On my birthday I got a spa voucher from the girls. This morning I had booked in for a 2 hour facial treatment, and I was really looking forward to it.
Thann Spa is rumoured to be one of the better spas here in Brunei, and even though it was really nice and I did enjoy every minute of my treatment (gosh, all those creams smelled super yummy!) - it wasn't quite what I thought I had booked in for.
I don't get, why no matter what kind of treatment you book here (this goes for the other spas I've tried as well) - you get BACK, NECK and HAND massage too?! I mean, I wanted just a f-a-c-i-a-l..? It's so weird.
Plus, the facials out here are more like 'face massages' with lots of different (nice-smelling!) creams, rather than cleansing treatments. When I get a facial, I want to feel that my face gets clean in a deep down way, that I can't do myself. You don't get that here, or maybe I've just not found the right place, or treatment yet.
Anyway, I sure have a smooth, soft and nice-smelling face right now and it was 2 hours of blissful relaxation. Great start to the weekend!
