Specials for ‘Mothers Month’
It’s worth keeping an eye on hair, nail & skin beauty salon the You Bar, in the Thrupps Centre. They have some amazing specials, and currently there’s a ‘Mother’s Month’ promotion.
So I indulged in an Africology manicure, which is a delightful foray into various scrubs, a potato wrap, balms and massages. This included a novel hand massage with a warmed copper plate, which aids detoxification. All ingredients are natural, and the ‘rub’ of it is that for the month of May you can get an upgrade from a standard manicure or pedicure (or both) to an Africology experience, which includes extra massage. I had a divine 15-minute shoulder and neck massage. Clearly it’s all very much about feeling like a queen or a princess for a moment in time.
So while you pay for standard manicure (which costs R300) in effect you’re treated to an Africology manicure (which costs R425) plus you get a 15-minute add-on massage. While I was enjoying myself, several people came in to buy vouchers as gifts for moms or spouses for Mother’s Day, so clearly mom’s month thing is top of mind.
