I always feel quite embarrassed whenever I go for pedicure or foot spa because all the manicurists will definitely passed remarks about ONE thing. Yes, I have severely cracked heels and calluses so thick that I am so embarrassed to show my feet sometimes. I feel bad to see the manicurist having such a hard time and expending so much energy trying to scrape off the hardened skin, some even use a blade to cut it off for me.
Because manicure and pedicure is more than just nail art — it’s about professional skin care to revitalize dry hands and soothes tired feet — men should go for regular manicure and pedicure as well. My husband also did a Gentleman’s classic manicure and foot spa with me this time.
Here is my first amateur video of my experience at Bejeweled:
The manicurist at Bejeweled had advised against using a blade to cut off the calluses as it would cause the skin to grow back thicker than before, similar to shaving your underarms I guess.
Bejeweled uses premium facial products and I had a rejuvenating Vagheggi Italian facial here recently and this time round I am back to do the gel manicure and foot spa.
Bejeweled uses high quality, natural and organic BCL Spa products, the first brand in the industry to introduce certified organic ingredients into a complete manicure and pedicure spa system.
• Lavender & Mint,
• Lemongrass & Green Tea
• Mandarin & Mango
• White Radiance (whitening)
The most notable one is the BCL White Radiance (Whitening) Spa which uses a patented formula of Volcanic Silt, Pearl, Kojic Acid, Milk, Ginseng and Rice Water to even out hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and other imperfections due to aging.
In a constant effort to make their products safer, BCL had developed a Callus Exfoliator to hydrate and soften the skin without the chemicals usually found it other callus removal products.
The BCL SPA system consists of 4 simple steps:
• Dead Sea Salt Soak cleanses and softens the skin.
• Sugar Scrub gently exfoliates and moisturizes the skin, leaving it soft and silky.
• Moisture Mask restores the skin’s natural hydration and deeply nourishes the skin.
• Massage Cream heals, conditions and regenerates the skin, leaving it smooth and hydrated.
Well, I had initially wanted to do the White Radiance spa but because of my calluses, the manicurist suggested that I do the Callus Treatment ($45) instead to address the problem first, which I agreed.
I like the design as it look so stylish, classic and simple. Of course, if you prefer a complicated design and can maintain your gel manicure in good condition longer (depending on your job nature) and have more time to sit in the nail salon, you can let the manicurist know and she will hand-drawn the design for you meticulously.
As you can see from my video, this new outlet at BreadTalk IHQ is bright and spacious with 2 facials rooms to make you feel really comfortable and relaxed. Having been to Bejeweled twice to try two different services, I felt really pampered and luxurious with the service rendered by the staff who are always professional and friendly.
During both occasions, I happened to buy cakes and ice cream and they would gladly help me put my food items in their mini fridge, at the expense of having to take out their own food. My husband commented that he thoroughly enjoyed the spa treatment and classic manicure at Bejeweled too.
