Facial fiesta time!
Long weekend got you feeling a little worse for wear? Too many celebratory shots got you feeling like there are suitcases under your eyes along with the usual unwelcome bags? Alright, let’s get that skin pampered.
BloomMe has come to you and your faces aid by putting together a list of the must-have facials in Central. Go on, treat yourself.
Caudalie was founded in 1993 in Bordeaux France by Mathilde Thomas and her husband Bertrand. The vision for anti-aging, all natural skincare was inspired by Mathilde’s family vineyard, where she discovered that the grape she had harvested were ridiculously beneficial for the skin (as well as perfect for making delicious wine, what a miracle fruit!). Said to be more effective at reducing wrinkles than vitamin E, Polyphenols are exactly what you need to fight the ageing effects of Hong Kong life (pollution, humidity, typhoons, cows on the road in Sai Kung causing traffic jams, etc).
Based on their renowned Vinothérapie®Spa in Europe, expect welcome tea before your treatment and a bag of carefully chosen goodies to continue your French cosmetic addiction long after you’ve left the salon.
Facial of choice:
An ideal treatment for those suffering from the effects of pollution or stress, this facial combines the famous grape-seed Polyphenol and vitamin C to revitalise your skin. You will get a deep cleansing, exfoliation, and a detoxifying mask made of pink clay, coffee, and grapes (all our favourite things). The 80 minutes will fly by and leave you and your skin wanting more. Book now for $1,080

The cutest oasis in Hong Kong, Ayana is a breath of fresh air in our concrete jungle. Surrounded by neon lights and high buildings, Ayana is renowned for their high quality facials, hot stone massages, and aromatherapy treatments. A cosy atmosphere will greet you when you walk through the door, and the soothing scents of something exotic and delicious sets the tone for your upcoming pampering session.
In addition to a wonderful facial, Ayana will give you a unique lymphatic and pressure point massage which leaves your face rejuvenated and fresh. It is said that massaging certain points will remove toxins and fluid build up under your skin, what else could you ask for?
Facial of choice:
Who doesn’t love roses? And who doesn’t love deep exfoliation? Why not both? (cue village party to celebrate the duo). This hour long session is fantastic for soothing irritated skin and bringing life back to your upper epidermis. The smell of rose and the warmed massage table will have yo relaxed in seconds, and may even send you to sleep (even if you do sleep, you’ll wake up a new person!). Book now for $690HKD

In amongst all the crazy that is Halloween preparations on Pottinger street is a place of mind, nature, art, and beauty. Drawing on natural ingredients such as manuka honey and orange blossom, this divine spa is quickly becoming the go-to spa for those feeling refreshed and grounded from yoga and meditation. Continue on with your well-being buzz and surround yourself with good vibes in this back-to-nature spa.
In addition to treatments, this spa also has a pretty decent selection of products to cover all your beauty needs. Be sure to ask your technician after your treatment what they would recommend your skin needs. Some treatments are highly effective at treating skin sensitivities, whilst others are great at hydrating tired skin and can help to combat your office air-conditioning (this dries your skin like no tomorrow).

Aptly named after the stunning flower, Peony and Peony skincare offers hassle free facials with high quality treatments and a feeling of regality that comes with 5-star service. With a fabulous range of treatments from facials to massages, this small spa has something for everyone. Using products imported from the US, you’ll be delighted to hear that you’ll be frothing over their preservative-free, chemical-free, filler-free products. With some products having the tendency to over saturate with chemicals, this spa brings it back to basic with minimum active ingredients.
When you arrive at your appointment (10 minutes early to fill out paper work of course), your technician will sit down to discuss with you any concerns or problems you are having with your skin. This is a great way to create a skin-plan and can also help you discover why you have pimples on your cheeks near your ears (Bloom Me protip: most likely from not cleaning your phone, give it a wipe during the day and see if that helps).
Facial of choice
You can’t go wrong with simplicity. Using high-quality imported products, this cooling facial will refresh and soothe your skin in minutes (although the treatment lasts 60 minutes). You’ll also have the option of extractions which can remove any hidden blackheads or submerged pimples (aka lurkers). Say yes to glow! Book now for $880
