Kundalini Rising

Happy Valley in Hong Kong has become a bit of a wellness haven, ever since Bodywize launched its first spa there. I’ve never tried any of their treatments. So this is a first, and I’m pleasantly surprised when I step into the Retreat spa, which is just around the corner from its other location. I’m greeted with hot tea and quickly feel at ease as soon as I walk through the door.

Nurturing Journey

Imagine camping in a tent with comfy mattresses and lush beddings while basking underneath the starry sky and roasting healthy food by a bonfire with your loved ones – isn’t that the perfect way to escape from the hectic city life? Now you can do just that in the form of glamping at the multi-award-winning Nurture Wellness Village.

Flawless Face

Owning the perfect complexion shouldn’t be just a dream, no matter how old you are. Dior’s Dream Skin works on both the surface and deep down to achieve instantly visible results while working to improve the texture of the skin. Active ingredients include mineral powder that creates a smooth and radiating appearance and the Longoza extract that penetrates deeper layers to target the skin’s stem cells, stimulating and plumping wrinkles.

Natural Bliss

Located on the exotic Papagayo Peninsula, the new ONDA SPA is a natural oasis of relaxation within the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo. Occupying a sprawling 11,000-sq- ft space, the spa boasts nine treatment rooms, two of which are outdoors with sweeping vistas of the tropical forest and sea, and a 24-hour fitness centre. Guests will find here an array of personalised therapeutic treatments, such as massages, facials, body wraps and exfoliations, which utilise the healing power of water and natural local ingredients.

Queen B

Chantecaille once again finds itself the advocate of a beautiful creature that is living on the edge of extinction. The beauty and skincare brand’s Save the Bees palette features glowing honey shades for the eyes and a sweet rosy blush for the cheeks.

Fashionably Smooth
