Spa Pick: Summer Lovin at Rubis Spa

Gear up for summer with Rubis spa’s Summer Purifying facial

Rubis Chambre de Beaute Massage is known for its luxurious vibe and exclusive use of brands like ILLYSSIA and Mind‘Or. Their treatments aren’t cheap, but are well worth the hefty price tag for the technology they use and the quality of their products.


First-timers benefit from a sit-down with a consultant, who will test your face with a scanner to determine skin type and specific issues. From there, they’ll suggest solutions and appropriate treatments. We learned that we had combination skin with excessive sebum output due to dehydration. Who knew?


So our consultant advised incorporating more masks and scrubs into our routine, as well as facial massages to stimulate blood flow. For our treatment, she suggested the Summer Purifying Facial (RMB980), a 90-minute facial and massage focusing on deep-cleansing and rejuvenating the skin to combat the changing seasons and prep us for summer.


We started off with a 15-minute oil massage that eased us into the mood for a little pampering before moving on to the dreaded blackhead removal process. At the hands of a novice, this is long and painful, though thankfully not the case at Rubis Spa. A state-of-the-art machine kept the process quick and tolerable.


Throughout the treatment, there was an emphasis on hydration and rejuvenation, interspersed with lots of neck and shoulder massages that really helped work out the kinks and allowed us to soak in the experience. Who knew facial muscles could be so tense? We could feel our jaw unlock and brows relax after the gentle, 10-minute facial massage.
