I treated myself to the package (full body massage, basic facial and shellac nails) yesterday.
I had visited the salon before, so I had no problems finding it and as usual the place was spotless and had a lovely, warm ambiance. My treatments started with the full body massage, which I enjoyed as the therapist asked me about what pressure I like and what areas I have problems with. She focused on my back and head/scalp and I felt really relaxed.
Next I had the facial in the same room with another therapist. This therapist was also lovely and friendly like the previous one and did an amazing job. The only reason why I have not scored the facial very high, is because I currently suffer from hormonal breakouts after having a baby and I really don't find Mary Cohr facials to help much with acne. The cream apllied at the end of the facial is also very shiny and after having extractions done, a red and very shiny face is not a very good look. I do prefer mat creams and ideally lotions as they are lighter for my currently oily/acneic skin. This however in no way reflects the skills of the therapist and of course it was the treatment on offer, so I guess it just was not my cup of tea. If you have normal, dry skin I think that this facial would be ideal.
Next I had my shellac nails done along with a lovely cup of tea and biscuit, which was a nice touch. The nails were good, my only criticism if any is that some parts of my short nails were not painted and therefore regrowth will become apparent quicker, but I can appreciate it is not always easy to paint very short nails. Also there was no buffing, just a basic manicure where cuticles are pushed back and slightly filled. I was happy with the result again because I don't think there was much you could do with the length of my nails, but if I had longer nails I would expect to be asked what shape I liked them filled etc.
Overall a really relaxing day and a good deal, just some treatments not as good for my personal liking, but what an amazing place and staff! So welcoming. I plan to visit many more times.
