2. Angels Dream

Angels Dream was born out of the owner’s admiration of the Okinawan residents’ longevity. While they are the one-stop spa for body, hair, nails and waxing treatments, they are especially gifted in the facial department. Using only all-natural and acclaimed French and German brands, their facials go from organic to anti-ageing to deep-cleansing to anti-sensitive.

Angel’s Dream favourite acne-treatment is the Babor Mattifying and Purifying Ampoule Facial. The skin is deeply cleansed with either Babor Cleansing Oil or Babor Enzyme Cleanser to draw out even the smallest impurities. Right after, the skin will be exfoliated with Babor AHA peel to further digest the congestion in the pores for 5 minutes. This gentle peel prepares the skin for extraction of whitehead, blackhead and other congestions.

The pores are then disinfected and shrunk with the Babor Active Purifier Ampoule. For 10 minutes, the Babor Pure Mask is slathered on to help absorb excess sebum and oil on the skin. The entire facial then comes to a close with the application of Babor Rose Toner, Plus Ampoule, Balancing Cream and SPF50.
