If you are one of those people who tend to avoid facials for fear of possible reactions, then the Julisis Biorhythm Facial (HK$1,750 to HK$3,780) at The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, in Central, is designed for you. Akin to a soothing massage, this gentle treatment involves no extraction or exfoliation, focusing instead on cleansing and moisturising with a series of products from German brand Julisis.
The procedure begins with a calming breathing exercise and a mini meditation session. We recommend booking with Shyju, a long-time Ayurveda practitioner and one of the spa’s top therapists.
Multitaskers can’t go wrong with the Pedi: Facial Transformation (HK$2,400/60 minutes) at The Oriental Spa at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, in Central, which combines a signature pedicure from podiatrist to the stars Bastien Gonzalez (try to book Hong Kong’s favourite therapist Albin, if you can), with an intensive face treatment delivered with a hi-tech machine from German company Seyo.
The facial begins with a thorough cleansing, followed by a gentle exfoliation performed with a sapphire-coated tool. It ends with a soothing mask but only after the Seyo machine propels a hydrating serum all over your skin.
The Super-Lift Haute Couture Facial (HK$3,350/90 minutes), offered at The Peninsula hotel, in Tsim Sha Tsui, uses products from Swiss brand Margy’s Monte Carlo, a favourite of the Moroccan royal family. It boosts collagen production by providing the skin with ample water.
After a deep cleanse including extraction to remove blackheads, the therapist applies algae patches, which dissolve into the skin. This is followed by a hydrating serum, a massage to ensure the formula is completely absorbed and a Brightness Revealing Mask.
The therapist’s skilful touch slims the face, giving it a more defined jawline. The treatment should leave you with softer, smoother skin.
