Beauty Explorer: Dandelion Waxing

Hello everyone~
I decided to create a new segment on this blog, called 'Beauty Explorer' where I will share about beauty-related places that I have visited and tried in Surabaya to all of you - for the example like beauty clinic, hair salon, spa, etc. And yeah I just want to clarify that this is NOT a sponsored or paid post, and I have paid the treatment with my own money!

So.. 2 weeks ago, my college friends and I went to Dandelion for the first time, which is located at G-Walk Surabaya, and yeah it is very close to the location of our university.

Actually I found out about this place from ce Shelvi a few months ago, she is one of my fellow Surabaya Beauty Bloggers. And I was interested to visit this place, that is why I forced persuaded 4 of my friends to come with me LOL. Oh I think I have a great marketing strategy *cough*,
do not you agree with me? kkk~

The interior design of this place is super duper cute and girly, right? Pink everywhere~!
And the area of this place is not too wide, but it is very homey for me.

Nail polishes~~

Well, Dandelion specializes in hair removal.. but besides waxing, they also provide other beauty services such as nail care (manicure, pedicure, nail spa, nail art) and eyelash extension as well.
And here is the pricelist of their services - click the picture below to zoom!

And actually this is the main reason why I persuaded my friends to come with me. So, during this October, they have a special promo 'BUY 2 GET 3' for strawberry nail spa, includes basic manicure or pedicure, strawberry scrub, massage, strawberry mask, and nail polish! There are still a few days left before October ends, so what are you waiting for? :P

I have made an appointment the day before, and I was there on a Friday afternoon. There were no visitors other than the 5 of us, but unfortunately my first impression about the lady at the front desk was not really that good, because at first she refused us when we said that we would like to try the strawberry nail spa party promo because of short-staffed ugh. Actually I have read about the vacancy employee in front of the building before I entered. But in the end, they agreed after some of us changed our service orders. And they also refused 2 other visitors after we arrived with the same reason err.

So, 2 of my friends and I decided to choose manicure. And basically all the steps of their manicure is same just like most of the other manicure treatments. She soaked my nails in a bowl of warm water, cut and filed my nails, pushed back the cuticles, then buffed my nails.

After that, she applied strawberry scrub all over my hands and my arms, then she rubbed and massaged my arms. And she also applied strawberry body butter on my arms, then she wrapped my arms with a plastic wrap to help the lotion absorbs much better into my skin and lock in the moisture. And oh just for your information, they use The Body Shop products for this treatment.

And for the nail polish, I chose this glittery reddish pink nail polish from OPI, which is super pretty. But sorry I forgot the name of this shade ugh! >_<

Fanny and Novi also did the same treatment like me, and Jessica did the regular nail polish, while Flo did waxing for her underarms and regular nail polish as well. She told me that the hard wax was not too painful and it took her about 15 minutes. Oh well, I am interested to try their waxing service, especially the ice wax!

And after this nail spa treatment, my skin feels so soft and smooth, but unfortunately she did not completely remove the nail polish around my nails very well - as well as one of my friends. Duh I guess they were too hasty, eh? But all of the staffs were very kind and friendly. So yeah, I just hope they will employs some new staffs as soon as possible!

Sorry for my almost-bare face! I only applied sunscreen, BB cushion, eyebrow pencil, and tinted-lip balm for my college daily makeup look.

My friends : Novi, Flo, Fanny, Jessica.
