh? I presume that the list of not so good experiences include long queues, heavy-handed spa attendants, an accidental cut from the manual callus file, a tad expensive service, and time. If you're so busy, I'm sure that you'll just opt to have home service foot spa but not all nail salons in the metro cater to this kind of service. Fret not, I have a good news- introducing Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi :) This product can give all the benefits that you get your regular foot spa session at the comforts of your home! At first I was hesitant that it will give me a soft and smooth skin in an instant but after my first try, I'm impressed! Scroll down to see why you should have this product at home :)

Advantages of using Scholl Velvet Smooth vs. going to the spa and using a manual foot file:

  • Monetary savings (at least 80% from foot spa sessions).
  • Convenient to use as it removes hard skin in minutes. 
  • Ready to use on dry (not wet) skin. 
  • Hygienic because it is washable and comes with a replaceable roller head.

Photo below: After using 
Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi, the calluses are literally removed and the cracks are barely seen. Photo taken using my O+ 8.92 smartphone. No filter. 
What I like:

  • The price is affordable if I'll do the math it saves at least 80% from foot spa sessions.
  • Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi's ergonomically shaped soft-touch handle makes it easy to use.
  • It is battery operated no need for manual scrubbing. Just push the button and voila, let the specially designed rolling surface do the job!
  • It is easy to use.
  • No blade, cutting, and other sharp materials so it's safe and ready to use.
  • The product can be used immediately, no other tasking procedure required. 
  • The head can be replaced with a new roller head. Talk about convenience of refills!
  • After using the file, there's an instant result.
  • My feet feel soft and smooth to touch.
  • The calluses that I got from wearing rubber slippers are not that visible after one use of Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi.
  • Removes hard skin without damaging my normal thin skin. I have thin skin and there's a time where one of my foot spa sessions gone wrong. The attendant over-scrubbed the callus on the lateral plantar section. 
  • I'm impressed that it also blurs out or can lessen the wrinkled areas on the sole of my feet.

What I don't like:

  • None so far!

Will I repurchase? Yes, it's in the realm of possibility. This is a perfect gift this Christmas to foot spa fanatic friends and relatives.

     I give this a 4.5/5 rating. I highly recommend this product if you love having pedicure sesh twice a month and if you're the type of individual who is always on the go. This will perfectly fit your busy schedule. The convenience of having this product can save you time and hassles from going to nail spa and salon.

     No need to wait for long queues just to get a foot spa and pedicure in nail salons.. Just turn on the button and you're just a couple of minutes away to having a beautiful feet that you can bare anytime, anywhere!

Feature: French Tips Nail Parleur Fairview Terraces

Wednesday, November 05, 2014

     Hello all! I was invited by Sir Orgie, PR for Nail-a-holics for an afternoon of royal pampering experience at French Tips Nail Parleur Fairview Terraces three weeks ago. The nail salon is located at the 3rd level of the mall and it's my first time to visit a French themed salon that is also under the management of Nail-a-holics. What you see outside reflects the inside of French Tips Nail Parleur because the ambiance is different from other nail spa and salon themes that I have visited before. 

     The nail attendants were in a French painter like uniform and the music inside was very relaxing. It's more of classical baby! Don't be intimidated by the word "royal" because the price of their services are almost the same with other nail salons but I can say that the experience is worth paying for. To see more of French Tips Nail Parleur's interiors and the shades of nail polish that I've picked for my nail of the day, click CONTINUE READING :)

Toccare Spa #ThisIsMySpa

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

     Hello dearies! Three weeks ago, I was invited to have a “pamper me” day experience by one of the best spas in the metro based from the positive feed backs I've heard from some of the blog readers and it's - Toccare Spa. This is my first time featuring a spa here in my blog and because I had a great experience during my visit, I want all of you to see what Toccare Spa has to offer. 

     I know that some of you have already experienced to go in a spa before or have the service done at home but the experience may differ, right? So now I asked, what are the things that you consider with your "me time" at the spa? What are the qualities that you look for a spa service and will say "This is my spa" after the treatment that you have availed?

     To answer the questions I asked above, let me feature Toccare Spa. I think I've found the spa where I want to relax and get pampered not only because of the great customer service and high-end facilities but because I can really say that "This is my spa". Click CONTINUE READING to know see more of Toccare's facilities and services.
