So just when I was wondering if I had time to visit the neighborhood salon that weekend, I received an invitation in my inbox from no less than Sakshi Nath to try the services of Queens Beauty Lounge. Hurray! The heavens must have heard the cries of my nails and hair! ☺ Of course I grabbed the opportunity and booked an appointment right away.
I arrived at their Marina branch which was just a few minutes walk from the DAMAC metro station, and was immediately greeted by Jasmine.
Yup, you read right…CHOCOLATE! When Sakshi sent me the different treatments Queens was offering for their Valentines campaign, I couldn’t believe my luck. Not only would my tips and toes be taken care of, my arms and legs would be wrapped in luscious chocolate too! Woohoo!
Of course they didn’t use edible chocolate. There's a special cocoa that’s used and mixed with oil, and this brown-gray muddy mixture softens the skin and makes it slightly lighter.
After scrubbing my arms to make them clean, Chamomile then began covering my arms with the chocolate substance, and finally wrapped them in plastic; only taking the plastic off and removing the chocolate with a moist towel once she was done with my manicure. She then rubbed some vanilla-scented cream on my arms, making them smell more heavenly and delicious. Rose did the same thing with my legs and feet, although it took her longer because she also scrubbed off the dead skin. Of course I didn’t mind. It gave my feet and toes the long overdue spa pedicure they deserved.
|chocolate all the way! ☺|
I changed back into my clothes, stepped in my shoes, and two and a half hours after I entered Queens Beauty Lounge, I left it feeling totally relaxed and fully pampered, just like a queen.
