REVIEW: The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge

Quezon City is always, always full of surprises. Apart from the restaurants along Maginhawa Street and the food stalls inside UP Diliman, Quezon City also doesn’t run out of go-to places for people who want to relax.

In fact, we have found our new favorite spa in QC–The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge along Capitol Hills Drive.

It’s a very cozy spa and it offers high-quality services at affordable rates. It also uses all-natural products, which are all proven to be safe and gentle on skin.

Minette had the Premium Dead Sea Salt Therapy Treatment. This one-of-a-kind body spa treatment combined the luxurious scent of vanilla with the various skin care benefits of lavender and Dead Sea salt. It was also an intense exfoliation treatment paired with a premium mineral-rich marine mask that helped lighten, rejuvenate, and detoxified Minette’s skin. She also got a back massage after that treat.

Meanwhile, I was able to try the Premium Signature Treatment. It was a 3-in-1 hand spa treatment that helped lighten, rejuvenate, and nourish my tired hands. It was paired with the Premium Signature Dead Sea Salt Therapy, a foot spa treatment that also lightened, rejuvenated, and nourished my skin with vanilla, lavender, and mint.

To take relaxation to the next level, I also tried foot reflexology. I enjoyed it a lot because the masseuse was so careful and the amount of pressure was just right. I was able to attest that everyone at The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge had proper training and ample amount of experience. They were also friendly, making things even better.

I had my nails done, as well. I was impressed that the entire manicure and pedicure session did not hurt at all. Both were done flawlessly and carefully. Also, I loved the fact that there were a lot of nail polish colors to choose from. They also used high-quality polishes, so I was confident that my nails would be safe. I was also assured that they would not wear off easily, especially the gel polish used for my fingernails.

In the end, Minette and I were both really happy about our spa experience. It was indeed a perfect treat for both of us, given that we both had a tough week at work.
