Usually if you ask me to sit still for more than 30 minutes straight I go into panic mode. So, when I was told my facial at Talise spa was going to be 75 minutes I almost backed out… but I’m so glad I didn’t.
The Treatment: Panpuri Bespoke Facial
The Low Down: After a brief consultation where the therapist analysed my skin type, she then choose the specific Panpuri products best for me.
Panpuri, a Thai brand, is a relatively new product to the local market but one that’s getting rave reports thanks to its use of pure and organic ingredients.
The main benefit of this is that your skin is less likely to have a reaction – always a bonus in our opinion.
The treatment begins with an intense cleanse followed by an light exfoliation across your face and your décolletage. Following the cleansing your chest area and shoulders are gently messaged further sending you into a zen-like state.
Then a mineral rich mask is applied to the face, and while you let it sink in and work its magic, the therapist moves her attention to your head with a relaxing massage.
When the mask is removed, the face is then gently slathered with a luscious moisturiser, which leaves your skin not only smelling delicious but also glowing.
The Results: Skin so smooth and glowing that you won’t need or want to put on make-up. Your face looks photoshopped with lines visibly reduced and pores tight.
Extras: Anyone getting a treatment in the spa can enjoy access to the sauna, steam room, plunge pool and relaxation areas. So, pack your bikini if you want to use the facilities.
