Asian Secrets Whitening Spa, a first of its kind, is now open to de-stress us at The Block SM City North EDSA. Let me reiterate that -- it's a whitening spa. In a country like ours where everyone would just do anything to get fairer skin, I'm almost sure Asian Secrets will be fully-booked from here on now.

Asian Secrets has been known of its Lulur Whitening Ritual, a 300-year-old royal purifying ritual that was once exclusively used by brides-to-be from the Javanese royalty, 40 days before their wedding day to whiten and smoothen their skin so that they will be most attractive especially on their most awaited day. 

The Asian Secrets Whitening Spa specializes in whitening body scrub services. Their therapists have been professionally trained in the Lulur dry scrubbing method that effectively yet gently exfoliates the skin and improve skin complexion as it removes dead skin cells. 

For those of you who, like me, isn't really into skin whitening, the spa’s ritual might still be beneficial to you as it has been developed to even out the skin tone (something you need despite of wanting a tan) by targeting body areas prone to darkening.

A signature massage service is also offered for individuals who want to relax and unwind. Unlike the typical massage, which uses massage oils, the Asian Secrets Whitening Spa uses its signature whitening body lotion to hydrate and whiten the skin. Its signature massage also consists of the spa’s signature body strokes that are targeted to relieve stress and rejuvenate the body. The spa also offers whitening body wrap services for those who want to fully indulge and whiten their skin.

Aside from this, Lulur whitening facials are now offered at the spa to beautifully brighten the complexion and to complete the whitening experience. One can choose from a range of facial services from express brightening facials, to facials with comedone extractions, and to facial services with infused lymphatic facial massage.

I've personally tried the Relaxing and Brightening Facial and after an hour the treatment, I immediately noticed the glow of my skin. The relaxing massage that came with the treatment also relieved my tense facial muscles by triggering lymphatic flow to cleanse the face of toxins. And with their reasonable rates, you can come back regularly to see faster results.

And more good news for us ladies, especially to those who lives miles away from north. You can still have the Lulur ritual at home with Asian Secrets Lulur Facial scrub that's readily available now in beauty outlets and department stores. 

Following the success of Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub, the Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub is another breakthrough moisturizing and whitening scrub by Asian Secrets, now specially formulated for the face.

A tried and tested beauty secret, many users of Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub have been clamoring for something that will give them the same effect on their face. Because the skin on the face is more sensitive, and requires special attention, Asian Secrets has come up with a formulation that is more delicate and yet equally effective in whitening and moisturizing facial skin. It contains Bengkoang (Yam Bean in English or Singkamas in Filipino) a traditional Indonesian whitening ingredient. Bengkoang extract has natural whitening properties and can make skin look brighter and more radiant, contains vitamins C & E which are known as antioxidants that can fight harmful pollution from the environment to keep skin healthy.

I was hanging out with Cris at the launch of the spa and she showed me how to use Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub by doing a demo on her wrist. Put a small amount on your finger tips, apply on dry skin and massage in a gentle circular motion. Rinse with water and use 2-3x a week to lighten the skin. 

See how Cris' left wrist (the one where the arrow points at) is whiter as compared to her right wrist. Her left wrist was where she applied Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub for about 20 seconds.

Clearly, as seen on the photo above, the facial scrub is very effective in whitening. Plus with the price range, anyone can get hold of it and enjoy its benefits!
