A non-invasive way to anti-ageing.
The Mandarin Spa, together with famed Australian rejuvenation guru Gaylia Kristensen, is introducing a new anti-ageing facial using skincare botanicals bio-engineered with cutting-edge polypeptide and protein technologies.
We had a chat with Gaylia, who has spent the last 2o years in the beauty industry and decided to start her own luxury beauty line when she returned to her home country. The anti-ageing line was conceptualised to incorporate the range of natural Australian botanicals with the best anti-ageing technology available. The good news is her products are safe, containing no petrochemicals, mineral oil, parabens, damaging detergents or harsh toxic additives.
The new facial treatment currently offered by the Mandarin by Kristensen is called the Utopia Advanced Anti-Ageing Facial.
The full 90 minute treatment kicks off with a deep cleanse and exfoliation to renew and brighten the skin, using her Gentle Orange Blossom Cleanser and Velvet Facial Polish. This is followed by a lifting, toning massage with Kristensen’s Passion Oil that takes about 20 minutes to relieve facial muscles, stimulate the cells and – as if that wasn’t enough for us – it smells absolutely heavenly. Finally, a pure plant collagen facial mask is applied to help stimulate collagen and elastin production, creating an instant lift, smoothing away lines and wrinkles to repair the appearance of UV-damaged skin.
We suggest arriving early, at least 30 minutes before your appointment, so you can start to wind down and enjoy the spa’s heat and water facilities which include a Chinese herb steam room and a hydrotherapy Kneipp pool as well as experience showers.
The Mandarin Salon will also offer a 45 minute Gaylia Kristensen Advanced Anti-Ageing Eye or Neck Treatment that can be enjoyed as a tune-up between sessions after the full Utopia treatment. Gaylia Kristensen’s exclusive skincare product line are also on sale at the spa.
