It was my Xpose pal, Lisa Cannon, who told me I just had to go and check out the Clara Hand & Foot Spa in Blackrock, as she had the most amazing pedicure there.
Then a few more peeps started singing the praises of Justyna, the proprietor, so I had to take my pig's trotters there to see for myself, and hoped to come out with feet like Miranda Kerr, right.
I decided to have the Signature Pedicure, €50, which was designed by Justyna following years of experience working with feet.
This pedicure, which lasts an hour, involves using argan oil and coconut oil – which work amazingly well, even with very sensitive skin.
Then there is a very hi-tech sanding machine . . . It's not as bad as it sounds!
Justyna told me she can work magic on dry, cracked, calloused, hard-skinned feet – especially when they are so far gone that no shoes are comfortable enough, because they hurt, and no product gives proper relief because the skin is just too hard.
I have to say that my pedicure left my feet feeling smoother and lighter, with no hard skin or cracks.
All I want to do is show them off now – but it's still a bit too early to go around in sandals, sadly!
If you fancy some Kardashian-style lash extensions, with weightless eyelashes and the highest grade of non-fuming and non-irritating medical glue – these can be used on very sensitive eyes and last up to one month – then you can have that done here, too.
