One of the most exciting launches by Lancome this year has got to be the Absolue L’Extrait. If you haven’t tried it and want to know whether it works, make an appointment with the Lancome Beauty Institute for the Ultimate Skin Regeneration Treatment, which uses the Absolue L’Extrait in the process.
A relaxing anti-ageing ritual, the treatment begins with the therapist helping me stretch different parts of my body to release tension and to get me ready for what came after. Next, she applied exfoliating gel to my face, neck and décolleté, coupled with light massages, which felt extremely comforting.
The highlight of the session has to be the use of the Absolu L’Extrait massage petals on me. This is an exclusive device that looks like a spoon, and it works by alternating hot and cold sensations on the skin to help with microcirculation, diminish facial tension and tone skin. The soothing ritual is completed with the spraying of mist, followed by Lancome’s basic skin care regime.
The therapist handed me a mirror after the 90-minute ritual, and asked me for my comments. I’m pleased to see skin that looks healthier, clearer and more radiant. I will recommend this for fatigue skin with visible signs of ageing.
The Ultimate Skin Regeneration Treatment is available at $380 at the Lancome Beauty Institute, located at #B2-40, Marina Bay Sands, and Goodwood Park Hotel (Service Apartments).
