I have quite a few guilty pleasures in life: High School Musical, siopao binges, long roadtrips, and extremely hot showers. In fact, I love hot showers so much, I stay in the shower until all the mirrors fog up and I can feel my skin sizzle and almost burn.
So, when I heard that Nailaholics had a paraffin package sale, I rushed to the nearest branch, SM Southmall, to indulge in some heated goodness for my own personal pleasure. <3
Nailaholics' current promo will give you 20% off of an Atlantic Sea Moist Package, which includes a scrub and a paraffin manicure and pedicure.
The package starts with a regular foot spa true Nailaholics-style: with the Mentos-looking stones in them that I am still convinced are Mentos. :p
It is then followed by a scrub that will make you look like a mutant. :p (The semi-massage that came with it is divine!)
And then comes the best part: the actual paraffin. The best way to describe it would probably be pouring candle wax all over your legs and arms. Candle wax is another weird guilty pleasure of mine!
Aside from moisturising and softening your legs, feet, arms and hands, paraffin treatments are also said to provide relief from pain and arthritis.
Paraffin treatments can also improve blood flow and relax the muscles. So, if you walk, type or workout a lot, or even if you are simply tired; this would be a great treatment option for you!
The cutest part, though, is right after the treatment when they wrap up your legs and arms with plastic and then make you wear cute lil mittens like the ones you make newborns wear so they don't suck on their thumbs. Hihi.
Vincent admittedly wasn't too fond of the paraffin treatment (he doesn't like the heat), so it clearly isn't for everyone, but if you want to try the treatment yourself, I've got a treat for you!
Yes, yes! In partnership with Nailaholics, I am giving away a paraffin package for 2, so you can experience the same heat-delicious experience with a friend at your Nailaholics branch of choice! :) All you have to do is fill up this Rafflecopter form:
