Spa Esprit at The Beauty Emporium

BACK TO BALANCE MASSAGE

Get yourself perfectly balanced out

Is your mind and body out of sync? Then wake up and smell Spa Esprit’s latest Back to Balance Massage! Combining 8 doTerra CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) essential oils and using a special AromaTouch Technique (ATT) that focuses on the body’s meridian and energy points, Back to Balance puts everything back in place, creating a calm and rejuvenated body and mind.

Stress, a toxic environment and an unbalanced diet all lead to a weakened immune system and poor blood circulation, causing imbalance in the body and mind. Back to Balance is the ideal remedy, bringing your mind and body back to balance in just four steps.

AromaTouch Technique
Step 1 starts with a stress-busting oil blend, Balance (spruce rosewood, frankincense and blue tansy), applied with long, healing strokes and followed by Lavender oil for calming effect.

Step 2 uses Melaleuca oil to cleanse and detoxify, while the On Guard oil blend (wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary) stimulates the body’s immune system, helping to neutralize the effects of toxic pollutants.

Step 3 combines AromaTouch oil blend (marjoram, basil, grapefruit, cypress, peppermint, lavender), followed by Deep Blue oil blend (wintergreen, peppermint, blue tansy, blue chamomile). The cool, relieving sensation of the oils will immediately ease any discomfort as they stimulate blood flow to surface tissues and support a healthy inflammatory response in the body.

Step 4 completes the treatment by using Wild Orange and Peppermint oils that will refresh and rejuvenate.

This super-scented massage will leave you supercharged, elevating your mind and body to a whole new level with its healing and rejuvenating effects. You’ll emerge feeling more zen than ever – with an energized body to boot. It’s back to balance!

REVIEW

I was invited to try Aroma Touch Healing massage sometimes last week Beauty Emporium. The therapist greeted me warmly and guiding me to the massage room and I straightly change my outfit and wear the massage kimono given by her. When I get into the room, the room was clean, tidy and I can see greeneries and trees outside the window. It gives me that calming feeling.

The room smells very nice and somehow the scent makes me feel relax and ready to be pampered. For a massage session, I am very picky in terms of music. I like instrumental music that’s calming and not played too loud for spa session. I think Spa Esprit has chosen the right music for a massage room; the music helps me to relax and forget the life outside.

Then the massage session started by the therapist asking which area I want to concentrate on. She then picked the  Balance Oil Balance (spruce rosewood, frankincense and blue tansy) and start massaging my back. I like her pressure level and massage style. To be honest I fell asleep for a few moments and enjoyed my sleep a lot :p. After 90 minutes of massage session, I feel myself to be very relaxed and fresh.

From the 4 blended oils applied on me; Balance (spruce rosewood, frankincense and blue tansy), On Guard oil blend (wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary), AromaTouch oil blend (marjoram, basil, grapefruit, cypress, peppermint, lavender), Wild Orange and Peppermint oils, I like Balance and Wild Orange & Peppermint the best 🙂 They smell calming and refreshing at the same time.

AT THE HEART OF THE ROUGE VOLUPTÉ SHINE CREATION

Rouge Volupté Shine is endowed with “back injection” technology. Discover this exciting new manufacturing process with Caroline Nègre, Scientific Communication Manager Yves Saint Laurent Beauté.

 

What makes the Rouge Volupté Shine formula so unique?
“Lipsticks are primarily composed of soft waxes and hard waxes to create the firmness of the stick, oils for shine and pigments for color. To create Rouge Volupté Shine, our laboratories played with the ratios of the various waxes and introduced a unique complex of smoothing ingredients. Rouge Volupté Shine therefore offers a unique consistency that instantly melts on contact with lips, imparting an ultra-shiny protective film that’s as clear as water, for a bitten-lip, glossy effect.”

How does the “back injection” process work? 
“The Rouge Volupté Shine manufacturing process is based on a particular technology called ‘back injection’. Unlike classic lipsticks in which the sticks are fixed in the tubes when cold, this process entails pouring the liquid base into the tubes while they are still hot, literally injecting it from the bottom up. It then solidifies as it cools off. This unique process allows the creamy texture of the new formula, rich in soft waxes, to be shaped as a stick, for a made to measure lipstick that glides on effortlessly and bathes the lips in color and shine.”

Hot news! 
There are two times more soft waxes in the Rouge Volupté Shine formula by Yves Saint Laurent Beauté than in a classical lipstick.

THE SECRET OF THE ROUGE VOLUPTÉ SHINE FORMULA

Rouge Volupté Shine contains an all-in-one cocktail of lip care, for lips that are increasingly beautiful, comfortable and plump.

  • Moisturizing action > Hyaluronic acid microspheres seal in moisture and prevent lips from drying out.
  • Antioxidant shield > Pomegranate and rice combat free radicals.
  • Protection and Extreme comfort > Emollients make the lips soft and smooth.
  • Intense shine and Luminous color > Candelilla wax combined with silicon oils sheathes the lips in a shiny film coating that enhances the color.

Protection, comfort, wet-looking shine, homogeneous color that does not smudge: Rouge Volupté Shine melts on your lips and stay with you for hours of pure pleasure, and unlimited seduction.

Edinburgh, Manchester and London Trip :)

Hello beautiful readers!

As written in my past posts, Both of us are flying off during the festive season. Meryl went to UK for Christmas and New year. I had such a wonderful time there. I feel relaxed and it was a wonderful family bonding time. I have uploaded few pictures that might sums up what I did there. The picture might not have the best quality as some of them are taken with my iPhone. Nonetheless, please enjoy 🙂

Edinburgh

It is truly a beautiful city with lots of old buildings, monuments and sculptures. There’s even a castle right in the middle of the city! The city brought my imagination to the early 19s where people are still wearing empire long dresses and driving  the classic cars as seen in the movies. It is truly a wonderful place to visit 🙂

Me and my family celebrated Christmas in Edinburgh. All the shops were closed on Christmas day so we had no choice but to stay in our place through out the day. On the 25th, we only went out for Christmas mass and Christmas dinner. The day after Christmas, we went to visit Christmas Market in Haymarket. Here are some pics I snapped:

We also go around the city, going around Edinburgh Castle and tried some Scotch Whisky. I am not a big fan of alcoholic drink but it was a great experience to visit Scotch Whisky Brewery.

Manchester

After spending 3 nights in Edinburgh, We continue our journey to Manchester. We stayed two nights there. We didn’t do much over there other than shopping and visiting Old Trafford Stadium.

London

After Manchester, it’s time to visit London. Like many other tourist, we visited the famous Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and Tower of London.

I took a pic of The Gherkin, the building looks like a bullet.

We also visited the main shopping district in London; Oxford Street, Bond Street, Piccadilly Circus and Knightsbridge (Harrods)

Since we have 6 days in London, we decided to make a visit to the ancient Stonehenge. I was so excited to see the stones myself! I know it’s only stones but they hold such an important history which excites me to see the stones! I love to read about ancient history and I am so happy that finally I have seen the stones. It took us 2-3 bus ride from London.

We booked a ticked to watch Les Misèrables at Queens Theatre. I have watched The Phantom of the Opera, Wicked and The Lion King in Singapore but I wish I could catch the show in London too. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough time for us to watch them all. Watching Les Misèrables in Queens Theatre means so much to me 🙂

On our last evening in London, we went to Stamford Bridge (Chelsea Stadium) to see a match between Chelsea vs QPR. I am not a big fan of football but for that 90 minutes match, I must admit that I enjoyed watching football at its best. Although I was disappointed that Chelsea was beaten by QPR (0-1), it was truly an enjoyable moment for me.

 

Wow what a long post! I hope you  enjoy this non related beauty post 🙂 I will post more about my beauty haul in the next few days. Please stay tuned 🙂

 

Thank you for reading
