I was invited to a Milk Solutions and Jessica Polish Launch a while ago, but unfortunately I was not able to make it. Luckily, I was then invited to experience the Milk Solutions Heel Peel, as well as a Jessica Polish Pedicure at the Ms Glam Nail Bar in Parkmore. I was first introduced to Milk Solutions back in 2014, as a newbie blogger of about a year, when I was sent a few products to review. There and then, the Milk & Honey Candle, which has since been discontinued had me hooked, so when I was given the Sole Saviour Kit from the same range after my treatments, I was excited to put them to the test.
Firstly, I love the look of the salon, it is light and open, and I love the hanging chair. When I got there I asked Yvonne, the therapist who I was booked with, if it was possible for me to add a buff and polish manicure to my treatment, which I would just pay for, and luckily they weren’t too busy, so she said that while the peel was working on my feet, she could do a manicure.
The *Milk Solutions Heel Peel was not uncomfortable at all, in fact I didn’t feel anything. My feet were washed, and then the peel was applied. After a short amount of time my feet were soaked, buffed and scrubbed, and then I had the most relaxing foot massage of my baby soft feet. My toes were then painted with a gorgeous, bright and glossy red Jessica polish, and it lasted without a chip for two weeks. I am always quite weary about new polish brands, but this one really blew me away.
As I mentioned before, I managed to squeeze in a manicure too, and I chose this stunning essie shade- Angora Cardi, which I have since bought because I love love love it, it is a perfect Autumn shade. My nails were painted perfectly, something I am always so fussy about, but Yvonne did a wonderful job, completely worth the R120.
The *Milk & Honey Sole Saviours Kit contains three products to give you soft feet. My favourite has got to be the Hydrating Heel Balm, it melts into the skin, feels silky and is the perfect foot product to use before bed. I like to put on a pair of socks and let it get to work overnight. The Callus Care Cream is a runny cream to be used twice daily to reduce calluses, which I do not have since I have just had a peel. Lastly, The Softening Foot Lotion hydrates as well as exfoliates to keep feet in the best condition.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and overall it was a very pleasant experience. I have had quite a few pedicures and treatments before, and there were a few little things that made this salon truly stand out. Firstly, they had perfectly moulded plastic covers that fitted into the foot basin, which are removed after every treatment. This really impressed me from a hygiene perspective. Another hygiene plus that I have never seen before, is that Yvonne even sterilised the nail polish brush after use. Lastly, the most impressive, and the reason my mani and pedi lasted so long, is because they use the original base and top coats, (for my mani it was the essie base and top coat). Now, I know this doesn’t seem like a major thing, but believe me it is, most salons skimp on their base and top coats and use cheaper brands, as those are the two products that get finished quickest. Next time you have a mani/pedi have a look at what base and top coat your therapist is using, and you may be surprised.

This has me crying out for a pedi – my feet are long overdue, and the Gelish is growing out. Plus, I love it when my feet are freshly soft and buffed.
