Le Spa by Jan - "Treat yourself this winter at Le Spa by Jan"
A review written and published by Romy Rose Reyes for bkrm.com, 9 Nov 2015.
We found one of Hong Kong’s hidden beauty gems!
Tucked away in the streets of Central is a small but opulent spa called Le Spa by Jan. This independent spa recently celebrated its one-year anniversary and we can’t believe we didn’t find this gem sooner! With the colder months creeping in, it’s important to pay close attention to our skin and keep it from getting too dry. One way to have great looking skin that's moisturized and healthy all winter long is to incorporate a body scrub in your beauty regime. That’s where Le Spa by Jan comes in.
We headed down to the spa where we were expecting a whole body scrub and full-body aroma massage. Once you arrive, you'll be given slippers to change into and it'll make you feel right at home. It may not be a large spa but that's the great thing about it because the clean look helps create a feeling of serenity, which is what you look for at a spa.
For our body scrub treatment, they used a Polynesia signature scrub from Thalgo, a skincare brand from France that you won’t find in other spas in Hong Kong. The scrub contains mineral and algae ingredients that helps slough away dead skin cells while making your skin soft and smooth. Some body scrubs can be a bit harsh on the skin but not this one. The products used felt gentle on our skin and didn't irritate it. The scrub was invigorating and after a quick rinse, our skin felt baby soft from head to toe and it has never looked better. Our skin no longer felt dry or dull so thumbs up to that!
Next up was our 60-minute aroma relaxation massage that incorporates smooth but firm strokes to calm your nerves and soothe your mind. Our therapist was extremely gentle and used just the right amount of pressure on our muscles without going too deeply. The massage was so relaxing that we managed to doze off pretty quickly. How we wish those 60 minutes didn’t fly by so fast!
Le Spa by Jan is a lovely spa and their body scrub is a must-try, especially this winter!
