* This is not a sponsored review but I was given a voucher to try Asian Secrets Whitening Spa and its products. Please read Full Disclosure at https://www.samut-sari.com/disclosure/.
I’m a bit picky when it comes to cleansing my body inside and out. Though it doesn’t stop me from trying out new massage and spa salons as well as products – new and old, branded or not.
A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to be chosen to try a newly opened spa at The Block in Sm City North Edsa. It was a long long way from home and practically on the other side of the Metro, but since I’m an avid fan and user of the brand, I gave Asian Secrets Whitening Spa a piece of my time.
It was their soft opening day and a few fellow bloggers I know were in attendance. After a little chit chat and a few bites of what they had for cocktails, my friend and I headed to the counter to check out their packages.
In short, I had to try it! Check out their facilities and see how neat and relaxing the place is….
I tried the body scrub with 30 minutes massage and boy, I wanted some more! The scent of Asian Secrets Lulur Green Tea truly relaxed my senses and as I am in that stage where aging is a huge dilemma, I badly needed a skin detox.
It was an awesome feeling after the whole process and honestly, when I touched my skin, it was smooth and smelt like a baby *wink*
I have been using Asian Secrets products at home but learned a few tricks from the therapist. So, when it’s time to have my monthly skin detox, you bet I’m gonna scrub the proper way!

The spa just opened last July 11, 2013 and has now made the Lulur Whitening Ritual available to everyone. The Javanese Lulur, a 300-year-old royal purifying ritual, was once exclusively used by brides-to-be from the royalty, 40 days before their wedding day. Javanese princesses were treated with the Lulur ritual everyday to whiten and smoothen their skin so that they will be most attractive especially on their most awaited day. This royal Javanese ritual became a tradition passed down through generations, and has now been enjoyed as a purifying indulgence by men and women. This privilege can now be enjoyed at the Asian Secrets Whitening Spa as a whitening and relaxing experience.
About the Services
One of the best ways to keep your skin young and attractive is to regularly get a body scrub. Body scrubs improve skin complexion as it polishes the skin and removes dead skin cells. However, you should be careful that the body scrub you use will not be harsh to your skin. Unlike the jagged edges of many body scrubs, the Asian Secrets scrub has spherical beads that gently roll over the skin when applied. This gentle exfoliation leaves your skin smooth and supple without being abrasive to your skin.
The Asian Secrets Whitening Spa specializes in whitening body scrub services. Our therapists have been professionally trained in the Lulur dry scrubbing method that effectively yet gently exfoliates the skin. Moreover, the spa’s ritual has been developed to target body areas prone to darkening, giving the skin an even-toned and whiter glow.
A signature massage service is also offered for individuals who want to relax and unwind. Unlike the typical massage, which uses massage oils, the Asian Secrets Whitening Spa uses its signature whitening body lotion to hydrate and whiten the skin. Its signature massage also consists of the spa’s signature body strokes that are targeted to relieve stress and rejuvenate the body.
The spa also offers a whitening body wrap services for those who want to fully indulge and whitening their skin.
The spa highly recommends its relaxing and whitening treatment packages where you can enjoy both the whitening body scrub and signature massage. This treatment starts with a total body exfoliation using the Lulur body scrub recipe. Traditional dry scrubbing is done using the spa’s signature sequence specifically made to effectively remove dead skin while also targeting areas prone to darkening. The lulur scrub is followed by a warm bath while using the Asian Secrets Bengkoang soap. The ritual is completed by the spa’s signature massage. This luxurious indulgence takes approximately 100 minutes (including bath time). After the Lulur treatment, the skin immediately becomes soft, smooth and glowing.

Fascinating to learn about the skin whitening ritual of the past and how it’s applied in current day. The treatments sound wonderful!
Thanks for the review on the new spa and the products they have to offer. I live in another state but it is nice to know I can order them. Thanks again. Sounds like you truly enjoyed yourself.
wow would like to try these products
I have never heard of a “whitening spa,” very interesting, it’s actually detoxifying” but they use the word “whitening”. Thank you for this review.
Very interesting…the history of the whitening treatment!
