THE YU­TAKA WAY

Singapore Tatler - - STYLE BEAUTY -

Along with its new for­mu­la­tion, a new di­men­sion was added to the fa­cial treat­ment of Shi­seido Fu­ture So­lu­tion LX Yu­taka—sound. The signature Yu­taka fa­cial treat­ment is now com­ple­mented with a re­lax­ing au­ral reper­toire, a com­po­si­tion of nat­u­ral sounds recorded at Mount Koya. Coined the Yu­taka Omote­nashi Sound, this sound­track flows with the rhythm of the mas­sage ther­a­pist’s arm move­ments; a fa­cial tech­nique unique to Shi­seido. New tools—the Yu­taka Mas­sager and Yu­taka Stone—have also been added to the hour-long fa­cial treat­ment to en­hance re­lax­ation and com­plete the sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence. Both con­trap­tions are made of tra­di­tional Ja­panese Imari Nabeshima porce­lain; both are heated and the for­mer is smoothed over the face, neck, decol­letage and up­per arms dur­ing the fa­cial, while the lat­ter is placed on the stom­ach. Was the fa­cial ef­fec­tive? First off, the prod­ucts were a dream on my skin; they were ab­sorbed ef­fort­lessly and my face looked softer and brighter im­me­di­ately af­ter. I hardly no­ticed the sound­track in the back­ground dur­ing the fa­cial, though the soft fra­grance of the skin­care range helped with re­lax­ation. The ther­a­pist was highly skilled, ap­ply­ing feather-light touches dur­ing cleans­ing and firmer strokes when us­ing the Yu­taka Mas­sager. I was lulled to sleep and woke up re­freshed with soft, plump and touch­able skin.
