I had the pleasure to pamper my skin after much running around, late nights and back to back events off-late. Every girl enjoys indulging into a relaxing massage, rejuvenating facial or perhaps painting nails!
I think, for the most part I need an excuse to just book myself in for a treatment every now and then and thats when I love connecting with myself, my senses and getting some ‘me time’!
TWR(The White Room) spa is tucked between a lineup of cafes, restaurants and stores in Motor City on the left as you drive in. As I walked in, I introduced myself and due to my prior appointment they were expecting me there. I was told to wait for a few minutes, as they were prepping up the room for my treatment.
TWR offers understated luxury as the white sophisticated interiors bring in a sense of calmness, tranquility and help you relax even further while getting your treatment done. The decor is basic, with white details throughout, tea lights and the ambient music sets tone to the entire experience at the spa.
Treatment: Mini Facial AED90
Firstly, before the treatment started I was asked about the texture of my skin briefly as this was a mini facial and did not require much details to start of with. After explaining about my skin type, I quickly changed and settled down for the treatment to start. The fragrant tea lights and a dim lamp placed on the corner set my mood right on for the treatment. Without much delay the treatment began and the first step was makeup removal which took about 5-7 mins to thoroughly remove the makeup(keeping in mind the eye-makeup takes a bit longer to remove).
Moving on to the next step, the therapist then cleansed my face while gently massaging my face and I think I was half asleep by then. You love it when someone massages your face and touches certain points on your face that you din’t know even existed :D!! After cleansing, she then used a scrub from a French Skincare brand – YONKA, known for its extensive range of beauty and skin care products. The scrub honestly smelled like vicks and after a thought, I asked the therapist if that was Vicks?! …and we both had a laugh while she explained that the fragrance is very similar to vicks although, its not that! The scrub was smooth and settled down on the skin really well with no mini granules in it. After 2 minutes or so the therapist started to rub the scrub off my face little by little which in the real sense was removing the dead skin from my face.
Thereafter, she washed off my face thoroughly with a damp facial towel and applied a hydrating cream to finish off, while massaging my face, neck and shoulders.
The moment I looked into the mirror, I felt that my skin thanked me for the treatment as it felt incredibly baby soft, smooth and radiant. I was ready to take on to the week ahead with a fresher and rejuvenated look. The results lasted way longer than I anticipated considering it was a mini facial. The makeup went on pretty well on the skin, there was visibly no dead skin and the dehydrated skin patches were gone.
Recommendation: I highly recommend the mini facial for women who are on the go and who want instant results in less time.
- The interiors are elegant and minimalistic with white being the dominant colour that is quite relaxing and soothing
- The treatment results were great
- Staff was friendly and welcoming
- The ambient music was on point
Take note: You might want to consider booking in advance as the spa can get quite busy during the weekends or in the evenings on weekdays as well.
Here are a few more pictures from the spa featuring mani-pedi stations, makeup station, nail art and extension stations and a room that is an extension to the mani-pedi stations fitted with a TV, magazines and books that you might want to read while your hands and feet get some much needed attention.
