Its a new year and most of us have started work already. The relaxation of the festive season and holidays seem like a distant memory, and you’re already wanting a timeout from it all, so why not pop into McQueens Boutique Spa and Blostyle Bar in Sea Point. Kerry and I popped in just before Christmas for a little R&R and a good pamper session before the festive season hit us.
This one stop beauty destination really lives up to its name with a huge array of premium services on offer from manicures and pedicures (using Nailberry L’Oxygen London ‘5 chemical free breathable nail polish), spray tans, massages to specialized skin treatments (some products used Mesoestetic, QMS products, Eco Diva and Dermalogica) and a fabulous dry bar, that leaves you feeling beautiful and pampered. McQueens spa prides itself in only using and stocking cruelty free, natural and organic (where possible) brands and products – which we are all for. They even offer luxurious ‘waterless-less’ manicures and pedicures to assist in their water-saving efforts.
I had the 60 minute Dermalogica facial which was heavenly and my skin felt so amazing and hydrated afterwards. Kerry, during her pregnancy (and partly post pregnancy) had hormones that reaked havoc on her skin and unfortunately was left with a little pigmentation. Not the easiest of skin woes to treat. At McQueens she opted for the QMS Pigment Corrector. This was the first time she experienced QMS products but her skin felt beautiful afterwards – she didn’t feel the need to reapply make up as soon as she walked out which can often be the case post facial when you feel exposed. QMS uses collagen to repair the skin and help with its appearance. She definitely left McQueens with a glow, and the picture below post facial and sans make-up speaks for itself.
