Let me introduce you to the ultimate luxury, getting a mani/pedi and massage in your own home! 1608 Mobile Beauty Service – exclusive to Durban!
1608 Beauty on Demand launched in Durban in December last year. They’re pretty much brand new, but the small business is run by Yaseera who is experienced in the industry. Also, her lovely beauty therapists are plucked from hotels and spas around the KZN area so you know they know what they’re doing.
I must say, there have been quite a few mobile beauty service businesses popping up in Durban and I am a big fan. I can’t say I am too fond of going for a spa treatment in a mall – who wants to be seen after a facial, a wax, or a relaxing massage?
There’s an awesome giveaway at the end of this post so make sure to enter if you would like to WIN an OPI Pamper Pedi at your home!
Before I get into the review of my experience, let me tell you a little bit more about 1608 Beauty on Demand. Their services include:
- Home Visits
- Pamper Parties
- In-office Express Treatments
- Corporate Events
- Kids Spa Parties
Their treatments range from manis and pedis, to hair styling, makeup and massages. They also offer threading and waxes, that is the next service I will be getting as I hate going for a bikini wax at a salon!
How fabulous is this set up? We made some space between by lounge and dining room, pumped up the aircon (it was so hot that day) and got going with my OPI Pamper Pedi and Neck/Back/Head Massage. I love how they bought pretty much everything they could need, what’s the point of a mobile beauty service if they end up having to use all of your furniture for the set-up?
Samke and Zamoh were attentive to my needs, light-medium pressure for my massage and hard on my feet, friendly and great at what they do! They both come from a spa at an Umhlanga hotel so I was happy knowing they had experience working for an establishment that expects high standards.
Despite the set up being in my home, they made it as spa-like as possible, I love that they bought the OPI stand for the polishes, their own soft & fluffy towels and their storage ottomans were perfect to use as a makeshift table for the products.
I am very happy with the service, I can be a fussy AF customer when it comes to treatments, especially massages, so I really do feel that if you had to request these ladies through 1608 you will be looked after very well.
I’m not usually an OPI Nail Lacquer fan, but the colours in the Lisbon Collection are stunning for summer!
Thank you to Samke and Zamoh for the wonderful treatments and chats 🙂
