MiniLuxe Boston -- located at 296 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02115 (call for an appt 857-362-7444)
I love being pampered just as much as the next girl. Especially this time of year when the weather is miserable and my skin is super dry. So when MiniLuxe invited me into their Newbury Street location for a warm oil mani and pedi, I nearly screamed with happiness.
As soon as I walked in I was warmly greeted by the receptionist. The ultra clean and trendy salon was bustling with Saturday afternoon activity but I was promptly approached by the sweetest technician I've ever encountered. The warm oil mani and pedi are like your typical manicure and pedicure but instead of getting a quick slap of lotion massaged into your skin, you are treated to an extended massage with warm, soothing oil that leaves your skin feeling soft and luxurious. I could have easily fallen asleep I was so relaxed -- especially during the pedicure. And for someone who is as tightly wound as I am, that's saying a lot.
MiniLuxe also offers facials (at the Wellesley location only) and waxing, as well as an entire wall full of their wonderful products and the cutest gifts. I am kicking myself for not picking up some of the Creme Brulee lip scrub -- it's heavenly and does wonders for cracked winter lips.
|I loved their huge selection of my favorites -- OPI, Essie, & Zoya to name a few.|
|I ended up with Essie "Bobbing for Baubles" on my fingers and "Over the Top" on my tootsies|
If you're in need of a mid-winter treat, definitely head to MiniLuxe. A quick mani/pedi or facial is just what the doctor ordered to fight cold weather depression. You won't be disappointed!
