Spa Review: My morning at Mona Lisa Skin and Body Bar in Clifton

I won’t lie… I love being a blogger. Little did I realise when I started this hobby over 4 years ago that there would be so many amazing opportunities and treats available to me down the line! I am truly grateful for each and every one, but today’s post is one of my favourites…. An amazing indulgent morning spent enjoying a QMS facial at Mona Lisa Skin & Body Bar in Camps Bay!

Now I’ve had a QMS facial before so I didn’t have to be asked twice if I would like to enjoy another one… the answer is always YES. A QMS facial is one of the very best I have experienced and I adore them!

I arrived at the tranquil, private Mona Lisa Skin and Body Bar located at a private home in Clifton (with an amazing view!), excited to spend a few hours relaxing and pampering my skin with some of the very best skin care products in the world!

I was met by the owner and beauty therapist of Mona Lisa Skin and Body Bar, Lisa-marie, and immediately knew I would be in good hands. Lisa-marie is professional, personable and passionate about good skin care (as is evident by the fact that she stocks QMS!!) I loved meeting her and we had a lovely time chatting over a pedicure prior to my facial. She clearly has a lot of experience and knows exactly how to put clients at ease with her knowledge and enthusiasm for meeting your specific skin care needs!

I lay down confident that I would walk out looking amazing…. And of course the results were great. My skin looked radiant and rested, clear and calm, plump and pampered!! I have sung the praises of the QMS facial before and I can’t recommend it highly enough! For more info on what a QMS facial entails read my previous post here:

Here is my “After” glow….

If you feel you need to spend a little bit of time out indulging yourself or want to treat your skin to the awesomeness that is QMS then make an appointment to see Lisa-marie at Mona Lisa. I highly recommend this little gem of a spa as it’s wonderfully private and really restful – no other clients around – just you and Lisa-marie. If I lived on that side of the mountain I would make this my local beauty salon… And with the reasonable prices on offer, from R450 for a QMS facial, I just might!
