Whether it’s an office job or work from home entrepreneurs, we women face a common challenge. Taking out time for personal grooming and beautifying services! I personally had the biggest of this struggle and I stopped going to salons long back and switched to everything done by myself at home. I epilate instead of waxing, do the mini facials or mani-pedis and simple hair treatments. Lack of time and sometimes unable to leave home due to several reasons, like a baby, bad health or commuting issues makes it really difficult to get salon services and feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
But then! I heard of the new MyGlamm Doorstep Spa and Salon Services which has recently opened in Gurgaon/Gurugram! They are already functional in many other cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, etc but Gurgaon was the new addition and I am super glad as I reside there! I was craving for a Manicure and Pedicure for the longest of the time and when I heard about them, this was the very first service I wanted to go for!
There is a number that you can call and book for the services or you can book them directly on the website. All the services with the prices are listed on their website which you can choose from. They have a vast range of services which includes Beauty, Hair, Spa, Nails and Bridal. I chose the Spa Manicure and Pedicure with Lavender Flavour because I love the scent! I selected the time and day and my booking was confirmed.
On the day of the booking, they called me up to confirm the appointment once again and also to inform that a male artist was coming up and if I was okay with that. I had no issues and I said okay and the artist arrived well on time. He had a black travel bag in his hands which had the logo of the company MyGlamm.
The boy was well behaved and well mannered. He was polite and asked me that he needed only water and a small chair or anything that he can sit on. He did his set up for the pedicure with which the service started. A waterproof mat was placed on the floor in case the water spills. He informed me that the complete service will take approximately 2 hours so he gave me a Lavender tea bag to sit back and relax and lighted up a candle of the same scent. It created a spa-like environment at home which I really enjoyed.
The boy started with his service by dipping my feet in the warm water and constantly checking with me if the water was not too hot or the pressure of his hands wasn’t too much. He started by removing the existing nail paint that I had on my toes and then followed by filing. He also asked me about what shape I wanted to which I responded, round. After filing of nails was over he then started by applying the cuticle cream and cleaned and buffed my nails and skin around them. Then both my feet were dipped in the warm water for about 10 minutes and after that, he scraped off the dead top layer of my nails and then brushed them off.
Then the scrubbing of the legs followed. He scrubbed my legs right below the knees and feet nicely with a scrub that came with the kit and then scrubbed the dead skin of my sole and heels using a pumice stone and foot file. He then clipped off the dead skin around the nails and applied a foot mask for around 10-15 minutes till it dried up. Once the mask was dry he washed and wiped it up using the disposable sheet tissues and then massaged my legs and feet for about 10 minutes using optimum pressure and focusing on different points that relaxed my feet and legs and this concluded the pedicure.
Absolutely the same procedure was used for Manicure, the only difference was that there was a bowl to dip my hands in instead of any big electronic tub. He did have a water heater along in which he warmed up the water for Manicure. The same steps of filing, cuticle cream, scraping and buffing the nails, brushing them off, scrub, mask and massage was followed on my hands and arms as well.
I was left with beautiful feet and hands after the service, so soft and clean that I could never imagine and that is why I wanted to get a Manicure and Pedicure especially in winters because my skin is extremely dry and winters make it worse. This was a very relaxing and comfortable service. I was in the comfort of my home and had no problem with the time or worry of going out to get things done. The boy whose name was Shivam Kumar made the experience even better, such a simple and well-mannered boy.
