I’m one very tired momma when the clock strikes midnight every single day. You can’t imagine how much work load I have starting at 6am. I’m a multi-tasker too so not a minute is wasted coz there is always something that needs to be done or it will pile up as additional load for the next day.
Am I a workaholic? Well, in a way yes, but that’s because I work at home aside from tending the usual family chores and responsibilities. Being a mom is demanding enough but I’m lucky that my business is right at the comforts of my home.
Since I work 24/7, my husband knows that I deserve to have some alone time at least once or twice a month and I love him for that *wink*. So whenever I have time, I do some shopping and R & R. It keeps my mind off work for awhile and have a breather to recharge my whole being.
One of my fave retreat even for just a few hours is to either go to the salon, you know, have my hair re-colored and nail/foot spa or a monthly sauna, whole body scrub and massage.
Last month, I was invited to try a new craze in town – the Asian Secrets Whitening Spa at the Block. Since I’m already an avid user of the brand, I said I gotta try it!
So, Here is my In-depth Review:
Location and Set Up
The place is in a city mall but accessible from any parts of the Metro. It’s cozy and quite an attraction because of its purplish motif that can certainly catch attention.
As you can see in the above photos, they’ve covered the basics such as ambiance, lighting (though the rooms have different soft light settings) and wish you can hear the pipe in music which truly relaxed my mind and soul.
I think there are about 5-6 rooms so best to make an appointment to avoid waiting. Or if you just happen to pass by and suddenly craved for a spa, you can make a reservation and while waiting for your turn, window shop in the nearby stores. The wait is worth it, I’m telling you.
Scrub and Massage
With all spa salons, you have an option to choose which scrub you wanna use and how long the massage session will be.
Now, I’m a spa-holic and tried several places already within my city and nearby ones.
What’s new for me is that with Asian Secrets Whitening Spa, they are using their own products for scrubbing, massage and even as a final rinse off in the shower. With most spa parlors, they either use over the counter products or unknown brands.
If you haven’t tried the products yet, here is a detailed review of its awesome whitening and cleansing power – Asian Secrets Body Scrub
Going back… I chose the Asian Secrets Lulur Green Tea package – anti-aging and detox whole body scrub plus 30 minutes massage.
I mentioned above that I’m already using the scrub at home, so I kinda know what to expect. But I was proven wrong, lol.
Look at the image above (brown dirt), I hope you can see all those dead skin cells.. and there were more all over the bed and I just had a scrub session with a friend a week before! So, my body’s supposed to be quite clean supposedly, right?
Well apparently, mere common scrubbing isn’t enough!
Asian Secrets Whitening Spa has another “secret” in the hands of their professional therapists! There are certain strokes to bring out all those dead skin cells aside from relaxing your achy muscles. I truly enjoyed the massage though I usually go for at least an hour or 2, just that time with this new spa was a trial.
Since the massage wasn’t that intense yet still gave me enough relaxation, I was told to rinse off. Another good part was, they gave me an Asian Secrets Bengkoang Soap to use in the shower, I guess to seal off the whitening effect. You can take home the left over soap as that is included in the package and for you to continue and use it at home.
When I left the place, I noticed the lightness and radiance of my skin and I felt great too! Seemed like I came out from several hours of deep and intense pampering though mine only lasted more than an hour. Where else can you get this type of awesome treatment?!
How I wish they can open a branch near me so I can have the proper, most needed and well-deserved spa every month. I’ll be a sure frequent client, lol.
You’ve gotta try this and see the amazing effects! I won’t be as ecstatic like this if I didn’t enjoy every single minute of it as well as the overall effects!
