Beauty & Butter Hand and Foot Paraffin + Official Launch

To relieve my tired hands and feet from standing long hours during make up gigs, I decided to get a hand and foot paraffin + Manicure and Pedicure at my favorite pamper place: Beauty & Butter! :)

The hand and foot paraffin is the perfect treatment to relax those tired hands and feet. The friendly buttercups begin with cleansing both hands and feet then use a scrub that take out some dead skin. After this, the actual dipping in the paraffin wax happens.

On to my hands, Beauty and Butter uses a different colored paraffin for the hands and feet. For the feet they used a greenish-clear color while for the hands they used a white paraffin color. :)

About to be dipped :)

Fully Dipped :)

Both hands and feet were dipped at least 3-4 times each in 3 second intervals. Each dip lasted at least 1 second. The immediate heat felt from the dip in the paraffin was love. My hands and feet felt so relaxed as each dip happened. I wouldn't say that the heat is unbearable because the temperatures were just right to make sure no burns happen. :)

After the dips, both hands and feet are wrapped in plastic then rested inside towel pouches for a good 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, the wax is peeled of and immediately I felt how smooth both my hands and feet were! :)

It felt as if I had been using moisturizer 20 times for that day alone. They were that soft. My hands and feet looked so healthy. :)

Immediately after, I got a regular manicure and pedicure and chose a vampy red color. :) I love Beauty & Butter nail polishes, they last a good 2 weeks for me. If you look at the pictures above, that was what I had first done at Beauty and Butter and it lasted that long. :)


Later in the evening, Beauty and Butter had their official launch at the Mega Atrium. There were lots of food, press and happy guests as celebrities like Richard Guttierez, Alyssa Alano and Fabio Ide graced the event with their presence. Beauty and Butter endorser Pop Girls also sang a few songs. :) Congratulations Beauty and Butter! :)

  7. No doubt, running bad credit is a worse tag that none wants to carry on. But it is another truth about the fiscal issue that people fall into bad credit score due to lots of problems and non-repaying issue.
