l'occitane facial

The treatment

The 90-minute facial uses products from L’Occitane’s newly launched Harmonie Divine range, which reportedly help to stimulate collagen production and lighten dark spots to boost radiance in skin. After cleansing and exfoliating skin, the therapist uses a floral-smelling facial oil to massage my shoulders, decolletage and face for 30 minutes. For the face, she focuses on stimulating pressure points such as the bridge of my nose and the temples to boost blood circulation.

Thereafter, two masks are placed onto my face and left on for 20 minutes. The first is the Harmonie Divine cream, which contains algae extracts that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin texture, while the second is a herbal mask that is spread over a sheet of gauze (doing so helps to enhance the penetration of active ingredients of the mask underneath). During this segment, the therapist gives me a soothing arm massage. Once the masks are washed off, the Harmonie Divine serum – it instantly plumps up skin and refines skin texture – is applied along with other skincare.

The verdict

My complexion appeared brighter and plumper immediately after the treatment, and skin also felt smoother. The Harmonie Divine products also came with subtle floral scents that helped to relax and calm my senses. $299, Four Seasons Spa & L’Occitane, Level 3 Four Seasons Hotel, tel: 6734-1110
