Facial & Indian Head Massage at 4 Angels Beauty Care Inc.

Yesterday, I took up local business 4 Angels Beauty Care Inc. on their invite to come in and "treat [myself] to something heavenly." I have been feeling a bit stressed lately, so I opted for a combination of an Illu-Mini Facial ($30) and Indian Head Massage ($35).


After being introduced to Navkiran, one of the friendly co-owners, she sat me down in one of their comfy salon-style chairs and got to work. 4 Angels uses France Laure products for all of their facials, picking out individual products suited to your skin. My skin tone was a bit uneven so Navkiran decided to use an exfoliating peel to even it out and improve the texture. There are no extractions involved as it's just a mini facial but it would be perfect for a quick lunchtime pick-me-up if you work in the area.

Next was the Indian Head Massage, which was a new experience for me. Using your choice of oil (I chose olive oil), this traditional massage is intended to increase circulation and encourage mental alertness while leaving hair shiny and stimulating hair growth. It starting out quite fast (a little strange but not uncomfortable) before slowing down to a more relaxing sensation. You probably wouldn't want to get this done before needing to go out somewhere, however, as the oil does leave your hair greasy and must stay on for 1-2 hours.


In addition to the treatments I received, 4 Angels specializes in brow threading and waxing but also offers a range of other unique services such as sari wrapping and henna. Plus, there's always a little something extra thrown in, like a relaxing massage, for busy women (or men) who need a bit of pampering.
