The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - ART -

I’m the kind of per­son who loves an el­bow in my shoul­der blade – when it comes to mas­sages, that is.

So it was a dif­fer­ent kind of ex­pe­ri­ence when I stopped by Jurlique’s Burn­side Vil­lage store for their “Best of Both Worlds” treat­ment.

The hour-long version com­prises a mini Jurlique sig­na­ture fa­cial and a half-hour back mas­sage. Those with more time can ex­tend by half an hour to get the full fa­cial ex­pe­ri­ence.

Be­ing a fan and reg­u­lar user of Jurlique’s South Aus­tralian owned and pro­duced skin­care range, the fa­cial is a reg­u­lar in­dul­gence which in­volves the con­sul­tant ex­am­in­ing your skin, tai­lor­ing a re­lax­ing fa­cial to suit your needs and then walk­ing you through skin­care op­tions you can con­tinue at home. But the mas­sage por­tion was all new – and per­fectly com­ple­mented the fa­cial ex­pe­ri­ence.

At first I lamented the lack of pain­in­duc­ing pres­sure but soon got with the pro­gram – long strokes and con­stant move­ments de­signed to lull you fur­ther into the re­lax­ation zone. By treat­ment’s end not only did I have silky skin all over (thanks to a light mas­sage oil), I was right on the edge of sleep – even to the point of wip­ing a tiny bit of drool from the cor­ner of my mouth. So classy. THE TREAT­MENT Best of Both Worlds fa­cial and mas­sage. One hour: $120, 90 min­utes: $170 WHERE Jurlique Burn­side – Shop 40B, Burn­side Vil­lage, 447 Portrush Rd, Glen­side, 8379 9073 or see jurlique.com.au for your near­est out­let
