Sometimes, it’s not just about the fancy therapy but also the warmth and personalised treatment you get at a salon that makes you want to revist it. Beauty blogger and make-up artiste Reshu Malhotra’s The Artist Beauty Lounge in Oud Metha is one such place. And I experienced it in its entirety when I went for a full-day pampering session. First up was an exhilarating 75-minute Dermalogica Facial where the trained therapist first did a face-mapping to understand my skin’s needs. She decided the anti-ageing Age Smart Facial (Dhs 390) was what my skin doctor ordered and boy, did it work its magic! The massage and creams made my face look years younger and tighter!
Then it was time to pamper my hair. Reshu gave my over-coloured tresses the gentle touch of the Olaplex Hair Treatment (Dhs 250). Called the ‘insurance for hair’, this hair conditioning treatment helps rebuild damaged hair bonds, restore its structure and strength.
Finally, the attention turned to my brittle nails. The Shellac Manicure using CND Shellac 14+ Day Nail color polish with 2 Rose chrome nails, and a spa pedicure with CND Shellac polish, including foot soak, exfoliation, nail and cuticle grooming and foot massage ended what had been a long session that helped me feel like a whole new person.
Can’t wait to return!
