I seldom recommend day spas or beauty treatment/salon services. After all, I tend to remain loyal to my usual haunts whenever I feel the need to pamper myself for an hour or two in one. But this one I just got to blog about because I know that the people behind it would make wonderful endorsers of their business.
Enter The Makeover Lounge at the Ground Floor of 81 Xavier Residences in Xavier St. near Greenhills. The formal launch took place last Thursday, October 29, with the five (5) beautiful ladies – Actress Angelu de Leon, Celebrity Chef Rosebud Benitez, Fitz Pabalan, Tin Soriano Corpus and Jonnah Nubla – behind it graciously welcoming my photographer-friend Joy Arguil and I.
The place looks very welcoming, with white interiors that instantly exude a breath of relaxation. They have the most comfortable massage chairs that do the back rub trick while getting your manicure/pedicure/foot spa. And if a soothing massage is your thing, they have several cubicles to accommodate your tired body and trained female therapists to release the stressful knots from a day’s work or even a week.
Now don’t get them started on looking picture perfect because they also have expert make-up artists who can transform your face into a work of cosmetic art. They use Happy Skin products by Rissa Mananquil-Trillo guaranteed to weave that kind of magic that will protect your outer layers at the same time.This is where I happily bumped into Miss World Philippines 2015 Hillarie Danielle Parungao who happens to be a good friend of one of the owners, and where we actually had our extra substantial conversation ever since she won the national title.
Drop by The Makeover Lounge one of these days. You sure won’t regret spending your free day with them. You’ll definitely get all-around pampering. Look for their Managing Partner Fitz Pabalan and you might score a discount after mentioning that you read about it here. 😉
