The Spa Experience

Going to the private tent for my facial express

It's been a long time since I last had a pampering session. It's because of my very busy sched and although it sounds impossible, I wish I could be pampered for less than an hour because time is very precious to me. 

It was impossible until I've found out about The Spa's Express Facial. It's a 30-minute facial which uses Pevonia Botanica products. Well, I've had facials from other derm clinics and I thought this will just be a normal facial experience to me; but it wasn't.

I want this at home! Hahaha! :)

When I walked inside The Spa's Trinoma branch, you will feel the relaxing ambiance even from the reception area. Since it's my first time at The Spa, I filled up a sheet and then they gave me a key for my locker. The attendant inside gave me my robe and slippers and asked if I want a shower. If only I don't have my period that day I would have said yes but I just changed to my robes and headed to the couches inside a more dimly lit room. She, then, offered me ginger tea which tasted a bit spicy but still sweet. I loved the taste. 

Happy and satisfied Gelleesh! :)

Upon finishing my ginger tea, I was lead to my own tent (cool) and I felt the relaxing Mediterranean ambiance inside. As I sat on the soft reclining couch, the background music adds up on the relaxing feel. The name of my therapist was Jhen and she handled my face softly and that is how someone should treat a face. Unlike the other facials I've had wherein the therapist would make "chika" all throughout the whole process; thus preventing you from relaxing, my therapist here was very subtle and really made me relax throughout the whole process.

My favorite part was actually the last massage. It made me crave for a massage treatment next time. After the whole procedure was done, Jhen humbly asked if I would like a tip envelope and with what she did of course I said yes. She offered me another cup of ginger tea then after finishing it, I changed to my normal clothes and went out with a smile etched on my face until I got home and went to sleep.

I promised myself I would come back at least once or two times a month. The relaxing experience I had there was amazing and I know I'm worth it. The Express Facial costs P700-P900 and promise, it is all worth it.

The Spa Branches are located at: Acropolis | Trinoma | Alabang | Greenbelt | The Fort | Rockwell | Eastwood and you can visit them on the web at

P.S. I forgot my camera so sorry for the low-res photos. I was almost late for work that day that's why I accidentally left my camera. See? I need to relax! Hahaha!

  5. I only went to spa once na may thai massage! Masarap na masakit sa katawan ung massage.

  6. I agree with some therapists who like to make chika. Lol. Nothing's wrong sana with them asking questions but hopefully, after the session instead. Your post made me miss my all-time favorite masseuse in Baguio.
