One of my appointments today entailed checking out Bliss, which is located within Sephora at ION Orchard. As far as I’m concerned, 2 things about spas in Singapore generally worry me. Firstly, it’s the fact that they are all dimly-lit and play the same gurgling-water, chirping-bird or harp-string CD that’s both old and dated. Second, it’s a given that at most spas in Singapore the therapists will try to hard-sell another package while you’re trying to enjoy the actual facial/massage/treatment, which really isn’t professional in the first place.
Which brings me back to Bliss. Besides being a complete day spa with a full selection of services, it is also brightly-lit and filled with friendly, affable staff. And that’s not all. They’ve also got their own product line which left me intrigued. A sucker for things that are excellently packaged, some of the products I brought back to try out include the Lemon + Sage Body Butter (smells like some delectable cake icing that’s good enough to eat), the Fabulous Foaming Face Wash (what can I say, I ran out of SK-II) and most embarassingly, something named The Love Handler.
Termed ‘a liquid workout for lazy abdominals’, I took it in vain hope that it would help me with my love handles and ever-growing beer gut. I reasoned that since not everyone is born with Nakata’s abs we could all use any help we could get.
I’m going to start using all 3 products, and if they are really any good I’ll be back at Bliss to start on the facials and treatments available. And if there are any Bliss fans out there I would love to hear what you’ve got to say about their products or spa services.
