Kate Somerville Hong Kong is currently having a special promotion for their customers – for every HKD$3000 spent on any of their products at Kate Somerville beauty counters in Lane Crawford (TST & IFC), you will receive a 45 minute Red Carpet Glow facial for free!

I was invited to give this facial a try (lucky me!)

IMG_4404When I arrived at Lane Crawford Harbour City, the Kate Somerville beauty advisors escorted me to their special treatment room inside Lane Crawford. Spacious and highly private, the treatment rooms are neatly hidden away from the beauty counters.

There’s a comfortable waiting area outside

In the treatment room for Kate Somerville, I noticed this little tray that is so thoughtfully laid out for their customers to use – make-up remover, contact lens case & solution & a hair brush for you to freshen up after the treatment. Love these subtle touches!

As I lay down to start the facial, Yen explained to me that today’s facial uses Oxygen therapy to rejuvenate your skin and allow better absorption of  Kate Somerville’s star products – Age Arrest Hydrating Firming Mask & DermalQuench Liquid Lift.

Yen first started with ExfoliKate – a quick 2 minute intensive exfoliating treatment that you can even do it yourself at home. It uses microbeads and fruit enzymes (Could smell the pineapple & papaya scents when applied on me, kinda felt like I was having a Pina Colada on my face! Super tropical!)  to clean pores and remove dead skin cells, and salicylic acid to balance hydration. The first minute after application, my skin stung a little as the acids naturally worked its magic to remove the dead skin cells, I was told that this is normal and nothing to worry about. After 2 minutes and ExfoliKate was washed off, I immediately felt that my skin was smoother, softer and surely looked brighter! Wow! Impressive.

Next, Yen prepared the oxygen spray applicator and mixed in DermalQuench Liquid Lift treatment serum in so that it can be sprayed directly onto my newly exfoliated face mixed with oxygen to enhance the absorption effects of the serum.

DermalQuench Liquid Lift infuses the skin with 3 powerful ingredients in the advanced HydraFill complex – wrinkle-relaxing PFC-Oxygen Carriers, fast-penetrating Hyaluronic Acid and radiance boosting Rare Botanical Extracts. Yen concentrated the oxygen/DermalQuench spray on my eye area and chin as these are my problematic areas – dry and lack-lustre. Immediately after this treatment, she brought over a mirror to show me the instant effects. My complexion was even toned, eye area and chin-line looked brighter, fine lines plumped up and skin felt firmer. Complexion looked so shiny & smooth!

The last step is the Age Arrest Hydrating Firming Mask. This mask uses a Nobel Prize based Telo-5 technology to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin firmness and elasticity and significantly hydrate the skin. White Water Lily extract and pure Ceramide-3 help firm skin, improve elasticity and replenish lost lipids. I love how cooling and refreshing this gel like mask felt on my skin. After 10 minutes or so, Yen washed off the mask & applied sunscreen and I was done!

I took a photo of myself immediately after this facial without a drop of make up and I loved how beautiful my skin looked! Fresh, radiant and flawless! Literally a Red Carpet Glow!

Gentlemen’s Tonic is now in HK! Hailing from London, they recently opened their flagship store in Landmark, Central. It is a unique establishment where the modern man meets old-school barbershop which fits perfectly into the heart of the Central Business District area in Hong Kong where fashionable business executives are a plenty. Catered exclusively to the needs of men, which their classy leather barber chairs and more butch-like chic interior. And just across Gentlemen’s Tonic is Gentlemen’s Whisky. Who doesn’t want a nice shot of Whiskey after having a nice pampering haircut or facial after a long, exhausting day in the office?
