If you’re as terrified of having hot wax being poured directly onto your skin straight off a candle, then I reckon you should definitely try the very exotic YonKA Candle massage. I just tried this incredible treatment at Lily Pond Spa, Dubai, over the weekend and came away completely amazed!
Mostly because it was a special candle made completely out of African shea butter, NOT wax. The skilled masseuse lit the candle and gently let the warm, titillating shea butter pour over me. Did it burn? Ofcourse not! The shea butter and the YonKa massage worked together to make sure I was rejuvenated, refreshed and ready for the week ahead. Oh did I mention the shea butter smells heavenly?
Just a small note: Its always advisable to keep the shea butter on atleast for 5 hours after the massage, so the skin can soak up as much moisture from it, as it can. I left it on overnight for an unbelievably soft and refreshed skin the next day!
Since Lily Pond Spa had a lavish line up of services to pick from, I decided some more pampering couldn’t hurt. Half a day spent in the serene, beautiful spa was a day well spent, afterall (Classic rationalization, psychologists would say but who’s complaining). I moved on to the other side of the sprawling spa into the beauty chamber for a taste of the famed ‘Grand Classique’ facial. I had heard so much about the YonKa treatment and it’s effects that I simply had to sample it myself.
Did it match my expectations? Well, safe to say it far exceeded them! Starting from the YonKa essential oil spray, to the scub, micro peel, purifying mask to the final facial massage, it was truly invigorating to say the least. Plus, I think the masseuse, Maha, had the softest hands in the world, without a doubt! The best part about the Grand Classique YonKa facial is that the results are seen immediately and last for 4 weeks!
In all, thanks to Lily Pond Spa, it was easily of one my best weekends in a long time. Highly recommended for that much needed spa day off.
