The qualities that changed my mind:
1 Luxurious Space with Art Theme
This spatial art-themed spa is divided into seven cabins, each with a different theme from nature. Unlike traditional facial cabins, the rooms are well ventilated, cool, spacious and decked with wall paper that brings an element of nature into the room. The feature wall of each treatment room is decked with floor to ceiling scenes of the Santorini Aegean Sea, generic forest, a golf course, the ocean and icy mountain that evoke a sense of restfulness and relaxation upon walking into the rooms.
2 Lavish Beddings
Walking into the cabin, I was warmly welcomed by the lush comforter, sewn with ruffles and glistening fabrics that add a touch of class to the whole room.
3 Comfortable and Effective Beauty Session
Most importantly, the facial treatment was done at a comfortable pace with results in one hour. Supreme QX Beauty Spa at Pacific Plaza is the first certified spa offering bSoul Luxe ingredients and TCM-inspired massage techniques that hail from the East. bSoul which comes from Italy contains eco-friendly phytoceuticals. Based on molecular extracts of plants, its Phytoceutical Complex enhances the treatments with biocompatibility, providing natural foods for the skin with strong healing benefits. It is great for sensitive skin as it is free of parabens, petroleum, SLES, paraffins, silicones, PEG and not tested on animals. Factor vegans and animal lovers would be most happy to know.
The pace of the treatment and massage strokes of the therapist was so comfortable that I was lulled to sleep barely a few minutes into the massage. Most importantly the East-meets-West treatment includes point massage strokes that tone the skin, reduce puffiness caused by water retention and improve blood circulation. I woke up to calmer complexion, more even skin tone, toned skin and with a sharper V-shape.
My skin became softer to the touch immediately, and it felt just as soft the next morning.

R.E.S.P.E.C.T. That's what bSoul is About
The philosophy behind bSoul is to respect your skin and heal it lovingly and gently with botanical products minus common skin irritants. To illustrate this point, the staff at Supreme Q.X. Beauty Spa Pacific Plaza did a thorough skin analysis using a machine from Korean.
They found that I have thin skin which results in uneven patches.

Notice the sharper jawline?
Further analysis on the hyperpigmentation on my skin, they found that some of the freckle like spots had a white spot inside. This means that a light-based treatment I had undergone in the past did not successfully eradicate the spot. To treat my skin, the suggestion is to heal and strengthen the skin gently using their basic range. They suggest using their day cream for the day and ply on a sun protection only when I would be staying outdoors for long hours or during outdoor exercises. The key point is to respect the skin.
They also suggested that I do not try to make my freckles "disappear" but to treat my skin gently with bSoul botanical products after my skin has regained its resilience.
When moisturising skin, it is better to gently pat the formulation onto the skin using the warmth of our palms, than to massage it into the skin with our fingers. Reason being, the skin can only absorb a certain amount of nutrients at a time, massaging with our finger tips will not help much. However, the warmth of our palms is able boost absorption of the nutrients from the formulation deeper into the skin. I was also told that a little of bSoul cream or lotions can go a long way, hence it would be a waste to slather on too much of the product.
