I’m a Mo’na Lover

Those who are following me on Instagram probably noticed this picture I posted yesterday. My makeup was on point thanks to Mo’na.  I felt so pretty afterwards, a special thanks goes out to the lovely Sofie Fiers from JAX PR and of course to the entire Mo’na team.  I went to the official opening of their brand new spa. Read on to know more about this nice experience @  Mo’na in Mechelen.

Mo'na Mechelen

Mo’na is a beauty hotspot and hairdresser in Mechelen. Stijn Pellegrims, The founder Of Mo’na, has been a freelance hairstylist for quite some years and he founded Mo’na 11 years ago. Since 3 years they are located in this impressive building at the Korenmarkt in Mechelen.  Mo’na refers to ‘more nature‘, all the different treatments are 100 % natural. This whole nature philosophy is something Aveda is also known for, that’s the reason why Mo’na uses Aveda products in all kinds of treatments.

I immediately sensed a certain vibe when I arrived .  In our ever increasing busy lifes it’s nice to have a little ‘escape moment’. That’s what Mo’na is all about: offering customers a total experience from the beginning until the end. I enjoyed a detox juice and one of the healthy salads from Eten Vol Leven. This was the perfect start of this wonderful day and was in line with the whole ‘natural ‘concept.  Stijn told me about Aveda en gave me a tour, I took time to discover the latest Aveda products and to take some pictures.

After the tour it was time for some relaxation.  They recently renovated the underground floor and maintained the authentic elements such as the 14th century vaults. It all feels and looks a bit mysterious, the use of warm colours on the walls in combination with mood lighting creates a cozy atmosphere. There are 2 spa rooms and a wet room where natural aromas fill the area.

One of the beauty therapists prepared a nice footbath which I truly enjoyed after a long and hectic day (driving from Leuven to Mechelen with a lot of traffic isn’t a pleasure) . After the foot bath she guided me to a separate room for a facial treatment. And oh god, loved it.  The beauty therapist was so friendly, I really enjoyed talking to her and she does have magical hands. My sensitive skin revived, I had a very healthy glow on my cheeks. During this facial treatment she used  the Tulasara radiant awakening ritual oleation oil and this product comes with a brush. I will tell you all about it in a next post. After this relaxing treatment one of the lovely girls of the Mo’na team did my makeup and I felt pretty.  Stijn and his team are so friendly, I had a great time.
