We sent dozens bloggers all across the country to preview some Spa Week appointments to give you a sneak peek at Fall Spa Week’s #50dollartreatments everywhere! After Mommy Niri and Angela from Lip Gloss Break, we sent beauty editor, Channing from The Blay Report to The Back Room Hand & Foot Spa at Carol’s Daughter in Harlem, NYC to preview the Sweet Almond Treat Manicure and Pedicure including Cuticle Treatment and Gift with Purchase of Almond Cookie Frappe Body Lotion that they are offering for Spa Week for just $50.
The Best Part: Channing got to choose between a bunch of high-end nail polishes like Ginger & Liz, Chanel and Deborah Lippmann — along with our favorites Essie and OPI. Channing was thrilled to try a top-of-the-line lacquer as she had never had this option at any other spa she’d been to before. Thankfully, the somewhat daunting task of sorting through hundreds of brands and shades was minimized by a showering of mimosas! Channing got to ask lots of questions and was overjoyed that her manicurist didn’t seem to mind she had lots of questions. She even got some expert advice, below:
Insider’s Spa Tip: The actual treatment was really relaxing with the non-traditional set up. My gorgeous manicurist, Lekendra was super sweet. I asked her how readers can take care of their feet at home. You know, so you aren’t embarrassed when you show up for your appointment. I kid– kind of. “People who have rough patches of skin, can get a foot paddle and rub underneath the sole,” she said. She suggests doing it on dry skin, and clean up the excess after a shower when your skin is damp. But not too often ‘Nistas and ‘Nistos, our girl Lekendra says no more than twice a week. You could actually could make the callous situation worst. After sloughing off your dead skin, load up on the heavy moisturizer and wear cotton socks so the moisture is able to soak in. Then you won’t be so embarrassed to bare your feet for Lekendra.
In her own words: “I can’t tell you ladies how much I enjoyed my time at The Back Room Spa at Carol’s Daughter. My Sweet Almond Treat Manicure and Pedicure with cuticle treatment and gift with purchase of Almond Cookie Frappe Body Lotion (smells soo good) hit the spot!” Read all about Channing’s Back Room adventures on The Blay Report and on her own blog, Channing in the City.
