I chose a cleansing and rejuvenating facial treatment. All I can say is it was a must have wonderful experience. My forehead a had some acne that wouldn’t go away. My skin also felt very dry.

These are the Israel products that the salon uses.

My skin was first cleansed. What followed, was a scrub that I have to say did itch for a few minutes. Here, Vivian is brushing it on. She told me not to worry, that the sensation would go away, and it really did.

So relaxing!

So relaxing!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During a facial treatment, the first thing that is done is to remove the blackheads and pimples. What followed was something I have never experienced and was quite impressed.

A cheesecloth with eyes and a mouth was cut out and placed over my face. After it was taken off, Vivian used a small instrument to zap my pimples. It had a buzzing sound. I really didn’t understand what it was for but a few days after the treatment, I saw my few zits on my forehead, which didn’t seem like they were ever going to go away, disappeared!!

What followed was sheer pleasure. A cold mask made of cheese was spread all over my face. It felt wonderful and the smell was divine. My face was cleansed again, and another mask was put on. While waiting for the mask to dry, Vivian massaged my back and neck. Afterward, I received her very own Reiki treatment. I had no idea what it was and never experienced it before. It was amazing! She put her hands over my hands, heart, and arms and I felt heat. Although her hands were not touching me, I felt the heat coming from her hands. It was that powerful!

After my skin was cleansed, Vivian shaped my eyebrows.

Vivian also shaped my nails because they were breaking and I chose a very pretty orange color for Spring.

An Upscale Nail Salon in Trendy Tel Aviv

photo 2I would like to share with you a very memorable manicure experience that I endured in Tel Aviv at a very chic nail salon named French. French is located on 25 Aleph Rechov Melchet, right next to the one of Tel Aviv’s notorious fashion high end streets, Rechov Shenkin.

French reminded me of the nail salons I used to go to when I lived in London. Once I walked in, I knew that I was in the right place. I can’t explain it, but I just knew. It had the air of quality. The floors were spotless. The decor was simple. Cream walls, cream floors. There was French music softly playing the background. A spa type smell was floating in the air. I felt so relaxed and already sensed the experience would be one of a kind. The clientele looked very classy and stylish.

Magnificent Manicures

1017527_684319324915423_298729275_nI don’t know about you but I used to love getting my weekly manicures when I was living in NJ.

In my neck of the woods, there are nail salons popping up on every corner. Not in Jerusalem. You have to be pretty lucky to find a good address. When I immigrated to Israel five years ago, I searched everywhere for a clean friendly salon carrying the latest nail varnishes or at least fashionable colors besides red and orange.  After playing detective, I did find that most of the hair salons have their own manicurist/beautician. But you pay higher prices than the norm for the service.

I searched and searched and found a gem. Tamara Beauty Clinic is located on 18 Rechov Hillel in Jerusalem’s center of town. The owner is Jenny, a graduate of the Cosmetica Bet Sefer School, who has been a beautician since 2002.

which color are you going to choose?Upon entering the small salon, I felt like I was in nail polish heaven. Rows of colors from notorious brands such as OPI, Essie, Chanel, Dior, and others cover the walls. Coffee or tea is offered. It’s a very friendly atmosphere. The salon is always busy so make sure you call and book ahead.   050-8803-755. Jenny gets locals, tourists mostly from Paris and the United States as well as students.
