Bloom & Bare Beauty Salon
This is our content manager, Kim’s, favourite hangout when she feels like a little bit of pampering. Bloom & Bare Beauty Salon in the Boskruin Village Shopping Centre (right above Mugg & Bean) is a luxury beauty salon offering ladies (and gents) a host of must-try treatments. Keep an eye out for their awesome specials, like Gelish Tuesdays and Fridays! This offer gives you the choice of an Easy Gelish Mani for R200, Easy Gelish Pedi for R250 or the Easy Gelish Mani & Pedi Combo for R400 (R50 over our limit). You can also add a Foot Peel & Soak for baby soft feet for an extra R90. These prices are valid for this offer and these days ONLY. Make sure you book in advance, spaces fill up quickly!
We know, a pedi article wouldn’t be complete without giving Sorbet a mention! They offer a variety of manis and pedis to suit every budget. A Mini-Me Pedi is perfect for those of us who are always too busy to treat ourselves. It’s a quick soak, file, buff and paint and you get to carry on with the rest of your day. But, if you’re looking to indulge a little, there are more thorough and relaxing pedi treatments to choose from. Sorbet also offers a Power Mani, which is a full manicure treatment, including exfoliation and massage. This is the manicure a girl should get when she’s really spoiling herself.
