"It is time to get some beauty! ... but calm and slooow, please.
As mummies we know how difficult it can be to take some time for ourselves. And if we do so, we want to enjoy a superb break from everyday's life. Yes, everything should be perfect in sense of "just being happy with our choice, so we can totally relax and let the energy flow" ...
As we just jumped into spring, a loud inner voice is screaming for a refreshing "make-over": Face, hands, feet! YEAH. Need it!
The first time I went to this little Beauty Gem in the little beautiful street C/ Carme, 3, in Palma de Mallorca Old Town, was in February before my trip to Thailand. I booked “Colour on the GO” and it was sooo goood:
I loved the chair I was sitting in, super comfy.
They served me a delicious tea, while I was receiving a foot cleaning & massage.
I left with my favourite colour on hands and feet, with natural eco friendly nail polish.
CALM SLOW BEAUTY absolutely deserves recognition: If YOU want to get good vibes during a beauty treatment with eco friendly products, where you really calm down, THIS IS THE PLACE.
And before I get my fully Spring-Make-Over-Fresh-Up-Treatment, I introduce you to meet the founder of CALM SLOW BEAUTY: Rosario Crespillo.
Who are you, Rosario?
I am originally from Granada, Andalusia (Spain). I have lived for 19 years in Madrid and came to Mallorca two years ago. My husband was already working on the island for more than six years, so me and the children followed him...
I am licensed in Economy Science and graduated in Library Science and Documentation. But the biggest part of my professional career, I have spent working for the headquarter of Vodafone Spain, leading projects of on a large scale.
Personally, I have great passion for cooking, decorating, the world of beauty and fashion, and I love to explore new places, to experience gastronomic delights.
I am living a healthy life, and the world of beauty has always been very important for me. In my opinion it is important to take care of one's beauty, from inside to outside. That's why I chose this new project for myself: I founded a small Beauty Salon which is based on natural and healthy beauty products, a new episode of my life.
How did you come up with the idea of CALM SLOW BEAUTY?
It arose from my personal needs. Living such an intensive way in a city as big as Madrid and being a working mum, never allowed me to have enough time for myself. So when I arrived on the island, my main focus was to take more care of myself. I was looking for a service of beauty treatments, that would give me the sensation and experience of feeling beautiful inside and outside. But I never found a place or beauty salon that offers a combination od certified products, which are organic and natural, and has a careful service and space to allow me to relax and unwind, to take a break and dedicate time to myself. Therefore, I decided to start the adventure of CALM SLOW BEAUTY.
What is so special about your Beauty Salon?
The simplicity and harmony of the interior, combined with organic, natural products of highest quality, allow us to offer a customized service in each of our treatments. I like to emphasise the care we have put in every detail of the salon, inspired by colors that reflect the essence of Mallorca, so that our clientes enjoy a pure, fresh and pleasant stay. ... a SLOW space, where time is not the most important, but oneself.
Among our products, we work only with brands of non-toxic nail varnish, highlighting the ones that are suitable for pregnant women, people with allergies and kids/ teenagers - cosmetics that are organic and cruelty-free, BIO certified, vegan and fair trade for personal care.
Last, but not least, I like to mention that all our utensils that we use in the services are completely sterilized, avoiding any risks.
Which one is your personal favorite treatment?
It is difficult to have only one favorite treatment at CALM SLOW BEAUTY, but I will tell you my three beloved ones: first of all the pedicures, coming with a massage which make you close your eyes and feeling wonderfully pampered, and finishing with non-toxic enamels which will beautify your feets.
In the second place is our organic facial hygiene, where you feel like your skin is renewed in a natural and pure way with the use of our cosmetics. And finally our Aroma-Massage of 60 minutes, from head to toe. ;-)
What is the most booked treatment? The Best Seller?
It depends on the season. During the autumn-winter, we mostly do vegan manicures and organic facial treatments. During the spring-summer, mostly vegan manicure and pedicure, as well as natural waxing and massages.
Why did you decide to establish your beauty center in the old town of Palma?
Because its streets are magical, they can carry you to another epoch back in time, where stress and hastle did not exist. Our neighborhood is quite resurfacing, with new shops that invite you to stroll through the streets, discover sophisticated commercial concepts and enjoy shopping experiences within a historical and unique framework.
