The Test Drive: Bespoke Pro-Youth Renewal Treatment At Chuan Spa
Viva designer Lucy Casley discovers full body indulgence inside Cordis Auckland's signature spa
The promise: A full body exfoliation and massage followed by an indulgent Pro-Youth IT Facial and a complimentary Perfect Shape Neck Treatment to tighten and tone the delicate neck area.
The practice: My one-hour taste of the Bespoke Pro-Youth Renewal Treatment began with a full body exfoliation with calming fluid movements using Sothys Silhouette Exfoliant.
A hot shower removed all traces of the scrub, and was followed by a relaxing massage using Sothys Pro-Youth body serum, designed for smoothing and firming.
Tight spots on the back area were targeted with just the right amount of firmness. I am told these two practices are great for cellulite and dry skin.
A short, indulgent head massage finished things off.
The place: Chuan Spa at Cordis, 83 Symonds St, Auckland. See Chuanspa.co.nz.
The price: The full package treatment is $420 Monday-Thursday or $440 Friday-Sunday for 2 hours 45 minutes. This includes self-parking and the use of the heated roof-top pool, spa pool, sauna and herbal steam room.
The verdict: This long, full-body rejuvenation is ideal if you are in need of some true head-to-toe relaxation that targets anti-ageing. My skin felt smoot
