#SpaSunday: Cleopatra’s Spa, Wafi
The treatment: Medi Diamond Facial treatment program
Cleopatra’s Spa is hands-down one of the finest spas that still exists from back in the day. The launch of their latest treatment brought to our attention diamonds, facial, and deep cleansing – three trigger words that catch our attention every time.
I headed there to indulge in this treatment using Medi-Diamond products (a Korean-skincare range), and really just get some shut-eye while the therapist works her magic. Here, you slip into your robe and head to the room to lay unwind on a heated bed. The facial begins with a thorough cleanse using an enzyme powder with diamond particles as light as sparkly fairy dust. Once the face is washed, and cleansed with a warm cloth, the eye area is cleaned to remove all traces of makeup. Steam is applied after which the extraction (blackhead removal) takes place – it sounds gross but I kind of like it. The best part of the treatment is always the mask and massage. To boost your skin with vitamins and antioxidants, a thick mask is applied all over the face – of course with diamond particles – protecting it from pollution, anti-aging and skin congestion. Once wiped off with a warm cloth, your skin instantly feels clean, and a mist containing serum, toner and the diamond dust particles is sprayed all over your face and neck. Eye cream and sunscreen (SPF 50) is massaged on and it’s time to take a look in the mirror. Your face glows and it almost looks like you have a filter or foundation on it – it’s unbelievable.
