    good facial salons?

    Hi, since i've moved here from the UK i've discovered my skin has got really dry and tight. prob due to the air conditioning office i sit in all day haha. i've been looking around and there are HUNDREDS of beauty/facial salons so would like to get some good recommendations first.
    also would like salons that speaks (some) english, or at least the treatment menu is in english so i will know what im getting lol

    Thanks girls! (or boys).

    I sent my wife to Renaissance in Coda Plaza and she loved it...

    Glycel is pretty good. I've been using their services since 2002. Prices are reasonable and most importantly, the beauty consultants don't try hard to persuade the customer to buy their treatments and products.

    Just dont go to Modern Beauty Salons. They will not give you appointment even if you try to book 2 weeks in advance. And teh staff is really rude. I made a mistake of paying lumpsum and now regret that. Everytime I have to argue to get an appointment. I still have 9 sessions left. Once finished, I am not renewing it.

    Hi Gemini23, Glycel has a salon in Bank of East Asia Tower, Central. All salons' details can be found on their web.

    Thanks for the good tips. Im pretty sure the skin problems have to do with the diet here in Asia. It's one big carb!

    There are facials and there are facials. I wouldn't trust my skin to any of the 'street spas' around because you really don't know what product they're putting on your face and the therapists haven't been well trained. Essentially, if it's a place where you can get foot massages, neck massages, body massages and facials, stick to the massage.

    You can try pretty much any of the five star hotels, who all have good spas with professional, well known brands, but they are pricy. I notice the Nude was doing a special offer on Elemis facials at around $880 if I remember rightly which looked good. There are also spas such as Sense of Touch which are good.

    Be very very wary of buying packages because some less scrupulous spas will take your money but find a million reasons why you can't have the treatments that you paid for.

    As a first stop, I'd recommend going somewhere like the cosmetics counter at Lane Crawford. It sounds as though you might need to change your skincare regimen and you can get advice (and a heavy sales pitch!) from the various brands available for sale there.
