Unlike a normal spa with Asian water features and Balinese music tinkling over the sound system, the Lancôme Beauty Institute is more of a futuristic, urban, designer luxury beauty institute.
The surprise is the booth – a multi-sensorial cocoon surrounded by soft, white curtains and depending on the treatment, the booth turns into a session of color therapy (orange for energy; ocean blue for peace and tranquility; and green for vitality). The music is original and specifically made for Lancôme, designed to be in harmony with the motions used in the treatment.
I chose the Relaxing Treatment (RM180 for 60 mins) – they have other treatments like Whitening facial treatment (RM300) or Hydra Harmony (RM260), Anti-Ageing facial treatments with Lancôme products like Primordiale (RM180), Renergie (RM260), or Absolue (RM300), and Slimming body treatments (RM180-200).
As I gazed at the white curtains it felt like I was floating in the clouds. So don’t expect your usual Spa Massage, here at the Lancôme Beauty Institute, it’s about mixing “beauty with sensual pleasure”. The Lancôme philosophy is about stimulating each of your senses in “a perfect blend of harmony and understanding so that luxury, calmness and sensual delight reign in the depths of your being.”
