White Room spa review: Marina Plaza
The White Room Spa concept is very simple! They focus on a pure white calming theme with the utmost attention to cleanliness and hygiene. They offer an variety of beauty treatments at an affordable price.
Below are are a few images of the salon, located in Marina Plaza, next to Marina Mall:
I visited the salon last months for a leg wax and foot paraffin treatment (to get rid of all my dead skin on my feet!)
The spa itself is located next to Marina Mall, Which is super convenient, I parked in the mall, did a few chores and then exited the mall by H&M, walked over the bridge to the Plaza and their the spa is on the right as you enter – a hidden jem in the heart of the Marina.
As you can see form the images above the spa is ever so chic – for the entrance to one of the treatment rooms is the below door – I felt like I had just arrived at salon in Greece and was miles away form the hustle and bustle of the Marina!
Obviously you all know what a wax is and how it feels, so im to going to talk about the Paraffin treatment that I had for my feet instead, as this was a treatment I had not had before and was intrigued!
A paraffin wax “dip” or “bath”
A soothing treatment in which the feet are submerged in a warm mixture of paraffin, a petroleum-based wax, and mineral oil. This warming treatment soothes aching joints and improves circulation, and the combination of oil and wax softens rough skin.
How It Works
The wax, solid at room temperature, is heated to between 123 and 125 degrees in a foot bath. The feet are then submerged, either one at a time or together. After a few seconds, the feet are removed from the bath and the wax hardens slightly when it hits room temperature air. The feet are dipped three to six more times to form a thick layer of wax, and then allowed to dry for 10 to 15 minutes. The wax is then peeled or rubbed away and the used wax is discarded.
Step one: Place feet in paraffin bath
Step two: Cover and let the wax harden over feet
Step 3: Remove and enjoy super soft skin!
