I can say with an absolutely straight face that I am low maintenance. Now before my husband collapses into a heap on the floor let me qualify that statement - I am low maintenance when it comes to my appearance. Not in a dirty hair, no makeup kind of way, but rather in a let's-do-what's-easiest kind of way. And when I do take time to spoil myself a bit - be it a facial, manicure or massage - I loathe those large and informal spas and salons, where you swan around in a gown in front of total strangers whilst nervously sipping on your flavoured water. Which is why I was thrilled to discover Mona Lisa Skin & Body Bar - an intimate spot that offers fab service and caters to the busy 21st century woman.

Mona Lisa Skin & Body Bar is a one-woman show - Lisa-marie opened the spa in an available space located at the back of a private residence in Clifton, and offers her clients a very personal setting where you get her undivided attention. After she completed her training Lisa-marie worked in a number of spas before deciding to go it alone, which means she is able to offer an extensive number of treatments, including massage, facials, body wraps, waxing and tinting, and manis and pedis. I spent some time chatting to Lisa-marie whilst she did my manicure and it became clear that her focus is very much on her clients. I was particularly impressed to hear that she is able to accommodate appointments after hours to suit those clients who work, and that she often has returning international clients who make a point of seeing her when they are visiting Cape Town.

Her treatment area is situated in a separate two room building at the back of the house, which you access via a side gate. There is a lovely covered outdoor area with seating which can host a bridal party or group of friends. Lisa-marie offers guests complimentary water, tea and coffee, and you may even be on the receiving end of freshly baked muffins. The treatment room is welcoming and spacious with a comfy couch for clients to recline on whilst having their nails done, and a bathroom area where clients can change. I loved my manicure (which lasted well past the usual 1 week period), and was thrilled with the Essie colour range on offer; Lisa-marie also has a lovely selection of CND Shellac Power Polishes available for those wanting a gel finish. Lisa-marie was also very excited by the recent addition of the !QMSMedicosmetics range to her beauty arsenal - this anti-ageing product focuses on tackling that age-old problem - the loss of collagen - and Lisa-marie has already seen fabulous results in her own client base. And what I love most is that Mona Lisa Skin & Body Bar's prices are kept below standard spa rates - that coupled with the incredibly professional yet friendly service on offer makes it a winner.

Lisa-marie also puts together fabulous specials, like her recent Valentine's month offering of a Pedicure, Calf and Foot Massage and complimentary glass of champagne for R260. Make sure you check out her website for her full treatment list and to make a booking, of course.
