Glow Medi Spa introduces their new Beauty Bar!

You've heard me talk about Glow Medi Spa before as a great place for medi treatments and now it's your one-stop beautifier with the addition of Beauty Bar and Spa services!

I'm always ready to get my Glow on so I went for a Medical Manicure and Pedicure - having these services deemed "medical" sounded interesting as mani/pedis seem to be pretty standard everywhere.

What I discovered is that the Medical Pedicure was pioneered by Margaret Dobbs, a podiatrist and founder of the pedicure and the line of products used for it. What makes it different is that you don't start this pedicure with your feet soaking in a basin of water, it's done dry with no water being involved until it's time to wash off the scrub - which isn't your usual scrub at all but my favourite product from the experience - an Exfoliating Foot Mousse!

They do the usual foot filing dry that is normally done wet and because it's dry you can see all the dead skin coming off your feet while is gross but also strangely compelling - and the reason it's done dry is because you get a more even exfoliation that way which is better for your feet.

The Margaret Dabbs products key ingredients include Australian Organic Emu Oil, Lemon Myrtle and Tea Trea Oil and a great way to try them out is with the Margaret Dabbs Footcare Discovery Kit - $58 - which includes a 50ml Intensive Hydrating Foot Lotion, 50ml Hydrating Foot Soak, 30ml Intensive Treatment Foot Oil and 30ml Exfoliating Foot Mousse.

The manicure also didn't involve any soaking in water and by my nails not being wet, my nail polish seems to have adhered better and is lasting longer...

Don't you love this sparkly black Rococo Nail Apparel Space Invaders shade?!
