Lulu came from the Greek word meaning, “Clean”. You may wonder how the place got its name? (Maybe all the while you thought the owner name is “Lulu”)
Lulu Nail Spa and Massage is located at Victoria Avenue, New Manila. Victoria Avenue – is the road across St. Luke’s Medical Center Quezon City, between Max’s restaurant and 7/11 E. Rodriguez. Just go straight ahead, it is beside Metropole laundry shop. Opening hours from 12NN to 9PM and they are close on Mondays. The place is very convenient for me because I live around E.Rodriguez Quezon City (So I am calling all my E.rod friends to come and drop by the place).
You’ll be greeted by the friendly staff and they attend to your inquiries as well. Jeanne (blogger friend) and I really appreciated to that they stayed a bit longer even their working hours were over but they still continued to finish the services we selected. We arrived around 8pm that’s why.
The first thing, I really liked and noticed is their lazy boy couches, which is a plus for me. The ambiance is relaxing – dim lighting and yes, coming from what LULU means, it was clean. The place kinda brings this Japanese or Asian vibe because of the lamps , the design on the walls and some of their displays as well.
I tried their Manicure PHP 180 : with polish and Pedicure PHP 250 with polish (filed, buffed and round shape).They have a wide selection of nail polishes of different colors and they have known nail polish brands such as Chanel, YSL, Dior, Orly, Opi, Seche Vite – I think there is an additional charge for the branded ones. A Package of both mani and pedi cost PHP 400. I really liked how the nail specialist did my nails both on my hands and feet- gentle and neatly done.
The Footspa PHP 350, was very relaxing and the ingredients used such as Scrub, Musk, Butter, Cleanser and Oil smelled SOOO good. After applying everything they wrapped my lower leg with plastic wrap and waited on it for a few minutes so everything could be absorbed. Then after came with a relaxing massage (always preferred mine – SOFT PRESSURE)
The Hand Paraffin therapy PHP 300, the thing that I could comment on, is that the pre-temp of the wax was really hot at first – I had previous hand paraffin therapy sessions before with other spas but I wasn’t able to tolerate it that time. They staff were so kind, they offered to fan it while the wax was being poured on my left hand. When it came to the other hand, the temperature of the wax was just right – hot in a good way that I wanted it. Paraffin therapy is not recommended with those with very sensitive and very thin/fragile skin. The reason why I go for paraffin therapy is that is prevents and lessen “pasma” (sweating of hands) and it moisturizes my hands as well. I mostly do it on my hands. After the wax gets hard, they wrapped my hands with plastic wrap and placed on mittens (like a baby) then wait on it for a few minutes.
Lulu also offers massages. The second floor is primarily for body massages and they have 3 divisions upstairs.
