A Pampering Customized Olinda Facial At Body Wellness

Just last week, I got to experience a customized facial at Body Wellness Spa outlet located at Winsland House.. (Thanks to The Sample Store and Body Wellness for the invitation!)

A little background about Body Wellness:

Established in 1997, Body Wellness is one of the leaders in the local spa industry with 14 years of experience, keeping to the promise of providing highest quality services, products and customer service at fair and reasonable prices. Body Wellness provides a wide range of treatments from results-driven facials to bust enhancements, relaxing massages to rejuvenating spa therapies, and even slimming treatments, to cater to the needs of all women, making them feel and look good.

So how does the Body Wellness spa outlet at Winsland House look like?

^ The reception counter

^ At the reception area.. a nice and cozy corner to rest before or after the treatment(s)..

....While enjoying a cup of hot specially made ginger tea...

^The treatment rooms.. (There were more than 30 individual treatment rooms in this outlet, so one can expect total privacy while enjoying the treatment(s).. Sorry guys, this is a ladies spa! So only the ladies get to pamper themselves in this cozy spa... )

^The rest and relax lounge/area where customers can enjoy a complimentary foot soak, or just rest or chat with their friends in this cozy room.

^ The dressing room..Messy hair/naked face after your treatments?. Fret not, here is a dressing room where one can easily find all the tools (hair dryers/combs etc) and doll up herself for a hot date after the treatment(s)..

^ Here is the treatment room.. A clean and neat room, with the essential equipments.

Yes, I mentioned earlier that I did a customized facial and it is called Olinda Facial..

So what is Olinda Facial?

Exclusively available at Body Wellness, Olinda™ facial treatment is all about intelligent skin care treatment where it supports the skin functions at optimum level and supplies necessary nutrients to only where the skin need. The health and beauty of the skin is enhanced through the use of Body Wellness’ Olinda™ products and effective state-of-the-art equipment.

The products used exclusively in the Olinda™ facial treatment is developed with nano technology and Target Delivery System (TDS) technology. Consisting of nano particles, Olinda™ products are able to penetrate deeper into the skin’s surface to ensure more moisture and nutrients are absorbed. TDS technology is a patented process of temporarily neutralizing the skin’s barrier and allowing ingredients to reach the local tissues beyond the skin.

With the use of botanical elements and advanced technology, Olinda™ facial treatment enables you to preserve natural beauty, while supporting the skin’s natural renewal cycle and pH balance.

Regular Olinda™ facial treatment restores the skin’s perfect condition by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin firmness, lightening complexion and diminishing unwanted marks.

This treatment can even be customised to cater to the different and varied needs of individual’s skin.

Rough and Tight Skin
Our hydrating glow facial treatment helps to replenish lost moisture and restore your skin’s natural radiance and suppleness. Combined with the use of our exclusive Olinda™ Youthful Fairness Face Mask, fine lines are also softened, leaving your skin feeling firm and supple.

Visible Pores and Oily Complexion
Try this pore minimizing treatment using our Purifying Ampoules to eliminate impurities from your skin and control lipid production. This treatment helps to tighten dilated pores and controls oil sebum, giving you a matte complexion with visibly smaller pores.

Dull-looking and Dark Skin
Let our whitening facial treatment control your skin’s melanin production and fade any pigmentation, while moisturizing the skin at the same time with our specially formulated Chrysanthemum Mask. Achieving fair and radiant skin is now a breeze.

Easily Irritated Skin
This calming and soothing treatment works best for your sensitive skin. With our unique Chamomile Soft Mask to balance the pH of the skin, and reduce any redness or irritation, this treatment leaves you with better skin immunity and comfortable-feeling skin.

Saggy Skin with Fines Lines and Wrinkles
Let this anti-ageing face therapy stimulate production of collagen and elastin fibres within your dermis skin layer, boosting cellular metabolism. With the use of our exclusive Olinda™ Ultimate Face Lifting Mask, your jaw line is visibly lifted, skin toned, and wrinkles reduced.

After cleansing of my face to remove both face and eyes makeup, the beauty therapist ( Peggy was the one who did the facial for me) proceeded to do a skin check on my bared skin to determine my skin condition before informing me the type of treatment that is suitable for my skin.. I have pretty dehydrated skin with fine lines, so the facial that Peggy did for me is more to replenish lost moisture and increase moisture level on my skin.

During the 1hours+ of facial, these were the steps/treatments that Peggy did on me (as far as I can remember):
  • Welcome Touch ( A very gentle massage)
  • Cleansing
  • Toning
  • Scrubber ( or Ultra sonic peeling - it is an machine which uses a hand device (like a small metal plate) that strokes over the skin to remove dead cells for a healthier and clearer complexion.. Do not worry, this treatment is very gentle on skin)
  • Eyebrow trimming
  • Face massage ( using night cream, the massage was relaxing with the right amount of pressure in rhythmmic stroking movement)
  • Application of Moisture mask
  • Shoulder Massage ( Yes, while the moisture mask was on my skin, Peggy gave me a massage on my shoulder, neck, upper back chest using kneading, sweeping effleurage and pressure points movements)
  • A vial of Hydrating ampoule was then applied on my skin,
  • A Collagen sheet mask was then placed over my face
  • A machine ( an eletrode) was then used to glide over my mask to penetrate the ampoule into my skin.
  • After removing my mask, moisturiser, eye cream and sunblock were applied on my skin.

Wow! That was quite a number of a steps/treatments isn't? After the treatment, I could feel that my skin was smoother and more supple. No redness or allery at all. No extraction was done for the treatment that I did. However, I did ask Peggy what if the customer has got acne, she told me that the beauty therapists will customize the treatment according to the customer's skin type and that it will include a light extraction, follow by suitable treatments/machines to treat the acne.

Being an ex- beautician myself, I can say that this Olinda Facial is not the normal $40-$50 facial that you find outside...( it will easily cost at least $200+ at established beauty salons or spas) Olinda facial is considered more of a complete facial treatment as it includes the ultra sonic peeling treatment, 2 masks, ampoule as well as including a machine to further penetrate the ampoule into our skin.. This is definitely a pampering facial treatment to rejuvenate our skin and I enjoyed it, in an all ladies environment!

The good news is ... now you will get to enjoy a session of Customized Olinda™ Facial @ $28* only (60 mins, Usual Price: Up to $228)
