Rodial Venom Freeze Facial
Chrysalis Spa at Damac Maison hotel is our coveted find. All gold, black and white and glitzy – it’s on-trend opulence at its best.
The spa treatments are in line with this modern vibe with eclectic offerings. My interest piqued, I threw caution to the wind by booking the latest must-try – a Rodial Venom Freeze facial. Using Rodial products, (the skincare brand with a faithful all-star following – Angelina Jolie and Beyoncé included) the facial takes the Chinese Proverb ‘fight poison with poison’ literally by fighting toxins in the skin that accelerate ageing with, yes, snake venom. The products from the Glamoxy snake collection contain synthetic ingredients inspired by the temple-viper snake’s venom, my therapist Adyta explained. With a face inhalation, rigorous cleansing, toning and exfoliation, Adyta expertly ironed out my crinkles, gently massaging as she went. The snake venom serum and mask that came next didn’t sting, only leaving a slightly cold sensation across my face – a small price for newly fresh, plump skin that defied my numerical age.
