Beauty Lounge review - Chic & Posh

Last August 9, I went to Chic & Posh to try out their services using my Qgrabs voucher.

This would be a short review of Chic & Posh Beauty Lounge.


Ease of booking an appointment:
I decided to use my voucher last week of July. I called several time but nobody's picking up. It was a bit frustrating as the voucher will expire on the same month. After several attempt, someone answered my call. I was advised that I can still use my voucher on August. So I postponed my visit to August.

First Impression:
The name is spot on, the place is so chic. I love the interior and the ambiance.


Attitude of the staff:
Staff are friendly.

Service/Treatments availed:
Body massage, hot oil & nail polish

Body massage - I enjoyed the massage. It is quite different I might say. I can't quite figure it out if it's swedish or shiatsu. But what I know is, it is relaxing.

When I entered the massage room, the first thing I noticed is the cleanliness and how properly arrange the massage bed is. The room is dimmed and the temperature is just right. When the masseuse entered, she opened the ipod to play some instrumental music which is really relaxing. She then start putting oil.
 The pressure is moderate. I have this tendency to keep myself awake just to feel and experience the massage. I really like the leg and head massage. These two parts are my weak point. Once the masseuse starts touching these parts, I start to drift away to Dreamland. 

Hot oil - My hair is in need of some lovin'. So this treatment is needed. First, they washed my hair. The  lady who washed my hair is really gentle. After washing my hair, she wrapped my hair in a cling wrapped and I was placed under the hot oil machine for about 15-20 minutes. After that, my hair was washed again and then a new lady "semi" blow dried my hair. Oh boy, she was not gentle with my hair. She was tugging my hair as if in a hurry. I didn't complain coz I just want to just finished it coz I am not enjoying it.

Nail polish - my nails were shaped but not clean which is okay coz I plan to have a manicure somewhere. I like that they use Essie nail polish.

Value for Money:
Services are quite on a pricey side but they have promotions available in their Facebook Fan Page.

Would I go again? Probably. I wanted to try their Moroccan Hammam.

Verdict:
3/5

Room for improvement: 

  1. Use less oil. Good thing I did not feel greasy after the massage session.
  2. Increase the room temperature in the hair section of the salon. I was shivering when my hair was being washed. But the lady did turn off the AC coz she saw me shivering.
  3. Please be gentle when handling hair especially when blow drying the hair. 
  4. My nail polish chipped the next day.
