May I introduce you to your new favourite exfoliator? She’s called ExfoliKate, she’s all the way from America and she will turn you into a one-scrub-only woman!

Renowned American skincare brand Kate Somerville recently arrived in Hong Kong at Lane Crawford – and I was thrilled to be invited to their launch party (where I met the lady herself!), where I managed to get my mitts on some of their hero products. First on my to-try list was the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment… and I soon understood why Somerville has earned her reputation as the “guru of glow”!

Sense Of Touch, LKF: The Sweetest Hangover spa treatment review

As you may have worked out from this blog by now, I’m rather partial to a good spa treatment (hi Bliss Spa and Elemis!). Sense Of Touch is a spa that has a lot of buzz and positive word-of-mouth in Hong Kong (plus the multiple awards to prove it!) – and now I’m going to join the ever-mounting chorus of praises!

Thanks to Sense Of Touch, Sassy Hong Kong and the lovely Vivien, I was invited to try their newest spa treatment – The Sweetest Hangover (the fact that this branch is in Lan Kwai Fong, THE nightlife spot in HK, should mean that name makes a little more sense!). It’s a 2- hour intensive treatment comprising of an organic seaweed bath, a sugar cane scrub and a full-body massage using a combination of essential oils – and it’s amazing!

The seaweed bath actually has real pieces of Irish hand-harvested seaweed floating around in it, which made me feel like a cross between something from a wildlife documentary and an alien from Doctor Who! But sans tub in my apartment, it was just exciting to be getting to have a bath in the first place!

Overall, it was a blissful experience – detoxifying, invigorating, refreshing and relaxing. By the end, my skin just felt out of this world (and in a good way, rather than a Doctor Who alien way). You can read a full review of The Sweetest Hangover, Sense Of Touch and all the beneficial best bits of the treatment at Sassy Hong Kong here – but this is just a quick garble to say, if you get the chance to try Sense Of Touch, GO GO GO!

The Sweetest Hangover is currently on promotion until 15th September for $1290 for 2 hours and normally costs $1590.
