(Featured image above)
Ever since our first visit to Asaya, we must say that there’s nowhere else in Hong Kong that approaches wellness with such extensive programming and immense thought than at Rosewood Hong Kong. We love that the members of the staff offers you guidance and options in your pursuit of ultimate balance and self-awareness.
If you’re not aware of the brand, give Sunday Riley a Google and you’ll find out why this cult skincare brand has us falling in love with it. When we found out that there was a treatment called Lift by Sunday Riley, we were immediately up for it. Available only at Asaya in Rosewood Hong Kong, Lift by Sunday Riley begins with a cleansing followed by an exfoliation. A dab of hydration cream and then massage soothes the entire skin. The lift also consists of red light LED collagen-boosting treatment and a hyaluronic acid mask to achieve the ultimate Sunday Riley glow. It’s priced at HKD $2,980 for a glorious 60-minute treatment. There is no downtime and you really do see results as soon as you leave the facial room. Considering most LED treatments themselves are quite expensive, choosing the Sunday Riley facial at Asaya that includes red light LED is actually great savings. Pre or post-facial you can also use their wet facilities and enjoy a relaxing cup of tea and snacks in their lounge. Don’t miss out on their impressive dried fruits and nut selection–simply delicious! Therapists are also able to recommend or suggest some products for your home care should you wish and considering they are cruelty-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, soy-free and vegetarian, this is one skincare brand you’d want to stock up on.
