The Basics: It’s always said that the age of 25 is when the quality of your skin begins to go downhill. Hoping to remove fine lines on my face and enhance skin elasticity, I opted for the Signature Fresh Collagen Infusion Facial, one of the signature treatments at award-winning spa stalwarts Sense of Touch, which works to infuse pure collagen into the skin. This treatment features the latest products from their eponymous skincare line launched last year, Sense of Touch Laboratories.

The Experience: Before the facial began, my therapist applied soothing essential oils to the face and neck with a gentle massage. It started with a two-step cleansing process to thoroughly clean off any residue and oil off my face. This was followed by a fruit enzyme exfoliation process which helped slough off dead skin cells, followed up by aloe vera gel to calm and soothe the skin. After that, I had a fantastic and gently relaxing neck and shoulder massage. The facial rounded off with a thick, jelly-like fresh collagen mask which was left to set for about 15-20 minutes.

The Takeaway: A solid, basic cleansing treatment with some immediately visible results. My skin looked firmer and plumped up, and I could notice right away that even the fine lines around my eyes were softly reduced too. A very relaxing mid-month pick-me-up!

Signature Fresh Collagen Infusion Facial, $1,180/80 minutes. Available at all Sense of Touch spas, including 1-5F, 52 D’Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central, 2526-6918,
