Nails Glow Iloilo Spa Review

Had a bonding with my parents over a spa and a pedicure at Nails Glow Iloilo at SM City (beside the bingo area) this Sunday. It was just what I needed for my tired legs and feet! Besides, I can’t even remember the last time I had a legitย pedicure.

Some of the services that they offer.

Availed this.

The whole place of Nails Glow Iloilo has this earthy and homey vibe due to the abundance of greens. It’s also very bright, as you can see in the photos. I was immediately catered by their receptionist/cashier upon entering their spa and was asked what service/s that I would like to avail. I chose the Premium Foot Spa package which has seven applications: Foot Soak, Foot Scrub, Foot Masque, Foot Cleanser, Foot Oil, Foot Butter and Foot Mist. I also chose one of the five extra varieties which is Aromatherapy. This costs 250 PHP. However, pedicure is not included so you have to pay an extra 180 PHP for it. I chose a teal color for my nail polish.

Massage rooms

The whole process started with soaking my feet on a hot water; just the right amount of heat, of course. Right then and there, my feet felt relaxed. I also got my ‘Negosyo’ book by Joey Concepcion to keep me company, although Nails Glow Iloilo has a free WiFi connection for their customers, I chose to disconnect for the most part and just dive into the gold mine of information on Entrepreneurship this book has.

Then the fun part begins…

The massage was even more relaxing and I seriously wanted to sleep! There was just enough pressure applied by the masseuse and I couldn’t concentrate on the book that I was reading; the relaxation background music that they were playing wasn’t helping either. I guess this momma is just exhausted.

Application of masque

I asked Jonessa (if I remember her name right) , the masseuse/pedicurist who handled me, the benefits of some of the seven applications included in the package. The masque is for moisturizing and skin lifting; the cleanser and massage is, of course, for relaxation. Jonessa spent quite some time getting rid of my callouses, seriously, they were too stubborn! It’s embarrassing. But heck, for the sake of this post and my credibility as a blogger, I’ll be blunt about it. Haha! ๐Ÿ™‚

Jonessa even commented on how short my nails are! So, I told her that I prefer short nails because it’s easier to manage especially now that I’m a mom. Also, I don’t want Saehee (my daughter) to have scratches due to having long nails. Anyway, I like Jonessa because aside from doing a great job on my foot spa and pedicure, she is also bubbly and chatty. I was observing other employees of Nails Glow Iloilo and they all seemed nice and chatty, as well. It’s making their customers feel comfortable with their company.

I particularly love this interior design of theirs!

The foot spa and pedicure lasted for about an hour. I wished it could have been longer because I just enjoyed the service and the experience! Anyway, the nail polish of one of my toenails got destroyed; prolly when we were still out and about ย after the spa, and I only noticed it when we got home. *sad*

Nails Glow Iloilo spa has other services offered like body massage and eyelash stuff (perming and extension), but majority of what you can avail from them are nail care. They have gel and acrylic nail polishes and nail extensions, as well.

Overall, it was a lovely experience. If the whole place wasn’t too bright, I could have slept all through out the procedure. Haha! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I would like to try their other services sooner or later.

Thank you, Nails Glow Iloilo!

My rating for Nails Glow Iloilo: 8/10

Mayonnaise Hair Treatment

Straightening and coloring simultaneously tortures our hair, like a lot. I made this mistake and has been left with dry hair for years. *crying* I’ve tried salon treatments to revive my brittle hair and they were okay but it’s not budget friendly. *crying again* That’s when I started to look for cheaper alternatives and the more natural, the better.

In this age when spas and expensive treatments rule the hair care industry, mayonnaise hair treatment is not only inexpensive but natural and safe too. Mayonnaise contains oils, eggs and other ingredients that nourish the hair. If your goal is softer, shinier, smoother feeling hair then mayonnaise might be a good match for you. Besides, Hollywood star Cameron Diaz swears by this!

How to make a Mayonnaise Hair Treatment:

1. Choose a regular, full-fat mayonnaise because it has all the ingredients that nourish your hair and make it soft plus silky. Avoid mayonnaise that contain extra flavoring of herbs and spices because it may do more harm than good to your hair. If you can, go for an all-natural, organic mayonnaise because this type typically contains olive oil. It’s available in any grocery store.

2. Use approximately 1/2 cup of mayo, more or less depending on the length of your hair. Don’t use more than needed because it might be difficult to wash it all out. Apply mayonnaise to freshly cleansed, damp hair as you would with any conditioner. Focus on the ends since it’s the oldest part of the hair. Avoid the roots if you have thin or fine hair (like myself). You may want to use a wide-tooth comb to evenly distribute the mayo onto your hair.
3. Let the mayo sit from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on how much conditioning your hair needs or how much time that you have. I like to leave it overnight and wash it the following morning. Use a shower cap or any plastic bag to cover your hair; this will trap your body heat against your head and help the mayonnaise to get its work done of deep conditioning your hair.
4. Remove the cover and rinse your hair with warm water and a gentle shampoo (I use a baby shampoo). If you feel that there’s still some residue, you can cleanse again. Your hair should feel soft, not oily.
5. You can do this once a week or once a month. It all depends, again, on how much deep conditioning your hair needs.
No matter how healthy your hair is, we all need some timely caring and pampering for it.
