bluRain Salon & Spa Review:

This salon is located in Karachi, Pakistan. 

It was my first ever visit to bluRain today. After all the great reviews I read about it, I was very tempted. 
So I decided to go for one of their facials (since their facials are the most-talked-about). I chose their Glow Facial for Combination Skin type. Also I got face threading and Basic Manicure & Pedicure. 
As I reached I was first taken for threading. It was good. This girl named Sumera ( I think) did my threading and she listened to what I wanted and I was satisfied. Next I was told that I'll have to go for the facial. Since it was my first visit I was unaware of the fact that their facials are done in the other separate part of the salon which is on the first floor of the building. I was accompanied by one of their workers to the first floor where the other part of the salon is located. Honestly this was a bit turn off for me. Anyways then I was seated and given a form to fill which had details like name, contact number, mailing address, skin texture, pigmentation etc. I think the form is to be filled by all the new clients. Then proceeding further I was taken to this room where I changed and then their Aesthetician showed up and checked my skin with this magnifying glass and she proceeded with my facial. This lady is SUPER kind and an amazing person. Throughout my facial she kept talking to me and kept advising me on how to maintain a good skin care routine, what to use what not to use. She is someone who believes in spreading her knowledge and I found this thing extremely good about her. Also during the latter half of my facial, this other worker there gave me a good/relaxing feet & hand oil massage. It is later that I got to know that it was complimentary. With every facial/cleansing you get a complimentary feet & hand oil massage. A plus point indeed! :D
I was done with my facial in an hour and then I had to go down again to the salon for my other services. I then had my Manicure & Pedicure done. This lady named Soniya did my mani and Aqsa did my pedi and both were SO friendly and humble. They kept asking me throughout if everything was fine. Also, I was asked a multiple times for coffee or tea and then was served tea (which was also good :p) 
Finally I was done with everything and it was time for the payment. I decided to pay via credit card. They tried charging the card but couldn't get through. This lady there told me that she tried it multiple times but probably the network was down or something & they couldn't charge it. Not that it's a very big problem but it was kinda turn off since I confirmed with them on the phone that I'd pay via credit card and they didn't object or anything and because of which I did not carry enough cash. Since I live nearby I called up and told my driver to get cash. But I think they should look into this, since a lot of people don't usually carry cash plus not everybody lives nearby. So to avoid any uncalled-for situation their card machine should be working all the time. Other than this I had an amazing time at bluRain today. The staff is SO SO humble and I was glad to see this. They keep smiling and they keep asking you for coffee/tea and if every thing's fine, so thumbs-up to that! 

Now the ratings:
Facial 5/5
Manicure, Pedicure 5/5
Hygiene, Ambiance 5/5
Overall: 9/10 ( deducting 0.5 for the card machine malfunction and 0.5 for the facials being conducted in the other part of the salon located separately on the first floor of the building).
