Gaylia Kristensen Debuts at The Mandarin Spa
On 1 September 2011, The Mandarin Spa exclusively introduces a facial and skincare product line from Australia’s premier skincare pioneer, Gaylia Kristensen.
Kristensen’s cutting-edge, anti-ageing treatments and products provide a natural alternative to cosmetic injections and surgery. Her products do not contain petrochemicals, mineral oils, parabens, harsh detergents or toxic ingredients and are perfect for women over 40 as well as acting as prevention for those aged 25 to 40.
The Mandarin Spa will offer an exclusive “Utopia” facial that will treat the face, eyes and neck area. This 90-minute treatment will start with a cleanse and exfoliation to renew and brighten the skin, before guests enjoy a toning and relaxing massage using passion oil to introduce a huge surge of hydration that will rebuild and repair. A facial mask made of pure plant collagen will then be applied to help stimulate and boost the production of collagen and elastin, creating an instant lift and improving the appearance of UV-damaged skin. The facial is priced from HKD2,000 and guests can also purchase a full range of Gaylia Kristensen products, allowing them to continue the good work at home.
