Pro-Col­la­gen Quartz Lift Fa­cial

Friday - - Spa Reviews -

Troop­ing into the serene, un­der­stated lux­ury of the Ba­li­nese Mandara Spa on the third floor of the H Ho­tel, I felt a lit­tle scep­ti­cal. The Elemis Pro-Col­la­gen Quartz Lift Fa­cial came with a big claim (al­beit a clin­i­cally proven one). I read it re­duces wrin­kles by up to 94 per cent and im­proves skin firm­ness by up to 57 per cent in one treat­ment. Yes, one! And it doesn’t in­volve nee­dles or knives. I was will­ing to call its bluff.

How­ever, once I was re­lax­ing on a leather re­cliner in the softly lit treat­ment room, my ques­tion­ing mind switched off, just like that.

My ther­a­pist Ari be­gan with a gen­tle but firm hand mas­sage on my neck, tem­ples and cheeks. This treat­ment uses Elemis Pro-Col­la­gen prod­ucts burst­ing with the re­ju­ve­nat­ing ma­rine won­ders of brown al­gae (Pad­ina Pavon­ica) and the elec­tri­cal en­ergy of quartz min­er­als and red co­ral that both re­ju­ve­nate and hy­drate thirsty skin and are all de­signed to wipe out crow’s feet, lines and years of sun dam­age.

Mas­sage over, and it felt like the clock had turned back 10 years. Even friends and fam­ily com­mented on my mer­maid-like ma­rine ra­di­ance, and I could com­fort­ably go with­out makeup for a few days af­ter­wards and still looked ra­di­ant and flaw­less!

Com­bin­ing the best of sci­en­tific re­search and age-old Ba­li­nese mas­sage tech­niques, this is one of the best fa­cials I’ve ever had. Fac­tor it in for times when you want to add a bit of wow fac­tor to your life.
